Thousands of you have searched for waist training before and after pictures, and I’ve promised to deliver: welcome to a compilation of corset training results from some of my friends and acquaintances in the corseting community. Below you will see some pictures, videos and stories of how corsets have played an integral role in helping people to reshape their bodies. Some have experienced weight loss along with their waist training, and others have not. A few have even gained weight, but still lost inches in their waist! As you read these, please note that not all of these results are typical – some have trained faster or farther than I would have personally condoned, and extreme results are often the result of extreme practices. Remember to speak with a trusted health professional before you implement corset training, and have your health monitored throughout the process.

*The photos and stories featured here were freely shared by the corseters, and Lucy has personally ensured that they are all legal adults who made the educated choice to pursue corsetry.*

Model Penny Brown’s results are rather extreme, because she achieved dramatic results in only three months. Prior to deciding to corset train, Penny had a brief period of rapid weight gain due to stress. In her before picture (the night she decided to start corset training), she had a natural waist of 38 inches. With a combination of exercise and waist training 23 hours a day, she lost all her stress weight and brought her natural waist down to 26 inches – a reduction of 12 inches in her natural waist. Penny mentions that the corset in her before / after photos are the same one, named “Wesley” which she altered as needed from a size 36″ down to size 24″ – over the course of three months. Penny stressed the importance of core strength exercises when training 23/7, and said she could perform up to 200 sit-ups in a single set. When Wesley finally broke and Penny went without any maintenance corseting, it took nearly 6 months to lose the results. (Lucy’s note: This is super hardcore, and not for everyone – I generally recommend a corseted reduction of about 1 inch per month, or what feels most comfortable for you.)

Monique

Before Monique started corset training, she was already slender with a natural waist of 25-26 inches depending on the day. Over the course of only four months, she managed to cinch down 5 inches in her corset. “I’ve taken it slow no bruising or pain what’s so ever,” Monique says. “Everyone’s bodies are different, I truthfully thought it would take much longer to close my 20inch and see any results.” Her natural waist reduced an average of 3 inches in this time, to 22.5 inches when not wearing her corset. Monique documents her waist training on her instagram here.
