Women are constantly expected to look “perfect.” From hair length and color, to weight, lips, hips and everything in between, the standards of beauty that are imposed by society can be downright daunting. Many women go to great lengths to be beautiful in the eyes of mainstream media, and the results can be disheartening, to say the least. Some women have been seriously injured as a result of certain beauty treatments, and others have, unfortunately, lost their lives trying to obtain the perfect body.
Waist training is a beauty trend that has been around for centuries, and is starting to gain popularity again. Women are attracted to this trend because it promises to slim the waistline while accentuating the hips, which makes for a curvy figure. This doesn’t sound bad in and of itself, but waist training can have serious implications, especially if it is done in excess. Of course, it doesn’t help that several celebrities have allegedly tried this trend, which only makes “commoners” want to “train their waists” even more. There have even been reports that waist training can cause the internal organs to be displaced, and can lead to chronic back pain. But alas, these factors still don’t stop some people from giving waist training a try. Here are 10 cases of people who took waist training way too far.
9 Jessica Alba
8 Kim Zolciak-Biermann
7 Jenni Farley
6 Nicole Polizzi
5 Kourtney Kardashian
4 Khloe Kardashian
3 Nicki Minaj
2 Aleira Avendano
1 Kelly Lee Dekay
Kelly Lee Dekay, a woman from New York, has been waist training for seven years, and has a size 16 waist. The corset she uses is made from steel bone, and is strapped on tight to get the desired look. Kelly is also a fetish model, so that may be the reason why she has no problem whittling her waist down to this tiny size to show off her other…assets. She states that she’s long been inspired by cartoon characters and loves the exaggeration that comes with fashion. Dekay is also a fashion student, so her obsession is (somewhat) understandable. Even though it’s clear to see that Dekay has gotten way out of hand with waist training, she states that she does understand that she would “break” if she had the measurements of an actual cartoon character. Looks like she’s well on her way.
