  • Y'all who are wondering. Yes, they only feel bad for themselves. Not for the other women they brought to this scam. This reflects the selfishness and stupidity that made them join this scam in the first place.

  • The luluroe leggings look like the leggings they have at a flea market back home (except the ones at the flea market aren’t ugly patterns). They are soft yet cheap as hell. But the people selling it are selling products from China they get for dirt cheap and sell for cheap.

  • Just terrible. They preach all this greatness and support, rules to abide by to make everything equal, But everyone of them is so sketchy. I remember when i worked for an MLM. Someone who worked with me, who I thought was a friend told me she was visiting me at my work to have lunch with me. Instead what she ended up doing was inviting my coworkers and other employees (that I couldn’t sell to in order to keep my day job) to her consultations. I literally felt cheated, like someone stole from me. I cant tell you the amount of friends and money i lost since I started the MLM business. Everyone thought i just wanted their money. Not to mention all the times I thought I actually felt the company was actually family. Then when i quit, the people i worked with, no calls no nothing, no one wants to even speak with you anymore. ( unless they’re trying to sell you something)Its almost like it was a gang. You quit the business, you give up on the people.

  • You can really tell the difference between the early pieces and the later (post cutting costs) pieces. Sadly, a woman in my mom’s church joined LLR when it was a really new company. The first waves she sold felt good and my mom loved them. However, after a while she started getting pieces like wet tissues paper. She lived in WA so she joined the lawsuit from WA but she never talked about it again after and sold off everything she had at a yard sale and gave the rest to good will. She tried to donate them to local places that give back to the community, but so many people were donating in our area LLR the thiftstores wouldn’t take them, besides goodwill.

  • I feel bad for these women. If only they put that much energy into their very OWN business and not working for Uber, door dash, doterra, LulaRue, etc…

    I never purchased a LLR legging – I don’t fall for those MLM companies nor do I engaging in buying them or working for them.

  • Man, i always used to think im smart and the people around me are smart, until my mummy fell for a pyramid scheme too, you guys might know about it, "Herbalife", the thing is after talking to her i realized its not about being smart or gullible, these people preyed on people's emotions, they dont sell a product they sell a dream, and talking to mummy it didnt feel like she was in for the "Get rich quick" aspect but because she wanted to be her own boss and do something with her life and all that, i realized how they had preyed on my mummy's entrepreneurial spirit and her feeling of not doing enough with her life… Watching the twinkle in her eye and watching her think shes helping other ladies lose weight and get healthy, it made me sad to think where it all was headed, she fought tooth and nails to protect it because of how emotionally and financially invested she was, it was sad to see her when she realized that it was all a shitshow, she was very sad for a while and was even embarrassed by it… These people have no soul and i hope they all go to jail or burn in hell 🙁 🙁 pardon my bad grammer my english is not good…

  • Well, most people trying to recruit other people into that shady business model will refer to the potential participant(if it's a woman) as "hun", researching the word i found out that it is used to mean "a member of a warlike Asiatic nomadic people who invaded and ravaged Europe in the 4th–5th centuries."
