Kim Kardashian did it and now Khloe Kardashian is doing it. Waist training is popular once again. Before the bra was patented in the early 1900s, women wore corsets. Doctors believed that it was essential that women wore them to hold their organs in place. Today, the corset is worn to
promote weight loss. While the corset does not, by itself, cause weight loss, its tightness around the midsection can reduce the amount of food a person eats. Because it is so tight, many people who have worn a corset have felt sick after eating. Their stomach can’t expand as they eat, and it leaves the wearer feeling like they need to throw up.
