The Emotional and Physical Health Benefits of Wearing a Girdle

- Advertisement -

When you first consider wearing a panty girdle, you might be thinking of benefits such as a smaller waist size, the elimination of unwanted muffin tops, or the evidence of extra weight. These are just a few of the reasons that men and women choose to wear a girdle.

These are some great reasons to purchase and wear a girdle, but did you know that there are some potential health benefits as well? These benefits take you well beyond the initial feelings of “vanity” that make you doubt whether you should indulge in that little splurge. Consider the many reasons that other women (and plenty of men) love their girdles:

Wearing a Girdle

A Supportive Hug

Some women feel that their panty girdle provides comfortable pressure that does more than support their figure. These women have found that the deep pressure provided by the girdle is similar to the therapy sometimes provided by occupational therapists. In these cases, the panty girdles provide a naturally comforting sensation, reducing anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. This supportive hug can heal emotions as well as it supports healing following surgery.

A Source of Back Support

Those panty girdles that reach up the back just a little bit can provide lumbar support and may prevent back injuries. If you find this a bit hard to believe, consider the posture that you are using right now. An undergarment that encourages good posture has the potential of reducing, not only back injuries, but the following:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Back pain due to injuries
  • Pain from scoliosis
  • Pressure on knees and feet due to poor posture
  • Tension in the neck and shoulders

Both men and women wear supportive girdles to provide back support and improve posture as well as creating an attractive physique.

Abdominal Support

In much the same way that the girdle provides support to the back, and the many benefits of proper back support, it can also provide support for the abdomen. Sometimes girdles are recommended to men and women who are recovering from surgery because of these supportive qualities. This targeted support can also aid proper body maintenance and provide support for the bust.

An Effective Weight Loss Aid

The key word here is “aid”. The panty girdle shouldn’t be used in place of the diet or exercise that you’ve worked out with your doctor. Having said this, the girdle can help you to control your appetite, reduce your serving size, and serve as a general reminder of weight loss goals. For some individuals, the girdle helps them to picture successful weight loss – increasing their belief in success and strengthening their motivation.

Today there are many weight loss programs that incorporate the use of a girdle to improve the overall success of other weight loss tools.

Confidence Boosting

You can’t deny that when you feel good about yourself, everything else seems to fall into place. If you think that you look good, you are more likely to tackle harder tasks, get the raise you deserve, or approach another person confidently.

Now that you know some of the most common benefits of wearing a panty girdle, you should feel no qualms in making a small investment in yourself. You might appreciate the emotional and physical health benefits of wearing the girdle even more than you enjoy your slimmer physique.

This is a really great article and so true there are really serious health benefits to daily wearing a decent vintage girdle every day. I found this out for myself personally about 5 years ago.

My experience are very much the same. I started wearing a girdle a few years ago when my wife recommended it to help me reduce my weight. Although it cost me quite an effort to follow her advice I did it and started wearing a girdle. The first days were terrible. I found the girdle restricting and uncomfortable. But mey wife inisisted. And after a few days things changed. I got accustomed to the girdle. Now, five years later, I still wear a girdle every day. I like the support and I feel energized in it. I switched from hwpg… Read more »

Im a lifelong slim , single crossdresser and i am completely addicted to girdles. I have over 300 different girdles in my collection and i wear them every day. They are great for my back…but I also appreciatethe feminizing aspect of it..as well as the discipline. When im lucky…around the house i wear them with slips, hose, highheels and dresses. Id make a good 1950s wife. IWish there were more women who appreciated males in girdles.

This is what usually happens. You try a girdle for the firtst time. It may be tight and you feel uncomfortable. But you feel the urge to don a girdle again. From my own experience I can say that once you tried a girdle you are hooked for life. What makes girdle wearing such a fantastic experience? Is it the tightness? A girdle gives support and does a lot for ones back. But I don´t think that this is the reason. However, since my wife introduced me to girdles a few years ago, I wear one almost every day. Without… Read more »

I agree that at first putting on a girdle was somewhat uncomfortable, it does take getting use to, in a sense girdle training, but it really is well worth it. In my case I was very lucky to work closely with a professional corsetiere. She told me that YES you can become girdle dependent, but being girdle daily is actually quite benedical it just takes a little time. To become hooked for life it does take going through a little training. First you need to be fitted in the right kind of girdle for your life style and the work… Read more »

Tom, I agree. Although it takes some time getting used to girdle wearing it is worthwhile. Donning a girdle first thing in the morning becomes a routine. After some time I felt that I needed my girdle. If I did not wear one I missed the tightness and support. My wife took me to a store where I was fitted by a professional saleslady. I learned about the term “girdle dependency” and can say: yes, I am girdle dependent. But there are some benefits of being girdled daily.

Klaus – sadly there is a fair amount of misinformation and propaganda concerning girdles. I believe back during the Golden Age of Girldes that a girdle was back in the 1940ties, 50ties and 60ties a woman best kept secret. The benefits of daily being in a decent vintage girdle are definitly there. Males along with females I believe from my own personal experience can also benefit for being girdle daily as you and I now know. I always wondered if as a male I could become girdle or corset dependent like I saw in my house where I grew up… Read more »

My experiment is a little bit different of yours. When I have found the properly girdle I enjoyed to wore them. I enjoyed the support of girdle from the first time. I felt the more energy of the relaxed stomach muscles from the first time. The only difficulty was the properly girdle found. I think that the properly girdle comfortable from the beginning. I wore girdle from two years constantly. I agree that the girdle wearing is a beneficial thing.

