How old is too old to start corseting? How young is too young to start waist training?

This issue is still a tricky subject. Since waist training is not an incredibly mainstream activity, no laws in any country has put down a regulation concerning a ‘safe’ age for someone to wear a corset. However, there are some facts to be considered while engaging in this debate.

First of all, legal outlooks

Just like tattoo, piercing etc. waist training is a form of body modification. Therefore, it should more or less follow the same rules and guidelines as other forms of body modification. In North America for example, most legal tattoo and piercing parlors require to be at least of 18 years old. This age is assumed to be the one at which you’re considered as adult and fully responsible for your own actions and what you do with your body. Waist training should be treated the same way whenever somebody would like to engage in it. If you’re under the age of 18, you’d have to go to your legal guardians for permission. In a general level, this is to protect all parties involved:

It provides protection for your body from anything going awry during waist training and from any accidental injury that may occur because of ignorance and immaturity.

It’s also protect your parents from being blamed for neglecting your well-being, should anything happen to you.

Physiological growth

Well, some of you state “Why sould I wait until am 18? After all, I’m so mature for my age and I have stopped growing in height etc.”

Unfortunately, it is not all about age or how mature you are. It doesn’t matter.  It has nothing to do with how old you were when you started your period. It has to do with your skeleton. Human skeleton is essentially made of cartilage,  and this one is much more softer and weaker than bones.

Generally, the human body doesn’t finish developing until you reach your early 20s or late. As the body is almost fully developed at that age, it is then recommended for women to engage in waist training by their 20s.

Furthermore, remember these are just recommendations and before you start waist training, you should always consult your doctor, regardless of your age, to check whether your body and your health could afford the wearing of a waist cincher.

In conclusion, like most things when it comes to Waist training, is that it differs from a person to one another. Waist training can take a physical and mental toll on a person, so a person’s maturity, responsibility plays a big role when answering this question.
