strong and light, Swift fabric is woven to stand up to whatever we throw at it - we love this technical fabric for its no-bulk, no-nonsense performance
why we made this
We designed these pants to keep us comfortable on the way to and from the studio or the gym. Two-way stretch fabric gives us room to move, and a drawcord at the hem lets us cinch up the legs to turn these pants into crops when we need a little extra air.

I wrote a review for the Tall, but wanted to share my comments for the regular length as well. The original version of these pants (from maybe 3-4 years ago) was fantastic! I have 4 pairs, still wear them and they look great. They get 5 stars! Great fit, very comfortable.
Unfortunately, the newer version of these pants cost more, but seem to be of lesser quality. The waistband is my biggest disappointment. After a few washes/wears it rolls and bunches, causing an unflattering protrusion at the waistline. I did bring the pants to the store, was told they were defective and we switched them out, twice. Still with the same problem.
My older pants from years ago look better than the pant from just a few months ago! Cared for the same way (no fabric softener, no dryer).
Sadly, LuLu, whatever you did to the pants made them worse and I will not purchase anymore until you make the change back.

Studio pant II
Love these pants however after only 2 months they are falling apart and the waist band rolled up on me. I follow washing instructions on all my lulu clothing and was disappointed because they aren't cheap. They looked worn after washing them once.

comfy but rolly waistband
Lightweight and comfy. More flattering than sweatpants. After wearing a couple times the waistband started to roll. I've only ever hung them to try so its not the dryers fault.

I bought the yoga studio pant in February 2014 and by the beginning of June the waistband was already deteriorating. I liked the comfort factor but there is nothing comfortable about being stabbed in the stomach with little plastic pieces protruding from the band. I took VERY good care of these pants since I paid so much money for them and am completely disappointed that within a few months they became so unappealing. I spoke to some of the members that belong to the gym I work at who informed me off all the bad reviews...I never read the reviews before. You think LuluLemon...you think expensive...you think it's safe. One member has a pair of these that are so old her stripes are wearing off...but that's it...no other problems. I wish I had bought a pair from when the quality was good :(.

Great pants..with a few issues
I purchased these pants a few months ago because I kept seeing everyone wearing them and they looked nice and comfortable. I went to the store and tried them on and loved them! however after a few wears and not going in the dryer I notice some small pulls as well as the waist band is rolled down and now when I wear them all you can see is the waist band that is rolled. Very comfortable and light weight pants though

So disappointed : [
After years of buying big brand yoga pants (rhymes with Mikey) I finally decided to try out Lulu Lemon. I mean, after all I was spending quite a bit of money on the pants I have, so I figured what was a few more dollars for superior quality and style? So I finally drove the hour to my nearest Lulu Lemon and made my first purchase. I made a point of going to the store in person because I wanted to get my size right and really see everything up close and personal. Rather than the "typical" yoga pant I usually purchase I decided to switch it up and purchase the Studio II unlined pant. To be quite honest I am a nurse and they reminded me of very comfortable scrub pants. Why oh why did I do this to myself. I decided to purchase a size 6 after some of the sales girls said they fit me better than the 8's. So here is where the problems start...I cannot for the life of me get the darn waistband to stay up, it just keeps rolling down and needs to be fixed every couple of minutes. On top of that there is the beginning of some piling in between my legs. I have worn them 3 times!!!! That is just crazy for pants that cost this much! I washed them and hung dry hoping it would fix the waistband issue, it did not, only got worse. Maybe if I got the 8 these problems would not be happening but from he previous reviews I dare to say it probably would. And just for reference the 6's are not tight on me, I just like my clothes a little loose and preferred the roomier fit of the 8's. Back to "Mikey" I go.

Finally bought these pants and love them! Super comfy.... BUT today the ends of the waist drawstrings kept getting caught on the inseam and has left 6 noticeable snags!! Has this happened to anyone else??? I read on the reviews lululemon quality has gone downhill over the past few years. I've only worn them twice now and pretty upset over this considering the cost of the pants

Disappointed that other reviews came true
I saw my friend wearing her pants for months, finally asked and thought if they are the perfect pants they will be worth the money. In the end after reading many reviews and being nervous that the band might roll over like others mentioned this too has happened to mine. I haven't worn them more than a handful of times so they haven't even been washed and I'm so disappointed. I hear Lulu is very strict about their return policy and these are way past the 14 days. This along with a pair of shorts were my first Lulu purchase and not sure about future purchases based on this.

BEST PANT EVER
I FIRST SAW THESE PANTS WHEN VISITING WASHINGTON DC. I DIDN'T BUY THEM BECAUSE OF THE PRICE BUT I COULDN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT THEM. I CAME HOME AND BOUGHT MY FIRST PAIR (STUDIO II UNLINED) IN BLACK. I LIVE IN THEM. I BOUGHT A SECOND PAIR IN NAVY AND THEN A PAIR IN COBALT BLUE. THEY ARE THE MOST COMFY PANTS IN THE WORLD. THEY WEAR WELL, THEY WASH WELL AND THEY LOOK GREAT. I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THEM. PLEASE, MORE COLORS!!!!!!!!!!

Best pants ever... at first.
I have two pairs of these pants. The first I got probably 6 months ago... the second I got about three weeks ago. The first pair started pilling a lot in the hip area shortly after I got them. I cared for them exactly as directed... they've never even been in the dryer. They also started to get some little pulls on them--I have no idea how this happens. Then I got this new pair, and when I put them on for the second time, I realized that they were already pilling just like the first ones. I am so bummed because they truly are the most comfortable and flattering pants ever. This should not happen with clothing that costs this much money. So disappointed.
