Wunder Under Crop *Reversible
DON'T size up!
For reference: I am 5'5", normally an 8 in bottoms and a 6 or 8 in tops and a bra size of 34D and weigh about 130lbs
These were the first WUs I bought and I bought them about a year ago and because of the reversible ones that I bought it took me until this past weekend to buy another pair (the second pair I bought was NOT reversible)
I read several of the reviews online since I live in a city that does not have a Lulu store I was going to buy them online and a lot of the reviews said to go up a size and that didn't seem very odd to me because I do have another pair of Lulu pants that I bought in a 10 because they fit better in 10 than in 8. So I ordered the 10 reversible WU and since I didn't know how they SHOULD fit I kept them and I do love them don't get me wrong but they're a total bummer to work out in because they fall down and that is NOT for lack of having the hips/butt to hold them up...trust me.
So my advice, get your normal size...the fact that its reversible does not make it so tight that its difficult to bear like some claim. (in my opinion at least)
Plus with the 2 fabrics on top of each other the shape retention will just help us all out a little bit more and that's ALWAYS good

Good crop, but could be more snug
This is my first WU and it's reversible, black and aqua. The aqua side isn't as slimming as black but that's to be expected. I expected this to feel v snug based on fit description as tight. but it's not as tight as i expected. the In the Flow crop feels more snug, maybe bec of nature of fabric. I'm keeping this as the cut is nice, fabric soft, and it's not see through. i got my usual size 4

Crop Search Complete... for the most part
Having just joined the crossfit world this summer, I was in search of the perfect crop for colder weather. I had read a bunch of reviews online about how the wunder under crops purchased in 2013 were see through. I experienced this myself when I tried a regular pair on in the store... no thank you.
However, 2 weeks later I tried the reversible pink/black wunder under crop and viola! No unwanted peep show for my fellow box goers and they feel amazing! After doing an obnoxious amount of squats and stretches in the store, I found that the crops didn't bunch or fall down. Winning!
The only reason I'm giving these crops 4 out of 5 stars is because when I wear the crops on the hot pink side, you see some cellulite. I'm guessing this is due to the lighter color because its not visible on the black side.

These Wunder Unders Are WUNDERFUL!
I ordered these pants 2 weeks ago and after a lost package, super helpful phone calls from customer service AND an "I'm sorry" gift card to make up for all the hassle, I finally received them today. I love them! The fit feels more like the new Full On Luon WU crops (thicker, more compressive) and so so comfy. The inkwell side is like a very dark navy and doesn't show ANY of the aqua color from the other side of the pants. I have zero sheerness issues, although the aqua side isn't as 'forgiving' as the darker color. I wear CRB's that would cover my tush anyway, so I'm not worried. If anything, seeing a little thigh imperfection would motivate me to hit the gym a little more! For reference, I wear a size 6 and am 5'8" & 127lbs. These fit exactly as all my other 6's do.

So I got these pants and I really like both colors. I feel like my crack is showing when I do wall balls or squats. I can feel the pants dropping below a dangerous line.
I feel self conscious when I wear them because of this issue. But they do slim me out etc. its just the crack issue. I have other crops from lulu and dont have this problem at all. Just these. Not sure why. I did try them on at the store but next time I will be sure to do a full squat.

Love, love, love
Got these a week ago and I am in love with them! I love both colors and they are super slimming. I am 5'8'' and 145lbs and ordered a size six. The fit is amazing, and they don't bunch up at the knee which I love. The only downfall is that I can see how if someone had cellulite it would show through the pants, they are very form fitting. Get them!

No camel toe!! Weeeee
My detailed review (with imagines) is ^ there! I have the blue/mint ones and i love them! They make me look slimmer, they are super stretchy, and they don't give me a camel toe. All is good!

I don't see a problem
I stalked the Lulu website for several months trying to get a pair of the grey WU crops and was finally able to get the black/black reversible wee grey ones.
I was scared for them to arrive with all the horror stories. They came last week, and I breathed a sigh of relief. I don't see a thing wrong with them. No one has complained about seeing my behind through the pants. I bought my normal lulu size - 6. If it helps anyone my hips are 38" and I typically wear 4 in jeans.
They are just as comfy as my all black WU's from a year ago, and love that they are reversible & I can go between two neutrals (not a fan of the bright orange/black.)
Would love the full luons in a WU crop. And more inventory on the webpage, as my closest store is 2 1/2 hours away.

A Few Small Things
I love how these crops fit, they're so comfortable. Plus it's like I have two more pairs of crops now for the price of one! I love that! My one issue I had with these (only at first) was the strings. A few of the strings came loose and I had to cut them, but no seems have come undone. Also, I ordered the orange and grey ones, and you can see the orange underneath the grey. It doesn't look like a have orange underwear on, because you can see the orange on the legs too, so that isn't a huge deal. One more thing, the orange stitching on the grey side holds me back from wearing these with colors that don't go with orange. Could lululemon possibly make another version without the neon stitching on the reversed side? Other than those little things, these are great crops and I absolutely recommend them!

I love that I get to see both colors at once!!
Are you kidding me? New luon not sheer? Nope.... I went up TWO sizes and with the orange/grey combo, the fabric was so sheer that a lovely two toned effect was achieved and I could see the underlying fabric... as well as my panties.
So, moral of the story: as a curvy size 4, I had to wear an 8 to minimize this problem (and yes, amazingly they were still sheer). As a consequence, the waist was far too large and the tights were bagging. Not worth the price and not worth the heartache. Please, please, please fix these quality issues and bring back the products we loved (and could trust).
