Sometimes moms struggle to look good and feel good, but one mother in San Diego has found a way to do it, though many are questioning it.
Her name is Diana Ringo and she wears a corset 23 hours a day so she can have her waist be 18 inches.
The 39-year-old explained that she started putting on waist-tightening garments three years ago following the birth of her twin boys. She liked how they made her look and took it up a notch by donning a corset.
Diana, a Navy veteran, explained, "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."
She only takes it off to shower and to work out and has built a collection of 45 corsets which she has spent nearly $2,000 on.
Ringo's husband expressed concern but after a doctor said she was healthy, he relented, though the couple agreed she wouldn't try to go even smaller.
Explaining why she does it at all, Diana stated, "This is important to me because it makes me feel good. It makes me feel sexy and I mean if I feel good and I’m happy, I go with that.”
