Lawsuits Filed Against Maker of Popular Leggings

April 3, 2017

 Owners of LuLaRoe leggings generally say the same thing, they are the softest pair of leggings ever.  That softness has prompted a pair of class action lawsuit against the company by customers who say the famously soft leggings tear like "wet toilet paper." Two customers filed the lawsuit last week stating the company practices in unfair, illegal, and fraudulent business practices. Specifically, new leggings tore or developed holes after the very first wear and that the company knew they were selling a faulty product. The Business Insider claims an email from LuLaRoe head of production, Patrick Winget, admitted “the leggings may get holes, because we weaken the fibers to make them buttery soft. We have done all we can to fix them." Leggings sell for around $25 through direct sales through consultants.  Although LuLaRoe sales have grown 600% in over a year's time, a separate lawsuit is claiming the company charged the wrong sales tax on products as well as practices deceitful recruiting promises for consultants in how much money they can make.  The Better Business Bureau has given the company an F rating for ignoring consumer complaints. LuLaRoe says it advises it sellers to accept customers' returns and offer them an exchange or refund. But not all sellers follow those rules, according to some customer complaints.
