I see you're from Europe. Here in the US, it's a fashion trend (one that I dearly wish would go away) for young women to wear their pants 2 sizes too small. Especially unflattering when the young woman is overweight, as so many are. (insert the "covering your eyes" smiley here).

In order to look good in yoga pants, you better first have a body that is actually capable of doing ......... yoga.

Bodies of all shapes and sizes are capable of doing yoga.

Maybe people should wear yoga pants when they aren't doing yoga.... Maybe that would solve the problem. I don't know where this whole "yoga pant" trend came in but it's one of the most obscure I've seen in my short 25 years. I wore those pants to DANCE practice 5 days a week.... Nuff said.

As for the designer good for him. It's his line and he can do what he wants. We live in a FREE country. If someone built a home I'd hope they'd know who it would fit best.

And as far as the designer/owner of lululemon, he should be allowed to design his line for whoever size consumer he chooses but the quality of the line is certainly not worth the price and his attitude is very much against the yoga mindset of inclusivity

LOL, screw the co-founder of the company Luluemon.

I do yoga in my jammies.

Some designers make stuff that fits people differently. This guy didn't phrase it very well. There are clothes out there that are too short, too long, too tight and too loose for all of us, despite being our size.

And actually fatter people are need of sporting clothes because people cannot sport without clothes. Staying home just make people fatter and sad.

Shame on you knife.
Why should he produce Yoga pants for all sizes? Luluemon is a business and they have a niche product, making it for everyone wasn't part of the design.

I find it amazing that people who say things like fashion police are the first to tell a business how to run it. Can you say business police but shame on me?

For the record, I don't really care if someone wants to spray on their clothes to cover acreage, that is their choice. My comment was about someone have the guts to say things the way they think instead of making some up nonsense to not hurt anyone's feelings.

Too often, people can't make a comment on the off-limits topics, overweight being one of them. The word "fat" is practically vulgarity as if saying someone is obese is somehow a kinder way to say it. Society took a downward turn when it became a no-no to say something directly and no sugar coat it for the speech police.

Shame on me, yeah because some women can't fit into Luluemon yoga pants without looking like air balloons filled with wet cement, never mind they are the ones putting on the pants and stuffing their faces.

Hats off though, to the heaviest of them that stretch on anything but then also even attempt to do something about it. Of course, the few (and is is relatively few) who have issues beyond their control are exempt from my comments. Those people deserve compassion, understanding and the encouragement of all. Yes, you can tell who that is not; not the ones at the all you can eat buffets or the ones sitting down to 5 bowls of whatever they can stuff onto a plate.

Strange isn't it, that those who chastise anyone who talks about people being "obese" are often the same ones who never hesitate to complain about smokers. Both are bad for your health right? As for the health of others, ever have someone super sized sit on your thigh in an airplane?

Yes, and bravo to anyone that does.

I don't wear muscle shirts because I am almost skinny so I cut holes in straws for my arms and wear that.
