Waists are so last season! Kim Kardashian is constantly working on her famous figure, and these days she has a little help from her trusty corsets. 

On Wednesday, Oct. 29, the reality star, 34, posted a full-body selfie via Instagram, showing off her tiny figure. 

“I’m really obsessed with waist training! Thank you @premadonna87 for my new waist shapers! #whatsawaist,” she captioned the photo of herself in black workout gear with the blue waist shaper around her middle.

This isn’t the first time the mother of little Nori has promoted the new trend. In August, she Instagrammed another photo of herself wearing a corset from What’s a Waist, which retails at $143.50. 

The idea behind waist training is that wearing the device for long periods of time will permanently change your shape. But there are critics of the trend, which is also practiced by Kim’s younger sister Khloe Kardashian.

Women’s Health Magazine spoke to Mary Jane Minkin, the clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale School of Medicine, who noted, “Once you take the garment off, your body will return to its usual shape. It’s also uncomfortable, restricts your movements, and if you wear it really tight, it can even make it difficult to breathe and theoretically could cause rib damage.”
