If you follow any of the Kardashians on Instagram, there’s one product you’ve definitely seen: the waist trainer. Each member of the Kardashian clan inevitably dons themselves in what looks like a mix between a belt, a corset, and a torture device to compress their insides enough so it appears they have an hourglass figure. #Feminism, amiright? Anyway, not only does this product serve as the medieval torture device equivalent of Spanx, but the claim behind this product is that it actually speeds up your metabolism, helps you lose weight, and molds you permanently into a Scarlett Johansen look-a-like. Of course, if that’s true, I’m all in, and so were thousands of others who bought the waist trainer hoping to end up with that L.A. face and an Oakland booty. Unfortunately, the truth is out, and this “magic” belt does nothing other than make you feel like you’re dying.
Unfortunately for Waist Gang Society, the producers of the waist trainers, user Sara Hawes figured out that this product did nothing more than act as a new pair of jeans coming straight out of the dryer and started a five million dollar lawsuit against them. Her claim says that, “Defendant [Waist Gang Society] 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.”
BURN. Waist Gang Society, instead of taking this to court to prove their innocence, reached a settlement, essentially proving their guilt and hoping they can continue to make money off of Kardashian aficionados. So unfortunately for you, if you really do want the tiny waist of your dreams, you’ll have to do it the good old fashioned way for now — diet and exercise. Either that or Facetune. Yeah, I’ll probably just keep using Facetune..
