Are lululemon leggings and underwear worth the premium?

Always wondered if it's worth the premium. I mean nylon is nylon and spandex is spandex right?

Hard to find men's legging with pockets. If you like to wear them without any top layer (shorts, pants) then these are for you. The Surge Tights have an under cover protection around your private areas to prevent people from seeing too much when you do your down dog pose. What people don't realize at first is Lululemon is light years ahead of their competitors in terms of stretch technology, features and design concept. Most people will just look at the price tag and will never give it a try. Overall I'm happy with my Lululemon tights. Also I like that their Tights and jogger pants as well make my bubble butt look more bubbly while brands like Under Armour and Nike not so much. Hehe.

My answer is no as I have never bought or worn Lululemon clothing.

Not since Lululemon got rid of low rise, or even mid rise leggings.

The original Groove pant and Skinny Groove pant, followed by the Wunder Unders were great, but as time has evolved the quality has gone down.

I've tried a lot of leggings, and surprisingly, these remind me of the ORIGINAL Groove pant. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LBE ... UTF8&psc=1

^love the Hanes leggings and my go to when lounging around at home now.

I loved the luon fabric, but Lululemon's corporate values are no longer in sync with mine and their products are generally garbage these days, especially for the price.

Yes, they last a very long time (just be sure to wash cold water, low cycle.. hang/lay flat to dry) as high heat can break down fabrics quicker. I have items from 2010-2015 that are still in great condition and almost new.

Omg, this! I hate the trend of high-rise everything. It's so unflattering and uncomfortable on my body type. I def prefer the mid-rise. Those are slim pickings these days indeed.

I am pretty sure the premium price is part of their marketing strategy.

Unfortunately, the answer for me is yes, the leggings are worth the premium. Performance and aesthetic-wise. For yoga, running, spinning, HIIT, barre etc. Lulu has way more frequent normal sales and wmtm sales now so I would start there. Plus, they have different fabrics and styles. You have to find what works best for you. I don't like all of them.

Other brands I wear or have worn: nike, alo, uniqlo, gap, adidas, random yoga brands sold in yoga studios, under armour.
