Lululemon Has To Recall Yoga Pants You Can See Through

yoga pants

Recalling their transparent yoga pants was probably a good call on Lululemon’s part, though I suppose it will come as a disappointment to anyone who was deliberately buying yoga pants that were transparent.

Why was this happening to  begin with? Are Lululemon stores very dimly lit? Do people shop by candlelight there? No. No, I’ve been to a Lululemon store and I feel very confident this is absolutely not the case.

However, the company just announced that they have to recall certain yoga pants, as:

“We have determined that certain shipments of product received from our factories and available in store from March 1, 2013 do not meet our technical specifications. The items affected are certain styles of women’s bottoms in our signature black Luon fabric. The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the pants remain the same but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black Luon bottoms that falls short of our very high standards.

Over the past weekend we pulled all of the affected black Luon women’s bottoms from our stores, showrooms and e-commerce site and are working with our supplier to replace the fabric and our other manufacturers to replace these key items as quickly as possible. We believe the affected items represented approximately 17% of all women’s bottoms in our stores and for the near term there will be a shortage of these styles available to our guests.”

I am still amazed that 17% of women were apparently unable to tell this and have been going around wearing transparent pants.

Also – did you read Super Sad Super True love story? There’s a portion about how the fashion of the future will be women wearing transparent pants called “onionskin jeans.”

The future is now.

    I have had yoga pants where I did not notice they were more see through than I would have liked while in downward dog- looking back into the mirror (did I just admit to checking out my own ass?). This would be a very trying position to check out in the fitting room. However, at like 80bucksapop per pant, you’d think they would have this investigated in the early production stages

    Most hard core yoga people who actually spend that crazy money on Lululemon clothes want people to check out there fine bodies. Its a complete. I’m better than you, thing.
