Waist trainer, body shapers and corsets have been used by women for centuries.
But in recent times, it has become unusually popular and over endorsed by high profile celebrities all over the world.
They have been said to reduce the size of the midsection and make the waist slimmer.
Though research has shown that waist trainers don’t really work, simply sticking to the right diet and doing exercises would naturally help reduce the waist line. Women would rather wear waist trainers because high profile celebrities endorse them as the secret behind their great bodies.
According to those in support of waist trainers, waist training is said to be a permanent means of waist reduction and re-shaping achieved by putting on a waist trainer, regular exercise and a healthy diet. Sellers of the waist trainers go as far as giving an assurance of a slimmer waist line if they are worn up to six hours daily for about a month.
Some women wear waist trainers in the quest for a permanent slim waistline, while others put it on for temporary purposes to enhance their figures on certain outfits and maybe boost their confidence.
However doctor have warned that use of waist trainers is potentially dangerous. They say that women need to understand that the body shapers or waist trainers don’t help with weight loss. In fact, if it is worn too tight, it can cause digestive problem and affect food intake. It can also harm the major internal organs in the stomach.
The best way to loose weight or tummy fat, remains exercise and a healthy diet. If at all anyone wants to use a waist trainer, it should be worn in moderation and not too tight, as they can cause a lot of damage to the internal organs and it also causes a lot of pain and discomfort. It could also cause compressed lungs and fractured ribs.
There’s been no actual scientific proof that waist trainers work. Waist trainers are not totally a healthy way to lose belly fat. They are totally uncomfortable and damage internal organs. For a flat tummy, exercises and a proper nutrition is the best way.
