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.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
