How to Care for Your Corset

Steel-boned corsets are some of the most durable types of shapewear you can own. But you have to make sure you’re taking good care of them. Most other shapers provide compression through synthetic materials like latex and other blends. Traditional corsets are different because they are constructed with flexible steel strips called boning and are tightened with laces. Synthetic compression materials tend to naturally lose their elasticity over time, but that won’t happen with steel boning. Having said that, it is very important for you to take proper care of your corset so that it won’t warp or break. If you treat your corset with the appropriate care measures, you’ll enjoy its benefits for many benefits. Starting Out: Seasoning One...

Should You Sleep with a Waist Trainer On?

Should You Sleep with a Waist Trainer On? Waist training has gotten back into mainstream practice in recent years thanks to many celebrities endorsing it. But unlike before with corsets, waist trainers are way more comfortable. Waist trainers look very much like corsets, undergarments women used to wear until around the early years of the 20th century. Corsets had a completely different function though. You wear them around your midsection. Their tight grip around your waist slims it down.

However, sweating hard indicates that your body is exerting energy, which indicates that you may be burning fat—if you’re doing...
