WATCH: Rebecca Hains discusses Lululemon body-shaming controversy on TV News

Yesterday, I discussed the Lululemon controversy (and the petition that Marci Warhaft-Nadler and I launched) with both FOX 25 Boston and WBZ-TV (CBS) Boston. Have a look!

Boston Magazine also published a great interview with me here, and the Christian Science Monitor kindly published a piece I wrote on the topic, as well. Many thanks to the Boston journalism community for having a dialogue with us on this important topic!

  1. The only thing “wrong” is the product and the founder. If he had even half a brain about this he’d be working hard to ensure the yoga pants were as strong as iron and be courting all shapes and sizes of women (last time I checked bigger women spend as much or more than the smaller ones). It’s not about the quality of women’s thighs it’s about the poor quality of the brand. Have never supported them and will continue to not support them. Overpriced, bad ethics/attitude, poor quality. 3 strikes.
