I was reluctant to try on these pants because I find the wonder unders are not very flattering on me. I brought them to the change room anyways and the woman working the fits said that she loved them and they are a snug fit. She was right on.
They were definitely not as easy to get on, especially around my heel but they really sucked in in the right places and fit and looked amazing. I didn't find them too tight anywhere either. I'm 5'4 and I found them to be a good length.
I wore them the next day on a trip out to the mountains with wool socks and boots and then dressed them up at night with flats.
They are one of my favorite purchases I've made since my first lulu purchase over 10 years ago.
I highly recommend them and wish all pants fit like this!

Not too flashy at all
I love these tights. I was not looking for anything too flashy as I am not the type.
I bought these not really knowing what to think but I love them! They reminded me of other workout gear I have had in the past except they're great for around town too. Other shiny workout gear can look like workout gear only.
These do double duty! You can wear them with a hoodie or with something dressier too. I wore them with my Halloween costume and they looked super cute!
I would love to see more colors and of course a high waist for those inversions.

Shine Tights are surprisingly awesome!
I tried these on in store just out of curiosity. I didn't expect to like them at all. However, once I had them on, I found them extremely flattering! The material is VERY compressive and sucks everything in. The sheen is sassy yet not cheap looking. Very trendy, in my opinion. I found these thick and completely opaque. I tried a size up also since the material felt really compressive and more difficult to put on than Wunder Unders. I ended up buying my true size 4. The size 6 had a bit of extra material along my hip flexors and behind the knees (which is typical when I size up in Wunder Unders as well). I would say if you are consistently your true size, then go with that. If you sometimes waver between sizes in pants, then go with your larger size. My dimensions are 5'6", 130 lbs, hips 35 inches, waist 26 inches.

Love these tights!!
I just purchased these tights and love them! They fit true to size but I had to hem them because they run long on my 5"2 frame.
I also bought the wrap sweater to go with it and it looks amazing with boots or just cute converse shoes! You really can wear these for anything and it is so comfortable!!
You will not buy another thing like this from Lulu again so get it now before it's gone!

Ok, But Sending Back
I've never a review before but I waited and waited for one on these pants and so I thought someone else might wanna know what I thought about them.
On pulling these on I think they run a little small. I ordered my TTS, size 4, which I wear in almost all other bottoms. For reference I'm 5'4, 120 lbs, slim and a small butt. I found the waistband to be tight at the top. They were tight and I would say compressive, which I liked, so I wouldn't want to size up for a looser fit in the waist. I also found them to have a lower rise than I expected. I think the specs said medium rise, but these were pretty low.
I like the shine, which wasn't too severe, but I'm not sure how much wear I'll get. Also, I'm an 80's chick so I'm having slight flashbacks of my leaf-print spandex pants....
I tested these out and I don't think they're sheer. They're pretty thick.
I have spent embarrassing amts of $ at lulu, so I have some pretty great stuff and these didn't live up. Sending back.
