I wore one a long time ago, under a specific dress for that "smoothing" effect. They suck, the whole time, every time, I wore it, I was uncomfortable. A girdle can cause a temporary effect on your size but I don't think wearing a girdle would cause permanent damage, because they are somewhat stretchy. However I know for a fact that wearing cinched corsets affected women (and men for that matter). Cinched corsets caused permanent damage to the rib cage and permanently relocated internal organs. Corsets also caused many women to be barren, as the constriction was too severe to allow the fetus to grow beyond a certain size.
