Kim Kardashian has always been the trendsetter of various fashion traits, from heeled flip-flops to bike shorts, but her latest fashion trait could be injurious to the health.
This Monday, Kim Kardashian made her debut and introduced her new SKIMS waist trainer, which is available in every size (from XXS to 4X) in under 24 hours. She explained in an Instagram post that it makes her feel grabbed, video plugging the $68 style, which is inspired by the girdles she has been wearing for years.
An MD physiatrist, Dena Barsoum, that the SKIMS do not actually help to burn fat or make you thin, but they can be hazardous to health. She explained that there’s a reason that our body has such a shape. By using waist trainers, the elements in the abdomen get compressed, not only the muscle and skin but also the stomach, spleen, kidney, and intestines, which as a result, may lead to problems like indigestion and heartburn. Sometimes it can get worse as it may lead to cracked ribs and pinched nerve.
Kim Kardashian appreciated waist trainers as the ideal gift for pregnant women. Dr. Barsoum said that there could be many other ways in which the moms can regain back their original figure. The doctor suggested that women get anxious about their figure after a baby, but shedding off those extra pounds with a healthy diet and exercise is necessary.
Dr.Barsoum said everyone’s eager to lose weight and have a perfect body, so they look for a quick and easy way to achieve what they want, it could be a fad diet or a waist trainer when there are celebrities and social media influencers promoting you to buy these things people get more provoked. It also added that you couldn’t believe everything we see on Social media.
