A Playboy model wears a corset for 24 hours a day in order to shrink her waist.
Iasmin Santos was inspired to try the body-cinching device after seeing Kim Kardashian wearing one.
The 27-year-old, originally from Brazil, models herself on another curvy idol too.
She’s often compared to a “real life Barbie doll” thanks to her hourglass figure.
Iasmin said: “I get a lot of inspiration from Kim Kardashian – my dream is to have the same body as hers.
“But for now I'm focusing on my waist and I believe we are almost the same. And about being compared to a doll, who doesn't (like it)?”
Iasmin, who is spending lockdown in London, won’t let the coronavirus pandemic get in the way of her glamorous looks.
She recently posed in a dress covered in 10,000 Swarovski crystals, which apparently cost her more than £16,000.
The model, who has appeared on the front cover of Playboy Spain, has also been spending her free time focusing on her appearance.
She’s spent more time exercising and honing her look.
Iasmin said: "I'm going through my third lockdown here in London, and being stuck at home makes us want to change, change the colour of hair, change food, training, routine".
While fans may be tempted to copy Iasmin by wearing a corset for prolonged periods, this isn’t actually advisable.
Waist trainers are typically made from thick and stretchy fabric designed to pull your body in.
Some believe they help them to achieve an hourglass figure.
But experts have warned that the trend can be a dangerous one.
A 2018 study found that waist training can make it more difficult to breathe.
Meanwhile, American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) says the extreme corsets can reduce lung capacity.
Other believed side-effects include weakened core, problems with the pelvic floor, organ damage and unpleasant digestive problems.
