50s pin up Betty Brosmer and Nerina Orton (and the trend for tiny waists)

1950s pinup Betty Brosmer tiny waist

I saw a newspaper article yesterday about student and part-time Burlesque dancer Nerina Orton and her tiny 15.7″ waist and it reminded me of 50s pin up and model Betty Brosmer.  Her waist was 18″, which is definitely tiny, but it made me realise just how small Nerina’s waist is. Apparently the world record for the tiniest waist is 15″, so you don’t get much smaller than that! Apparently Nerina spends 23 hours a day in her corset and only takes it off to shower – now that’s commitment (you can see photos here)!

What do you think about corseting and tiny waists? Is it something you do? If so, I’d love to know! If you’d like to find out more about waist training you can in our article here.

    She is very pretty, but her waist is too much of a good thing! Meaning her waist looks super weird! Too small, making her look freakish, to me anyhow.

      I would agree with you. The proportions are too extreme and look very un-natural. And although I like a skinny waist just as much as the next guy, to me it doesn’t leave her looking sexy, just weird.

    Desolution of my marriage was final in August, 2020. I turned 59 in April, 2021. I have just recently started waist training. I am rocking 37-24-37, cosetted of course. Goal….. 36-22-36 :))
