Cinch that waist, girls!

corset-1330096One way of adopting a more feminine figure is to cinch one’s waist so as to give the appearance of real female curves. It’s a practice that has been commonly used by drag queens for many years, and of course has been used by some in the female to male transgender community in order to better pass as a woman on a day to day basis.

The practice of corseting  can trace its history as far back as the early sixteenth century. It has of course been used by women to accentuate their slim waists and achieve that most feminine of outlines right up to the modern day. I’ve read that the average waist size for a woman due to corseting at the height of the practice was as small as twenty-two inches! This also came with a high price of course, apart from the general discomfort associated with being corseted so severely, the ribs and indeed spine would suffer deformities when long term corseting from an early age was inflicted.

There is still a niche following of those who love nothing more than to indulge in waist training. To train their bodies into adopting a more pinched waistline over time in a bid to emulate such classic looks as those epitomised by the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Jane Mansfield and the more modern stars such as Scarlett Johansson.

I don’t of course advise anyone to inflict such suffering upon themselves in order to achieve an unrealistically sized waist measurement, but a less severe form of cinching can in fact help to acheive a more feminine appearance for those who seek to do so.

That hourglass figure so adored by many is often seen as the epitome of the female form, and with the simple addition of a basic waist cincher, you can transform your basic shape into one of a more feminine outline in mere moments. The addition of such an undergarment doesn’t even have to lead you into any great expense, and it’ll even help those fitted little black dresses look even more sexy on you than before!

If you haven’t tried one before, give it a go. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised by the results, but don’t expect it to go entirely unnoticed, after all, there are many men that are far more attracted to girls with womanly curves than some in the fashion industry would have you believe!
