Kim Zolciak took to Instagram to show off her teensy tiny midsection, which she’s crediting to a waist trainer. There’s no doubt that the mom of six is in shape, but is she being unsafe?
Kim Zolciak, 37, posted on Instagram, that she’s using a trainer garment to shed extra inches from her already trim waist. The photo shows an almost unnaturally skinny midsection squeezed in by the plum trainer. You look good Kim, but are you taking care of yourself?
‘Lost 4 inches from wearing my waist trainer from @nowaistclique,” Kim captioned her Instagram on June 8 . “Ladies join in on this journey with me use promo code:Kim15 to receive 15% off..tell them I sent you!!!#nowaistclique.”
Four inches off your waist is nothing to sneeze at — especially for someone who was already pretty tiny. The photo shows Kim hanging out in her house, wearing a comfy-casual outfit over her waist trainer. Nobody could ever guess that Kim is a mother of six, could they? But while she favors glamour and loves to knock a hater down a notch with a selfie or two, Kim needs to be careful.
Wearing waist trainers are favored by curvy stars like Amber Rose, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, who work hard to maintain their hourglass figures, but many doctors warn that wearing the devices (which function much like corsets), are dismal for your health. I would caution against using such a devise to an extreme,” top physician Dr. Feingold told HollywoodLife.
“Our abs are an essential element to the stabilization of our entire body, especially our spines. It is not only ineffective to depend on an outside force for a false sense of security, but downrightdangerous depending on the exercise being performed,” DavidBartonGym trainer Matthew Griffin told us. “Our abs stabilize our body because we engage them. If a corset is used to only mimic the shape of a toned midsection without actually using our muscles, the result is a false sense of strength and muscular engagement. It is much more effective, for both visual and health purposes, to work your abs (correctly) on their own- without an outside force providing an infrastructure that should be created through muscular contraction.”
You heard it here! Protect yourself, Kim, and weigh the true cost of wearing waist trainers! We think you’re gorgeous just the way you are, and don’t want you to risk your health.
