While trying to mold your body to a perfect figure 8 shape in an unconventional way (unnatural), no matter how nice you will look like try consider the health implications you will have later on after achieving your desired shape either with a ‘corset’ or the one in vogue; ‘waist trainer’.
For many decades, both men and women have worn corsets. In recent years, the name “corset” has fallen out of favor, and the more modern phrase “waist trainer” has taken its place. Despite small differences, both of these clothes promise to slim your waist. They do not, however, produce the desired result and may harm your health in the process.
Bright Side encourages you to think about how your body will change if you start wearing a corset or waist trainer every day.
1. You won’t be able to come up with an hourglass figure.
When you wear a waist trainer, your waist will appear smaller. It will, however, revert to its previous state if you remove it. Even if you notice changes right away after removing the waist trainer and for a short length of time later, the effect will fade quickly.
2. You won’t be able to lose weight
You may notice that you’ve lost weight after using a waist trainer for a period. This weight, on the other hand, is almost probably water from perspiration rather than body fat. You can reduce some body fat by using the waist trainer because it squeezes your stomach and makes you feel complete. However, this weight-loss strategy is neither healthy nor sustainable.
3. You’ll be irritable
Even if you think you’re losing weight after using a waist trainer, the discomfort is likely to exceed the advantages. Researchers chose to explore if wearing a corset could help people maintain a healthier weight over time in a 2010 article on weight loss. They were unable to complete this section of the study, however, since the corsets were uncomfortable for most of the subjects.
4. You could develop back problems
When you use a waist trainer, it will assist you maintain good posture. However, if you wear it for an extended period of time, it may weaken your core muscles. As a result, removing it may result in poor posture as well as back pain.
5. It will become more difficult to breathe.
A waist trainer might also make it difficult to breathe. It also has the potential to reduce lung function by 30% to 60%. As a result of this, you will pass out.
6. It’s possible that your organs and ribs will be damaged.
A waist trainer has an effect on your internal organs since it squeezes your chest. This compression has the ability to change the position of your organs, as well as the way they function and your blood flow. Corsets should not be used every day or for long periods of time since they can induce ribcage deformation.

Postpartum means the time after childbirth. Most women get the “baby blues,” or feel sad or empty, within a few days of giving birth. For many women, the baby blues go away in 3 to 5 days. If your baby blues don’t go away or you feel sad, hopeless, or empty for longer than 2 weeks, you may have postpartum depression.
