The Federal Trade Commission has come down hard on two companies selling leggings, girdles and bras infused with caffeine. The two companies, Norm Thompson and Wacoal America, told customers their caffeine-infused underwear would help them lose weight.
How would wearing a caffeinated bra help you lose weight? They claimed the fabric would break down your fat. Obviously this is a f—king lie, and that’s why the companies have now agreed to refund money to their gullible customers.
Jessica Rich, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, told reporters the following…
“If someone says you can lose weight by wearing the clothes they are selling, steer clear. The best approach is tried and true: diet and exercise.”
The companies haven’t responded to the media, but we do know the refunds will total $1.5 million, which means a lot of lazy people really wanted to lose weight.
In one of their advertisements, Norm Thompson, claimed “slimming and firming results are visible in under a month.” This ad has since been removed, because the company did not have any evidence to back up their outrageous claim.
Hopefully the people who bought this sh-t decide to purchase something a little more useful with their refund check. Maybe some running shoes?
Note: Running shoes will not run for you.
