Former BBNaija housemate, Uriel Oputa has replied to Yvonne Nelson’s article, warning people not to be duped into trying to achieve a “snatched figure” with the use of waist trainers.
Uriel, who is also a brand influencer for waist trainers, has expressed her displeasure with this.
Waist trainers, according to Uriel, work and have been used by African women in the past to shape their bodies after birth.
She wrote, “Stop Tagging me on the recent blog post. I’m Drama free so this is coming from a place of Honesty. If you have worked with me you know I wouldn’t touch your product unless I’ve used it!!! Credibility is worth more than money to me!!!
“WAIST training doesn’t work? Why has waist training been around since the 1800,s Why is there still a huge market for it??? Yes I influence but I influence with honesty Waist training helps structure the body while you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
“We are Africans right ?? What happens after African women gives birth ? We bind/tie our stomach right?? Now if that isn’t old school waist training then I don’t know So does waist training work? Look through my pictures I combine everything, Diet small small workout.. from a size 16 to now.
“Yo let me continue biko. I can tell you this any woman who has struggled with their weight will know this.. when you put on a trainer and you can finally fit into a dress that feeling is gold!!! Work??
“Let’s explore the Narrative of working?? Is it physical working or emotional?? Because it does both. I can testify that the slim tea from the brand I represent works. I won’t tag them before you say na Ad. But just look at my page. I didn’t do surgery so it must work 000 I had to speak out because of all the Tags it was getting to much. I felt attacked.”
