The announcement came without any bells and whistles but eagle-eyed Lululemon stans noticed: over the last few months, shiny new badges started to pop up on the activewear brand's most popular styles (including its fan-favorite Align Pant) signifying the long-awaited arrival of more inclusive sizing.
Lululemon's size range previously went from 0-14 for most tops and bottoms — which, compared to brands like Girlfriend Collective and Superfit Hero, left much to be desired. Now, select styles (including tops, bottoms, and loungewear) extend up to a size 20 with certain bras offering options for E cups. Is there room for even more improvement? Absolutely. (Girlfriend, for example, goes up to a 6X.) But, for a brand that's long been synonymous with aspirational fitness apparel, it's still an important first step towards becoming truly inclusive to all bodies.
Ahead, shop some of the newly-extended styles we're eyeing.
