They can be very beneficial in shaping the waist and even can reducing inches off your waist. They are also create a more noticeable shape and great for posture, and curves. There is a woman name Cathie Jung, she is a extreme version of the corset training and the affects it can have on you waist. Miss Cathie Jung waist is 21 inches, personally way to small for my liking. However, it is a testament for the use of corset training.
Shape wear can provide better posture, less pressure on your back. Corset can also be great for helping support the back, like a back brace. If you have serious back issues corset training might be harmful, but for reliving extra stress off of you back they can be great. It's a great way a encourage proper body posture.
Raise and shape the breasts and pull back the shoulders. Although, it can shape the breast, my opinion is this is only when wearing the garment. Somewhat, like a bra.
