The obsession is real.
“I started corset training after having twins and I was a little bit unhappy because I didn’t have the curves I thought I used to have,” Ringo said in a video interview with Barcroft TV. “So I started with the waist trainers. Once I got a little bit of a good result, I fell in love with them and I just kept reducing my waist size.
It could be damaging to the body.
"If you put them on too tight you can experience a little bit of numbing, you can experience some nerves telling you hey you gotta get it off or you gotta loosen it," she said. Ringo also has issues breathing with it. "I can breathe properly in my corsets, I just can’t take tremendous full breaths while I’m wearing it and nobody lives their lives taking tremendous full breaths." None of this sounds worth it.
Her family isn’t about it.
“My family is torn between its okay or some think I’m going to die today or maybe tomorrow,” she says. “I do value their opinion but I ultimately have to live with myself and the decisions I make are to make myself happy.”
Ringo's corset obsession doesn’t seem healthy physically or emotionally.
But to each his or her own, right? We’re just hoping it doesn't lead to any severe health issues in the future.
