Lululemon Pantscapade

Many of us have moved on from the sheer madness that is the Lululemon Pantscapade, which, much to everyone’s chagrin (especially Chip Wilson et al), is still carrying on and just seems to be getting worse. It’s safe to say this has been the biggest thing to happen to yoga pants since neon spandex. But [...]


“Does Lululemon want women to be comfortable in their clothing, or uncomfortable in our own bodies?” asks the Change.org petition calling for Chip Wilson of Lululemon to “stop shaming women’s bodies…apologize and make clothes for women of all sizes.” Wilson made waves yet again last week when he said in an interview that the problem with [...]


Chip Wilson, Founder of Lululemon, has been through a lot lately, but we can’t dance around the fact that he’s caused most of it himself.

The brand is being sued by the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Pension & Relief Fund. Why? Because they owned about $1.3 million of Lululemon stock when all hell [...]


Attention all you yoga pants stockholders out there, put down your diamond crusted mala, you may want in on this. Investors have gone ahead and filed a class action lawsuit against Lululemon for being shady with their see-through pants problem, allegedly making “false and misleading statements,” hiding defects while cutting costs and defrauding shareholders when all [...]


Woops. Lululemon Athletica Inc. has been sued by Hallandale Beach Police Officers and Firefighters’ Personnel Retirement Fund in Florida, the Associated Press reported. Great, what did lulu do now, try to get retired first responders to put out their PR fires? Not exactly. The suing party are Lululemon shareholders and they are not cool with the board [...]


So, er…there’s this see-through yoga pants sitch going on. A concerned member of the community forwarded us this handy, overly simplistic and cheeky flowchart to help you in your yoga wear decision making process (especially if you just can’t let go of your lulu pants).
