Q. Does the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher waist trainer make your waist smaller permanently?
A. We believe only proper diet and nutrition will permanently change your shape. However, our waist cincher is designed to increase blood flow and sweat in the abdomen. It is similar to the effects when you exercise. For example, as you do cardio you increase your blood flow and also expel water weight in the form of sweat. All these reactions help maintain a healthy weight, body shape and posture – and in turn lead to you having a smaller waist. Please note that the results are not permanent per se, and require maintenance and upkeep of good balanced healthy lifestyle.
Please see the testimonials on this topic from our customers below:
“I have been wearing my five days a week for at least 8 hours a day and see results. I have been working out here and there. But I haven't changed up my eating habits too much. However, I have noticed results in my waist and am FINALLY getting that "curve" in my waist. I absolutely LOVE this waist trainer and the quality of it. I am happy with this purchase.” (Alice F., January 12, 2017)
“I’ve lost 8 inches around my waist from clean eating and wearing the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher.” (Derique L M., March 23, 2018)
“Yes, along with proper diet and regular (at least 1 hr. 3 to 4 times a week) exercise.” (Beck C., November 21, 2015)
“I wear mines to work ( I have 2) five days a week and i have a desk cycle so I pedal during the day also. I can honestly say I see results!. I also work out 3-4 times a week and watch my diet, except for drinking wine responsibly.” (Nikki B., January 17, 2018)
“I don't think so. I have one and honestly I am not even sure if it's changing anything. I think the material is just stretching out which is why I am able to clasp it smaller. The positive, is that it is great as tummy control. Looks fabulous under dresses with the right material. Some items you can see it underneath though, so you have to be careful. I would say overall it's okay.” (Derik K., September 2, 2016)
Q. Is it important to get a breathable waist trainer for the summer? I have to get a size smaller but am worried about it being too hot to wear all summer.
A. A breathable waist cincher is more comfortable than a non-breathable one, especially during the summer days. Our waist cincher is made from breathable mesh broadcloth fabric allowing excessive heat to be emitted and absorbs sweat. The waist cincher is designed to make you sweat in the abdomen area, so if you are not very tolerant of heat and humidity during the summer, it is recommended to wear it for fewer hours. As always, remember to keep hydrated, especially during the summer.
Q. Is this for a short or long torso?
A. It is best recommended for a regular to long torso.
Q. Will this crush your inside? I’m scared.
A. There is no reason to be scared! Our Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher is designed to safely and effectively help you reduce your waist size, improve posture and provide a whole range of benefits as we discuss on our site. As recommended, you should get a size that you are comfortable wearing but is tight enough so the waist cincher can get to working on shrinking your waist size. You should be able to breathe in the waist cincher without discomfort. You also need to build up to wearing the waist cincher for longer hours once your abdomen and core adapts to the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher and gets stronger. You should get the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher that fits you well on the lightest "level" (widest hook level), but that also with time will mould your body to give you your best hour glass shape.
Q. Does this flatten your stomach?
A. One word – yes!
Q. Does this help with "back fat" too??
A. We did not design and develop the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher with this in mind. However, we are happy to hear from our customers that their back fat is also reducing! Please see a testimonial below!
“I have been using mine for a month now. I will say the back fat is decreasing. I believe it's a combination of sweating and how the garment is fitting around your back.” (Alisha J. C. · April 7, 2018)
Q. Will this weaken my muscles?
A. No, in fact we believe with the proper support that our Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher provides - your core and back muscles will be strengthened. Our cincher provides carefully balanced flexible support along with muscle strengthening rigidity. This "teaches" your body the correct stance and posture for developing your posture into a healthy and strong form. Your body subsequently learns and your muscles develop memory that realigns your body into the correct posture once you take off our Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher for the day.
Q. Will this pinch and hurt me?
A. No, unless you are choosing an incorrect size or are wearing the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher in a manner we don’t recommend. If you experience any pain or pinching, please take the waist cincher off and rest. It is important to note that we recommend easing into waist training as this is a form of exercise. Some discomfort can be expected as with any exercise and detox regime, however it should not amount to pain. It could be that you are wearing too small of a size or that your muscles and core is weak. If it is the former, please try upping a size or wear the waist trainer at a looser level of tightness. If your muscles are too sore, it may be that they are weak, but the soreness is a good sign that indicates your muscles are strengthening. In this case you can wear the cincher for shorter periods of time initially as you become more used to it and your core becomes stronger.
Q. Does this give an hourglass figure?
A. Yes, however, please do not expect the dramatic results immediately. Customers have reported that their figure has become more hourglass within a week of wearing the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher daily.
Q. Does it make you skinny?
A. We surveyed our customers to find out. Some customers say no and some say yes. Our Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher is part of a healthy lifestyle routine. It does not directly make “skinny”, but rather healthy. Customers also report that their clothes fit nicer as their waist is of healthy size now.
In a nutshell:
- First, it’s important to measure yourself accurately to choose the right size. A proper fit will not restrict your breathing or cause pain, but you will feel some discomfort as your body adapts to the waist cincher. The body should adapt gradually - forcing too small a size may result in medical complications.
