How Long Does It Take for Waist Training to Work?

As adults, we tend to scoff at kids who wail from the backseat of the car, “How much longer ’til we get there?” We tell them to be patient and we laugh at the folly of youth. Of course, we can be a pretty impatient lot ourselves – just think about the last time your WiFi was on the fritz. Be honest, how long did it take before you were hitting the refresh button every two seconds and muttering curses under your breath? When you’re focused and you want to reach a goal, it can sometimes seem like nothing is happening, like you’re working really hard and seeing zero results. You’ve probably heard the saying “anything worthwhile is worth waiting for”. This is more than just something your dad used to say. It’s true – you can gobble up a scoop of ice cream now or take the time to heat the fudge, chop the nuts, and add a cherry on top, and savor it all the more. When you ask “How long does it take for corset training to work?”, you should know it’s a little different for everyone. Here are a few factors when it comes to the longevity of waist training.

Your Body

Every body is different, and every body will react differently to waist training. This has to do with your age, your skeletal structure, your muscle tone, your body fat, and many other factors that make your body unique. For example, if you are extremely toned in the midsection, you may find that waist training moves at a slower pace because it’s more difficult to cinch dense muscle than fat. Another reason to curse crunches…but I digress. It could be that you already have a figure that accommodates the curves of a steel boned corset and you see quicker results that someone else. The point is that you shouldn’t go in with preconceived notions of what you can accomplish and how fast based on the experiences of others. To some extent, your body will dictate your results.

Your Lifestyle

Are you currently losing weight through diet and exercise? If so, you’re bound to see faster results with your weight training than someone who has already reached ideal weight, or simply isn’t on a weight-loss path at the moment.

Your Goals and Tolerance

The goals you set for yourself when it comes to waist training can help to determine how long it takes to slim down, as can your general tolerance for corsetry. Finding the right corset to begin with will help a lot. If a corset is comfortable, you can easily work your way up to wearing it all day long, which will help you to accomplish your goals more quickly. Of course, you might not be in a terrible rush, or you simply may not want to wear your corset for more than a few hours a day. You need to choose the path that’s right for you. Just don’t get impatient – try to handle it better than the toddler in the back seat. Create realistic goals and plan a waist training schedule that will deliver positive, long-term results.
