Should Women Be Waist-Training After Pregnancy? Corset-Queen Dita Von Teese Weighs In

Legendary burlesque star Dita Von Teese shares how she feels about using a corset to get back in shape.

 

As the undisputed queen of striptease (and by default, the baroness of burlesque), Dita Von Teese has worn many a corset throughout her career. But what does she think of the new waist-training fad, whereby women utilize constrictive corsets to help reshape their bodies after pregnancy?

"I've obviously, famously worn corsets my entire adult life," begins Von Teese in our exclusive interview above. "They can shape you; they are a form of body modification. Of course, I wouldn't think that would be the advice I would give to a new mother," she adds.
