2/1/2003: Record smallest waist



What you're seeing there is the Guinness book record holder for smallest waist, packed into a vintage corset. The final number: 15 inches. The owner is Cathie Jung of Mystic, Connecticut.



The dieting bar has just been raised. The new fashion will be looking normal from your head down to the last rib, looking incredibly abnormal from that rib down to your hips, and then normal from the hips down.

Good luck.

That's just sick.

She probably can't survive without an exo-skeleton anymore -- too much internal re-organization had to happen here...

That looks throroughly freakish ... worse than seeing someone with a grossly oversized head.

One of the major problems with corsetry was the damage to the wearer's internal organs ... I watched 1900 House on PBS and that was one of the issues they addressed ... even over the short period of time wearing corsets, the women were starting to have problems with diminished lung capacity, etc.

That would explain why swooning was such a common event back than. I always wondered why women were so prone to fainting back then.

I don't think the picture is as disturbing as some other pictures I've seen on here though.
