Just a few months after Lululemon pulled yoga pants from shelves because they were too sheer, costing them million in sales, the company is fielding new complaints about quality.

The Canadian company had blamed the issue in the spring on a style change and production issues. But there are recent complaints on the Lulu­lemon Facebook page and website about pants that are still too sheer. There also are complaints about pants pilling after a few months of wear and about seams coming apart.

The company's pants can cost $100 or more.

Lululemon Athletica Inc. did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

“Lululemon will certainly face new challenges if the pilling and seam problems are real,” Sam Poser, an analyst for Sterne Agee, said in a research note.
