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.

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.

Pockets Stick Out Funny
I purchased these pants because they are comfy and I love the light weight of the pant. I bought Black and Dune . I could have purchased a size 6, but I got the size 8 so I would have plenty of room. I don't recall noticing this when I tried them on in the store, because if I had, I never would have purchased them. After washing, the pockets seem to stick out funny on the sides, making them unflattering from both the front and the back. Should I have gone up more than 1 size? Does anyone else have this problem?? I am going to have to sew the pockets down at least partially, to get rid of this problem, otherwise I will never wear them. I just looked at all the photos online that Lululemon shows in their advertising of this Basic Pant and....the models either have their hand in the pocket or they have their arm resting tight against their side, whether its a front view or a back view. Is this intentional? So that you can't see the pockets stick out? Am curious if anyone else noticed this? If I wear the pants up higher, there is a camel toe , and if I wear them lower, the pockets stick out more. I am low in the rise and have small hips. Humm...Maybe I should have purchased a size 10...2 sizes up.

looks great at first - doesn't last :(
I'm very disapointed!!! I got a pair and loved the look and feel at first. I figured that Lulu would have fixed the issues from the riviews (isn't that why we pay so much?). But no, same problem, the material is fuzing and looks allot older than it is. and the elastic is bulking at the waist making them very unflattering - I took such good care of these pants because they cost soo much! but the way they are deteriorating not Worth the buy! (waste of $$) Very disapointed in this product. Initially I wanted to get more colors, but if its to deteriorate like that, not worth it.
I don't recomend this purchase unless the price is revised, they do not last! :( Lululemon, please make some ajustments if you want to keep the reputation. Thank you for reading. sorry for venting

Waist band issues
Love these pants, have them in capri and full length. But I unfortunately have had nothing but problems with the capris :( Same problem as everyone else has reported with the waist band folding down. The waist band problem is not only uncomfortable, but it's also unflattering. I can't wear a fitted shirt with them, without having a bulge where the waist band sits. I bought my first pair of capri's had the issue, contacted Lululemon, they allowed me to exchange them for another pair, but the same thing has happened to my second pair too. Super disappointed!

If heaven were a pair of pants...
If you could wear air, this is what it would feel like. These pants are soo light and airy (but not sheer at all!) that it basically feels like you're not even wearing pants!
I wear these over my gym shorts or just day to day and I've had NO problems. The fabric is great and everybody who is complaining about these must be wearing the wrong size or washing them wrong because I have not had one single problem, and can't wait to buy more.
I would recommend buying them in-store depending on how you like them to fit. I am usually a size 4 and the 4's fit fine but I prefer the 2's because they fit slimmer. Can't wait to get some lined ones for the winter :)

Love at first sight and now SO DISAPPOINTED!
I have recently purchased a few lulu items including the inspire crops and then the studio pants unlined (crop). My sister is an AVID fan and I went to try them on. They were sooooo comfortable! I was in love. Wore them right away! Loved them the first few times I wore them. Then I noticed the pilling. I washed them in cold water on delicate and I hang all of my laundry. Two washes they lasted. I have only had them for 6 weeks. So ridiculous! I bought them in the store and noticed they went on "we made too much" a week later. I didn't even care that I paid full price because they were worth it. I told everyone how unbelievable they were. Now I want to show them what happens to $100 pants after two washes. I will definitely think twice before buying anything else. If the quality does not stand up, why bother:( I have to travel an hour to the nearest store. So ridiculous.

Bought these pants despite the many reviews about poor quality/waist band problems and I am happy to report that they are amazing. After 3 months and heavy wear, no signs of rolling. These pants are extremely comfortable, and look great. I will be ordering more colours for sure!

Love at first wear but after, no love...
I loved these the first time I wore them but after the first wash (gentle cycle and hang dry) the hem started coming out and there was a pull in the fabric. I agree with the other people that the fabric quality seems to be cheap. For the price, I expect them to wash and wear well! Especially after the FIRST wash. These were going to be my go to pant to wear over my cycling short before teaching but now....nope!

A few years ago, I purchased the studio pant with a liner and absolutely loved them!! Being short, it?s hard to find a track type pant that is flattering and these are, even after hemming. Loving the lined pant so much, I decided to purchase 2 pairs of the unlined pant for the warmer weather and I feel as though I wasted a lot of money. After a few wears, the waistband started to roll/fold, which gave them a very cheap/worn look. It should also be noted, that I followed the proper cleaning instructions. As a yoga teacher and phys-ed teacher, I'm in athletic clothing all the time and I feel as though I could have purchased 4 pants elsewhere for the price of these two and would have been much happier!

Waistband shouldn't b folding for high price!!
Like other reviewers have mentioned, the elast in the waistband folds and bunches up! VERY ANNOYING!!! And it makes the pant look cheap and u can see the "rolling " under tee shirts. I own 10 pair all in different colors and 4 of the 10 pair are folding!?...? Why? I "baby" my clothes and these pants as well, washing in cold and always hang to dry, why are some of my pants "falling" apart and looking shabby? I only purchase these pants because I like the overall FIT and the colors are fun certainly not because they are "lululemon! I would love to find these pants in another brand for cheaper. overall these pants are indeed overrated and definitely overpriced!! The quality control is suffering in these pants and that NEEDS to be addressed ... Made in China, say no more....? Having said that, please bring in more bright colors such as PINK/S and Orange and Kelly green...paying better attention to quality and craftsmanship! Thanks
