The FTC sued Wacoal alleging that the company made misleading claims about its iPant products. The company claimed its caffeine-infused women’s undergarments would slim hips and thighs and reduce the appearance of cellulite. But the FTC says Wacoal didn’t have adequate scientific support for these claims.
