A WOMAN who started wearing corsets under her school uniform has spent £1,200 and has reduced her waist to a tiny 18 inches.
Raquel Skellington first started wearing the tight corsets at just 13 years old after cruel class bullies dubbed her “duck butt”  because of a curve in her spine which made her bottom stick out.

But eight years on the New Yorker – who no longer suffers with back problems – practices tight-lacing, which has seen her be able to reduce her waist by five inches.
The 20-year-old said: “I started wearing corsets when I was quite young as my spine was like a ‘J’, not an ‘I’, so my butt stuck out and people made fun of me.
“I did my research and talked to my mum, Lynnette, who works as a nurse, and she gave me her blessing.
“I began wearing a corset under my school uniform. It helped to give me support, forced me to stand up straight and brought my bum in.

“It didn’t hurt and my friends would say I was wearing my armour.”
But, just two years later, Raquel fell off her bike on a camping trip, fracturing her lower spine, dislocating her left shoulder, knee and hip and suffering cuts.
She added: “Doctors said I might not be able to walk properly once I healed, and would probably have a limp.”
After 36 hours in hospital Rachel returned to camp, where she spent a further ten days recovering.
Once back home, she decided to put her corset back on, hoping it would realign everything and give her extra support, helping her heal.
“I did this without anyone recommending it, but I knew it had helped my back before,” she explained.
“About six months later my doctor said if I hadn’t been wearing it, then I might not have healed and would have had a limp.”

Although she started wearing a corset for medical reasons, she soon got into modelling them for fun and built up a collection of 12.
Her most expensive cost around £228, but she usually splurges around £130 a piece.
She’s been getting in to the practice of tight lacing – wearing a tightly laced corset to reduce the waist circumference.
But at 16 she followed in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian and began waist training – wearing increasingly smaller sized corsets overtime, in order to be left with a reduced waistline.
From there she moved on to tight lacing, which brings the waist in by several inches in one go, but the wearer only endures this for a short length of time.
She has now reduced her waist size by FIVE inches to 18 inches – around 16 inches smaller than the UK national average, for women.

She said: “My natural waist is 23 inches, and my first tight-lace corset was 20. I can go to 18 now. My body is used to that reduction after 18 months of tight lacing.
“But 18 inches is the most I’ll go. It gets to a point where I can’t lace any further.
“This looks aesthetically pleasing and it’s not extreme.”
Raquel added that her boyfriend, Will Stephenson, also 20, who is studying robotic engineering in Manchester, thinks her corsetry is cool and attractive.
She also insists that it has never hurt as she has grown used to it over time.

“It’s like wearing new hiking boots – you need to break a corset in like boots,” she said.
“Some girls say they hurt and people ask how can you breathe, but if you get a made to measure corset it fits right and you don’t feel it.
“I want to stress that it shouldn’t hurt at all, if you wear the proper size and go slowly, moving to smaller sizes, and are aware of your body and what it can take.”
Although there are myths around corsets, like that they break ribs, for Raquel, there haven’t been any negative effects.

She continued: “My organs are intact, I’m not shifting anything around, I have no shortness of breath.
“I can exercise. I’m into LARPing – fantasy live action role-play – and wear one when I play a healer and run around in it then.
“There is such a thing as too small. You need to balance your top and bottom.
“I’m very small, short, thin, I’m blessed with a top and hips so I can go to extremes without looking freakish but people are like, ‘You look great’.”
