If you're looking for a great waist trainer that you can wear anytime, anywhere, give this option from Venuzor a try. (After all, there's a reason it has a 4.1/5 rating on Amazon and over 16,000 positive reviews.) Made with a stretchy, neoprene fabric, this trainer offers a snug fit against your abdominals, making it a great option to slip under workout and street clothes alike. It also features a breathable mesh paneling that will keep you from burning up. Plus, the hook and loop closure will keep it secure all day long.
If you want to take your waist training to the next level, you might want to consider adding Along Fit's model to your cart. In addition to a waist trainer, this one comes with a sports bra with a secure zippered closure to give you maximum coverage. (In fact, it can even double as a cute workout top.) Between its neoprene material, adjustable belt, and hook and loop closure, this option is designed to do everything from improve your posture, to maximize your curves, to even keep lethargy at bay.
BEST FOR WORKOUTS
Anyone who wants to perfect their waistline during their next workout will find a lot to love about Sports Research's trainer. This option uses a thick, flexible neoprene that will move as you do—and causing you to sweat in your mid-section. Waist trainer skeptics might assume adding yet another layer to your exercise ensemble will make your workout uncomfortable, but fear not: This option has a special grid lining that wicks away moisture and keeps it from slipping or bunching mid-burpee.
BEST FOR DAILY WEAR
Go ahead, take your waist training outside of the gym (or, okay, beyond your virtual workout session) with this option from EcoWalson. This one features a cotton lining that absorbs and discharges sweat swiftly. That way, you won't have to worry about awkwardly sweating through your clothes. It also has a flexi steel bone construction underneath that will give you some extra support, but won't feel constricting. Thanks to the multiple hook and loop closures, you can adjust this trainer to your liking.
As Perfotek's trimmer belt proves, it is possible to master the art of waist training on a budget. This lightweight, adjustable belt can fit up to 42-inch waists, acting as a sauna for your belly. Decked out with neoprene, this option can offer better balance, easier breathing, improved circulation, and an on-point posture. There's also a velcro closure to ensure a snug, supportive fit. Best of all? These features are available for a fair, affordable price. Sounds like a win-win in our book.
