Light As Air Thong
One wash and they're gone...
I bought a couple of pairs of these in different colours. I found the fit true to size. Hand washed them before wearing and everything was fine. After washing in the machine however, the seams at the front came apart. They look to be just glued together. I have several lulu items and have been more than happy with all, plus any issues in the past have been addressed in a very positive way, however I'm far to embarresed to bring back used underwear to the store which leaves me out of pocket $32.00. Very disappointed, hope that this construction issue is resolved for future clients or this item is replaced with a better product.

I got these last year in pink for a dance performance where I could have no VPL. At first I thought they were good until I started moving. I got the smallest size yet they are still too big. Moving my legs at all would cause them to ride up in all of the wrong places. I was so uncomfortable and had to keep going to the bathroom to adjust them. I kept noticing that they were rolling and showed some pretty prominent lines through my leggings. Lastly, after wearing them twice, the seam in the front completely fell apart! I was highly disappointed and brought them back where the lady there exchanged them but the same thing has happened to my new pair. Please take my advice and DO NOT BUY THESE UNDERWEAR!!

My Worst Lulu Puchase Ever
Unfortunately, the "Light as Air Thong" in black, size 6/8, has been a serious disappointment for me. Thankfully, I only purchased one pair.
There are several shortcomings (quality is very dubious), but the one that is completely unforgivable is that these things don't stay put: they creep, and they bunch, and they shift, and they are incredibly uncomfortable.
They have underperformed (by creeping and shifting) in every activity I have worn them for: cycling, running, yoga, and strength training. To have to run out of a class and to the washroom to pick one's underwear out of her "lady parts" just really should not happen.
I wear a size 6 or 8 pant, and I purchased the 6/8. The fit seems fine.

Won't stay put, not sized well
I've been on the hunt for comfortable underwear to work out in since all the pairs that I've bought elsewhere weren't right, and the ladies in the store spoke very highly of these. I asked if they stayed in place while running and it turned out that nobody in the store had ever run in them, so I figured if they don't work for that, at least they vouched for their comfort in yoga, and surely they'd be fine for strength training, etc. Nope.
Unfortunately, these do not stay put at all in any activity! I wear a size 2 in their pants but the 2/4 in these is too big. If they were made to truly fit a size 2, maybe I would have a more similar experience to the ladies that recommended them? I'm hesitant to give only 1-star since I can't tell if they'd be better if they fit.

I have several other pairs that I love and fit great, but for whatever reason, this pair is much lower quality and they do not fit the same. The material feels almost synthetic-like. I ordered the same size I always do, but they are much tighter than my other pairs. I am disappointed that there isn't any sort of warning or disclaimer if certain products with the same name are manufactured differently - be it by material or specifications. Perhaps it's a fluke, but I'm still out the money and stuck with a poor product.

I loved these when I first put them on, but as soon as I began running, they began to creep up my crotch! OUCH! Made for such a painful running experience. I would wear these everyday, but I do NOT recommend these for running.

Nearly Naked :)
These underwear are light, comfortable and surprisingly durable. They're breathable and basically look and feel invisible....which is exactly what underwear should be....plus they have a few pattern pairs that are polka dots and cute designs which are a fun change from plain colors.

I had these underwear for about 2 weeks and didn't wear them more than 4 times and i noticed the seam on the side was starting to tear apart. This was very disappointing because of the amount of money i spent on them and they were so comfortable.

move around where you dont want them to
love the fabric & they are as light as air. Disappointed however as the sides not only roll around so does the crotch, very uncomfortable!

I love lululemon for the quality of their products. All my tank tops and capris are from lulu. I've been on the hunt for the no-show underwear, and it looks like this Light As Air thong is the best...IF THEY FIT.
I'm consistently a size 2 in tops and bottoms. Sadly, the sizing for underwear overall, runs a bit large, but still wearable. However, what's worse is that the sizing isn't consistent. I bought several pairs of these thongs in size Small - 2/4 (there's no size 2 or XS) and some are cut obviously larger than others, making the larger ones unwearable. Two out of three thongs that were supposedly all the same size were too big and they differed in size from one another.
It would be very odd to bring these to your local tailor to get them altered. All lulu underwear are final sale whether purchased on-line or in-store, so it seems like I'm out of luck. Be careful with your purchase! This product, sadly, has been the most disappointing of my purchases from lulu. Cannot justify gambling that a pair would fit for $16 a pop.
