The styles on offer include cult-favourite Align and Fast & Free leggings, as well as the Define Jacket, among others

The extended sizing will be rolled out to more styles following the initial introductory styles

Lululemon has announced new, extended sizing across six of their core styles, going up to size UK 24. The move comes as the brand works to create a more inclusive experience for people who want to shop but, historically, have not been able to find their size in Lulu-garms.

‘I really believe we have to be a brand that accepts all,’ says Audrey Milligan Reilly, senior vice president of women’s design.

‘When I heard people say they couldn’t buy anything from Lululemon, that was like being punched in the heart. And as a creative you don’t want that. You want our guest to leave feeling confident, that they’ve got something that really functions for them in their life and adds that beauty to their outfitting.’

Available in six key styles initially, the brand has said that more is to come, but for now they start with their most popular pieces:

Align Pant 7/8

Wunder Train 7/8

Fast & Free 7/8

Ready to Rulu Pant

Long Distance Short Sleeve

Define Jacket

Having spent the last two to three years looking at body types, the design team behind Lululemon used 3D programs and live fit sessions with women of all different shapes and sizes to find how the fabric and fit would function.

‘This is actually just the start of the journey, we realise we’ve got much more work to do behind the scenes,’ says Milligan Reilly. ‘As a brand of innovation, we should always be curious. I think part of that is making everyone feel welcome.’

‘There really, truly shouldn’t be any limits for who we’re designing for. Everybody wants to feel confident and at the top of their game.’

Remember! Lululemon use US sizing online and in-store. If you’re looking for a UK 24, you’d pick size 20 on their site. For a UK 20, pick size 16. If you’re looking for a UK 18, you’d be a size 14 and so on and so forth.
