Anyone and everyone who uses a core trainer properly and responsibly can achieve an hourglass shape. Women of all ages can participate as long as they follow the above rules and have the correct size waist trainer. Perfect for those with both short and long-term fitness goals. At Hourglass we believe that every woman can find their natural shape, feeling sexy and confident in their own skin!
Finding the right size?
It's of the utmost importance that you have the correct size and that it fits comfortably every time you wear it. If you looking for sizes we recommend taking a tape measure and finding your hips & waist dimensions. Once you have these measurements you can find the correct size with the chart below.
Our size chart below gives you all the right measurements to ensure you get the correct size. Choosing the wrong waist trainer Australia can lead to several issues such as rashes, irritation to the skin and bruising. When first breaking in your waist trainer we recommend wearing it over top of a light t-shirt or tank top. This will stop the core trainer from rubbing on the skin. Alternatively, you can opt for a latex waist trainer that is much softer and comfortable to wear.

Men can most definitely wear and partake in waist training. Waist trainers offer a great way to burn and tone the stomach area, whilst also helping to improve posture, this is why many men wear a waist trainer at the office or in the gym. Some men even wear their waist trainer Australia while participating in an active job such as farm work or labouring.
We have several waist trainers that can be worn by men as well as the gym men's trainer which is the ultimate gym tool to help burn fat and sculpt abs. Rember when choosing a tummy belt you want to get one that is made of breathable materials that don't leave you feeling restricted in your movement. This is important if your training in the gym or on-site working.
CAN KIDS WAIST TRAIN
We recommend that no children or pre-teens should use a tummy belt and only young adults over the age of 18 should engage in waist training. The reasons being that kids and teens bodies are still developing. This is especially true for young women who are experiencing major changes to their body. Training during this time can place physically & mental stress on young women and is something that should be avoided completely.
WAIST TRAINING WHEN PREGNANT
When pregnant we recommend most shapewear, but a waist trainer is a no! Tight shapewear and waist trainers can squeeze and compress internal organs, muscles and ribs. If you wear a midsection belt when pregnant you can do damage to your ribs, restrict your breathing pattern, limit mobility range and hinder your posture. No studies have been conducted that prove injury can occur to the infants when core training, but based on the harm that can occur to you it's best to assume it's not a good experience for your baby. Overall we recommend not training when pregnant.
Can you use a core trainer after pregnacy? Once your child is born, your body will need 4 weeks to lose the body fat and water retention that's held when pregnant. During these 4 weeks, your uterus returns to normal size, and any swelling that has occurred will go down. 6 - 8 weeks after giving birth you can return to training, just ensure to ease into it and listen to your body for any signs.
After 6 weeks if you feel strong and ready you can begin again. During this period you can use a light core trainer that places gentle compression to the tummy region. Remember this needs to be light, with minimal pressure, placing importance on how your body feels with the weight on it. The first 6 weeks after pregnancy is all about healing your body and making sure you make a full recovery.
After the initial 6 to 8 weeks you can use a latex belt to start getting your post-baby body back. We recommend going a size up as we don't want to place too much pressure on your body too soon. The latex belt is super soft and amazing for women who are just getting started back into working out.
