Kardashian-Approved Waist Trainer Company Settles Lawsuit: "The Products Have Absolutely No Effect On Fat Loss."
One woman is claiming the products are falsely advertised.
The Kardashian sisters, Amber Rose, and Blac Chyna have all at one point thanked one single product for helping them get their envy-inducing curves: waist trainers by Waist Gang Society. We've all seen the Instagram posts of the celebs showing off their waist-shrinking corsets, but is it the real deal?
"It's a unique and efficient way to help women shed unwanted inches and feel good about themselves - no diet and exercise required," said company founder PreMadonna on the WGS website.
However, a class action lawsuit filed against the Florida-based company in March claimed that the company falsely advertises their products, which range from $38 to $160 in price and promise to give consumers a Kardashian-esque figure.
"These 'waist trainers' do redistribute fat to other portions of the user's body, thereby creating the perception of a fit and trim waist," read the complaint filed by Californian Sara Hawes. "However, Defendant claims that the Products actually burn fat and control the user's weigh...this is completely false and misleading. The Products have absolutely no effect on fat loss."
The suit demanded $5 mil from Waist Gang Society and an injunction to block the company from misleading customers into expecting weight loss, read the Daily Mail's report.
The Daily Mail has since reported that the suit was settled on Monday though, and the allegations were dismissed. PreMadonna, who started the business in her Florida condo a few years ago, could have done a lot worse.
