Dita Von Teese is changing her tune on the comments she made last week about the Kardashians and other celebrities who incorrectly promote waist trainers.
She just knows better, that's all!
The 43-year-old started getting into corsetry at the age of 18, even once whittling her waist down to a size 17 — so we'd say she definitely knows what she's talking about!

The burlesque performer told People that she's skeptical of the trendy waist trainers being marketed today:
"It seems to me there are people that are jumping on the bandwagon to make corsets because the Kardashians have mentioned them, and it's seen as a fast-track to slimming the waist. I just encourage people to get more information so they actually know what it is and how it works. Waist-training is a form of body modification that can't be done properly with an ill-fitting or even off-the-rack corset. That's a long-term thing and a different thing than I think the Kardashians are talking about."
Fair enough. She is the expert, after all!
But just because Miz Von Teese isn't a fan of their waist training bandwagon, doesn't mean she has anything personal against the reality royalty fam. In fact, she admits to being obsessed with Kim Kardashian West:
"I'm crazy about Kim. I think she's lovely. Every time I see her and talk to her, I think, ‘Wow, she's really beautiful.' I think anybody who throws the Kardashians shade is just jealous."
Join the club, Dita.
Well, that settles that!
