Kim Zolciak Joins The Waist Trainer Craze

The Kardashians love it. Jessica Alba did it. Now, Kim Zolciak is the latest celebrity to join in on the waist trainer craze.

Zolicak revealed her new waist trainer in an Instagram selfie Wednesday. The 36-year-old mother of six, who was dressed in a dark tank top and pants, sported a waist-cinching corset.

"Soooo you guys finally talked me into trying a waist trainer! I can't believe how tiny it makes my waist I'm obsessed with @nowaistclique waist trainer and it doesn't show through my clothes!" she wrote.


Kim, Khloe and Kourtney each use waist trainers. Alba revealed she wore corsets after the births of her daughters. But despite the Hollywood trend, health professionals have expressed concern over the risks of waist training.

“Medically, it doesn’t make sense that cinching your waist tightly will make it permanently smaller,” Mary Jane Minkin, M.D., a clinical professor of ob-gyn at Yale School of Medicine, told Women's Health magazine last year. "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.”
