Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luxtreme
nice crops, bad experience
I bought these pants earlier this year (about 6 months ago) and loved them at first. They were comfortable for whatever activity I was engaging in, be it running, yoga, etc., and seemed durable.
A few months ago, however, I noticed that the inner waistband pocket ripped (without a known cause or accident), causing my keys to float around inside the pants while I'm working out - not fun! Keep in mind, this happened within the first few months of owning them, but of course, I don't have a receipt anymore. It should also be noted that I don't even own a dryer, so I can't be at fault for "compromising the integrity of the fabric", as the staff at Lulu like to remind you during your purchase.
All in all, I wish I hadn't spent as much money on them as I did, seeing as I don't believe I subjected the pants to any harsh conditions or severe wear and tear, other than wearing them in your typical workout setting, and they have already suffered some damage.

Stretches over time
When I bought these leggings in a size four, they fit snugly around the waist and butt. I am saddened, however, that after a couple wears and washes the leggings are too big. They no longer fit comfortably and I am forced to constantly pull them up over and over again. It is loose and baggy even though I followed washing instructions. I have seen other reviews on this problem so maybe try buying one size down? I am dissatisfied to say the least.

Nice customer service... declining quality.
I have always loved Lululemon's wunder under crops. When I saw the purple (maroon) colored luxtreme crops I decided to order them online. I wore them a few times, but felt that they were rolling over and I saw sort of "runs" in the pants. I walked into a Lululemon store and the sales lady was unbelievably helpful - she suggested I try on one size up as luxtreme was tighter than the normal wunder unders. She was right! And she let me exchange the smaller luxtreme crops even after I wore them twice. I was very pleased with the service.
BUT. Now I have worn the new crops and still see similar issues (no rolling down), but "runs" in the pants after literally only two wears. The runs are not through the fabric, but definitely noticeable when sitting down. I don't know if it's from pulling up the leggings, but I've never seen this in a Lululemon product before. And while they overall fit better, they do fall down and I have to pull them up. I do not have this issue with my previous luon wunder unders (that are from a few years ago). Overall, I find that I avoid wearing these pants as I fear they are "too delicate" and will run! That should not be the case! I've worn Lululemon pants for YEARS without any problem... I feel the quality of Lululemon items is definitely declining - as I've never had to worry about items being "too delicate" or running. Despite the company's willingness to always please customers, which is appreciated, it doesn't make up for poorer quality clothing.

I bought these already owning a pair of full length ones. First I ordered a size 10 and they seemed tighter than the pair I already owned so I returned them an ordered a size 12 which I regret doing because I have to full them up every few minutes. The other issue I have with them is that I bought them about a month and a half ago and have only worn them approximately 5 times and the seam on the inner leg is coming undone. This has never happened to any of my other lulus and has me very disappointed.

first pair of lulus i have ever gotten and they are super comfortable but my mom accidentally washed and dried them with other clothes once and there was a lot of piling on it. Its really expensive but really comfortable but be really careful when washing them. Also, its probably just my size but i'm 5'1'"and 96 lbs and i got a size 4 so i could wear them longer and the sign on the crop is almost at my knee not really in the middle of my calf.

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.
