Lululemon Athletica, which has a store in La Jolla, recalled some of its yoga pants because of quality. Its women’s black Luon pants are a bit revealing—the fabric on a recent shipment of yoga pants was found to be sheer.
“The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the women’s black luon bottoms remain the same, but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our black luon bottoms that fall short of our very high standards,” the company posted on its website.
The Vancouver-based fitness apparel company said it pulled the pants from its sales floor and online store on March 16. These particular pants represent about 17 percent of all women’s bottoms inventory for lululemon. There is expected to be a shortage of the pants, which are made in Vietnam and Taiwan.
Shoppers that purchased these pants between March 1 and March 16 in stores or online can return the pants for a full refund or exchange.
Inquiries to lululemon athletica about sales, returns and the inventory of its La Jolla store were not answered at time of publication.
The company is working with its manufacturers to ensure its products meet its standards.
In addition to the recall, the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday that downgraded its financial predictions.
“The company lowered its expectations for an 11 percent increase in same-store sales and revenue between $350 million and $355 million for its first fiscal quarter. Now, Lululemon is projecting a 5 percent to 8 percent same-store sales range and revenue between $333 million and $343 million,” the LA Times said, adding that the company will unveil its fourth quarter and full-year earnings on Thursday.
