4 Things To Consider Before Sleeping In Your Corset

Whether you're thinking about taking your waist training to the next level, or you're considering a corset at night to help with an existing back problem (with your doctor's approval, of course!), there are a few things to consider and expect when you try to sleep in your corset for the first time.

Here's a list of a few of them along with some tips on how to best give it a go:

  1. Be Prepared to Sacrifice a Night or Two

Just as it took you some time to get into the swing of wearing your corset throughout the day, readjusting to how everything suddenly felt new (e.g. sitting down, reclining, bending over and driving your car), adjusting to sleeping in your corset will also take getting used to.

If you're an active sleeper (i.e. you tend to move a lot, roll over constantly, etc.), then you may find yourself waking in the middle of the night because as we all know, corsets do limit our motion to a degree.

This will pass after a night or two and you will get accustomed to the sensation and eventually sleep through the night as you normally would.

  1. Limit Water/Fluid Intake Before Bed

Some of us notice once we've begun waist training that we need to pee more frequently than before. This is no exception at bed time. So try not to have anything to drink up to an hour before you plan to go to sleep. Nothing worse than a night of interrupted sleep because you find yourself having to use the restroom.

  1. Tuck in Your Laces

Very few of us wake up in the exact same position we fall asleep. It's very natural and very common to move around at night and as such, it is a good idea to tuck your laces (you can view the various ways of doing this here). By tucking your laces in, you avoid the risk of having them come loose or worse yet, having them get all tangled up around you or tangled in your sheets.

  1. Pillows, Pillows, Pillows

Now, I love this tip[ even when I'm not sleeping in my corset because as far as I'm concerned it makes things so much more comfortable. What I'm referring to here is sleeping on your side, with one pillow pulled up nice and snug to your middle and another tucked comfortably between your knees. This helps keep your back and neck nicely aligned, reducing any potential discomfort and leading to a better night's sleep overall.

And there you have my 4 tips for having a go at sleeping in your corset.

Sweet dreams!
