Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luon
I bought these pants three months ago and was so excited to finally make the purchase. I was so happy with them and reccomended them to everyone I knew. I loved how they fit and how they felt. This is why I could not be any more disappointed in how quickly they ripped :( I know these pants are supposed to last and be made really well so I was shocked. They are only three months old and already they have a hole in the knee. I wish I had read more reviews before buying these pants because they are way too expensive to only last three months. They didn't even make it 6 months.

Extremely itchy and coming apart
As a long time lulu lover, I've had many pairs of WU crops. This pair that I've had for a few months now have really disappointed me.
They are SO itchy, to the point where they can't be worn for more than a couple of minutes (forget about working out in them). The crotch area is also coming apart. Certain parts are see through as well.
My older pairs have held up awesome but these are disappointing. They were purchased for daily walks and lounging around and haven't met their standards at all :(

Very poor quality material
I bought a pair of these about 4 months ago with the intent of using them for walking and jogging but noticed after wearing them the first time that the material is nearly wafer thin and nearly see-through! They are meant to be form fitting/tight and I purchased them from the store in London, Ontario and was reassured by two sales ladies that I had the right size but was embarrassed when I headed out for a walk with my friend who kindly pointed out that she could see the pattern on my underwear right through the material!!!

I'm so frustrated. I have been wanting a pair of Lulu crops for the longest time. I went into the store and bought this pair after trying on several different styles. They were perfect so I thought, but after the initial wear, they start to fall down. I'm constantly hiking them up. I wish someone would have told me to size down. I bought a 6 and definitely would buy a 4 if I could do it all over. The other thing that frustrates me is the way the fabric balls up in areas of friction?aka between the thighs. For such a pricy product, I would expect better quality.

I have waited a long time before deciding to review my lululemon wear. I got my first pair of wunder unders a year ago.
I have since bought an additional pair of wunder unders, the groove pant, in the flow crops, many pairs of "light as air" undies and run: swifly tech racerback.
I LOVE lululemon wear. I was starkly against lulu for a while, I figured... it's just athletic wear, I don't get it. I bought most of my athletic gear from target, Nike, Under Armour, etc. However, I got my first lulu outfit as a gift (as I said, a year ago). It's a game changer. The full-on Luon feels AMAZING. Like butter on your skin. Don't pass them up!
I have been extremely careful when taking care of my lulus. I wash in cold water on gentle/hand wash cycle (though this is how I was all of my dark clothes) and hang or lay flat to dry. I never wash my lulu gear with towels, as I have heard that can lead to pilling.
So, in the past year my gear has held up GREAT. They show no signs of wear or tear and only one pair I have (the oldest pair) has shown the slightest bit of pilling where my thighs rub together. Also, I wear these things A LOT. At least once a week. I LIVE in my lulu gear, at home, at the gym/yoga studio and occasionally at school.
I know I have read many reviews about poor quality, and it makes me sad. It originally deterred me from buying any lulu gear for a while. Once I received some gear as a gift, I couldn't go back. I--- personally have not experienced any poor quality, and hope I don't!

My favorite crops
I have several pairs of these and love them! I found that different colors/patterns fit a little differently, but close enough not to change sizes. I like the luon fabric (fit and feel) best on the ones I got years ago but I haven't had problems with pilling, sheerness, or seams on the more recent pairs (including wee are from space and cadet blue quilt). My 2 oldest pairs look a little worn, but it's been years and I wear/wash them all the time... to be expected.

I have been a loyal Lululemon customer for years, the Wunder Under Crops are among my favorite Lulu purchases and I've acquired quite a collection over the last few years. That being said, I am very disappointed with the quality of the Wunder Unders over the past year and a half. My older Wunder Under pants have a thicker fabric and are not see through when I bend over, whereas the newer Wunder Under pants have a fabric that noticeably thiner, feels cheaper, and is see through when I bend over. Furthermore, the last pair I purchased over the summer has terrible pilling on the crotch/thigh area. I really hope Lululemon realizes that customers have been increasingly disappointed with the quality of their pants and act on this. For $82 a pants, I want quality and longevity, not just the cute Lululemon logo on the bottom of a crop that is see through and is comes undone after a handful of wears.

Disappointing first experience
My sister is an avid fitness and gym type person and swears by LLL. In May I ended up in a LLL store with her and decided to give it a try. Although I love the fit and comfort of these crops the piling is very disappointing. I have worn them running twice and they were great and not see through (which I was worried about). Other than that I have worn them maybe a dozen times to run errands, and walk my very small dogs. I washed them twice by themselves and hung to dry to avoid the piling, but to no avail they are piling. For the price I would expect better quality and longevity.

My favorite pair of crops
These are my go-to pair of crops. I own two pairs in all black. They fit almost perfect and after several intensive workouts they have held up really really well. Definitely go for the Full on Luon. They seem much better than the cotton. The only think I noticed is that pet hair really likes these as well.

Don't trust these...or the GEC
3 months after I bought these, they started to come apart at the seams. I called the GEC, and the lady swore up and down that this never happens, but said I could bring them back to the store and exchange them.
At the store, the lady who helped me said, "whenever this happens to me, it's because I put them on too quickly." A couple things:
First, if this happens to the salesperson so often that she says, "whenever this happens" then it can't have been the first time the GEC heard of it. And second, high-end exercise clothing shouldn't be so delicate that the trim sales associate regularly rips them by putting them on.
But here's the kicker: when I called the GEC because I was mad about being lied to by them, the customer service person said that the sales associate shouldn't have said that.
Let's be clear: the sales associate wasn't wrong for telling me her honest experience with this product. The GEC was wrong for lying to me.
