Lululemon announced this week that Sheree Waterson, its top product executive, is stepping down after last month's see-through yoga pants fiasco.

Waterson's exit comes quickly on the heels of the Canadian company's large recall of Lululemon's popular black yoga pants, due to their sheerness.

A subsequent bending-over test made PR matters even worse.

The pants were recalled because they were unintentionally see-through - 17 percent of all women's yoga pants had the defect - and created a shortfall.

"We appreciate the many contributions that Sheree made during her time with Lululemon, particularly in the area of design," Lululemon's CEO Christine Day said.

In the meantime, guys everywhere will continue to stare at girls in yoga pants, who increasingly use them as a substitute for regular pants, sheer or not.
