A model wears a corset 23 hours a day so she can have a small waist.
Aleira Avendano from Caracas, Venezuela, has been wearing the waist-training device for six years and has admitted she is “completely obsessed” with it, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.
She said: “I am completely obsessed with belts and corsets – I even sleep with them on.
“I love the feeling of pressure and only take it off for an hour a day to rest and to wash myself.”
Aleira’s waist size is currently just 20 inches.
