Touch, Thighs & Being Unwelcomed into Chip Wilson’s Pants.

Recently the Yoga athletic wear company Lululemon and its founder, Chip Wilson, has gone under grave criticism.

Disclaimer: I normally leave the Yoga articles to the lovely Yogi ladies and gents who know far more than I on the subject.

Today, however, this is about my thighs.

Rightfully so, from my perspective, as the opinions of the company have become down right offensive to the likes of me who not only occasionally wears the gear but appreciates the look of it as well. Over the years I have recommended it hands down to friends and family and strangers alike.

Not anymore.

Unfortunately, when a company starts criticizing my thighs that touch and claims that my body might not work for its products, I start to think I shall take my consumer dollars elsewhere. Melissa Harris-Perry from CNBC agrees and has written an open letter to the founder, Chip Wilson, on behalf of all of us gals “whose thunder thighs are just not welcome in his pants.”

Thigh gap or thigh touch—it is worth a watch.
