This can't be healthy. That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the pictures.

When you read "16 inch waist", it is hard to conceive until you see the pictures. How this woman got it is even more interesting.

I guess wearing a corset really can help.

According to the Daily News...

She started with a waist of about 25 inches. Her three years of wearing a corset, which she wears eating, sleeping and even swimming, has left her with a 16- or 17- inch waist.
