Fashionista investigates a press release alleging that Lady Gaga wore a Kymaro full-body girdle in her latest stage show. "First, we called publicity firm 5WPR to see what the real deal was. A rep explained that it was only a rumor, reported to the firm sometime last week. Then, we went right to someone close to Gaga. That person says that they’ve never heard of the company and there’s no way Kymaro was used in one of the star’s stage looks." Nice try, Kymaro, but we're totally going with some other brand next time we, um, buy a full-body girdle. [Fashionista]
