"The temperature is awesome today, I wanna see fn yoga pants b*tchs...stop playin," Evinger tweeted.
Evinger hit the proverbial nail on the head, as this month has been unseasonably warm all across the country. With that said, athletes might as well celebrate the female athletic build by wearing yoga pants.
“Now I know why I love @lululemon ladies they make your but (sic) look awesome! I expect @rondarousey to go buy hers tomorrow," Tate said.
Despite Tate's praise for Lululemon Athletica, Louisiana Sheriffs’ Pension & Relief Fund was named to lead the class action securities litigation against the Vancouver-based company on October 1, accusing the firm of decimating shareholder value by producing sheer exercise pants.
"The fabric used was very thin, overly translucent, and essentially rendered the yoga pants see-through when wearers bent over—which is what those who wear yoga pants do," one of the case's complaints alleged. "Customers began complaining in droves. After weeks of upheaval, Lululemon was forced to formally recall see-through yoga pants and offer customers exchanges or refunds. Initially, Lululemon blamed the defect on its manufacturers and suppliers."
Trouble began earlier this year when the company recalled its best-selling item, women’s black yoga pants with Luon fabric, after customer complaints that they lost their opacity, despite its reputation for athletic clothing that could endure many wears and washes.
It remains to be seen what will come of Lululemon Athletica, but here's to hoping they continue to produce yoga pants for the WMMA community to enjoy.
In honor of the company, here's a look at five iconic photos of WMMA athletes celebrating the female athletic build in yoga pants.
