Jezebel blogger Laura Beck, a self-described size-18 yogi, just posted the rant of the year (century?) about Lululemon’s lack of plus-size yoga gear. I’ll let her do the talking:
Lululemon, like many major retailers before them, likes to pretend that a size 4 is the size of the average woman in the United States. Despite much evidence to the contrary, they cater their overpriced wears to an America that doesn’t exist, and have no desire to change their dumb-ass ways. Therefore, I meant what I said about them kissing my fat ass — go ahead, Lululemon, I’m waiting for you in Downward Dog.
… It’s just another way in which the world gives fat people mixed messages — lose weight, fatty — but, uh, do it in an xxl Hefty bag in the corner of a dark room SO THAT THE SUN SHALL REACH YOUR HIDEOUS FAT FOLDS. If exercising is the mythical path to skinniness, doesn’t it make sense to give fat people workout clothes that fit so we can be less fat? Yes, I think you can all see what I’m getting at here (or at least Lululemon’s new CEO should be able to — he/she must be a magical yogi unicorn who poops goji berries and pisses coconut water, after all): I blame you for obesity, Lululemon.
