Lululemon Now Makes Fancy Beer to Go with Its Fancy Yoga Pants

Feeling down? Lululemon is there for you. The activewear giant is now making Hugged Sensation workout clothes, which, according to its website copy, have been "engineer[ed] ... to feel like a comfortable embrace from a close friend." The garments in the collection will, said blurb promises, "keep you feeling poised and balanced throughout your workout (and, let's be real, your day)." Presumably, they also pair well with headphones playing Ryan Adams's version of 1989. There, there.

The Hugged Sensation pieces are one option in the retailer's Sensation Innovation collection, which aims to offer a variety of fits depending on customers' preferences — the other options are Tight, Held-In, Relaxed, and Naked, not to be confused with sheer. We've reached out to a rep for the brand for more information on how the collection came to be, and will update this when we hear back. In the meantime, those of us who loathe being touched are apparently out of luck.
