Lululemon Recalls Yoga Slut Pants

Lululemon Pants

Either Lululemon was trying to corner the yoga slut market or someone screwed up. The Canadian athletic-wear company was forced to pull new shipments of its yoga pants off the shelves after they were found to be too sheer. Turns out people don’t want see-through pants.

Lululemon withdrew all of the affected black yoga pants from its stores, showrooms and e-commerce site. About 17 percent of all Lululemon women’s bottoms were pulled due to what the company called an “unacceptable level of sheerness”.

“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,” the company said in a statement.

The company, clearly embarrassed, said customers who bought the affected pants can return them for a full refund or exchange. But the recall means there will be a temporary shortage of its black Luon pants and crops. Time to panic!

While see-through pants may lead more men to yoga classes, they don’t have a great impact on stock prices. Shares of Lululemon fell almost 6 percent and the company is cutting its first-quarter revenue forecast as a result of the recall. Perhaps they should have just taken the revealing pants and started a Lululemon stripper line.
