Lululemon Founder: Sheer Pants Your Own Fault

“Some women's bodies just actually don't work.”

Ever wonder why some women’s backsides can be seen in sweatpants? Don’t blame the pants, blame women’s pants—at least that’s according to Lululemon founder, Chip Wilson. The athletic apparel company, Lululemon, sparked controversy six months ago when its stock took a beating due to news that too much of some women's backsides could be seen through the brand’s yoga pants. While trying to explain the reason for the sheer pants fiasco, Wilson told Bloomberg Television’s Street Smart, “Quite frankly, some women's bodies just actually don't work.” He went on to explain himself by stating, “It’s about the rubbing through the thighs, how much pressure is there.”
