There are so many different styles of cinchers that it is hard to keep up! All of them are made specifically with different intentions which are important to know! To be honest, how are you supposed to know exactly what you want when you don’t know what all the options do?
What is a waist cincher?
A waist cincher is a compression garment that focuses just on the waist alone and not the lower belly. You can pair it with an underbust corset if you like to get the lower belly support. You can view a picture of a beautiful waist cincher below! You can see that it does not span the full length of the torso. Instead, it covers just the waist to pull you in and create a sexy shape.
Different types of waist cincher
Depending on the amount of support and re-shaping you prefer you can purchase waist cinchers with no boning, plastic boning, or steel boning. I will go over the differences below!
Non-boned cinchers are good for a nice relaxing light cinch. They are very flexible and will give you more mobility to move around. Instead of re-shaping your body they will apply a nice smoothing look to your waist. I would suggest using these cinchers for casual outings with friends and family. These cinchers should not be worn to any formal events as they will not hold shape to your waist. However, perfect for relaxing nights in or out that you would like some support for.
Plastic-boned cinchers will supply you with additional re-shaping to your body for a moderate cinch! The plastic boning will keep you exactly where you need to be to fit into a perfect bodycon dress! They can reduce the waist by 1 to 2 inches. They are great for keeping you shaped for a couple of hours! However, since it is plastic boning, it will not hold a perfect shape forever! As you wear these plastic boned cinchers, your body starts to naturally heat the plastic making it more malleable. This causes the cincher to lose some shape. So, perfect for light use, but no formal events!
Steel-boned cinchers are the real deal! If you are going to waist train, need a more radical female shape (3″ to 6″ waist reduction) or attending any formal event where you would like to be cinched and STAY cinched this is what you need. Steel boning is necessary for an extreme cinch! Unlike the other options, this is the only way to keep a perfect hourglass shape without losing any support through the day or night! The steel will not bend when heated.
What are the advantages of wearing a shorter cincher over a longer corset?
The main advantage of a shorter cincher is that it focuses on one area – the waist! With a shorter cincher it is easier to put on and take off as well as adjusting throughout the day! It is also easier to move around in due to the short shorter length! They are also easier to hide under dresses and tops than longer, bulkier corsets.
Are waist cincher results permanent?
No, essentially all waist training will not result in permanent results. You can see results after continuously wearing your cinchers like ‘muscle memory’. However, if you stop wearing it for long periods of time, your body will go back to its old shape. So, keep your cinchers in good condition by cleaning and taking good care of them for the next time you need a little waist reduction to get into that favorite outfit. This will help keep your waist nice and tiny in the long run!
Are waist cinchers good for waist training?
Steel boned corsets are effective when taking the dive into waist training since they are more sturdy and designed to pull in the waistline over time, making the process more natural. Steel boned waist cinchers are simply a shorter version of a corset and can absolutely be used in the process of waist training. So, your waist cinchers can easily be used for sleeping, working out and anything else you would like to do while still waist training.
