The 24-year-old from Germany told The Huffington Post in an interview that she only takes her corset off to shower — she even sleeps in it.

“I started binding at the end of 2009,” Koebke said. “I can bind [my waist] down to 41 cm (16 in). I want to get to 38 cm (14.9 in).”

She told HuffPost she doesn’t experience pain, and is set on trying to break the world record.
