Corset training, waist training, or waist reduction is a form of body modification which is achieved by prolonged periods wearing an hourglass corset. Waist reduction, sometimes called "tightlacing," is often used by women who are post-pregnancy or by women involved in BDSM.
No structural features distinguish a modern waist training corset from a corset worn as an external garment for special occasions. Training corsets are always made from strong fabric (or leather) and with relatively inflexible boning (not all corsets are strong enough to mold a body). A training corset is designed to be used every day, and will probably be hidden under clothing, so it is likely that practical aspects (comfort, ease of laundering, etc.) will have been stressed in its construction over aesthetic ones.
Any style of corset can be used for waist training, although some styles
are more popular and suitable than others. However, as the corsets
necessary to maintain a body modification are no less rigid than those
first worn to achieve the modification, there is no effective structural
difference between corsets worn during training and those worn once the
desired body shape is achieved. The term "training corset" can,
therefore, be used for any corset worn by somebody undertaking training.
