We have all heard the news about Lululemon’s ‘sheer’ catastrophe this past week.  Apparently, in the beginning of March, their black Luon pants were received with slightly less coverage, showing more than appreciated while down-dogging on the mat.  I am not one to hold any grudges against Lululemon. I am, after all, one of their biggest fans (and investors) and I’ll continue to don their apparel; albeit I’ll dodge the pants for a while.

In the meantime, I’ve discovered another company that produces athletic apparel that will probably never have a problem with being too sheer.  Zaggora designs and produces workout pants, jackets and bra tops made with a light-weight, heat-inducing material referred to as ‘Celu-Lite technology fabric lining’.

The whole idea behind it is to burn more calories by raising your body temperature.  These pants really do hold the heat in and make you sweat like crazy.  They were tested at the Chelsea School at Brighton University to prove its effectiveness but it has been the consumers with the most enthusiasm about the results.  I admit they do take some getting used to.  But if someone says they help burn up to 11% more fat than regular workout pants, I’ll accept the challenge!
