She is the mother of three children and married to Bob, an
orthopedic surgeon. Cathie Jung's unfathomably dainty waist
of 15 inches, is unique. The Guinness Books of World Records
has inquired about it. Several times Cathie and Bob flew to
Tokyo in Japan for quest appearances for the Japanese TV.
In the U.S.A. and Western Europe they were also guests in TV
Cathie and Bob like to dress up in Victorian formal wear.
They are fond of the elegant of this style of wear and are
fond of cultivating and popularizing the wasp-waist.
possible, they visit every year the ball organized by the

ladies with tiny waists.

|Of course Cathie is wearing her corset, as she has for
virtually every hour of the day and night for the last 20
years. The only time that she is not wearing the corset is
probably the hour it takes her to shower and dry herself
Cathie is devoted to corset training, or what she also calls
Cathie was married in a corset 42 years ago, and though she
wore one on occasion during early motherhood, she did not
pursue the exquisitely hour-glassed figure of yesteryear
until her children were beyond the age of being embarrassed.
Her uncorseted waist today is 21 inches around. It was 28
inches when she began to be reconfigured artificially and
With a normal waist of 28 inch you start with a corset of 25
inch. When you get comfortable you go to a 24-inch corset.
Then a new one two inches smaller. Cathie is now to a
15-inch corset. Cathie is 5-foot-6 and weight 135 punds.
She owns more then 25 different corsets, some of cotton
brocades and others of Chinese silk. Leather is also
comfortable and wears well. Under the corset she is wearing
a camisole or a chemise. Powder is also important.
and Bob met at Tufts University, where Bob earned an
undergraduate degree and attended medical school. Cathie
studied biology at Tufts.
Cathie has suffered no ill effects from wearing a corset
virtually 24 hours a day for the last 20 years. In fact, it
has bolstered her spinal support. Bob Jung says: "As for the
ribs, you would be surprised by how much the chest is not
impacted. Only the two lower ribs, but those are the
s0-called floating ribs, two on each side. Everything in the
middles is flexible. The bowed and the stomach are hollow.
One concern is dry skin and keeping the corset clean. The
bidet is for Cathie a real blessing in the wintertime, when
you don't need to shower every day. Showering all the time
dries out the skin.
Cathie, as a young girl, spelled her nickname with an "ie"
instead of a "y" because the latter letter descended to the
next line and got in the way of her writing.
Cathie never has had surgery to help attain her waist. But
it is not just about the waist size. It is the illusion that
matters. The difference between the hips and the waist, the
chest and the waist. It is all about accentuating the
natural and beautiful curves of the female figure.

The diet of Cathie is pretty normal. She feels full or
satisfies very quickly but she enjoys it very much to visit
