Corset waist training; the health risk associated with achieving the hourglass figure.

With the recent increase of corsets wearing by celebrities in Jamaica and around the world, many young women including myself have fallen prey to the delusion and false sense of true beauty in our society today. It’s our aim to achieve that hourglass figure portrayed on our television screens and fashion magazines by some of the biggest names in the fashion industry. But is it even safe or realistic for all women to look like Kim Kardashian or even Amber Rose?

 In doing my research on this topic it’s staggering to see the number of young women who were convinced that their waist were much smaller after couple hours of wearing this cinching garment. On the contrary there were equal number of medical personnel who were saying these garments don’t work, while reiterating the innumerable health effects associated with wearing a corset waist training garment.

In trying to squeeze into a corset, you could potentially harm the major internal organs that reside in that region.  It has been agreed by many medical practitioners including Dr Jan Schroeder, Professor of Fitness in the Department of Kinesiology at California State University that Corsets do not result in a permanent loss of fat in the midsection but rather a re-distribution of the fat and organs, to give the appearance of a smaller waist.

It’s important to note also that tightening the abdomen and torso could affect lung function by restricting the amount of space available for the lungs to expand into the abdomen and fill with air thus, oxygen or carbon dioxide will not be inhaled or expel respectively resulting in the person becoming short of breath.

According to an articles posted by Life by Daily Burn, Dr. Ball was sited saying ,“If you genetically don’t have an hourglass shape, you can exercise all you want, but you might not end up with an hourglass figure.” So if your skeletal system do not have an hourglass structure it’s impossible to obtain such figure from wearing a corset.  

As young women we need to find our inner beauty and embrace it. If you want to be a size six just focus on eating a clean diet until you achieved your goal weight. Diet and exercise is not our issue in this society today but rather the will power and perseverance we need to accomplished what ever our desires maybe. First develop these two skills afterward everything will fall into place. Remember there is only one of you therefore, love and value your unique you.

Do you think wearing a corset slims the midsection?

I completely disagree with the waist trainer ideas. there are many other ways such as dieting exercise and they even have programs like Jenny Craig and weight watchers that help to do the same thing. I think that it is a lazy idea to use waist trainers. If you dedicate yourself to the safer ways to lose weight and get the figure you want, you are doing your body a lot more good. Some persons will not get the hourglass figure because they are just not made that way, but at least you will know that your body is healthy.
