Is waist training with a corset ok? Along with diet and exercise?

Corset issues...: Think of your body like a balloon, like the long ones that people make animals out of.

If I wear a corset for kyphosis correction, can I continue to go to the gym? What physical restrictions will I have? Do I need to wear it 24/7?

Wearing a brace too much can cause stiffnessand atrophy. ...Read more

I wear 3 corsets at a time (waist training) for about 20 hours a day and have been for a few months now. Could this affect my menstrual cycle?

I wear 3 corsets at a time (waist training) for about 20 hours a day and have been for a few months now. Could this affect my menstrual cycle?

The hip & pelvic bones tend to protect the pelvic organs. If the corsets are preventing you from eating or if you're seriously stressed out trying to achieve a look that isn't natural for you, they could affect your cycles indirectly. Not recommended! ...Read more
