The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has settled with Norm Thompson Outfitters, Inc. (NTO ) and Wacoal America, Inc. in cases alleging that the clothing companies falsely advertise their products—caffeine-infused undergarments—by claiming that they can slim wearers by up to two inches and reduce cellulite. In re Norm Thompson Outfitters, Inc., No. 132 3094 (FTC, agreement date unknown). NTO and Wacoal allegedly claimed that their shapewear products, including Wacoal’s iPants, could reduce thigh and hip measurements “without any effort” because their fabrics were infused with microencapsulated caffeine and retinol. Under the settlement agreements, neither company can claim that any garment can cause substantial weight or fat loss through the use of infused drugs or cosmetics, and they cannot claim that any drug or cosmetic reduces weight or cellulite without competent and reliable scientific evidence. Wacoal will pay $1.3 million and NTO will pay $230,000 to provide refunds to purchasers. See FTC Press Release, September 29, 2014.
