Hourglass Angel Active Band Waist Trainer Review!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 11th April 2016

Hello everyone!

As I mentioned in one of my Instagram posts, I have started an elaborate waist training regime. I am glad to see so many requests on my social media from you guys to share my workout routine and review my waist trainers. Today I will be reviewing the Hourglass Angel Active Band Waist Trainer by Amia.

“Waist Training” is a relatively recent phenomenon and was popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian. I was a little sceptical about hopping on the bandwagon at first but I must say, I am glad I took my leap because I have never been happier with my waist size.

I have been using a set of 3 different waist trainers to achieve my waist size and the one I am talking about today is actually a workout band.

This one by Hourglass Angel has been my best friend to workout with!

Here are some of the features of this product :

  • Latex core for firm, comfortable support
  • Cotton inner lining
  • Hook-and-eye closures
  • Flexi-boning
  • Firm compression

It works by increasing thermal activity stimulating perspiration in the midsection which slowly burns away the excess fat. It is designed to wear while working out but can also be worn under clothing. To be honest, I prefer a thinner waist trainer to wear under my clothes. This one is thick and firm so it is great to boost my workouts. If you suffer from a lot of loose, saggy fat though, you may want a firmer waist trainer under your clothes, for which this one is perfect!

However, before you jump on the trend, there are a few things to keep in mind. It should not be worn while doing ab exercises as it may constrict breathing. I love wearing mine while running and also while I do other cardio and weight exercises as it seriously holds my midsection in place and tones it while I work the rest of my body.

Also, keep in mind that this is not a magic tool. It is meant to aid your waist training routine, boost your workout and provide extra help to achieve that hourglass shape. You can definitely wear it under clothing to achieve a more streamlined appearance but the real result will be visible if you follow it with a kickass workout routine and the right diet.

Having said that, I have been working out for years but I have never had a smaller waist than I have now. I do keep a check on my diet and avoid sugar wherever I can but I have definitely seen a major result in my abdomen after I started exercising with my workout band. I like to wear mine 3-4 times a week, as many workouts as I can squeeze in seven days and I will usually wear it for about 60 minutes.

If you are someone who is just starting out, you may want to start with some high-intensity cardio workouts first. After your body is accustomed to that level of exercise, you can easily wear your waist band to step-up your hourglass game. Having a clean, nutritious diet is always step in the right direction not only for your waist size, but for your overall health as well.

To sum up, I am very happy with my workout band. If used regularly and correctly coupled with regular exercise and the right diet, you are sure to see some amazing results!

I hope you found this review helpful. Don’t forget to check out Hourglass Angel for all sorts of waist training equipment including conventional waist trainers, workout bands, corsets and other shape wear.

I have also created a glam outfit to pair with this look. I am wearing a gorgeous spiked corset from Madish The Style Bar that I got a while ago. A form-fitting black pencil skirt is what I decided on to let the corset shine in focus. Thrown over is a blazer which in my opinion, transforms the whole look into an upscale red carpet attire.

Also seen on me is a black and gold clutch from Accessorize and gold pointed Zara pumps!

OOTD – Laced & Caged

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 1st May 2015

Hello everyone!

Today’s post is the outfit I wore to the IndiBlogger – Zenfone 2 meet held on 23rd April!

G1

This lace top is actually a dress that I wore on my birthday! This is a great way to re-purpose your old iconic dresses that you’re hesitant to wear twice as a full-fledged dress. I love the full sleeved, lace back detail on this piece as it looks conservative yet sexy!

G7

I am drooling over these gladiator boots. I had been eyeing them for quite some time and bagged them earlier last month. You can see my HUGE SHOE HAUL HERE

G9

G11

G12

G13

I wore a black pencil skirt over my bodycon dress and threw on a peplum belt to add some sass and a little something extra.

G14

G15

G16

I finished the look with little gold accents and a black and gold clutch. I love how the orangy-red lips pop against this mostly black outfit. I wanted to keep the eyes gold and coppery so I skipped black and used a brown eyeliner to define the eyes. The gold and copper shadows used are by Sleek Makeup.

OOTD – Denim on Denim!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Tuesday, 21st April 2015

Hello everyone!

Today’s post is going to be about one of the biggest trends for this season – Denim!

Denim1

The casual appeal that denim has is unparalleled and it is a fabric that can be moulded to fit an evening look as well.

Denim7

Ripped jeans are one of my all time favourite pieces and a complete wardrobe must-have! This stunning pair can be styled in a multitude of ways but I wanted to create a more street-style appropriate look.

Denim9

I rolled up the hem of my jeans to flaunt these gorgeous sandals!

Denim10

I love how the denim corset adds enough curves and class to instantly uplift a monotonous white shirt-blue jeans outfit.

Denim5

My white shirt has a black collar and a black lace detail so I wanted to match my accessories to create a more cohesive outfit and pull the whole look together. These peep toe sandals look perfect when paired with this ensemble while the bag is roomy enough to fulfil all my on-the-go needs!

Denim2

Since this is a casual outfit, I kept the makeup simple. This is the makeup look I gravitate towards on a daily basis.. You can check out my post on My Everyday Makeup Look to read all about how I do it and the products involved.

I finished the look with some gold jewellery.

Details :

Black And White Ankle Strap Sandals – Zara

Ripped Jeans, Chain Necklace, Chain Bracelet, All Rings – Forever21

Black Lace Detail White Shirt – StalkBuyLove

Denim Corset, White Bag – Sarojini Nagar

On My Lips – MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in “All Fired Up”
