If you've been on social media lately, you've definitely seen someone using or advertising for waist trainers. The Kardashian's do it and apparently even Jessica Alba has dabbled with them.

The waist trainer is wrapped tightly around the waist and lower rib cage to provide an instantly slimming, hourglass look. If you use a weight trainer properly, it can even help you lose several inches in the waist. But is it all too good to be true?

Buzzfeed recently put waist trainers to the test, and had a few women try them out for a week... Now please keep in mind that a week is not a whole lot of time to give this product to work.

While the girls in this video didn't experience incredible results, some people swear by waist training. My advice? Although I've never personally used a waist trainer, I really suggest you do your research first. There can be a number of complications from waist training, so just make sure you know what you're doing before you get started. Better safe then sorry, right?

Have you ever used a waist trainer before? What was your experience with it? Let me know in the comment section below!