- Take a measurement at the narrowest part of your waist - this will be the basis of your goal size and the size of the waist trainer that you will choose. If your waistline is under 38 inches (96.52cm), we recommend choosing a size that is 4-7 inches (10.16 - 17.78 cm) less than your waistline. If it is over 38”, choose a size that is 7-10 inches (10.16 - 25.4 cm) less than your waistline. This difference is because fat is softer than bone and muscle tissue, so larger women with higher body fat percentages can choose sizes much smaller in proportion to their waistline than smaller women.
Q. What size should I get?
A. As a general guideline, we recommend 4-7 inches (10.16 - 17.78 cm) less than your natural waistline. Please refer to the sizing chart and measure accurately to determine your best size for your waist training objectives. Also keep in mind that some customers prefer a tighter fit and snug fit, while others prefer a not so tight fit. Therefore, sizing will vary from person to person. Also, no worries and don't stress, you can always return/exchange the cincher!
Q. I am 5'2 -125 pounds, 34,27,36. What size should I get?
A. For a 27 inch (68.58 cm) waist we recommend the S as we recommend a pretty snug fit for the best results. However, you still want to be comfortable. A good balance between a tight fit and personal comfort level is key.
Q. I'm 5'8" and 163 lbs. I don't have a measuring tape so any suggestions on what size to get?
A. It is best to use a measuring tape or make a DIY one out of ribbon. Mark each inch on the ribbon. It is recommended to buy the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher not based on weight but on size measurements. For example, individual A may weigh more than individual B, however, individual A may choose a size smaller than individual B because her weight is more concentrated in the hips. It is also good to determine whether you have a narrow waist and/or large chest. A regular size may push and lift your chest, something some customers like. It very much depends on the customer and the results you are after.
Q. I am 5'8 I am in waist 50 I think. I don't know what size to get, help!
A. It is recommended to go with a 5x if your waist is 50. Please see the below testimonial by one of our customers that may be helpful.
“Hello I'm 5'9 and my waist was 42 when I started, I went with a 4x and it was a very very tight fit on the first row. After wearing for a while I was able to move down in size, but I suggest going with a 5x if your waist is a 50 :) Hope this helps. I love mine, this is a great product and works, Started with a 4x and now down to a 2x !!! Good Luck” (Michelle A, January 14, 2019)
Q. I have a size 33 inch waist, 5'5 and 185lbs ... what size should I get? Please help!
A. We would recommend a large. However, as mentioned in other responses to questions, please follow your measurements over your weight. The large should fit well. At first it'll be a little tight but your body will help stretch it out and in time it should fit perfectly.
Q. I'm a size 7 in jeans I weigh 148, what size do you recommend?
A. It is not recommended to purchase the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher based on jeans or other clothes sizes. It is important to actually measure your natural waist. This is the only way to get the correct and effective size for you. A tip is to get a measuring tape and measure 2 inches above your navel, this is generally where the narrowest part is of your waist. This is a good size to go with.
Q. How is the material on the inside?
A. The material on the inside is very similar material to the material on the outside. It is soft and breathable allowing you to wear it throughout the day and during a work out.
Q. What does 3 alloy steel bones mean on waist trainer compared to others?
A. The 3 alloy steel bones are the structural supports that run vertically down the waist cincher. It allows for effective posture support and is more aggressive than the other waist trainers on the market in speeding up the results for achieving a smaller waist. The 3 alloy steel bones work in conjunction with the 3 levels of hooks providing for superior grip and effective results.
Q. How often would I need to wear this to see results?
A. The longer you wear the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher the more dramatic the results, and the faster you will see the results. Please note that as with exercise, you need to start slowly until you break into the waist cincher. We recommend at least 2 hours per day for a week initially, then you can gradually progress to 8 hours per day after your body adapts. Please see below testimonials from our customers!
“To be honest at first, I did not think it would work. I wear it whenever I am in my home and I have gotten visible results. I would use it as often as possible. I will be ordering a smaller one this weekend, because of the inches that I have lost.” (Brit F., April 5, 2019)
“The more often you wear it the better your results. With diet and exercise it took about 4 months to lose 2 inches for me.” (Mia C., June 26, 2019)
Q. How long before you advance to the next hook (sizing)?
A. Customers have noticed the hooking to be easier in around 2 weeks. It is then recommended to “level up” and advance to the next level hook sizing.
Q. How noticeable is it under clothes?
A. It is usually not noticeable. However, it may be noticeable under very tight fitting shirts/dresses. Some of our customers choose to wear the Tiny Waist Cincher Pincher outside clothes as a stylistic piece, especially when going to the gym.
Q. Do you have to exercise with it on?
A. You do not have to exercise with this on - but you definitely can! The mesh broadcloth soft fabric is super comfortable and effective, and enhances the results of any workout – especially an ab workout!
Q. Can I exercise in this?
A. Definitely! The breathable fabric is effectively designed to absorb sweat and release excessive heat to ensure you have an epic workout!
