While preparing to take ten GCSEs this summer at one of Britain's most elite girls' schools, Gabriella, from Godstone, Surrey (right), is wearing a tight corset in an attempt to whittle down her already tiny waist. Like many of her peers who also follow the corset trend, Gabriella's inspiration is not to emulate the upright posture of Victorian ladies who wore corsets so tight they'd faint and permanently deform their rib cages.

Pictured left, 27-year-old Joanna Costa, who wears a corset for up to four hours a day.
