A waist trainer is a high-compression shaping garment that you wear around your midsection to slim your waistline instantly and supplement your fitness goals.
Almost every woman is very particular about their body shape and always wants to be fit and maintain a good body stature, hence the sudden love for waist trainers.
Wearing waist trainers is not necessarily a bad option to keep fir but wearing them too often is where the problem lies. The constant wearing of waist trainers might lead to back pains and also changes in body posture.
Its very common now for women to wear waist trainers, but these are just a few dangers associated with this that I think every woman should be aware of.
I will discuss 3 below;
1.) Repositions Internal Organs
The main aim for wearing the waist trainers is to make the waist look smaller than its current size, which it achieves but it also tends to destroy your body structure from the inside. The constant wearing of the waist trainer will lead to a change or shift of the abdominal organs like the intestine to shift downwards because of the pressure the waist trainer puts on the tummy.
2.) It Limits Blood Flow
The constant wearing of a waist trainer does not only reposition the internal organs, but it also limits blood flow due to the compression. This could cause you to experience pins and needles or numbness in your legs.
3.) Increases The Chances Of Indigestion And Heartburn
It does not only cause pain, but recurring acid reflux can cause long-term damage by eroding the walls of the esophagus. The waist trainer pressing on your stomach up higher increases your chance of heartburn and indigestion.
