Some dangers have been associated with the use of girdle which a lot of peopled are oblivious of. Aside causing physical inconvenience and discomfort, there are more serious health issues associated with its use. Doctors and the medical community discouraged its use because it's too risky and has little advantages. The behavioral disadvantage also is that some have lost their confidence without it and are now addicted to it.
