Wunder Under Crop *Reversible
Incredibly Dissapointed Wunderunder Fan
I've owned many pairs of wunder unders over the last 4 years and until now, these were favorite leggings. I wear them for every workout from cross training to yoga, and even as loungewear. I was extremely excited when I purchased the reversible crops wee stripe black heathered black/black. I wore them a few times with the striped side as the outside color, and I loved them- they fit consistent with my previous pairs of wunderundres.
This week I wore them reversed, with the black on the outside, and I was horrified to find that the material was so poor in quality. They were so sheer (I really thought Lulu had moved beyond this see-through issue), and looked like a pair of tights/stockings rather than Lulon, and could see the grey stripped pattern on the other side through the black. I wore them to a pilates reformer class, and by the end, the knees on these had pulled threads. They also didn?t look black, they looked like a sheer dark grey- and were not smooth and flattering on my legs. They were baggy in some places and a drop of water was incredibly obvious and looked stained (which I?ve never had happen on back wunderunders). I was acutally worried that these would rip during the class.
I am incredibly unhappy with the quality of these crops. I have purchased countless pairs of wunderunders over the years (most without trying them on in store) because I was sure of their quality, durability and sizing. This pair is definitely is making me rethink buying anything else from Lulu- which is sad considering I?ve been shopping exclusively there for athletic apparel for 4+ years (and own probably 30-50 pieces). It's a bummer to see that they still are struggling with quality issues...

My New Favorite!
I bought the cadet blue/black in size 6. In general, I wear size 4 in LLL shorts, and size 6 in their crops.
It's fabulous! My legs look slimmer and longer in them, and the fabric feels good, and was not sheer at all. The blue is neutral, and very pretty and matches all my 105S (teal, baroque blue, etc) and swiftly techs.
Very happy with my purchase.

I wanted to love these crops. Being a big fan of the reversible options, the Baroque Blue/Black pair looked beautiful when i picked them up in the store. However, in my first wear during yoga, I noticed the blue seams coming undone and splitting open! I was surprised, because seams is never an issue i have had with bottoms. After class, I took a closer look and when flipped them inside out, the black seams were also loose, hanging, coming undone! WHY??? They were brand new, hardly made it through one gentle yoga class. For reference, I am 107 pounds and 5'9'' an purchased the size 4. There should be NO REASON for the SEAMS to unravel like this. Disappointed, frustrated and worst of all, received NO HELP to exchange or return the pair when i addressed my issues with the store manager. Here's another lost lulu pair I will never wear again, what a waste.

I absolutely was so excited to get these pants in the cadet blue color. When I finally bought them they fit so well to my body. After not even one full day use of wearing these pants I noticed that the seems look like they're coming apart on the cadet blue side and not the black side. That really disappoints me because I was so in love with the color and now I'm afraid to wear them again since the seams probably will come apart even more.

I've owned a few pairs of wunder unders over the last 2 years and they are my favourite leggings. I was extremely excited when I ordered a pair of the reversible crops in Paris perfection pink/black! I had some issues with the delivery company and didn't revive them until 3 days after the expected date (which was already a weeks wait) but was still jumping with joy when I FINALLY got them. You can only image my disappointment when I opened the package and saw the right knee had a lovely dark stain on it. Never even got to put them on. No store near where I live has them in stock so if I want another pair, I'm going to have to return them and and wait the weeks it will take for a new pair to come. I don't want to settle for a boring black pair- it's just completely unacceptable of Lululemon to have shipped a product that was stained. I am beyond unhappy with the result. Definitely is making me rethink buying anything else from Lulu- which is sad considering 90% of my wardrobe is by them.

2 in 1!
i have the full length, not crops, and sized up to a 4 (i usually wear a 2, but they felt a little restrictive). just wore them pink side out to teach & then take hot power yoga classes and felt snug & secure, with no fussing or adjustments necessary - even the waist (which i am always having to hike up on other pants), stayed put! and with all the sweating i did for 3 straight hours, i was not soggy at all.

I have just become a Lululemon Fan recently due to my husband. He bought my first two pairs for Christmas which was a black and white pair and a colorful pinkish/purple long pair in a size 8. I absolutley loved them. So I decided to go with these revesable ones. I had to get a size bigger than the first two. I thought why not 2 in one? Right?? Well I was wrong....I have worn these 3 times and I am very dissapointed. These are quite see thru and not only that, the hems and seams are coming apart quite fast. I am very careful washing the workout gear. Cold water with detergent and No softner. I hang dry them as well. Not sure if I got a defective pair, but I don't want to discourage anyone from getting them. Your opinion might be different. I just wanted to share mine with you all and since I have worn them already I knew I couldn't return them.. :( I hope to buy another pair soon and not be disapointed. Best Regards Sadden Fan...

Lulus for $10?
Yep, $10 is the difference between having one pair of Wunder Unders for $72 or 2 for $82. I chose the latter.
I got the gray and black and have worn them twice. So far, I think they are great! They are comfortable and they wick away sweat during yoga class, despite them being thicker than typical Wunder Unders. I think the thickness also "smoothes" my rump a bit. I don't think anyone will have to worry about these being sheer. They seem to be consistent with other Lulu sizing for me. I typically wear 8s in Lulu yoga pants and 6s in Lulu running crops. The 8s are a just bit big in the waist, but the 6s were too tight.
Overall, I recommend them!

A must have!
These are awesome crops. They are high enough so I am not concerned that anything is hanging out when bending over in yoga, or squatting in the gym!

the crops have been sized up
Ordered my usual size 2 in wee stripe black -- they are just too big (wide in the hips, but short in rise), hence there is a camel toe (usually I have no problems with triangle gusset). Looks like now Lulu is trying to force people to size up, and p.s. -- when wearing the black side, they are still a bit sheer on the butt in downward facing dog.
