Wunder Under Pant *Full-On Luxtreme
terrible fit, poorly designed
I?ve been a Lululemon die-hard fan for over a decade now and I?ve always admired the quality of the products and my in-store experiences. However, these pants have really put that to the test.
I had a pair of the Wunder Unders that I used to wear for running. They were perfect, fit great, felt great and did the job they were supposed to. Naturally, when it was time for me to buy a new pair, I wanted to get the same ones since I was so satisfied with my previous ones.
At the store I tried on a size 6. It gave me a little muffin top, which I was unsure about because I have always worn a size 6 and have never had that. The person that helped me in the fitting rooms said it was normal to have the muffin top and that it goes away after a 2-3 wears (the material stretches out).
Bad advice because this is not the case! I have worn them about 8-9 times; they have not stretched out and are the worst running leggings imaginable. I am constantly pulling them up while I walk (forget about going for a run in them!). I am usually a size small and have always worn a size 6 at Lululemon and I've never experienced this problem with any of my other Lulus.
In the product description it says that the wide, smooth waistband is designed to eliminate muffin top but it seems to me that these particular pants have created a muffin top rather than eliminated it. The pants definitely don?t move with you or stay in great shape (because they are constantly rolling down) and definitely don?t feel like a second skin. They are impossible to wear and I?m so heartbroken about the money I blew on this pair of Lulus.
I always seem to overlook the price of the clothes that I buy at Lululemon (regardless of the fact that I am a student with a budget) because I know that I?m paying for quality. I know that most of the clothes that I buy from Lululemon last me years with proper care, but for the first time, I feel like I?ve wasted over $100 on these pants. Now, I?ve lost trust and confidence in the quality of Lululemon.

Silky, Adorable... but rolls
I bought these online, as I do most of my lulu items. I'm a curvier girl, I carry my weight in my love handles and bum so a medium-high rise is deal for my pants to stay on. Despite being a medium rise these babies are low and roll down when I move a muscle. But they are so cute I want to torture myself and keep them. AND when I bend over they are not see through (although they may just roll down over my bum). I am 5'5, I normally wear a size 8 in Lulu's bottoms but bought a 10 because I just 'had a feeling' and I am glad I did, an 8 surely would be bad news on these mama hips.

Review after review!
I think it has to say a lot about a company that has their customers concerned about making a return of any kind. The fact that the item is faulty or they haven't had a chance to wear it in the two week return time shouldn't make a person HOPE that it can be returned or exchanged. I read review after review and the customer is afraid that a faulty item isn't going to be accepted for a return? Lululemon you sound like bullies, I think as a customer I shouldn't feel afraid to return an item for whatever reason. Companies like Athleta and Nordstroms always get my money first, I feel like I am the customer and they appreciate me and my business. If you stand by your product then stand up and be accountable. No returns on sale items? There are to many companies out there with superior product and where I feel valued to spend my money.

Mediocre quality for $100
Comfortable & looked like decent quality when I first purchased them. I've had these leggings for 2 years but have only worn them during winter. I have never put them in the dryer, yet the stitching on the seams are coming apart. Poor quality, I expect better for $100.

I own several styles/colors of this particular tight. I am reviewing the "usche telemark almost pear inkwell". I found this a few weeks ago in my local lulu. I am usually an online shopper. I was surprised at the cute new print in the store. It is more on the brown/yellow color scheme (different than the usual black/blue/grey). The print is fun in a slender-style way, different than complete vertical lines. I appreciate that it is slimming is a similar way that is a less obvious. LOVE!

Really awful fit. Had a wonderful gal helping me shop, I told her what I was looking for and she recommended the Run Inspire Crop (which I love) and these. They were fine when I tried them on in store, but they are terrible for running, walking, yoga, spin, to and from, you name it. Always pulling at them in the waist, legs and crotch. They even fit weird around the ankles. I own well over 20 pairs of Lulu bottoms for all different activities and these are the worst pair I've purchased. I cannot wear them for anything. I have friends who have the same complaints about them.

Very cute pants
Love these pants and the cute print. Very versatile, can run long distances or just run errands. Comfortable and flattering. Would definitely recommend to others!

Beautiful and Fast!
I love the unique print (I chose the blue roses pattern) combined with anti-chaff fabric - ran 10 miles in those - no problem! 100% cellulite coverage too. Love them.

Love them but you have to like the fit!
The fit sits low and snug on the hips... But I love them! I have 3 pairs of these. I can squat in them and not worry about the material sheering on me. Keep the patterns coming. I wear a size 4, I am 129lbs and 5'5''.

Not good fit, thin fabric
Unfortunately I have to agreed with the other negative reviews. I bought these to replace a pair of lulu tights that I had for year and expected the same quality and fit. The size six (what I usually wear) gave me a muffin top so I went up two sizes upon staff recommendation and I still have a muffin top but the legs of the tights fall down! The fabric is also very thin- not the winter running tights I was looking for. I'm upset because these pants are quite expensive and as a student I had been saving for some time to treat myself. I so wanted them to work but I'm disappointed every time I put them on. It hurts because they cost a lot for my budget!
