In case you haven't noticed, waist training is the latest fitness fad to take over Instagram.
Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kim Zolciak-Biermann are just a few of the names to endorse slimming corsets — but not if Dita Von Teese has something to say about it!

The burlesque dancer slash author recently spoke out about the trend, and particularly the Kardashians' flaunting theirs with selfies on IG, saying:
"Well, I think it's funny because I'm watching it. It's like the blind leading the blind."
Though Dita did continue to explain:
"The people who actually know a lot about corsetry are not the ones who are publicly speaking about it. And I'm seeing some of the corsets they're saying are waist shapers and I'm thinking, ‘That doesn't work.'"
And she should know!
The 43-year-old started getting into corsetry at the age of 18, even once whittling her waist down to a size 17! The beauty icon also admitted:
"It seems to be a fast fix. And it is! If you put on a corset and pull the strings tight, you instantly have this silhouette. And it's great, but it's not going to modify your body if you're not engaged in a serious [regimen] of it… Waist training is not for everyone."
So, there you have it!
Maybe Miz Von Teese can give the famous fam some tips if they really want that hourglass figure!
