Things to consider when buying a waist trainer for plus size
All said and done, it can be a tad confusing if this is the first time you are buying a waist trainer. So, here are a few things to consider before making a choice.
- Boning: You need to decide whether you will be wearing the waist trainer all day or only during your workouts. If you intend to wear it during the workouts, it is recommended that you choose one without steel or plastic boning. The boning may dig into your skin during workouts making it uncomfortable. Quality wise, steel is always better than plastic boning.
- Double boned: Double boned corsets give you the best results in reshaping your waist.
- Overbust vs. Underbust: Most waist trainers for plus size are usually underbust corsets that stops just below your breast. Overbust corsets on the other hand covers your breast completely. However, an overbust corset may be more visible under your dress.
- Measurement: This is where most women get it wrong. You need to take a measuring tape and measure your waist before you order a corset off the rack. Do not make guesses or it may end up being too tight or too loose.
- Wearing in: Be prepared for the wearing in period where the body gets used to the corset. This period may be slightly uncomfortable. But if it feels painful, you should remove it and let the body rest for a while.
That’s about it. Consider these points while making a purchase and you should be able to make an informed choice.
