Side effects of sleeping in a waist trainer:
1) You will feel like you are going to fall asleep at any moment while wearing one.
If you have trouble falling asleep, it’s probably because your body doesn’t want to go through the discomfort of lying down all night. Your brain is still trying to recover from the previous day’s activities so it wants to rest. The longer you sleep in one position, the worse your insomnia becomes.
2) When you wake up, you may not remember anything that happened during the night.
This happens because your mind was too tired to concentrate on what just occurred. You might even forget if you were dreaming or awake. A good way to avoid forgetting things is to take a shower right after sleeping. Then again, if you don’t feel like doing such thing, then just get out of bed and walk around naked until morning when you’re ready to start all over again!
3) You might experience some lightheadedness.
This is due to the fact that your blood pressure drops. If you have been drinking alcohol, it could cause you to become dizzy. Don’t drink too much though; you’ll only end up hurting yourself more than helping yourself!
4) Some people say they feel like their heart is going to explode when they put on a waist trainer for the first time.
They usually get nauseous and vomit after putting them on. The only way to prevent this is by slowly building up the duration you wear it. If you’re one of the unfortunate few who get nauseous, don’t continue wearing the corset. You don’t want to risk vomiting and choking to death.
5) You will sweat like a pig!
This is one of the main reasons why most people wear them in the first place. It’s not just any kind of sweat, but rather “good” sweat.
