1. Always check with your doctor before you begin waist training
This is extremely important because upon beginning any new regimen, your doctor can give you the proper/professional opinion as to whether or not it is a good idea based on your current condition.
Conditions such as scoliosis, uterine fibroids, PCOS, etc. can all pose issues if you try and waist train. Depending on your situation, conditions can either worsen or increase already existing pain to the wearer. These are the things you would want to avoid.
Check with your doctor before you begin waist training!
2. Listen to you body
"Pain" is a very loosely used term. It is possible that what you're experiencing is just discomfort. As we've mentioned before, wearing a corset helps improve posture: therefore, if you're new to wearing a corset and like most people, have got a bit of a slouch to your posture, the corset is going to help straighten out your spine. This should not be painful, but it can cause slight discomfort. Much like the soreness felt the day after beginning a new work-out regimen, you may feel a touch sore after wearing your corset for the first few days. But again, much like with exercise, this won't continue as your body adapts.
If it is just a bit of discomfort from your new waist training routine, don't be too quick to throw in the towel just yet. Rather than removing your corset, try loosening the laces a touch or until you are comfortable. Many people are extremely eager to tighten their corsets as much as possible from the first moment they take it out of its packaging, but this won't help you achieve any sort of results at a quicker rate.
Take your time. Season your corset. Increase the hours per day you wear it and the degree to which you tighten it gradually.
Waist training shouldn't be a race, but rather a lifestyle.
Love of Corsets.
