It's stupid. My shorts and shirts are beat up, sweated in, and washed once a week. I have five pair of everything I wear, because that's how many times I work out every week. It all gets washed hot and dried hot once a week too, so it doesn't smell. It takes a beating. There is no way you could convince me that an $80 pair of polyester shorts is somehow any better at dealing with this kind of treatment than the $10 pair of shorts I bought from Target. If I were to replace everything with stuff from lulu to last me a week, I'd be looking at something like $500+ for new stuff. That's a gym membership for two years.

This is so wrong I don't even know where to start. If you're worried about keeping yourself cool during hot yoga, you shouldn't be wearing lulu anything, as they don't make any true compression gear. This kind of clothing is the absolute best way to keep yourself cool because of the way the fabric, being so close and tight against your skin, brings all of the moisture to the surface, allowing it to dry faster, which is what actually cools you off. A simple $20 lycra singlet would do better than anything you could buy from lulu.
