I’ve been wanting a pair of glossy black leggings. I have an Alo glossy black tight in my cart and eventually I’ll have to pull the trigger. Especially, because things keep selling out. In any event, when I saw the Lululemon upload with the Wunder Under Sheen, I was very excited. I had to go in and see it in person.
I liked the Lululemon version with the different paneling. The side and back is matte black. The sheen is only in the front. The front seams around the legs were flattering and added a nice design detail. I wasn’t sure if I would like the fact that the curve around the knee came in so much but when I tried it on, I liked it. The bottom of the tight is a ribbed mesh. I really liked that part of the tight. The ribbed mesh gave more texture to the tight. I felt the length of the tight was slightly shorter than the other WUs I have. They were definitely full length but I felt there was less bunching around the ankles. My favorite thing about this tight was the edgy style. These are TTS.
While writing this review and looking at my pictures, I can’t tell if the tight might be ever so slightly sheer. Or it could just be that my undies were not laying flat and what I’m seeing is VPL. You decide. Based on the pictures, I’d say it was a 9.5/10 in opacity. When I tried them on and stepped out of the fitting room in the bright sunlight, I didn’t notice they were sheer at all. The front picture isn’t so flattering (something about the shadows) but I wanted you to see that the sheen paneling was also on the waistband. Because it’s a black tight, it’s hard to see the contrast without proper lighting and camera. But the in-store photos are accurate in it’s depiction of the tight.
Now my dilemma is deciding if I want all around glossy or the glossy front paneling. I’ll probably get both and do a side by side comparison.
