I found this interesting piece on one of my favorite blogsite and thought to share. This has become very important because more and more women are now opting for waist training as a quick way to lose weight and achieve an hour-glass figure.
So if you are thinking about getting a waist-training corset to shape up for whatever reason, then you might want to read this;
BIKINI SEASON WILL SOON BE HERE AND..
Waist trainers are a great way to snatch your stomach just in time for summer…right?
BUT YOUR BIKINI PLANS COULD BACKFIRE
Wearing waist-trainers, corsets and shapers for long periods of time can lead to skin chafing and rashes. And if your skin is prone to unsightly scarring after skin damage, you could put a permanent end to bikini season before it even starts.
THAT PAIN COULD BE THE SIGN OF A SERIOUS PROBLEM
Fractured ribs are a common side effect of waist-training, especially if you train your waist around the clock. Even a dull pain in your ribs could be a sign that they’re bruised or even broken.
IT MAY GIVE YOU AN HOUR-GLASS FIGURE. BUT IT ALSO HAS A DOWNSIDE. IT MOVES YOUR ORGANS AROUND
A snatched waist comes at a price. Corsets give you an hourglass figure by moving your internal organs around. Squishing them out of place with shape wear can damage and deform your organs. Wear waist trainers for too long and your liver, spleen and kidneys can suffer permanent damage.
THEY MAY APPEARS TO SUCK YOU IN OVERNIGHT BUT THE FAT’S NOT GONE, IT JUST MOVED
Director of Bariatric Surgery at the University of Florida Health Jacksonville, Sunil Sharma, MD explains that waist trainers don’t actually change your figure, they just re-shape it:
“All you’re doing is compressing your stomach and pushing the fat around instead of getting rid of it. It’s a very temporary thing. Would you be able to obtain fat loss after taking it off? I doubt it.”
THEY MAY CAUSE YOU TO EAT LESS
One of the benefits of a waist trainer is that it makes you want to eat less, which can lead to a lot of weight loss in the beginning.
BUT YOU ALSO MOVE LESS
Turns out, waist trainers make you feel like eating less because they’re restricting your stomach and intestines from moving. That means that food that goes in has trouble getting out. This backlog can lead to acid reflux and constipation — both of which can cause long-term problem if they go on for too long.
