Do All Lululemon Clothes Have Size Dots?

However, not all Lululemon items have size dots. Most clothing will have a size dot, although it may be hidden. They are typically out of sight on the inner waistband or inside a pocket.

There was one production year when size dots were not included. However, Lululemon decided that wasn’t ideal and returned to using size dots on clothing.

Certain items that don’t have size dots include:

  • Some tank tops, especially ones with built-in bras
  • Sweaters without pockets
  • Many reversible items
  • Accessories

  • Plastic over the size dot. Fake products may have a peelable piece of plastic protecting the faux size dot.
  • Size dots are more like stickers. They can be peeled off easily.
  • Size dots are in the wrong location. Size dots are usually hidden in pockets or the inside waistband, but can also be on the calf.
  • Print numbers are incorrect. They do not exist or are mislabeled on the pants.
  • Size dots are not hidden in pockets. When items have pockets, but the size dot is not inside the pocket, it’s more likely to be fake.
