How to clean your waist trainer

At Your Waist Trainer, we always say ‘you never get a second chance to make a great first impression’. For women, this means having the best body shape possible and feeling absolutely comfortable in that body.

Waist trainers have been used for centuries to achieve this ideal. Not only are they effective, modern waist trainers are beautiful and provide excellent support. Due to these qualities, they are valuable items of clothing in our closets. To experience the benefits of waist trainers for a long time, it is important to ensure that we maintain them well through regular cleaning. To do this effectively, there are some guidelines on how to clean your waist trainer.

Cleaning items that you require

To clean your waist trainer, you need various items, including a soft cloth and mild shampoo or body soap. You also need some warm water in a bowl or basin. These items are all you need for cleaning up your waist trainer. It is strongly recommended not to use detergent, since some contain dyes, alcohol, bleach or fragrances and all of these could damage your waist shaper.


Begin by dipping the soft cloth in the warm water and lathering it up. The mild shampoo or body soap comes in handy for this purpose. Wash the cloth a little so as to soften it up further before using it on the waist trainer. After that, soap it up and rub gently on your waist trainer.

Since most waist trainers are made of latex, please be gentle to prevent damaging the fabric. Latex is a very strong material, it gives for instance the compression you are looking for, but when cleaning your waist trainer, it can be easily damaged, so please wash it carefully. Proceed to wipe every visible surface of the shapewear while periodically dipping the cloth in the soapy water. After that, rinse the cloth in clean water and wipe down your waist trainer. Ensure that you wipe it thoroughly so that there is no soapy residue on it.

After wiping everything off, please hang the waist trainer up to dry. Do not wring it! Simply drip dry it on the line, preferably in a well-ventilated area. The garment should be dry before you wear it again. If the waist trainer is not dry to the touch, then please have a bit more patience, because then it is not dry enough to wear it.


Never clean your waist trainer in a washing machine! Let us repeat that: never ever wash your waist trainer in a washing machine! Not only can it break up the steel bones, which are essential in waist training, but this can also cause the latex or to shrink. Furthermore, it can discolor the waist trainer. In addition to that, do not hang your waist trainer to dry in direct sunlight, which could also discolor the garment.

Waist trainer storage

Store your waist training corset in a drawer or a closet, where it is not exposed to direct sunlight and preferably lay it flat, although you could also hang it. You can also hang your waist training garment on a lingerie hanger. Please make sure not to roll it up, because that will damage your shapewear.


Waist trainers are effective for developing a beautiful hourglass shape. They have helped millions of women around the world to create seductive silhouettes. Please use this tutorial to keep yours clean. It is not necessary to clean your shapewear every time after wearing it, you can use the trainer a couple of times between laundry cycles, but it is necessary to clean the garment regularly so they keep their compression and shape. These guidelines will help you keeping your waist trainer soft, supple and fresh.
