Whether you are already experienced and just looking into mixing up your routine or a waist training beginner still learning the ropes, there is a question that must have crossed your mind at least once: Is it okay to wear a waist trainer everyday? The answer is YES, definitely. In fact, it is encouraged to use your waist trainer on a daily basis, so long as you are mindful of how you are using it and for how long.
How to wear a waist trainer daily?
Figuring out ways to incorporate your waist training into your daily schedule might sound tough at first, but with the right kind of waist belt, you will soon find that it is easy and absolutely hassle-free! Here is a list of places you can wear it to, and activities you can do with one on:
At the office or school. Accomplishing tasks while sitting most of the time can lead to gaining a little bulge around your midsection. This is a great situation to include in your waist training schedule as it can teach your waist to keep in place, and at the same time help you keep your posture healthy.
Out on errands. Errand day can get quite hectic as you move from one place to another, checking off your to-do list as you go along. Take this as an opportunity to maximize the steps you are getting in and the physical activity you are accomplishing. With a trainer on, you can shed out more calories at the grocery store than regularly.
While at home. Whether you are lounging on the couch or vacuuming the whole place, you can still have a waist trainer on while just at home. If you are at a relaxed state, it benefits you similarly to when you are by your desk at work. If you are doing chores, it has the same advantages for when you are busy with errands or at the gym.
At the gym. Speaking of the gym, you should definitely use a waist trainer while working out! The compression around your waist helps you shed excess water weight and take your physical activities to a whole new level. You can lose weight faster and train your waist more effectively this way.
At parties or special events. You can also wear them to a night out or important events. They will help you look more toned and slim in your attire, not to mention be able to slip into it easier.
For how long should you wear one on each day?
A waist trainer safely constricts your abdomen to pull it together and keep it a certain size. Because of the pressure this process puts on your body, it is important to let yourself rest and not wear a waist trainer all day.
When just starting out, we recommend doing a couple of hours a day until you feel comfortable to take on more. You can add in increments of 30 minutes to an hour each time. An important thing to note is to never exceed our suggested limit of 12 hours per day, this allows your body to breathe in its current state for half the time and not take on too much stress as you safely modify your waist.
