Studio Boxer Short
I am not a sausage
So, I'm a 51 yr old who loves my lululemon work out shorts. I can lift weights, stretch, jog...pretty my anything, and they are perfect. The waist isn't too tight, the built in compression shorts are perfect
Frankly, I'm hooked.
So I decided to buy a pair of underwear and see how they fit. I'm 6' tall, weigh 200 lbs and wear 36 waist pants. I'm a bit softer than I used to be but am certainly not fat. And I've got a muscular butt and legs.
My wife bought me a pair of XL undershorts, and they bind me terribly in the thigh. They are a touch tighter than they should be in the waist as well.
Does anyone really want their love handles accentuated?
Perhaps I should have gone up to an XXL to get a better fit
I honestly don't see why anyone would put such tight leg openings in underwear. I think this is a design flaw. The compression undergarment in my shorts feels much much better.

i usually take XXL in all my lulu pants, but i thought i'd buy my underwear in an XL but to my surprise they were super huge ! and way to thin. half the time they wouldn't stay up over my butt they were so lose ! i will never buy underwear again from lulu ! i love all of there stuff besides these underwear.

Cant find myself to love them or hate them. To start of, the store in Pasadena is primarily women. I'm no introvert but they seem to be very open and knowledgeable about guy underpants ..kinda weird for a very personal topic in the first sentence of a conversation =S
The pouch needs a better design. Great for women im sure but not exactly ideal for male functions.
The girls explained why the line exist but still find it weird .
I use weird a lot dont i? hmm
I'd return them, but that would be weird to go through again.

Great for running
As an avid marathoner, I was recently told by my girlfriend that I was showing a bit too much junk in the front. As someone that always goes commando under running gear, this was going to be a big change! So I went on the hunt for some sleek underwear that wouldn't show under running tights.
As other people have mentioned, the underwear policy is fairly absurd, in the sense that you can't try it on or take it back. At $30+ per pair, I felt silly taking that gamble.
That being said, I love these briefs. I'm used to tighter fitting clothing, especially for running, so they didn't bother me. I wouldn't wear them under jeans for a night out (I did once to try it out, waaaay too tight), and unlike some other reviewers I didn't find the leg holes too tight. And believe me, I'm a former hockey player that has some large legs.
Let me tell you, they are not kidding about the anti-stink fabric. I eventually gave up on my test after wearing them for 5 runs without ANY smell. I've never experienced anything like that with my usual run gear.
I guess the only drawback is that the leg portion rides up during exercise, but anybody with large legs has to deal with that for basically any type of clothing, so I don't fault this pair.
All in all, it's worth the money to use under your normal athletic gear during exercise, and feels like a second skin.

Who designed these things??? The crotch pushes down on your junk and pulls at the sides. It's like they were designed for a Ken doll. Also, the leg openings are SUPER tight. Like cut off circulation tight. And I have pretty skinny legs.
In all honesty, they are probably one of the most uncomfortable things I've ever put on my body.
Good thing you can't try them on and they won't take them back.

Great undies. The fabric is fantastic and they just look great. They are expensive for sure but the launder well and you will not be disappointed. I wear these for yoga and as my everyday undies. I would suggest them if you can afford the cost.

I generally wear boxer-briefs/compresion shorts, or just briefs. I bought these for use at the gym (running, strength-training) as well as day-to day.
My waist is 32 inches and my thighs are 25 inches - I bought a medium.
The material on these is very nice and comfortable and the waist fits fine. Unfortunately the cut doesn't fit me very well. The leg openings are about an inch too small - they indent into my thigh - and as a result the leg parts ride up right into my crotch as my leg is slightly narrower there. In addition, there's not much crotch space to begin with and what is there isn't very supportive for the pucks and is too tight for the stick.

Already own 5 pairs.
I'll be clear : they are expensive (for boxers) but they are the most comfortable thing you can put on your intimacy, on the market. Perfect fit for me (M) and the texture is extremely soft. Also washes super well.
I wear those at the gym as well as with workwear or jeans when I go out.
It's by far my favourite lululemon item. I respect those so much that I feel terribly guilty everytime I f*rt. (Yeah, I said it).
Already own a few pairs, and I intend to add more (love the new colors).

Came Apart After 3 months
My Husband loved these underwear in the beginning. These were given to him as a gift in August. The waistband has come apart from the fabric. I did not expect this on a $30+ underwear. We have cheaper underwear that have lasted longer than this.

the best I had
these briefs are awsome and I cant find anything wrong with them.
the only complain I have is that they dont stock sizes and xxl seems to be sold out most of the time.
Sad to always have to look.
I been looking for many weeks to see it restocked but no luck.
Great for the gym or just to wear around.
