12 years 3 months working as a personal trainer over across different Gym. I gave classes like Pilates, BodyJam, Bodycombat Express, Bodyattack, Bodypump, sometimes Zumba Classes and Yoga. I married to husband Gary Benstead early last year, gave birth to my first child (Emma) at 35 yr old just before Xmas 2015.
One of my friend recommended MagicFit for postpartum recovery. I started it the second week after I gave birth. I am very impressed with the product and its professional waist training service comes with it. The Operator was warm, polite and right to the point. Her professional guidance is very easy to follow.
Below are the 3 items I've bought and a full review on each
1. Latex Waist Trainer
: I used the Original Kim Kardashian Latex Waist Trainer in size M but when I start to use S and XS , I've chose the Raw Latex.
Kim Kardashian Latex Waist Trainer
Fabric & Structure: Very bright colour. Nice elastic Fabric outer lining. Latex in the middle. Cotton lining. Strong right-angle hooks for stability. Very nicely built.
Wearability: You need to hook from the top to the bottom to be able to put it on easily.
I started with a belly looks like I was still 5 months pregnant. So the "under bust" area was not as tight as around my waist.
It took me only 2 weeks and 3 days to go down to size S. I started the Raw Latex Waist Trainer.
Effectiveness: A lot of review said it is extremely hot. It is hot but not too hot. When you put it on you immediately feel like your muscles are "toned". After you body-heat heat it up, it start to have an effect. I went down one size for only 2 weeks and 3 days. I didn't breastfeed, so it wasn't breastfeeding which made my loss so much fat. When you took it off, you could actually feel your core is tiered, similar to after you done 200 sit-ups in gym.
Raw Latex Waist Trainer:
Fabric & Structure: It feels a lot different from the Original Kim Kardashian Waist Trainer. It is heavier.
Wearability: Hooks look stronger. Banner in the front is larger.
Effectiveness: It feels cooler when put it on but is faster to warm up. I had more sweat than the original Kim Kardashian Waist Trainer. To go from S to XS took me 3 weeks and 4 days. XS is the smallest ever I got into.
It does feel a bit more supportive when you wear it.
2. Sports Safe Waist Trainer
I was looking for something I could wear it under my clothes, comfortable, able to wear it all situation including while doing exercises. I chose the Sports Safe Extra Breathable waist trainer wait slimmer with Spiral Steel bones.
Fabric & Structure: Nice Fabric, feel like some very strong band (rubber band) but wide) and with bones build in it. These bonds are easily bend and return to it shape. It slim me 1.2 inches straight away when put it on. Fabric looks strong and bonds are well structured. hooks look reasonably stabable.
Wearability: The trainer is short so it doesn't show over a short top and doesn't stick out when you try to wear jeans. Comfortable - 5 star. even with the bonds. Very well structured.
3. Steel Boned Hourglass Creator Ultimate Waist Training Cincher Waist Trainer (Group B Waist Trainer with Lace Tie-back) - Short version.
I am only 162cm and I have long legs and short waist.
It is available in both white and black and I chose the black simply because it is not easy to get dirty.
Fabric & Structure: It is very well made. The lace is very strong. Fabric is very strong mesh which is very easy to breath.
Wearability: It is very short which just fit around your waist. I really like this one I got myself another one. Lace is quite long. It is easier to hide inside of the cross back after I tailored it myself.
Effectiveness: Because I want to measure the effectiveness of each trainer, I use each above trainer 1 day at a time and measure myself every morning before breakfast. Group B inner body training is one of the most effective training. You need to pick the shape when you buy waist trainers. This is by far the best out of nearly a hundred waist trainers I've tried.
