After years of being called out for lacking extended sizes, Lululemon is finally doing something about it.
The activewear brand, which has been around since 1998, just announced that they’re offering six of its core styles in sizes 0-20 and by the end of 2021, the majority of its women’s clothing should be available in these inclusive sizes.
“It’s a start. Six of our top styles are now available in sizes 0-20, and there’s much more coming soon. Inclusion is a journey, and we know we have work to do. We’re committed to launching more inclusive gear every season,” reads the Instagram announcement.
The six styles that will be available include the Fast and Free Tight, the Define Jacket, the Align Pant, the Wunder Train High Rise Tight, the Ready to Rulu Jogger, and the Long Distance Short Sleeve Tee.
“Doing this type of work isn’t a case of just flipping a switch,” senior vice president of women’s designs at Lululemon said. “We’ve actually spent the last 2-3 years re-looking at body types. It’s about understanding how that material maps on the body” and “engineering for the body in motion.”
