Contrary to popular belief, wearing a waist trainer does not help you to lose weight. While it might flatten your stomach and accentuate your curves, you also have to adjust your lifestyle to see results. In essence, you also have to eat well and incorporate exercise.
However, as most people who wear waist trainers know, exercising (and even eating) while wearing a waist trainer can be challenging. In the beginning, they feel uncomfortable and unnatural, and it can take some getting used to. However, exercising while wearing a waist trainer can help you to achieve your goals. The key is just not to overdo it. Carrying out strenuous exercises while wearing a waist trainer can do more harm than good.

Due to the compression of a waist trainer, it’s crucial to be aware of your breathing. If you find that you’re struggling to breathe or are incredibly uncomfortable, stop what you are doing.
