The Definitive Waist Training Guide with Corsets


Why did we write the Waist Training guide?

Obtaining an hourglass figure isn’t exactly easy, and we continually get questions from ladies who seem lost in the process. We wanted to provide a guide that would clear up a lot of the questions and provide some answers on what to expect when approaching waist training with corsets. We don’t expect to answer every question but we intend to answer most of them. Waist training doesn’t exactly have a “perfect formula” as results vary significantly from person to person, but we will try and outline the things that will contribute to your success.

Who is this Corset Guide for?

This guide is for everyone who wants to take up waist training or improve their waist training techniques or goals. With that being said we are primarily writing the guide to help beginners and women who might be interested in waist training decide if it is right for them. Along with that, hopefully we can provide a few tips and tricks that experienced waist trainers didn’t know or needed to be reminded about!

What exactly is Waist Training?

Waist training is a method in which a person (usually women) wears a Corset for extended periods of time in order to shrink their waist and increase the size of their buttocks. The method dates back centuries and has proven to be effective throughout history. Although waist training works, some people have expressed concerns as to the effect it will have on your internal organs and overall health. If you’re someone that is worried that waist training might be dangerous, refer to our article on the topic here.

Is Waist Training for You?

To me this is the most important part of the entire guide. In this economy it is imperative that we spend our money wisely, and QUALITY corsets aren’t cheap. If you’re thinking of taking up waist training because it’s “easier than working out” you’re probably not going to be very successful. I’m not saying you won’t have success because as some of us find it easier to perform certain tasks. An example that is relevant would be that some people enjoy lifting weights, while some people hate it, but enjoy running. All I’m saying is that waist training is hard, the saying “No pain, no gain” most definitely applies. The “technique” of waist training is easy; the hard part is wearing a corset for prolonged periods of time. As you can imagine having your waist compressed for hours on end can be uncomfortable, it takes a lot of dedication and determination to keep cinching your waist and dealing with the pain. At the end of the day, I can’t make the decision to corset train for you I can only tell you that it’s not a walk in the park.

Which Waist Training Corset should I Buy?

Well, I’m glad you’ve moved on to this paragraph that means you’re interested in corsetry and I for one am glad that you’ve decided to pursue it! Choosing which waist training corset to buy isn’t a walk in the park, hopefully we can simplify the process and eliminate a headache. Generally there are two types of corsets when it comes to waist training an overbust corset and an underbust corset. An over bust corset is a corset which comes over a women’s breasts; similarly an underbust corset is one that stops below a women’s breasts. The most common corset to get is an underbust corset as they tend to suit the needs of most women. Make sure that the corset you’re purchasing is of the highest  quality, read reviews and only purchase a waist training  corset if it is a steel boned corset. Below we outline the reasons to get each style of corset:

Reasons to get an Underbust Corset:

  • They provide more mobility
  • They fit under clothing better
  • They are more cost efficient
  • They allow more lung capacity
  • They are easier to size or fit

An Underbust Corset

Although an overbust corset isn’t as popular, for certain women there are definitely reasons to consider them.

Reasons to get an Overbust Corset:

  • They provide better posture support
  • They support large breasts
  • They can reduce and/or remove upper back pain / problems
  • They can reduce or prevent pain from shoulder problems



An Overbust Corset

What Size Corset Should I get?

Choosing which type of corset is generally an easy choice, choosing the size however can be more complicated. Since buying a corset off the internet is the only choice for most people, it can be difficult to gauge what corset you need without trying it on. The most accurate way to size yourself for a corset is to measure your waist with a measuring tape. It is important to follow these steps in order to correctly measure your waist.

How to Measure your waist:

  • Wrap the measuring tape around your waist and pull it snug, but not tight.
  • Make sure there is no slack on the measuring tape.
  • Find your “Natural Waist” which is the smallest portion of your waist generally located just above the belly button.


If you are buying an overbust corset, you will be required to measure your bust.

How to Measure your Bust:

  • Wrap the measuring tape around your bust, pull it snug but not tight
  • When wrapping the measuring tape make sure it goes over the fullest part of your bust (Usually directly over top of your nipples) and around your back.
  • Leave no slack on the measuring tape.
  • Read the measurement.

