90 Day Fiance star Larissa Lima is feeling herself these days. She loves to use Instagram to post selfies. But there’s one photo that fans don’t like, and it features a waist trainer. This comes a few months after she shut down the butt implant rumors on social media.
Larissa has been working out at the gym and it shows. She shared her weight loss transformation on Instagram. But some fans don’t like that she’s promoting a controversial weight loss product. The waist trainer can give the wrong impression, especially on her young fans. Read on to learn about the latest controversy.
90 Day Fiance fans come for Larissa Lima for promoting waist trainer
90 Day Fiance alum Larissa Lima is getting roasted by fans after she shared her waist training journey. It all started on Tuesday, April 7 when she took to Instagram to post a photo of herself wearing a tight black corset. Earlier that month, she admitted that she wanted to give the device a try.
“I’ll show all my progress! I strongly suggest for everyone that wants to try something new,” the 33-year-old wrote, dropping the hint to her followers.
She has taken an interest in tight lacing, according to In Touch Weekly. That involves gradually tightening her corset over an extended period of time to reduce her waist size. 90 Day Fiance fans aren’t on board with this idea. Some of it called the practice “unhealthy and dangerous.”

Today I'm starting my journey of waist training/tight lacing in few months I'll show all my progress!I strongly suggest for everyone that wants to try something new. I want to do a wow ! in my waist and it will help me a lot! 💡What is Tightlacing/ Waist training? ➡️ tightlacing is to gradually lacing your corset tighter over an extended period of time in order to dramatically shrink the size of your waist ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ➡️ tightlacers might go on diets to assist with the weight loss and waist trimming process. Like other waist trainers, they will often focus on portion control, eating several smaller meals rather than a few big ones and eliminating foods known to cause bloating such as refined carbohydrates (white breads, cookies, cakes, and white rice) and soda ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➡️Extreme waist trainers may also follow an exercise program focused on the core and abdominal muscles, in order to strengthen them and allow them to work as hard as possible during the time spent corseted. As it is not recommended to exercise in a traditional corset, due to the possibility of warping or snapping the steel bones, even tightlacers typically switch to a latex cincher or leave the waist trainer off when they hit the gym ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➡️The major areas in which tightlacing differs from standard waist training are both related to duration. In order to achieve dramatic results as quickly as possible, many tightlacers will wear their corsets for longer than the 8-10 hours per day which our waist training guides recommend
Larissa’s Instagram post sparked a debate on social media. Some accused the TLC star of hurting her organs. Other fans claimed that Larissa is already beautiful and doesn’t need a waist trainer. Larissa has taken note of the backlash. She said that she’s done her research and it’s good enough for her.
“I study and read everything about cons and pros … thank you,” she responded to one fan.
The Brazilian model also asked her followers to respect the “seasoning process.” She said that it’s normal for women to break into their corsets. Larissa has been spending more time at home due to the lockdown. She wants to launch an OnlyFans account, create hair and makeup tutorials, and work on “making [her] American dreams come true.”
Larissa wants to focus on putting her health first
The television personality is putting her health first during this quarantine. She has been showing off her new physique all over her Instagram account. Larissa credits exercise for improving her body as well as her mental health. Of course, it led some 90 Day Fiance fans to wonder if she got plastic surgery done to enhance her looks.
She’s also been honest about her love of plastic surgery. It makes her feel better about herself. Larissa argued that if she’d gotten a Brazilian Butt lift, she would have announced it by now on social media. She continues to be honest about her mental health and plastic surgery journey.
