History of Waist Training

By Diana Sanchez, Staff Writer

What is perhaps the most telling part of waist training culture isn’t how popular it is today, but really how popular it has been for hundreds of years. Waist training has been a traditional part of women’s post-partum and regular beauty routines since the 1400s, helping women effectively sculpt their ideal figure for generations

Although waist trainers have been around for a long time, they were quite different in the beginning. Originally, called corsets, they were made using wire, reeds, iron, wood, linen, and glue. This shapewear clothing evolved over time to fit the beauty standards of their day. For instance, in the 1920s, corsets were used to slim down the hips and the bustline to fit the glamorous flapper look that was highly coveted at the time. It wasn’t until the 1930s when a type of elastic yarn called “lastex” was introduced that corsets started to become much more flexible and comfortable. This trend continued into the 1940s when the development of man-made fabrics such as rayon, acetate, and nylon continued to help make corsets that were much easier to wear, while still remaining just as effective as shapewear. Today, waist trainers are highly comfortable, flexible, and just as functional as ever.

Columbian Waist Training

As effective and easy to incorporate as waist trainers are, in most recent memory, some cultures have moved away from waist training. Other cultures, however, never stopped.

Think Sofia Vergara, Shakira, Victoria’s Secret model Daniela Lopez Osorio, just to name a few Columbian heart stoppers. In Latino countries, especially Columbia, that curvy body, with a tiny waist has always been highly desirable, and women are introduced very early to waist trainers. 

In the U.S.A., searching for those highly desirable curves is a newer development, brought on by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Jessica Alba, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.

What is waist training?

Waist training is the process of using an adjustable article of clothing to permanently shift the way your body stores your fat, ultimately leading to a smaller waist. Some women even opt to wear their waist trainers at night, allowing them to lose inches while they sleep.

There are many different types of waist trainers, some meant to be used during workouts, which are called sports trainers, and some waist trainers designed for everyday wear. These waist trainers are typically made using nylon, latex, or spandex. Waist trainers come in long and short torso sizes, and it is important that you identify the correct size for you for the best results.

How do waist trainers work?

Waist trainers are body shapers that target your abdomen through compression and increase your fat burn through induced perspiration, with the sole purpose of helping you to slim down in the most aesthetically pleasing places. Waist trainers also encourage weight loss by giving you an instant boost of confidence every time you look in the mirror, and by helping you to feel fuller, faster when you eat. A waist trainer will instantly make you look a size (or two!) smaller, and when worn consistently for several hours at a time will permanently re-shape your waistline and help you create the body of your dreams.
