Totally Obscene! Kim Kardashian’s Impossibly Tiny Waist at the 2024 Met Gala Draws Heavy Criticism by Some

All eyes were on Kim Kardashian as she strutted down the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala. While the reality star and entrepreneur stunned in her fabulous gown, many fans were concerned about her waist.

The 43-year-old star opted for an elaborate John Galliano for Maison Margiela gown that dramatically accentuated her midriff.

The silver ensemble consisted of a metallic corset bodysuit paired with a sheer maxi skirt adorned with delicate floral accents. Her remarkably small waist was clearly visible in the tight-fitting outfit.

Thanks to an extremely tight, silver Maison Margiela corset, the reality star flaunted her almost impossibly tiny waist and enviable figure at the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here MailOnline explains the science behind Kim Kardashian ‘s ‘golden ratio’ and the bizarre things some women have done in an attempt to achieve a similar look in history.

Shocked fans and critics alike took to social media to question where her waist was in the outfit with some even wondering if the star had had her ribs removed.

Kim has previously promoted weight training binders that medics have warned are dangerous. Hazards of such devices include breathing difficulties, constipation, and even organ damage caused by the body being contorted into unnatural shapes.

But she is far from the only woman to go to extreme lengths to achieve that mythical golden ratio that science claims drives men wild — a tiny waist and wide hips.

In fact, she is part of a centuries-old obsession of women intentionally altering their bodies in pursuit of that much pined for hourglass figure.

Despite the modern makeover and different materials, many of the same dangers remain.

They can cause breathing difficulties by pushing the stomach into the diaphragm, a muscle below the lungs critical to respiration. This can, doctors warn, potentially restrict the flow of oxygen.

Kim once revealed she had to undertake corset breathing lessons to fit into a figure-hugging dress by Thierry Muglern in 2019, which took eight months to complete and was made to look as though she was dripping diamonds.
