Hourglass waist trainers are such a big part of the health and wellness industry today. Because of the rise in demand, there are now multiple variations to choose from that cater to the many differing preferences and needs. Most often wonder if it is just as effective to switch between these variations in the course of their waist training routine, and the answer is a big YES. Not only can you switch between waist trainers, but also, we highly recommend you do so!
The benefits of alternating between waist trainers
Whether you opt to switch between different kinds of trainers, or just alternate between two pieces of the same kind, you stand to enjoy many benefits, including:
One of the reasons waist training rose to popularity is its heat retention capability. This allows you to sweat more around your abdominal area, and make the most out of your workouts. Because of this feature, it is crucial to properly wash and dry your cincher after every use and prevent bacteria from building up.
While your first piece is being sanitized, having an alternative cincher will ensure you do not miss out on your routine!
Extends lifespan of garment
By deciding to alternate between compression bands, you can effectively extend the lifespan of each garment by reducing risk of wear and tear. Investing in more than one piece will definitely be worthwhile as you can use them for a longer time.
Always prepared no matter the occasion
As briefly mentioned, each variation caters to a specific preference or need. This includes the needs of those that are waist training just at the gym, those that train everyday, and those that mainly utilize it for special occasions. All of which are still effective, but having differently designed pieces on hand can help you meet your goals better.
Top 3 waist trainers to keep in your closet
#1: Everyday trainer
This by far is the most versatile option as it doubles as an everyday garment and as a gym band. It is highly durable, elastic, and is a breeze to adjust to especially if you are a beginner at waist training. You can wear it at the office, school, on errands, at home, and while working out!
The main difference between the gym compression band and everyday trainer are their materials. While the everyday trainer is made of latex, this gym band is made of neoprene, which heightens its ability to retain heat and helps you perspire even more. This is definitely the model to help flush out excess water weight and meet your waist training goals sooner than later!
#3: Classic corset
The classic corset features multiple flexi steel bones embedded within a breathable fabric to hold down the hourglass figure. This may make it a little rigid compared to the others but will not hinder your mobility. To prevent injury or damaging the garment, this is not recommended for physical activities.
