LuLaRoe Leggings

Fun and Unique patterns

LuLaRoe leggings come in a variety of fabrics (manufactured abroad). Rarer patterns are dubbed “unicorns.” Consultants may not have more than one of a given pattern.

They are often described as comfortable, modest, and of good quality with a great fit.

“Like butter”
The leggings are often described has having a buttery texture that is super soft.

Common complaints

No returns and difficult exchanges
Most consultants appear to offer exchanges with the merchandise they have in stock, but they don’t allow returns.

Inconsistent quality and fit
Products are made of different fabrics, in different countries, and are of varying quality. Some of this appears to be part of the interest in LuLaRoe sales model (scarcity of certain types of fabric shiny vs tshirt etc), but it also manifests in many customers being unhappy with quality and hit or miss on particular fit.

Inconsistent pricing
Different leggings and different consultants will sell at different prices. Also, prices may be different in different social networks — if a lot of people are selling then prices will go down. Check out ebay for lower prices (here’s pricing for sold leggings on ebay to give you an idea).

    I became aware of LLR after I received an invite on FB. I purchased leggings and several types of shirts and skirts. I have a marketing degree and thought “wow” I could be a consultant. What concerns me is the rapid growth and over saturation in the market. There is the additional cost of using the company’s billing software, the cost of mailing and time invested in addition to the added costs mentioned in the article. Also the delay in getting product because the leggings cannot be made fast enough or onboarding is delayed because there are so many who want to join. My conclusion is that the founders are making the most money but will the business ever fall on its face? There are no guarantees or at least none that I know of.
