Is anti-aging clothing the next big thing?

Americans are on a constant quest to reduce the signs of aging, and over the years, there have been a number of questionable products that claim to be an alternative to tried-and-true cosmetic procedures. The newest comes in the form of clothing that supposedly reduces wrinkles and age spots as you're wearing it, according to The Gloss.

The fashion line, known as Wear Repair, is created by Cass Luxury Shapewear. It features leggings, tank tops and shirts that apparently can do a number of beneficial things for the skin, including reducing wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation as well as enhancing skin texture. Digging a little deeper into the "how" of this clothing line make cause you to raise a skeptical eyebrow. According to the line's creator, Susan Ledyard, the fabric of the clothing contains copper oxide, an ingredient that has shown up in a number of anti-aging beauty products, as some believe it has properties that can help turn back the clock.

If you're looking for a medical trial to back up these claims, you're out of luck. However, a TV show did run a trial with the clothing, and, according to Ledyard, participants saw a "significant decrease in age spots" after wearing the clothing for a month, the news source reports.

It's likely best to take this information with a grain of salt - unless doctors come forward to say that the clothing can improve the quality of the skin, those seeking anti-aging treatments may want to stick to what's been proven to work.

There's a reason Botox injections have jumped to the top of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's list of the top non-surgical cosmetic procedures. This cosmetic medicine has been proven to reduce wrinkling around the mouth, eyes and forehead, which can give patients a more youthful appearance.
