At 38.75" chestal circumference, with not much in the bosom department, I too, am underserved by "Vicky", that sorority betch .... emoticon ... Not far from where I live, were I to be in the suggestive lingerie shopping mode, there are perfectly respectible local, small boutiques just for us ... so actually Vicky does local, probably sustainable, business a favor, via the back door ...

What he says makes it sound like - "You can only workout if you are already thin and fit." I don't do yoga so I don't wear yoga pants. All that I need are some compression shorts, shorts to go over them, and the appropriate shoes, bra, and top (with sleeves), etc.

I realize that businesses have a target audience so if this company want to focus on skinny people that do yoga that's fine. I mean, Victoria's Secret only serves people that are not top heavy (over a C cup).

My concern when choosing to buy clothing, I want quality and comfort. I don't care if it is stylish or not. If the material of the clothing is crappy and the company thinks I'm going spend $20 or $30 for it, then they are sadly mistaken. I want something that can withstand being worn regularly and can be washed more than once without falling apart. From the reviews of items at Lulumon (or however it is spelled), I'll pass on buying anything from them. Besides, I'm not skinny enough for their clothing. I'm not offended. I just don't care. I know I'm fat, but I am no longer obese and working to lose those last 15 to 16 lbs to be in the "normal" weight range.

If a company wants to improve their image and make their items available to people of varying sizes, then improve on the quality of the clothing that will attract women of different shapes and sizes.

Fair enough. There's a UA outlet near my house so that probably skews my perception of their prices. I'm also more into "streamlined" athletic wear that doesn't have a whole lot going on other than what it's meant to do.

UA costs more than lulu where I live...

they fit perfectly, the designs are gorgeous (most of the time) and I have plenty of other lower priced brands too and really, the only company that I boycott due to their shady business practices is walmart.

It is super super important to me in my life and profession to look unique and brightly coloured and perfectly matched when working out - even though I don't blink an eye over getting sweat, blood and plate dirt on my nice clothes - morals are not too important to me.

Someone needs to explain to me why those pants are superior to Underarmor or even the Target C9 Champion sub-brand. I went into a store once, saw a $40 price tag on a tank top that was on sale and walked out.

You could enjoy shopping at a store that you know--in its way--spreads the proverbial Spark by being more inclusive of different body types and shapes, in the future. We are ALL on a journey ...

The latest straw that breaks the "camel's back" ... these are yoga and workout pants, by the way ...he stated that some women's body shapes (fat OR thin --- it's in the thigh-rub) don't "work for his pants"
