No matter how big or small your budget is, your waist trainers are an investment and of course you would like to enjoy your piece of shapewear as long as possible and get the best value from them.
Therefore it is important that you care for your waist training products in a proper way and there are several essential steps that you should follow:
Breaking in your waist trainer
In our tutorial ‘How to use a waist trainer’, you can read how to put on a waist trainer and what you should do when wearing it for the first time. Please make sure that you do not overtighten the trainer when wearing it for the first time, you should be able to put a couple of fingers under your corset. Build up the time that you wear your waist trainer, start with 1 or 2 hours for the first days, and then build up by 1 or 2 hours every 3 days. After approximately two weeks, you are able to wear it for 6 or 7 hours each day and that would also be a good moment to tighten the waist trainer a bit.
Cleaning your waist trainer
Of course, you would like to enjoy the benefits of your waist trainer for a long time and therefore it is important that you clean your shapewear in a correct way. In our tutorial ‘How to clean your waist trainer’, you can read guidelines on how to clean your waist trainer.
The safest, but at the same time also the most expensive option, is dry cleaning. But you can certainly clean the waist trainer if you follow the right steps. Please make sure to never clean your waist trainer in a washing machine, do not hang your waist trainer to dry in direct sunlight and do not roll up your waist training products.
