Almost nothing can tear Lululemon fanatics (like Minka Kelly, pictured) away from their beloved yoga pants — not even the major price tag ($88 and up).
But then we heard the news that Lululemon is pulling 17% of their yoga pants from stores due to “a batch of black luon that doesn’t meet our standards,” according to an FAQ on their website. In other words: they’re see-through. Will this be the thing that parts celebs from their fave workout wear?
We can’t help but think that this still won’t be enough to get die-hards to ditch their Lulus in favor of another brand — in fact, we bet this new shortage of the line’s signature bottoms is going to cause a nationwide panic in well-heeled yogis everywhere. When the pants are that flattering, who cares if the person behind you gets an eyeful during Downward Dog? They should be meditating, anyway.
However, if you’re feeling a little cautious about baring more than your soul in that Lotus pose, check out a few lower-priced items that PeopleStyleWatch.com editors can vouch for while you wait for Lulu to restock.
• Skinnytees leggings, $34
• Old Navy boot-cut yoga pants, $20
• The Girls tummy-control capris, $32.99
• Tees by Tina smooth leggings, $38
