Waist Gang Society Settles $5 Million Lawsuit
Waist trainers have become a “weight loss” phenomenon for thousands of women over the last few years, promising to snatch inches away off the midsection — with eventual permanent results. But a recent class action lawsuit claimed that the Waist Gang Society — owned by PreMadonna and promoted by the likes of the Kardashians, Amber Rose, And Blac Chyna — sold nothing but dreams inside a bucket of lies over what the constricting corsets could do for a woman’s figure long-term.
Waist Gang Society raked in customers after the Kardashian sisters flaunted their corsets – and shrinking midriffs – all over social media.
But customers hoping for the same results hit out at the Florida-based firm, claiming the product did not burn fat and control the user’s waist as promised.
In March, Californian customer Sara Hawes filed a $5 million class action suit against the company that threatened to topple them from their fitness-fad status.
However, Daily Mail Online can now exclusively reveal the firm reached an agreement on Monday that will see all allegations against them dismissed.
The suit demanded in excess of $5 million from Waist Gang Society and an injunction to block the company from misleading customers into expecting weight loss.
The papers state: ‘These ‘waist trainers’ do redistribute fat to other portions of the user’s body, thereby creating the perception of a fit and trim waist, however, Defendant claims that the Products actually burn fat and control the user’s weight.
‘This is completely false and misleading. The Products have absolutely no effect on fat loss of the user.’
WELP. We guess it’s basically your own fault if you think that wearing a waist trainer will take you from “busted can of biscuits” to “booking info in bio” without any diet or exercise effort on your part whatsoever…and it looks like the courts agree.
