A powernet waistcincher is made of very sturdy cotton and does not contain latex. Therefore this model is especially suitable for people with a latex allergy. We are often asked whether it works equally well as a waisttrainer with latex. And it does work but a litlle different! Latex makes you really sweat and therefore lose inches of your waist if you really go through the waist training process. All waisttrainers will immediately narrow your waist, lett your clothes look better on you and enhance your posture. But is produces less sweat. So depending on your goal and of course your body yourself, because you do not have allergies in own hand, this is a waisttrainer with nearly equal abilities as a model with latex.
