Lululemon recalls see-through yoga pants

Retailer pulls see-through workout pants from shelves.

FashionistaGoing for a workout? Not so fast—before you lunge on over to the gym, make sure you’re not giving other gym-goers a peep show. 

According to Fashionista, popular women’s retailer Lululemon is recalling a brand of their women’s bottoms because the pants are—well--see-through. 

17 percent of a type of pant made from the brand’s signature luon fabric (a blend of nylon and Lycra spandex) has been recalled, and the problematic pants were pulled from retail stores this weekend.

“The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the women’s black luon bottoms remain the same but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black luon bottoms that fall short of our very high standards.”

The issue affects “certain shipments of product received from our factories and available in store on March 1, 2013,” says the retailer on the Lululemon site.

A statement claims the occurrence of the super sheer bottoms is “not the result of changing manufacturers or quality of ingredients. We are working closely with them to understand what happened during the period this fabric was made.”

We love the stretchy fit of a pair of Lululemon pants, but we’re not loving the idea of overexposure in our downward facing dog.

The exposure while in other positions was worse...especially when going "commando"...

 

Down dog was nothing compared to that...if you get my drift!

They could have just labled them, "New Ultra-Sheer Yoga Pants," and they wouldn't have able to keep them stocked in the stores.

some slave laborer in that chinese factory won't get a bowl of rice today.they'll find out which lot it was and remove the crew and use them for fertilizer.100 bucks for yoga pants? bet the people putting them together make that in about 3 years.

One of the problems is that the clothing manufacturers are making clothes so tight and thin these days it's a wonder they can sew the seams together.  I think it is a way to save money at our expense.  You don't have to have such thin material even if you still want tight.  The clothing maufacturers make us believe that this kind of clothing is fashionable when actually it is only their way of saving money by cheating us.

I figured girls would check out the "see-through" factor before they bought them? I saw a girl on campus who had the same "problem". Something out of the ordinary caught my eye. It happen to be her white panties with blue polka dots! Not saying I didn't mind the view though! haha.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
