Yeah, So, Lululemon’s New Leggings Are Probably Out Of Your Price Range

Yeah, So, Lululemon's New Leggings Are Probably Out Of Your Price Range

You can’t put a price on comfort. Actually, yes, you can. And when you do, lululemon will triple it.

But before we get into lululemon’s new reflective leggings, I’ll say this: I get it. When life allows you the opportunity to wear something with an elastic waistband, you take life up on that opportunity. Wearing a comfortable pair of joggers in bed on a Sunday night is exponentially more comfortable than wearing a pair of old soccer shorts from high school with ratty liner. I’m not averse to over-spending on a pair of sweatpants that I’ll wear regularly rather than on a nice suit that I’ll wear twice a year. But with that being said, there’s no way in hell that the sweatpants should just the same amount as a suit in the first place.

Lululemon is really good at pissing the world off. And in the next chapter of making everyone low-key hate them, they’re now charging $300 for a pair of reflective “Speed Tights,” which most people will just call bougie-ass yoga pants. Oh, and they’re also charging $100 for a sports bra made out of the same material.

Since their release in Canada, they’ve pretty much received nothing but hate because people don’t want to spend a car payment on a pair of stretchy pants. Which I get. But let’s look a step further into this so you can avoid getting too emotional over a pair of yoga pants.

If you’re dating a girl who wears these pants: dump her, because you can’t afford her.

If you’re friends with a girl who wears these pants: she talks shit behind your back.

If you see someone wearing a pair of these at the gym, spin class, or yoga: she’s the character in Things Girls Do After Graduation.

And if you are a girl wearing these pants: I’ve got some friends who would like to temporarily date you until they realize they can’t afford you.

Let’s just all do ourselves a favor and just go outside the world of lululemon for a bit. Besides, all of their clothes only fit you if you’re in shape, and I’m not wearing workout clothes because I’m in shape – I’m wearing workout clothes so people think I work out even though I don’t.
