Love 'em Hate 'em
I was so excited to find these pants in this fabulous material! I bought a pair of shorts years ago in a similar fabric and they are still my fav shorts today.
I bought size 4, my regular size & the fit is great. I ordered these online so didn't try them on. Going up a size would work if you want things a bit more roomy.
Pockets - just weird. They are loose inside the pant, not attached like a regular pocket. So they move around, bunch up... and you can see the outline through the pant. Unless you smooth them out just right, they stick out at the sides.
The waist has a wide elastic inside. Unless I remain standing upright, the waistband twists/bends and sticks out as soon as I move. Very odd looking. Annoying to have to keep fixing it.
Today I put them on after work and been sitting at my pc. Took the sale tag off, but not the inside tag. I so want to love these pants. I can deal with the pockets... could possibly just remove them. But I don't know if I can deal with the waist.

Wanted to love so bad..
I LOVE modal and Vitasea. These are fabrics that I constantly keep my eyes open for and will buy almost anything made out of and at least give it a shot. Well, as usual the fabric on these is AMAZING, but they need to be a heavier weight maybe for the cut or something, not quite sure what. Also, I agree that the pockets show too much (hence the need for heavier fabric or else maybe just shorter/smaller/differently made pockets...not sure the solution exactly, I'm not a designer but the pockets don't work right). I saw some comments about them having a saggy butt, well for me that is a NOT a problem; I've got TONS of booty and they looked great there. My problem other than the butt was that they hit me in a weird place length wise as of course I am way shorter than the model and the elastic on the ankle was too tight and uncomfortable on my ankle/calf. Also the waistband kind of wanted to twist up too, and that was just trying them on in my house; didn't even actually wear them. So, that combined with the pockets was just too much to deal with for $88 sweatpants. But I am not going to lie, they are so soft and comfy it was hard to take them back. I am hoping they make something like last year's Rejuvenate Sweat Pant in the Modal fabric. That cut with that fabric would be an awesome combo. Those sweats were casual yet flattering for wearing around town (even for me and I never wear slimmer leg pants like that) and just super great with cute zipper pocket details and no tight elastic to crush you anywhere!!

I'm pretty sure theses pants were made with clouds. I wasn't going to buy them because $88 for a pair of regular looking sweatpants seemed a little unreasonable to be, but when I tried them on I never wanted to take them off. I tried on a size 4- my regular size in lulu pants because I like to have a good amount of wiggle room- and they fit, but were a little too tight for my liking. Also, the elastic at the ankle was so tight that I could barely fit my finger between my ankle and the elastic. I went up to a size 6 and they were perfect. At my local store they had a really pretty green color that I ended up purchasing.

I almost didn't try these on, but then I touched the fabric and couldn't resist. Yes, they are pricey, but I think they're worth the splurge because I know I'll get a ton of wear out of them. They're nice enough to wear while running errands and cozy enough to lounge and sleep in. The blue is a really lovely color. I did size up one size to an 8 - my usual 6 would have been too snug in the waistband.

Nothing More Than Glorified Sweatpants
I loved these pants! They were TTS, the fabric was perfect, the fit amazing. That said, they are nothing more than a pair of sweatpants (which I could find for half as much) and I could not justify the steep price tag. If they are offered in WMTM, I would consider reordering. They are going back.

The pockets ruin these pants
I loved the fabric and the color. I was looking for a slim cut, lightweight sweatpant and these seemed like they would fit the bill. When I put them on the huge, nude color fabric pockets took up my entire upper thigh and bunched up, very unattractive. Please make these without the pockets.

BEST PANTS EVER
I have several styles of lululemon's pants but these were by far the best purchase I have ever made!
After seeing them online I was hesitate to order them, I barely own 1 pair of sweatpants but I love the light fabric of lululemon so I thought I might try.
I went to the store and they had them, after several trips around the store I decided to just ' try them on'
I DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE THEM OFF!
They are extremely light, breathable and flexible. They are very flattering and shorts can be worn underneath them easily.
The only thing that is strange is the waistband twists and sticks out which makes it look a bit funny, but they are so comfy that I doesn't matter.
I'm 5'5 about 135 with an athletic build and I purchased a size 6

These pants are incredible! So super soft and so comfy. The pockets are huge (which is awesome in a woman's pant, I can actually fit my phone in them for once) and though people are complaining about the tone of the pockets; I absolutely love them. These are a must buy! Can't wait for the forest green ones again!

When I first saw these come out, I looked at them briefly and decided to pass, as I have another lulu french terry sweatpant in a light color.
I was in the store today and saw the short on my way to the fitting room. When I went to touch the fabric, I could not belief how fabulous it felt...silky soft. Next thing you know, I had the pant on thanks to the awesome staff.
These aren't your regular cotton french terry. The fine Modal yarn is what gives this light weight, incredibly comfortable pant the soft feel and the great fit it has. They drape (for lack of a better word) every so gently for a fantastic look and fit.
I'll be wearing these on the cross country red eye this week and bring the shorts too. Will be perfect at the beach.

Best track pants!
Exactly what. I was looking for! Fit was true to size and flattering. Fit as seen in photo.
Blue colour is great...light enough colour for summer and perfect with tank top or T. I never wear track pants outside of the house but might be tempted with these for errands, paired with a cute workout tank :)
