CORSETS VS WAIST TRAINERS : THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM

Waist Training is often thought to be synonymous with Corset Training and tight lacing but it's a common misconception. It gets all the more complicated once you add names like girdles, body shapers, fajas, etc. While both do the same thing, i.e. when worn regularly, they Cinch inches off your waist by using compression and activate thermal fat reduction resulting in an hourglass figure but it needs to be kept in mind that they're not the same. In this article, we'll like to enlighten you about the differences between Corsets and Waist Trainers.

MATERIALS USED

Corsets indeed use more premium materials like Satin, Leather, sometimes Cotton, while waist trainers solely focus on getting the job done with materials like Nylon, Latex and Spandex, which make them quite affordable to begin with. Waist Trainers contain spiral steel boning which provides a healthy alternative to spring steel boning found in Corsets because it flexes with your body and does not restrain you.

 

CONSTRUCTION

Corset Front and Back

Corsets have Steel Busks in front with Spring Steel Boning and Laces at the back to tighten.

While Waist Trainers have Eye & Hook or Zip closures with Spiral Steel Boning.



EFFECTIVENESS

There is no doubt that Corsets are strictly aimed for hardcore enthusiasts as they can cinch 3-6 inches off your waist which can be very uncomfortable if you’re just starting out. On the other hand, Waist Trainers cinch a modest 2-4 inches and can be pretty comfortable for anyone to workout in or even sleep in so you can train your waist comfortably for long periods of time for maximum results.

 

CORSETS

Disadvantages

Tightlacing ensures a stronger cinch and it’s more effective in giving you that hourglass figure.

They’re inflexible and can get very uncomfortable.

They support the spine better and are also advised by doctors to people who need back support.

Expensive: A good high quality corset can cost you 100’s if not 1000’s of dollars

One corset can last a long time. As you progress, you can just lace it down for a tighter fit.

Lacing can be very time consuming process and you might need company just to put it on.

BOTTOM LINE

Corsets do indeed train your waist but when you specifically mention a Waist Trainer nowadays it's likely referring to the latex/rubber ones. You can say that a Modern-Day Corset is a Waist Trainer. While both Corsets and Waist Trainers reduce the waist but the process followed by both is very different. We personally prefer Waist Trainers because of the comfort and versatility of them while being affordable too!
