Wunder Under Pant *Reversible
I bought these in Paris Perfection earlier today. After reading mixed reviews I decided to see them in person first. I am 5'1, 110 and bought a size 2. They fit excellent (very tight for yoga) and the rise is great as well. They are not sheer or see through at all. The pink color is sooo pretty and I love that they can reverse to black as well. As other reviewers mentioned, you can see the pink stitching on the black side around the waist and down front and back, however it really is noticeable and to me, looks cute anyway.

Ok - but not for black leggings
You can definitely see the stitching of the other color on the black side. I wanted these to wear with tunics and loved the fact that I could reverse them and have a burgundy option. However, I don't like that I can see multiple colors on what is supposed to be a solid black tight. The fit is great, but they do look cheap with the messed up stitching.

I'm in the "new wonder unders don't compare to old wonder unders" camp and have been avoiding buying a new pair. But I'm in love with the deep zinfandel color so gave these a shot. I am 5'7" 145 pounds and usually wear a size 6 in Lulu. The size 6 I tried on in the store was ridiculously tight. My thighs looked like sausages trying to come out of the casing, the rear was totally sheer and showed my undies, and I had major CT. So I went home with a size 8 but after trying them on several times, I can see they're definitely too big. Even just standing in front of the mirror, I have to keep tugging them up. And there is absolutely no compression, so my thighs are all jiggly. (They are still a little sheer in the rear, but I can only see my panty design faintly so I could have lived with that.) Because I cannot imagine trying to get through a yoga class--or even walking!--in these without constantly having to pull them up, I'll be returning them. It's so odd that the two sizes fit so differently and there doesn't seem to be a middle ground that works for me. So sad...I don't know what I'll do when I have to replace my wonder unders from 3 and 4 years ago. Good thing the old Lulu quality is so good!

I bought a pair of the reversible wunder unders earlier this year at the suggestion of a friend. She had a pair that lasted for a couple years so I was happy to make the purchase, and it was my first lululemon purchase. I've owned them for about 8 months at this point and have one them maybe a total of four times working out, but they have mostly been made into lounging pants. And even lounging they're annoying.
I cannot keep these pants from falling down. The fabric feels great and it feels like a proper fit. . . but no matter what way I move the waist band and crotch just drops. I don't even mean that I'm running a marathon in these. If I bend over and up again the pants fall. If I run more than a tenth of a mile the pants fall.
I wish these worked but they just don't. I won't be purchasing again.

Not like the regular wonder unders
I received the reversible pair as a gift. I have them in the hot pink/navy. The fit is not the same as the regular wonder unders (non-reversible). It seems like the rise is not as high and the seam that runs across the bum is too low, so they end up sagging and falling down as I work out. When I've worn them to the gym, I have to be sure I'm wearing a long top - and I'm constantly pulling them up. This uncomfortable and disappointing. They are a sz. 4, and I've always been a 4 or 6 in pants at lululemon. They now sit in the back of my drawer and I wish I could wear them because I do love the hot pink color so much, but the sagging while working out defeats the purpose of the product. Wish I could exchange :(

These are awesome!
After being disappointed with the baroque/deep zinfandel WUs due to sheerness & yes I was in the proper size anything bigger would be too loose. I decided to give these a try since I love purple. I was very pleased. They are so comfortable and look awesome. Having two colours is a bonus as well. They feel thicker and there is no sheerness for me. I would definitely order another pair with a different reverse colour.. maybe a nice burgundy?! These are worth the money for sure great for working out and cute as tights with tall boots! :)

I ordered the pink/black combination and love the colour of these. they are bright and fun. The material is really thick and not see through at all. ( more thick than the regular wunder unders probably because of the double colours). I'm a super lulu fan and consistently have been buying from them for years. I'm always an exact size 4 for everything and I'm 5'10" and 125 lbs and this is the only pair that I've ever bought that were really tight. They almost felt like a small size 2. So maybe try them on in the store or size up for these ( although a few people have been saying theirs have been big)

I am happy with mine
I just received my deep purple/&black WU Pants. I am very happy with it. It is NOT see through on either side, it is also thicker than my regular WU Pants because of the double layer. Compare with it, my beautiful baroque Zinfandel WU Pant I just got a few days ago is much thinner and cheap feeling, I was thinking if I should return that one since I love the pattern so much, but after receive this one, I know what I should expect for $100 pants. I knew exactly what it's like when the color from other side came through this side, I tried a purple/light blue WU Crop during summer was like that, I could clearly see the purple from the very light blue side, but this one is not like that at all. I took one star off due to the inconsistency of the quality.

Best tights sold anywhere
I am beginning to believe that some of the reviews on here are from folks who are upset with the CEO's comments and are not legitimate reviews.
I've been purchasing Lulu since the early 2000s and I've always been pleased with the quality - I still have some Deep V tops, boogie shorts, and groove pants from 2003-2004. There was a brief period where the wunder unders were see through, but other than that, they are outstanding. I probably have 50 items in my closet right now! The old quality is definitely back, these pants feel very solid and the stitching is perfect.
These are not see through, in fact they are by far the least see through of any tights I've tried in the past decade, if you size them correctly. I don't care what the garment is, if you wear it against your body in a size not intended for you, it is going to stretch beyond its design and then it will be see through. You cannot blame the CEO for saying that some bodies won't work in some pants, because it is the truth. Its the truth whether we are talking about Lululemon, Nike, Adidias, Athleta, or any other manufacturer because physics are physics. If you design a pant for a certain size of butt, a person can't put a larger butt in there without having to size up or it will stretch too much and become somewhat sheer. It will happen with yoga pants, it will happen with tights, it will happen with pants, skirts, or even dresses.
I've been a 2 or 4 in Lulu for the past decade and I just picked up pairs of the purple (deep zinfandel) and pink wunder unders and they are fantastic. No see through, even with a squat and bend test - the black doesn't even show through. Of course they still shape wonderfully and they are still the most comfy tights you'll ever need.
I can wear these underneath my suits on cold days, even in a professional office, I can wear them to the gym, I can even wear them out by themselves because the quality is that good.
My only suggestion to lulu is to make more of the wunder unders reversible - it is always nice to have a second color.

I've returned a LOT of Lulu pants in the past year due to sheerness, but I will NOT be returning these! I ordered the Deep Zinfandel/Black and I absolutely love them. The DZ color is gorgeous and...here's the best part - they aren't sheer! Ok, ok. So you can see the white tag just a teeny tiny bit when I go into a deep squat, but you couldn't see my panties in the slightest. I even did the bend over test for my boyfriend and he approved them (and believe me, he might like seeing my butt but he wouldn't want me showing my butt in public!) I thought they fit just like regular ol' Wunder Unders as well.
