Although women have been wearing cinchers, corsets,and now shappers for centuries, it’s nothing but a disperser. Meaning, if you’re chunky your chunks will be displaced to the north and to the south of the waist trainer creating problems in other ares as well as compressing and rearranging your innards, making it difficult for them to properly function.
The fact that manufacturers are saying you can work out in these things is a gamble. Common sense tells us our lungs need to expand in order to replenish our oxygen intake. I had trouble breathing properly just wearing it around the house. I was reduced to taking sips of air! I can’t begin to imagine how I would breathe with an elevated heart rate. Working out alone makes it hard enough to catch your breathe. It’s madness!
Aside from working out in the trainers, people are showing up in the ER with rib damage and passing out from lack of oxygen!
Here's a short video from The Doctors on Waist Training.
Personally, I wouldn’t put my body through the torture for something that looks unnatural on most people in the first place, and secondly for something that puts me within inches of my life (Let me be dramatic...LOL). I have little doubt that it’s possible to get the desired results but you have to be able to keep it on long enough to work and it has to be continuous. If you have had positive results with this new craze please leave a comment, I really want to know what you think and how you endured the squeeze to get the body you fancied.
