If a waist trainer for women could help you achieve a smaller waist, you can forget about going for a painful rib resection or floating rib removal. Rib removal has gained popularity in the last several years as wasp waists and hourglass shapes have again become the aesthetic ideal. While in Victorian fashion this was achieved with laced corsets, today this can be achieved with surgery by removing the “floating” lower ribs, numbers 11 and 12. The operation, which is irreversible, is usually performed for medical reasons but can be used for cosmetic purposes after extensive consultation.
In Sweden, a 25-year old lady who was inspired by animated characters like Jessica Rabbit, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Holli Would from Cool World went under the knife to have some of her ribs removed. She dreamed of having a super tiny waist, big boobs, big eyes and a really pretty face and having her ribs removed was just another step in achieving that ideal. The extreme five-hour keyhole surgery operation cost £6,000 and was performed by a plastic surgeon.
The Swedish is not the only figure-obsessed lady who had gone through pains to achieve her dream body. In 2018 a A Barbie-obsessed mum shrunk her waist to a tiny 21 inches prior to a £15k rib removal surgery to achieve the perfect hour-glass figure. The Barbie-fanatic mum spent months eating a strict diet and wore a waist trainer designed to shrink her waistline – for five hours every day. Despite her waist shrinking by a staggering five inches, the 34-year-old wasn’t satisfied and shrunk her waist by another three inches before the rib removal surgery where six ribs were removed to achieve her mission to look like her doll idol, Barbie 😲
Now if you could achieve something similar while still looking like a human, why do you have to even consider removing parts of your body? Products like double belt slimming waist trainer, high waisted shaper shorts and high waist tummy control slimming pants can help women achieve a svelte body, along with a healthy low-carb diet and daily exercise.
Waist trainers help you maintain proper posture while you stand and sit because the metal bones in waist trainers make it impossible for you to slouch. They improve your posture by providing the necessary support to your back. Many women and celebrities vouch that they feel more confident when they see the changes in their waistline and posture after wearing waist trainers.
