CORSET WAIST TRAINING FOR PERMANENT OR TEMPORARY RESULTS
Corset waist training is called "the corset diet" by
some, but it's really not a
fad diet -- just a fun and fashionable health-conscious
We hope you saw us with ABC-TV reporter
Deborah Roberts on an October 12, 2012
"20/20" program segment
on corset waist training. Corset waist training works
if you go about
it in a common sense, patient way, as did Reporter Roberts.
Read an amusing and fun
on her experience.
You'll need a suitable, strong,
training corset (either a Victorian or a longer-line
Edwardian from our
Fundamental Line or our
of Corsetry). We are happy to give you our personal advice
about the proper corset, fabric, and ROMANTASY

"I'm interested in purchasing my first
corset, but in my research via the internet it seems
that training is needed to gain benefit from a corset.
I am not looking for a corset to wear during everyday
life but if training is needed, I could do it during
the nighttime hours. My first question is, is there
some training needed everyday or am I able to wear a
corset occasionally?" Patty (3/28/98)
Especially for those who have questions such as the
customers above, and those who are new to the marvelous and
exciting world of wearing corsets and waist training,
ROMANTASY is pleased to provide detailed information
on how to achieve a better figure through the process known as "corset
"I'm a male, 45, and am getting interested in corset
training about 3 maybe 4 inches off my waist. Should
I corset down by this amount? I'm not interested in
trying to pass as a woman, just want to relocate some
stuff. (smile) I'm about 5'9", 145 lbs. What do you
think?" Keith (7/27/98)
Waist training is a fun and fashionable way to reach
a notable temporary reduction while corseted, or even
to reshape your figure permanently within
months. You can enhance your posture, improve
your health, reduce pesky "love handles," and slim down
by inches and/or pounds (yes -- you may
choose to accomplish one or both!). No matter whether you want
minimal change or substantial weight loss, the process
encourages better eating
habits and appreciation of quality foods, enhances self
confidence, and attracts positive public attention.
Witness what one training-corset client wrote
us on February 12, 2014:
"I am comfortable wearing my new underbust Victorian by Jill
for six hours at 28 inches measured over the corset [about 27" under the corset,
reduced down six inches from
her normal snug waist of 33"]. Tomorrow I plan on continuous
wearing at that level for 9 hours. I will take it down
another 1/2 inch this Saturday and drop back to two hours a day
(I do the next-level cinching down on the weekends so that,
if I am uncomfortable, I have less I must do in it and can bear up).
I am keeping daily records, and I even have a
ceremony I follow when putting on my corset.
Already it feels SO comfortable on meóI honestly canít
believe how comfortable it is, like a second skin.
Iíll avoid any unlady-like big sneezes [you want to minimize risk of
damaging your fabric!]
In a country where some say
that 50% of Americans are "obese", waist training
can provide a safe, effective alternative to risky and
expensive bariatric surgeries and fad diets which
usually don't work. While we certainly don't think that
health risks attendant to the issue of obesity are
amusing, we hope you agree that the graphic above right
(provided by a supportive corset enthusiast
friend) brings the point home in a ruefully amusing way.

I plan on hopefully
closing the corset by the end of my 3-month waist-
training trial, and then simply living it in daily
at that level while I take off three months and
donít worry about training at all
(although I will continue my oblique exercises and
take one day off every week, of course).
One thing I particularly love about this corset
is that the cotton-backed satin is close to the natural
color of my skin,
so I can wear it under clothes and it is
virtually undetectable. I plan on ordering after my
waist training so that I know my new
measurements. Currently, I plan on ordering
Sharonís Underbust Victorian Point. Warmly,"
"Yes, but does waist training work?"
Our answer? "It works -- if you work it!"
Take a look at the over-sized pants in our client
to the right who
followed our principles of waist training by himself,
and in four months dropped 6.5" from his waistline and
34 pounds. The process works for full and slim figures, and for those over age
18 or for the mature client. It works for both women and men.
It works for individuals who can't seem to sculpt out
their "love handles" even with liposuction or other
Results are usually seen within months of dedicated
effort, but without extreme discomfort or feelings of
deprivation. In fact, one of the primary things that
defeats our best intentions to trim down, hunger, seems
to disappear in days if not weeks! The process may--and
should--be challenging on some days, however, without
some effort expended in reaching our goals, what is
life truly worth?
The key is to start with reasonable goals and a well-fitting
custom underbust corset, then build up slowly to long,
consistent wear, coupled with a moderate waist-targeted
exercise program, and corset-friendly nutrition regime.
It is also important that you have adequate information
before commencing any training program, and a resource
in place to inquire about what physical sensations are
normal, and which suggest a change in corseting
practices (loosening the laces, shortening your hours of
wear, or taking a few days off, or any combination of
It is also important to your success that you focus on
health and above all, apply common sense. For the best
results, you should be willing and able to set waist training as
one of only two or three primary personal goals a
three-month training period that seems to work well for
our clients and students. A shorter period might
accomplish results, but it may not be long enough to
permanently modify habits that do not serve you well to
maintain a sleek figure over time. Witness what Michelle (seen left) reports after following the
program outlined in our book, starting in 2007
(left) through 2009 (right):
"I started corseting about four
years ago. I was 35-29-35 at 145 lbs. Thru sleeptime
corsetry, cardio, core resistant workouts, proper diet
and sleep and of course, hormones, I have managed to
transform my body into a feminine, healthy 36-26-36 at
135 lbs. Wearing one of ROMANTASY'S beautiful corsets
my waist drops to a comfortable 24 inches. It took two
years to achieve these permanent changes and Iíve managed to
maintain them for the last two years. Waist training
does work and the results are both healthy and beautiful.
Thanks!" Michelle (2/20/12; transgender client who
followed the program outlined in our book)
Take a look at Toni in 2005 to the far right, who in fourteen weeks of almost
daily corseting, reduced her weight from 205 pounds to
178 pounds, a 27-lb. weight loss. Toni is corseted in
both images. By early October, 2012, Toni was down to
only 166 pounds and could completely close each of the
lovely corsets in her wardrobe. Her most recent corset
in embossed navy and black leather by Sue Nice, is
shown in the two images below from 2013.

"Can I train by myself?"
Yes, however be certain that you are self-disciplined,
choose a reasonably-long period in which to try the process,
and have a well-defined program in place that has a
good chance of success. If you lack any of the above,
then you might get discouraged before you give this
fun process a chance to work.
