I firmly believe that busy moms all over the country are single-handedly keeping Lululemon in business. This advice may not apply if you’re dropping off the kids wearing yoga or running pants.
However, if you are actually going to work out, listen up. You need to know how to find your Lululemon leggings and pant size.

Why the Right Size Is Important
I have a pair of Wunder Under pants that I do not like wearing to yoga or boot camp. The reason is that if I bend over, they become a little bit see-through.
I bought the size that fit best in the dressing room, which was a big mistake, and I hear I’m not the only one who makes it.
Lululemon Pant Fit Expert Rule of Thumb
On my last visit to Lululemon La Jolla, I was having trouble selecting a style of pants, because I thought I should branch out into something I don’t own.
I talked about my see-through concerns, and the pant fit expert said this is how you determine if your pants are the right size.
- Try pants on in good light. The dressing rooms don’t always provide the best light so be brave and go out to the main mirror.
- Squat like a frog, as low as you can go.
- Look at your rear in the mirror. If you can see the white Lululemon tag through the pants, or anything else, your pants are too tight. Go up a size or two, even if the length isn’t quite right. Lululemon can alter the length for you.
We all hate wearing a size larger than we have to but spare your fellow workout mates the discomfort of seeing what’s not supposed to be seen.
Due to the way I’m built, for nothing to be seen, I have to wear a size 8 or 10 Wunder Under versus a size 6. In the end, I decided to stick with my beloved Groove pants which are looser fitting around the hips and thighs.
The pant fit expert suggested it is okay to buy pants that are out of my comfort zone because I would get used to them.
Collections Are Meant to Be Mixed and Matched
Each Lululemon collection is meant to be mixed and matched. I bought a darling pink and white striped jacket and wanted the pink workout shirt to match. The sales associate agreed that the top was too much pink for me. She handed me the same top in purple and said, so what if it doesn’t match perfectly. She was totally right.
Now, go check your pants.
