I saw these pants in my store and I just had to try them on because I’m all about loud prints! The print is so bright and fun in person! Unfortunately, I put them on and immediately noticed that the waistband was not secure (too loose) on me. I saw a few reviews online that said that people were having problems with slippage and having to pull up their pants during physical activities. I can definitely see myself having the same problem, which is ultimately why I chose to leave these at the store.
I did also want to let you know that I also found that these were sheer on me. Now, maybe it’s also because my body is just not made for these pants, but I did find them to be sheer in a deep bend. To be honest, it wasn’t that bad but I’m not the only person who thought that they were a little sheer as there was also one other reviewer who tried these and expressed a similar opinion. Her three-star review is pictured below. Again, it wasn’t that bad, and the main reason I left them there was the waistband, but I just thought I would let you know.
I also took pictures 🙂
Here is a photo of the hang tag and the tear-out tag. I will say that I love that they’re 83% Nylon and 17% Lycra, that’s great. The issue for me is the thinness of the fabric. I will also say that it’s great that they’re lined in light blue instead of white. Here’s the thing: I’m not paying $128 for even just mildly sheer pants. Remember when Print Fullux Wunder Unders were $92? LuluAddict commented on that in a post about pricing increases in 2014.
She was 100% right! I mean, I wasn’t shocked that Lululemon was raising their prices (because after all the scandals, why not double down?), but I was pretty shocked about how fast the prices were going up at the time that she made that post, and now, looking back on it… Well, I’m not surprised that she was right that the Fullux Wunder Unders increased in price- I mean, we all knew that was coming!- But I AM SHOCKED that they’ve gone from $92 to $128 in less than 3 years. I’m seriously thinking to myself, that is a price increase of 39%!
At the end of the day, I don’t like the price hikes, but I would be happy to pay more if there was an increase in the quality. If there isn’t, it is just a disappointment.
Anyways, here’s a photo of me in the pants, and I really do love the print, then a photo of the slight amount of sheerness that I experienced. I see the rip-out tag, do you?
At the end of the day, whether you buy these or not is a personal choice, and I maintain that the principal reason I didn’t pick these up is the waistband, but the sheerness is an issue too- especially considering the price. What do you think? Will you get these pants? Is the waistband an issue for you? Did you experience any sheerness? How have you felt about the price increases?
