Astro Wunder Under Crop II
What happened astro wu's??
I am so disappointed. I was absolutely thrilled when Lulu came back with the astro wunder unders. I've been waiting two years for these babies to return!
I bought the all black crops this past Saturday and wore them for the first time yesterday. Within hours, I noticed that there was a thread coming out on my inner right thigh. As soon as I got home, I took my astros off so I could take a closer look. I was hoping that it was just one loose thread that I could trim. No such luck. About two inches of the inner seam are actually disconnected and the thread is actually the seam itself unravelling. I don't understand! My thighs don't even touch!
Lulu, what happened to the quality? The sheerness doesn't even bother me because I love these crops so much, but I can't wear crops that won't stay together.

won't stay up
I love the color but that's how far it goes. I used it for lounging and errands today and the waistband wouldn't stay up, I constantly had to readjust it, imagine how they would perform for yoga or lifting. I had one from 2 years ago and that one was awesome, this one just failed big time. Now I can't return it cause I've worn it and taken the tags off, so disappointed.

Could have been perfect
These are my very favourite crops so I was super excited for them...but I was disappointed as soon as I tried them on. With the slightest bend the bottom becomes completely sheer!
I checked my pairs at home to make sure I got the right size before ordering. I even checked the order I got in January to make sure I got the right fabric (Full On Luon or Luxtreme) and size since I've heard rumours of the fabric quality going down.
I cannot believe just how poor the fabric has become in the Lululemon products. These will definitely be going back to the store tonight.

Too sheer in the rear
Did not read the reviews walked into a store and saw they were on sale. I did not try them on picked up my normal size and they are see through! I guess they cant be returned or exchanged since they were on sale so they will go to the back of my closet. Not what i expect from a store like this!

just wear some underwear people
I love these pants. The waistband is the BEST on the market. Maybe they are see thru when I bend over but I decided i can put on some VS low rise hipsters and the see thru issue is totally gone and no panty lines either.

I loved the fit on these, but after wearing them for a month I happened to catch myself in the mirror in bar class while stretching and was shocked to see how sheer they were. I took them to a store and was told by the SA how strange it was that I was experiencing sheerness because there were "no known issues" with these pants, and that whenever there's a problem with sheerness Lulu pulls the item off the shelves. Judging from the other reviews this is clearly not the case. Anyway, at the SA's suggestion I tried on a size up from my usual size (even though I'm the same size for every single crop/pant I own from Lulu...) and nope - still sheer.

Great fit but see through when bending over
I love the Astro waistband. It fits so comfortably and I love the design. When I first wore them, I was in love. Then I bent over and you can definitely see everything. I wear black thongs with these and you can see it all. The only way to wear these and not show people your bottom is to wear full coverage underwear, but then you get the underwear lines (no thanks). I am totally bummed about this because I love, love, looooove the style and fit. But why do you have to be so sheer? I tried a size up at the store after I realized how see through mine were and the size up was too loose on my waist. So sizing up wasn't an option. I have virtually no butt either, so I'm not squeezing myself into these. These are my first lululemon pants and I'm devastated. I thought the sheerness dilemma was resolved...

Sad to join the other bad reviews
I LOVED these crops originally because they were so comfortable and the fun waistband was great to show off and match with other pieces of my outfit.
After 2 or 3 wears, I was at the gym with my boyfriend and he let me know that the crops were COMPLETELY see-through, like you can see the color of not only my undies but my skin through it. After going home and taking it off, I realized how see-through they were even without being stretched out on my body.
I am sure I did not buy a size too small given I sized up, and I take great care when washing my Lulu items since they are so pricey for a college student like me. I am sad to splurge on a pair of crops at Lulu and now I cannot even wear them comfortably.
I still love LLL but I wish they would solve this issue once and for all.

Love these pants!!!!!
After reading allll of the bad reviews, I decided to give these pants a try anyway. Honestly, I cant figure out what people dislike about them at all. They fit perfectly and the fabric is not see through in the least bit. I've only washed them twice, but I haven't notice any pilling or problems yet. I LOVE this waistband so much, its the perfect height and lays really smooth. I ordered a 6 which is my typical Lulu size and they fit true to size. LOVE LOVE LOVE these, I may even order another color!

I love these capris!
These are my first pair of Lululemon capris and I love them. They fit great and make me feel thin (but with some "muscle" definition). I purchased these in store and got worried after coming home and reading the bad online reviews. I did the bend over test and it's true you can somewhat see your thong. However, it is not that obvious. Perfectly fine for working out or going out in public. Just don't wear a bright pink thong and spend all of your time touching your toes. I got a size 6 (black) and I'm 146lb and 5'8.
