Lululemon recalls yoga pants for being see-through
Vancouver-based company Lululemon has yanked its popular yoga pants from store shelves and online after it found that the sheer material used was revealing too much.
The affected merchandise have been filtering in to Lululemon stores since March 1st and represent approximately 17 per cent of all women’s long and cropped bottoms.
Lululemon said it is working with its supplier to replace the fabric and replenish the inventory as quickly as possible.
Lululemon wrote on its website:
At lululemon, our most important relationship is with our communities and our guests. We recently learned some information about some product that arrived in our stores and we wanted you to know right away.
At the beginning of March, our stores and ecommerce site received some black luon women’s bottoms that didn’t meet our high standards. The materials used in construction were the same but the coverage was not, resulting in increased sheerness. We want you to Down Dog and Crow with confidence and we felt these pants didn’t measure up.
We keenly listen to your feedback and it is paramount to us that you know we’re listening. We are 100% committed to doing the right thing for our guests and living our standards. It is with these intentions in mind that we’ve pulled the affected product from our floors and website.
We are working with our supplier to replace this fabric and other manufacturers to replenish the affected core items as fast as we can. What that means is there will be a shortage of these styles in our stores and online until our new stock arrives. We are also in conversation with our manufacturing partner to understand what happened during the period this fabric was made.
We are committed to making things right so if you purchased product from our store or on our website and you think it is too sheer, we welcome you to return it for a full refund or exchange.
