Were you as excited as me when seeing these cuties, Reveal Tight Precision 25" and Reveal Bra Precision, on Lululemon's website this January? They were so popular and sold out within days though Lululemon re-stocked them few times. That said, I was very disappointed by how transparent Reveal Tight Precision 25" was.

After trying Reveal Tight Precision 25", the excitement soon turned into disappointment. It got to be one of the most see-through leggings I've ever tried. Regardless what style and color of the underwear I tired, it was totally see-through. I ended up returning it to the store and didn't test its performance. Hence, I am not able to provide the rating and full review this week.
Since I've never worn the legging for any exercise, I can't comment on its performance. That said, the fabric is soft, medium to low compression and four-way stretch, which would be great for yoga if it wasn't see-through.
I haven't been so disappointed by Lululemon for years. Ever since they recalled the see-through yoga pants in 2013, the quality has been greatly improved. Well, Reveal Tight Precision 25" is the exception. It is transparent and fails the squat test. The fabric is lightweight, but not thin per se. When it's stretched out, it is sheer. Regardless the color of the underwear I wear, I can clearly see the panty when bending over in downward facing dog and standing forward fold.
It is true to size and size 4 hugs perfectly on me. It is flattering. The laser cut details create a leggy look. The high waistband provides decent support and coverage.
The fabric is soft and very stretchy, and the seamless construction adds extra comfort. Although there is a encased elastic band, it doesn't' cause discomfort, nor does it pinch the skin.
There is no way for me to keep a see-through legging. Although I returned Reveal Tight Precision 25", Reveal Bra Precision is a keeper. As I mentioned earlier, I like the softness and elasticity of the material. Moreover, the racerback cut of Reveal Bra Precision offers great support for movement. It it true to size and I wear a size 4. I highly recommend Reveal Bra Precision.
I really wanted to keep Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision 25", but who would pay $118 for a pair of see-through legging? Even though the fabric is soft and four-way stretch, and the high waistband provides good coverage, it fails the bend-over test. What a deal breaker! On the other hand, Reveal Bra Precision is a keeper. The racerback cut provides good support for full range of movement, and the seamless construction adds comfort and minimizes chafing.
