I got to try on the Nulux Speed Wunder Tights and Energy Bra today and really liked them. People seemed to have been at a loss to explain exactly how the Nulux fabric feels but I thought they felt similar to the super silky, stretchy luxtreme that is found on wee space luxtreme bottoms except thicker. I don't think the material feels at all like the Nulu that is found in the Aligns - it's pure luxtreme, in a super silky and stretchy form. I have read many reports of the Marbled Mix colorway being sheer but they had good coverage for me and I made sure to check in a few of the mirrors out on the floor. I was wearing nude underwear but I never saw the edges or outline of my underwear. The ultimate test would be to take them home and check in outside light but I've definitely been able to tell sheerness in the changing room mirrors before. The material was nicely matte and provided good coverage for cellulite, too. I was tempted to get them since they felt really nice and I love trying new fabrics but I just don't care for the beige (or pale gray?) in this print, which makes them seem a bit dingy and throws me for a loop when it comes to pairing with tops. For $128 I really need to love the print to pay that kind of money. I would definitely considering picking them up at an attractive markdown price.

For me, this swirly pattern make everyone's legs look bigger. I'm already bottom heavy, so don't need anything to accent it. The colors are eh too.

Just my few cents- full review is gonna be on lulu site...got my order of nulu pants, speeds in Florence and manifesto, and paisley high times. Keeping high times and manifesto speeds. LOVE. High times are silky luxtreme with a smart print that even stretched only looks more antique and busy print makes them not sheer...a tad longer than normal high times (or fabric stretchier?). The manifesto speeds satisfy my love for scripts, stripes, and monochromatic perfection- super slimming...
Now what goes back- Florence speeds are just ok, not slimming by any means...,nulu pants are disappointing- see thru while standing, print is fattening, and feel is too similar to regular luxtreme to pay a premium price....all IMHO, no offence to previous reviews...

@ anon 10:00 am - I got my Paisley WUCs today and love them. I could see the shadow of my black underwear when I bent over but I'm sure they'll be fine with nude since, like you say, the print is busy. I agree about not paying extra for the nulux fabric. It's nice but I am really liking the 69/31 blend of full on luxtreme, which has some compression to it unlike nulux.

The Manifesto pinstripe speeds are super cute. I totally love those.

Ahhh I ordered those manifesto stripe speeds . .glad to hear they ate cute....I ordered florescent ones too....may trade for the wups....but I think they are unique and may be keepers. I loved the paisley wuc on you llm and am very tempted to get them....maybe Tuesday. Today's wmtm was horrid so I tend to go back and look at other items from past uploads. Love your blog and try ons

I love the speed wunder marble pants and I did not not find them sheer on. I ended buying them but I will keep tags on to be sure. It's so weird though that they have such mixed reviews. Makes me nervous!!

Amoy 5:52. I'm with you. I ordered them and did not find them to be shear at all. I also am sitting on them as I'm not sure they are worth the price even though I really like the feel of them.

I tried these on with blue panties on to see how sheer they were. Just standing in the change room was fine but when I did the bend over test you could see the blue underneath the pants. They were also too long for me but that's why they hem. I wasn't crazy about them as pants but loved them as Speed Shorts

I tried on the SW marble pants, and they were not sheer on me. Maybe because I had Zobha flesh coloured panties on? Love the pattern, but, although I have skinny legs, they looked 20 pounds heavier. I am not going to buy a first generation invention, it looks like trouble to me. Especially for that nicely inflated price...

Just out of curiosity went to one of my local stores to check out these pants. Guess what they are completely sold out in all sizes. They had some kind of event with one of the cross fit gyms which gives participants 20% off . With 20% off sheerness wasn't an issue I guess

I admittedly didn't try these on, but I picked them up in the store this weekend and ran my hand on the inside to feel the fabric, I could see my hand through the fabric and though "erm, better not". Anything that is that sheer will not get my money, especially when there are old reliable pants like pace rivals priced for much less.

nulux is slippery and bathing suit like for those of you who are interested. It is not sheer. The energy bra in this material is pretty amazing, I can see it being good for super hot classes or for those who do a lot of sweaty cardio.

I haven't bought an energy bra in quit a while so I might drop some $$ for this one, it also looks like there is a bit more coverage on top for those who do not like showing off cleavage at the gym.

Nulu is completely different than nulux. You might want to consider editing your review

@Amanda - I know but I had read other try on reports that say Nulux felt like Nulu except silkier. That is why I mention Nulu in my review.
