Wunder Under Pant *Full-On Luon (Roll Down)
LOVE LOVE LOVE
These fit like a dream! I've been wearing them for a few weeks now and I haven't had to pull them up once (I'm 5'7", 135 lbs., fuller hips 'n thighs). The fabric hasn't pilled in the slightest (the other reviewers probably got crazy one-off factory mishaps) and the construction is holding together beautifully. the high waist is perfect for all the bending and stretching I do; I never worry about who's getting a peak at my panties.
There are a lot of reviews on this site that had me spooked about trying Lulu Lemon products, but I took a shot and I'm glad I did. I'll be purchasing more. And if I end up getting a pair of dud pants, Lulu will make it right and I'll end up with something good to show for it.

Love And Hate
As much as I love the look of the high waisted Roll Down Wonder Under, I was told from a friend when I bent over that my pants were sheer. I was embarrassing because he guessed the color of my undergarments correctly, on top of that they really do roll down and I have to hike them back up. i'm unsatisfied with these pants but love the look.

A Positive Review!
LOVE these pants. I saw a lot of negative reviews and wanted to counter with my experience- bought these four days ago and have worn them for three workouts and around the house for the rest of the time. No pilling problems, no sheerness problems, nothing. I love the high waist- prevents any sag problems during leg day, and I can tuck my phone in the waistband during arm day while I listen to music. I've used them so far for running, walking, and weightlifting. The print is great, the quality is great!
For reference, I weigh 124 pounds and I am a size two in pants everywhere else, but I wear a six in everything Lulu. Following this sizing, I have never had any fabric or seam issues.
Love these pants!

really liked these
I enjoy doing heated yoga. So, you may not like these for the intense heat. But I do. The fabric does not seem like it is breathable for hot yoga. And afterwards they are a bit harder to take off. But I do not mind that. So any other hot yoga fans, just be aware, they will make you sweat. Again, I do not mind that.
I like the high waist as I never feel like my stomach is sticking out when doing twists, etc.
I wish they had better patterns. Make these more fun. Right now, I feel these target women in their 40s (which I am) as tummy tuckers. So, give us some fun pants to wear too.

Love these leggings - the high rise, the material and the quality. Purchased the Desert Snake print - beautiful color and design. No pilling, not see-thru. Flattering. Always Wash all Luon Lulu items together. No problems. Not sure what all the negativity is based on... perhaps depending on your body shape, some styles will fall down, some will pill where you rub? Nothing lasts forever. I buy Lulu because it lasts a lot longer than other brands - and I get my moneys worth with the amount I wear it - which is a lot :)

Love these and the High Times
I have three pair of WUs (Coco Pique and two pairs of Diamond Jacquard) as well as multiple pairs of the similar High Times pant. None of them have any pilling, and it certainly isn't because I have a thigh gap. I'm currently a solid 8.
I have two daughters who also wear a lot of Lulu so I wash all athletic wear in a special load each week being very careful not to include any cotton or wool items. I know that not everyone will have as many Luon/Luxtreme items on wash day as I do, but I really think it helps to not mix the clothing in with other fabrics. You could certainly argue that we shouldn't have to be this careful with leggings but if I'm going to spend this much, then I'm willing to take care of them in this way.
I do find that the quality varies very much by fabric; some luon is sheer, some is thick and compressive. The variance is why I've given these leggings four stars instead of five. I have high expectations and will only buy them in fabrics I'm very happy with. I've been wearing the three pairs above since the fall, and I'm happy to report that none of them are even slightly sheer (the Diamond Jacquard fabric is the best I've ever bought from Lulu) nor do any of them have even the beginnings of pilling. That may change over times, but they still look as new today as when I bought them.
As a 40-something mother of three, I love the high waist. My stomach will never be as flat as it was before I had kids but these do a great job of giving the illusion of a much more toned tummy.
I definitely recommend these with the caveat that it's important to be choosy with fabric choice. I hate denim luon and a lot of the prints feel too much like luxtreme for me. I stick to thick soft fabrics.

Love the pant, but some fabric issues
First of all, I have owned a 5 pair of luon wunder unders. I love them. They maintain their shape and keep everything looking smooth. However the quality has reduced. Unless you have thigh gap there does get to be some piling on the inside of the crotch. Luckily the store took them back because of this reason but they said that if the piling didn't match the colour of the pants, that it wasn't the pants piling it was another fabric. I can understand this, but the pants are losing their quality if other fabric piling sticks to the pants so much that you have to shave it off. Also - you are bound to catch other fabric colours if you cover up in a blanket, wear a long sweater or even wash them with another colour.
I wish the quality would improve. All the same they are super comfortable and part of my usual clothing rotation - I just don't like the fact that you have to constantly be shaving the pants.

I've had these for just over a month and there is pilling in the crotch already. This is not my first pair of wunder under so i was disappointed when they started to pill so quickly. I will definitely think twice about getting another pair like this.

These pants fit like silky soft clouds. They comfort me when I'm feeling chunky. They put a tushy on me when before there was just thack (thigh=>back). They can make me feel like a million buckaroos.
But dear LORD. The pilling is insanity. My once all-black pants look like they are diseased and dying, scarred and speckled from small pox. I've had them for a couple of months, but it looks like they are about 47 years old. I care for them exactly as instructed, washed with synthetic workout fabrics, no drying. Nothing works. I spend time in front of the TV picking off the millions of pill balls, unwilling to break down and buy one of those sweater shavers because they are YOGA pants. And that would be RIDICULOUS.
What do I do? I don't feel like I've been taken care of, Lulu.
