why we made this
Lasercut, lightweight and softer than silk, this thong was designed to sit like a second skin so we can slip them on and take off. We developed them with Nakedseam™ technology to keep our training runs seamless. Literally.
fabric + features
constructed with bonded seams to keep that irritating chafe at bay
made with Transluxent™ fabric - a moisture-wicking wonder with great shape retention
the lascercut thong shape helps to avoid VPL (visible panty lines)
Awesome for hot yoga
I absolutely love these undies for sweaty activities such as spin or hot yoga. They are comfortable, breathable and wick sweat away. They are the only underwear I wear for these activities.
I have not had any issues with rolling or bunching whatsoever, so perhaps it is a sizing issue for others?
These get tossed in a regular wash with all my workout gear and have held up like new after being washed dozens of times.

Love these for everyday wear..
I really like these for everyday wear..but for working out I really prefer the previous fabric which was a little thicker. All in all I do like these thongs comfortable and very breathable.

I bought the Light As Air Thong in May and I've been obsessed ever since. I don't have the bunching up problem at all. These are my favorite pair of underwear, and I feel like I'm not even wearing any when I have these on. All these bad reviews are probably because of poor sizing. Look ladies get a size that fits you and quit complaining. Who cares if its a size bigger than you normally wear, you'll be so comfortable you'll totally forget!

waste of money!
These seem great, until you wear them for more than 5 minutes. They roll, twist and ride up. I've tried them under yoga pants, jeans, basically any bottoms I own. Same problem every time, CT, rolling and twisting. Save your money.

I'm just wondering what kind of quality control did these go through before they were approved? The sizing is completely off. I wear a size 8 in the Wunder Under and Astro pant but the size L did not come close to fitting me. They were very tight and rolled minutes after putting them on. As for moisture wicking - definitely not. Don't let the silky smooth fabric fool you. Not worth the $16.

These are silky and light, so much so that they move around constantly and end up feeling like a rubber band around your hips that hold up the rubber band between your legs. I tried wearing them with yoga pants, jeans and skirts. Same problem every time. Terrible. I do not recommend these. I won't even take them to Goodwill because that would just be mean.

New reinforced seams this season! No more rolls!
I've been buying the light as air thong for the past few months (I haven't tried the hipster yet), and liked them because of how light and silky they felt. And although I did experience the rolling problem at the sides, it was minimal enough for me to overlook and I found them to be one of my most comfortable and discreet thongs to wear with my yoga pants. However, the "looseness" kept me from using them in more higher impact sports such as crossfit or running.
I bought a new pair of these Light as Air yesterday on a whim as I felt like I wanted a dark colored thong...
...I took them out of the box and felt them and first thought...WAIT, these feel much stiffer than the normal light as air. Did I buy the wrong undies? And then I realized...that the top edge was no longer just a free-cut edge but actually a slightly thicker, reinforced seam! And it wasn't bulky either, but definitely gives a little more body to the thong as a whole. I put the thong on, and it still had the light and airy feeling but the sides didn't roll!!!
I actually owned several of the groovy thongs back in the day and loved the "seamlessness" of them, and was sad to see them die off in stores (although they are a little bulkier). I feel like with this new seam addition added in the Light as Air thong to the newer colors, this thong basically rivals, if not BETTERS the groovy thongs of the past, with more silkiness and less bulk!
THANK YOU lulu for making this small addition to this thong...I now want to try the hipster version (which I have been shying away from because of the "rolling")
For reference, I picked up a thong in the "inkwell" color I believe...it is very dark blue. some of the colors still available from the summer do not have this feature yet, just on the newer colors so check the images on the website to see if that reinforced seam on the top edge is there or not (I think Split Pea and Plum have it but the other colors don't)

Not good at all
I just bought these today because I wanted a comfortable, sweat-wicking thong. First off, they're super unflattering. I wear a 10-12 and bought a large, and they bind in all the wrong places. The crotch panel is very narrow and rides up in front. I wore them for only 10 minutes and they rolled down at the waist. I wish I could return them, but underwear is a final sale. I'm very disappointed with this purchase.

These looked really cute online but they're the thinnest little piece of material imaginable. The fell like they're going to rip and they roll down a bit.
Pick up a Mula Bandhawear instead. Much nicer product at the same price.

I hand washed these when I first bought them. Wore them around the house for a few hours and the first time I used the restroom I noticed the liner had almost completely come off. Very poor product for 16.00 underwear.
