Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luxtreme
Not what I hoped for
I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing. I loved the soft feel in the fitting room but as soon as I started moving in barre, the pants were rolling down (maybe they are too tight? the girl at the store said they were the right size). It was definitely distracting to keep hiking them up which did not happen at all when I tried my friend's Inspire crops in two sizes smaller. Those were great and did not move at all. Not sure if its the material, too big or too small, but my first attempt to pick my own Lulus was sadly not a success.

DISASTER for YOGA or RUN
Disappointments ! Disaster for Yoga & Run both because it is NOT HIGH enough at the waist line. I have been a LULU lover for a long long time now. Run Inspire II + WonderUnder are my favourite for all my yoga & run activities. Love both lines with Luxtreme & Luon fabric so I bought Wonder Under crop full on luxtreme but I am very DISAPPOINTED -- fitting is not inline with so it fails totally the standard of LULU. It feels like some one in the cutting department forgot to add waist band ? ? -- This is NOT at all comfortable. Waist rolls down half way to your bum so constantly you would be lifting it after/during each yoga posture -- That to me is some one some where in the production line was a gooooof up. I paid good money but I am very upset that my money went at waste. I love Luxtreme fabric that was the only thought I went for this line but not happy with the cut. Please do something....I request may be an exchange with higher waist line to hold my body while I move on each yoga posture.

1st time buyer, bot impressed.
I finally decided to try some lulu's after having a friend RAVE about them! These pants are coming undone and have fly aways on almost al of their seems. AND during barre class, I realized how see through they are while i was doing a floor exercise. I even have a size up to prevent that.
I wanted so bad to like lululemon, but I can spend 1/2 the price on crops that done come undone at the seams. I wear them about 1-2x/week as they are in my workout pant rotation and have only had them for 4 months.

Love Luxtreme, but NOT Full-On Luxtreme
I only wear lulu Run crops (Inspire, Run for Your Life, and Marathon) to the gym because I like the fit and the Luxtreme material. I like Luxtreme because it's light, breathable, functional, and it doesn't pill.
I wanted a pair of Luxtreme crops with a minimal amount of pockets, specifically no back zipper pocket, because I don't need many pockets at the gym and the back zipper pocket is annoying when doing ab exercises on your back. So, I thought I'd order these and give them a try.
I like the fit of the Wunder Under Crops, but I found the Full-On Luxtreme made these crops tighter than all my other size 4 crops. However, the main reason I returned these crops was that I didn't like the Full-On Luxtreme fabric. I found it wasn't as soft as Luxtreme and I didn't like how thick it was. Summer or winter, when I'm dripping with sweat in the gym, I like a lighter, softer fabric.
I really like the idea of these crops. They have everything I was looking for except the fabric. I would definitely buy a pair if they were in regular Luxtreme. I just don't like the Full-On Luxtreme.
PS I prefer the shorter length of these compared to the Wunder Under Crop II because I'm short.

not what they used to be
I recently purchased another pair of wonder under crops. Sadly, after only a months time they are all pilled. I never wash them with jeans or towels and I always hang to dry. I have 3 other pairs of wonder unders that I have had for years and never had any problems. The quality just doesn't seem to be in my new pair!

disappointing to say the least
After hearing such great things about lululemon i finally decided to give their pants a shot. When i tried them on I fell in love...the fit was better than any workout pants I've ever had. Without even questioning my decision, I left the dressing room and went straight to the cash register to buy not one, but two pairs. Today was my first workout wearing them and I couldn't have had a worse experience. While working out my legs, i realized that they were see through and you could see the color of my underwear through the pant. Since i was already at the gym, i decided to stick it out and finish my workout. when i was almost finished, i also noticed that you could (obviously) see all the areas that i had perspired. needless to say, my trip to the gym was an embarrassing one...and i will be going back to the store to see if i can return them. I had higher expectations in the area of moisture control and the fabric itself.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER
I became a HUGE lululemon fan since last November with my first pair of pants being the wunder unders. So it's no surprise that I would opt for this being my 3rd pair of wunder under pants from lulu and I purchased it back in April. Almost 5 months in with these pants and they start unraveling! Not only do they unravel but the fabric is so thin, it created holes around the butt area. These were a perfect fit when I bought them and i've never had an instant where these felt too tight or small. Plus I put them on a hand wash cycle in the washing machine and hang dry versus using a drying machine. So I was EXTREMELY disappointed that this was the case. My first two pairs of wunder unders are still perfectly fine and i've consistently worn them to work out almost every week. For some reason, this one just never held up quite as well. I'll definitely have to think twice about ever buying pants at full price again because these were not cheap purchases and to have it not hold up for even half a year is crazy. Sure Nike doesn't feel as good as Lulu pants but they last for years! This has definitely changed my thoughts on lululemon and the wunder unders.

not up to lulu standards
I am not one to write a review, but after purchasing these pants 3 months ago I felt compelled to give my 2 cents.
I am consistently a size 6 at lulu and I always make sure to ask someone if the item fits me properly before making a purchase, But these pants always seem to be slipping down on me, and after wearing them for even a few minutes they seem to give me a slight muffin top. The real issue though is that the stitching is coming undone everywhere on these pants! The legs, the waistband, even my hips. I have never had an item from lulu fail me as much as these pants have.
Disappointed, especially since they're not cheap.

I LOVE these crops!! I went in looking for a pair to wear everywhere and everyday that weren't going to make me look short (I'm 5'2"), and the girl around the pants suggested these ones. I have worn them exactly what I had planned on wearing them for, plus hot yoga, and I fully plan on buying another pair! Again, love love love them!! Thank you Lululemon! <3

Super sad and dissapointed
So I recently moved away from vancouver & didn't have a chance to get a new pair. I've had my last pair for 5ish years and I lived in them. So I figured it was time for an upgrade so I saved my money for when I was coming down to visit. It was the top of my todo list so the first thing I did was go to park royal and try on some crops and some of the long legging type pants. Trying them on was fine but I noticed the fabric wasn't as thick as my old pair but I heard the fabric had been changed or something so I bought two pairs a crop and the long wunder unders.. I went to the bathroom and changed into my crops as soon as i left the store.. Later that day my friend had to cut a thread that was hanging down my butt which was embarrassing. So I'm back home and have had more of a chance to wear them and i've noticed little threads hanging out at the seams and a lot of pilling in the thigh area (I don't use a dryer for my clothes because I find hanging them to dry makes them last longer, so it couldn't be from that) & I haven't been very active and I've worn them maybe 5 times and it's a real let down that this is happening because I was so excited to get these and have a new pair :( they also fall down and i have to pull them up all the time.
