Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard all about the Lululemon pants recall. I don’t want to get into a whole discussion or commentary here about this latest Lululemon fiasco — there are other yoga blogs out there that do a better job of keeping up with this stuff — but I just had to share this article about the bizarre way in which some customers have been asked to prove that their pants are defective. Basically, the test amounts to having the customer put the pants on and bend over in front of a Lululemon employee, who will determine if the pants are unacceptably sheer by staring at your butt.
Personally, I stopped buying anything from this company a long time ago, probably around the time they went public and turned into a multi-billion-dollar monster. There are plenty of reasons to boycott Lululemon, and there are plenty of folks out there who will tell you why. Now it seems there’s a whole new reason to stay away from Lululemon: the “show me your butt” return policy.
