She is not the first but her pictures are revolutionizing the social media all over the world. Kelly Lee Dekay's 16 inch waist looks TINY, but there's an even smaller, incredible world record.
The 27-year-old blue-haired Kelly Lee Dekay from New York started 'waist training' seven years ago and made achieving an hourglass figure her lifelong obsession informing the mirror magazine. Inspired by the sultry singer from Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Marvel superheroine 'Storm', the busty fetish model has shrunk her waist to a eye-watering 16 inches using a steel boned tight-laced corset.
Kelly, who studies fashion, explained:
"Growing up I just loved the exaggeration of styles and the beautiful costumes that comic book characters would wear and that led to the aesthetic that led to tight-lacing."
"I understand their measurements can't ever possibly be achieved because they would break but I think it's interesting how fabric and thread can just easily manipulate the body to do such an extreme silhouette."
Already since she was young, Kelly was a tomboy, and says that corset training helped her overcome childhood shyness.
"As a little girl I was very shy and I loved the way comic books portrayed the characters."
"I liked that Batman is actually Bruce Wayne but when he puts on the batsuit it allows him to become this vigilante."
"He was the same person but the different outfit allowed him to channel a different side of himself."
"I've always loved how certain pieces of garments gave you permission to let out certain parts of you. So I think that's what tight lacing does for me."
"I wanted to become my own super hero villain."
But waist-training is not without it's problems, and Kelly does struggle with some physical tasks. She said:
"The corset can be restrictive when going up the stairs. You can't carry too many heavy things because you could hurt yourself.
"I actually did hiking in my corset and that's very dangerous."
"I also played soft ball in a corset once, that was an interesting feeling, but I don't go to the gym in a corset - that's really dangerous because I do weight lifting."
"But if I do want to do something extreme, I don't limit myself. If I have to be out of my corset, then I'm out of it."
But despite the limitations, Kelly has no plans to hang up her corset, despite facing some negative comments online.She said:
"I get mixed reactions. Some people really love it, some people really hate it, but I always did it for myself - I didn't really do it for people's reactions."
"People say that it looks unnatural, but I have big bright blue hair - what part of me screams I want to be like everybody else?"
