Icon of burlesque and fashion expert extraordinaire, Dita Von Teese, has very strong opinions about the Waist Training fad, which has been gratuitously spearheaded by the Kardashians. Von Teese did not bite her tongue when telling HuffPost Live, “I think it’s funny because I’m watching it and it’s like the blind leading the blind.
Von Teese then went more in-depth to her objection with this phenomenon:
People that actually know a lot about corsetry are not the ones that are publicly speaking about it. And I’m seeing some of these corsets that they’re saying are waist shapers and I’m like, ‘That doesn’t work.’ They’re like stretchy fabric. If you really want to get into it, you should probably look into the real corset makers that have been doing it for decades and decades.
The former Mrs. Marilyn Manson, fashion designer, and author of the book, Your Beauty Mark, explains that she’s not against corsets, however, by elaborating, “It seems to be a fast fix, and it is. If you put on a corset and you pull the strings tight, you instantly have this silhouette and it’s great — but it’s not going to modify your body if you’re not engaged in the serious regimen of it.” Dita also dropped the term “bandwagon” to illustrate her disdain on what is essentially a Kardashian social-media fad. Shots fired!
