The Kardashian’s seemingly can’t get enough of waist trainers – but do they work?
If you haven’t heard about using a waist trainer – the latest ‘slimming’ craze favoured by the A-list (disclaimer: this is a phrase that immediately rings alarm bells in our head) – then you’re clearly not fans of the Kardashian clan. The showbiz family including Khloe, Kourtney, Kim and Kylie, love posing up a storm on Instagram in their elasticated waist cinchers, a practice officially known as ‘waist training’.
But the Kardashian’s aren’t the only fans. Whilst there are plenty of ways to healthily lose weight fast, in a magazine interview, Jessica Alba revealed that he wore a double corset ‘day and night for three months’ following the birth of her daughters, candidly revealing that ‘it was brutal; it’s not for everyone but it was worth it’, in order to get her shape back.

From the history of corsets and tightlacing dating back to the 16th century, women have used corsets to achieve the ideal small waists. While wearing it frequently as a lifestyle certainly will achieve the desired results over time, it may not be something everyone with a normal working routine can do unless you are a celebrity or a Kardashian who really have that much time to focus on waist training and not have to go about chasing our kids around or doing housework.
The good news is, you only need to commit between 2hrs to 4hrs a day to achieve visible results. Moreover, you will get used to it quite quickly and doing regular activities wearing the waist trainer does become significantly easier. Bear in mind, start off with a comfortable size then "downsize" as you start to get smaller.
