Wunder Under Crop *Silver
I was worried about all the negative talk over the new material, but really wanted to try the wunder unders. I got the wunder under crop in beaming blue and it is AMAZING, not see-through. Fits like a second skin.

Love the looks of it but could be more functional
I do love my wunderunder crops, although I noticed no difference in having the "silverscent" so will save my money on my next pair and I kind of had the feeling they were falling down throughout my practice. Like they were hanging down in the crotch area. Despite that, I do love them and I'd still buy another pair as they are so comfy!

They ruined a good thing
I love my old wunder unders. Its such a shame. They ruined a good thing. These new WU are too sheer. The fabric is not as thick or compressive or forgiving as the old ones were. The size is also off. I always wear a 4. The 6 was too big, the 4 was too small. I don't get it. If the quality is going to go down, then do us a favour and drop the price. Then I could possibly justify buying these. But no thanks. I don't want to give the people behind me a show when I'm doing my squats or dead lifts. Lululemon quality has dropped significantly. What a shame.

This yoga pants are a perfect fit. They are comfortable and move with your body as you do yoga.

like the silverescent inkwell for size
So I got these in the silverescent inkwell colour. I'm usually between a 4 and 6 in regular wunderunders. I have a petite, athletic figure (size 32 hips). A 6 is a little looser than I'd like, but 4 is a little tighter than I'd like (ie. with a lighter coloured top it looks like I have some rolls where I don't). As such, these fit PERFECTLY in a 6. They're snug in a good way, and don't fall down when I'm practicing. Also, FYI I'm about 5'2" and the 6 hits me on the calf right where it hits the model in the picture (good to know for short folk ;). I don't have problems with camel toe with the triangular gusset, but the gusset doesn't cover the girl entirely (if you know what I mean) so I could see how this could potentially be a problem on regular wunderunders (not silverescent). This material is also thicker so I'm not so sure if these will be my favourite to practice in come summer time.
My stuff doesn't usually smell even after a sweaty practice. However, I've worn these a couple times without washing in between and haven't had any issues whatsoever.

I got these one size up from what I normally wear because the fit runs small. The first time I wore them they were fine but the second time they were a little loose and I kept having to pull them up. I wonder if I should've gotten the smaller size since they stretch out? I have another pair of LLL pants that I bought a long time ago (dont know what kind they are) and I have the same issue with them.
Bottom line, despite how comfy and cute they are I'm reluctant to wear them :(

bye bye compression
So, I've read a ton of reviews on the lulu crops, I have a couple pairs of lulu leggings/pants, but never had any wunders. Since I was concerned about all the negative reviews on the new more sheer and less compressive fit of the current wunders, I decided to spend a long time at the lulu store last weekend. Honestly, I have to really agree with the negative reviews out there; even the regular unders in black are very sheer. There's no compression and most the styles just really aren't flattering. Anyhow, when the sales girl (who was lovely) recommended I try the inkewell silverescent, I immediately fell in love. I thought I'd finally found the perfect one. I sized up to 6 (i normally wear 4's in lulu pants) because these run a bit snug. Once I got home and went to class I was extremely pleased; I felt like they had good support (like second skin) and were very flattering. And then.... I washed them. Ugh. $82 dollars people!!! Yes, I know how to wash this stuff, it's almost obnoxious the degree to which I try to "protect" this clothing. But as they were lying there drying I could see and feel that the fabric was stretched out. So today, I put them back on and noticed that the seam was unraveling on the waistband stitching. I was able to knot it up, to prevent more unraveling (for now, at least).
On the upside, they are really really comfy, but they've lost about 80% of the initial compression, which was what I really loved about them. The other positive, is that the material is thicker than the regular wunders, so they're not as sheer. I would have given these 5 stars, just out of the dressing room, but now after 1 wear and 1 wash, I think for the money, they should really be holding up a bit better. I only wish I would have found out about lulu several years ago, when they had the previous material that everyone raves about. Oh well....

Love the light flare
After reading the reviews I ordered a size larger, an 8. I am tts size 6 in wunder under crops and all other bottoms. When I received them and wore them to a Bikram class and a Hot Flow class these crops stayed in place and were super comfy.

These run smaller than the regular WU. I am usually a 4, the 4 in these were too tight and the 6 were way too loose. The material is almost slick feeling, nothing like the regular WU. I will be sending these back. For reference- 5'2,115lbs
