Waist Trainer

From corset to girdle to waist trainer - These curve-accentuating shaping accessories have gone from restricting, to everyday wear approved. You heard that right! No need to hold your breath, because we’ll show you how to shop and style the shaping Empetua® Smooth Waist Trainer. Read on!

What is a Waist Trainer?

While some of us may immediately think of the Victorian era’s corset, waist trainers are pretty similar because they are often made with flex boning for a sturdy hold. Waist trainers are often worn under clothing to support the back and the posture.

Many women (including celebrities) also wear waist trainers to have more defined curves under body-hugging clothing or even under costumes.

What are the benefits of wearing a Waist Trainer?

Improved posture and confidence. Studies show that good posture affects not only your confidence, but it also improves your breathing and mood.

What is the difference between a Waist Trainer and a Waist Cincher?

Though waist trainers and waist cinchers may look almost the same because of their structure: the boning and the hook and eye front closure, waist cinchers provide firmer compression that can take an inch or two off your waist as you wear them.

Is a Waist Cincher uncomfortable to wear?

If it’s your first time, you may experience discomfort since your body is still adjusting. The best next step is to choose a true size, rather than a smaller, tighter one. Alternatively, you can wear the cincher on the widest hook and eye until you adjust.
