Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luxtreme
Dries like a dream!
Wow-- lululemon isn't kidding about the wicking properties of the Full-On Luxtreme fabric!! The day after I brought them home, I wore them to practice sweaty hot yoga ... within minutes after the class, the wunder unders were mostly dry. I was slated to teach a class 30 minutes after practicing. By the time I started teaching class, the pants were bone dry and comfortable, like I had just put them on. When I practice or teach 2 hot classes in a row, I usually of course change clothes. This time all I had to do was change my top and I was good to go. No sign of show-through, the pants are opaque for me, and the fabric is nice and soft against the skin. The fit is superb and they look GREAT on! I normally wear a size 6 in lulu pants, but since the Luxtreme fits more snugly I ended up with an 8, which fit like a glove.

Great to work out in!
These are my first Lulu crops. The fabric is so nice, it moves with me when I exercise without "creeping up". The pattern is very pretty too.
I'm 5' tall, and so these tend to be more ankle pants than crops. I know they can be hemmed, but for the price I hate to spend more having them hemmed. Lulu needs to make pants for us petite exercise nuts.

Don't like luxtreme
Amazing pants - I love wunder unders in the long and short version - but can't stand the luxtreme fabric. Its much thinner and SHOWS EVERYTHING - no wonder they have to sell special wunder undies. I tried these on while wearing a thong and the lines showed through the fabric, very unflattering. I definitely prefer the regular luon fabric!

Perfect every day crops
I got these crops with rowing in mind - a tight but comfortable fit ensures that the pants will not get caught in the slide, but the stretchy fabric allows for full movement. They washed up well, and where I usually get pilling due to thighs rubbing, I haven't had issues. I love these for running and cardio classes as well.

I was leery about buying these because of the mixed reviews on the fabric, but have not been disappointed. The fabric is silky and does not attract lint and dog hair like the luon WUs. It's got some nice compression to it and does not show any lumps and bumps and is not sheer at all :) I did only give them four stars, due to the fact that until I start to sweat, they do slip a bit. Once I am sweating, they stay put. I think they fit TTS, I am 5'5", 139lbs and the 8 fits just like my other 8s from Lulu.

Not the Lulu I used to know
I am sad to say this will be the last pair of Lulu pants I will be buying. The fabric and fit are completely different than they used to be. The fabric, which once felt luxurious and expensive, now feels cheap and thin. The fit, somehow tighter and saggier at the same time. I used to love my Wunder Unders. The pairs I purchased even two years ago are still in regular rotation. I teach yoga and am in yoga clothes all the time. While I love the colors and design of Lulu clothes, I can't justify the price for ill-fitting, apt to sag bottoms.

Just not for me...
This just wasn't the fabric for me. However, if you like that type of fabric, I'm sure you would love these. They seemed well made and I didn't see any sheerness issue like some reviewer's say. They also were true to size.

If you're doing anything other than walking or sitting, these are sheer. If your body is going to be in motion, don't wear these. I bought these for barre class, but now they are only worn if I'm at home.

LOVE! Luxtreme all the way!
While shopping at the store, a Lululemon sales girl was giving me the pitch for these crops and the Full luxtreme fabric as I was looking for a crop I could do hot yoga in. When I tried them on, they were light yet opaque (I made sure to bend over in the dressing room to make sure they weren't see through and they aren't) and felt like second skin while holding everything in. There is even a compartment for a key/yoga card/etc. I liked that they are opaque, felt comfortable and made me feel confident and fabulous. I purchased a black pair and was very excited to wear them to my next hot yoga class. On my way to yoga class, I felt as if my pants were falling down exposing my underwear and pulling them up. I worried I'd be giving the class a show or constantly pulling at my pants but to my surprise, once I started to sweat, the pants stayed in place! Like suction cups, the pant did not budge, ride up, etc. Great yoga pant also gave me some grip for certain asanas and recommended for hot yoga or activities that you are sure to sweat in.
For reference, I'm 5'1, 34-24-33 and bought a size 4, pant hits a few inches below my knee. No camel toe or see through-ness!

I love Luxtreme!
I have lulu pants and crops in just about every fabric they all come in. From now on, I will ONLY buy Luxtreme! Stretchy but compressive, no lint (that's no fun), kinda shiny and sleek. Good for everything! Running, spinning, yoga. Looking cool running around town. Best fabric ever! Woohoo!
