Sheer No More: Lululemon’s Recalled Yoga Pants Are Back

luonLululemon (LULU[1]) — the hot yoga-pant retailer — has finally restocked its shelves with black luon yoga pants … and ones that are no longer too sheer for comfort.

If you remember — which you should unless you “were under a rock,” according the company — Lulu pulled its previous batch of black luon pants in March because “the thin fabric was exposing more than just good yoga form,” as The LA Times put it[2].

The mishap caused a commotion at the time, but has been sorted our thanks to lower-stretch fabric, higher standards and a “sheer-0-metre!”

Still, more commotion could come Monday when Lululemon reports earnings. Estimates for the quarter were lowered after the pants were pulled, with the company warning investors that the “issue will have a significant impact on financials.”

In fact, the yoga pants accounts for 17% of the company’s sales and the issue was said to mean a dent of $57 million to $67 million in its revenue.

Still, investors haven’t seemed fazed. The stock has gained nearly 20% since the pants were originally pulled.
