Waist trainers for women are enjoying a recent resurgence in popularity (thanks in large part to some well-known reality TV stars), and it's no wonder we're seeing them everywhere these days. For those who haven’t heard of waist training before, or just don’t know exactly what wearing one entails, it’s a process that involves wearing a latex garment or a tightly laced corset to cinch your waistline. It’s used to give women a more exaggerated hourglass figure, creating a very small waist while maintaining the curves of the hips. 

Waist trainers aren't a new invention. Today’s waist trainers are similar to corsets that people wore more than a hundred years ago. The idea behind a waist trainer is to gradually build up to wearing it for longer periods of time each day. As you wear it longer, it molds your waist and hips to form a more well-defined hourglass figure. 

Anyone can have an hourglass waist, no matter what your natural body shape and size. In fact, if you wear plus sizes, you can get dramatic, curvy results with the right waist training cincher or corset. When shopping for a plus size waist trainer, there are several options available and things to consider: 
 - Getting your size right is the most important factor when selecting the best plus size waist trainer for you. 
 - Choose the materials do you prefer: Latex cinchers are more suitable for workouts, white Steel-boned corsets will give you the most dramatic hourglass curves and tend to be more durable. 

A waist trainer can produce a temporary reduction in waist size or circumference (on the web there are a lot of waist trainer before and after), and a person will typically see immediate results. Also, waist trainers do not reduce a person’s body fat. People looking to lose body fat around their midsection or lose substantial weight overall should not rely on wearing a waist trainer to do this. However, a person may feel a loss of appetite while wearing a waist trainer. The garment puts pressure on the stomach, which can create an artificial feeling of fullness.
