Goodbye, Lululemon yoga pants. Hello, colorful workout alternatives.
It was a sad day for anybody that’s ever said “namaste” when Lululemon recalled some of its yoga pants for being too sheer last month. Speaking of peep shows, you’re trying to see the silver lining. We’re here to help. We uncovered other cool workout apparel you can turn to, from body-hugging capris to a totally smoldering bra. Add gear and tech helpers, and your exercise routine is altogether exciting.
