I know I've been reviewing way too many seamless leggings lately, and here comes another one. I have Lululemon Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley 28" in the queue for a while and I keep pushing it out because I don't want to bore you with another miss of the seamless legging. You may remember the previous review of Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision 28". Many Lulu fans were as excited as me when it was released, but horrified by how sheer it was at the same time. Few months later, Lululemon introduced Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley 28" and Reveal 7/8 Tight Vortex 25". With the hope of Lululemon taking customers' feedback and addressing the see-through fabric of Reveal Tights Precision, I decided to give it another shot. Let's take a look of Lululemon Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley 28".
Details of Lululemon Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley 28" -
Top: Niyama Sol Sage Diamondback Sports Bra, XS/S (true to size).
Bottom: Lululemon Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley 28" , Evergreen, Size 4 (true to size).
The legging is made in Sri Lanka.
The hidden waistband pocket can hold an iPhone 6s (shown in top right picture).
Other than the four-way stretch fabric of Lululemon Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley 28" is made of, I can't provide other feedback in terms of the performance. As soon as I noticed it's see-through, I returned the legging back to the store. I didn't test it for any workout. That said, the material seems to be breathable and fast dry.
Overall, the quality is good except for the fact that it's see-through. The legging is constructed with flat locking seams. Most Lululemon leggings have lined gussets, but this one is unlined. Compared to the first released Reveal Tight Precision (the first edition), this one is more opaque but not 100%. It actually passed the bend-over test when I tried it on in store; however, it wasn't the case when I checked it again at home with much better lighting. You can see the shade of my underwear in pictures below when I was doing Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide-Legged Forward Fold) and Ananda Balasana (Happy Baby Pose).
When I took the legging back to the store, the educator asked me the reason for the return. I told her it was see-through. Instead of acknowledging the issue, she said I should consider wearing a size up. I was not very pleased by her "recommendation." I doubt by going one size up would make any difference.
It is true to size. I wear my normal size, size 4. I am 5'2" and there is extra fabric gathering around my ankle.
Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley is not as flattering as Reveal Tight Precision in my opinion. The elastic band digs into the skin and shows the muffin top. I also notice that the front rise of Reveal Tight Lattice Paisley is longer than Reveal Tight Precision, and the waistband sits above my navel.
I do like the softness and stretchiness of the fabric, but not so much of the waistband. It is too high rise and the encased elastic band digs into my waist.
I am done with Lululemon Reveal Tights for now until they are able to make them 100% opaque. That said, I do like the soft and four-way stretch material, but I can't accept a see-through yoga pant. The legging is true to size, but it's not the most flattering pair I've tried. In addition, the front rise is too long for me and the elastic band digs into the skin causing discomfort.
