Japanese Fat-Burning Panties

March 20, 2009

Teijin, a Japan-based chemistry company, has developed a type of polyester nanofiber that, when worn on the crotchal region, apparently burns fat. 

Apparently, the fabric is extremely soft and flexible.  It is typically used as an industrial polisher, and the fibers making up the fabric are only 700 nanometers in diameter. Somehow, these soft comfortable panties resulted in waist sizes decreasing in test subjects by “several centimeters” over a test period of 40 days.  

Rad. That is, if you're not a chubby chaser like myself
