Whether you’re slipping on your favourite pair of jeans or getting ready to hit the town with your friends, you want to look and feel your best all day (or night!) long. Control briefs and boy shorts are perfect for lifting and rounding your bum to create a shapely derriere. Control briefs offer everything from light to firm support, and are perfect for those venturing into shapewear for the first time as they are much less intimidating than their full body counterparts.

Arm Shapers

Shapewear isn’t just designed to slim tums and lift bums; there are even pieces to help out with your arms. If you’re wearing a tight top or a dress with long sleeves, you may want to try a back and arm shaper. These can even help with poor posture, a common complaint amongst office workers and those who spend a lot of time at a desk. Arm shapers that stretch across the back help to pull your shoulders into a more natural position can help uncurl your body if you feel hunched over after a long day at work. What’s not to love?

Waist Training

 So what is waist training?! 

Waist training is a process that involves wearing a latex waist trainer or a tight laced corset to cinch in your waistline. It’s used to give women a more curvy hourglass figure with a smaller waist while the hips remain curvy. This  works perfectly for anyone looking to maintain a curvy silhouette.

However, this process doesn’t happen overnight, consistency plays a large role in achieving your body goals

As you increase the hours you train your waist, you will find it gets easier. Working out and exercise is crucial to speed up waist training results. This also means even when you have cinched in your waist to the desirable size, you still may have to wear the trainer or corset for a few hours every few days to maintain your slimmer waist.

The waist-trainer will not only cinch your waist, it will also strengthen your core all the while improving your posture. The thermogenisis created within your body will allow your body to rid itself of harsh toxins and impurities, through perspiration. While wearing the waist trainer, the tight compression will help to appropriately correct portion intake,therefore you'll achieve the healthier practice of smaller meals, more often, rather than three large meals a day.

Waist training as a means of permanent waist-reduction and re-shaping is a practice requiring discipline and is best achieved when the following 3 measures are taken:

  1. Waist Cinching using a traditional flex-boned corset
  2. Healthy Diet
  3. Regular Exercise

How Long Should I wear My Waist Trainer?

Every woman is different, and no one trainer can be used by two women at the same time. At the store, we have experts that will measure and fit you, to find the best waist trainer. For beginners, we recommend that you start off slow. This means that you wear your trainer for about 3-4 hours for the first week or so, then as time goes by and you get used to the waist trainer, you can add hours and even reach up to 12+ hours of wear.

Regular Exercise

Regular Exercise

Another important tip that we give is for you to wear a thin cotton vest underneath your waist trainer. This is especially important if you're working out. Although the premium waist trainer has a soft cotton lining, the vest will reduce chaffing and absorb more sweat, making it more comfortable to move around in. 

Have you started your waist training journey? If not, call us at +254714212809 for any more inquiries or visit us at our physical store at the Greenhouse Mall. 

If you have started on this life changing experience, please let us know on the comment section below how your waist training journey is going. We'd love to see your progress, so please tag us on instagram, facebook and twitter @plushiquekenya and @plushiquestore.
