A single mother who wants to break the record for the world’s smallest waist has revealed that she wears a corset for 18 hours a day to shrink her already tiny 21.5-inch torso.
Sammy Wilson, 26, from Georgia, started waist training in April 2019 to help add some curves to her frame after losing weight. She can now squeeze into a 15-inch corset, and she’s determined to whittle her 21.5-inch waist down to 14 inches. ‘I want to have the smallest waist in the world,’ she explained. ‘If I get down to 14 inches my waist will be roughly the same size as an average newborn baby’s head and one inch smaller than the current world record.’
The Guinness World Record for the smallest waist on a living person is currently held by Cathie Jung, who has a 15-inch waist. Just two years ago, Sammy weighed 198 pounds and wore a size 16, but she was miserable with her physique and was desperate to transform her 35-inch waist. The mom, who has a son, Gabriel, started losing weight in December 2018. She dropped down to a slim size 6 in just four months, but she was still unhappy with her boxy waist. After seeing another woman’s waist-training results online, the young mom bought her first-ever corset, which measured 22 inches.
‘When I first started I just wanted to try and get to a 20-inch corset, but once I’d got there I just wanted to keep going,’ she said. Now, Sammy weighs 116lbs, wears a size 00, and has a 21.5-inch waist. In order to try to shrink her waist even further, she wears her 15-inch corset for 18 hours a day, and once a month she will leave it on for 36 hours straight.
‘Despite people’s concerns I think it has helped my health massively,’ she said. ‘I used to be a terrible binge eater but I just can’t binge eat when I’m wearing this. It helps my posture so I won’t have a hump when I’m older and it’s very good for my metabolism.
