Choosing The Best Plus Size Waist Trainer

As a plus sized woman, I know the struggle of trying to lose weight, especially around the midsection. Losing weight around your stomach is one of the hardest places to see any results.

There are many “get quick results” methods out there, such as supplements, crash diets, and waist trainers. At first, I was hesitant to delve into the world of plus size waist training.

Then I thought to myself, what do I have to lose?

The answer was: I had nothing but weight to lose.

I had never used plus size waist trainers before, so I didn’t have any idea what I was looking for in a plus size waist trainer.

A quick online search helped me realize that they weren’t that different from the waist cinchers and smoothers I was using anyway whenever I wore a form-fitting outfit to hide my rolls.

The only difference was, these waist cinchers promised to help me sweat more during my workouts, which would help me lose weight faster. I was skeptical, but I was willing to try it. I tried five different kinds of plus size waist trainers, which I've reviewed below.

Hopefully, if you’re interested in trying one, this review will help you make a decision.​

Camellia’s Corsets Women’s 26 Steel Boned Heavy Duty Waist Trainer Corset Shaper for Weight Loss


Camellia’s Corsets Women’s 26 Steel Boned Heavy Duty Waist Trainer Corset Shaper for Weight Loss

While I tried this waist trainer in plus size, it comes in all sizes for those who want to try it.

Pros

It’s a great product because it’s not just a waist trainer: it helps with back support, gives you a slimmer waist, and is safe enough to wear daily.

It’s even recommended for new mothers to wear to assist in their post-pregnancy weight loss.

I liked that I could wear it under my clothes just as a waist slimmer,  or  I  could  wear it  to help  with my  weight loss while I was working out. Having both of those things in the same product was extremely helpful.



In the meantime, I just added an extra pair of laces and removed them when I didn’t need the extra length anymore.

This is a very well-made plus size waist trainer. It was breathable, so I felt comfortable while I was wearing it when working out, but it was also sturdy enough to handle the movement. I definitely could tell the difference in the way I carried myself while wearing this one.

The cotton material close to my skin made me sweat more during my workouts, and I did lose weight! In two weeks, without changing anything in my routine except for wearing the corset, I lost an extra ten pounds!​

Cons

My only complaint is the laces weren’t long enough for me to lace myself up properly the first few times I wore it.

I have a large waist, so even though I bought the right size, the laces just weren’t quite long enough for me to get the maximum cinching I wanted.

This problem corrected itself within a few uses because the material began to form to my body.

I liked this plus size waist training corset because it was so durable and flexible at the same time.

The steel bones move to form to your body, and they’re good for your back support.

Another thing I liked about this particular design was that there were three rows of clasps in the front of the corset that allow you to adjust the size as you lose weight, so you don’t have to constantly replace it.

It also helps reduce your waist size by four to five inches when you first put it on, so you can immediately see results.

The latex material in this waist trainer helps you sweat more than Camellia’s cotton material, so I noticed that I sweat more when I used it while working out. The inside does have cotton material, so the sweat isn’t resting against your body.

I had to go for the largest size, 6XL, based on my waist measurement of 40”, and I found this measurement to be just right. As I lost weight, it was easy to adjust the fit of the corset.

Like the Camellia model, this corset is also made to be worn under your clothes as a waist cincher. I tried it this way too, and I was very pleased with the results.

I have a lot of dresses that are made of polyester, so you can see my rolls underneath them. The latex on the outside of this waist cincher makes the polyester in my dresses lay very nicely and I looked great in them.

My favorite characteristic of the Lover Beauty model was that it only covered my stomach: it stopped below my chest and above my pant line. This way, I can take it off easily if I needed to and not have the feeling of wearing a full bodysuit.

This model held up very well and I enjoyed wearing it. It breathed a little less easily than the Camellia model, but as long as I didn’t get too overheated, it worked very well.​


DILANNI Women Latex Waist Training Cincher Underbust Corset Body Shaper Waist Trainer


This plus size waist trainer was by far the most efficient as far as how many inches it took from of my waist.

I measured, and it took a full five inches off of my waist! This was before I even started using it during my workouts!

l liked that this waist trainer was safe enough to use every day.  Even though it was made with latex, it was still safe for me to use every day, which I liked because I got a lot of supportive comments while I was wearing it. It was very breathable, more so than the Lover Beauty latex waist trainer.

The DILANNI model also has three rows of clips in the front for flexibility as you lose weight. There’s also a cotton layer on the inside that will absorb your sweat as you’re wearing it, so it makes for a more comfortable experience.

The DILANNI model has something that the other models do not, and that’s thermal activity.

When you wear it, the extra latex in the corset increases your core temperature as you’re wearing it or as you’re working out, which means that you will burn more body fat than when you’re working out without it. You sweat more because of the boost in thermal activity.

Once I learned this, I started to pay attention to my body. I noticed that my workouts were more productive. I worked up a sweat easier and I felt like I was getting more of a workout. As a result, I lost more weight. I lost 15 pounds in two weeks by wearing the DILANNI plus size waist trainer.​


Leyiku’s Women’s Latex Underbust Waist Trainer Corset Body Shaper with 9 Steel Boned


The Leyiku’s Women’s Latex Underbust Waist Trainer is very similar to the DILANNI model, with the exception of being a little cheaper, depending on the size you get.

However, that doesn’t mean that you skip out on the quality of the product.

This model has three convenient rows of hooks to help you on your weight loss journey.


The latex exterior combined  with  the  cotton  interior helps  your workouts become more productive and helps you lose more weight faster. The product is also very durable and movable, which is helpful if you’re using it during your workouts.


One thing I noticed in the Leyiku model that the other models didn’t have was that the shape of the waist trainer, which stopped right below my bust, actually helped LIFT my bust. My chest looked perkier, and my waist looked smaller.

These were two excellent reasons to choose this model above the others.​


YIANNA Neoprene Sauna Suit Tank Top Vest with Adjustable Shaper Waist Trainer Belt


The YIANNA model was a little different than the other plus size waist trainers. This one was a neoprene tank top that has a waist cincher that goes on top of it.

The adjustable waistband lets you change the tightness of it according to your weight loss. Some people don’t like their waist compressors to include a bra, but I disagree.

I like mine to be connected because it makes my whole torso look better.​

The neoprene makes for an entirely different experience with the waist cincher. I felt like I had a little more freedom of movement than I did with the other models.

It still increases your thermal temperature, as the latex does, so you know you’re going to lose weight faster if you wear it during your workouts. One feature that this model had that the others did not is that it had an inside pocket to hold your phone or your mp3 player!

I hadn’t seen that on the other models, so if this is important to you during your workouts, then that would be reason enough to buy this product.​


To Summarize...


My journey into the world of plus size waist training was one of the most interesting journeys I've been on in a long time.

Not only did I lose weight and get in shape, I found some amazing products that will help me look better in my clothes. 

It would be hard for me to choose just one product that I could recommend to anyone, because each one had it benefits and its drawbacks.

I hope this guide will help you make your decision on your own waist trainer and help you in your weight loss journey.

Here are a few do's and don'ts you need to consider when wearing a waist trainer.
