Waist Cincher for Postpartum: What you need to know

If you are into corsets, you should have already seen the photo Kim Kardashian posted on Instagram years ago, just hours after her baby was born.
Now you must be wondering – does waist cinching really help you get back to shape postpartum?
Here are 3 things about waist cinchers that you should know:
1. A waist cincher corrects your posture and gently brings your organs back to their proper place
For this reason, it is advisable to put on the waist cincher as soon as the baby is born so that your skin doesn’t lose its elasticity, which will help coax your muscles and organs return into place sooner.
Although not scientifically proven, do a quick search on the internet and you will see that many mums have vouched for the effectiveness of a waist cincher when it comes to post-delivery recovery.
2. A waist cincher is not a waist trainer
It is important to note the difference between a waist cincher and a waist trainer.
The main goal of a postpartum waist cincher is to correct your posture and provide enough support for your muscles to gradually move back into place. This works similarly to a belly wrap that a postpartum masseuse often recommends.
For postpartum, it is not advisable to use a traditional corset or waist trainer that might be too tight for comfort. Waist training is wearing tight corsets to shrink one’s size for cosmetic reasons. This is totally different from what a waist cincher is built for.
3. Pair a waist cincher with a proper diet and exercise regime to achieve your ideal weight
As much as we love the waist cincher, it is not a magic product that will bring you back to pre-pregnancy weight in a jiffy. A proper diet and regular exercise are still needed to help you achieve your goal.
Some bonus information:
Many mums have said that wearing waist cinchers greatly increased their confidence level and self-esteem post-delivery. I guess that’s expected because…who likes seeing lose skin?!
Another noticeable benefit is that because waist cinchers help with correcting postures, it will reduce backache or discomfort arising from poor postures.
When and how often should you wear a waist cincher post partum?
As mentioned above, you should wear it as soon as possible after delivery, and continue to wear it for at least 6-8 weeks postpartum. Many mums wear them every day and only take it off to shower.
Can a waist cincher be dangerous?
A waist cincher’s job is to help with your posture and provide enough support for your muscles to move back into place. It should be tight enough that you feel the cinch but it is not meant to be super tight fitting (as in the case of a waist trainer). If you find yourself struggling to breathe or eat with the waist cincher on, chances are it is too tight for you. A waist cincher worn correctly is not dangerous.
So where can I get a good waist cincher?

When ripped jeans and oversized jackets were ruling Hollywood, A-list celebrities like to clad themselves in full denim. Talk about denim gowns, trench coats and overalls. While it may be totally high fashion in these days or totally cheesy if done wrong, we think it’s time we put the denim back on top.

It ain’t just for bottoms you see.

Under the Corset: Undergarment Options

Most of QueenChloset’s collection are for outer wear, be it a cocktail party, dress up evening or for bridal! We have received the same few questions and one most frequently asked is —

What to Wear under the Corset?

Option #1: Go Braless

Due to the quality fabric and bust cutting built into the corset, it is not necessary to wear undergarments. 

There are a few styles where there are bra pads built into the corset, for example, the Pnina in Black or White , Lace Applique Corset and Renaissance Satin Corset. You can do without undergarments just like how you wear a wedding gown.

red2

If your corset does not have bra pads built in, you can opt not to wear one once you get used to manuvering in your corset. In fact, we encourage our customers to not wear one so that the corset can shape the body up according to the corset cutting.

Option #2: The Invisible Bra 

If you’re a first time wearer and are not too comfortable getting out of the house without a bra, you can opt to wear the Stick-on bras which are silicone based and does not have underwires, straps and rear buckle.

You can get them in most boutiques and there are many options available. Choose one without underwires and they will be perfect under a corset. They should cost around MYR30.

Option #3: The Inexpensive Method

This will involve rigging one of your existing bras. Your objective would be making sure that the underwires are out and straps are out.

Choose a bra that has a smooth surface on top (just like the “invisible” bra above), it could be a T-shirt bra made of cotton. Then snip a little at the end of the wires, then slip the wire out easily –

The reason why you will need to remove the underwires is because the bones on the corset will compress your body and against your chest once the ribbons are laced up. If the vertical bones are crushing onto bra underwires, the pressure will crush into your rib bones, and you will have difficulty breathing and then, pain. If you continue to ignore it, you will have bruising all over the underwire area.

Remove the bra straps, then you’re good to go! *winks*
