Waist Training – Sensible Advice for safe Waist Reduction

Waist training is the process of permanently altering your figure by wearing heavy laced corsets for long periods of time (usually over the course of many months). Although Corset Story “Waist Taming” & “Expert Waist Training” garments are suitable for Waist Training please be aware that there are can be serious side effects to the process for the uninitiated.

Corset Story is a leading expert on the design & development of Waist Training Corsets but we always advice customers considering Waist Training to speak to a Medical Professional before beginning. We are not experts on your health, we do not have access to your medical history and we are not medically qualified to give such advice.

This is your body we are talking about, we want you to enjoy successful results, but not at the cost of your wellbeing. Our team are here to help you select the perfect fitting corset which is most suitable for your requirements. It would be irresponsible to give advice on Waist Training practices and techniques, we are simply not qualified. If interested in in the process of Waist Training we always recommend you take your Corset Story corset to your Doctor or GP and explain to them exactly what you are looking to achieve. They know your medical history and are there to monitor you throughout the process.

Be smart, do your research, understand the risks, make sure you are supervised. Corset Story has commissioned a report from the qualified medical professional around the subject of Waist Training, this can be viewed by clicking here Sensible Advice for Waist Training


General Safety Advice

For those of you with medical conditions please consult your Doctor before tight lacing your corset.

Waist Training is not suitable for teenagers or adults who are still developing.

Keep garments out of the reach of children, although these corsets are manufactured to a very high standard they are made from small components which over time may come loose. The faux crystals are glue on, lacing can be removed and eyelets may come loose. These all pose a choking hazard for children, some of the materials that the corsets are made from are flammable; do not smoke in the corset.

Satin polyester can be an irritant, for people with sensitive skin we strongly recommend you purchase a garment with a cotton lining. If you notice any form of rash or change in skin colour then please remove the garment straight away and consult a doctor.

In the unlikely event of legal disputes against our business UK law prevails.



Paypal, Mastercard, VISA, JCB, Amex and a host of local payment methods specific to your country are accepted through our 100% 128bit secure checkout.
