Going to the gym? Dress like you mean it.

Athletic gear company Lululemon Athletica recently came under fire after it removed several styles of its popular yoga pants from shelves and online inventory due to the thin, revealing Luon material the pants were made of.

The products in question, including the popular Wunder Under and Groove pants, made up 17 percent of Lulu workout pants in stores at the time of the recall, and can cost the brand’s enthusiasts upward of $80 according to the company’s website. The question is, is it really worth it to pay the extra money for workout wear — whether it’s Lululemon or any other high-end brand?
