Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luxtreme
Perfect every day crops
I got these crops with rowing in mind - a tight but comfortable fit ensures that the pants will not get caught in the slide, but the stretchy fabric allows for full movement. They washed up well, and where I usually get pilling due to thighs rubbing, I haven't had issues. I love these for running and cardio classes as well.

I was leery about buying these because of the mixed reviews on the fabric, but have not been disappointed. The fabric is silky and does not attract lint and dog hair like the luon WUs. It's got some nice compression to it and does not show any lumps and bumps and is not sheer at all :) I did only give them four stars, due to the fact that until I start to sweat, they do slip a bit. Once I am sweating, they stay put. I think they fit TTS, I am 5'5", 139lbs and the 8 fits just like my other 8s from Lulu.

Not the Lulu I used to know
I am sad to say this will be the last pair of Lulu pants I will be buying. The fabric and fit are completely different than they used to be. The fabric, which once felt luxurious and expensive, now feels cheap and thin. The fit, somehow tighter and saggier at the same time. I used to love my Wunder Unders. The pairs I purchased even two years ago are still in regular rotation. I teach yoga and am in yoga clothes all the time. While I love the colors and design of Lulu clothes, I can't justify the price for ill-fitting, apt to sag bottoms.

Just not for me...
This just wasn't the fabric for me. However, if you like that type of fabric, I'm sure you would love these. They seemed well made and I didn't see any sheerness issue like some reviewer's say. They also were true to size.

If you're doing anything other than walking or sitting, these are sheer. If your body is going to be in motion, don't wear these. I bought these for barre class, but now they are only worn if I'm at home.

LOVE! Luxtreme all the way!
While shopping at the store, a Lululemon sales girl was giving me the pitch for these crops and the Full luxtreme fabric as I was looking for a crop I could do hot yoga in. When I tried them on, they were light yet opaque (I made sure to bend over in the dressing room to make sure they weren't see through and they aren't) and felt like second skin while holding everything in. There is even a compartment for a key/yoga card/etc. I liked that they are opaque, felt comfortable and made me feel confident and fabulous. I purchased a black pair and was very excited to wear them to my next hot yoga class. On my way to yoga class, I felt as if my pants were falling down exposing my underwear and pulling them up. I worried I'd be giving the class a show or constantly pulling at my pants but to my surprise, once I started to sweat, the pants stayed in place! Like suction cups, the pant did not budge, ride up, etc. Great yoga pant also gave me some grip for certain asanas and recommended for hot yoga or activities that you are sure to sweat in.
For reference, I'm 5'1, 34-24-33 and bought a size 4, pant hits a few inches below my knee. No camel toe or see through-ness!

I love Luxtreme!
I have lulu pants and crops in just about every fabric they all come in. From now on, I will ONLY buy Luxtreme! Stretchy but compressive, no lint (that's no fun), kinda shiny and sleek. Good for everything! Running, spinning, yoga. Looking cool running around town. Best fabric ever! Woohoo!

Perfect for figure/physique/bb
I'm a physique competitor and find it nearly impossible to find shorts, pants, or capris that fit. I went up a size to accommodate my quads but the waist still fits without slipping and I don't have excess fabric anywhere else. They are opaque, even in a deep squat, and I feel completely covered. I love the material which is tight and smooth without pinching or creating rolls when I bend. The length is perfect for me (5'6) and I'm usually on the fence when it comes to hemming. I'm pretty self conscious about my backside and these are the first tight fitting bottoms I feel comfortable enough to wear with a shorter top. I was concerned about the line running down the center and how it could accentuate certain features, but it does not. Honestly, these are the best looking and most flattering crops I own. I purchased every color, which is saying something since my bottoms are ALWAYS black. Btw, my favorite is the burlap texture black. They look more like denim than what is pictured. Love. Love. Love.

Not A Fan
I am a hardcore Lululemon fan and purchase at least 1-2 pairs of crops and pants per month. These are by far the worst feeling for me and most uncomfortable crops I have every bought. I know most of the long time Lulu customers are disappointed with the newer fabrics and lack of quality of said fabrics, myself being one of them. I took the tags off thinking that I would have no issue with them but wish I could return them. The seems have already started to come apart and they have only been worn for an hour around the house and never washed.
Being a new mother makes it even harder to afford these items, but I still purchase these pants religiously and am so upset with the quality and feel of these particular ones. Now I have $86.10 in a pair of legging that I will never wear and cant return. I have learned my lesson and will not be wasting any more money on the Luxtreme material anymore and hope that with the amount of complaints that Lulu has received, maybe just maybe they will consider bringing back the previous fabric that everyone loved.

love the fit
I love luxtreme WU crops and pants. They are nice and compressive and dont attract lint like regular luon. I have black, inkwell and camo and found all 3 to be opaque and not sheer in my tts. I find that they work better if you stay in your tts size, they are meant to be compressive. If I sized up, they initially feel like they fit well but as I moved around I could tell I would have to constantly pull them up.
