can a corset kill you ?

If it is too tight, I believe that it can cause your blood circulation to be cut off. I have no idea for sure, though, so don't take my word for it.

haha I was wondering the same thing. apparently if you wear them day in and day out they will give you an hourglass figure....but they squeeze your organs together so I guess they could possibly kill you if you wear them to look skinny.....at least that's what i've heard(:

Indirectly, especially if it's used all the time (for an extended period of time), and it's laced too tightly, it can cause issues.

A few interesting resources on the subject...
