Ah, functional underpants. We’ve seen claims that they can protect you from radiation, eat farts, and even burn fat.

So is anyone surprised to see a lawsuit disputing claims that caffeine-infused undies can help zap fat?

Two women are suing lingerie maker Maidenform for “consumer fraud, breach of warranty and unjust enrichment,” according to Courthouse News.

The manufacturer says underwear in its Shapewear line has “Novarel Slim yarn technology” that “provides slimming benefits by reducing the appearance of cellulite. Novarel Slim microfibre incorporates microcapsules containing caffeine, retinol, ceramides, and other active principles.”