At this point you should have chosen a style of corset, and have acquired your waist and bust (If you want an overbust corset) measurements. Now its time to determine what size corset is right for you. More often than not your corset size falls about 4-6 inches below your waist measurement. If you have a size 35 waist, you’re most likely going to need a size 30 corset. If you are new to wearing a waist training corset it is better to get one that is too big, than it is to get one that is too small. A corset that is too small will be painful and most likely ruin the experience of waist training. If you are a beginner we suggest getting a corset that is a reduction of approximately 3-4 inches. It’s important to keep in mind that these are guidelines to go by when sizing a corset, each individual is different. Someone who has more muscle will find it harder to get a corset that is 6 inches below their waist measurement, where someone with more fat tissue will find it easier. The reason for this is that it is easier to compress fat tissue. For reasons like that choosing a corset is different for every individual and a decision needs to be made keeping those factors in mind.

Here’s a video on how to measure your waist, and your bust.


Breaking in Your Corset

So you’ve chosen a size, bought your corset and it has arrived. The moment you got your corset you probably tried it on and determined you got the wrong size. Rest assured, you probably got the correct size no new corsets fit properly. Every corset has some irregularities unless it is custom made and molded exactly for your body. In order to get a corset to fit, you need to work it in and season it. After a couple weeks of wearing a corset it will begin to set to your body and all the minor discomforts you incurred will be gone. Although tightening your corset up all the way when you first receive it is important to determine if you got the correct size, it is important not to tighten it up prior to breaking it in properly. If you tightlace immediately you risk damaging your garment and losing the significant investment that you’ve made. It’s not only important not to tighten the corset up all the way for the sake of the corset, but if you tightlace you run the risk of pushing your body too hard, too fast.

How to break in your corset:

  1. Wear your corset for approximately 1-2 hours a day for the first two weeks.
  2. If you’re impatient and wish to break your corset in quicker, wear your corset 2 times a day for 2 hours each.
  3. Don’t lace yourself in more than 4-5 CM.
  4. Increase the tightness a SLIGHT AMOUNT each time you dawn your corset.


Which Waist Training Method?

In the corset world there are generally two methods that are used. One method requires you to wear a specific waist reduction for a specific amount of time, for a specific amount of days. An example would be having a waist that is 32 inches and wearing your corset at a reduction of 2 inches (30 inches). You wear your corset at this reduction until you are able to wear it for an entire day (about 8 hours). After you have achieved a couple weeks of wearing your corset at the desired reduction you then reduce the size by another 2 inches. After you have reduced it by 2 inches, you work your way back up the 8 hour mark and repeat the process. Using this method requires you to be mindful of the amount of time you’re wearing a corset and the reduction you’re wearing it at, I recommend that you keep a log or a spreadsheet of your progress.

The second method requires a little less discipline and isn’t as stringent. This method is taking into consideration that the density of your body fluctuates on a day to day basis from belatedness, or water retention. Therefore when you’re lacing up you go by a “feel” you tighten your corset to a tightness that seems similar to the one you’ve been using previously. This can be compared to how you tighten your shoes to a level of comfort that is normal for you. If you’re wearing the corset and it doesn’t feel tight, tighten it. If you’re wearing the corset and it feels loose, loosen it. This method allows you to work within your limits, reduces stress, and keeps waist training somewhat comfortable.


In conclusion it’s important to remember that waist training is what you want to make it for yourself. If you want to have a serious reduction in the size of your waist, it is up to you to put in the conceited effort to make it happen. However; if you’re someone who wants to take your time and enjoy wearing your corset and not make your goals result orientated that’s fine too. One of the beautiful things about waist training is that it’s a personal experience which is different for every individual. Either way, we have compiled some waist training tips to help you with your goals.

I hope that you’ve found our waist training guide informative, helpful and enjoyable. If you feel as if we’ve left anything out or that we need to add anything to perfect the corset guide, please let us know.

One of the main goals when it comes to physical appearance these days is for women to achieve a small waist, and have a big butt. Women spend hours, worrying about their physical appearance and it just so happens that big butts are trending right now. One of the reasons for this is the emergence of big butted celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Nicki Minaj who are dominating the news. As a society we tend to gravitate towards what is popular, and this is especially true when it comes to our looks. There are various ways to achieve a big butt but the most effective way is wearing a corset and waist training. All of the celebrities that have achieved “The Look” have been supporters of wearing waist training corsets. Waist training has been proven to increase your butt size, give you a flat stomach and slim your waist.


how to get a bigger butt with corsets and waist training

Waist training not only gives women a bigger butt, but also a flat stomach. Wearing a steel boned waist training corset or waist cincher over prolonged periods of time redistributes a women’s fat. It pushes the excess fat from the stomach and distributes it to the lower half of the body, primarily the buttocks. You could compare the phenomenon to squeezing the last bit of toothpaste out of a toothpaste tube. As you squeeze the toothpaste out it creates a “flat end” and an end that is more “plump” below it. Not only does corset training help you achieve this look, but it is also safe and doesn’t cost thousands of dollars.

