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.

No show perfect
I use to buy VS seamless and no show panties and they did not fit right and you can still see 'the lining' when I wear my yoga and leggings. BUT this product by far has been the best no show panties! It's super light and comfortable.
I am 5'0, petite with a big bottom. This is my first pair and I bought the thong version in the store. I will definitely buy more!!

THE BEST UNDERWEAR
I cant even describe how amazing this thong is but I'll try. First of all I don't even notice the thong but it also covers up areas that need some more coverage. When I do notice it, it is only positive ways. The material is so incredibly soft and silky. It never stops you in the middle of a workout from being scratchy or uncomfortable, etc. This thong only supports and feels amazing. I know its expensive but it is worth the price.

not good quality
I bought this as my first Lulu thong and fell in love! It was SO comfy and I was bragging to all my friends about it! But then about a few weeks after I got it it was ripping on the sides. And now I had to sew it just to keep it together. I was really bummed out by that because it had great potential.

Great for intended use, poor return policy
I own several pairs of the light as air thong, and have generally been satisfied with the form fit and lightweight fabric. The thin material is great for sweaty workouts, and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
Unfortunately, the one of my newest pairs (received as a gift) developed a run in the front. The thin fabric may be prone to damage, but I'm not sure if this is a universal manufacturing defect or if I just received a defective pair. The King of Prussia, PA location would not exchange for a defect-free item.

amazing for hot yoga!
I love this pair of underwear!! I was hesitant when my mom bought these for me for my 60 day hot yoga challenge. I wear a size 10/12 and every time I buy a large underwear from anywhere else it is way too big in the crotch, these are perfect. I went with a size large and they fit great! No issues during yoga except it stays in place even if my cheap yoga pants won't (not lulu btw).

Light as Air Thong Cheaply Made
I purchased my 1st pair of underwear from LuLuLemon as I wanted a nice thong that woudn't show through my yoga pants. I purchased the Light as Air Thong & when I got home & took them out of the package - the center was ripped. I immediately call the store & explained what happened. They said there is no returns on any underwear. I hadn't even worn them - just took the tag off. Very expensive pair of thongs I won't be wearing. Skip these - can get better quality else where.

Work great for me
I love these undies! I have several pair and have not had any of the issues that other reviewers have listed.
I normally wear an 8 in bottoms but sized up to a L in these - laser cut edges can roll if the garment is too tight. I also work in the apparel industry and knowing the feel of the fabric it didn't seem like it would stretch for years like seamless.
I have worn these for yoga and running- no issues with fit or performance. The nude color works great under my light colored yoga pants. Also have not had any issues with the fabric in wash. I wash on delicate cycle with other lulu non cotton items.
Looking forward to trying the hipster version.

not what I hoped for
These underwear do not feel light as air.
Because they bunch up around the hips or sides of the garment, they
are not invisible under clothes.
This was a big disappointment for $16 because they are not returnable.
What a bummer!

Totally Not Worth Trying
I should've read the reviews before purchasing, but I was in the store and wanted to try each style of underwear. I washed and tried these on and they were hideous.. I am a not a small person, but these made me look like I was trying to fit into my little sister's underwear. There was no give to them, so I don't know how these would stay in place while working out.
The shape of the underwear is symmetric which a woman's body is not the same in the front as in the back... These do not make any sense at all.
