Khloe Kardashian's Waist Training Obsession Is Getting a Little Concerning (PHOTO)

It's obvious Khloe Kardashain has been taking very good care of herself lately. She watches what she eats, exercises, and seems in a great place, mentally, since her divorce from Lamar Odom. But Khloe's obsession with waist-training is causing concern after she posted a scary and unnatural-looking photo of herself.


Few people even knew about waist-training before the Kardashian/Jenner sisters became its most famous poster girls. Khloe, 31, constantly snaps photos of herself wearing the tight corset, usually while she is working out at the gym, though many women wear them all day long in the hopes that they will help shrink their waists.

If her goal is indeed to shrink herself down to doll-like proportions, Khloe hasn't only achieved what she wants, she has surpassed it. In this case, I'm not sure that is a good thing. Here's her most recent photo:

Yeah, I know, no pain, no gain -- but holy hell, that looks like the single most uncomfortable thing you can wrap around your body. How hasn't she broken every one of her ribs while wearing that?

I don't feel it's helpful to perpetuate the notion that certain body types are better than others, and it's just as bad to skinny- or fit-shame someone, so I won't knock the size of her waist here. Some women naturally have waistlines that are significantly smaller than their hips and bust and that's great for them. I just hope Khloe isn't desperately trying to achieve a body that isn't attainable for many women, and isn't better or worse than any other body type.

I also hope she isn't in incredible pain and willing to suck it up for the sake of an 18-inch waist. She looks amazing -- with or without her waist-trainer.
