Blac Chyna, former exotic dancer and girlfriend to rapper Tyga, knows a thing or two about creating a sexy waistline. She  has all the Kardashian girls cinching their waistline with waist training.

Check out Khloe showing off her widdled waist, while giving Chyna a shout out on instagram;



 “I love my waist trainer from @premadonna87!!!!Miss@blacchyna has me obsessed!!! Who doesn’t love to feel tight and right?!? #whatsawaist #waistgang #Fitness #GetItRight,” highlights just how hard she’s been grinding in the gym.

Even actress Jessica Alba claimed she waist trained to shed the baby weight after she having children.

“I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was brutal; it’s not for everyone. It was

               sweaty, but worth it.”

Waist training is a process where you use a corset to train your waistline to shrink over a period of time.  This is not a new fad, it actually has been around since the 1920’s and started over in Europe.

It’s true it does work (to an extent), but that doesn’t mean it is safe. The benefits of waist training include improved posture and added abdominal support, and of course a smaller waistline.

But with benefits often come risks. Although it will help flatten that tummy, it will actually decrease abdominal muscle tone. Along with even more serious risks including deformation of the stomach, liver and lungs. Decreasing your lung capacity anywhere between 60-30 percent, making it harder to breath. Oh yeah and it causes constipation issues too.

So my friends, the choice is yours. Proper diet and exercise is always the best way to reach your fitness goals safely! But if you must, try this with caution, being aware of any sharp shooting pains or shortness of breath.
