Those Lululemon sheer pants are back -- and cost $92
The company says it is 'celebrating failure' with a patched-up version of the bottoms called the 'Second Chance Pant.'
Lululemon is selling a patched-up version of the bottoms, called the "Second Chance Pant," for $92.
That's not much less than the $98 the pants initially sold for before they were pulled from stores. The revamped version hit stores in mid-October.
For the "Second Chance Pant," the company has sewn an extra layer of fabric onto the back and added strips of see-through mesh along the legs.
The tag on the bottoms reads: "These pants were inspired by a need to find functional and beautiful design solutions for our sheer pants. This is what celebrating failure looks like!"
The company explains further, "We added mesh panels on the side and a luon fabric panel across the back to give you the coverage you need in Down Dog."
Lululemon confirmed to Business Insider Tuesday that the bottoms are made from the company's recalled yoga pants.
Lululemon's recall in March, which affected 17% of its inventory, is expected to cost the company as much as $67 million in revenue this year.
Lululemon rolled out new pants with a supposedly thicker fabric, called "Full-On Luon," in July. But some customers have been complaining that the new pants are still too sheer and that the material began pilling after only a couple of wears, Business Insider first reported.
Lululemon's founder, Chip Wilson, suggested last week that some women's bodies are to blame for the ongoing problems with the pants. He later posted a video apology for his remarks and begged customers to give the company a second chance.

those with huge buts and cellulite
should not be wearing lulu pants!
The President of Lu Lu Lemon sounds like a Lu Lu Looser! And the women that continue to purchase these poor quality overpriced pants are Lu Lu Lemmings.
Wake up and buy a lose fitting pair of sweat pants. You will be better off, and so will the viewers in most cases.
With all the comments about larger sized women not wearing this type of attire I have
to concur. Being a larger sized I have never tried to wear something that clings or
exaggerates what might be better concealed. The old ski pants, tights, jeggins,
not any tunic or sweatshirt can begin cover that stuff. A decent pair of jeans works better
than trying to be "fashionable" in some cockamamie getup some woman hating
"fashion" designer came up with to increase their profit margin with a "new" trend.
The other end of the spectrum is the sweat pants, just a good mirror and common sense
or is that asking too much?
barnam had it right I guess.
Such form fitting views.
Keep it girls us guys like it.
Don't buy the patch models unless your overweight and need the extra blow out protection.
