Caffeine in stockings?

Deutsche Welle published this cautionary column about caffiene use and abuse. As a hard-core coffee addict, I enjoy reading any and all analyses of my drug of choice, but I had not heard about coffee in nylons?

The textile industry is the latest to discover the benefits of caffeine for the production of nylons. The stimulant is woven into the fibers to create an uplifting, sliming effect on the upper thighs – a pick-me-up the majority of women certainly can appreciate as much as a good cup of joe.

One theory is that this increased incidence is caused by low vitamine D levels in pregnant mothers due to low levels of sun light during a crucial period in fetal development.
