Wunder Under Crop *Reversible
Love the color...disappointed with the fit
I purchased my first pair of Wunder Under crops in the beginning of the year. They are reversible Dark purple on one side and the (I believe) Raspberry glo light on the other. I have read that "Some of our reversible Wunder Unders are made to give a sneak peak from the black side to the coloured side". For whatever reason, this was not communicated with the educator in the store. I tried on a size 6..which is what I would normally wear in pants and other lulu crops as they are supposed to have a snug fit. The girl working in the fitting room told me that they were"too tight around my bum" because when I bent over while wearing on the dark side...the hot pink side showed through a bit. I thought they fit great, but I trusted her judgement because she did work there, after all. I tried a size 8 and ended up buying them because of what the sales associate had told me. Now, I am really disappointed. I can't wear them during workouts because they are too big and slide down. We as customers trust that the people working in the stores know the products they are selling and hope that they are knowledgeable about the fit of the garment. I LOVE these pants to lounge around in. The colors are awesome and I am giving these 4 stars because I know I would have loved them in the size 6. But, I am disappointed that I trusted an associate that clearly did not know her merchandise :(

The color is great, the fit is great. After reading some of the reviews, I find zero issues with these. I ordered the same size I always order.. Mind you, I am petite, in shape and can wear yoga pants. If it looks like two raccoons are fighting over a bag of popcorn then please don't wear em' :) nor give them a bad rating. Of course they will be see thru and have issues... Otherwise, great product.

I LOVE these pants...they are so comfy :) The only problem I have with them is not a fault of lulu, but of my own, that the lighter side does nothing to hide the bumps on my bum.

No way to see my unders through these Wunders!
I can't stress how happy I am with these pants!! I bought them because my long wunder unders were just becoming too hot for barre and yoga in Florida. I researched like crazy, tried these on in the store and immediately fell in love. Of all my lulu pants, these are by far the most flattering!!
First of all: I'm not sure what all gripe is about regrading the cellulite. I know I have some imperfections on the back of my legs and didn't see a spot. The assistant and I in the store even looked for it! Second: They are in no way see-through. The material feels a little thicker than my other wunder unders I purchased last year. Finally (and most importantly): Lulu has seemed to fix the problem they we're having with the gusset and camel toes. If this helps, I'm 5'4, 124lbs and a solid 6 in lulu. Can't wait for more colors to come out! Thanks Lulu!

Not for me!
As others have stated, these crops showed every imperfection. I couldn't get them off fast enough! These crops were extremely unflattering (on me). For reference I am 6'0" tall and lean (150 lbs). I usually were an 8 very comfortably. Also I don't really find them that reversible. The way the seaming is stitched makes them look insideout on the reverse side. Just slapping a Lulu label on the inside doesn't make them reversible. I need some crops, but these just didn't do it for me. The quality just isn't there. I have some Grove pants (pre-sheerness issues) and those are GREAT; super flattering! The wunder unders were a nightmare! They are getting shipped back TODAY!

The reversible WUs are getting tinier! I'm a size 4 in all my other lulu bottoms, but the aquamarine ones reversible to Beach blanket blue were just too tight all over, and cut in at the calves. Had to return them.

I had gotten these in the black but after one hand wash they were all pilly and see thru. I tried to return them but luluemon did not accept them. I would not recommend them.

Not what I was hoping for
First of all, I LOVE the idea of reversible pants. In fact, I have a pair of full length reversible WUs I bought last September, and I wear them all the time. I tried these on in my local store hoping I had found the same pants in a cropped length.
Unfortunately, these are NOT the same as the awesome WUs from last fall. The fabric is totally different - it doesn't feel like regular luon but more like a tightly-woven cotton. Yes, you need to go up a size - I tried these on in a 6 rather than my usual 4, and I still didn't like them. The thickness of the fabric makes these crops somewhat inflexible - and they are just not flattering.
I went into my store specifically looking for these pants but ended up empty-handed. I'll keep looking and hoping that eventually LL will reissue those awesome WUs I bought last fall in a cropped length!

Just too thick
What I really wanted was the single layer non reversible wunder under crop but those seem to have been phased out. So I bought the "reversible" version instead. I've gone biking, yoga, taken a run in them and honestly they are just too thick, I feel like I am wearing some sort of body shaping spanx = not the comfort I expect from lulu. I would like a little more "give" in the fabric. Also, the problem with all the reversible wunder under crops has been that ultimately I just want to wear the darker colors - I could care less about the option to wear light blue or any other light color...some of the reversibles feature patterns that really aren't all that cute either.
Just bring back the single layer wunder under crop and keep it simple, solid seasonal colors. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
