Kim Kardashian didn't invent the waist trainer, but she definitely brought back the fitness trend from the dead — and that's after little sis Khloe was already seen wearing one!
But now that more celebs are getting on board and following in their footsteps, we have to wonder just how healthy it is to whittle down your waist this way.

So before you go out to pick one up, we thought we'd EXCLUSIVELY chat with celebrity plastic surgeon, Dr. Alessi, of the Alessi Institute and Face Forward Foundation to get his medical opinion on the practice plaguing Instagram.
He brings up some really great points!
Waist training is all the rage these days!
We already know that both Kim and Khloe Kardashian subscribe to it and have totally seen results, and it looks like Snooki has gotten into it too!

The mother-of-two recently posted a photo of herself wearing a hot pink waist trainer on Instagram, and included the following caption:
"Every MOM needs a little extra help sometimes. Thanks @1800Cinchers for helping me out. www.1800cinchers.com #1800cinchers"
It makes sense that waist training would appeal to mothers.
After all, Jessica Alba got her shape back by wearing a double corset for 3 months straight — waist training just seems like a less intense version of that!

We're so happy for Snooki and JWoww for going through the beauty of childbirth.

Srsly, JWoww talking about her vajayjay falling out is equal parts horrifying and hilarious (mostly because we know she and her baby girl both turn out fine)!
Snooki & JWoww airs on Wednesday night at 10pm ET/PT, but you can see our EXCLUSIVE first look (below)!
Umm, we don't know whether to be creeped out or impressed by Snooki's baking skills!
Snooks, who threw her bestie JWoww a baby shower on a recent episode of Snooki & JWoww, baked her friend a very INTERESTING cake for the fun fête.

Yep, to celebrate the impending birth of Jenni's daughter, the tiny guidette prepared a VAGINA cake!
The snookster explicitly explained:
Oh, how the times have changed!
Back when Snooki launched her very first fragrance in 2011, she was still promoting GTL, partying, and leopard print. And her initial perfume clearly reflected that!
But now that the 26-year-old has two children and is about to tie the knot with her baby daddy Jionni LaValle, she's decided to leave rainbow leopard packaging behind, in favor of something a little more mature…

With 15 bridesmaids, you'd think there would be a little bit of drama surrounding the upcoming nuptials, but according to Snooki, all the girls are really close to each other:
