A single mom looking to break the record for the world’s smallest waist has revealed that she wears a corset for 18 hours a day to shrink her already tiny 21.5-inch torso.
Sammy Wilson, 26, from Georgia, started waist training in April 2019 to add some curves to her frame after losing weight. She can now squeeze into a 15-inch corset, and she’s determined to shrink her 21.5-inch waist to 14 inches.
“I want to have the smallest waist in the world,” she explained. “ If I get to 14 inches, my waist will be about the size of an average newborn’s head and an inch shorter than the current world record. ”

What do you say? Sammy’s waist is 56 inches without her corset, but she wants to make it even smaller
The Guinness World Record for the smallest waist for a live person is currently held by Cathie Jung, who has a waist of 15 inches.
Just two years ago, Sammy weighed 198 pounds and wore a size 16, but she was miserable about her physique and desperate for her 35-inch waist.
The mother, who has a son, Gabriel, started losing weight in December 2018. She fell back to a slim size 6 in just four months, but she still wasn’t satisfied with her boxy waist.
After seeing the results of another woman’s waist training online, the young mother bought her very first 22-inch corset.

Sammy started waist training in April 2019 because she was not satisfied with her boxy frame after her weight loss. Now Sammy weighs 116 pounds, wears a size 00 and has a 21.5 inch waist
Plan: Sammy wants to reduce her waist to 14 inches so she can break the Guinness World Record for the smallest waist of a living person
“ When I first started, I just wanted to try and get a 20-inch corset, but once I got there I just wanted to keep going, ” she said.
Now Sammy weighs 116 pounds, wears a size 00 and has a 21.5 inch waist. To try to shrink her waist even further, she wears her 15-inch corset for 18 hours a day, and once a month lets it sit for 36 hours straight.
“Despite people’s concerns, I think it has helped my health a lot,” she said. ‘I used to have a terrible binge eating binge, but I just can’t binge eat when wearing this. It helps my posture so that I don’t get a bump when I get older and it is very good for my metabolism.
“My family has been very supportive and my friends say I am unrecognizable,” she added. ‘My mom even wants me to get her a corset. I am definitely more confident now than ever before.
Reasoning: “When you’re thin and beautiful, life is so much easier,” she said

Kickback: Sammy admitted some people will call her a ‘freak’ and ask her why she’s doing this to herself, but she’s shaking off the negativity
‘Everyone wants to be remembered for something and I just want to have something to laugh about in myself and know that no one else has done it.’
While the lab worker claims she has never felt better in her tight-fitting garment, she admitted she often faced negativity from onlookers seeing her on the street.
“ When I’m shopping, people will stare and sometimes even stop and ask me questions about how small my waist is and ask if it hurts, ” she said.
‘Some people say I’m weird, call me a freak and ugly, or ask me why I would do this to myself. But I don’t know how people can say it’s dangerous, it’s actually very comfortable.
“When you’re thin and beautiful, life is so much easier,” she added. ‘More guys want to get me out and more people notice me. I just want to see how far I can get. ‘
