CHIP WILSON WOMENS BODIES

The Real Reason Chip Wilson Left Lululemon

A lot of people will directly correlate Chip Wilson's decision to stand down as Lululemon Non-Executive Chairman to comments he made in November, when he redirected a question about the quality of the fabric of the company's pants, suggesting that they may not be appropriate for all women's body types. His resignation will be called a necessity, a firing, and a forced move. This is an over-simplified view of what is really happening at Lululemon.

The Week In Review: "Namaste, Thunder Thighs"

In an interview with Bloomberg TV on Tuesday, Lululemon founder Chip Wilson explained that when the company's pants become see-through or start to pill, the problem may have more to do with the shape and size of the woman wearing the garment than the garment itself. "Some women's bodies just actually don't work for [the pants]," Wilson said. "...it's really about the rubbing through the thighs, how much pressure is there over a period of time and how much they use it." In other words, don't blame the "In the Flow" crops. They can't help it if your legs are just too flabby for proper athletic-wear functioning.
