As you probably already know, lots of celebrities endorse products on Instagram, and some of them are very well compensated for it.
Curiously, products that promise to tone your midsection are among the most commonly shilled, and dozens of reality stars cash in by pretending they owe their physiques to "flat-tummy teas" and, of course, waist-trainers:
If you're not familiar with waist training, it's the practice of squeezing one's organs into a corset-like contraption in hopes of forcing them into a more pleasing shape.
As you can see, Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is a proponent - or at least she's getting paid to pretend she is.
Kailyn has posted waist training pics before, for we were secretly hoping that she was done selling overpriced, ineffective crap to her millions of followers, most of whom are young and impressionable.
But no, like the "Damn, Daniel" kid, she's back at it again.
And as usual, she stuck to the corporate script for her caption:
"My waist has never looked so tiny! I wear mine 6 hrs daily & I exercise in mine. Ladies summer is coming! Get yours today, you'll be so amazed at the results."
Yeah, ladies! Summer is coming, so make sure you compress yourself into some leopard-printed Scarlet O'Hara torture device so that you can smush your pancreas out of existence.
The 24-year-old mother of two has lost a lot of weight in recent weeks, to the point that there were rumors about Kailyn struggling with an eating disorder.
We don't believe that's the case, but we also don't think waist training has anything to do with her new physique.
We're pretty sure Kailyn shed some pounds through the old-fashioned combo of diet and exercise.
Oh, and her wildly expensive butt lift also has a lot to do with her new shape.
