Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luxtreme
disappointing to say the least
After hearing such great things about lululemon i finally decided to give their pants a shot. When i tried them on I fell in love...the fit was better than any workout pants I've ever had. Without even questioning my decision, I left the dressing room and went straight to the cash register to buy not one, but two pairs. Today was my first workout wearing them and I couldn't have had a worse experience. While working out my legs, i realized that they were see through and you could see the color of my underwear through the pant. Since i was already at the gym, i decided to stick it out and finish my workout. when i was almost finished, i also noticed that you could (obviously) see all the areas that i had perspired. needless to say, my trip to the gym was an embarrassing one...and i will be going back to the store to see if i can return them. I had higher expectations in the area of moisture control and the fabric itself.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER
I became a HUGE lululemon fan since last November with my first pair of pants being the wunder unders. So it's no surprise that I would opt for this being my 3rd pair of wunder under pants from lulu and I purchased it back in April. Almost 5 months in with these pants and they start unraveling! Not only do they unravel but the fabric is so thin, it created holes around the butt area. These were a perfect fit when I bought them and i've never had an instant where these felt too tight or small. Plus I put them on a hand wash cycle in the washing machine and hang dry versus using a drying machine. So I was EXTREMELY disappointed that this was the case. My first two pairs of wunder unders are still perfectly fine and i've consistently worn them to work out almost every week. For some reason, this one just never held up quite as well. I'll definitely have to think twice about ever buying pants at full price again because these were not cheap purchases and to have it not hold up for even half a year is crazy. Sure Nike doesn't feel as good as Lulu pants but they last for years! This has definitely changed my thoughts on lululemon and the wunder unders.

not up to lulu standards
I am not one to write a review, but after purchasing these pants 3 months ago I felt compelled to give my 2 cents.
I am consistently a size 6 at lulu and I always make sure to ask someone if the item fits me properly before making a purchase, But these pants always seem to be slipping down on me, and after wearing them for even a few minutes they seem to give me a slight muffin top. The real issue though is that the stitching is coming undone everywhere on these pants! The legs, the waistband, even my hips. I have never had an item from lulu fail me as much as these pants have.
Disappointed, especially since they're not cheap.

I LOVE these crops!! I went in looking for a pair to wear everywhere and everyday that weren't going to make me look short (I'm 5'2"), and the girl around the pants suggested these ones. I have worn them exactly what I had planned on wearing them for, plus hot yoga, and I fully plan on buying another pair! Again, love love love them!! Thank you Lululemon! <3

Super sad and dissapointed
So I recently moved away from vancouver & didn't have a chance to get a new pair. I've had my last pair for 5ish years and I lived in them. So I figured it was time for an upgrade so I saved my money for when I was coming down to visit. It was the top of my todo list so the first thing I did was go to park royal and try on some crops and some of the long legging type pants. Trying them on was fine but I noticed the fabric wasn't as thick as my old pair but I heard the fabric had been changed or something so I bought two pairs a crop and the long wunder unders.. I went to the bathroom and changed into my crops as soon as i left the store.. Later that day my friend had to cut a thread that was hanging down my butt which was embarrassing. So I'm back home and have had more of a chance to wear them and i've noticed little threads hanging out at the seams and a lot of pilling in the thigh area (I don't use a dryer for my clothes because I find hanging them to dry makes them last longer, so it couldn't be from that) & I haven't been very active and I've worn them maybe 5 times and it's a real let down that this is happening because I was so excited to get these and have a new pair :( they also fall down and i have to pull them up all the time.

Great fit, poor workmsnship!
Love the way they fit, yet seams are unraveling after a few gentle washes, and never have they been put in a dryer. Very disappointed in the stitching, yet I do like the fit and feel.

first unsatisfied pair
I have had many different kinds of lululemon pants and after wearing these about 3 times, the seams started to unravel and pilling. I am very upset this happened because i love the fit and style of them, but very dissatisfied with the quality of hemming. I would not recommend these for someone looking for long lasting, durable pants

First product I haven't absolutely LOVED
I have 4 pairs of lululemon pants (for yoga and barre classes) and this is the one pair that I truly regret getting. They were a gift from my sister (I requested them for my birthday), but after only wearing them a handful of times (and washing them on gentle in a lingerie bag), they have a) started to unravel at the seams to the point where there's now a hole in the back, and b) have started pilling at the seams. I haven't had a problem with any of my other pants so I'm truly disappointed at these. Would not recommend.

First purchase let-down.
These pants were my first Lulu purchase, and after hearing rave reviews, I couldn't wait to wear them. However, after the second wear, they were already pilling. I understand that that does happen to fabric, but seeing as this happened after two wears I was quite disappointed.

I bought these last year and loved them, so I went back and bought four more pairs this year. These have definitely withstood many washings and wearings--you can't tell the difference between my older and newer pants! I love that they're opaque, so I don't feel as though I'm putting everything on display when I work out. Also love how quickly they dry out--by the time I walk the three blocks from the gym to my apartment, they're dry (and I do sweat a lot). These do run small, though, so I would size up (I normally wear a 4 and had to go up to the 6).
