ouch

Apparently this is what corsets do to your organs:

Can rearranging organs cause internal damage?

  1. While corsets do rearrange your organs, it is no more harmful than pregnancy really, which does the same thing but in a different configuration and with more hormones. (and a baby...)

    Organs are designed to be able to move around a bit, and the only thing that can happen internal organ wise if corsets are worn too tight for too long, is that the liver can end up with a groove through the middle from where the ribs press against it. It doesn't seem to impair function any though.

    A fascinating, if long article on the subject can be found here: http://haabet/patent/The_corset/index.html
