Wearing a waist shaper after pregnancy is one of the hottest trends for new mums that would like get their bodies in shape as quickly as possible post-baby. Some of the sexiest mamas in Hollywood, such as Ciara, Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian, credit waist training for helping them snap back into their pre-pregnancy bodies. Non-celebrity mothers are following the lead of these celebrities and jumping onto the waist training bandwagon in an effort to get that perfect hourglass shape after pregnancy.
So what is exactly is waist training? It involves wearing a corset that is made of stiff latex, which is a type of strong and elasticated material that covers the area around the abdomen. The waist trainer cinches the waist in order to create the appearance of a slim waistline through the combination of support as well as compression of the abdominal area.
The good thing about wearing a waist shaper after pregnancy is that immediately after you put it on, you will see noticeable results. The shaper will pull in your waist in order to create a slimmer and smoother appearance while also giving you that hourglass figure that you desire. The tightness of the waist trainer also causes thermal activity that leads to loss of excess fat.
A lot of women have the notion that to using a waist trainer can restrict breathing because it is so tight. This is not true, and it is important that you choose a waist shaper that fits comfortably. If you have difficulty breathing when wearing the waist shaper, it is probably too small. If you get one that fits comfortably, you can wear it for 8 to 10 hours a day.
