Who Knew Clothing could be so Dangerous?

Canadian company, Lululemon, is recalling more than 300,000 of their workout hoodies because the elastic drawstrings around the hood were whipping back and hitting people in the eye face.

Speaking as a past figure skater with long hair, and remembering all the times my long pony tail would smack me in the face when I was doing a jump or spin, I understand the dilemma here.

Apparently, Lululemon pulled the jackets voluntarily without a lawsuit.  Let’s hope there were no major yoga fatalities on their watch before doing so.

It’s Wedgie Time

Lululemon has come out with a romper to wear running.  Although I’ve never really gotten into fashionable workout clothes…any sports bra and tight black pants will do…I definitely want to be comfortable while I’m putting my body through hell.

Let’s take a step back and examine some hot, fit women.  Imagine Cameron Diaz, in all her muscular glory, (although I don’t particularly find her appealing).  Now imagine her in a onesie…I mean romper.  Sexy or disturbing?  My vote is for disturbing.

My favorite mental image: Imagine Pamela Anderson, back in her Baywatch days, wearing a onesie to run along the beach.  Sexy or disturbing? Okay, so maybe she can make anything look sexy…but I’d still say it’s a definite buzzkill.

Lululemon, I respect your attempt to make workout clothes interesting and fashionable, but try again.  Not every combination is a winner.  Picture chocolate cake with guacamole.  Both are undoubtedly awesome on their own, but together equals disaster.

I’d rather run in peace and look like a ragamuffin than fend off some serious wedgies.

Huffington Post agrees.  I’m sure others do too.  Let’s stop the cruelty! Like this post and join forces with “Women against Workout Wedgies.”  Let’s end the madness, Lululemon.

Run in Peace.
