Wunder Under Pant *Full-On Luxtreme (Roll Down)
I fell in love with these pants when I first saw them online. I love the roll down WU's, they are so comfortable and don't dig in, and the pique inkwell/black color looked so nice online!!
However, when I recieved these in the mail I was somewhat dissapointed. The color wasn't as dark as online, these look washed out. I put them on, and they are really comfortable, so I thought i would give them a try.
Well, they weren't super tight to start off with, I think the sizing is a little off. (I ordered my usual size 8) AND they completely stretched out with just one wear. THe crotch is all baggy. They are also unlike the other coco pique material, they are super thin! I was expecting something much more thick and fuzzy. The WU in cotton are thicker than these!!
I'm not sure I can return these now since I have worn them, but I really don't like to spend 102$ on what will now be lounge pants.

Coco pique pattern not like photo
I ordered the Fuel Green Coco Pique when they uploaded - I love coco pique, I love fuel green, I love the roll down style. I was however disappointed to find that the coco pique pattern ran vertical, rather than horizontal, as the photo shows. So far, I have decided to keep as I love the colour and find the roll down waist to be great for pregnancy! It's a small detail but just wanted to give a heads up for anyone considering ordering.

Sheer when bending over
I recently purchased the laser cut wunder unders with the roll-down top. They fit me perfectly - I have never been so please with a fit of pants. Unfortunately, when I bent over in Zumba class to stretch, you could definitely see through the seat of the pants :(
I went in the store to try on the regular wunder unders to see if this happened again. I found that the regular Luon was sheer when bending over, but the "Luxtreme" was not sheer.
I am disappointed that I've spent so much money on workout pants that show my undies. Recently, I've had to purchase new pants because I lost some weight and toned up - was really excited to buy new pants. I've been wearing my old, but too big I have to keep pulling them up wunder unders. I bought them maybe 4 years ago and some how they still hold up and aren't ever in the least bit sheer when bending over.
I thought Lululemon addressed this issue. :( Guess I'll be doing the bend over test every time I buy a new pair of workout pants.

I purchased the inkwell pique WUs and I am very disappointed - the pants are see-through. I would expect that of a $20 wal-mart pair, but not $100+ lululemons. I have a number of pique pants/crops (all in the same size) from previous years and there is no way this year's compares. This pair feels cheap and thin. I know the advice is to take it into the store, but the 9 hour drive isn't worth it to me and it bugs me that I have to pay to return product that is subpar.

Inkwell pique. Thin, sheer, faux camel toe. Egads!
I buy most of my Lulu online since I live nowhere near close to a store. It can sometimes be a gamble ordering online for obvious reasons (can't try it on, etc) but with WUP, I usually know what I'm getting. I have multiple pairs of these pants and have never been disappointed... until now.
I ordered the inkwell/black pique in my tts 4 but they fit almost a size larger because they are so stretchy soft. These pants are described as luon (light luon?) but are incredibly thin, non-compressive and *gasp* sheer even in a slight bend. I expected a tight, thick weave because they are pique... apparently one pique is not like the other.
They are buttery soft which is a plus but the color looks faded, almost wash worn faded.
Wearing them with the waistband up doesn't create a muffin top but a muffin ring around my middle where the waistband sits, I consider myself fairly toned and am 115 lbs for reference. This was a Wunder Under first for me.
Not to mention, when I tried them on, my 19 yr old daughter laughed and said it looked like I had camel toe.
FYI; I didn't have them pulled up to high heaven to create CT, they weren't even snug in the crotch- it is the way the seam comes down and creates a crotch divide and the loose fabric droops on either side creating a faux camel toe.

Aren't $100 pants.
I have several pairs of wunder unders and I love them. I just purchased the luon pique inkwell black ones and when they arrived I was extremely dissapointed!! These ones are way way thinner than others I own, VERY see through and have ZERO compression. Within 10 minutes of wearing them they were bagging out and becoming so loose and falling down. IM SO SAD!! The $100 leggings I had high hopes for compare to $10 ones you could get anywhere. So dissapointed lulu, especially with the price increase.

Love the look hate the pill
I honestly love the WU's in roll down form, but they just will not stay put. I switched to the Will Pant for the drawstring but I hate the look of the pockets and I can't seem to find a happy medium between the two.
On a separate note I find the Diamond Dot pills like crazy. I bought a pair of regular WU's in the diamond dot and they pilled everywhere almost instantly. I followed the washing instructions to the T too because I had heard people having this problem, really unfortunate since they were great for a to-and-from look.
[reference wise I flip between a 10 and 12 depending on the pant. wide hips small-ish waist]

I was very excited to order these pants in the pinkish/purple pattern but they are honestly paper thin. I know I have the right size as the fit is good, but as soon as I bend over even a little bit, you can see underwear. I have been so disappointed in Lulu lately.. I have been such a loyal customer, but I think I'll have to start hunting for a better quality brand.. something I never thought I'd say. Shame on you Lululemon for slacking on quality SO much.

are these sized incorrectly?
I bought these in the new purple and black pattern mix in a size 6 for my daughter who is a runner. She is 5'9" about 140 lbs with a runners lean build. She wears a 6 in all her lulu pants and tights so I thought ordering these in a 6 for her birthday would be a sure hit. However they are so small she can not get them on- measured against waist bands for her other running compression tights/pants/crops they are about 3" smaller...are these sized incorrectly? They look more like a 2 than a 6 and I am afraid to order her new ones just incase....not sure what to do other than return these...:(

nice but went back
I really LOVE the "pique cottony soft luon"fabric as they call it - it really isn't the same as normal luon or full on luon and very different from luxtreme - I think it feels exactly the same as some rulu items I have (from last year and from ivivva). So cozy and soft, but not really with any compression. I don't think the fabric naming system is clear and the store ladies though helpful don't seem to know either (It's embarrassing when I know more about the product lines...) so I needed to check them out in the store, but they didn't have so got them on line. Anyway, I wanted something different, so got the inkwell. They were super soft and comfy and not sheer but the color was sort of a dull dark blue that didn't match anything else lulu I have (lot of the nice grey and black..) so I returned them and instead got some size 14 ivivva rulu ones in herring bone that feel the same - and $64 vs. $102!! (http://www.ivivva.com/products/clothes-accessories/girls-pants/rhythmic-tight-rulu?cc=15293)
They fit the same as my other wunder unders in size 6 (5'4" 125lbs).
