Woman Who Claims To Have 13.7in Waist Denies Editing Her Snaps
A woman who claims to have a teeny 13.7in (34.7cm) waist says it's down to her healthy lifestyle.
The 23-year-old has been accused of editing her photos as well as going to more hardcore measures such as having ribs removed or wearing 'waist training' corsets.
However, Su denies this and says her waist is all natural and is simply down to her diet.
She said: "I am in a healthy disposition and keep a healthy diet so there is nothing to worry about. I don't think there is something wrong with how I look.
"I enjoy posing for pictures and showing off my looks. The compliments are very flattering. People agree that it is a beautiful look."
On Instagram Su has more than 1,300 followers who are quick to praise her photos calling her 'beautiful' and 'irresistible'. But others question whether her pics are edited or digitally altered before posting.

It is understood that Su's waist has not been independently verified to back up her claims.
The Guinness World Record holding smallest waist is actually even smaller than Su's. The title was awarded to Ethel Granger in 1939, who got her waist down to just 13in (33cm) after years or wearing corsets to shape her body.
The record for the smallest waist on a person who is currently alive belongs to Cathie Jung, from the US, who has a corseted waist of 15in (38.1cm), while uncorseted it's still an eye-wateringly slim 21in (53.3cm)
For context, the NHS says healthy women should aim for a waist of 31.5in (80cm).
Cathie, who is a big fan of Victorian fashion, says she wears a corset for 23 hours a day and only takes it off to shower. Sounds bloody awful, but each to their own.
Cathie, who has three children, told the Guinness World Records: "We had no intention of setting a record. It was about dressing appropriately for the age."
Well, watch out, Cathie, it looks like Su might be after your title.
