Rib Cage Reduction

 
7/23/2012
I`ve read many articles on how to ruduce your rib cage size permanantly. Aside from having the lower rib removed surgically which is a radical procedure used by fully transitioning transgenders, I`ve read that using a tight corset will create a more hour glass shape to the male torso over time. I believe I read that Rue Paul used this method early on. I`m very satisfied with the femininity of my legs, my ass, my waist, (when I`m in shape) my neck face & arms. The one thing that I`m self consious about is my torso. When wearing clothing I will use a corset or a wide belt to give the illusion of a small female waist line, but as you`ve all probably noticed, I prefer to be as naked as possible in my pics and vids. Has anyone else heard of the binding-corset method or any other techniques to re-shape the rib cage to a more feminine shape? And no, surgurey is NOT an option for me.

Hugs, Debbie.

i have noticed that with the hormones i have been taking that my hips are starting to take on a more feminine curve to them. i dont plan on having anything done to my rib cage, but i will be going through what is known as feminine facial modification along with vocal chord modification, and i will be considering breast enhancment. the most radial surgery i am going to have done is the big step when i have my sexual reasignment surgery done. i'm have mine done by marcy bowers in california who is the worlds leading srs surgeon. oh yeah, i plan on corset training in the very near future too... hugs... susan

Since I`m not going to fully transition, (SRS) and only want to more feminize my body, I`m in the process of deciding weather to go with hormones for natural breasts, (I did it for a while in 2005 and got very good and rapid results, but ran out of money) or just go for breast implants. My body did become more shapely on hormones but I have a minor heart condition and hormones may no longer be an option for me. I`m looking for a good doctor locally to discuss this with now. If I go with implants, then I`ll need more artificial means for shaping my figure. So far, although incredibally uncomfortable and slow, corset training is looking like my best option. TY so much for responding, and I wish you well with your transition.

Hugs & Kisses, Debbie.

From what I've read a tightlaced corset is about the only thing that can really do it. I love mine!!!

Thanks Vicky. That seems to be the consensus.

Hugs, Debbie

yeah debs corsets and they also have body shaper type corsets that are soft and go well with tight dresses, slim your waist line very well. most people dont even know you have it on. youll find it online or at one of those mom and pop lingerie stores.

Corsets and other body shaping devices can and do make lasting changes in body shape, but they do take some time -- perhaps years before achieving the shape you want -- depending upon how aggressive your objectives are. Comparative studies of the human body over different time periods showed that women in the 19th century had more of the "wasp-waist" look as the result of frequent (sometimes nearly constant) use of tight corsets.

Lovely ladies, I have admired many of your pictures and I know that many of you are your very toughest critics. Use corsets if you wish, but know that your many charms already make you nearly irresistible to men! Remember that a big smile on your face will enchant a man long before your less visible charms are shared!

Hey Debbie,
If you are considering getting a corset, corsetdeal.com has a great selection. I have not bought one for myself yet only because from what I understand a GOOD corset is pricey. I don't want to cut corners when it comes to cutting the waist.

View External Link has some really nice corsets, and the real kind, not like most that carry those kind that mimic the real thing

Thanks Suzy. I`ll check it out. And thankyou too Samantha. I have Corsetdeal.com short-cutted on my desktop. You`re right, they do have some great stuff.

Look up "tightlacing" or "extreme corseting" on Google. Yes, corsets can change the shape of your body, if worn long enough. I've even noticed my waist got smaller after wearing a corset for a few months straight. It does get uncomfortable though.

Thanks Cyndi. I`ll look that up. It looks like I found the perfect waist training corset at corsetchic.com. Thanks again for the lead.

Steel boned corset. Eat healthy, drink plenty of water and wear your corset as much as possible and you WILL mold your body. It really isn't that hard to transform your body into being more feminine. Remember to be conscience of proper posture, avoiding the allowance to relax your belly to that of a keg of beer.

Aerobics & exercises that contribute to high metabolism will deal with the slimming on the inside, Then using your corset is easier and easier until its time to get a tighter one, a joyful purchase as a lovely reward for thinking and living as feminine as you care to choose. The greatest reward will simply be acknowledging how good you look in the mirror. All that determination, without a doubt is worth every moment of sweat and dedication you put into it.

Be the lady your eyes desire.

Thanks Sweets. I did a lot of research and your advice is completely correct. The biggest thing is to do it gradually to prevent internal organ damage and heart and lung stress. From everything I`ve learned, I`m ready to start and do it with patience and determination. Besides, the corset will probably help me with my lower back problem by providing support and improving my posture. A nice added bonus.

Hugs & Kisses, Debbie.

I have to make a correction on the above corset website I provided. It`s:
www.corsechick.com
Check it out, they have outstanding prices and their products are fair to good in quality. They have a very good and easy to use return / exchange policy and a nice selection of corsets and other clothing. they also offer good specials frequently. I enrolled to their mailing list and get special offers a few times per week.

Hugs, Debbie.

OK girls. I just wanted to update you all on some things I`ve learned about corset training. BE VERY CAREFUL if you`re thinking of doing this. There are health risks accossiated with this that I wouldn`t have imagined, Everything fom heart, lung and liver problems to actually cutting off your blood circulatin to some major arteries causing some serious long term damage. PLEASE, if you`re going to do this, research it very thoroughly and consider any existing risk factors with your health, including getting a good physical to see if you have any unknown health problems that could pose a problem. In my case it turns out that I`m at risk because I have a known heart condition called Rapid Atrial Fibrillation. Wearing a corset to tightly can actually trigger my firillation and cause a stroke. (The biggest risk with my condition even without a corset) It can be done safely, but definately educate yourself before you begin.

Hugs, Debbie.

I second what Debbie is saying. The corsets are where the stereotype of the woman who is always swooning comes from. Women would always be swooning back when everyone wore corsets, not because they were frail or weak, but because their corsets made it harder to breathe. If you do try corsets, don't go too tight. Make sure you can actually breathe and move comfortably while wearing it.

That`s correct Cyndi. In some more extreme cases the fainting was also caused by the blood flow to the brain being so restricted. There`s a major artery, (not the aorta) that becomes restricted which not only leads to fainting, but also causes the heart to over-work and become enlarged. Corsetry can be done safely, but it must be studied and done very carefully and gradually. (Over years)
