wunder under challenge

wunder under challenge

Elim will be rotating between one pair of Wunder Under Pants and crops for an entire month! Do you think you could do this challenge?

Recently, our Online Content Specialist, Alana, and I were inspired by two blogs we came upon separately. Both sent a message of fiscally and environmentally responsible clothing habits. We are now able to buy organic this and sustainable that, but maybe it's also time to consider how we wear our clothing. Starting Jan. 1, 2010, I am challenging myself to dress for street and sweat with only two bottoms to choose from for the entire month. I will be alternating between the Wunder Under Pant and the Wunder Under Crop (washing in cold water and hanging to dry in between each wear). Each day you will see how one bottom takes me through my day AND for a daily athletic activity. Hello Sweat Once A Day Challenge!

Thank you to www.theuniformproject.com and tuesdaysmith.blogspot.com for the inspiration!

Salute to shopping responsibly and investing in versatile, functional pieces. Let the Wunder Under Challenge begin!

I am always wearing my yoga shorts or running gear over and over again, since all I do is sweat in it. Often a good rinse with water after the workout but before the clothes dry will be enough to keep them going for several wears.

Does this mean we can toss the jeans for good??

I LOVE that you are doing this Elim! I read an article in Alive magazine on sustainable decisions. You have inspired me to take on the wonderful wunder under challenge!

HI Elim
Wish I had a full length photo of my outfit I put together last minute for my friends wedding where I paired my dress and jacket with my black wonder under crops cause I arrived in tasmania (small island state south of mainland australia) and it was only 16C when Sydney has been 32C! Good luck for those special occasions this month!

i LOVE this challenge…though it wouldn’t be much of a challenge because i wear these every day anyway.

i’d tell you good luck, but it’s going to be a piece of cake with such AMAZING pants (or crops!)

Sooo easy! At least it would be in SoCal! My gf’s and I all practically live in leggings anyways. I love wearing my Wonder Unders and may just take on this challenge myself next month! Love seeing your outfits!

Hey Anjali,

The bag pictured is an early model of the Gym Essentials Bag, and is quite old. We no longer have it available, but our bag styles are constantly changing! Feel free to check out the website for the latest: http://shop.lululemon.com/products/category/women-bags?pagesize=All.

I did the same thing when I was in France. I travelled with my wunder unders and they were perfect as leggings on the plane, to wear with a baggy first over top and for running in the early cool mornings!

It is the perfect pair of pants! Honestly best purchase I have made.

Only downside was I got a defective pair so I was getting little holes in them that I had to mend. The good news is when I returned to Canada and took them in to my lululemon store they returned them and apologized and offered me a new pair no problem! Great customer service!

Thanks so if I did it for almost 2 months Elim you can totally do it!! Have fun!

Aww I just bought my first pair of black wunder unders and wanted to get some ideas on how to use the same pair for working out/daily wear from the WU challenge, but I see all the photos have been taken down :(
