Lululemon Recalls Unintentionally See-Through Pants

Lululemon[1]Clothing store Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU[2]) is recalling a huge amount of its yoga pants that become see-through when worn.

The store also said that it expects the recall — which covers about 17% of the pants it sells — to significantly impact its bottom line, reports CNN[3]. LULU said it will lower its sales growth forecast from 11% to 5%-8% for stores open more than a year.

The stretchy pants become overly see-through when worn, despite having no apparent change in material or manufacturing. In a statement, the company said, “The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the pants remain the same, but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black Luon bottoms that falls short of our very high standards.”

The company also said customers can expect a shortage of the pants until the problem is fixed and new garments are produced and distributed.

LULU shares were down 5% in premarket trading Tuesday.
