Wunder Under Pant
I have 3 pairs of black wunder unders and a pair of maroon ones, but all of those pairs are at least a year old and I love them! The last two pairs I purchased, in dark grey and bright blue are both sheer, and the fabric is different in regards to the two pairs. The grey fabric is VERY thin, and is already splitting between the thighs even though I only got them a few months ago. They are also very sheer when I bend over, and I got them in a size 6, which is the size all my other wunder unders are. I decided to size up to an 8 with the bright blue ones in hopes that going up a size would reduce the sheerness. I was so wrong. Once I got home and started wearing them they were very see through, and since I went up a size, very loose and uncomfortable to wear. I will definitely NOT be buying any more colored leggings from LLL because of my experience with the last two pairs I bought. Hopefully I can find some cute grey ones elsewhere.

I absolutely love these pants! I wear them for everything - running, skiing, hiking, lounging - even rode my horse with them! I own two size fours of these, one in black and one in herringbone grey. As I am 5'11", I am very impressed that they were long enough! The grey ones are fuzzy and cozy, the black are classy looking but sometimes attract lots of dust, etc. Great for everything!

comfy but sheer
I had my first ever visit to a lululemon store this past weekend having driven to Toronto, and was excited to get my first pair of lululemon pants. I was initially surprised by the lack of selection- I wanted a pant that was slim, to the ankle, and black and thought that would be easy to find. Unfortunately the wunder-unders were the only ones close to fitting that criteria and they seemed to only be in bright colours! Thankfully I found a pair on the sale rack that were a dark grey and seemed to be almost exactly what I was looking for, if a little thin on the fabric side. Having bought them and put them on at home I found they are very sheer to the point of being able to see the white tag through them without bending over. Having read the reviews here now I see this is a common problem. Why is it impossible to find opaque, slim-fitting, black lululemon pants when every girl seems to own them? Did lululemon figure everyone already owned a pair and they didn't need to make any more? That being said I'm very happy with my other purchases of the day- I've only worn my jacket twice and already gotten lots of compliments on it.

I have two pairs of these (one regular, one reversible). I use them to run in as well as an alternative to regular leggings for comfy/lounging outfits (these 'wunder unders' look and fit much better than the conventional cotton/spandex leggings you get at other clothing stores).
I am 5'8, and 130lbs. I am lean all over, and my hips are on the wider side. These pants fit very well for both running and relaxing. They are comfy, and highlight the best parts of my legs (and mask any features I don't like so much!). Also, they way they fit in the hips can't be beat. They stay in place, without giving you a muffin top or falling down.
My BIGGEST issue with these pants is that they aren't great at keeping off lint. I do all I can to take good care of them (as per Lulus recommendations), but I can never manage to keep them looking pristine after more than a few washes - and if you run, you know it doesn't take long to get a few washes in! I understand that the lint thing is a tough thing to tackle, but given the cost, I would expect them to look great a little longer. It would be nice if they could cut the cost a few dollars, as they need to be purchased more often...
Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with these. I would recommend to a friend (looking to buy a black pair). I haven't, nor would I, buy these in any colour other than black, so I can't comment on the colourful 'Wunder Unders'.

I LOVE WunderUnders
I have always loved my wunder unders. I ordered another pair online, the pin striped inkwell pants. They came in the mail and I am so pleased with how they look. They really are gorgeous!! They look dressy but cute. They fit great. I love everything about them.

I have been shopping at lulu for a couple of years now, and i have always been happy with the quality of their products, but not anymore. These pants are completely see-through, although I bought them just after Christmas so they were not included in the recall.
These pants really are great, and would have received a 4-5 star rating, had they have been a higher quality material but it is to thin to wear out in public if you are not wearing a long shirt to cover your bum.
I have a pair of wunder under crops from about a year and a half ago, and they are still in better shape then these pants, which I have only worn maybe 5-6 times since i got them. i truly am disappointed that I cannot buy any bottoms from lulu anymore. I have already turned to other brands to find better quality yoga pants.

love these pants! i wear these as every day leggings and they are extremely comfortable. i haven't worn them to exercise because i am more of a shorts person but i wear them A LOT and i truly believe they would be great while working out as well. They breathe and fit amazing. if lululemon came out with different styles such as an astro pant top on these, i would be the first customer in line to buy them! they are a necessity in my wardrobe .

WHAT HAPPENED LULULEMON? SERIOUSLY?!
So I received these pants as a gift as was initially THRILLED. I loved the way they fit, the shape, everything. I have owned another pair or lulus for over 5 years now and have loved the quality, endurance, and design of them. They have never pilled, torn or frayed despite years of use.
HOWEVER. Things very soon went downhill for my new wunder unders.
I always wash my lulus very carefully, in their own hand wash load with delicate soap, never use regular detergent or softener, and always dry flat. I am super careful with them because I know washing with cotton or other fabric can cause pilling, and I don't want to wear them out since they're so freaking expensive.
But my new wunder unders, oh man.
A few wears in I noticed that the seams on the inner legs were fraying and coming undone, and that the fabric along the seam had even ripped in one area. I was able to temporarily fix this by sewing overs the seams with my machine, but since my machine can't recreate the stitch lulu lemon uses, it doesn't look half as good anymore, and won't hold up for long. I also noticed extreme pilling, even before I had ever washed the pants. Then I noticed a hole in the thigh. I could technically use a bit of thread to sew it closed just to hide my bare leg, but it'll look stupid and now the quality of the material has been compromised. It will unravel more and more and the hole will grow in size.
I'm so upset because I take great care of my clothes but this seems to be unavoidable. My new pants look like I've had them for ten years, while my 5 year old pants look brand new even though I've worn them at least 10x more often. The degrade in quality is unacceptable.
I would love to get another pair, but can't afford to shell out another 100 for a pair of pants that won't last. Lululemon won't take them back, either, because they're "damaged due to customer wear". So no guarantee that they'll last for 5 years of physical abuse anymore?
It's not like I rock climb in these pants. I do yoga.
They shouldn't look so horrible!

Could Wear Them ALL the Time
I have these in many different colors and will absolutely get more when I get the itch for some new colors. These pants always feel great on before, during and after my yoga practice and teaching. LOVE THEM! I can also wear these to dance class and still see my lines without having to wear tights.
I have gotten them in sizes 6 and 8 just because they didn't have the six and I loved the pattern and both have been just fine.

Amazing fit but not good quality
I purchased a few pairs and love how they fit however they have all started pilling by just wearing them. On one pair of mine what looks like pillys all over is actually the stitching coming out of the seams and I have never washed them and worn them only a few times, and its not in between the legs its on the front of my legs and even if it was I am quite slim and that should not be happening. I have yet to take them to a Lulu store because I dont have one near me and if they won't exchange them I will be livid because not only do I have to wash all my other clothes from Lulu by hand but I have never even washed these period. The quality of their product gets worse and worse and if they can't atleast start making better quality then they better honour ALL there product. Regardless of how people are washing them, their material should not be falling apart especially when you are dropping a lot of money on each item you purchase. I do love Lulu and stle and fit of their clothes but if I don't get honoured for these pants I will sadly need to reevaluate my loyalty to this company.
