Wunder Under Pant *Full-On Luon
Inside out symbol
First, I must say I am a fan of wunder unders but I recently purchased the electric coral pair and realized the symbol is on the inside of the pant instead of the outside. When wearing the pants it looks like I have something stuck inside my pants on my calf. I assume this was a mistake? Besides this pair, I love my other pairs.

I've own leggings from multiple brands, and I can honestly say these leggings are my favourite overall.
I'm very active and constantly moving all throughout the day. These leggings have served me so well, whether it was out for a jog or to a yoga class. They are thick and durable and so so comfortable.
I would recommend opting for the larger size. For example, I'm somewhere between a 2 and a 4, and the 4 fits me great! Unless you like to wear your leggings skin tight, I think it's safer to go up a size, especially if you're worried about them being see through. The size 4 hugs my legs perfectly.
I love how they're reversible, so you can either choose to have the lulu logo above your bum or on the back of your leg!
A main complaint I read about these leggings was that they pilled. I've had mine for a couple months now, and they still look as good as new. The main thing, is that you have to take good care of them when you're throwing them in the wash. As the cashier told me when I bought them, it's better to put them in a load of clothes made of the same material (other lulu clothes, or any dry-wick material, delicates, NOT cotton), or better yet, even hand wash them. Also, as I've learned from ruining another pair of my leggings, If you happen to be carrying a gym bag or something that will rub against them constantly when you walk, THEY WILL GET RUINED. That's how they pill badly.
So just make sure you take good care of these leggings in the wash, keep them away from friction and I promise you will love them as much as I do!

great, versatile leggings
I've had these leggings for about two years now and I LOVE them. I bought them when I was pregnant, to wear as a comfy/cute option but have worn then for everything else since. From walks, runs, barre classes, weight work outs, airplane travel, etc, they are awesome. Mine have not pilled much, only between the thighs. I've learned to wash my Lulu stuff in a separate load, which I will admit, was a pain at first, but it's totally worth it as these pants (and other Lulu gear I've bought since) still look and feel much like they did when I first got them. I would go up a size for any Lulu gear as the fit and coverage is better that way.
Lulu- if you're reading this, I would love to see these in a full on luxtreme, roll down, solid black! I have the crops but we need the full length :)

I love the look of the WU leggings and they're a huge fad at my school. However, they pill after being rubbed together between my thighs. You would think that for spending almost $100 that they would last a long time. Also, I have two yellow lab dogs and I use a lint roller often cause of their fur. But a lint roller does not work on these leggings, I have to use 5+ pieces of the roller and there is still a ton of hair left.

Leggings convert now!
I've never been a fan of leggings, so I have never even tried WU's on. I figured they'd be hot, make me claustrophobic.. even looking at them made me squeamish.
I got my pair in the mail today and put them on... I am a convert. It was 85 degrees today, and I felt fine wearing them. I don't even feel like I have them on! (I suppose I should look down every now and then when I'm in public in case it turns into a nightmare where I'm not wearing any pants...) They feel really good.
I did a kettle bell workout in them with lots of burpees, didn't have to mess with them, didn't get hot. I did a short barre workout afterwards, didn't have to tug on them at all, didn't get hot. I wore them with a cross back tank, and was really loving how they looked together!
OK OK... I guess I will have to look at more Wunder Unders. I have a feeling I will be wearing these out!

Meh, not impressed
Part of me didn't want to, but I should have listened to all the previous reviewers about how prone to pilling these pants are. I wore these on a long walk, and I had a small smooth leather cross body purse that hit me around my hips. When I came home, I noticed that the part of the wunder unders that came in contact with the purse was starting to pill. Personally, I think it's ridiculous how badly these pants hold up considering their price. I've had way less expensive black tights that have never pilled. Save your money and just buy black tights from another less expensive brand.

meh, go a size up.
I love lulu's leggins, but these I am not a fan of. I always am a size 6 in pants and leggings, but for some reason this certain type are waaay to tight I can not even squeeze into these ones and I feel like if I do they will rip. I recommend getting a size bigger than what you usually wear.

I love the fabric of these. They feel very well made except they make this loud crinkling noise when I'm folding them? (The noise did not happen when I first bought them..) Also there's slight pillage on the rear and waistband after 3 months of light usage. I've never worked out in them, I just wear them to and from school, shopping, everyday stuff. The black color seems to have faded to a dark charcoal as well. I hand wash these every time with my other lulu stuff and hang to dry. It seems as if the lifespan for these pants are 6 months~ so I will hope for the best that they last longer! For reference I ordered a size 4, I am 5'2 and 103 lbs

Was really excited to buy these leggings, but I'm bummed because they started pilling even before I washed them, and after washing them once they got even more pilled and it sucks. Good fit and all, but I don't like how they're holding up

Gave it a month before writing this review
My apologies before you read this. This post is a rant.
Before I bought a pair wunder under on WMTM IN STORES!, I did read the reviews that were provided. Contrary to what I read, about the excessive peeling, I decided to just go for the plunge because of how amazing the prices were. Asked the staff if there were anyone saying anything about the peeling (not telling her i read prior reviews) she said no they live up to everything that they said they did without peeling. That she hasn't heard anyone every complaining about LuLu pants ever not being of superior quality... meh, okay. so i bought the pants and got them altered.
Got pants back with crooked threading, didn't complain or return, just took it home and wore it perusal. I hand washed it with cold water and took extra good care of it, thinking that this would make the difference. I wore it several times before each wash as well, to prevent any color fading, and have only hand washed it twice before I noticed the entire inside area of my thigh IS starting to peel.
I guess I should have seen it coming, reviews did state about the excessive peeling.
Pretty bummed because I hate having to bring products back to LL and complaining about the lack of product quality. Staff try to be nice about the entire process, but generally have an undertone of insinuation that I am taking care and managing my products wrong. I've had them even look at me and say, "well maybe you just shouldn't use this product, your figure is more suitable for tougher, thicker, more durable material." not amused by that remark, getting less tolerable of being in stores... when they caught their tone, they changed it to "oh, because you know, we don't want you to buy something you don't like" [sarcastic preppy laugh] "we don't want you to return stuff..." wait, what?
uhm, first. i DID like LULU products. but if staffs represent their company that way, and talk to customers that way on a multitude of occasions.... then no thanks. these series of events have contributed to me not wanting to go back in and exchange, like corporate headquarters ask for us to do, the product or shop in person/online at LuLu at all.
Both my sister and I are huge LuLu shoppers. I have their bags, luggage, and almost every undergarment and yoga gear out there! Sweaters and jackets too.
Thanks, but no thanks. I've been a long time shopper of LuLu but feel as if most of my complaints lately are "hey, why isn't the quality of products the same as it was five years ago? six years ago?"
If the quality lived up to what its suppose to be, i'd tolerate the snooty staff. but if both are progressively not living up to one another, yeah..... no thanks.
will try to add picture of the peeling at a later date.
