Ethel Granger

Ethel Granger (1905-1982) “The smallest waist on earth”
Ethel Granger is known for being the women with the smallest waist on earth; 13 inches (33 cm). This according to the Guinness Book of records


Further reduction of Ethel’s waist did entail some problems. Although Ethel had been laced tightly for years and was accustomed to being tightly laced all the time, she frequently loosened the laces when alone and her sides became sore. Mrs. Kayne told Will to tolerate no nonsense from Ethel, so whenever he inspected her corset and found it open an inch, he tightened it until it was again closed.” Taken from Ethel Granger’s Biography, available at:
