The Difference Between Cinchers and Steel Boned Corsets

                          Shaping, Slimming, or Smoothing?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Hello My Dear Readers! We get asked all the time “What’s the difference

   between a waist cincher and a steel boned corset?” The quick answer is 

  “LOTS!” I am going to try an offer a little more detail today as to the differen

   ces of these products, and also how you might want them both to work toge

   ther towards  your goals.

                                                                                                                                                       Waist cinchers, which is a term used to define those shaping garments that

   target the abdomen specifically. That is where the similarity to corsets ends. A  

   waist cincher will usually shave an inch or two from your waistline while you are

   wearing it and is designed to provide a slimming affect underneath your clothes.


   Most cinchers are made from a combination of nylon and latex or spandex, some

with plastic boning. If you carry your weight in your tummy, they can help give you more of

 a waistline for sure-but not the hourglass curves a steel boned corset will give you.


 Steel boned corsets are designed to not only give you AMAZING curves, 

 but will instantly take three, four even six-seven (or more) inches off 

instantly (depending on how much “fluff” you have). Corsets also will 

help you to re-shape your body overtime (like braces for your teeth or 

tapers to stretch earlobe piercings-I personally find corsets to be less 

invasive than either of those options-but you get the idea). Proper 

dedication and patience to waist training will give you a smaller waist 

even without your corset on, and a little corset maintenance will keep it 

                     that way.


   Many women find they want to waist train almost around the clock, 

but sleeping in a steel boned corset is not for everyone-and you cer

tainly shouldn’t work out in one! That is where you might benefit from 

both products. Cinchers are more comfortable to sleep in and work 

out in, but still provide some support and shaping. Corsets are bulkier 

as well, and if you are looking to for some slimming help underneath a

 fitted top or dress, the cincher is easier to hide (as it is meant for that).

 As I said at the start of this blog, you will not achieve the same results 

with a cincher, but it will shave a little (and bring in your waist if you carry 

excess weight in your tummy).


      Another coupling of these two products come 

from trying to reduce or eliminate that dreaded “back bulge” that can arise from 

wearing some styles of corsets. SC80011J sits high on the back (which usually 

prevents any bulge), but not everyone can wear a longline underbust. For women 

with average to short torsos, the SC88051C or SC88051H work better, but can 

sometimes leave an unwantedback bulge between the corset and the bra line. 

Wearing a high-backed cincher or other bodybriefer form of shapewear under

 your corset will help.

  So many products with so many different uses..it can make your head spin! Ihope 

 this clears up at least this one FAQ for many of you. We would love to hear your 

                                                           experiences and advice on cinchers and corsets below in the comments.
