Don't corsets damage your internal organs?
In short, no they do not!
Let's take a moment to think about this one, shall we? The average human being can lift large amounts of weight, has the ability to gain an impressive amount of weight (whether we are talking about muscle or fat) and though I do understand that being overweight is not healthy, my point is that the body is capable of bearing these sorts of stress to an impressive degree before our internal systems begin to show signs of damage.
And my utmost favorite example here is a woman's ability to get pregnant and carry a growing child for up to and sometimes a touch beyond 40 weeks! Pregnancy places a huge amount of weight/stress on the internal organs, and yet it is a natural process that a woman's body was built to tolerate.
So therefore, no: a corset will not damage your internal organs so long as you select the appropriate size for your shape, practice some patience and don't rush into lacing yourself in too tight too fast and listen to your body when you feel the need to loosen your laces up a touch.
Follow these basic rules and you will be just fine!
