How to wear a waist cincher?
In the beginning, waist trainers can be a little difficult to put on. You might need assistance the first couple of times before you get a hang of it and are able to do it yourself. If it has a ‘hook and eye’ closure start by closing the hooks from the bottom of the garment move your way up.

A word for both, corset and cincher, users
Do not push yourself to extremes from the very beginning. The first time you put it on; wear it for no more than one to two hours a day.
