I haven't tried one - however, I get the mechanics of it. It's like 2017's version of a corset.
If it's tight enough to stop you eating, it may be tight enough to give you hella heartburn.
Since it is essentially a corset, you will *technically* lose inches off the spot you're focusing on. You're not *losing* them though. Waist trainers don't get rid of fat. They just move it and shape it.

Waist trainers helped me not eat as much. I used them when I was overweight, and they made weird bulges. But they gave me a smaller waist, which I liked. I'm normal weight now, and I'd probably still have bulges if I got the right size trainer to be effective. I had to dress carefully. But they were very effective at helping me not eat. I wore them during the day at work.
The way they help you lose inches is by compressing your floating ribs. These are ribs that are not attached to your sternum, so they can be moved inward. In toward your organs. Yeah. Don't do that. Plus you need to keep using it to keep pushing those ribs in. The effect is not permanent. Not worth it for long-term "taking inches off your waist."
But as an appetite suppressant, yes. Just don't wear it all the time. Now that I'm a normal weight, I don't wear them anymore. Still losing weight, just not with those.
Good luck. Be safe.

I wear one every single day, this one to be exact .
I feel weird when I don't wear it now, and I've definitely noticed that I feel less hungry/binge less when I wear it.
I normally only take it off to shower or to switch it with my exercise one.
Honestly, as long as it's a good quality and well made trainer, you should be just fine and most likely will see some kind of progress with your waist.
Run far away from things that look like this though. 100% just for looks.

I just have no desire to wear anything extra otherwise. I have sensory issues and can barely stand bras.

I have a few and I've been told I can work out in mine but I find it difficult (then again my waist is big so everything is difficult), plus it gets sweaty but I've seen people work out in their waist trainers (ones made specifically for it)
I've noticed when working out, having something tight around my waist makes it sweat more and I'd sweat off the inches...
I feel like I need to take mine out of the closet and put it on again lol wth have I been slacking for?
*I swear I don't look as big as I weigh, well, my boobs do but...*

- i didn't have cravings nor did I overeat
- helped me to follow abc diet which I couldnt earlier
- i wasnt constipated anymore
- my waist got smaller in general but usually when I wanted immediate effects (like before my prom) i wore it for whole day and I looked amazing afterwards.
But the disadvantages tho:
-after a time of constant using it I felt sick sometimes and had stomache aches (bot too bad tho)
- my lower back hurted sometimes when I didn't wear it, but one the site I bought it they said that may happen if I don't exercise my lower back muscles for too long)
- i had gases like a motherfuvker xd idk why it wasnt bad but it happend. It might be even good for me bc I remember going to the doctors when I was little bc of stomache aches caused by too much gases inside my belly
Overall I think it was a good decision to buy it. I lost so much during 3 months of wearing it, that I needed new one bc this waist trainer was too big.
