The waist-training manufacturer that has become a staple of the Instagram accounts of the Kardashian sisters is being sued for failing to deliver its promises.

Waist Gang Society’s company statement promises to “burn fatty tissue by making you sweat,” which in turn allegedly “targets the back, torso, waist and abdomen areas.”

But a group of women claims the company has been blatantly lying, and now they’re seeking $5M in a class action lawsuit against the Florida-based company.

From ET Online:

In a letter obtained by ET addressed to the defendant, Sara Hawes, who filed the lawsuit, asks that the company “immediately correct the inaccurate information concerning the purported benefits of the products and refund the cost of the products to all purchasers throughout the state of California,” including herself.

The Kardashian clan does not appear to have pulled their endorsement of the company.

Just over a month ago, Khloe Instagrammed that her waist trainer was a “secret weapon,” writing: “My workout routine has fallen off due to my crazy work schedule but thank goodness for @premadonna87 and @waistgangsociety!! This company is so dope.”

Many doctors have come forward to say that waist-trainers are not only uncomfortable and can lead to heartburn, but also dangerous to your organs.

Have you tried a waist-trainer? Has it worked for you?
