Description:
A photo of Ethel Granger, who had the smallest waist size in recent history measuring in at 36-13-39.

She first put on a corset to please her husband, astronomer William Arnold Granger. And then he bought smaller and smaller corsets, asking her to wear them 24 hours a day - she complied. Her beginning waist size was 23 inches.

She made the Guinness Book of Records and was the record holder until 1998, when they changed the category to "Woman alive with the smallest waist".

13 inch waist and lots of piercings - she was born in 1905 and this 1950s photo with all the piercings show elements of "then and now".
