Please excuse my crap drawing but it’s to make a point. The most “desired” shape for a man is hour glass. It’s what is also pressured (besides being thin) for woman to obtain. It’s actually one if thee hardest looks to get. Being “skinny” is quite easy you just eat less and exercise right? Well some women get ribs removed and go through painful EXCRUCIATING waist training to just some what look this way. Also go under the knife just to get that “anaconda booty” and “I don’t eat ever waist”. I always say society pushes woman to be skinny but they also push woman to be the “Ultimate” woman. And if your belly has the slightest bit if fat your not curvy your gross. It’s SO much hard to try and stay “thick” and it’s just crappy. Stop saying only certain body types are beautiful because they aren’t. They are ALL beautiful. I’d rather be forced to be skinny then forces to be “thick”.

The rib removal is a myth. There are zero actual verifiable cases of women having ribs removed for cosmetic reasons. Also, waist training, when done correctly (as it should be like all body modifications), is painless. Please research before you spout false claims, they hurt your otherwise valid point.

Literally no one has ever gotten ribs removed to make their waist smaller. Someone needs to check their facts before opening their mouth.

I could be wrong but I feel cosmetic Rib removal would be fatal .

That is true, plus no surgeon would ever do it. I believe it has been discussed on here somewhere what would happen if ribs would be removed from the body. It would be super dangerous and would permanently mangle someone. It’s never happened, nor would it ever.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Morgana and are proud to present the second look from our photo shoot. She’s wearing the Selene corset, a dark twin to the Serena piece. This charcoal silk duchess satin is embellished with tulle, lace and thousands of hand sewn jet black crystal beads! 

Corset:  Vanyanís

Help! Im doing some research on Waist Training and I’m interested in chatting with any ladies (in training) and gaining whatever knowledge and information they have to share with me.

No, I am NOT interested in “Corset Training”. Which, as I understand, is different from Waist Training.

If you…

Waist training IS corset training. Waist training with a corset came loooong before latex shapers. What you are referring to is weight loss using a latex cincher/girdle.
tightlacedwaist
EXAAAACTLY which is why I made that EXACT distinction in the post… (rolls eyes) I knew one of you white heffas was gonna hop on this post with that bullshit… Look at the tags, please… Im obviously NOT interested in Corset Training or in talking to any of you wannabe Victorian bitches who’s sole purpose is to contort your bodies into some unnatural bullshit shape.. White girls…. Your input is neither desired nor required.. You are dismissed, Thank you. Goodbye…
Well, my apologies for attempting a little clarification and for clearly insulting you with my skin colour and aesthetic preferences.

First of all take your racism and shove it somewhere other than tumblr. Second of all latex girdles/shapewear is not waist training. Wearing a compression garment to make you sweat out water is not training your waist. There’s no need for you to be rude and shitty to someone. And race? Seriously? What the fuck does race have to do with anything?

thecorsetauthority please take that (Im a woc so what I say goes) bullshit somewhere else… Im not being racist. Im Black. I don’t have that kind of power… As a “woc” you should KNOW that… Anyway… I have made it PERFECTLY CLEAR that I RECOGNIZE and understand the DIFFERENCE between corset body modification and “waist training” aka fat cell mobilization through weight loss… Again, I am NOT interested in ANYTHING regarding STEEL BONE CORSET TRAINING or BODY MODIFICATION…. You bitches are either illiterate or have NO comprehension skills… I DONT want to talk to y’all… Is that clear? So please save your non existent “reverse racism” bullshit for somebody who doesn’t know any better… If you dont have any information regarding the topic I’m requesting information on, PLEASE GO THE FUCK AWAY and quit trying to hijack my posts with your pointless nonsense… ok? Thanks so much. Goodbye.

I’m a woman of color meaning not only “white heffas” (seriously calling people cows? You’re immature as fuck) wear proper real corsets. Weight loss. Is. Not. Waist. Training.

An ironic reason to wear a corset…

boopa-boop:

I’ve discovered a new reason I love to wear corsets this week.  I’ve lost some weight recently (not good) and I feel tiny and pathetic and my clothes don’t fit the same.  So when I throw my corset on and fill an article of clothing up completely I feel like I take up more space.  I realize that by appearances it’s the complete opposite. But I don’t see my torso all day, I just get to enjoy feeling like I exist as matter that takes up space.  Which is nice.

First time wearing a corset at college! I told my roommate about my new hobby and thankfully she didn’t freak out and call me weird. I was really worried about telling her but she told me, “more power to ya sister!”

Third time seasoning my CS-201 but I’m not sure what measurement I’m at because I left my tape at home!
