Mula Bandhawear Thong
Good but not great
I wanted to try these because they received so many good reviews. Like others have noted here though, I wish they came in XS. I am 5'1 and 108lbs. Muscular and athletic build. I have tried many thong underwear in the past and have never really liked them. I wanted something that would not show VPL. I bought the black in size S. These were comfortable enough but a little loose and while working out when they get damp/wet from sweat they get even looser and saggy. They do not stay put and I really think LuLu needs to make a smaller size. They would probably be fine for day to day wear if you are not working out and want to wear with leggings or tighter pants without VPL.

Great, at first
I was so excited by these underwear at first. But I've now worn a pair 4 times and there's a hole in the thong portion, not even on a seam so it can be fixed. Such a disappointment.

Love the underwear... HATE the quality
I wanted some good underwear that doesn't shift for my moksha (hot yoga) class. And these were great, so comfy, stays in place... great colors. However, the WORST quality I've ever had in a pair of undies. After three uses and three washes there are two giant holes... one at the crotch and one in the bum. For $16 I expect MUCH better quality. Lulu really let me down on this one :(

Perfect for spin class
These Mula Bandhawear thong panties are crazy soft and comfortable, and are now my go-to spinning underwear (I pretty much have every color). I've found that they are the only underwear that don't shift during cycling and don't cause any discomfort or friction. However, fit/sizing is key. If too large for you, they will likely move around on you during your workout since the fabric feels thin and delicate. They run a bit large, so if you are a true LLL size 2, the Small (2/4) will likely feel too loose. I typically wear 4-6 in LLL bottoms and the size small fits perfectly. If you are much smaller than a 4, you might want to try the "light as air" underwear, which seem to run a little smaller than the Mula bandhawear.

Best underwear ever!!
The Lululemon Bandhawear Thong is the best underwear ever! I love it!! It is by far the SOFTEST underwear I have every tried on in my life. It works well as workout thong or just a regular thong for everyday. It is the most comfortable underwear and thong I have ever worn!! It is made from modal which is one of the softest fabrics!! So soft and comfy!! I am usually not a thong-wearer because it feels so uncomfortable for me. I did not feel like I was wearing anything at all, it was so soft and comfortable, did not ride up, is sweat-wicking, did not roll, no panty lines, and stayed put even when I did deep squats. Love this thong!! It is very flattering too and has no chafing!! Very good for people with sensitive skin This is my fourth product from Lulu and I am very happy with all of my products and I finally found the best thong!! I will never go back to the uncomfortable Under Armour, New Balance, or any other brand for workout thongs. I will definitely be buying more of these thongs!! I can't wait to try it on a Lulu pant soon!! Great job Lulu!! I am very happy with all of your products I have purchased and especially this one!! :)

Falls apart after first wear!
I love Lululemon workout thongs, but these are made of SUCH thin material they fall apart instantly.
I recently purchased two pairs from the nearest Lululemon store. I had washed them and let them air dry TWO times. I recently went to put them on and they had completely fallen apart!
I really wish Lululemon wouldn't slack on their materials seeing as they charge high prices for all of their attire.

Amazing! ...if it actually fits.
The material is oh-so soft and the deep purple color is really a favorite of mine! I wanted to love these so so much, but after a few weeks of trying to make them work I'm afraid they are meeting their doom in the trash.
Since I'm normally a size 4 in all Lulu's bottoms, I ordered a size small in both the Mula Bandhawear Thong and the Light As Air Thong... really excited to finally try (& ideally convert entirely!) to Lululemon's underwear selection.
The verdict? The size small in both cuts are HUGE. The Mula Bandhawear Thong was slightly more fitting, but still it is uncomfortably too large and just makes taking a yoga class a nightmare of awkward thong adjustments. An unfortunate $30+ loss. Will keep my eyes out for an XS option.

these panties feel so fantastic that I had to order three more colors...they hold up through hot yoga quite well, quite literally. They wash nice too :)

Miss the old undies
I LOVE the underwear lulu made 2 years ago they were like the "light as air" undies but the material was a little thicker and they were fantastic. The "light as air" material is way to thin ( have had two pairs fall apart) and the thong on these is much to wide. I can't wear them very long because of shaffing so total fail for me. The material is soft but if you are going to make a thong it needs to be thinner strip!

Absolutely love this thong. Not only is it silky soft and feels amazing, but it's THE ONLY thong I own that I haven't found myself readjusting throughout the day, even once. I've never adjusted this thong once I've put it on and it stays put AND makes your backside look amazing! Not sure what it is, but it makes your backside look more "bubbly" and round. Love it. The only thing I don't like is that I find if I wear it for a longer period of time (one time I slept over at a friends house and didn't change until the night after) I feel like it digs in where the outer bottom part of the thong is along the front "v" (the part you can see when standing. Not sure if it's just because they got all twisted up when I slept (in a ball of blankets, lol) but it only happened once, so we'll see.
Only thing other I dislike is that sometimes when I'm in a rush and I pull my wunder unders on fast, the sides roll. Perfectly fine once I flatten them, but I wish they stayed flat! It's more of my problem than the thong's, but whatever.
