Woman Eats One Meal a Day, Wears Corset Every Day for Extreme Hourglass Figure

A young Vietnamese-born woman has gone to extreme lengths to shrink her waist to just 46 centimeters in circumference, including eating just one meal a day and wearing a corset almost all the time.

An Ky, a part-time dancer living in the United States, was discovered by popular Vietnamese entertainer Thuy Nga, during the latter’s American tour, las winter. While visiting a milk tea cafe where Ky happened to be working, the Vietnamese comedian and television personality noticed the young girl’s incredibly tiny waist and decided to do a video about it. She showcased the young woman’s tiny waist and also asked her a few questions about how she managed to get her waist circumference down to a whopping 46 centimeters and how she maintains the extreme hourglass figure.

Apparently, the part-time dancer had always coveted a wasp-like silhouette with a tiny waist that emphasized her hips and chest, and she was willing to put in the work to achieve it. At age 18, when she decided to make a change, she weighed over 50kg, with a waist circumference more than 60cm, but today she weighs a measly 37 kg, which seems rather unhealthy.

To get her waist circumference down in size, 26-year-old An Ky went from eating three meals per day to just one, and sometimes even one meal every two days. Moreover, she stopped eating starchy foods 2 years ago and also wears a tight corset around her waist every day, only taking it off during the night.

Asked whether she was worried about the health impact of her diet, An Ky said that she eats lots of vegetables, chicken breast and fruits, so she never feels weak. The one problem she complained about was the necessary adjustments she needs to make when buying new pants. Because of her tiny waist, the pants need to be tightened too, and that can sometimes be “more expensive than the pants themselves”.

Thuy Nga’s video was posted on YouTube back in January, but it only recently went viral after screenshots of An Ky’s waist went viral on social media. Generally, the feedback from the public has been negative, with many claiming that her look was unnatural, and some warning that tightening her waist so tight could have a negative effect in her internal organs in the long run.


While An Ky’s 46-centimeter waist is extremely small, it’s pails in comparison with the waist of Burmese student Su Ning, who claimed to have a waist circumference of only 13.7 inches (34.8 cm).
