Kylie Jenner may have given birth sixty days ago to her little girl Stormi Webster, but she’s already thinking about her summer body. In an Instagram post, Kylie Jenner shared a throwback photo of herself in a swimsuit and captioned it “summer goals.” The picture revealed her tiny waist which didn’t go unnoticed by fans. Jenner recently found herself in the midst of a controversy after sharing a picture of herself in a waist trainer. Many women were concerned that the waist trainer was not recommended for post-partum use and suggested that Jenner wear a belly wrap specifically designed for new mothers.
The bikini photo of Kylie Jenner has received more than 7.4 million likes and over 298 thousand comments. Kylie’s photo of her wearing the waist trainer received more than 5 million likes and over 355 thousand comments. Though Kylie often gets thousands of positive comments some fans took issue with her wearing and promoting the waist trainer.
New mothers should seek their doctor’s advice before wearing something as restrictive as a waist trainer. One of the issues that the Internet had with Kylie’s wearing a waist trainer was the fact that she wore it as soon as she was six weeks post-partum.
Some people also questioned the waist trainers effectiveness as well as its safety.
The controversy surrounding Kylie Jenner and the waist trainer drew input from healthcare practitioners and those in the fitness industry.
One of the most common responses was that waist trainers, though effective for a short period of time, do not necessarily permanently change the size or shape of the waist. The issue was raised that if the waist trainer was taken off, the stomach would return to its normal size.
The argument was also made that there haven’t been any studies that concluded waist trainers were effective. Some voiced concern that if waist trainers were too tight, they could actually be harmful to the new mother.
It doesn’t seem that Kylie Jenner has heeded the warnings and decided to ditch the waist trainers.
What do you think of Kylie’s summer goals? Do you think she’s going to keep wearing the waist trainer?
