Waist Trainers' Size Chart


Step #1: Take Your Measurements


Tip: Measure right at your bra line. Make sure you measure parallel to the ground.

Natural Waist

Tip: Measure where you bend side to side. Usually about 1" above your belly button.

Upper Hip

Tip: Measure at or just below your hip bone. Just above where you bend when you sit.

Torso Length

Tip: Sit in a chair, place the measuring tape centered under your breast and extend the tape to the top of your thigh. Be sure to sit straight. (video)

Step #2: Determine Your Size & Style

A general waist trainer sizing guideline is as follows: If your natural waist (where you bend side to side) is under 38” select a waist trainer that is 4-7 inches smaller than your natural waist. If your natural waist is over 38” select a corset 7-10 inches smaller than your natural waist.

As a rule of thumb, we have our customers order 4-7 inches below their natural waist size. So if you have a 29″ waist, you would order a size 24 or Size small waist trainer.

Other Factors to Consider

  • Wearing a waist trainer for fashion or back support? We recommend only 3-5 inches smaller than your natural waist.
  • New to waist training? Err on the side of too big and work your way into a smaller trainer.
  • Torso length: If you are tall and have lots of extra "fluff," you may find 8-10 inches is not too extreme a reduction because you have more area to spread your soft tissue.
  • Your "squish" factor: Lean muscle is not going to have as much give as soft tissue. The more "give" you have in your waist, the more aggressive you can be with your silhouette level. Are you firm or squishy?
