- Kelly Lee Dekay, 27, started ‘waist-training’ seven years ago
- The fetish model from New York claims it helped her to overcome shyness
- Kelly uses a steel boned tight-laced corset to shrink her waist
- She struggles to climb stairs and lift heavy items when she is wearing it
MOST women dream of an hourglass figure – but for Kelly Lee Dekay sculpting her waist has become an obsession.
Inspired by her favorite comic book characters, Kelly, a fetish model, has shrunk her waist to a minuscule 16 inches using a steel boned tight-laced corset.
The 27-year-old, from New York, started ‘waist training’ seven years ago after being inspired by the extreme shapes of voluptuous Jessica Rabbit and Marvel super-heroine ‘Storm’.
Think about that. She’s spent seven years of her life using a corset to essentially crush her ribcage inwards so that her waist shrinks to measure in at 16 inches.
Let’s all take a moment to collectively say HOLY SH*T.
To throw some perspective in here, Marilyn Monroe’s waist measured in at around 22 inches. This is Marilyn Monroe:
The 27-year-old, from New York, started waist training seven years ago after being inspired by the extreme shapes of voluptuous Jessica Rabbit and Marvel super-heroine Storm.
Kelly, who studies fashion, said: Growing up I just loved the exaggeration of styles and the beautiful costumes that comic book characters would wear and that led to the aesthetic that led to tight-lacing.
I like that they wore their personalities externally.
I do understand their measurements can’t ever possibly be achieved because they would break
Growing up, Kelly was a tomboy, and says that corset training has helped her to overcome childhood shyness.
She said: As a little girl I was very shy and I loved the way comic books portrayed the characters
She said: The corset can be restrictive when going up the stairs and you cant carry too many heavy things because you could hurt yourself.
I actually did hiking in my corset and thats very dangerous.
I also played soft ball in a corset once, that was an interesting feeling, but I don’t go to the gym in a corset thats really dangerous because I do weight lifting.
But if I do want to do something extreme, I don’t limit myself. If I have to be out of my corset, then I’m out of it.
I dunno guys, I’m not quite sure that this:
Quite looks like this:
Kelly states that she often gets mixed reactions, with some people loving her appearance while others hate it. However, she justifies the stares from people while in public by saying that she modified her body for herself, not for them, and therefore she gives 0 sh*ts about what people think about her appearance. F*ck the haters, Kelly, and keep on aiming for that Jessica Rabbit look. Im sure you’ll hit it at some point.
‘People say that it looks unnatural, but I have big bright blue hair – what part of me screams that I want to be like everybody else?’