Getting that “big booty” look can be done only by waist training, however; it is recommended that you supplement the training by incorporating, proper diet, and exercise.

Diet and its role in achieving a big booty

There are various diets out there to follow and even one (which I recommend) titled “The Corset Diet” which is specifically for ladies who want to achieve the fastest results when waist training. However; the corset diet is not essential. Proper diet practices are the same as any healthy diet, eating 6 small meals throughout the day is paramount as well as eating the right amount of calories. Although a strict diet does not need to be followed when waist training it is important to remember that while wearing your corset you are constricting your stomach much like how the “lap band system” works. Therefore I recommend that you do not eat or drink things that will make you bloated or gassy.

Exercise and how it helps with curves

No pain, no gain! Exercise is a crucial part of “butt training” if you do not want to have a plump, soft butt (If you do, there is nothing wrong with that!). Cardiovascular (Aerobic) and weight training will help you attain that firm booty look.

Cardiovascular training is defined as any physical exercise of low to high intensity that requires an excess demand of oxygen. Hitting levels that require more of a demand in oxygen will put your body in a “fat burning stage” which will lower your body fat and make your butt more prominent. Some good cardiovascular exercises that are beneficial to “butt training” are: running, jogging, swimming, cycling and speed walking.

Weight training is defined as any type of resistance training that develops the strength and size of skeletal muscles by using the force of gravity to oppose the force generated by muscle. Working out your buttocks muscles will turn the soft fat on your butt into a firm muscle which will cause your butt to become larger and “lifted”. Three of the best exercises to increase the size of your buttocks are: squats, lunges and deadlifts.


How to Squat for a bigger butt:

Squats are a multifaceted exercise which uses your entire body. The squat is done by bending your hips and knees and lowering your body until your hips go below your knees. Squats are an exercise that targets your hamstring, quads, glutes, groin, abs, oblique’s and lower back. However; for our purpose of achieving a big butt, the muscle that matters is our glutes, that is referred to as the “butt muscle”.

    1. 1. Stand with your feet a bit wider than shoulder width, line your hips up over your knees.
    2. Pull your shoulders back and round them away from your neck. It is important to have a neutral spine at this step. This is our neutral and impartial position.
    3. Place your arms away from your body so that they are parallel with the floor, face your palms towards the ground.
    4. Start your squat by taking a deep breath gingerly moving your hips backwards.
    5. Keep moving your hips backwards, at this point you will begin to notice that your knees will naturally begin to bend.
    6. As you are moving towards the “seated position” it is imperative that you maintain your upper body position. You want your chest and shoulders to stay strong, neutral and upright. At this point in the movement your back should also be honest.
    7. In order to get the most out of your squat you want to go as deep as you can without injuring yourself. The deeper squats activate more of your muscles which will lead to better results. You want to aim for a squat depth where your hips dip below your knees.
    8. It is important to remember that as you squat you want to activate your ab muscles. This will lead to a strong core for your workout and prevent injury.

How to do Lunges for a bigger butt.

Lunges are a body weight exercise that primarily strengthens your glutes. To do a lunge you lean forward on one foot with all your body weight and prop yourself up and then continue with the other foot.

  1. Lift up your chest, look straight forward, keep a straight back.
  2. Step forward with your left or right foot and sink down so that your front foot knee tracks over the top of your foot and your other knee points towards the floor.
  3. At this point you can either push back to the starting position, or continue with the opposite foot. They work the same muscles but they are two different ways to do the lunge, both are fine.


How to do Dead lifts for a bigger butt

Often the dead lift is overlooked by the squat, but the pulling motion of the dead lift is great for incorporating your glutes and building the muscle in your buttocks. The deadlift is when a person takes a barbell from the ground and lifts it to hip level.

  1. Take your hands and place them on the barbell laying on the ground in front of you. Your hands should be about shoulder width apart.
  2. There are different methods to grip the bar, however the standard method is to grip the bar overhand with one hand and underhand with the other.
  3. Boost the bar by pushing your feet on the floor.
  4. It is important to keep a straight back, maintain your balance, and “drag” the bar up your shins.
  5. It is important not to bounce the bar to get it to hip level or to bend your back once you have the bar at hip level.


In conclusion, waist training as its own individual method most definitely can give you a bigger butt, but for best results its important to supplement it with a proper diet and exercise.
