See-through yoga pants? Have you been exposed to any in Bethesda, so to speak?
In Montgomery County, where yoga is popular, some devotees of Lululemon, known for its yoga attire, may have been shocked by the news that nearly 17 percent of the yoga pants sold in stores last month were recalled due to an "unacceptable level of sheerness."
Compounding the debacle were reports that customers seeking to return the pants were asked to bend over to demonstrate the fabric's shortcomings, though the corporation later said no "downward-facing dog” was required.
Now, following the recall of the Luon yoga pants line, the company is announcing top product officer Sheree Waterson will step down.
The company won't confirm whether Waterson's departure is related to the pants pull.
The recall will slash Lululemon's revenue by $12 million to $17 million in the first quarter and by $45 million to $50 million for the rest of the year, the Wall Street Journal reports.
