3. Take it off
In order to achieve the desired results, you should wear the corset consistently. However, this does not mean that you start by wearing the corset for a full eight hours. Begin with baby steps like an hour then work your way up to longer periods.

You can also wear the corset to the gym to increase thermo-genic activities.
4. Be patient.
Each body is different and the progress of reshaping the body using corsets depends on an individual’s core density, distance between the rib cage and the pelvic bone, shape and quality of the garment, flexibility of the cartilage as well as the consistency of the wear. One person might need to wear it for over six months before noticing any changes while another may start to notice changes on the third month.
Regardless of how long it takes, remain patient and keep in mind that none surgical body modifications require a lot of time.
5. Invest in quality corsets and the right fit.
As stated above, the quality of the corset determines one’s progress. Therefore, look for a well-constructed corset that fits well so that it applies the pressure evenly along the waist instead of flaring or rubbing at the hips or ribs.
A corset that fits well is more effective and reduces the risk of body harm that is caused by wearing a corset that is too tight around the abdomen.
To ensure that you get the right size, take your waist measurement first thing in the morning as you are not affected by abdominal bloat from eating.
