My waist doesn’t want or need to be trained.
But all the celebs are doing it!
There have been lots of reports urging people not to practice this “fitness hack,” which involves “wearing a corset-like device for hours at a time to compress your core, which will supposedly decrease the size of your waist permanently over time.”
I’m no doctor, but do you really need to be one to say, ugh?
I mean, do we really want to encourage women to head back to the Victorian era?
In a time when every other essay you read celebrates positive body image, how can celebrities seriously be endorsing such a barbaric practice meant to forcefully change one’s body shape?
But endorse them they do.
I don’t even care if not all the health risks are true; how can anyone want to encourage women to alter their normal body shape?
We are an anti-corset generation!
We are all about empowerment and being who we are and being proud!
Or is all this positive body-image talk just a bunch of bull slung by marketing teams?
We get to decide.
