Waist Cinching - what is it and how to do it?
Posted on

At Amber and Indigo we love our waist cinchers. Our Lux Belt has been our best seller since it was developed back in 2015!

To shed a bit of light on how to wear a waist cincher we spoke with our designer for some style tips.

Can you tell us how you came up with the waist cincher design?

The first time I tried a corset I loved the shape it created, but I felt like I couldn't breath and it was so uncomfortable to wear. I knew from that experience that I wanted to design something that created the same hourglass shape as a corset, but did not restrict breathing or movement. From this idea the Lux Belt was born. It took a lot of work to find the right materials to hold the body in the an hourglass curve without the need for boning or lacing, but eventually after many prototypes I found the perfect combination of materials.

Is a waist cincher safe to wear?

Yes the cincher is safe to wear. It will cinch around 2-3cm (1inch) and does not compress any internal organs, it just pulls in our squishy bits a little to create the appearance of an hourglass shape and elastic belts is firm yet flexible.

What are your style tips for wearing the Lux Waist Cinching Belt?

As lingerie I like to style it with a high waist knickers and add on suspender straps and stockings. I would wear this look to a fetish event or lingerie party.

As outerwear I would wear it with a slinky black jersey dress or a black silk slip. It will cinch your waist in and create killer curves. I also saw one customer wear it with a full lace catsuit, which looked incredible.

What size should I buy?

If you are buying this because you want to wear it as a cincher to create curves, check the size chart and buy your corresponding size. If you are on the cusp of a size, go for the size down, so you can get maximum curve.

If you are more into the aesthetic of the belt and perhaps you want to wear it all night long, you could go for a size up so the belt will be comfortable and add a touch of glamour to an outfit.
