Genie Hour Glass Reviews
Genie Hour Glass is a waist training belt, similar to corsets and binders which have been used for centuries. Although waist training has existed for generations, it seems to have made a comeback in 2015. The Huffington Post points out that the hashtag #wasittraining has over hundreds of thousands of photos on Instagram (680,000 as of this February 2016 update). That article also describes waist training as “a scary, painful and potentially dangerous “technique” that women are inexplicably embracing in order to take a couple inches off their midsections…” Others have described it as muscle damaging and organ crushing. A 2014 Boston.com article describes compression waist garments as leading to heartburn, yeast infections, and bladder infections.
And yet, readers still want to do if Genie Hour Glass actually works.
From what we have been able to ascertain about the product, it does work generally as advertised, at least in the immediate reduction of the waistline. Strapping it on will give an immediate appearance of a smaller waistline. Does it provide a long-term benefit? The debate rages on, although experts warn about health risks of using such products.
In fact, Genie has included a disclaimer on the product page, noting:
Please use proper precautions when using this product and consult your physician to determine if there are any risks related to your health. This product is not intended for use in lieu of exercise or proper nutritional plans. Results may vary.
Genie is a heavily-advertised brand of women’s products, such as the Genie Bra and Genie Slim Jeggings.
Waist trainers in the form of corsets and other products are readily available. A quick search for corsets on Amazon yields over 50,000 results. They range in cost is anywhere from under $10 to the hundreds.
You may want to shop around, and read up on waist training, before making your decision to purchase.
Genie Hour Glass is an As Seen on TV waist trainer which acts much like a corset. It provides instant slimming, while supposedly creates a smaller waist with long-term use. Although many experts warn about potential dangers of waist training, that has not stopped the craze from taking off in 2015 and continuing into 2016.
