Thinnest Waist in the World

‘Cathie Jung’s waist is about the same size as a regular jar of mayonnaise. She’s been wearing a corset every day for the past 12 years, and she now wears one 24 hours a day. “I probably have around 100 of them,” says the corset queen.’

Freaky. Did she actually make her waist that much smaller with wearing corsets? Wouldn’t this have severe health implications?

Corsets are cheating. What is the smallest RAW waist measurement?

Are those corsets single ply or double ply?

Great V taper. That guy looking to make his ribcage smaller should contact this woman.

Looks like she’s got a nice rack too.

vomits in mouth

And check out this picture, it looks like her stomach is between her legs…

On a related note, when I was in South Boston a couple months ago I saw a woman with arms about the width of my dog’s leg. Gross.

Yes, wearing a corset all the time moves all the organs around in the body a LOT - they relocate. Not pleasant when taking the corset off etc… and takes years to get them out of the way.

Women used to do this all the time. From an early age.

That lady is taking it to the extreme, though.

Gah. If she removed the corsets long enough to take a few decent breaths, maybe she’d have the energy to do some arm work and get rid of that turkey wattle.

Yeah it happens sometimes.

She probably HAS to wear a corset 24 hours a day now. I bet if she took it off she wouldn’t be able to hold herself up. There is no way the core musculature would still be functional.

She wouldn’t be in good shape, that’s for sure but as long as she doesn’t sleep in it she could be OK. Most women who wear corsets every day are OK, this woman though has taken to the extreme, it is quite possible she could hurt herself without it, for sure.

But remember, this was a massive massive trend in the past, EVERY woman of worth was brought up wearing a corset from childhood, changing their shape significantly. People were every bit as body obsessed in the past.

And at other times in the past, really really really fat people were appealling.

Let’s face it humans are insane!

Dear god, I think I know who you’re talking about.

I was in that area a few years ago and saw a woman that looked like a walking pile of matchsticks glued together.