What really surprised me once I was able to keep my stomach muscles relaxed and just depend completly on a girdle to support my posture, you really do experience a dramatic surge in energy, Once you expeience keeping your stomach muscles relaxed and you are completly supported by a girdle after a few weeks you do become quite addicted to being in a girdle, but you do not mind you find you really do love the benefits a girdle offers all day. It really is amazing. My advise do not knock wearing a vintage girdle till you try it, you… Read more »

Tom, like you I was used to have my mother and my older sister around always girdled. When my mother came home from work she changed but she would never do without her girdle. During the sixties every women wore a girdle every day. No other way to keep your stockings in place. In the seventies when pantyhose was invented a pg was always with it. I think the ads at that time (for example playtex with the slogan my girdle is killing me) were a mistake. Girdles became lighter and lighter and after some time women gave up wearing… Read more »

Klaus – I 100 percent agree with you – “The Power of the Girdle is still a secret”. It really is amazing how beneficial wearing a decent vintage girdle that is firm and boned daily really is. I never realized how great being in a decent girdle really is until I went to a corsetiere for both a fitting and girdle training. The girdle is making a slight comeback, but the girdles nowadays are very light and do not give enough needed control and support, in all honesty you might as well not wear a girdle. You are also correct… Read more »

I have found it to be true about a good girdle helping with lower back pain and headaches. I have been wearing one now for several years and it does help me a lot, physically and even at time emotionally. You look good you feel good is very true. If I don’t wear one one day I don’t feel quit right. The reason is my lower back will give me trouble and the pain shows on my face even if I try to hide it. I seem to look taller and walk with more confidence. Like it was stated in… Read more »
Klaus
Guest
Richelle, you are absolutely right. I like your wording “the girdle is our friend”. Although I do not suffer from back pain I feel much better when properly girdled. After long years of wearing a girdle every day I can not imagine to go without one. Ok, some may call it girdle dependency. I think there is a physical and a psychological issue with girdle wearing. A girdle give support to your back. It improves your posture, etc. But in addition I feel stronger wearing my girdle. I love the tightness and feel that I have more energy. I never… Read more »

Klaus I agree after experiencing girdle training with a professional corsetiere there is both a physiological and psychological component to being a a vintage girdle daily. What I believe happens is there is in a sense a body mind connection once you get to certain point with being girdled. In a sense a girdle becomes a part of you just as much as a arm or a leg. What I experienced for myself is once I could keep my stomach muscles relaxed and just rely on the girdle for support I found I really felt great sitting and standing, and… Read more »

Yes, this is very true, I often put on a girdle for the support, even when I’m staying at home and not going out.I suppose my body simply got used to being held in a girdle. So not only does a girdle shape me but it supportsd me and holds me up as well. This is well known to happen after a long time in girdles, but it can happen after a short time too depending on the person.
Oh the way it holds me up is blessed!
Guess I’m in for life now:-)

Gillane – for many years I have always wondered if a male could become like a woman Girdle Dependent, in otherwords not feel dressed unless in a girdle, and a feeling to need the support offers daily. I decided to do an experiment to see if as a male I could beocome like you. About 5 years ago I located a professional corsetiere with over 30 plus years experience fitting and putting both males and females through Girdle Training. The first thing the corsetiere did was sit me down and asked me some pointed questions about my life style and… Read more »

Gilliane, what you describe is the normal development. When you don a girdle for the first time you will find it uncomfortable after a few hours. But it does not take long and the desire to wear a girdle is there again. After a few days or weeks you get accustomed to your girdle. You start to wear a girdle more frequently and then daily. Now you feel at ease and you appreciate the support of your girdle. You feel the need to wear one. You would not want to go without one anymore. This is called girdle dependency but… Read more »

Not only would I miss the girdle but I would miss the nylon stockings as well.

You are right. Obg and stockings belong together. Although I wear pantyhose with pantygirdle too, nothing comes close to the feeling of a right fitting obg and stockings. The support of the girdle and the tugging of the garters with every step that is something special.

Tom Sleifer
Guest
Gilliane – I know exactly how you feel. I wake up each morning clean up and the first thing I do is I put on a girdle. I found that once I kept my stomach muscles relaxed and just rely completly on a girdle for supporting my posture I felt so much better, and yes over a few weeks of experiencing the benefit of being well encased supported by a girdle you do become quite dependent for life and you love it. I also experimented with hose and girdle which I found hose also give you additional support which also… Read more »

Great article. After years of experience with girdle wearing I highly recommend it for women as well for men. Yes, girdle wearing for men. There is a prejudice when a man wants to wear a girdle. There is no reason why a man would not profit from wearing a girdle too. The problem is that most women today do no longer wear girdles. Girdles have the image to be oldfashioned and restrictive and uncomfortable. Till the seventies almost all women wore girdles. Before pantyhose was invented you needed a girdle to keep your stockings in place. It was common practise… Read more »
