Both tight lacing and waist training are terms that are regularly used interchangeably by many people. The confusion is not only normal, there is also not that much information available out there for people to educate themselves about the topics. Not only is this incorrect but it is also potentially damaging. With the current ‘corset training’ trend in full-force, it’s rather important to note the difference between these terms, timeframes, and why people choose to do each. In this article, we will generalize tight lacing as the use of any corset type, and waist training as using modern day rubber/latex trainers.

What is Tight Lacing?

Tight lacing is a method wherein you lace and wear a corset. It entails lacing into your corset to a degree which feels particularly tight or even ‘challenging’ to the wearer. Tight lacing is done to promote an hourglass figure or attain an extreme waist reduction or achieve a particular silhouette (compared to the natural, un-corseted waist) for a short time period. This may be done for a photoshoot, for fetishistic/sexual reasons, or just for the feeling alone. How tightly you lace into a corset is a matter of comfort and personal preference and it does vary from person to person. There isn’t any magic number of inches you’ve to lace down, or corset size you’ve to wear in order to consider yourself a tight lacer.

Tight Lacing Objectives

Steel-boned corsets are worn for multiple reasons and situations. Some persons wear them as a fashion statement, whereas others wear under clothing for back & posture support. Many women are however looking for that classic hourglass figure in order to really turn heads at special events. Tight lacing typically involves cinching up into a corset for a limited period of time. It isn’t meant to be permanent in any-way, which as you will see, is the opposite to waist training. It’s something that can be performed weeks, months or years apart and it’ll always be possible for you to lace tightly to a degree. You should never wear a corset so tight as to cause shortness of breath or pain. Unless you’re accustomed to tight-lacing, it’ll be hard to perform for over an hour or so. It’s amazing the curve level you can obtain without extreme cinching! People who are looking to tight lace aren’t usually looking for any permanent waist-line reduction, and therefore they aren’t looking to wear a corset for long periods of time.

What about Waist Training?

On the other hand, waist training is the process of slimming your waist gradually using a certain corset. A corset is worn regularly over a long period of time oftentimes with a specific end goal in mind, usually of achieving a semi permanent reduction in your waist line. It typically falls under the category of semi permanent body modification where people modify the shape & circumference of their waist. Results vary because people’s end goals with this process, how long it takes for them to see results, and how-long the results last are oftentimes very different!

Objectives

Arguably the most common goal for women (and men) embarking on a regimen is to gradually reduce their natural, un-corseted waist measurement, to a specific size or even by a specific amount. It isn’t a quick and easy process. It does take time and dedication, often several hours of daily or near daily wear for years or months to see results. Some people opt to reduce their waists yet maintain a more-or-less natural shape, while others train to take on different shapes, an instance would be a pipestem silhouette. This process must be undertaken over a prolonged time period and shouldn’t be rushed. Another reason someone might choose to train, is to tight-lace to an even smaller waist.

Other key differences

Tight lacing falls under the category of-corset training since this act also uses a steel-boned corset. A corset trainer and a waist trainer are quite different. Corsets are typically made of leather or-other strong materials. On the other hand, trainers are undergarments made of latex & spiral or plastic-boning. The spiral steel boning offers a healthy alternative as it flexes with the body and doesn’t restrain you, or cause the ribs to shift position. Unlike corsets, waist trainers feature rows of interlocks in-the front which secure you safely with no damaging effects as that of corsets lancing. They work by targeting your fat-cells in order to help you reduce your waist line and achieve curves. When properly worn they have no health risks.

Waist training corsets have been worn for decades. But since they are worn almost daily, they require special care and attention in order to ensure they maintain their color, quality and shape. Here are 5 steps to help you take care of this important garment.

1. Break It In

Before wearing a waist trainer for a while, more than an hour, it is best to first break it in. Lace it up properly and put it on in the house for short sessions, about 20-30 minutes for around a week to ensure the corset is conformed to your body before wearing it for long sessions.

2. Hand wash

You should never put your corset in a dryer. This is because most corsets are made of metal or steel and machine washing will get it distorted and rusted. Instead spot clean it with cold water and lay it flat to dry. You can also line it up on a hanger to dry.

Use a damp cloth to spot clean and be careful with the fabric. When hand washing, avoid spraying fabric fresheners on satins, brocades or velvets but you can use it on corset lining to freshen them up.

If you choose to have your corset dry cleaned, choose a dry cleaner with experience in cleaning as they are dry cleaned by hand.

3. Use Corset Liners

As stated above, washing it frequently ruins it. If possible, consider wearing absorbent liners underneath to prevent sweat from reaching the corset. This in turn reduces the frequency of washing and helps to maintain the bright colors of the corset.

4. Loosen while wearing and removing it

Before wearing and when removing your corset, always loosen the straps fully to prevent damaging the stays, the boning of the corset.

After taking it off, drape it with the lining side up over the door or chair. This allow it to air out and perspiration to evaporate. If it begins to smell, use light mist fabric freshener and a damp cloth to spot clean it.

5. Store properly

After cleaning your corset, you should not fold it. First dry it outside in the sun with the lining inside out and ensure that it is completely dry before storing it. However, be careful not to leave it for long periods of time as it will damage and fade the fabric.

Now hang your sorest on a hanger and ensure tension is distributed evenly. If the room has moisture, store a desiccant with the corset to keep the metals for rusting.

Additional care tips:

You should not share your waist trainer with another person as it is specifically designed for your body shape and allowing another person to wear it will only distort the shape.

Also, never lace up the corset tighter than required. Straining the grommets will only make them to break and fall off.

Taking proper care of your corset not only makes it to last longer but also enhances its effectiveness.

The body shaper tones the body and reduces your appetite which helps in toning your body and accelerates weight loss at the same time. The hour glass figure of Kim Kardashian is one of the beautiful results of using these body shapers.

What is a Body Wrap?

Cost effective The body shaper is a one-time investment and it can start from anywhere around $30. The body wraps are disposed after using and their price would be around $15. The cost of the products would majorly depend on the manufacturing brand and if you opt for a spa body wrap then it would be expensive according to the type of body wrap spa you opt for.

ComfortBody shapers are much easier to wear and one can easily wear it under a dress or garment, unlike the body wraps which can get a little messy if not taken care of. Body shapers are doing much better among consumers since women find them much easier to use and they can wear it for longer periods of time.

Bottomline

There are rumors which suggest that using body shapers for too long is not good for health, however, there haven’t been any major health issue case caused by any Body shapers which imply that if used in moderation it would be perfectly fine. However, it is highly recommended that you do not go to sleep wearing a body shaper. Between the Body Shaper and a Body wrap, the Body Shaper is a better option since you can wear it underneath your clothes for hours together. The Body wrap, on the other hand, needs a lot of attention else it would just end up in a big mess.
