Betty Brosmer.. the highest paid pin-up girl of the 1950s, considered by many as the first true supermodel. Her waist measured 18 inches, her bust 38 inches and hips 36 inches. It’s speculated she achieved her tiny waist with corset training, also known as waist training, waist reduction or tightlacing, for moulding a pronounced and significantly smaller waist, altering the shape of the ribcage in extreme cases and moving internal organs out of their original positions.
