4.Your waist trainer has lost its elasticity:
If you are already using your waist trainer regularly, after a few months you will feel that it’s losing its elasticity and does not fit you as tightly as it used to. This is the time when you will need to get rid of it and order a new one. Even with good care, you cannot expect a waist trainer especially one made with latex to serve you for life. It will eventually wear out when it does not feel tight even on the tightest setting and will need a replacement.

If you have only one waist trainer you will find it difficult to take out the time to wash it and let it dry. Since you have to air dry after hand-washing it, your waist trainer will take a good amount of time to dry completely during which time you will not be able to waist train. It’s better to keep at least two waist trainers so that you can use one while the other is drying.
