Astro Wunder Under Crop II
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.

OH LULU, SO DISAPPOINTED!! : (
I purchased these pants in store in the black/sashico cross inkwell color. I have 8 pairs of wunder unders and groove pants that I've bought over the years - my favorite wunder unders are from 7 years ago!! I was SO excited to wear these on a hiking double date, and was completely mortified when I bent over to stretch mid-way and had my friend tell me that everyone could see everything. They're incredibly sheer and completely see through. I know I bought the correct size, because I told the salespeople about my concerns regarding the sheerness and asked whether I should size up - they said the 2 I had on fit me perfectly.
I have a gazillion tops, bras, and pants from lulu and am never disappointed. However, I am incredibly sad and disappointed in Lulu for this terrible pair of pants, that caused such embarrassment and disappointment in the brand. DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS YOU WANT THE WORLD TO SEE YOUR UNDERGARMENTS CLEARLY.

I love the style of these crops, and I wanted them to work out so bad but I didn't even need to bend over to see how sheer these are. The quality of lulu crops are so bad now, it's very disappointing.

Mine aren't sheer, super comfy but too long.
I bought the black/sashico cross inkwell rugged blue/inky floral ghost inkwell bumble berry crops as soon as I saw them on the site. I was super excited to get another pair of astro wunder crops so purchased before any reviews were posted.
Mine aren't sheer. Or atleast I don't think they are -- I always wear black or nude underneath so haven't really done a true sheer test I guess. The legs etc seem nice and opaque.
The fabric is super soft and they are very comfy. I am 5'1" and they are too long. I may go get them hemmed. I also wish I had held out for the solid black pair as I don't really love the patterned waist but otherwise, all good.

NOT OK TO WEAR IN PUBLIC
I read the reviews before, and still decided to buy these because they looked so comfortable. They aren't just slightly sheer, they are unwearable. So disappointed!!!!
