High-end yoga pants have been recalled after it was found they were revealing too much through the sheer fabric they are made from. This is the second time this company offered up bottoms that ended up being too see-through for most women to wear comfortably. The Luluemon brand is costly, the $100 yoga pants are a big seller, but they've disappointed many of the Luluemon loyal consumers, according to The Washington Post on Tuesday, March 19, 2013.
One woman, who was a loyal customer to this brand of yoga attire, was so disappointed that she vows to shop Target for her yoga pants from now on. Eva Glettner of Los Angeles said you expect to get quality for that price and has decided the yoga pants at Target for just $30 is a better buy and they keep you covered. Women shouldn't have to worry about your rear-end being exposed after paying that kind of money for quality apparel.
The recall of the yoga pants has now put investors on edge as Lululemon Athletica Inc posted on its website that it first became aware of the extent of the problem on March 11, when it made their weekly series of calls to the store managers. The managers voiced their concerns about the sheer yoga pants revealing more than they should. The customers reported the problem to the managers, who in turn reported it to Lululemon headquarters.
Lululemon has warned that the recall will hurt its first quarter revenue, which has investors a bit worried. It will also mean that the yoga pants will be in short supply. The Vancouver-based company had a problem with see-through swimsuit bottoms in 2012. They have also had two other issues with the quality of other apparel in the past.
