Emma Jane Woodhams is a fitness influencer and reality star. Woodhams recently shared a photo of herself wearing a waist trainer. The blogger boasted the waist trainer as a healthy alternative to Brazilian butt lift surgery. However, she did so while referencing a recent news story about Leah Cambridge, a 29-year-old mother who died while receiving the operation. Many felt that the blogger was exploiting the tragic death of a young woman to sell waist trainers.
Much like how corsets deformed the bodies of Victorian era women, waist trainers do the same to modern women. This process is known as "tightlacing."
Regardless of how you feel about waist trainers, using a mother's death to sell them is not a good look?
