“20/20” airs program Fri., Oct. 12, 10 pm EST with segment on “My Life in a Corset: Squeezing into a New Dieting Strategy” – a corset adventure by ABC-TV reporter Deborah Roberts

ROMANTASY was pleased recently to provide an adorable custom corset (by corsetiere Jill Hoverman)  to ABC reporter Deborah Roberts (already with a svelte figure) who was game to adventure into the fun and fashionable world of corset waist training. However, we must admit we’ve been  holding our breath — more than any corset could hold it for us!

Ancient stereotypes abound about how corsets hurt or suck the breath right out of us or bend organs and break bones. Victorians called the corset an “assassin of the human race” and the front closure known as a busk,  “the torture stick.”

Yet Ms. Roberts certainly hasn’t found her experience anywhere near torture! Check out her amusing and honest blog after one week of training.

While the first few days were easy as she went about her business in New York City,  longer hours of training brought out some crankiness and longing for the end of the prescribed period of wear.  Ms. Roberts learned an early lesson to adjust her program and rest her body after she developed some skin tingling in her hip area.  We advised her to take the corset off for two days, but she only had to rest for one, and was right back at it.

An unyielding structured garment is certainly a far cry from Lycra-laced loose fashions to which we’ve become accustomed, and the body needs a bit of time to adjust to new sensations. Gone about it sensibly as Ms. Roberts is doing, corsets readily bestow constant gentle “hugs” that are appreciated by many.

Ms. Roberts is apparently the talk or the curiosity of her ABC-TV women colleagues,  some of whom “upon hearing about the possibility of weight loss, are deeply interested.”

We admire her commitment to give the program her best possible effort. As we like to say, “the program works — if you work it! (and assuming common sense and respect for your body’s messages). Read more about waist training.

Ms. Roberts is reporting on her adventure on the program “20/20” set to air on Friday, October 12 at 10 pm EST. We hope you can check local programming and catch the segment filmed in our San Francisco Corset Salon. The friendly lighting and sound crew also seemed to enjoy being among curvy ladies and corsets (seen above right)! (Initial photo of Ms. Roberts and Ann, courtesy of ABC-TV)

    I watched it. It’s very inspiring. How do I start this program?
    Thank you

    • Hello Benie,
      I’ve very happy you saw the “20/20” show on corset waist training! You would get started by reviewing a page I will send you from our website, to help navigate and understand the options before you order. An underbust corset will be needed, likely fully custom and we can help with measurements, even if you are long distance and can’t attend an in-person fitting in San Francisco. Please do check your email soon for that information, let me know more about your goals, what figure silhouette you desire, your budget, and then we can go from there! Education first is our motto and I will personally guide you to the right corset for your needs! All best, Ann

    The program was nicely done. I completely enjoyed it. My waist went from 42 inches to now 33 inches after diet/exercise and of course Corset magic!
