Product Review (Fitness): Lululemon's Wunder Under Crop

Well, I did it.

I caved and purchased a pair of Lululemon's Wunder Under Crops. I have heard other bloggers rave about their wunder unders and how they won't wear anything else.

If you remember from my favorite things post, I typically buy my workout clothes from Target and I rarely spend a lot of money on them, so these were definitely an investment.


Initial Reaction
My first thought was, o-m-g I love these. They are super soft, great length (I wanted some that are longer), and great range of motion without feeling restrictive.
After walking around in them for a bit I was unsure about the waistband. It almost makes me feel like I have somewhat of a 'muffin top.' But, not so bad that I don't like them. I think they are pretty flattering in the leg area.

How did they hold up during RIPPED?
At first they were sliding down at bit at the waist, but once I got nice and sweaty they seemed to hold up just fine. Again, the range of motion in the legs was awesome. And sooo soft.

Yoga?
Stay tuned...

Oh Hi, Levi.
Sizing?
I followed their directions and measured myself and ordered the size according to their size chart. It was actually a size or two bigger than what I wear in jeans.

Cons?
I am a little surprised at how thin they are. They almost seem too much like 'leggings' and not workout pants.

Would you recommend them?
I've only worn them today, so from my initial experience, yes I would recommend them.

Are they worth the price?
Only time will tell with this question. I don't mind spending money on what I consider an 'investment' piece, but only if it holds up over time. I have read several reviews on the Lululemon website and while some people have had problems with 'pilling,' etc., Lululemon seems to be really great about replacing or repairing items.

Do you own any Lululemon items? Do you like them?
