All about the astro pant

What are the lululemon astro pants you ask? A cult classic lululemon yoga pant with a unique design feature. Surprisingly they are no longer available. The pants are a straight leg luon yoga pant with a fold over waistband that can be customized. In general, these pants are very flattering around the waistline. 

Why this popular lululemon pant was discontinued

A slim, straight leg pant design. lululemon astro yoga pants have a unique fold-over, customizable waist. This pant design was so special that lululemon held patents on them. In 2012, lululemon sued Calvin Klein for patent infringement of their Pant design.

Much to disappointment of lulu fanatics everywhere, astro pants  where eventually discontinued. The cause of the discontinuation was ultimately due to  lululemon astro pant see through controversy.
In the light of controversy, the see-through issue had nothing to do with the design of the pants themselves. Correspondingly, the real issue was the fabric quality. Under those circumstances, this design featured in many national publications, and ultimately the pant name became tarnished. Obviously the astro die-hard fans where very upset.

  • just say no to chafing with flat seams
  • our signature luon fabric has four-way stretch and wicks away sweat

Another Lululemon Sneak Peek Video was posted. Is that orange Flash? It seems much more orangey and not so much coral like flash. I’m really liking how the light blues in the space dye portion plays off of the orange.
