Wunder Under Crop II *Full-On Luxtreme
Disappointed with loose fit
I live about 3 hours from a LuLu store...I tried these on and I was happy with the fit. Flattering and snug, but not too tight, so I purchased them. Like other reviews, after I wore them they stretched out in strange areas and I found myself hiking them up through my workouts (primarily crossfit). I washed them in cold water, air dried, and tried again....same thing. They stay tight in the calves and thighs, but get loose in the rear and waist, really strange and l have chosen not to continue wearing them to this point. I am 5'2" and 120 lbs, and purchased my usual size.
Being 3 hours from a store, a return/exchange isn't feasible. Really bummed about this investment.

I have a few pair of black workout pants, and I wanted to try something different. So I decided to get this pair although lots of negative reviews made me a bit worried. Long story short, however, I love everything these pants - the patters, the fit, and color. The reason why it's not five starts but four is that I don't think this is a medium rise but low rise. Overall, I love wearing these and would definitely buy another pair in different colors!

I love these Crops
I really love these crops. The fit and the pattern are great for me. I am 5.4, 116 pounds and I bought them in a 4 as originally I had the 6 but the crotch was a bit baggy. I am normally a 4 or a 6 depending on the pants/shorts/shirt etc.
I would definitely give these a try. If they don't work for you you can always sell them!

R&D Team review #1
I really like the print on these leggings as I can wear them to run errands with a cute sweatshirt and shoes. They also dry quickly after heated yoga. However, they stretched out quickly. I find myself pulling up the thigh area often. After several washes the durability seems solid, but I wish they were a bit tighter.

I enjoyed these while they lasted
I bought these crops a few weeks ago. After wearing them twice I washed them, delicate cycle/hang dry, only to find that a thread in the gusset has come undone (see picture). Now there's no chance I'm going to wear them in fear that the rest of the stitching in this area will also let go. What a waste of money!

First, I have not had any issues with needing to pull them up. Maybe if worn low on the hips this may be an issue, but the waist band stays on my waist.
I was worried the pattern would be unflattering, but that is not at all the case I actually think it is slimming.
This is may first pair of a full-on luxtreme wonder under, and they are very different. They are much lighter than the loun, but at the same time I feel like maybe a little less breathable. I think maybe I am just not a custom to the wonder unders in this fabric, but I do really like them, they are just different.

Exactly what I wanted.
I do find that Luon wunder unders will pill around the bum, waistband, and between the legs, but the Luxtreme fabric is fantastic! I love the smooth feeling, and have experienced zero pilling after many washes. I use them for yoga and do not experience any pilling, slipping, or sheerness. I found the fabric to stretch much less than the Luon fabric as well! I normally buy a size 2 to accommodate for stretching, but for these I got a size 4 and they still fit perfectly! The only advice I have in regards to these pants is to wear a tight shirt, because they are so slippery that looser shirts will slip off during downward dog.

These were on my lulu xmas wish list and I have to say I'm disappointed in the material...everything sticks to it, and they are already pilling between the legs. I've only had them a month and already they look worn more than ones I've had for years! I've purchased nicer quality leggings for much less and never had this problem. Very disappointed.

Left a big hole in my heart!
These pants were on of my first pairs of lulus. I purchased them online in November, and I have not worn them anywhere except in my car to the gym, and back in my car to go home. Today I found a hole right on my right butt cheek and I literally wanted to cry! I can't believe I spent so much money only for them to tear after a couple of round on the treadmill so disappointed. I literally have no idea what could have caused them to tear even when I have bend so careful.

Disappointed for the first time
These were on sale at my local store and I loved them as soon as I spied them. I generally wear a 6 but very occasionally size up to an 8 in the tighter fits; with these I needed an 8 which seemed to fit perfectly in the dressing room. I wore them immediately for a few hours around the house but within the first 15 minutes I had to hike them up and continued to do so the rest of the night, I can't imagine how awful they'd be for any kind of work-out! They fit everywhere else but the waist and crotch, a problem I've never had with my dozen or so LL pants. The next time I went to put them on (which was awhile later because I don't love the ill-fit), I noticed that the seams were already unraveling in several places!
I'm rather frustrated with these crops as I've come to expect a certain level of quality from LL through personal experience, and despite this being the first disappointment, this is a major one that makes the pants pretty much unwearable and scary to wash as well. I love so many other attributes of the pants, like the print and material, they look fantastic on and feel like a soft, sleek second skin that I'd be comfortable wearing all day and during any work-out, but I worry the seams will come undone if I wear them again.
