  • Woman wears corset continually for THREE YEARS. Attains 16" waist...

    Jesus H. Christ.

    German woman flaunts barely there 16-inch waist achieved by wearing a corset nonstop* - NY Daily News

    From http://de.lifestyle.yahoo.com/blogs/...202928248.html

    After three years of spending virtually every moment in a corset (she wore it even while sleeping!), Kobke's back and stomach muscles are so weak that she has trouble standing up if she's not wearing one. She walks gingerly, as if her balance is off, and when she removes her corset, it leaves deep grooves and welts on her skin. In her YouTube videos, she has to pause and struggle to take deep breaths while talking to the camera. "My life hasn't changed, just slowed down a little," she said.

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I do like the look of corsets, but going to that extreme is nuts, IMO.

    Also, it's interesting seeing what a 16" waist actually looks like. I remember in Gone With The Wind (movie), it's mentioned that Scarlett has a 16" waist, and I remember watching that and thinking, "REALLY? That sounds tinier than it looks." And I was right.

      Google on "corset training" and you will find lots of pictures.

          It really is. I like the look of corsets too, but not to this extreme. I'd love to have one or two for the sake of wearing period costumes (former theatre major here) . . . but I couldn't ever do it to the point where it's more than 2-3" smaller than my natural waist. Reminds me of the pictures back in the height of corseting from the 16-18 hundred, where women's ribs and internal organs were just so completely out of whack.

          I imagine the people who do it at the very least must find it attractive, otherwise why do that do yourself?

                  Doubtful. The net effect of wearing a corset with that tiny a waist is that the abs atrophy from lack of use. The internal organs fit easily within the confines of the corset.

                  Back when corsets were the rule, people believed they were critically necessary for a woman's health. Now it is believed they are extremely harmful. Neither is true.

                    I've wondered if corseting would help me with my posture . . . . but then, probably not if it makes the muscles weaker . . . hmm.

                    I actually shopped for corsets last fall, just window shopping not buying, I was thinking how I'd like to get one when I got closer to my goal wait to wear with costumes . . . I'd still like to, but still feel I'd prefer to be closer to my healthy weight (whatever that ends up being) . . . they're just too expensive to buy one now and have to buy another in a few months to a year.

                    To be fair, even during the height of historical corset wearing, not all women did tight lacing to try and achieve a more dramatic hourglass shape.

                        I would be interested to see an x-ray or CT image of her internal organs. I would imagine that they are skewed.

                          That looks awful. I would love a waist though. I am pretty straight except for boobs LOL. that pic looks a bit odd though, could be a bit photoshopped.
                          Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
                          Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
                          Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

                            So letting your abs atrophy (and assuming back muscles) isn't harmful?

                            And she looks in pain. But whatever floats her boat....

                              Yeah.... to whoever you were quoting the latter is definitely TRUE. Sometimes old school didn't know best.
