Fans say it's also a plus for posture: "I bought this originally for shaping but have found it to be supportive and [that it] helps with posture and lower back pain," reports a happy customer. "As I have lost weight, I have purchased three sizes. I started with an extra large and now wearing a medium. Looking forward to working toward small."
Available in sizes small through 4XL, with slight variations in price (from $22 to $23), the waist trainer has three rows of hook-and-loop closures to keep it secure. It's lightweight and flexible, allowing full range of motion, but it really makes you sweat during exercise, even when worn loosely. Expect to sweat quite a bit!
The Hoplynn Sweat Waist Trainer enhances posture, smooths the hips and back, and creates an hourglass shape when it's on the body. Many shoppers who have tried competing waist trimmers swear by the Hoplynn.
Says one such fan: "I have been wearing it for almost a week now, and I am loving the results already. It makes me sweat twice as much as before when I workout now. I've tried many waist trainers in the past and have thrown them out, but I will keep this one as long as it lasts. Great purchase."
