What is a Faja (Waist Trainer)?

The FAJA, Spanish for ‘girdle’, originated in Colombia, one of the planet’s cosmetic surgery hubs.  Following surgery, doctors prescribe its use to reduce swelling and make sure affected skin tightens correctly on their patients. However, the medical use extended to the general female population as Colombian women realized the faja could also serve to accentuate their natural curves.

What are the benefits of wearing a Sculpt touch FAJA?

The Faja is used to help achieve that “coke bottle” shape. Wearing a Colombian Faja gradually moves the organs in the body down in a safe way while also bringing the bottom or “floating” ribs in and closer together resulting in a smaller waist. In addition, the faja strengthens your posture and lower back muscles, helps to reduce appetite and when worn while working out can help to burn fat with a thermogenic effect on the abdomen.

Is wearing a Sculpt Touch FAJA safe, will it damage my organs?

Yes wearing a FAJA is safe. No it will not damage your organs when used correctly. There are a lot of myths out there about waist training. sculpttouch only promotes safe waist training. The fact of the matter is when wearing a faja there is a shifting of the organs that takes place. We have designed our sizing guidelines so that the shifting takes place gradually. You do not squeeze into a faja that is too small for you. Trying to fit into a size too small can cause the garment to rip apart, long before any damage is done to your organs or any cracking of the ribs takes place. Fajas are often confused with a process that is known as tight lacing. Tight lacing is done with steel boned corsets that you are tied into as tight as possible. That is completely different than our product. The gradual shifting of the organs is completely safe; our bodies are designed to do so (very similar to what takes place during pregnancy). A woman's organs will shift to accommodate the growing uterus over a 9 month period. When we gain weight and have a larger abdominal cavity, our organs will also shift to occupy the larger space. Same goes with waist training! When the space becomes smaller, the organs will shift accordingly to fit within the space allotted.
