Are lululemon pants too sheer (a.k.a. see through) or is the real issue that women are trying to squeeze into the butt transforming pants that are simply too small for them?
“Frankly, some women’s bodies just don’t actually work for it,” said Chip Wilson, co-founder of lululemon, during an live interview on Bloomberg TV’s Street Smart. “They don’t work for some women’s bodies… it’s really about the rubbing through the thighs, how much pressure is there over a period of time, how much they use it.”
He argues that the quality of lululemon’s gear is not the issue at hand. His wife Shannon didn’t seem too pleased with her husband’s explanation and quickly interjected by adding that some women might be “sitting on a cement ground” which could result in the perceived piling issues.
Chip has been adamant that plus sized women are attempting to fit into pants a few sizes too small which causes the fabric to unintentionally stretch.
