Bizarre Beauty Treatment: Ear Staple So You Won't Eat Too Much

What: Ear Staple Appetite Suppressant

Why: Women go through a lot in the pursuit of the perfect body (what constitutes the perfect body, I'm not quite sure, you'll have to consult Buzzfeed on that one). I can stomach hearing about extreme fad diets and insane exercise routines (I personally resort to my trusty Spanx). What I can't fathom is getting my body pierced to suppress my appetite. An ear staple – touted as permanent acupuncture – is inserted in the protruding piece of cartilage in your ear, and is supposed to hit on nerve pathways associated with your appetite. I don't really understand the logistics, nor do I necessarily believe them.  Maybe the sheer pain of having that part of your ear pierced will take your mind off food?

Not ready for painful new earrings, but want to look slim in that LBD? Check out our Guides to Shapewear and Jewelry for your Shape for options that won't hurt (and can be removed at the end of the evening).
