TORONTO, June 9 (Reuters) - Canadian yogawear retailer Lululemon Athletica Inc's quarterly profit more than doubled, helped by a 6 percent rise in total comparable-store sales on a constant-dollar basis.

The company said earnings for the first quarter ended May 3 rose to $47.8 million, or 34 cents per share, from about $19 million, or 13 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose about 10 percent to $423.5 million. (Reporting by Solarina Ho in Toronto and Amrutha Gayathri in Bengaluru; Editing by Ted Kerr)
