Waist training is an effective way to reduce your waistline and accentuate your body curves. It works best when quality waist trainer band and other complementary products such as Getfit’s Thermogenic Belly Wrap and Belly Fat Breaker are used concurrently.
Since waist trainers are high compression band, they can feel rigid and stiff, which can be difficult to wear for long periods without practice. To help beginners achieve their desired curves with a successful waist training regimen, below are five simple, tested and proven ways you can make waist training and belly fat loss more comfortable.
1. ACCURATE SIZE
To every beginner, a vital part of your waist training journey would be to ensure that you buy a waist trainer that is your perfect fit. This way, you can easily avoid issues relating to comfortability and product tears. Some people would choose to get a size smaller because the waist trainer will be more effective when you are almost out of breath. At the end of the day, they abandon their waist training journey halfway. Purchasing an accurate size would help you avoid sharp pains and restriction of breath. Getfit size checker is an incredible online tool you can use to determine your accurate waist trainer band size.
2. START GRADUALLY
One recurring mistake beginners make with waist training is that they jump all in too fast. They buy a new waist trainer and then try to wear it all day, every day for a week straight out of the packaging.
There are a couple of reasons to avoid this. First, a new waist trainer is a little like a new pair of shoes; it takes some time for it to break in and mould to the natural shape of your bodily figure. Second, your body also needs some time to adjust, just as you would if you had never worn heels before. Be patient so that your body and your waist trainer band can become more accustomed to each other.
We recommend wearing a waist trainer for no more than 3-5 hours daily. During this time, you can adjust to the way it feels and also determines that the band is the correct fit.
You can gradually add a little bit of time to your waist training regimen each day. There’s no hard and fast rule about how much time you should add, but half an hour to an hour each day should be sufficient. Keep track of the time and monitor your pulse rate with Getfit’s fitness Tracker.
If your goal is to wear your waist trainer for several hours a day but you’re still not fully accustomed to it yet, try breaking up your waist training time into two sessions per day when needed. For example, you can wear Getfit’s Dual Detachable Belly Eraser for three hours in the morning, take a lunch break, and then wear it for three hours in the afternoon for a total of six hours. Alternatively, you can wear your waist trainer in a looser setting for part of the day if you’re not comfortable with full compression the whole time.
Note that if you want to wear a waist trainer like Getfit’s Ruby at a particular event like a wedding, you should give yourself enough time in the preceding days and weeks to work up to a full day of comfortable wear.
If you commit to wearing a waist trainer every day, you will probably feel comfortable wearing it for 8 to 12 hours a day after a few weeks. After that, it may start to feel like a second skin, and you may even be able to tighten it more!
3. ALTERNATIVE PIECES
Another way to make waist training more comfortable is to use more than one garment in your routine.
This also ensures that your waist trainers stay clean, fresh and effective every day of the week. If you find that the perspiration from waist training makes you uncomfortable after long periods, this strategy is especially important.
Different waist trainers can have different levels of compression and also various cuts and styles. For example, Getfit Slim Waist Band is constructed with firmer material than an everyday waist trainer and are generally cut shorter. You might also find it beneficial to switch between a short cut waist trainer and a full length one if you want a bit more breathing room from time to time. Shorter waist trainers like Getfit Waist Trimmer Band create a more exaggerated curve at the waist and leave more breathing room on your torso.
Ultimately, which style of waist trainer is more comfortable can depend on your body type and personal preferences. Whatever the case, variety can help you feel more comfortable day-to-day.
4. WAIST TRAIN AT NIGHT
Some people find that an effective and convenient way to wear a waist trainer for multiple hours at a time is to do it at night.
This strategy isn’t necessarily the right one for everyone, but many swear by it. If you are comfortable sleeping through the night with it on, then you have the freedom to wear an alternative waist trainer band or shapewear during the day.
You’ll want to keep a few factors in consideration if you decide to try this method. Are you a back, side or tummy sleeper? Do you have a hard or soft mattress? These factors can affect how well you’re able to sleep in a waist trainer. Note that your torso will be straight most of the night, so you may need additional pillows or rolled-up towels to help distribute your body weight more evenly. It can take some trial and error to get this right, so try different strategies for a few nights.
Even wearing a waist trainer from time to time at night can be a way to shake things up and give yourself a break, while still keeping up your daily waist training regimen.
5. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
When it comes down to it, the best way to be comfortable while waist training is to be more mindful about how your body is feeling throughout the day.
You should pay close attention for starters if you ever feel any sharp pain or any restriction in breathing. The reason for this could be that your body is simply rejecting the compression for that day and wants to be free, if this is the case, you can give yourself a break just for that day and allow your body to breathe. Then again, it could be an indicator that your waist trainer either doesn’t fit or has somehow been warped or broken. In any case, remove it immediately.
Also, pay attention to what kind of discomfort you’re feeling when waist training. Are you feeling too restricted or stiff? Try to follow the strategies we outlined above to maximize your comfort. For more comfort and faster results, try incorporating Getfit’s Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Gummies into your diets and wear a Getfit’s Thermogenic Belly Wrap underneath your waist trainer which has incredible thermogenic properties. You’ll also want to make sure that you’re drinking lots of water, keeping your skin hydrated and cleaning your waist trainer properly.
Some people find that they are more likely to experience heartburn or reflux when wearing a waist trainer. This is not surprising, since your midsection and digestive tract are more restricted (much as they would be if you were pregnant). Be mindful to eat small, sensible meals when wearing a waist trainer to prevent this. Eat slowly and stop when you feel full— these practices are healthier for you anyway and can help you achieve a slimmer waistline.
