Light As Air Thong
no, no, NO
Totally disappointed. I bought these for wear under some of my thinner Lululemon crops, loving the feel and lightness of the fabric. I put them on and immediately forgot I had them on. Lovely. I bought 2 pairs, and I was already so happy.
The love stopped there. As another reviewer pointed out, a short while into my yoga practice ALL I could think about was the thong riding higher and higher up. Really annoying, and SO uncomfortable. Ok, so they're not for yoga.
I next tried them on my run the following day. I wore them under some Luxtreme crops, which usually show all underwear lines. These were invisible. I was, again, happy with the look. Unfortunately, as soon as I started to sweat, the "seams" seemed to roll against my body, instead of moving with me. That caused them to ride up in the back AND front, creating an uncomfortable situation.
Sweat: When these get wet during yoga or a run, the fabric slips and rolls, and becomes slightly stiff. Really odd.
Washing: These are now unbearably huge. I washed them as per Lulu instructions, and now they're so huge. The seams are also rolled so badly that I think these are beyond saving.
Bottom line: Possibly good for everyday, but not good if you're planning to move a lot or sweat in them.

Amazingly comfortable workout thong
I rarely wear undergarments when I work out, because I hate lines, and I hate wedgies! Enter the light as air thong. I struggled to buy these at first, as I was terrified I'd get the wrong size--at $16 a pop, I don't want to be stuck with a thong that's too big or too small! For reference, I'm generally a 4 at Lululemon; occasionally a 6. I went with the 2/4, and they fit PERFECTLY. I didn't feel them whatsoever during my vinyasa class, and will be back soon to buy a few more pairs.

These are the best underwear ever! I am slowly replacing all my underwear with these. Light, airy, and barely there, and I sweat a lot! I especially love the material and they wash up easily. Mostly seamless, they are tacked together on each side in the front. Careful to pay attention if the tacking comes apart. I only mention this because I had a pair come apart during a workout. If I had tacked it back together when I first noticed it, it wouldn't have happened. Regardless, I love these underwear, I totally give them 5 stars, and they will continue to be my go to! Although I am generally a 4/6 (small) in Lulu, I sized up to a Medium. I found it to be a more comfortable fit for me. These are really great for traveling too...they take up very little space compared to other undies like Hanky Panky.

I love the Light as Air thongs, not sure why they haven't gotten unanimous love over here in reviews. Yes, they're not inexpensive, but they are extremely comfortable, they don't chafe, and they hold up well. They're invisible under all my Lulu bottoms too.
One thing to improve upon - the color choices! I've been facing the same sad colors in my local Lulu stores for months now. Glad there are a few more trickling in now online, but please make HAPPY, BRIGHT colors. No one wants to work out in depressing knickers - give us more bright pinks, bright aquas (Scuba Blue, for instance), and other energizing shades. Thanks guys.

I was visiting Chicago for a weekend and of all things forgot to pack underwear! Bought two pair of these and they were fine for the weekend. BUT after the first wash, the seams fell apart. Ugh. $32 gone. Totally not the Lululemon quality I am used to paying for. Extremely disappointed.

Don't do it!
My main issue is with the fabric rolling. It literally rolls on both sides into your private girly parts... ouch! It is horrific to say the least. It does not say in place at all.

Rolling and riding
These are the worst. I put them on and absolutely loved how they felt... soft and smooth, no panty lines and no muffin top. BUT after about a half an hour of walking and constantly having to unroll the sides and readjust the crotch I had to change before my run. Very disappointing for $16 underwear!!

worth the money
A lady at the store talked me into them and I was so skeptical at first. I wore them and loved them, but was still skeptical they wouldn't wash well. I was pleasantly surprised! I went online and ordered several pairs to get me through a week. They're all I use now.

too big, don't stay in place
I normally wear a size 4 in lulu leggings, but decided to size down for the thong. I bought the smallest size they have, and it was way too big! I couldn't believe just how big they were. I loved the feel of the material, and I'm fairly crafty so I decided to alter them myself, just brought the seams in to make them a little more snug. Now they fit great, but as other reviewers have said, they did not stay in place at all. Any amount of exercise had them slipping and sliding around. Not comfy at all.

Let me start off by saying that I love Lululemon clothing and I wear it every day at the gym, trails, or studio but I have to say these panties are awful. I was in the store last week and after purchasing two leggings, I was persuaded by a salesperson that these panties were the best and didn't show panty lines. While that part is true, nothing else was. After an at home yoga session, I found that my panties were soaked in sweat (yuck), kept moving upwards (double yuck), bunching (triple yuck), etc. Nothing that these panties claimed, were true. I understand their return policy on such items but I'm highly upset that I wasted almost $50 for two pairs of panties that now just sit in my dresser drawer. Perhaps Lulu could remake this panty and reimburse us unhappy yogis. There's nothing worse than soaked bunched up panties...
