Wunder Under Pant (Reversible)
I purchased these in the crop version. I will start by saying this is the first time in my many years of buying/loving Lulu WU's that I have left a review. I am writing this in hopes of affecting some change in quality control, as I am also a stockholder :) I bought my usual size 4 in these and after 3 times wearing them they are pilling on the inner thighs. I am now left with a pair of pants that are practically brand new and unwearable, a terrible combination! Please adjust your return policy Lulu, you should stand behind inferior products....my WU's from 4 years ago are still going strong!! What gives?

Reversible Wunder Unders - Not all that great!
I had purchased 3 different pair of reversible Wunder Unders (2 regular length and 1 crop) While they were great the first few wears, I soon found myself constantly pulling the tights up. They wouldn't stay in place! Almost like they were too big. On the flip side, Lululemon also claims there pants aren't sheer if you buy the correct size. The cropped pair of pants look sheer and the seems look unfinished. numerous people asked me if my pants were on inside out based on the seems.
Between 3 pair of tights I have purchased, I won't be returning to Lululemon for pants. Disappointing.

What happened to the "old" Lululemon. I was at the gym the other day, and not just my opinion - but all of the women who wore Lulu pants absolutely hate the changes you made to the style - fabric & fit. Bring back what you used to make...these new pants are awful - most styles! Do NOT recommend!

Covers everything and surprisingly flattering
Ordered these online on Thursday in the cadet blue/black combo in a 6 (usually a 6-8 in bottoms and a 4-6 in tops, I'm 170cm and 79kg) and they arrived the day after. Wore them out to the shops this morning and then training (HIIT and some bodyweight work) at the park afterwards for just over an hour, sweating my bum off. They look great on - I love the blue colour and how they are tight but not "hideous show every flaw plus what you had for breakfast" tight - and I don't get any show-through of my undies. I can't see any show-through the opposite colour through the pants either. They are warm, thicker than the other WUs I own and they don't move when training. I bought them for bumming around/running errands as well as training (which I do 6 days per week, and also go to bootcamp 3x mornings) and I can see they will do both well. In short, these are exactly what I wanted.

Former lulu addict
I have been a die hard Lululemon addict for the past 5-6 years. I used to believe there was nothing better for active wear and I wore it religiously to my yoga, barre classes, and outdoor activities. I recently purchased 3 new pairs of the wunder under am greatly disappointed. The fabric does not feel the same as the leggings I bought last year or several years ago. The fit is also not the same. I found myself pulling up the pants the entire time I wore them the first time in barre class (which was very annoying). I hate that my perfect pants cannot be found anymore. (the same goes for the tanks unfortunately...)

Very sad - Returned
I bought these seemingly beautiful pair of wunder unders only about 3 weeks ago and wore them about 4 times and the inner thighs already started pilling...I had to return them but very reluctantly since I had the rare, beautiful color combo of bordeaux/black. Unfortunately, I just couldn't keep $92 pants that were pilling from barely any wear time. I also wanted to exchange them for another pair of wunder unders but didn't because why would I buy them if they're probably going to pill, too? I love lulu but sadly, not this product

wearing out already
I thought long and hard about this purchase from Lulu. I got a great pair of wonder under crops a few months ago and I saved up to purchase a full length pair. My crops have held up wonderfully and have hardly worn (maybe a little inside the legs) this most recent pair are very different. While I love the reversible concept of these, I have had them only a week and have worn them once to yoga and once to the gym and already on the maroon/red side the seams are starting to come undone on the entire left leg inside seam.
I am extremely sad because I had them hemmed through the company and have waited and invested a lot in a single pair of pants to have them start to wear out already after only two weeks of use.
I did not want to complain because I had already gone to trouble having them hemmed at the store, however it is just so disappointing and this will affect my influence on purchasing other items in the future from Lulu.

see through and scratchy
i have over 20 pairs of luon bottoms, and these are by far the worst. i tried them on when i got home and could see everything on my butt (and i am 5"4, 105 lbs), which is surprising since they are "double sided". the material was also much scratchier than the regular luon. overall, i continue to be completely dissatisfied with lulu's quality. everything seems to be made of cheaper material and constructed much, much more poorly. after being a loyal customer for nearly 10 years, I am so upset with how downhill the company has gone in terms of product quality...

One absolutely MUST size up in these, lest it threw EVERY tiny bump, dimple and imperfection into glaring relief. The problem with sizing up, though, is that it's very lose around the waist. I guess it'll be perfect on those in between sizes. I sized up to a 10 from my usual 8, and while I love the deep red color and the fabric, I'm not sure if I'll be keeping these. It's VERY thick, and what with summer fast approaching, I'm not sure I'll get much use out of these.

Awful Fit, Sheer, Shows Everything
I bought these a few days ago in my regular size 6 in the red/black combo and was SO excited for a pair of reversible winder unders to add to my collection. When I first put them on, they were noticeably not as stretchy or comfortable as my other Lulu pants - a quite scratchy fabric with an overall sheen to it that appeared "back lit" when wearing the red side (because the fabric is sheer, the black shows thru). Since I loved the red color I figured I would keep them and hope they wore in a bit with use. Today I wore them to teach spinning and barre class and they were utterly awful. Not only do they fit awkwardly and have no give but they show EVERYTHING - things on your body you didn't even know you had, in fact - in all lighting too, not just the unforgiving studio lights. I took them back to my closest Lulu store and was told they couldn't possibly be sheer, they were thicker than normal Lulu pants because of the reversible aspect, and these pants were super popular so they couldn't understand what I was saying. I also explained I had other Lulu Wunder Under pants in different colors and they were fabulous and the fabric on the ones in question was different and terrible. Anyway, I hate posting negative reviews because I teach fitness classes for a living and practically live in all things Lulu, but these pants are awful and extremely disappointing for $100.
