Following pregnancy, there’s a lot your body needs to go through and it’s important not to push your body too fast postpartum. “Waist training” and “waist taming” are social buzz words following celebrity pregnancies and you may be wondering what they are talking about. Essentially, waist training or taming in this sense is the act of wearing a latex waist cincher to achieve a more hourglass figure.
Waist trainers or post-natal bands can be great for new mums by giving that bit of extra support, but can they be doing more harm than good? In this article we discuss our top 3 tips for getting your waist back following pregnancy.
Top 3 Tips
1. Waist Training
If you have a special event to attend and you want to accentuate an hourglass figure, then a waist trainer is a great option. However, it can only achieve a temporary effect and it certainly won’t end in weight loss. Care needs to be taken not to wear it too tight as it can shift organs and make breathing difficult. A waist trainer won’t help speed up the uterus shrinking, it won’t fix your abs or help with loss of excess fluid either.
2. Strengthening Exercises
For a flatter, more toned stomach, we recommend strengthening your core and stomach muscles. Strengthening your core can also help avoid those little accidents when coughing, sneezing or laughing following pregnancy. Wearing a waist trainer for extended periods may actually reduce your core strength.
If you are looking for more permanent results compared to waist training, we recommend UltraShape Power treatment. UltraShape Power body sculpting can help you lose centimetres from your waist with clinically proven, non-surgical treatments.
UltraShape non-surgical liposuction and body sculpting permanently destroys fat cells in the treatment area. For that post-baby tummy bump or “love handles”, it’s an ideal way to target stubborn areas of fat around the stomach and flanks.
UltraShape was developed to sculpt and contour the body. Areas that are suitable for treatment include the stomach, flanks (love handles), thighs, buttocks, hips and arms. You will see results from three sessions. Treatments are quick (around 1.5 hours) and are comfortable so there is no downtime.
