In a world full of “social media queens” and Instagram fitness models with millions of followers, sometimes it’s hard not to get lost in all the vanity and materialism that popular culture brings. Today, it seems that some people will sink to new lows to achieve the perfect body, even if it means putting their own health at risk.
A 27-year-old model from Venezuela is doing just that, and her way of achieving the perfect body includes wearing a corset 23 hours a day.
The model in question is Aleira Avendano. Hailing from Venezuela, this model has undergone over 25 plastic surgeries while maintaining a strict diet to achieve the “perfect look.”
Her latest attempt at achieving her dream body involved her wearing a Victorian corset for 23 hours a day every day for six months.
Avendano has been attempting to slim down her waist for years now and has been wearing a corset on and off for the past six.
Referring to the corset as her second skin, Avendano has no regrets about what she is doing to her body, despite the fact that doctors warn that waist training with a corset is extremely unhealthy and unsafe.
Wearing corsets can dramatically shift your organs. “It just crams all of your organs together. So over a long period of time, wearing it too much and too frequently, it can cause damage too,” says Atlanta physician Dr. Tasneem Bhatia.
