According to Barcroft TV, Koebke wears a corset to reduce her waist, and over the past three years, she has gradually replaced the corset with a smaller size to achieve her current waist size. Koebke does not take off her corset at night, even to sleep, except when she takes a shower.
But will such a tightening of the belt have any negative impact on health?
Ms. Koebke's lung capacity is lower than that of a woman of her age due to the tightness of the corset. Her stomach is also constricted, which prevents her from eating normal amounts of food, and she eats only a small amount of food 10 times a day. When she sits down, her stomach tightens more, making it harder for her to swallow, so she eats standing up.
Koebke visits her doctor regularly for checkups.
The doctor in charge of Ms. Koebke said, "Eventually, she will not be able to move without a corset. In the worst case, she may not be able to move at all.
What is the reason for such a thin waist? Koebke is aiming for the Guinness World Record for the thinnest waist achieved by wearing a corset.
The current Guinness World Record is 38.1 centimeters (53.34 centimeters when the corset is removed), set by Cathie Jung in 1999.
Koebke's goal is to surpass Jung's record," she said.
Koebke said, "No matter what, I want to get to 38 centimeters.
