Mula Bandhawear Bikini
Ordered a pair in black and just got it today. At first I was skeptical; it looked small when I took it out of the package and normally I wear a 6 in Lululemon bottoms and while I'm pretty small, my behind is not tiny. Tried them and they were a perfect fit! It's a flattering cut and it really does feel like you're not wearing anything. I have not done any workouts yet in them, but did a few jogging laps around the island in my kitchen and they stayed put (good enough of a test for me, haha) and no wedgies! Oh how I hate wedgies!
Anyways, I definitely plan to add a few more colors to my wardrobe.

I bought a pair in Kelowna, a few weeks back and had to buy more. I love these underwear. They are smooth, comfy and fit perfect. Yes I can exercise in them too!! thank you LULU

I normally don't buy things that I can't return, and I took a risk a few years back on the Technokini and it just didn't work for me. That was too tight (even though I did size up) and I still had VPL - not what I was looking for.
I went into lulu today and bought the Run: Inspire Crop, but realized that the underwear I owned was not going to work out. I happened to see a display with these and was skeptic. The salesperson helped me out with sizing, as I wear a 8 in crops (but have a sizeable behind) and she recommend sizing up, which was wonderful.
These have only been worn once, so I cannot speak to how they may hold up, although my fingers are crossed. These are so comfortable! I don't care for thongs anymore, and really liked how smooth these felt and they look good on too. I would recommend these, and hope that they hold up in wash just as well. I do plan to wash them in a gentle bag, like I do my other lulu/spandex items, so I think they should be alright.

I find this underwear very expensive, but ohhhh so comfy!! I have a hard time finding underwear that doesnt give me a wedgie! In fact, these undies felt like I had no underwear at all!!! I bought one pair to try and loved them so much, I ordered a second pair! :) They are made on the big side, I found. I wear 4 & 6s in Lulu pants and bought these undies in a S. Im 5'6...111 lbs, 34C....size S was just right. The material on these undies feels INCREDIBLE and I hope they will wash and dry OK. So far....so good! Also, I disagree with another reviewer...I did NOT see panty lines through my pants and jeans! VERY PLEASED with the style and comfort of these undies! Will buy more!! :)

Have been searching for comfy underwear for running and hiking/backpacking and these definitely rose to the occasion! Love them so much! Light weight I barely know they're there and they stay in place so no fear of a wedgie. Low rise but high enough for decent coverage.
As for pantylines... I think it goes without saying that all underwear will leave a line when worn with Lulu wear or any other tight fitted clothing. So don't buy if you're concerned about even the slightest of lines. I wear the thong version with Lulu wear.
Size is same as size for pants (ie. size 8 in pants would be medium or size 6/8 in the underwear).
Overall, great buy!

Mula Bandhawear Bikini
Overall, I love them and prefer them to the Technikini (which I also love). The only downer is that even with hand washing and hanging to dry only a few times, the band around the leg opening of one pair has come loose - I understand undies are "delicates", but I didn't expect these to be *that* delicate. That's the only thing that has me hesitating on stocking my lingerie drawer with these! It could be that one pair is a dud pair - the others have held up so far.

Stay away if you have hips
I love matching my lulu bras w/ underwear but lately the technikini is MIA. These underwear don't work for me at all. I have an hourglass figure, don't consider myself to have wide hips, but I'm also not narrow either. This underwear cuts in and is not as stretchy/giving as the technikinis. I even sized up just to be safe since they are not refundable. They aren't invisible or moisture wicking so they are basically poor fitting and over priced. Lulu underwear is hit or miss and has been more miss lately.

regret this purchase
I've never spent this much on underwear, and regret it. They leave terrible lines - so much they can be seen through jeans. The waistband is nice, but the material/elastic around the legs is super obvious under any pants.

not a fan
Sooo, this is a little biased, but since I was not offered any sort of options I feel I must share with all my fellow Lulu enthusiasts. After spending $500 in one go I feel some sort of accommodation should have been offered. I saw this Mula Bandhawear thong on a display and I loved it. I asked the associate which package contained it and she pointed me to this one, the "bikini" not the thong. I do not wear bikini underwear hardly ever. I do not like the lines that they leave and do not like the feel. I did not realize she had given me the wrong type until I got home and was very sad to see that it was the bikini and not the thong. I was on vacation in LA and did not notice until I was home in NorCal that they were the wrong style. There is a no return or exchange policy on any underwear for hygienic reasons... Which I understand, but I was mislead by the associate. My local Lulu store told me to go back to the store (in Los Angeles) to get the issue sorted... heh, yeah, let me hop back on a plane just to exchange an $18 pair of underwear that might not even be allowed, NOT happening. It also happened that my local store did not have my size (6) in the coral/orange color anyways. Still very disappointing that there was nothing offered other than to drive/fly back to LA to get it sorted. At least I have learned that I need to be extra careful when getting underwear and to open up the package IN STORE to see for myself that it is correct.
