Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luxtreme
I've had three pairs of Wunder Under crops. I had just purchased a new pair last week as my old ones got snagged by a hook and have a small hole in the butt. The material of my new pants is so slippery, I literally have to pull them up every five minutes after walking, let alone sweating it out in yoga. To make things worse, the threads and seams begun to come loose after wearing them around the house for 10 minutes. I'd rather wear my old linty pair with a hole in the butt than these new ones! I miss the old Luon, please bring it back...

I was so excited for these awesome prints! But sadly, this fabric just is not up to par with my other Lulus. I teach yoga 5 days a week. This fabric is slippery, is much tighter than the Luon, rides WAY DOWN, if you are bending or twisting in any way what so ever. I found myself constantly hiking them up throughout class. I would love to see these cool patterns in the traditional Luon, Luxe Luon, and Full on Luon! Other than around the house, I won't be wearing these pants again. :(

Loved this new fabric
Wore my new black Mohave today in Pilates and everyone loved them. The fabric is so comfy and flattering - I always take a size 4 - I'm 5'2 and 99 lbs and these fit perfectly. They did not ride up and felt much more substantial than Lulu competitors. Well worth the money girls!!!

Was so excited to get these in the mail, I ordered the camo, finally something fun and away from my normal black. I wore them to the gym and proceeded to sweat my "a" off like I normally do. I briefly look down while in the squat machine and noticed it seemed as though I had peed my pants. Then stood up and took a quick looksie in the mirror, low and behold there was my butt crack sweat, there in all it's glory for the whole flipping gym to see. I'm sorry, I LOVE to sweat, but I surely don't want others starting at my crotch wondering if I have issues visiting the restroom. These DO NOT wick sweat like the other lulu pants or like the description says. The fabric sucks the pants suck and I am sooo disappointed. 82.00 on a pair of pants I will not wear again, and cannot return. Don't buy unless you plan on wearing them to the grocery store or to lounge in around the house.

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.
