  • Do not expose your Cincher to direct sunlight. It is a good idea to use a cover garment when you leave it out to dry. Alternatively you can also air dry it inside your room to avoid discoloration duet to sunlight. You can also use your hair dryer to dry it, but on low setting.
  • During this entire process, keep your waist trainer away from any and all other clothes. It can leave stains on whites if it comes in contact, or can also get sullied if it touches other garments made of, leather and such.

Latex is very likely to get destroyed or discolored if it is not taken care of properly. Make yourself sure that the garment is completely dry before storing it.
