Lulu Lemon

One thing I’ve noticed at Lulu Lemon stores; the staff  are always thin.  There’s the key word, thin.  I’ve been to several Lulu Lemon stores in various states and all I’ve ever seen are these size two staff members walking around.  Thinness must be a pre-requisite to work there. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love the Lulu Lemon Athletica apparel, I just can’t fit into any of it. I’m a full-figured woman who practices yoga (yes Lulu Lemon execs big women do exercise) but their stores carry nothing above a size 12.  I would love to be able to wear one of the great looking sports bras but I’m not an A cup so why not make one in a DD you know, one that will fit an average woman.  The same goes for your pants and tank tops, how about putting out some size 18’s or 22’s?

So here’s my shout out to Lulu Lemon execs “Hey, are the words “full figured” in your vocabulary? Take your heads out of the sand, look around and you’ll realize that plus size women like to do yoga too. And we like to look nice while doing it.  So, why not design clothes that are 1x, 2x or 3x? Not every body in this world is a thin body”.  

The only things that I’ve ever found in a LuLu Lemon store that fit me are the yoga mats, which, by the way, are great.

    Hey there,
    Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. I wanted to take this opportunity to reach out and let you know we always appreciate any feedback our guests have about us and our product.

    I definitely agree that there is a wide variety of active people out there. Right now lululemon athletica’s business model focuses on smaller retail stores which in turn limits the size range we can offer within each style and colour. Having said this, we are a company built on feedback from valued guests like yourself. I will be sharing this with our design team for their future consideration.

    In regards to our bras, have you heard of the Ta Ta Tamer? It is our fullest support bra we currently have and based on the feedback we received we extended the sizing of this to include up to a 36DD. Our online store has even had them up to an E cup previously.
    Here is the link to the Ta Ta Tamer http://bit.ly/bfr5ri

    Thank you again for sharing all of this. Have a lovely day,
    Jenna

      Jenna, Thank you for responding. I did look into the Ta Ta Tamer, even though I’m a 38DD I tried on the largest size, 36DD, it didn’t fit. Other athletic stores carry sizes for large people I can only hope that someday the CEO’s and design team at Lulu Lemon will see the light.

    Makes sense, Lulu Lemon. If you want to expand your customer base, you need to expand your range of sizes as well.

    Maybe Lulu’s bras would fit me, but that’s about all!

    I doubt it, they are teeny!

    I’m 5’2″ and weigh 108. They are too small for me. Their clothes only fit Barbie dolls.
