Storage Ideas For Your Waist Trainer

Congratulations! You have decided to go after that ever-coveted hourglass figure and are ready to start training your tummy. Waist trainer storage and proper care are essential to retaining the compression you want.

You'll want to ensure that your new waist trainer lasts as long as possible. Did you know that they will start to lose their form and efficacy if you don't take good care of them? Getting the water temperature and detergent concentration right is essential when washing your shapewear. To keep these clothing in their intended forms, you will need to launder them frequently. If you continue to wear it without washing it, the fabric will continue to get stretched out, and it won't be able to provide the same outcomes that it did in the beginning. 

Your waist trainer is regularly exposed to sweat, dirt, and heat, which can cause bacteria to grow. When that combination rubs against your skin, it can cause tension as you go about your daily life, leading to back acne and rashes. Knowing how to care for your waist trainer properly will last longer and remain effective in cinching your midline. 

 Leaving Your Waist Trainer Damp From Sweat

Since waist trainers effectively retain heat and encourage you to sweat more than usual to enhance your performance during training sessions. The added sweat eliminates extra water weight and makes even easy workouts more challenging. It effectively handles sweat due to its material. 

However, it is usually preferable to carefully wash and dry the item once you finish the day's waist training. The sweat from your workout could house bacteria and encourage the development of germs if left on surfaces overnight. If you continue using it while still dirty, it might result in rashes, skin irritation, and other problems. Owning more than one waist trainer helps eliminate these problems.

Buy More Than One

Buying more than one waist trainer is recommended to make it last longer. Make sure to give your favorite items a rest if you prefer to wear them often. Did you know that latex needs rest to keep working correctly? If you have a latex-style waist trainer, the maximum-compression material makes it so effective at slimming your waist. But the fabric needs time to "rest" and regain its elasticity to work well. Especially if you wear it all day, while you don't necessarily have to rotate your trainers every other use, you should allow latex waist trainers a rest a few days a week.

Wash Regularly

Shapewear can be somewhat inconvenient to launder, so it might be tempting to skip regular washing. But washing is necessary or the materials to shrink and maintain their best performance. Between wash cycles, you may wear your waist trainer a few times. Just be sure to go by the cleaning directions for the specific item.

Take Special Care With Latex

Even though it offers the perfect compression to train your waist, latex is easily damaged despite its strength. Your latex shapers should be hand-washed in a bucket of warm water with a gentle shampoo or baby shampoo. Thoroughly rinse, then hang dry (don't wring!). After they have dried thoroughly, keep them away from sunlight in a dark place. 

Use a Special Detergent 

Select a lingerie detergent that has been carefully developed for non-latex products. You risk damaging the shaper if you select one with bleach, softeners, alcohol, or dyes. Remember to use a gentle or baby shampoo on latex products like waist trainers. 

Allow to Thoroughly Dry

You will want to allow your waist trainer to air dry completely by laying it flat or hanging it before storing it. These garments should not go in the dryer because the heat damages the latex and alters the cincher's effectiveness.

Waist Trainer Storage 

If you like wearing waist trainers, chances are you own more than one or, at the very least, intend to in the future. Since you can't wear them all at once, storage is necessary and must be done correctly. Waist trainers are unique in that, although they are not particularly "fragile," they may easily be damaged if maintained carelessly. Think about it with the same care and concern you would with a bridal gown or suit. Why would you casually handle the brand-new cincher that you wouldn't treat these articles of clothing? 

Storing Your Waist Trainer Right After Use

Waist trainer storage is necessary, although it shouldn't be done immediately after removing it. Before putting it away right after use, lay the waist trainer flat on the dresser or hang it over a chair. Keep the lined side up in both situations and leave it there for at least a few hours, if not overnight. Why is this required? This allows the waist trainer to let moisture and odor escape and enable the fibers in the fabric to settle and restore their form.

Waist Trainer Storage After Washing

Make sure your waist trainer is completely dry before storage. It is best to keep them in the dark place away from sunlight. Keeping your waist trainer in a large lingerie drawer is ideal. They can be laid flat and stacked until their subsequent use.

Hanging a waist trainer in the closet is one of the simplest methods to keep them, particularly if you have many. To keep the cinchers  from becoming dusty, you might also place a bag over them. You can store any shapewear in one of the standard garment bags. Until you decide to put on your waist trainer again, hang the bag in the closet or keep it flat in a drawer. 

What to Avoid 

Do not just fold your waist trainer! It is also not possible to roll. Over time, these motions may damage the material. It's not a good idea to leave in your car after the gym either. Again, the heat could damage it and cause it to shrink to the point it doesn't fit anymore.
