Everyone is a little bit different, here’s what you can expect in the postpartum period if you want to start waist training.
Once you’re home from the hospital and with your doctor's agreement, you can start wearing a garment that provides gentle compression and support for your abdomen. The compression of the garment helps keep swelling down while promoting tissue healing during your recovery process.
Also use this time to get a lot of rest, hydration, and nutritious food, while bonding with your newborn. Wear your waist trainer as long as it is comfortable, but take it off if you prefer to relax. You don’t need to wear it all the time.
After some time you can start wearing your waist trainer tighter and for longer periods. Wear a high compression waist trainer for just an hour or two at first per day, and then gradually add more time as you feel comfortable.
Now is also the time, if your healthcare provider gives the go-ahead, to start a gentle exercise regimen. Go for a walk with a stroller and establish a good routine. Even if you’re only wearing a waist trainer for a short period each day, your time exercising will be well spent.

If you’re practicing a daily waist training regimen, by now you should feel comfortable wearing your waist trainer for at least 8 hours a day.
