High Times Crop
the best lulu product I've ever purchased
I live my life in lulu pants. as a full time professional photographer, I need to be able to move and breathe and be comfortable while being on the ground or on top of a chair without having to worry about pulling up jeggings or being constructed in jeans. I've been a faithful purchaser of the wunder under's for years now, but am finding their material too thick/warm at times.
after purchasing the "high times" crops (and I'm 5"0 - they're the PERFECT pants length for me, which is what I intended) after one day of wear I was ready to turn around and purchase at least another three pairs. the waistband fits perfect and doesn't cut me off like the wunder under's can do, they're snug and smoothing and not at all see-through. MUCH more breathable.
but of course... two days after I've received these pants, they're already out of stock. the lack of available "staple" items (such as black leggings) is a huge disappointment.

Dark Cherry Sheer :(
I loved the fit and feel and colour of these pants.....only problem was that the bum was completely sheer. I couldn't even bend in the slightest let alone do a downward dog! I had to return them sadly. Now I'm afraid to order them in a different colour. Returning things is quite the process because I live in a rural area.

Solid colour was a little sheer for me :(
I got my coco pique High Times a few weeks ago and LOOOOVE them. So much. So I was excited to order the Dark Cherry ones that came out online this week. Unfortunately I tried them on today when they came and they didn't pass my tests for coverage in the bum. They would be fine for just walking around but I'd like to be able to do more then that in pants that are made for yoga and priced accordingly!

I was so excited to get these tights in burgundy as a christmas gift, however there are really awkward lines in the tights that make a v-shape (they are not creases, they are actually a difference in colour) both on the fold down band, as well as on the upper thigh area. I was so happy when I got them because they fit so well, however for the price I was very unimpressed to have lines that are clearly not meant to be there. I am super disappointed because they do not have the burgundy in store or online anymore so I can't even exchange them for a pair that is not defective.

Short lived Excitement
I have always been hesitant on purchasing clothing from the lululemon store (rather than the outlet) because it is expensive for my budget. However, after seeing how great these tights looked on my sister, I decided to try them on. I immediately fell in love with the look and the fit, so I decided to drop the $88+ tax and treat myself to an early Christmast present. Unfortunately, my love was short-lived because these tights stretched out within HOURS of wearing them! I had to keep pulling them back up the whole day. Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed with this purchase.

Perfect until... they pilled!
I was super excited about purchasing my first pair of leggings from Lululemon, I had heard very mixed reviews for the Wunder Unders and was always on the fence about committing, until the High Times crop. I initially wanted to purchase them a few months back but they had sold out rather fast on the Canadian website. This time around, however, Lulu had me at the Bordeaux colour. Upon arrival of my online order, I tried them on and LOVED the fit (comfortable and so flattering). I wore them for one day, which included a 40 min bike ride, a 45 min session at the gym and just casually around town. That night, I noticed some PILLING! So I guess my $80 crops lasted me a whole entire 12 hours, not even 1 wash! I am such in disbelief and so disappointed with the quality, I really thought they'd be my GO-TO pair of leggings for anything, was even planning on getting them in every possible colour.

like the fit but they are see through!
I went into my local store today to try these on with a plan to purchase because I like the high waist pants for yoga. really liked the longer length and found them supportive and comfortable. I was so disappointed that the black were see through, I could clearly see the white tag in a slight bend. I would have tried the roll down wunder unders to compare but my store didn't have them in luon, only luxtreme.

Fit well, length is not a proper crop though.
I love the fit and color of these pants, but a "crop" they are not. I am 5'2" and they come down to my ankles and even bunch a little bit! I'm thinking of taking them into my local store to get them hemmed into a proper crop.
Other than that, I love them. If you're a shorty like me and actually want a crop, these aren't for you.

i will never buy wunder unders again
the high times crops are by far the best snug fitting pants ive ever purchased. i have bought these now in 3 colors. i find with the wunder unders i am constantly hiking them up. with the high time crops they sit well above your hip bones and are extremely comfortable. i am 5'9, 130 lbs and i buy 4s in all my pants. i would recommend these to anyone who seems to have that problem of hiking up the wunder unders every 20 minutes!!
