Are Waist Trainers Worth Your Time?


April 26, 2017

Kim Kardashian made the waist trainer famous, just like she has done with plenty of other products that she endorses. But can a waist trainer really make you look like Kim K? Unfortunately, the answer is no. A waist trainer might be something you want to try, but we’re here to tell you that you don’t need it. Save your money»

The Psychological Impact
We are not waist trainer experts, but we have seen numerous clients come in and tell us they started using them and LOVED the results. But we certainly had questions to ask. Did the waist trainer really lose that weight for you– or did you do it by yourself! When women try waist trainers, they often ramp up their exercise routines to get the best results. What they don’t realize is that it’s actually the increased activity that is losing the weight, not the waist trainer!

The Physical Impact
As a human being, your organs should ALWAYS be your top priority. But if we told you that a waist trainer would have a negative impact on your respiratory and digestive systems, would you stop using one? Doctors say that using a waist trainer while you work out is not going to make you skinnier, but it actually compresses your diaphragm to the point where your lungs can’t work properly. If it is fastened tightly enough, it can also harm your intestines and stomach.

The Science Behind It
There is absolutely NO science behind the claims that a waist trainer will actually help you lose fat off your waist. Scientists call this phenomena ‘Spot Reduction’, or targeting specific areas of the body to lose weight. The only way to pick and choose where you lose fat is during cosmetic surgery!

If you would like to inquire about our SmartLipo or Tummy Tuck services, we would be more than happy to discuss them with you. We are still offering a number of different specials to help manage the price and we want you to get that body you deserve without resorting to the desperation that is a waist trainer. Spend your money on something that really works!
