I’ve been a big fan of Lululemon’s Wunder Under crops and pants ever since I was reintroduced to yoga over two years ago. Although pricey, they are worth every penny for a great workout pant. Wearing Wunder Unders make me feel like Wonder Woman, and here are a few reasons why:
Fit: Perhaps my first thoughts when trying on a pair of workout pants should be quality or price, but I am more concerned with how I look in my workout gear. In the dressing room, I first take a peek at my booty to make sure it looks its best. Then I do a few squats to test comfort and stretchability. Next, I jog in place to test jiggle. Lastly, I perform the bend-over trick to ensure the fabric won’t be showing my pink panties during a forward fold. Wunder Unders pass every time!
The other great thing about the fit of Wunder Unders is the size availability. I often struggle with pants that are only offered in small, medium or large – women’s bodies are so much more diverse than that! Besides, who wants to settle for a pant that isn’t quite the right fit and produces the baggy britches look in the seat after a workout? Wunder Unders come in sizes 2-12 so your workout pants feel custom fit! No baggy britches in these babies!
Quality and construction: The fabric used to construct the magnificent Wunder Under is called Luon®. It’s breathable, moisture wicking, chafe resistant and stretchy in all the right places. This is especially important for those yogis who enjoy a hot vinyasa class – the fabric will absorb sweat without the feeling of your pants drooping near your caboose or weighing you down during your flow. Another plus: the wide waistband covers any tummy pooch!
Function: There is a reason why the simple design of the Wunder Under is so wonderful. These are no fuss pants that are fitted from your waist to ankle (or mid-calf if you opt for the crops), which allows you to easily check your alignment throughout your practice. The soft waistband won’t dig into your tummy when you bend over and the Luon® allows freedom and flexibility as you flow.
Wunder Unders are the perfect workout pant for me and they have multiple purposes beyond my yoga mat. They are great pants to wear when traveling, running errands around town, they look cute with a tunic and ballet flats or boots and they’re perfect to wear on those no fuss-I feel bloated-nothing looks cute-just wanna be comfy days!
P.S. Dear Santa, I would like another pair of Wunder Unders for Christmas!
Peace. Love. Namaste.
