Hahaha-I saw that! I've never had a pair of Lululemon yoga pants and can't imagine I would ever pay that much for them. I just spent $24.99 on a pair of Yoga pants from Target that fit me perfectly. I would be so angry if I had bought such and expensive pair of pants and then found out they couldn't stand up to a seat belt or thigh rub!!

It's been called a cult, and i agree.  The girls at my daughter's dance studio LOVE their lulu.  Why do 12 year olds need head to toe Lulu every day?  Yeah.  I know a trainer/group ex instructor who tried to get a job there. She was more than qualified but never called back. We're guessing it's an age thing.  I pay that much for tights but buy them from Athleta and Lucy. Because I work in corporate facilties, I feel like I need to dress up some for that but still be in workout clothes. Plus, they offer nice pro deals.  I love walking into either store, peaceful atmosphere, salespeople of different ages and sizes. Walk into Lulu and it's like an elitist club. Oh, it's the Abercrombie and Fitch of the yoga set!!!
