Goodbye Straight Figure, Thank You Waist Trainers!

I love beach. The sun, sands, waves and even bikinis! I almost spend my free time there and enjoy my sun-kissed skin. But, the problem here is that I have a straight figure just like a stick, no curves at all! So, what I did, I do exercise and diet but this isn’t enough. I just lose weight and excess fat but the curves are not refined. Sometimes, I wonder how these VS Angels got their perfect hourglass body figure. And of course, they use a lot of fortune and that is something out of my budget.

I’m really obsessed with waist training! Thank you for my new waist shapers! #whatsawaist

Thanks to Kim Kardashian who posted an Instagram of herself wearing a corset. As a curious, I, of course, typed in to Google for an answer; what is a corset and what for? After a few searches with the use of #waisttrainig hashtag, finally I found the answer! Kim uses it to cut down her midsection and shape it to a more defined and toned down curves.

Normally, I am a very sceptic person towards anything. However, the moment I saw it on Kim’s waist and do some research, I found myself in front of this website: and didn’t hesitate one bit! I know I shouldn’t rush and consult for more, can you blame me? I just found the answer! Anyways, I am thankful that I did.

The Waist Trainers

Probably, the first thing you’d ask yourself the moment you saw one is, what is a waist trainer and what it was for? This thing has been partially re-introduced by Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashan to lose weight. While it was really first used during the 16th century in France and Italy. Even though, there was a wide buzz about waist trainers, but there were still criticisms. So, what is a waist trainers?

A waist trainer is used to help you lose and reshape your body shape. Hence, reducing the waist and exaggerate the bust and hips. It is made of 24 steel bones that constrict and reduce and reshape your waistline.

Personal Use

On my first day of use, it is gruesome! It is a little bit of uncomfortable and almost killed me. But I did not take it off until a few hours passed and mind you, it was a sweet relief. During the first few weeks, my family and friends think I am the new Hulk. I was in a horrible mood and mostly worse than a brat having some tantrums. I should have stop but I never did. The thought of Kim and others using the same thing gives me a push. Hence, I put more efforts and do some work-outs. After a month or so, things change. I lose 4-5 inch and my torso is shaper than it used to. I feel so amazing! Now I am close to my dream hourglass figure.

A Rocking Chair Helped Me Get Sleep

I was a good sleeper. A few minutes after I lay down on the bed, I dozed off. I loved to sleep. This was one of my favorite things up until my college days. But all things changed when I got married and had a child a few years after I graduated. Sleep was becoming a tedious task for me. I found it hard to sleep at night. During the day, I found myself exhausted but I could not get to sleep a comfortable sleep, the one to which you will wake up refreshed. For me, I was able to sleep for a few minutes or hours and when I woke up, I feel worse than I did before I went to sleep.

sleepingMy Sleep Experience

In the morning, I would feel so cranky. It’s as if I did not sleep at all. I did not have enough energy to even make my morning coffee, but still I did because I had to be a good wife and prepare the things that my husband needed for his work.

With the energy I had left, I had to take care of our child who was growing to be a curious and mischievous toddler. I felt awful because I cannot enjoy doing activities with her. It was like my body just wants to lay down and take a break all day. My brain was not working properly as well. I felt like I was always in a dream.

During my child’s naptime, I still managed to stick to a routine for her. I read her a book and sing her a song so she could sleep after I gave her a bath. We would lay together in our bed as she slept beside me. While lulling her to sleep, I will be able to get a few minutes of sleep. I would feel a bit refreshed but still my energy level is not replenished. But it was enough to get me through until bedtime comes.

A shared my struggles to my husband about sleeping. I did not want to take medicines so we decided to resolve it the natural way. I planned on a bedtime routine, which starts with taking a bath before going to bed, turning off all devices in the room and keeping it dim or dark, and using two pillows for my head, in case I was not able to sleep because I had minor breathing problems.

The next day, my husband brought home two rocking chairs, one for me and for him. He bought them from He said that we could use it together as a bonding activity with our baby when he is home. The next day, I went on to my daily routine. But this time during my baby’s naptime, I lulled here to sleep in the rocking chair. To my surprise, she quickly fell asleep without any struggles. I just had to sing two or three songs for her and that was it.

As for me, I also fell sleepy and indeed, I was able to get a good nap. I was surprised how effective it was for me and my baby. From then on, we used the rocking chair every naptime because apparently, it also helped me get the sleep I needed.

How I Bought My New Cool Toilet Seat

Talking about toilet is mainly refused by most people. The main reason for this is that toilet is such a private place – what happens there, stays there. However, there shouldn’t be something ashamed of toilet seats especially when talking about its quality. I, personally, was looking for a new toilet seat and was overwhelmed by the many variants to choose from.

wc-1284608_1920A basic toilet consists of a cistern, bowl, and a toilet seat which covers the bowl. Toilet seats have a more significant role than covering the bowl – they are there for sanitary purposes. The seat is usually accompanied by a lid that masks the entire bowl. It also comes in different colors, shapes, and sizes – giving the customers the freedom to choose whatever seat would best fit their needs. I would recommend if you are looking to buy a toilet seat!

How Did I Shop For Brand New Toilet Seat?

Like I said, there are many variants of toilet seats to choose from and that made my choosing a bit hard. Of course, I want to get the best quality out of it to meet my needs as well. I’d like to share you some considerations I made when I bought my new cool toilet seat:

Choosing the right shape. There are two shapes of toilets seats: the round and oblong. There’s actually nothing much to consider in choosing between the two but your own preference. Just take a note to measure the size whatever shape it is.

Looking at the material used. When I was on the shop, I’d seen a plastic toilet seat and a wood toilet seat. Plastic toilet seats are definitely much easier to clean than the wood ones.

Slow-Close. I personally prefer a toilet seat that closes gently to avoid slamming noise. I hate it when a toilet seat pinches my fingers whenever I close it and also the annoying sound as well.

Locks in place. It is important for me that the toilet seat properly locks into place.

My new toilet seat definitely meets my needs and standard. I no longer have to worry about it anymore because the quality is indeed excellent. I shop for a toilet seat at the store, but it can also be done online. There are many online stores now in the web that offers quality toilet seats.

My Personal Advice When Buying A Toilet Seat

Aside from the pointers I have mentioned above, I’d like to give additional piece of advice for those who are also planning to get a new toilet seat. It is important that you measure the toilet seat first before buying it. This is to assure that the seller is giving you the actual measurement. After measuring, you have to know your shape as well.

Of course, the shape also has to be matched with your toilet bowl. Also, try to look for the additional features it offers. In today’s market, toilet seats have been improving and have been advancing its features. So you might want to take advantage of that as well. Above all, consider the price and the over-all quality of the product. The money you spend has to be worth the quality the toilet seat gives.
