Michelle Ng is a bilingual writer and English writing coach based in Hong Kong. She is enthusiastic about vintage hair and cheongsam and is interested in using corsets to train her already tiny waist. She writes about culture and politics using the name Wu Ruoqi (吳若琦) and is currently studying for a university degree.
She has been waist training since August 2016 and mentions that her lower belly seems to protrude and thinks it is because her lower rib cage and her waist have become smaller by the waist training. Before corseting, her uncorsetted waist was 22 inches, and by 2018 it had shrunk to 21 inches. She tightened the corset slowly, didn’t feel any pain, and “taught” her ribs to get used to being compressed. She is now used to the sensation and finds it mildly pleasurable and comfortably wears 20” corsets – measured OVER the corset – which means that the inside measurement is about 18 inches.
