We often get asked “What is the difference between a waist cincher, latex waist cincher/trainer and a waist training corset (steel boned corset precisely)?”
Well we are going to address all those questions in this post and even give a little more on how all these cincher/trainers can be combined or used together to achieve maximum result in your waist training goal.
First let’s say a cincher is a general term used to identify any garment that is designed to shape the body and give a more enhanced appearance. A waist Cincher is meant to target the waist section specifically, it will shave one or two inches off from your waistline while you are wearing it. Usually, a waist cincher is designed to provide a slimming effect underneath your clothes. Cinchers are mostly made from a combination of nylon and latex or spandex AND some with plastic boning, but recommended is spiral steel boning (Our next post will discuss why spiral steel boning is recommended). If your weight is more around your tummy area, cinchers can help give you a reduced waistline for sure, but not to the point of real hourglass curves like a steel boned corset.

You should see the difference from how latex cincher holds and the grip from Jean steel boned corset resulting to a more hourglass shape. But here is what makes a cincher preferable to a corset, let’s say a well-designed latex waist cincher with 9 spiral steel which is like the maximum steel you can have in latex or other kinds of cinchers will give you all the flexibility you need while wearing it, unlike the corset. Good waist training corsets are designed with 18-28 Steel and materials mostly used in designing them ranges from leather, spandex, and polyester to satin etc. With the number of steel used in designing corsets, it is impossible get the same level of flexibility latex or regular cinchers will give, so a corset is actually a bit inconveniencing.
Though Steel boned corsets are a bit inconveniencing, they surely give AMAZING curves and will instantly take three to four (or more) inches off your waistline. Corsets also re-shape or re-mould your body over time to the shape of the particular corset you are using to waist train (like wearing braces to give the teeth direction or shape). But you must know that wearing corsets requires lots of patience and determination. In all, with proper dedication, determination and patience; waist training will give you a smaller waist even when you are not wearing the corset or you take it off plus little corset maintenance will keep the waist just that way without having increase later.
Just to clarify a little between latex cincher and other regular cinchers. Latex is designed to give instant control and a reduced waist when wearing it by burning fat over time. Other cinchers are made to only give you that instant control, but will not reduce your waist permanently over time that means when you wear the cincher, your waist is small and when you take it off it goes back. This is also how the full body shapers work. The good thing about body shapers and cinchers generally is that they are not visible under your clothes. Some people call them smootheners because the can hide perfectly in clothes, unlike Corsets that are bulkier and cannot easily hide underneath clothes.
Finally, corsets certainly can’t be worn to exercise or work out, but a cincher can be worn. Which is another area where you might benefit from cinchers(latex). They are easy to sleep in or wear overnight, and still provide some support and shaping like the corset
There are lots of products with so many differences and uses, sometimes they get one confused! Hope this help clarify this re-occurring FAQ. We would love to hear your feedback, please leave comments on areas we couldn’t discuss at this time.
