Funny, but not getting what the cutesy contrived names are?

Also funny that some stores were requiring customers to don the pants and bend over so the staff could check what they could see. In related news, sheer hysteria in malls as hordes of men were reported to be applying for jobs as Lululemon bottom checkers.

I think her joke is "bottom" line.

It seems that every young woman around here is wearing yoga pants for everything other than work. When I heard of these transparent ones you can bet I was on the lookout but haven't found anyone so out of it that she didn't look in the mirror and decide-maybe not-before she ventured out into the sunshine.
