What’s Tight Lacing?

Tight Lacing (a.k.a. Waist Training) is the term used to define the practice of wearing a corset on a daily basis with the purpose of modeling the body and cinching the waistline. In this case, the usage of the corset is deemed to be a therapy resource that offers clear-cut results, and not only as a casual piece of garment.


Through its modeling and structure, the corsets exerts direct influence in that it presses the floating ribs (the last two pairs of ribs that are not attached to any bone in their lower part). The floating ribs are responsible for the shape of the waistline and if they are too open they create a rectangle-shaped silhouette.


The corset reduces and models these ribs’ curvature, altering its format and making the waistline appear or reappear.


Tight Lacing is also responsible for a new routine as it brings within itself healthy obligations: making up for the period of usage of the corset (in which the abdominal muscles become stationary) with abdomen exercising is fundamental. Breathing exercises are also highly recommended.


During the Tight Lacing practice it is advisable to ingest light and healthy foods, in small portions.


If one responsibly observes this discipline, then it can bring actual changes in life and also well-being.

Can one sleep with the corset on?

It is possible to sleep with the corset on, but this practice demands that the body adapts perfeclty into the piece. If one wishes to sleep with the corset on, then the piece should not be adjusted the conventional way.


It is necessary to leave a looser lacing, especially in the thorax area in order to enable the diaphragm’s free expansion at night.

Should the corset be worn during meals?

One may wear the corset during meals. In this case it is advisable to take in smaller and lighter  meals -and more frequently- during the whole day.


In case you choose to take off your corset before the meals, it is necessary to wait between thirty minutes and one hour before putting it on again.

What is the minimum age for practicing Tight Lacing? Is there any age limit for training?

Corsets for Tight Lacing may be used just for women who have already gone through growth phase, which takes place when they reach the age of 18.


It is not advisable that women over 50 years old make use of this practice.


For all cases, a medical assessment is indispensable before initiating theTight Lacing practice.

After having reached the expected result, can the use of the corset be discontinued?

In most cases the floating ribs tend to remain in the position in which they were molded by the corset during the period of Tight Lacing practice. But a couple of factors such as weight gain and pregnancy my have direct influence, increasing the ribs’ curvature degree.


In this case, the corset use must be resumed so that the goal reached may be attained again.


Even if no other body alteration occurs (such as weight gain and the like), after having reached the Tight Lacing goal, we recommend the use of the corset as maintenance for at least two days of the week, until the measurements are completely stabilized.


Underbust Corsets or Waist Cinchers produced with light and comfortable fabrics are suitable models for the practice of Tight Lacing.


Underbust Corsets are the most democratic types because they encompass the whole abdomen area and for this reason they offer support for the area where generally there is higher accumulation of fat, such as the flanks, for instance.


The Waist Cinchers are recommended for women who don’t have abdominal fat accumulation. Its modelling has length reductions on the sides. Therefore, this type of corset does not offer support for these areas.

Why is it necessary to exercise regularly when I am practicing Tight Lacing?

The structure of the corset does not allow that the abdominal muscles fulfills its support role during the period when the piece is being worn. Therefore, muscle weakening becomes inevitable, since Tight Lacing demands the use of the corset for many hours in a row.


Making up for this period with abdominal exercising is essential for preserving the health of the muscles and the ideal tonus.

Is every corset produced for Tight Lacing?

All corsets are produced following the same basic principles: a customized modelling that acts by means of reductions, inner structuring through orthopedic bones and back lacing that enable adjustment. Even so, not every Corset model is suitable for Tight Lacing practice, that demands the daily use of the piece.


Overbust Corsets, for instance, are not recommended precisely because they comprise the area above the thorax, covering a greater part of the breathing system.


Underbust or Overbust Corsets in leather or plastic materials are also not recommended for they do not help in skin breathing and tend to be more rigid than fabric pieces.

How does the corset act on abdominal fat? Is it possible to reduce fat by wearing the corset? Does the corset increase localized fat?

The corset’s effect on abdominal fat is related solely to its support. A customized corset, with the suitable length, offers support for the adipose tissue and models, during its use, the whole area comprised in it. The effects offered are: flat front and sharp curves in the waistline area.


In some cases, the natural arrangement of the fat in the body may be slightly redistributed with the use of the corset, which represents no guarantee of its reduction. The same way, the use of the corset does not have the capacity of increasing localized fat.


In the case of Tight Lacing (daily use of the corset with the goal of reducing the waistline CLICK HERE AND KNOW MORE), new habits are consequently acquired, such as the obligatory practice of abdominal exercising and a diet observed through ingestion of small and frequent portions during the day. We recommend that it be carried out under a nutritionist’s guidance. Such habits have a direct reflex on body modifications and fat reduction.
