She’s known for her tiny waist, but Dita Von Teese isn’t a fan of waist training (when it’s done the wrong way, at least.)
The 43-year-old model, who had a 17-inch-waist at one point, talked to HuffPostLive, saying, “People that actually know a lot about corsetry are not the ones that are publicly speaking about it.”
“I think it’s funny because I’m watching [the trend] and it’s like the blind leading the blind.”
Reality star Kim Zolciak, who has been known to show off her waist training online, claims the method helped her lose four inches around her waistline. She also called upon her followers to join in on the journey with her, including a promo code so they could get a discounted waist trainer, too.
Jessica Alba has even been known to use waist training, reportedly telling Net-a-Porter that she used it to try to get back to her pre-baby body.
“I’m seeing some of these corsets that they’re saying are waist shapers and I’m like, ‘That doesn’t work.’ They’re like stretchy fabric. If you really want to get into it, you should probably look into the real corset makers that have been doing it for decades and decades,” Dita continued.
“There are lots of experts on it, but I don’t know that you should be jumping on the bandwagon to sing the praises of corsets,” she said.
