Biermann is giving new meaning to suck it in!
Kim Zolciak’s teenage daughter has joined her mother in the waist training fad. She posted a photo of herself in a blue waist trainer, a corsetlike contraption that is worn to cinch the core and mold the waist into a slimmer figure.
She captioned the post, “Yes! #waisttraing [sic] with the #waistgangsociety @premadonna87 @waistgangsociety Wow it’s so comfy and my frame feels and looks amazing already make sure you get yours at www.whatsawaist.com bringing in the New Year right!!”
Naturally, her followers have weighed in with concerned and, sometimes maternal, comments.

Medical experts have said these waist trainers can be hazardous to your health. The device can decrease core strength, contribute to heartburn and push against your lungs and ribs, which makes breathing difficult. Extended use of waist trainers can reportedly lead to compressed lungs and fractured ribs.
Biermann is a beautiful, young girl who doesn’t need to be do something this extreme, especially because it’s not healthy. It’s not a good message to send to young girls who idolize Biermann. Teenage girls have enough body issues and the last thing they need is to waist train.
You’re only 18 once, Brielle Biermann. Enjoy it!
