One thing is true - all us women are different shapes! A fact which is so often overlooked. So inevitably as the trends come and go women all over the world struggle to make themselves into the new ideal shape. From stick thin to voluptuous curves there is no end to this merry-go-round of body shape fashions.
A trend being driven at the moment by celebrity culture is the demand for the hour glass figure and much publicity has surrounded the use of the waist training corset.
Just do a search on Google and you will find stories of women who have taken waist training to an extreme, boasting of achieving a 16 inch waist and posting images of themselves which would not be out of place in a cartoon, so extreme is their new body shape.

Snug fitting garments that are too tight and worn regularly are not good for you.
