And fans are right to be concerned. According to Dr. Travis Stork of TV's The Doctors, waist training can have dire consequences for one's health.

"When you press [internal organs] inward, what can't happen? Your diaphragm, which allows your lungs to expand and contract, can't do its job," he said. "It doesn't help you lose weight. If anything, if you wear it too tight, you’re not allowing your body's natural core musculature to develop."
