Ann Chery Women’s Faja Deportiva Workout Waist Cincher Review
The Ann Chery Woman’s Faja Deportiva Workout Waist Cincher is a South American faja-style waist cincher. “Faja” means belt or sash, which denotes how easy it is to use and how formfitting it is.
Faja’s are a South American style of waist cincher or corset that are designed to give you an immediate hourglass effect. They work by gently compressing your waist to achieve that desirable, sexy look that is just as lauded now as it was in our grandmothers’ day.
Designed for workouts
This is a workout waist cincher, which means it’s specifically designed not only to accommodate your workout, but enhance it. It supports your back, which is crucial for women who have large breasts or back issues, because they often have pain, especially during activity. Also, you’ll sweat more while using your workout cincher, which means you’ll reduce bloat and water weight from eating too many carbs or salty foods.
One of the most important ways the Ann Chery waist cincher promotes a better workout is through the thermogenic effect. The thermogenic effect is achieved when the temperature in the center of your body rises; this higher heat level ups your metabolism and burns more calories. When you burn enough calories, your body will release the fat it was storing and use it as energy instead. This means, when part of a healthy lifestyle, waist cinchers can contribute to lasting fat loss, which in turn will help you shed pounds.
Flexible boning keeps your waist cincher in place; more importantly, it allows you to be more active than the stiff boning of more primitive waist cinchers.
First impression of the Ann Chery Women’s Faja Deportiva Workout Waist Cincher
The first thing I noticed about the Faja Deportiva cincher is that it immediately took inches off my waist—nearly three. The fit was a bit snug, but not uncomfortable. Since I’m eating a healthy diet and exercising to lose weight, I wanted that snug fit for when I become smaller. Also, it helped me workup a healthy sweat during my morning run and I noticed a lot less backpain than I normally have.
What to like:
- The Ann Chery waist cincher is hand washable, so you and your cincher can be nice and clean, unlike some other cinchers that don’t hold up to even light cleaning
- Two rows of hook and eye closure to achieve a great fit
- Latex core provides an amazing fit
- Cotton interior and exterior are comfortable
- Flexible boning
- Promotes thermogenic effect, boosting calorie burn
What to consider:
The main con about this one is that it runs small, so you have to size up. They do, however, go up to a 3XL which accommodates a waist up to 35 inches; if you fall under that max, you’ll be fine, even if sizing up may feel a little demoralizing. But remember, arbitrary women’s underwear sizing means nothing. It’s how you feel and if you’re happy with your looks that matters!
