Anyone seen changes in their jiggly belly after using a waist cincher for a long duration? How long did you use it? Do post before & after pictures if possible. Thank you. :)

    And these things can weaken both core and back muscles causing more problems.

    never bought one. i wouldnt want my undergarments to impact my breathing
    i reckon your belly will be flatter when you wear it, and then not flat when you take it off.

    Agree it's great as shapewear. With one on, I have an awesome waist in tight t-shirts. Without it, what's left of my fat, is all in my belly and soft, so I don't like how that looks.

    I use one if I have somewhere I want to wear a nice dress and not have my belly stick out. That's about it.

    Yup, I agree with all above...great for a nite out with a pretty dress, but don't expect dramatic, lasting weight loss/fat loss results.

    Most are a waste of time, some do help blood circulation, contractions, and sweating(mainly liquids burned), but very few actually work. If you want a tighter, firmer core you'll have to work on it; in the case you're concerned about, mainly diet restrictions and transverse abdominous exercises.

    My sister did with her weight cincher sport vest. She lost 6 inches of her stomach back and love handles are gone all in 3 months. I will have her post her pictures of her before and after and she has kept it off. I think it just varies from person to person and which one you buy as far as quality

    The inches were probably from dangerously rearranging her organs. A cincher can't burn fat.

    I think they work since youre not able to eat your normal portion (because that thing is so darn tight) and so you lose weight

    Ohh.. Thanks a lot for the replies! Dropped the idea! Maybe I'll consider wearing it with dresses. That's about it! :)

    If portion control is a challenge for you, the waist cincher will help because it limits the amount of space your stomach can expand when you eat. It helps you feel full on less food and makes you extremely uncomfortable if you eat too much.

    Could it at least help with skin tightening in that the stomach isn't being pulled down as much by gravity (assuming there is loose skin to tighten). Same way a bra provides support?

    No....
    The only thing that determines skin sag is genetics and no bra stops drooping if those puppies are gonna sag they're gonna sag and all a bra does is hold them up

    That is ridiculous advice to give anyone. Do you know that people have died of asphyxiation wearing these things?
