Mula Bandhawear Thong
Comfy, but material does not hold up.
I bought 2 pair of Lulu undies a few years ago. I can recall thinking they were a bit expensive at the time, but they have accompanied me on hundreds of runs without issue. They were comfortable and held up extraordinarily well. I tried a few other athletic brands, but found myself returning to them.
I replaced them with these, and found that these undies feel much lighter - more like something you would wear as an "every-day" type of panty. I was skeptical that they would hold up when I purchased them but bought them anyway recalling how well their predecessors performed.
The good news? It is comfy and stays put. I wore it for 13.5 miles beneath the Pace Setter Skirt and was pleased to have found a replacement...
Until I was getting undressed and saw that the front of the underwear had pilled from the top of the waistband all the way to the crotch. Now, it's UNDERwear, so this is purely a cosmetic issue, but I have never had this problem with the prior pairs (which were comprised of polyamind and elasthane instead of nylon and spandex).
If you are looking for something to wear beneath street clothes, this will probably work great for you. If, however, you plan on wearing this beneath tight-fitting materials for a work-out just note that the fabric may not look as nice as you would hope for $16 when your work-out is over.

I've outgrown VS undergarments, I felt as though hanky panky was just the same and nothing special or new and exciting, and I wasn't impressed with commando products in the least bit. A New Yorker who was in Florida on vacation, (go figure!) I asked the staff if they'd be honest with me if a product wasn't worth spending the money on. I asked them what they thought of lulu thongs- and they laughed as they had just been discussing purchasing one to find out. I tried them on today for the first time and thought they were fabulous!! I'm a petite and curvy 26 year old woman, 5'6", who wears size 8 pants at lulu. I purchased a M and it was perfect. I think these thongs are fabulous and can't wait to purchase a few more pairs! No VPL, didn't feel any digging, didn't need to feel the need to pick a weggy as I have in the past with other brands. If you're considering the purchase of these thongs, I'd definitely say give it a shot!

Purchased them today. Sales woman recommended them to me while I was trying out wonder unders. She said they don't show VPL. Got home and tried them on. You can totally see the lines. Also they keep riding down. Don't stay put.

I have just recently started to purchase from lululemon. I had bought some of the crop legging, regular leggings, and yoga pants. They are the best I have ever had!!!! I was so excited to wear them, and I wanted to try some of the underwear because I had heard how great they were. Sadly, I never got to try mine because when I opened them up their was like a sticky spot/ snag on them. It was very disappointing because I am in love with all the other lululemon products, and for an expensive pair of underwear I did not even get to wear them.

These underwear are amazing. Unbelievably soft, comfortable, breathable, and do not ride up regardless of your activity!

First problem with these...
I just purchased my third pair of these underwear as I have loved my other two. Unfortunately, this pair came with some sort of weird snag/sticky spot in the front right out of the package. :-( I'm not at all sure what this is, but certainly am hoping to find a resolution to this!

Until now, I had resigned to the dreaded panty line due to being unable to find comfy thong panties. These have changed that. They are comfortable, well made and i will definitely be purchasing more. Thank you LuluLemon!

LOVE LOVE LOVE
DO NOT GET RID OF THESE EVER!! I seriously am in love and have officially thrown out my old undies one by one as I replace them with the Mula Bandhawear thongs. They don't stretch out when I get sweaty and work out. They also stay in place whether I am at CrossFit, spin, or yoga.

LOVE THIS UNDERWEAR!
This is the best. Seriously. I don't know why I don't have 20 more pairs. I do laundry sometimes just so I can wear LuLu underwear and not anything else. It fits well (I'm 5'7", 120lbs) size small, and no underwear lines show. It doesn't move at all during the day. The material is super soft and it is so comfy.

YES. This thong. I'm very fussy about underwear, and the fact that I couldn't really take it out of the box in the store to see the size of it left me crossing my fingers that I bought the right size and that it would fit me ok. I'm not sure why this is sized as S/M/L online when the boxes in the store are marked 4/6, 6/8, 8/10. I bought e 4/6, which I'm guessing is size S, and while the rise on it is a little higher than what I'm used to, it fits perfectly everywhere else. Super lightweight, keeps everything properly covered, and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing underwear at all. No VPLs, especially with my ebb & flow crops, which definitely show VPLs in the waistband area of my underwear/the crops if I wear the wrong underwear. Haven't yet exercised in the thong, but I'd imagine it's perfect. Definitely a must have!
