1. It gives you a small slice of time all to yourself
Much like taking a shower, styling your hair or applying your make-up, selecting and putting on your corset for the day gives you that tiny slice of 'you' time we all appreciate. Though corsets are very easy to put on, let's be real: they do take more time and effort than throwing on your favorite jeans and t-shirt. And we think that's a great thing.
2. It improves your posture
Not only does good posture reduce any of the common back-aches we get from lifting, running errands or sitting at a desk for 8+ hours a day, good posture also increases confidence, self-awareness and bonus: proper posture increases one's resting metabolic rate by up to 10% - that's approximately 140+ extra calories burned for the average adult without any real effort beyond putting your corset on.
3. It makes things like sitting down and reclining all feel brand new
This may not sound like a big deal, but what I love about it is that it forces your brain to slow down and pay attention to what is going on at that very moment. I think we could all afford to let our brain slow down, at least a couple of times a day. It will give you something new to think about and pay attention to rather than the common to-do list most of us are mentally running through at any given time of day.
4. It may help you control your daily food intake
Though this isn't proven beyond what some corset wearer's have reported, I do believe that the simplicity of heightened self-awareness, which a corset does provide, will help make you more mindful of what you are putting in to your body. Maybe it will help you feel fuller faster, but what it will definitely do is put you in the mindset that you want to be more healthful, more mindful of your diet...and sometimes, that's enough to make the healthy and important dietary changes that deliver results.
Love of Corsets.
