Since you don't live under a rock, you probably know that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting married next month. But while we're curious to know the details of the ceremony, we're not so thrilled about Kim's latest slim-down strategy. This week, a source told Grazia magazine that Kim is wearing a corset at night in order to prep for the big day.
"Kim wants her figure to look absolutely perfect on her wedding day," the source reportedly said. "Wearing a corset at night is extremely uncomfortable but has a proven record of results. And with six weeks to go, Kim is up for anything."
Kim's not the first celebrity to wear a corset in an attempt to slim down, either. Jessica Alba admitted to wearing one in the past to lose her baby weight. Well, we told you then, and we'll tell you again now: This is a terrible, terrible idea. Not only does it not work—experts say it makes "no medical sense whatsoever"—but it's also actually unsafe. It can cause acid reflux, for starters, and it can disrupt healthy breathing patterns. Plus, it makes it super hard to, um, squeeze in your workout. (Can you evenimagine hitting the treadmill in one of those things?)
