Even though they are known as miracle-accessories, the reality is that waist trimmers are effective under certain conditions only. Also, it is important to highlight that a waist trimmers’ effect are not the same on everybody.

What should I expect from a waist trimmer?

When buying a trimmer belt, you certainly do it because you want to lose belly fat or because you are motivated to reshape your waist. Actually, this is what waist trimmers were made for, but that does not mean that you don’t have to make any effort at all. Before buying it, you should think about whether or not you are willing to work out, exercise, go jogging every second day or practice any other type of sports. In case you are planning to wear a waist trimmer while doing nothing, there is no much guaranty that results will start to appear.

Most waist trimmers are made of neoprene and help increase your body temperature, especially in the belly area. This means that you will sweat more than you did before using a waist trimmer. Sweating is highly recommended when planning to lose weight, but that means that you have to exercise. If you do and you are willing to consume healthy foods, results will start showing in a few weeks.

How do I know which waist trimmer is the best for me?

As you are probably aware, there are plenty of waist trimmer models available on today’s market. Some of them are designed to be worn by men, some by women and some are unisex. Even though you find one that is unisex, it does not mean that it is perfect. It is extremely important that you try it on and see if it fits you. The waist trimmer should cover your entire belly and the upper side of your abdomen, if that’s where the fat is present. If you only want to get rid of the fat of the lower abdomen, then a smaller coverage is ok, too.

A high quality waist trimmer should be adjustable, should be thick enough to be able to increase your body temperature and stable enough not to slip. Also, it should be lightweight despite of its thickness and its fabric should be soft and comfortable. It should include a carrying bag and should have a sturdy closure. Make sure that you will try it on your skin, not your clothes and be aware that neoprene is not ideal for people with sensitive skin. Therefore, if your skin feels itchy or red marks start showing on your skin right after wearing it, the fabric is probably not suitable for you. Irritations have been discovered by many after wearing poor quality waist trimmers, which is why you should be careful when buying one.
