Just want to say waist training and Corseting are two different things. You can absolutely be 100% healthy and not lose muscle tone while training or Corseting. With that said, if you are waist training it is latex like a compression garmet. Talk to your Dr. Sometimes they are recommend after some surgery's. But only your Dr can tell you whats right. Corseting, since it is more rigid, I would definitely wait before putting one back on and wait till I am completely healed. Also, Real Corsets are expensive, wait till you are at your goal to start purchasing them they are a real investment and spending that kind of money for something you can only fit for a month is a waist.

This seems like a fad. Like going and getting a wrap to make you lose five pounds. I know what they are and what they do- but we just all paid 14000( or I did ) to make a real change and get a tool that is majorly effective. One of my fav things about this surgery to me is that I am not Falling for and spending money on things that more than likely won't be a lasting answer

I agree for some waist training is a fad. Corseting and Faja's have been around and in use for years. Only recent stars have made it a popular fad here in the US. But even if you lose weight, unless it is in your genes, you will not have an hourglass figure. Nothing wrong with someone wanting to grab that sexy look. [emoji4]

What brand of corsets and spandex are you guys using. Where can I purchase? Iv e watched many YouTube videos on waist training and o so t want the extreme but a little help might be something to think about

I've had several friends/coworkers use waist trainers and seen great results. They recommend SwanCoast. You can find them here:

Good luck with it! I tried it years ago and it was painful. Very painful. I was already thin with a nice figure so I don't know what the hell I was thinking???

Two weeks post op I was wandering if anyone did waist training after given ok to exercise from doctor,would the waist trainer help shrink stomach faster since its in the healing process or should I wait longer for stomach to completly heal at 6-8 weeks out

My surgeon was ok with my waist trainer at week 3, So I started with a soft one w/o steel in it then @ week 8 I started with the corset waist trainer! It makes a HUGE difference. I order all my trainers from Amazon message me if u want info. I've purchased @ 4 since surgery do to my rapid lost[emoji8] #EveryWomanLikesHourglassFigure[emoji11]

I posted on this thread quite a while ago. Honestly, my waistline changed with weight loss not the corsets. looking back it was a waste of money. Your body will look fantastic just with weight loss.

Every single hiit and cardio routine includes abs now. I feel a bit cheated...to me ab work is ab work and I don’t understand why every single cardio routine is including them. They thicken the waist if done every day, and planks and all plank movements are the worst for thickening it up. I like to do my abs 3 maybe 4x a week max and find myself changing exercises for every single routine I’m doing now. When will this trend go away? It’s like trainers can’t think of any more cardio moves so they throw in abs again to fill many minutes of a workout. I just paid top dollar for a new cardio routine dvd and about 60 percent of it is standing or lying abs. I’m improvising again! I just don’t find the boxy thickened waist of excessive planking and overstrained waists attractive. If your going to train the abs like that there should be some back strengthening moves to balance out at the very least.

Don't buy fitness DVDs, find someone you like on YouTube and then follow them. I feel your pain, I got a membership at a nice gym over the summer and the classes were all like this. We have to engage our core for everything we don't need to throw abs into every workout. I also hate that fitness is so 'trendy' like with f**king squats in everything. At one point I think they even made you do squats in yoga. 🙄

This lady does great workouts, but idk if she has any cardio. You can look around though, she has a ton of videos. This workout below is fantastic and her quarantine butt routine doesn't have squats/legs just glutes... If you're like me you don't need bigger thighs.

Good luck hunting!

My clinic actually gave me a complimentary girdle to wear 15+days post-op for as long as I'd like. Not the same thing as a corset or targeted waist training, but I suppose the idea is the same.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
