Wear but this is sounding a little too close to a corset exotic not Yeah I'm with you. I've never use the waste trainer but I thought this is something important to discuss again just because it's all over instagram. It's all all over different websites different blogs and I just wanted to kind of dive in deeper and see what's the waist training craze so so unfortunately we know that body types are trend so that's just what it is and the hourglass figure has regained a lot of popularity in recent years and Celebrities like the Kardashians Jessica Alba Jennifer Lopez and. Many more are have helped bringing curves back to the spotlight and many influencers and other public figures claim that they have achieved these curvaceous figures And snatched waste with the help of waste trainers snatched waste So yeah so that terms not waist. I've been hearing it every words pretty much as saying like you have a tiny waist. I mean I think I I for me. I hear the word cinched-waist in that but snatched. Okay I I. It's something you know that I started hearing the Kardashian say another celebrities so again that's kind of the whole being snatched ties in with the waist training gene right trying to right now. I'd Probably Watch. I probably spend more time in Victorian era books than watching the car Dash Ev. You Know I. They don't try to watch their show but I feel like I can't get away from them the they're everywhere so it's like I kinda you know watch bits and pieces is there And there's different forms of waste trainers. There's also like now sweat bands. You can wear while working out. which to be honest honest? I feel like that would make me very uncomfortable having something really tight wrapped around my core while I'm like sweating and exercising that affect your breathing as well exactly and I'm a dive more into the possible health concerns and dangers of waste training for a long period of time so renegade. We're going to get into that later so right now. We're going to dive into pretty much. The history of women squishing our organs for beauty. And that's what you're doing when people that you are. I know and so to begin. Waste trainers again. They're a type of modern day core set that squeezes says and shapes the body to clinch the waste giving the losing the illusion of bigger hips bigger by and breath. The first course dates dates back to the late. Fifteen hundreds according to fashion time dot org since then the original design has altered quite a bit but with the same adverse health effects facts and the same purpose That comes along with clinching one's waist so this has been since the beginning of time women trying to it almost seems like you're trying to remove a rib or something for a smaller ways kind of my opinion a little bit ridiculous Traditionally corsets were called a pair of bodies or stiffened bodices stiffened bodices are displayed portrait of Venetian females around the the fifteen thirty S. And during these times the bodices were usually a part of the dress so they weren't undergarments. How they are now? They were part of the dress and during the seventeenth nineteenth century the bodice became separated and became its own garment during this time. Cortez developed a more cone style shape which was usually constructed from two pieces of fabric. which were boned? These were commonly referred. Exactly what it sounds like people they who is usually whalebone it is it's manageable bones. which is crazy? 'cause it's like why would you WanNa harm your body in that way like. Oh my God i just seems like someone comfortable and Mike how you mentioned earlier. harbory for those of you who are fans of a little house books and you know I do the Book Review Podcast so the one thing that sticks out in my brain from the very first one little house in the big woods is there at a party and Ma is talking to friends and saying that when she got married when she was seventeen. Pau Charles could span dan his waist with her hands his hands wet because of the course. So yeah I mean just think about that who knows how big his hands were but still he should not be able to put your the hands around. Someone's waste list there. I don't know three actually right about that too. I think it was in like the Guinness Book of Records Bed. You know what I'm talking talking about. Somebody's waste is how you said like you can literally have your hands touching around her waist. I'm not sure she might have had a rib or two removed. Moved very possible very possible. Young it's insane now. So as I was saying these bodices were coming commonly referred to as days and were held together at the front with the busk and then towards the end of the seventeenth century. Women wore skirts jackets with the bodice under so as I stated before it was first part of the dress. And at this time it was the back then stiffen bodices. They used your actual measurement so it was tailored to your exact body type and your measurements and as we've progressed over centuries and decades They're obviously not measured exactly to your waist size or other body measurements right and so then then. In the eighteen eighty s there was a rising popularity of the pear-shaped core set which literally bent inwards around the stomach area. During Victorian time corsets could now be mass produced due to new technology and Matt in manufacturing and these previously had to be custom made again to one's ends measurements but during World War One fashion changed and woman could look more elegant without wearing corsets which is when the tight. Lacing had disappeared heard and it's shifted more towards the elastic. The elastic took its place. which provided more movement? So thank you to whoever came up with elastic Um and okay so I'm going to jump in here again. Sorry to interrupt you but women were these when they were pregnant and yeah Which I know that there are health issues issues fifteen to the eighteen hundreds so there were health issues of all kinds? But I just can't think I can't figure that's good squash and the baby sir. You know that women were pregnant. I I've heard of women wearing waste trainers for periods of time especially after having a baby Jessica Alba did mention that supposedly due to her constantly wearing a waist trainer she was able to attain her pre baby. The body which I've never had a kid but I'm not one hundred percent. Sure if you can really get your pre baby body back one hundred hundred percent right. Yeah it just doesn't seem realistic to me. But then you shouldn't do it in six weeks leaks. Celebrities try to do. I mean come on to see. I don't take care of your body and I know we have. We have a body issue image body image issues in this country. Absolutely I agree clearly. Women have been suffering being in this uncomfortable garment for centuries and it wasn't until the nineteen twenties dot the widely desired so silhouette figure are had changed. From an hourglass to thinner figure and then during this time girdles manufactured from plastic appeared. And then the idea behind these were to control the waist and hips without constricting. 'cause like I said even way back then. Women have always had an issue with these undergarments being extremely uncomfortable. Comfortable right so think. In the twenties and thirties dresses became straighter. Like the flapper style. So you wouldn't want you know you didn't have an hourglass figure in in a flapper style style dress and so that it was it again. It's still not suitable for every body type because not everyone. Is You know kind of straight up and down like that right Psalm And then the Gore the girdle was popular instead. Of course it through the nineteen forties. So that's kind of when the credits to step back girdles girdles came up and then throughout these years course. We're still seeing for erotic. Means but it had disappeared from popular fashion and then during the nineteen seventy s the punk movement brought corsets back and these were often worn as outerwear us. punks would wear old-fashioned lingerie which I've scene even to this day not even just punk punk stars. I've seen other people wear it as like a staple fashion statement. They wear the corset over like a big white team. So I mean it comes and goes the cassettes and many designers help to bring the back. The cassette as they became part of the mainstream again pop stars like Madonna and Cyndi Lauper can be seen wearing them during the eighties and today celebrities like as I mentioned before just Alba and others can be seen bringing back the corset and the waist training craze. So it's honestly this whole subject is baffling Julia little big. Just because I'm like like women really liked to suffer. Pain is beauty is pain. That's what they said so they say but I I don't know I get a good sweat pants. I agree with you Sarah. I live in F- leisure wear sweatpants. That is that's when I feel most confident honestly so I'm not too who sure how I feel about wearing a waste. Train even heard people wearing waste trainers even when they go to sleep. That is when your body needs to rest. Yeah you you really gotTa give your body arrests sometimes. Yeah I know people who sleep in bras which I mean. Also you're supposed to the muscles in your breast need a break for underwear some. That's that's a different podcast. So we're going to go on our first quick break and when we come back we're going to discuss more about waist training. Is it safe. Does it work. So we'll be right back..
