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, ├óΓé¼╦£Wow, she’s really beautiful.’ I think anybody who throws the Kardashians shade is just jealous.”

Well, that settles that!
