Light As Air Hipster
VERY UNHAPPY WITH MY PURCHASE! ... I have been shopping at LLL for years now. I have many LLL underwears in different styles and colors already, but wanted a new "power purple" one to match my new ignite shorts (pwr.purple/blk/z.grn), and so I ended up purchasing the Light As Air Hipster style in my usual size 6/8 (M). I tried them on at home today and found the quality to be very poor in comparison to the seamless styles from prior years. I can't recall the name of the older versions but they were similar material, except less shear and they had some sort of grip along the waistband. This new Light As Air Hipsters do not stay up at all and ride down after one slight movement. This is discouraging for me as I feel I need like 0% body fat in order to be able to wear this style, because they would only fit well on a model's body... This purchase was even more disappointing as LLL underwear is final sale, and I don't think I will ever wear them (maybe just to sleep in lol). I was really hoping to like the underwear but found my self very unsatisfied... For the record, I am 130lbs, 5'2, and size 6 in LLL.

I was excited to try these undies out - I am a huge Lulu fan but I was sooooo disappointed when I tried them on.
The material is really thin, thinner than those you can buy at Victoria's Secret or LaSenza, which is nice... but since I'm a bigger girl and I have some rolls, the underwear just rolls down my belly and doesn't stay up at my hips. The underwear just doesn't have any elastic waistband to hold it up like it would with regular underwear.
It's not an attractive description, I know... but I'm being honest about this product so that others can be wary before they buy.
These undies fit on the tighter side... I'm usually an L and I feel like I should have ordered an XL, at least. I wouldn't buy them again :(

So happy together
These hipsters are awesome. I haven't had any roll down problems. For reference, I'm 130lbs, 28" waist, & bought a Large, in every possible color. I can't say enough good things about them... I hand wash them & they try in an hour. So light and comfotable. Please don't stop making these, & please restock & add colors!

Love love these
I bought these because i was tired of sweaty cotton underwear. These are light, non chafing. HOWEVER, I am 5'2", 108 pounds. I bought size Medium. They fit perfectly, no gaping, rolling, or bulges. I am usually a 2 or 4 in lulu bottoms. To all the naysayers, you are wearing the wrong size. Size up, girls. Way up. And you will be very pleased. Lulu - you really need to change the sizing on these undies.

Best Panties Ever!!!!
I bought 1 pair of Light As Air Hipster and immediately fell in love. Absolutely NO panty lines at all with these and they are extremely comfy. They really are 'light as air'. I purchased a couple more pairs online and 1 of the 2 are frayed at the top. Needless to say, I'm a little disappointed as I have never had any problems with anything from Lululemon. Even though I received 1 bad pair, I will still purchase more. I'm hooked. Going forward, I will check with the associate at the store to see if I can inspect before purchasing.
I gave a 4 rating because of the 1 frayed pair I received, otherwise, I would have given a 5.

I got rolls?
I love the feel of the fit, and the colors are cute, cute, cute! I don't normally wear a hipster because of the seam lines. As long as I smooth these down under my pants, they're good. However, if they're sitting too high, I get a bulge-effect on the outer-thighs. It's not a sharp indention, and may only be noticed by me.

Light and Seamless, Just What I Wanted
I don't like wearing a thong to work out in but have been doing it for years because I also don't like panty lines but couldn't find any full bum undies that truly did not leaves lines in my workout pants and crops until these.
I bought one pair to start out with because I know that the reviews for them have been very mixed. I wore them running with my luxtreme crops and they were AMAZING! No chafing, no moving, no lines! They are also super soft and light weight. Next I tried them for Yoga and then Bootcamp and again they were perfect. I now have 3 pairs and I am sure that I will be buying more.
They did roll a little bit when I take my pants off but not at all when I am wearing them. Each time I wore them with luxtreme or luon pants and never with anything looser than that which may have helped to keep them in place but I bought them specifically to have no lines in pants made of these materials so I am very happy.
For reference I am 5'5" 124lbs and usually wear 4 or 6 in lulu bottoms and bought these in size small.

Ruck, roll and slide all over the place!
I wish I'd read these reviews before I bought my pair :( I always wear size 8 or 10 lululemon pants, and L lululemon underwear and have always loved the technikini and various other underwear I've bought from the store. Unfortunately, there was only one pair of technikini in store, but the assistant said I would love this pair. I don't, I hate them. They don't stay put in any direction and they roll and look terrible under pants. Of course, you can't take pants back, so I paid $18 for a miserable day in them.

It's kind of bizzare how some people love these because they don't roll down, and others hate them because they do. I'm not sure what body type the people who don't have roll down problems have, but I'm not one of them. As soon as I put them on the top rolled down, and it actually isn't uncomfortable but obviously noticeable. A waste of money.

Perfect for Travel
I first got these to try them on in Medium as I was a size 8 in lulu bottoms but was not impressed because I experienced some rolling down as some reviewers have mentioned. Didn't think too much of it and stopped wearing them for a while... Well, after about a month or so of my SeaWheeze training I realized that I had lost weight and had gone down to a size 6 in lulu bottoms (YAY!) and then tried these on again... Well, THEY ARE AWESOME! They fit just perfect with no rolling down. I've since purchased 5 more pairs in different colours and use them as my everyday underwear, not just for working out anymore. They are the perfect undergarment for travelling since they are so light weight and they dry in a heartbeat when hand washed and hung to dry in your hotel room.
To the reviewers who complained about the rolling down issue, I suggest that you size up. I found that they rolled down when I was a little bigger but now that I'm a size smaller they fit perfectly.
