Have you been following the controversy surrounding lululemon athletica lately? It seems like there is one thing after another coming up ever since the see-through pants incident. The company’s founder tried to explain that issue away by saying that some women’s bodies aren’t made to wear their pants. Here’s a link to the latest in this yoga world saga.
Many of my friends in the yoga & Pilates world have taken a stance on this issue & have decided to boycott the brand. Some have even decided to step down from their positions as ambassadors to the brand. I’ve always felt that the company’s employees were very community oriented & try to support local studios & teachers. At the same time, within that support are some politics & competition between studios & teachers to “get-in” with their local stores. It’s long been a badge of prestige to have the lululemon emblem on your clothing, like a status symbol.
Where do you stand on this issue? Will you stop wearing your lulu’s now?
