Lets Talk Waist Training…

So you are wondering if you are the only one without a waist trainer yet? Or you have been wearing yours for a few months now and you have actually noticed the difference? I personally always catch up on trends late, but waist training is something i found out a few years ago. The whole idea is to make your waist smaller. However it seems like many people haven’t done their homework. Firstly it is cumbersome in terms of comfort and makes one really hot – often because of the material used to make it.

I was watching doctor Oz the other day online and i found he did a segment on waist training. He did an x-ray without and with waist training and the results were interesting. I am not for or against what people do with their bodies, however i believe we should have access to information to help us make proper decisions.  Here is the video , pretty much waist trainers mess with the positioning of your organs. Like in the image below:

I am not a joy killer, simply sharing what i found. I do wear my spanx with pride as it is more comfortable for me, and makes my midsection smooth. I have slowed down on working out, i have actually stopped, so i gained probably 3 inches around my waist- so i am not speaking from a six pack angle.

Do you waist train? If yes, are you aware of the effects on your organs in terms of positioning? If yes, does it bother you? I mean my father always says “something has to kill you” right. If you waist train, please share your experiences.

    • Bee, I considered wearing a corset for the wedding and i dumped the idea as fast as it occurred to me. Waist training is becoming very big in Nigeria, and people are advertising it like crazy, but as with all things, many people don’t understand what it is they are up against. It’s one thing to make an informed decision, its simply another to follow the train because you have a big “tummy”.

      The Lion says you are around? You should come visit. lol.

      • You would have been the dullest babe at the wedding. Cos you know all that rocking won’t have been possible with any waist trainer.

        But you already know I shall be coming your way today or tomorrow. The theme for this trip is food oh. I’m coming to eat up your fridge (sticks tongue out)

        But you

  2. I thank God for the type of body I have. I have no need for it. However, I thought about the organs alignment within been tampered with. You just proved me right.

    🙂 @ your father’s saying. My late sis used to say same.

  3. Much ado about waist training, I stood in front of a mirror and tried to picture how much difference waist training will make to my shape and decided it wasn’t worth it.

  5. Thanks to the Kardashian clan, waist training is now a huge trend.. I really can’t be bothered about waist training, the thought of wearing a corset all day everyday is scary to me. Now I have a legitimate reason to never try it 🙂

  6. I’m not even comfortable wearing spanx let alone waist whatever. Can’t deal, and the sad part is it is actually expensive to buy. I had to convince someone not to buy waist trainers but to work out instead so as to get a flatter tummy. It is really now big here.

  8. The fact that most ladies can’t breathe with it is what makes me laugh the most,or the fact that your boobs will be touching your chin if you sit down,mehn ladies are really trying. I wear spanx too and I know what I do with it immediately I feel uncomfortable so wearing waist trainer will just snuff air out of my lungs. Kudos to the ladies who wear it all day.

  12. Would rather work out than use a waist trainer. Sometimes i wonder how they breathe in that thing.

  13. Interesting research. I waist train but I try to stay conscious of the effect it’s bringing to my body. Once, when it was mid-cycle, I began to bleed and it was strange that it would happen like that. The next day, I didn’t wear my waist trainer and the bleeding didn’t continue. I let me system breathe and rest for a while before I continued so, yes, I cant say I’m totally oblivious of the side effects. But till I find a more permanent solution to my bulging tommy, ammo stick to it, consciously.

  14. Its not my body, but then, one can’t but stop to think what some people would do to themselves to get the general approval. But like I said, its not my body.

  16. I stumbled upon your blog from single in gidi blog and I’m really impressed. It’s a great find and il be bookmarking this page. Thanks for being real. I don’t have a perfect body but I’m thankful for what I have I think the focus on perfect bodies in this age is unbecoming and it is an unobtainable myth, even Kim ks body is not perfect so no matter how we train, nip, tuck, such and clip the only solution to our problem is to love the skin we are in… Keep the good work up pynk!
