They were ripped a new online.
A sportswear brand created by Kate Hudson is slammed for a bizarre pair of gym leggings that show people’s bare buttocks – and are advertised as a match Perfectly with heels.
Titled “Spotlight Shaping Ass Out Capris,” the porous pants were launched by Fabletics, an activewear brand co-founded nine years ago by the “Glass Onion” star and Oscar-nominated “Almost Famous.”
However, they started going viral in October after superstar flautist Lizzo – who founded the body positivity promotion arm of the Yitty brand – posted a divisive Instagram video of herself dancing while shaking hands. bare buttocks.
Fast forward to Monday: Twitter trends erupted with viral comments like, “They’re for people who do pole fitness, inner thighs are needed.”
Well, Fabletics touts the leggings as “made famous by Lizzo” — and the perfect set for fashionistas hoping to “go viral.”
Accompanying photos show a model sporting the risque shapewear, which features “hat-like” cutouts that expose her bare thigh, crotch and behind like sartorial Swiss cheese. She even wears a matching pink bra and high heels, suggesting this jarring ensemble is an ideal workout outfit.
“It’s made from soft, shimmering lurex and features a breathable mesh interior,” reads the description for the perennial peep show. “Read: supportive and flattering, full compression. Spotlight on you, bitch.
These capri sun-ers don’t come cheap, running potential buyers upwards of $100. However, they’ve been discounted to around $20 so potential buyers can “prepare for gym season” without burning holes in their wallets.
Needless to say, the particular sportswear has been torn to shreds due to their impractical design, with many online fashion police judging it inappropriate for every occasion.
“I have a lot of questions about this outfit,” criticized a Twitter commenter.
“I can’t believe these are so small! I’m going to look so good on the treadmill,” sneered author Lucy Vine in a Tweet.
“I think I could buy them myself, I want to look stylish on my walks in the village”, mocked another.
A comment section comedian joked that the capris was ‘at the end of the line on the rower’.
“I have questions about mules…” wrote anothercriticizing the so-called training heels.
The Post reached out to Hudson’s rep for comment on the backlash.
Meanwhile, the criticisms weren’t just coming from online gawkers. A consumer who tried on the outfit said he couldn’t approve of it despite being a huge Lizzo fan.
“When I put them on they had looseness in areas that were NOT flattering on the thighs,” they wrote on the site. The waistband was thin and offered NO compression and made the not so flat stomach of mine worse.
They added, “It’s possible this style just isn’t for me, but I feel like with such an awesome $$, it’s almost impossible to make it look bad. These leggings did just that. They were returned.
This is not the first time that a brand has been accused of having holes in its design. In August, designer Shein also ripped over a pair of cut-off jeans with matching leggings, which critics called “dumb” and “weird.”
