15-Inch Waist
Status: Real
image The picture to the right has not been photoshopped (would that it had). That woman's waist really is that thin. She's Cathie Jung, who holds the title in the Guinness Book of World Records for the Smallest Waist on a Living Person:

Cathie Jung's waist is about the same size as a regular jar of mayonnaise. She's been wearing a corset every day for the past 12 years, and she now wears one 24 hours a day. "I probably have around 100 of them," says the corset queen.

The pictures of Cathie remind me of the Stomach-Sucked-In picture I posted earlier this year. (via The Presurfer)

To Elizabeth L on page 3... She's like 70 years old, so I don't think she can die young because of her corset.

What a gorgeous waistline! Mine's 17, but I'd love to be 15 like Cathie!

This woman is gorgeous and for real. I saw her back in the late 80s at a Dressing for Pleasure ball. She's the ultimate erotic turn-on. Every man should be so lucky as to get his woman to agree to such tight-lacing.

Wow, that is just freakily hourglassed. It's LITERALLY an hourglass shape. o-o I don't understand how it can be a turn on for some of you guys. I think Mayra Veronica looks much better, and she's a 36-23-36, so her body curves in naturally and not as sharp.

Can Cathie Jung digest anything? Wouldn't her vital organs be crushed from all the squeezing?

Ew! This is quite disturbing. She looks like she can break in half! And her arms look like nothing but skin and bones! Why anyone would want to push their body to this point is beyond me.
