Waist Training

July 27, 2015

By Jacqueline Presley, Miss July 2015

OK, Imma talk about a “womanly” issue. Not tampons, don’t worry. Those of us who have had children: you might be experiencing something I have. I’ve become a box. I’m talking about my waist. Where I used to have curves, there are no curves. Do you know what I mean? Here’s an example:

Square belly

Do you see it? My waist is like a square. It used to not be. Here’s what’s going on under there: It’s called Diastasis Recti. You can read more about it here.

I didn’t just have 2 pregnancies, I also had a c-section. They literally went in there & pushed those muscles aside to get the baby (Katie) out. I have tried everything to bring those muscles back together. Nothing has worked well. A couple of months ago I read an article about Kim Kardashian doing waist training & I began to read more about how to do it properly. Basically, you wear a corset through the process of exercising & eating right. The combination is dramatic. Within 1 week, I noticed a difference. Week 2, I was able to wear the next size down in pants (without the corset on) & I hadn’t lost any weight. It puts the muscles where they should be as I exercise, so they get stronger in the right place. I’m starting to get my curve back: 


You should definitely try it!
