The Price For Figure 8

The Kardashians are “obsessed.” Jessica Alba claims it helped her return to her pre- baby body, it is the next big thing in the Sex industry, but what exactly is “waist training,” and does it work? More importantly, is it safe?
My country has a funny way to adopt somethings; whenever we decide to adopt something we always go over the edge and it is the extreme we go to that worries me. Waist training is not a new thing in the world but in my beloved country it is gaining audience at an alarming rate.

What exactly is waist training?
This newly trendy practice 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

Does it work?
There is no research that proves that over time this device will reshape your waist size, but it can help you maintain a good posture, help you tuck in your tummy when you want to wear that lovely gown to an event , but asides that i believe once you remove it, your body goes back to the original state. It works better when you work out with it. 

Is it safe?
A friend of mine jokingly said the idea behind it could be likened to when we were young and wore shoes that were too tight and with time our toes reshaped to fit those shoes. Even if this is true, the main point should be when you were young with malleable bones but now you are old and you are trying to trim your waist, LOL, tell me something else joor. Anyway if you don’t trust my opinion, here is what experts have to say

"Dr. Oz's show that airs on FOX 26 shared a real wake-up call about the extreme side of it. He conducted CT scans "before" and then "while" a woman wore a waist-cinching device., “The diaphragm is pushed up two inches as to compared over there -- liver, gallbladder, kidneys - they're all pushed up," exclaims Dr. Oz. "The corset squeezes everything to go up. It's also squeezing all of your intestines. I was stunned seeing indentations in liver - that's the ribcage being shoved into the liver. I never imagined that these corsets would do that, People will have an increased chance of having gastric reflux disease, and can also cause constipation. I don't think you can change your waist size permanently by using only the waist trainers. There may be the chance of decreasing your waistline by a few inches or so, but I do not think extreme changes to the waistline are going to happen because of waist training, and I think it's important for people to go back to the things that do work - healthy diet and participating in regular exercise."

“Medically, it doesn’t make sense that cinching your waist tightly will make it permanently smaller,” says Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., clinical professor of ob-gyn at Yale School of Medicine. "Once you take the garment off, your body will return to its usual shape. It’s also uncomfortable, restricts your movements, and if you wear it really tight, it can even make it difficult to breathe and theoretically could cause rib damage.”

With the trend of fuller bottom and small waist line we are now deforming our internal organs to please men or attract them, and I am so sure a quality man would not want you going through this deforming process just to please him.  I hope my male readers will support my claim oh...
Anyway i wont help but confess that that 'hour-glass' shape is to die for and I will personally advice those using it not to use it in isolation but exercise with it.
