Wrap it up with women's waist cinchers from eBay

Waist training has been done by women for centuries, tracing back to the goddess Ishtar’s woven belt to increase fertility and the girdle worn by Babylonian women. Then the corset with intricate lacing became popular again in Medieval times.

Waist training is basically the use of a corset or cincher to modify a woman’s waist into an exaggerated hourglass shape with semi-permanent or short-term results. eBay is home to a variety of waist cincher options that can help you bring this practice into the present.

How does waist cinching work?

By cinching a corset tighter and tighter over time, the hourglass figure is attained by the waist trainer pushing a woman's floating ribs inwards and reducing the space in the abdomen. This, in theory, reduces the circumference of her waist. Because the effect isn’t permanent, it requires continued corseting after achieving the goal reduction and look.

Some women like to combine waist cinchers with women's activewear while working out.

Why cinch your waist?

Women wear corsets for many different reasons and situations. Some women wear them as a fashion statement, while other women may wear them under their clothing for back support or to help with their posture. Many women use waist cinchers because they want help obtaining the classic hourglass figure that many have sought for centuries.

Sometimes wearers also use women's waist cinchers as weight loss tools, as the accessories can act as a kind of external LAP band, not allowing large quantities of food to be eaten.

What are waist cinchers made of?

Corsets, waist cinchers, and waist tamers are all constructed using various different materials. Corsets are generally made using leather, cotton, mesh, or satin over a steel boning which offers a strong, sturdy structure that pushes in the waist and accentuates both the hips and bustline.

Waist cinchers are manufactured using spandex, nylon, or latex and the boning is usually made from either plastic or steel.

Waist tamers are often made from a blend of materials such as polyester and spandex, suitable for use under clothes and invisible while in use.
