We all remember when Lululemon had to take their overpriced leggings and yoga pants off the market, because they were essentially see-through. It was a sad, sad day for men everywhere, and a hilarious day for women who weren’t dumb enough to go out in translucent pants. After the pants were modified and tested, however, women were finding that they were still giving the folks behind them a $92 show.
Lululemon co-founder Chip Wilson, fed up with society’s demands that women cover their rears, lashed back with something we, here at TSM, have been saying (JOSHINGLY) since the glory days: maybe you’re just too fat for leggings. Still, it’s one thing for judgey 19-year-olds to say it, and quite another for the owner of a multi-million dollar company to do so.
“Frankly, some women’s bodies just don’t actually work for it…They don’t work for some women’s bodies… it’s really about the rubbing through the thighs, how much pressure is there over a period of time, how much they use it.”
Did he just say there’s a “thigh gap only” clause attached to his product? Since when is this a thing? Since when do men notice thigh gaps? You know what? I do #MindTheGap, because I thought this was just one of those things like visible ribs and pronounced clavies that only girls noticed about one another. I was recently informed BY MY BROTHER that not only do guys notice the thigh gap, but there are two different kinds! My thigh gap takes on neither the “triangle,” nor the “rectangle,” though. Get it? It doesn’t exist. TSTC.
If you’ve found yourself filled with rage, fret not, my sweets. Check out the face Wilson’s wife shot him as those words fell out of his mouth.
Homeboy’s not getting laid for awhile.
