While I was drowning my sorrows for Pacquiao’s loss to Mayweather, a friend and I had a conversation about getting rid of the mommy belly. My kids are older so they aren’t good excuses for why I can’t wear a bikini. Anyway, we got to talking about “waist training” and how you can reduce your waistline with consistent use of a waist trainer or workout corset. She said she bought the Ann Chery Workout Waist Cincher and lost 2 inches around her waist in a month. She made her decision after looking at what different stars on Instagram were promoting and reading reviews on Amazon. While I’ve seen the same posts on Instagram, I wasn’t compelled to buy one until I talked to her because she was the first person I knew who had used one of these things.
After looking into it, I decided to buy the pink Ann Chery Workout Waist Cincher Vest (latex) in pink because I read that you don’t get the bunchy back fat rolls that you might get as you tighten the cincher. I was super excited to try on the waist clincher and wore it under my clothes for 7 hours at work the Friday that I received, It helps you have exceptionally great posture because it’s uncomfortable to slouch while you’re wearing it. Then on Saturday, I wore it during the Day 6 – Bikini Body Mommy Challenge 4.0 workout. It was a little bit tough to bend during the warm-up, however, it helped with posture and keeping the belly tucked in while working out.
