Indications for use of a corset for weight loss
Many modern women are interested in the question of whether it is possible to fully lose weight with the use of corsets. Note that weight loss is possible, but for a positive effect, a complex effect on the muscles of the hips, waist and abdomen is extremely necessary. That is why wearing a belt should be combined with aerobics, fitness or any physical activity. The indications for the use of the tightening belt are determined by its features:

From the positive moments, we note the following:
- Increase self-esteem. Self-confidence directly depends on the sensation of external attractiveness. Because of the slimming underwear, the silhouette always preserves feminine, slender forms.

Reviews thin with corsets

It is fully compression, no sweating, and the muscles get used to the tone in the process of wearing. Visible under clothing, so sometimes I wear it on top of everything.
- Alyona: When I saw the photo before and after using the Waist trainer (sculpting clothes), I was amazed at the difference. Bought, and for a long time could not understand my mistake. Then it came to me. There are two types of them - neoprene and latex. Neoprene are very inconveniently tailored, constantly picked up and rolled, but latex ones immediately “draw” beautiful feminine curves.
