Lululemon Deserves the Hype

Sometimes things that are popular, deserve to be.

Leggings, jackets, shorts and the trendiest lunch bags you’ve ever seen, Lululemon has it all. Recently, however, the brand has come under some scrutiny for a variety of reasons, even from former fans. I’m here to say that this brand deserves its popularity.

For those who somehow aren’t familiar with the brand, Lululemon makes a variety of semi-luxury athleisure wear that has become very trendy. If you look around anywhere, you are bound to see a couple of people wearing an outfit made entirely out of the brand. So, what’s the problem? Why are so many people hating on Lulu?

For one, the prices. The most popular item at Lulu, the Align leggings, will run you about $90 to $110. Some of the jackets can cost $180. These prices seem can be unattainable or unreasonable for people just looking for a pair of leggings to lounge in, but when invested in these leggings can prove their worth.

The thing about this though is that depending on how frequently you wear them, the leggings basically can only cost you $1-2 per pair, and since they are very high quality, they will last you a long time, years even, so you are to get your money worth. For example, I have a pair of Align leggings that I wear at least once a week and they show no sign of wear and tear. I also have very specific tastes in fabric and Lulu’s Align fabric is incredibly smooth and to me, is so comfortable feels like a second skin.

Not only are their clothes high quality, but they are also specifically made for specific sports. Their Align line, made for yoga, features specially made fabric that moves with your body, instead of constricting it. They have products made for running that have glow-in-the-dark features for easy visibility in early morning runs and sweat-wicking fabrics so that they aren’t uncomfortable or chafing. As a dancer, I feel that wearing their items is much easier to move in as opposed to other brands I have tried.

Unfortunately, a lot of the hate for the brand comes as a byproduct of the general trend of mocking things that are popular with teenage girls. Memes will circulate around making fun of “Lulu girls” who are just wearing clothes that they enjoy wearing. I personally am sick and tired of being reduced down to just the clothes I like, or the trends I participate in, and this kind of mockery is severely outdated. If it doesn’t hurt you then why should you make fun of what somebody else wears?

About the Contributor
Malia Rodriguez
Malia Rodriguez, Senior Staff Writer
Maila Rodriguez is a sophomore at Robinson and a senior staff writer for Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff. When writing, Rodriguez tends to lean towards Opinion and A&E stories, where she infuses her distinctive perspective and voice on a variety of topics. "[I like] writing opinion stories and A&E stories; [last year,] I even won an award for my review "M3gan" was Mediocre," Rodeiguez said. Aside from using her pen and paper, she loves to socialize with her friends and practice her editing skills on Adobe Photoshop in class. Rodriguez is also very involved at Robinson as a member of multiple clubs including Marine Biology, Photography and Model U.N. Outside of Robinson, she partakes in ballet for Kari and DiMarco South Dance. When Rodriguez isn't writing or practicing ballet, you can find her listening to her favorite artists such as Taylor Swift and Lana Del Ray while crocheting or painting. Her paintings tend to be still life watercolors and you will often see her drawing inspiration from her surroundings. "I'll usually paint what I see around me so like right now I've been painting my cat," Rodriguez said. In the future, Rodriguez has not decided what she wants to pursue yet, but plans on making a positive impact on the world by helping others in her future field of profession. "I want to do something that helps a lot of people like something with a charity organization or I want to be like a lawyer in the future," Rodriguez said. "I want to especially help people who are less privileged, and you know, can't afford to help you."
