Women have always tried to look pretty and smart and thin. They are born with a feeling of looking better than others.
Some women try bizarre beauty techniques and facials to look pretty while other opt for bizarre ideas to look thin and achieve the body they desire to have. But what you desire is not always right for you and one should always keep in mind what’s healthy and what’s freaky.
One such freaky story is of Michele Kobke. A 24-year-old German girl who has shrunk her waist from 25 inches to just 16 inches by wearing a corset day and night for three years, even while sleeping!
She progressively wore smaller corsets in order to achieve her ideal waist. But to our surprise this 5 ft 5 inch tall girl still isn’t satisfied with it. She wants to achieve the world’s smallest waist i.e. 14 inches, a title which belongs to American Cathie Jung who has a waist of just a mere 38 cm.
Kobke’s practice is making her unhealthy. She can’t take proper meals, her breathing is not as strong as girls similar to her age and her muscles have become so weak that she cannot walk properly without wearing a corset.
The question is; how is Kobke’s obsession making her pretty? Is it fine to risk so much for a desirable waist, which by the way is not as amazing as it looks to Kobke! And we are not even going to talk about how uncomfortable it would be to stay in a corset all the time; it’s so obvious!
