DALLAS -- There's a lot of quick ways to get skinny these days. But, now, it’s no secret that women have found a not-so-new-way to train their bodies without hitting the gym.
Yeah, the age-old corset trick has been around for centuries. Women would go to extreme measures to squeeze into the garment made of silks and whalebone, just so they can flatten out their entire torso.
You’ve probably seen a couple of celebs rocking the trend--- except they're calling it “waist training."
Kim K has been snapped in these so-called waist cinching products. She claims that she wears them a couple hours a day to enhance her curves and make her waist extra tiny or "on fleek."
But as much as this look may be ideal for some ladies, TV docs from the hit show Botched are stressing it's not worth future health risks.
“You can cause a problem with your lungs. You can cause a problem with some of your internal intestines because you're taking your rib cage and you’re just squishing it down,” Dr. Paul Nassif told E! News.
A corset can do a lot for a lady and that just may include killing her!
