What is the right waist- cincher for me?

Perhaps one of the most common questions we get thru emails, walk-ins, and people who simply know they want to start waist training but don’t know where to start.

One of the first things to consider is your purpose.  What is the need for a waist- cincher? Is it for weight-loss, pregnancy, post- pregnancy, post- surgical, or simply rock it for a night out with your favorite black dress? Defining the need is the most important, as each model that we carry is meant for a specific need.

As the saying goes “As two peas in a pod” a reference used to convey that two things are just like each other, waist cinchers may look identical, but each of our garments are unique in their own way full of botanical ingredients that help target each client needs.

While all the products contain vitamin E, Seaweed, Ginkgo Biloba, and other botanical ingredients what makes the difference is the use for the garment. The next thing to consider is the type of fabric you want in order to achieve your goals. We offer both high and normal compression, high compression being the one recommended for various occasions. For instance, if you underwent a plastic surgery, then high compression would help as the garment offers anti- inflammatory properties and will help your healing process. Other reasons people consider high compression garments are because of its textile and how nicely they compress your curves, leaving your body with a sculpted look :0 Move over, Kim K.

Normal compression is great for every day wear, if you are looking to get a “Light – Coverage” for wearing underneath work attire, or you simply want to test out the products without making the expense of a high compression one, then definitely opt in for this one. (Price- wise, there is a $30 dollar difference between high and normal compression)

Grips or no grips? While if you simply type in on your search bar: waist cincher for me, The best way to narrow it down is to know you have options just like a candy store. Along with the grip option, it’s great to also mention we carry a zipper alternative for the customers who want to have more time in the morning to get ready, and less time fighting with the grip-work; hehe.

Along with having an idea of the compression preference and closure, it’s also good to know how long you want your waist cincher. Do you want it to be knee length, same length as your jeans? Or a garment that is discreet enough to be as short as your intimate wear? We would recommend considering for what will you  be using the garments for.

Lastly, keep an open mind that if you are considering the waist garment as recommended by a doctor, it’s good to know what you like, your price budget, but also doctor’s always know best.

Clean eating 101- The Simple way!

Wanting to meal prep but don’t know where to start? You see all the cute Pinterest boards, green juices and the packed containers and it seems so clean, and organized- right? We decided to make a short and sweet article that hopefully after reading, you can take on meal prepping in baby steps.

The first thing you need to do before going grocery shopping and buying any new containers, is asking yourself, how many meals will you be making? Will you be only prepping lunch for all three?

After knowing how many meals you will be making, you can sort out the types of foods in categories you will be purchasing, we narrowed it down to three categories:

  1. Protein: Chicken breast, ground beef, ham, turkey, soy products, dairy, fish (with fish you must be careful it can’t be in the fridge for too long) Remember, the four-day rule (LOL)
  2. Carbohydrates: Now when it comes to carbohydrates, there’s two types: Simple and Complex. Simple carbohydrates are fruits, vegetables, sugar, honey etc. Then, complex carbohydrates:
    vegetables, corn, green peas, cereals, pasta, rice, beans, and many more.
  3. Fats: Now there’s all kinds of foods we could list for fats, but since we are focusing on clean eating, some are better than others. We recommend adding seeds, nuts, avocados, almonds, peanut butter, almond butter, olive oil, coconut oil.

Ok great, now what meals can I make?

Next up,  make a whole week list of possible meals you know will be fitting. Since you’re just getting started set small goals on your meal prep. Changes start small, so if you think you can only meal prep your lunches and snacks, that’s ok too!  Another thing to have in mind is your calorie and doctor recommendations. If you are starting a weight- loss journey and you know ahead of time what foods your doctor said to avoid, then add these to your stay away list.

And now, the fun part:

Keeping in mind proteins, carbohydrates and healthy fats, take any calendar sheet and write out under each day a possible meal you’d like. Below are some ideas for different times of the day.

For example, Monday: Chicken breast, boiled egg whites, cucumbers, and tomatoes. (lunch)

Tuesday: Grilled chicken salad wrapped in lettuce (dinner)

Wednesday: cheddar slices folded up pepperoni, celery and boiled eggs. (snack)

Thursday: Steak with potatoes and broccoli (lunch)

Friday: Egg and avocado bowl (breakfast)

Saturday: Breakfast Bowl: Pick a carb you’re familiar with, (oatmeal) and fruits, (blueberries, strawberries, mango) and lastly throw In some coconut flakes, ta-dah!

Sunday: Honey garlic shrimp, brown rice and broccoli.

After you have an idea of what to make, feel free to add more meals, we find that the more you plan your meals on paper, the more excited you get to try more recipes for upcoming weeks.

We hope you found this article helpful, now you’re ready to take next step- go grocery shopping! We recommend printing this article, and bringing your meal calendar along, that way you’re not driven to the cookies aisle unconsciously; just saying.
