Meet the woman who has worn a corset every day for the last six years to get her desired figure.

Venezuelan model Aleira Avendaño has worn a waist shrieking corset for 23 hours every day for the last six years to achieve a 20-inch waist.

The only exceptions she allows herself to abstain from wearing one is when she showers and rests for an hour every day.

Aleira, who has a 34DD bust, has undergone surgery on her nose, mouth and bum as well as having liposuction.

"I wash myself and rest for an hour and then I put it on again," she told Barcroft TV.

"At first, it was terrible, then I got used to it, and the belt became a necessity. When I did not have it, my skin would itch. At the beginning it was really hard but now it is a feeling not of pain but of pressure."

"They say I have too much surgery, that I don't have ribs and that I am a man," she added. "It is totally false! I am a girl. And people say I am an extraterrestrial!"

She said that although she attracts critics of her lifestyle, her family have supported her decision, including her father.

"My dad goes out with me and he is not used to it, he is nervous and says 'People look at you so much, it is strange,'" she said.

"This is the best thing that's happened to me," she said. "I would like to be known for my waist."
