Now here’s a vendor who preys on women’s insecurity and desire to be attractive and loved. I’m not going to be nice to them.
Let’s take a look at what else the people who sell ClearSight driving glasses are up to. In this episode, what our grandparents called “girdles.” There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted. I’m using my Scam-O-Meter scoring system; -1 means true (bad), +1 means false (good), and 0 means undetermined. I penalize the seller for statements made by shills. Contact information:

Ridiculous claims: -1
- “Extremely soft and comfortable.” Okay, I’m a guy. But when I travel I have to wear support socks to prevent blood clots. Imagining that constant smashing over my whole body, I don’t believe it would be extremely soft and comfortable.
- “So many celebs love it says it all.” Name ten.
Suspicious location: -1. The address above is a real building. But it’s also used by many other enterprises, some of them dubious, as I’ve listed here.
Onerous terms: 0. Terms are mild compared to those of some sellers. However, they don’t guarantee that their product is fit for any use; nor that anything they say is true.
Ads, spam, robocalls: +1. You can opt in to receive emailed advertising, and opt out.
Lying and deception: -1. “Made from Modal, an eco-friendly material.” I found that Modal is a close relative of rayon. Wikipedia; “A recent ocean survey found that rayon contributed to 56.9% of the total fibers found in deep ocean areas, the rest being polyester, polyamides, acetate and acrylic.”
- Overlays keep popping up to tell me about people in random locations who are buying invisible body shapers. I’d better hurry, before they’re all gone!
- When I move my cursor outside the order form page, a big coupon overlays it. This has a countdown timer; time’s a-wastin’.
Phony reviews: -1. This photo named sales7.jpg used in an on-site endorsement by “Amy M.” is also being used by several other online girdle vendors.
Crummy product: 0. Unknown.
Overpriced: 0. Amazon lists body shaper garments ranging in price from $3 to $26. Invisible Body Shaper is asking $35 for one pair. That seems rather high, but not outrageous.
Bad service: +1. I found no complaints.
Total score; -3
Unauthorized charges: I found no reports of this. Invisible Body Shaper doesn’t accept Pay Pal.
