Lululemon Case Study

profilekyapep

Lululemon Athletica (Lululemon) is a yoga and athletic attire company, with over 200 stores and a

presence in 14 countries. In recent years it has been faced with a number of public relations nightmares,

including a recall of 17% of its Luon pants due to excessive sheerness. Additional issues arose, when

founder and former CEO Chip Wilson made a public statement tying the sheer yoga pants issue to the

size of the woman who tried to wear the pants, stirring a public outcry. A former employee confirmed that

part of the brand strategy was to avoid the selling of larger-sized clothing. Additional outrage arose when

women tried to return the defective pants, and they were asked to bend over to demonstrate the

sheerness of the product. Additionally, investor concerns arose and lawsuits were filed due to executive

bonuses that occurred just prior to the recall.
