Light As Air Hipster
Inconsistent sizing and poor quality
While preparing for a trip abroad I purchased one pair of the "Light as Air Hipster". I'm a size 10 so the sales associate suggested I purchased a M. It fit like a dream and I felt it lived up to the price. I immediately went back and purchased two more the exact same product (same color and size).
Long story short, save yourself the frustration and the money. The two additional pair I purchased were both too small. Since the policy on underwear allows for no returns, I was stuck with (after tax) almost $60 worth of underwear, of which I could only wear one pair. I threw the two pair that were too small away.
Since I had read some of the other reviews that the quality was inferior, I have been exceedingly careful to hand-launder them in cool water and dry flat. I estimate that I've worn them approximately a dozen times since I purchased them. Yesterday I wore them on a day trip to a football game when one of the seams came COMPLETELY UNGLUED while I was wearing them. This stranded me without underwear in a stadium full of about 90k people - awkward to say the least!
As I threw my $60 pair of underwear in the garbage can of a ladies bathroom in a football stadium, I found myself asking two questions:
1) Does the company stand behind the consistency of the fit?
2) What am I to do when my Lululemon products are of such poor quality that they fall apart WHILE I'M WEARING THEM?

Having a bigger bum has created a few difficulties for me in finding seamless undies with the right amount of coverage, but this is my new solution. These have provided the coverage and comfort that I need especially when I'm biking or doing any aggressive cardio in general. Will definitely be buying a few more for my collection!

My husband bought me two pairs of these underwear and although the fabric is wonderful (super light and very comfy), these underwear do not stay in place as the packaging claims and I was constantly picking out a wedgie throughout the day (how very attractive!).
Very disappointed with these underwear, especially given the cost.

I bought a pair of these in black in the store. They fit great, and I was looking forward to buying several more pairs. I washed them in cold water in a hand wash bag on the gentle cycle and let them line dry each time. Unfortunately, the third time I went to put them on, they came apart at the seams (or more correctly, where the seams would have been). The glue simply didn't hold. After paying $18 + tax, I was very disappointed that they didn't last longer than this.

Wear these under anything!!
Love, love these underwear! So light that you can wear them under anything without visible lines. A great pair of underwear to get in nude if wearing a white skirt or in black if wearing a darker short dress. Great for working out or dressing up!

I wear a 4 in all my Lulu pants and I find these are made excessively tiny. The large is baggy and the medium tight around the thighs. And beware of sizing issues between colors some are made tighter as the colors change. Pretty frustrating considering you can't return these.

Thin as a whisper. Comfortable as skin of my own.
The perfect pair of hipsters.
Thank you, Lulu!

I like the fabric, nice and light, but the fit is a problem. My measurements put me right in between a 4 & a 6, so I always have to try my lulu thing on first to decide which direction to go. With these I went with the 6/8 first. They were pretty baggy so I went back to the store and got the 2/4. Those are super tight over the hips, very uncomfortable. So I guess my choice is either constantly adjusting them because they are loose and move around or feeling awkward because they are so tight. Kind of a shame to spend almost $40 to find this out.

can't live without
These are by far the best undies ever. They fit well, they don't bunch, and they are super comfy. I do not understand why previous reviews are so terrible. I can imagine if you do not buy the right size that they would possibly bunch and/or tear at the seams (depending on if they are too big or too small) but I think they're fabulous. A must have and well worth the price.

Love these undies, but...
I love the Light as Air Hipsters - they are so comfy and I love that you can't see them at all under your crops or tights. I have 3 pair, and wanted to buy more, but my black ones are literally falling apart - I have worn them twice and washed as directed, but they have a big hole in the back - the glue seems to be separating the band from the rest of the underwear? I can't wear them anymore :( It's frustrating because they are, of course, final sale, so there isn't much I can do, but at $18/pair, I'm disappointed!
