Where to buy girl's / young women's leggings

I can see Old Navy carrying them. My daughter wants Lululemon but I'm only good with it if it has a warranty against tear.

Any other good brands that we should consider that don't break the bank account? How good is Lole as its founder seems to have worked at lululemon before.

Lululemon is too pricey:

I asked my daughter and she suggested leggings from Aritizia (TNA brand). They should be from $30-50. If she wants lululemon, perhaps that's the way to go...they do warranty for defects. Better to buy something expensive that you know she will wear than to get cheap stuff that stays in her closet (this is from experience). ;)

Thanks Mars2012. I suggested Lole and she still wants Lululemon. :( It's going to come from her allowance / fund, she reminded me. Oh yeah, TNA is such a craze in her circle of friends.

Whatever you do, make sure they're not see through. Get your wife to check or something.

I was heading for lunch the other day and there was a Chinese girl walking down Queen street in basically panties with a bit of colour over her legs, along with her bf. I honestly don't think she noticed.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

If you catch Aritzia sales, sometimes the leggings are as cheap as <$15-20. I buy them regularly just because they're of great quality. I don't know if there is warranty (warranty on a pair of leggings?) but they are in good quality after multiple washes.

On a side note, I'm surprised that young girls need lululemon leggings and refuse anything else. I'm sure I've bought cheap leggings are Ardene's all the way through university.

A possible alternative to Lululemon would be Titika (another Canadian company). Their legging prices are a tiny bit cheaper (by ~$10) and also offer complimentary hemming.

They also have sales for 25% off, that may help as well. I have a couple of their leggings and they've been great thus far. Not sure about warranty as I've never had anything rip. However I can attest to Lululemon's warranty as I had a pair of crops rip on me and after a unsuccessful repair, they replaced it.

Just keep in mind titka is made in China.
