These waist training corsets have the most slimming and reshaping capability of any in our range. In fact, we're pretty confident that these corsets are amongst the most serious on the market, outside of specialist medical products. The potential waist reduction is around seven inches for most wearers. We do strongly recommend starting with less tight lacing and working your way up (or in) to a sexy hourglass over a period of time. In order to achieve a waist reduction of six or seven inches, a training corset needs to be very well constructed. We use 24 spiral steel bones to make sure our work as well as possible and deliver the results our customers want. The waist training range is made by the best people at our disposal- experts who know how to make a really outstanding corset. Even the cords are made with easy lacing and super strength in mind. Of course, a serious corset can look spectacular too. Ours are faced in the finest, richest fabrics- satin, brocade, taffeta and jacquard of excellent quality. They're designed to look good while standing to the demands of prolonged tight lacing. Wearing waist training garments over a long period of time can change your body shape, and not just while you're actually wearing the corset. Permanent changes are possible. In fact, for some people a long-term change in body shape is the ultimate goal. If you're one of them, remember that anything that changes your body shape permanently is a pretty big deal. Talk to a medical professional before starting this kind of program.
