Top 10 Waist Cinchers - Waist Cinchers That Take INCHES Off Your Waistline
Waist Cinchers are one of the most transforming pieces of shapewear. They are incredible, they make such a difference to your figure. Most other shapewear does lovely things like smooth and firm. However, they won't transform and make you go OMG. This is EXACTLY what a waist cincher will do!
What Are Waist Cinchers?
They are a very wide band of material (often latex or rubber) with boning (either plastic or steel) that you wrap around your waist and secure down the front. Your waist cincher should fit VERY TIGHTLY in order for them to really work. These are not for the faint-hearted...or for those planning on eating a BIG meal!
Why Are These So Many Cheap Waist Cinchers On Amazon?
The Chinese market has cleverly realised the popularity of waist cinchers. They have flooded the market with some very poor quality versions - and they are all over Amazon. Some people claim these are as good as the more expensive ones, however, a lot of the reviews on Amazon are dubious. I have purchased a couple of the cheap ones and they are...well...cheap. I'm not trying to get everyone to spend loads of money on a waist cincher, but in general you do get what you pay for.
Here is the run down of my top 10 waist cinchers:
In FIRST PLACE and my all time favourite (I have 2 that I wear loads) is the Esbelt Waist Cincher. This is an AMAZING waist cincher. It is made from latex/rubber with flexible boning. You secure it down your front with hooks and eyes - there are 2 settings. Tight or REALLY TIGHT. The inside is lined with cotton, so you can wear it next to your skin comfortably. It fits UK sizes 4 - 28 and comes in a natural/beige colour, or black.
This is the VEST version of the Esbelt Waist Cincher (ES404). It does exactly the same things as the regular waist cincher except it has a very high back and shoulder straps. The high back is brilliant if you tend to bulge over the top of a regular waist cincher, or if you have back boobs and bra bulges to disguise. You wear the Esbelt Waist Cincher Vest with your own bra, so you get the best possible shape.
The Miraclesuit Inches Off Waist Cincher is a different type of waist cincher. It ISN'T made from latex/rubber - great if you have an allergy to these materials. This does make is not so strong in slimming control (this is EXTRA FIRM, compared to MAXIMUM control). However, it is boned and made from very strong fabric, so it does an excellent job of slimming your waist.
Yes, I'm back on the Esbelt brand again. They make such good waist cinchers, and have recently brought out this new style waist cincher. It is designed to be worn both under regular clothing, and during workout sessions. Wearing waist cinchers and waist trainers to the gym has become really popular. Apparently it helps to increase gym results and helps you to gain and much narrower waistline (I don't go to the gym so I haven't tested this myself!). It is made from latex/rubber so it is super strong. The bones are angled to give you greater ease of movement, and the length it a little shorter to make it very comfortable to wear during exercise. The Esbelt Waist Training Corset comes in a bright pink or electric blue - very eye catching!
Whilst we are on eye catching waist cinchers, I had to bring in the Ann Chery Classic Boned Waist Cincher In Animal Print. These waist cinchers are WOW! They come in a bright pink or a yellow/gold animal print and they really make a statement. They are made from latex/rubber with boning and make a superb difference to your figure, whilst looking pretty awesome too!
Ann Chery also make a TERRIFIC waist trainer. This is a waist cincher designed to gradually train your waist. You start off on the widest setting and, over time, move up to the tightest setting (there are 3 levels). Ann Chery claim that with regular use it can take up to 5 inches off your waist! That is some waist training!
If all this latex and hooks and eyes are a bit much for you, have a look at the Miraclesuit Sexy Sheer Step In Waist Cincher. This waist cincher is EXTRA FIRM in slimming control - so a bit milder in control than the others. It is made from a double layered, soft fabric with sewn in flexible bones. You step into it - it is a bit of a wriggle job to work it up your body! It does a marvelous job of molding and smoothing your waistline, whilst being much more invisible and discreet under light or tight clothing.
This Ann Chery Waist Cincher is another one you can wear whilst doing exercise. It has 3 hook and eye settings, so you can train your waist whilst helping to maximise your workouts. It comes in pink and blue and has a latex core with a fabric outer layer.
Spanx have only just recently cottoned on to the waist cincher trend. In true Spanx style they have done it well and differently. The Spanx Boostie-Yay Comfy Waist Cinching Corset is a lovely piece of shapewear. It is EXTRA FIRM (or Sculpt) in slimming control and really does a great job of slimming and sculpting your waist. It has a SUPER DUPER tummy control panel to really target your belly bulges. It fastens around your waist with hooks and eyes, but these are down the back of the waist cincher (you need to do it up and swivel it round, like a bra). This helps to create a more invisible, streamlined look under your clothes.
This Ann Chery Waist Cincher is the BEST SELLER in America. It is a brilliant waist cincher that REALLY pulls you in at the waist, creating a more hourglass shaped figure. It is made from very high quality latex with strong, hidden boning. It fastens down the front with hooks and eyes (2 settings). It comes in natural/beige or black and fits waist measurements 23" - 37".
