So what do you need to know before corset training and what can you expect after?

Now I know I say this a lot but you really can’t rush or force your body into corset training. There really is no point to jumping straight into a corset, forcing your waist down by a 5inch reduction and saying “There! I’m a tightlacer!” Because you’ve then got to keep that corset on 8 – 12 hrs a day for the next 6 months to make the reduction permanent, or as permanent as a corseted waist gets. (Everyone’s waist expands a certain amount when they take off their corset, even after years of corset training.) You’d be lucky to last a day with such a violent reduction before giving up on account of the discomfort and or pain. I’m being over dramatic but my point is this – if you’re planning to corset train, you need to be in it for the long run, not the short sprint! Waist training is a way of life, it affects your eating habits, sleeping habits, your movement etc etc. It IS rewarding but only for those who enjoy the process as much as they enjoy the end result. You shouldn’t tighten your corset to the point where it feels uncomfortable, your corset should support and “hug” your body rather than crush you. If it hurts, you’re doing it wrong.
