Neoprene waist trimmer is an elastic fitness accessories manufactured by several weight loss and fitness companies. Widths and length will vary with larger sizes and widths available for dieters who need additional waist coverage. Neoprene waist trimmer technology focuses on heat and abdominal muscles. According to literature found online, heat retention helps to melt away fat from the midsection while the elastic band makes the tummy look slimmer immediately. Neoprene waist trimmer can be worn on top of clothing or under clothing without much difference in how the trimmer works.

List of Ingredients

Elastic neoprene waist belt.

Product Features

Television infomercials trying to sell neoprene waist trimmer products will show dieters an infrared image of the abdominal muscles with and without the belt. These pictures can be quite deceiving. Just because abdominal muscles or skin collect heat under the neoprene waist trimmer does not mean more fat is burning off the body. The slimming effect comes from the elastic band and strong Velcro strap and any loss of inches in the waist can only be attributed to exercise and a reduced calorie diet.

With so many neoprene waist trimmer products on the market, we searched for some clinical research showing how neoprene can increase weight loss. No clinical trials could be found and no manufacturers mentioned their products were clinically proven. The only proven effect is an increase in heat under the area where the belt is secured on the body. Fat located in cells around the abdomen does not liquefy and absorb into the body.

What neoprene waist trimmer products will do is cause sweating. Sweating can decrease fluid stores in the body and thus show some negligible water loss. This water loss will not be substantial enough to cause significant weight loss even over extended periods of use.

Neoprene waist trimmers sell for $7.00 to more than $50.00 depending on the manufacturer.

  • None.


  • Neoprene does not increase weight loss.
  • Neoprene waist trimmer products are not clinically proven to reduce fat or slim the abdomen.
  • Product prices vary widely.
  • Infrared pictures show only increased heat not increased fat burn.


Manufacturers of neoprene waist trimmer products try to convince the dieter that infrared pictures of increased heat means fat is burned from the area where the belt is secured more quickly. There are no clinical studies proving these claims to be accurate. Instead of securing a belt to the midsection during workouts, the dieter may find better support with a thermogenic blend of herbs. Fat burning supplements work to increase metabolism and heat within the body. This thermogenesis is responsible for added calorie burn and thus, improved fat loss. Common proven ingredients include Green Tea Extract and Caffeine.

    i have this nordictrack adjustable waist timmer, and how do i clean it. i do a lot o sweating with it on. can i but it in the washing machine and wash it with my regular cloths.

    Don’t wash it, certain chemicals like ammonia or bleach will have a chemical reaction with the neoprene and will dissolve your waist belt…maybe just use a mildsoap and hot water and hang it to dry.

    The chemicals that are used in making this material(neoprene) cause cancer and reproductive problems… find a safer alternative…

    I did not buy this belt with huge expectations of lioosng inches. Exercise and diet does that. I really wanted it because I have a condition called diatasis recti. Not serious, but it has resulted in a herniated belly button and looks terrible if I am exercising. I needed a tight, tough belt to hold everything together. I have had this belt on all day now while working. The first belt I bought was the Bally Slimmer Belt With Zippers. I thought the zippers would make for a tight fitting belt versus the Velcro. The Bally belt fell apart the first day. This is one is strong and sturdy. The Velcro system is fine.

    I am currently using one and the excess sweat being trapped under the belt is causing me to have a rash….a bad rash….everywhere the belt touches it is itchy and burning…it is a nordic track brand….it could be my personal experience, but I thought i should share!

    I use the neoprene waist belt. Helps with back pain
    and, I feel, weight loss. Helps make you look smoother
    in workout clothes too.

    Got to agree with Sweetie. Used a brand that was a sealed 1 piece article (no Velcro, turn it inside out, pull it up, roll it up). Lost inches which translated into weight loss. I’m always concerned about a column/blog that sells products after dismissing other products. Isn’t the Flex belt thats being touted working on a similar concept? Just wondering…
