A New Jersey cosmetic surgeon is quoted in a Sept. 21 Seattle Times article: “I think there’s something to it (corset waist training),” he said. “It does actually work, because you are losing water weight. It’s like getting a body wrap. The problem is, the results are really short-lived.” But, (Steven) Davis also pointed out that there could be some muscular benefits from waist training on a regular basis.
“You are training your core to get stronger,” Davis explained, likening it to how experts instruct you to hold your stomach in while doing plank exercises. “A lot of people wear things like that, because you are training your transverse abdominis muscles to stay in that position.”
Davis continued, “I think that there probably is some validity to the whole process. But I don’t know how long it would take for that to happen.”
We wrote to Dr. Davis immediately to tell him that for our 25 or so students we have coached in our 3-month program since 1995, a remarkable 20 years of experience — we have seen remarkable results occur. Those include from a 50 lb/5″ waistline loss to a 34 lb/6.5″ waistline loss!
The point is NOT how rapid the results are, nor “does corset waist training work”. Most of us know it works even if some of us waited for “the word” from on high from Ms. Kardashian….
The point is: can you get right with your thinking process, and decide you value YOU and a svelte, healthy figure and lifestyle better than chocolate and Krispy Kremes –so that a few habit changes you will have to make will last the rest of your lifetime?
That kind of meaningful success takes more than one corset, one visit to the gym, one bariatric surgery (which costs about $20,000 by the way), or one tummy lipo (which doesn’t even sculpt out the waistline and costs about $6000-10,000 by the way).
At ROMANTASY we are now concentrating on providing more support to our students and clients, now have a one-month Tune Up program (Heather is now tuning up with her new training Belt) and invite you to join our new private and confidential blog for more meaningful discussions on corset waist training and health in general, plus provide support for others based on your own experience. Just send us email and we’ll make you an author!
The two clients pictured on this page waist trained following the principles detailed in our 300-page training manual: Corset Magic (still the only comprehensive ‘how to’ book on the topic since 2003, updated in 2015, order online). The process works no matter you body size of shape, where you begin, sex, age or gender — if you work it and go about it in a common sense way with an eye toward the future so you can maintain your success.
