They do whilst you're wearing it - although the flab needs to go somewhere, so it goes under the trainer or above it, it doesn't disappear. It also squishes your organs, though, and ruins your posture. Your waist won't actually "train" to look slimmer.

It doesn't even really work as an incentive to eat less because you see the bulge and think a magnum won't hurt that much.

Biologically I knew this would be the case but I tried it anyway. My doctor laughed. And then made me promise to stop wearing it.

In a word- no.

Waist trainer = corset? Just a fancy new name for them?

They sort of do.
A proper waist training corset and regime will semipermanently reduce your waist. But it requires a massive amount t of dedication and usually a fairly expensive, custom made corset.

Check out Lucy's corsets on you tube.
