Whether you have purchased a waist trainer before or if this is the first time you are considering it, there are a few things that you should always pay attention to before buying the best waist corset.
Below are the topmost four traits to look for in a good waist cincher;
1. Sturdy Fabric
Anything that seems very thin or lumpy is a bad idea. Therefore you should focus more on a sturdy taffeta or satin fabric. In fact, pretty cotton twill or denim is also a good choice.
Moreover, the sturdy fabric also gets down to the fabric content. Cotton, polyester and silk or a blend of any of these is a guaranteed choice. Well, if you prefer Rayon and acetate? We would say – not really!
By merging the outer fabric with the lining, it not only avoids unnecessary bunching but also adds strength to the corset because a good waist trainer already has the fabric fused to the lining.
2. A Steel Busk Front Closure
There are waist trainers that are available with zipper closures – but it’s not the best idea. Indeed, they can be cinched in the full 6 to 7 that most of the waist trainers promise.
However, a zipper thing is not compatible to endure that sort of pressure. You might love your new zip front corset, but it won’t be able to love you back. Yes, it won’t be able to hold the pressure in the same way a busk front closure will and also the zip front corset may not have the same lifespan as a steel busk front closure.
And truth be told, under no circumstances will a hook, and eye tape ever do the trick when it comes to waist training. Hook and eye closures are nothing like a steel busk front closure. You know those little hooks that fasten your bra? Yes, those are hook and eye closures!
If you come across a “waist cincher” that has no lining or padding to it, then just do not stop looking. No good waist cincher is without a lining. Now, it doesn’t have to be 100% cotton. A cotton poly blend is also okay, but there should clearly be a lining, and it should entirely possess some natural fiber to it. To give you an idea, it should be like 60% cotton, 40% polyester.
Not only does a fused lining add durability to the waist cincher corset, but it enhances the wearer’s comfort and allows for the wearer’s skin to breathe comfortably.
4. Steel Boning Waist Trainer
There are just no second thoughts on it; it should be 100% steel boned waist trainer. There is not even a single corset out there which is made from plastic-acrylic boning. Fashion corsets are lovely, but they are meant to be worn more for the look of a corset and not for any sort of waist reduction.
Moreover, a good waist trainer possess both qualities ‘flat and spiral’ steel bones. Flat steel bones are tremendous and needed to form a solidly built corset, but they are customarily reserved to the front bust and the back panels. The body of the corset consist of spiral steel bones. A spiral steel bone has far more versatility, but all of the durability of a flat bone, and therefore, the spiral steel bones will allow the corset to mould more evenly to the curve of your hips, waist and bust.
Ultimately, any good waist trainer that is worth the investment will also symbolise in the description how many steel bones it features. If there is anything less than 20 steel bones, then it is undoubtedly not a waist trainer. It might still be an incredible steel boned corset, but it won’t deliver 6 to 7 of waist compression the way a waist trainer can.
Buy a steel boned waist trainer as this would give you the best support and also mould better to your shape, unlike plastic bones that tend to bend when you tighten them. The real key is getting the right size, and so we would recommend buying from us. All you need is HOWARD GOODS at your side – because we know that you only deserve the best!
