It's the ridiculous (in my opinion) fad where women/girls wear tight corsets to have an unnaturally narrow waist. Didn't we learn anything in the 19th century?

Bring on the fainting couches.

I started waist training in my 5th month out from surgery. Your size of corset will change rapidly with weight loss. I'm on my third corset.

It is a body modification. We are all adults this is a choice that may not be for everyone. I like that you train for a few months and you get an hour glass figure. After not having a waist for so long it's a nice change.

I would think from a health stand point it would be a really bad idea. My Dr said that your sleeve is not completely heeled for two - three months.

The garment my daughter gave me is a latex girdle style not corset,she went from xl garment to small size garment in 90 days,so she passed them to me,which in my opinion can only support the stomach. I havr read articles about post op surgical garments,this is the same in comparison. To each his own.

I wore the spandix for the first few weeks after my surgery and it worked wonders for me, but now I am happy with my new look and I don't think this would be for me but nice to know it works for others.

Sounds like you knew the answer before you ask. Sorry you are not getting the answers that you want. But you did ask. Maybe your surgeon would be your best source of advice on this.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
