The 30-year-old posted a snap to Instagram, revealing her extremely tiny waist.

While she insisted it made her feel like a ‘superhero’, Khloe’s use of a waist trainer has been branded dangerous.

She wrote excitedly: “I am obsessed with my new waist shaper!!!! I mean how cute is this shaper?!?! Snatching my waist and looking cute all at the same time!!! I definitely feel like a superhero in this waist shaper!”

But a fitness expert has claimed that using the tool could be doing Khloe more harm than good, and advised she stops trying to achieve an ‘unnatural’ shape.

Matthew Griffin told Hollywood Life: “Our abs are an essential element to the stabilisation of our entire body, especially our spines.

“It is not only ineffective to depend on an outside force for a false sense of security, but downright dangerous on the exercise being performed.

“Our abs stabilise the body because we engage them. If a corset is used to only mimic the shape of a toned midsection without actually using our muscles, the result is a false sense of strength and muscular engagement.

“It is much more effective, for both visual and health purposes, to work your abs (correctly) on their own – without an outside force providing an infrastructure that should be created through muscular contraction.”
