Cathie Jung – World’s Smallest Waist
Torture can come in many forms. Cathie Jung has worn corsets for over 50 years resulting in a waist only 15 inches around while in her corset. This has resulted in her holding the Guinness Book of Record’s title for having the world’s smallest waist. When not in her corset, her waist is 21 inches, but she apparently usually wears a corset 24 hours a day! It should be noted that wearing corsets in such a manner can make breathing difficult and cause possible organ damage.
