Lulu Lemon

August 14, 2010

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.
