A MUM who was worried about body fat has taken to wearing a corset 23 hours a day to reduce her waist to just 18 inches.
Diana Ringo only takes off her cincher when she showers or works out. The 5ft 2in mum of three started wearing corsets nearly three years ago after losing her figure following the birth of her four-year-old twin boys. Former Navy chef Diana, 39, said she wanted to gain her curves back the old-fashioned way to make her feel sexy again.
She said: "When I have my corset on, it makes me feel so sexy. I naturally felt so sexy, but it just boosted my self-esteem a lot more, it just makes me feel good.
"There's nothing wrong with being fat, but my fat does not distribute in a feminine way. It distributes as if I have a male body type and I don't like that shape."
Diana has over 45 corsets at home in San Diego, California, costing up to [euro]1,600 each.
