Worst Lulu thong to date
I hate this thong. The fabric feels like plastic and they cut into my skin on long runs. I've never had chaffing problems with lulu athletic thongs, but this product proved me wrong... They don't stay put and feel super wet (gross). I really wish I hadn't paid full price for these because I cannot see myself wearing them. I went back and bought the Mula Bandhawear Thong and am so much happier. I only wish there was a low-rise version.

Do not buy these
This is the only product I have ever purchased from Lululemon that was absolutely hands down terrible. These undies completely rolled up and twisted and went places they should not go. I wore them for one boot camp class, and spent the whole time digging them out and still 2 days later I'm in pain because they twisted up and were absolutely useless terrible workout undies. I'd rather go commando or even wear hanky panky undies over ever putting these on my body again.

Ehh....Only Worth the Final Sale Price
I bought a pair of these on final sale and when you can snatch a pair up they are definitely worth the final sale price, but I would never purchase these full price.
I love the mula to wear as active and just every day undies, but these are a different story.
When I wear these light as air panties under leggings as everyday undies they are amazing, but i'm afraid that because of the delicate nature of these that they will start rolling and bunching with any type of running or hiking activity.
The bottom line is I will pay $16-18 for good panties I can use as both active and everyday, but I will not pay that for a pair of panties I am literally only ever going to wear as legging panties when I go to class or run errands.
On another note they run small for me, as do the mula's. I wear a 6-8 in lulu bottoms and always have to buy a 10/12 L in lulu panties for them to fit right.

I was looking for the same panties I had bought from lulu about two years ago. They are awesome and my go-to pair for hot yoga. When I went in the store to purchase more I noticed that these were different. Rather than buying 5 pairs, like I originally planned, the sales girl,suggested I try one first to see what I thought. Well, thankfully I did listen to her because I would've been out $80 as these are not returnable.
The problem is the side roll up and do not stay flat at all. My previous pair that I love do not have this issue. I was hoping the sides would stay flat at my sides and have the "no panty line" effect.
Sorry, lululemon, but once again why try to change something when it was perfect in the beginning?

I Love the light as air effect these give but even in the smallest size these are still to big. I wear an extra small in most underwear I buy. I figure as Lulu only made sizes down to a small that it may just fit perfect.
Turns out they dont and are still too big.
need smaller size.

not so good
I really like the material of the thong but it just doesn't have enough of an exterior lining, that is why it creeps inside where it's not suppose , AKA camel toe!!!
I wore them the first time with leggings, doing yoga and they were bugging me big time.
I will weir them for everyday because I paid a ridiculous amount for them, they are tolerable for everyday weir...
Maybe a lining around the thong would give them more structure and they would stay put more!
I am 5'7 and weigh 139 lds post-baby, I bought a medium but maybe a small would have been better!!

I bought these because a friend of mine said they were the best underwear ever... I beg to differ. I bought them in a 6 because the girl in the store told me they run TTS and because I am a 6 in pants I would be a 6 in these... WRONG. They cut into my hips in a not flattering way (is there a flattering way?), rolled at the top, and gave me camel toe in the 90 seconds that I had them on. I've since lost 13 pounds and tried them again thinking that maybe I should have bought a larger size, still no dice. I should just cut my losses and throw them out.

Just size up - it's perfect!
After reading so many bad reviews and being very content with Bandhawear, I did not plan on buying this.
Bought one over the weekend as I really liked the "pick diamond zig", and wow - it is not only beautiful but also incredibly comfortable!
I am between size 4 and 6. Some of my underwear are S, and some and M. I bought this one in an M. They fit nicely but an S would have created some problems other reviews have mentioned (roll up, etc.). Also, I personally think this underwear work the best when worn beneath tighter outfits (skinny jeans, yoga pants etc.) due to the material used.
Overall, a nice product. Just remember to size up.

These work for me
These are a very thin material, and if you are trying to eliminate VPL these are for you. Under garments are extremely personal, and if you don't like thin material you won't like these. I find that they stay in place nicely, they aren't tight (I wear size 6 bottoms 5'6", 125) and they are comfortable through a sweaty cardio workout. I will be buying more. Please don't stop making these - ever!

Into thin air
As another reviewer said - they look great when you first throw them on, but just end up rolling around in the hips if sat too low, or riding up if sat too high (whether wearing skirts or pants)
Walking, working out and sleeping in these yields the same results for me - wearing small for 35 inch hips, they just bunch up as the hours and steps go by. The back also has a bit *too much* fabric for my liking also, which aesthetically makes them look a little awkward (as the fabric is thin, at least it doesn't impact comfort).
Nice concept, but definitely needs improvement. Lulu, please consider reinforcing the sides, perhaps with two layers of fabric? It is a total shame that these aren't up to scratch yet, as they do look very good (at first). Whilst I don't regret trying these out, I was still quite disappointed.
