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.

Out of characteristics!!
I'm a huge fan of Lululemon and they have the most comfortable workout clothes! My daughter and I love to shop there but I'm not happy at all with this specific purchase of the Studio Pants II. My husband paid $108 a few month ago and on my 5th wear I noticed a tear on the right pocket. The waistband has rolled out in a couple of places and I've washed them only with cold water and air dried them. I'm now stuck with a pair of lulu's that I cannot use. Very disappointed.

love these pants, with one major exception
I'm a huge Lululemon fan and love the quality of their products so much, that I don't even look at the competition. I wear Lululemon clothes everyday and I've never had any issues with the fit or quality, until now. I have older versions of these pants and I'm so in love with them that I purchased another pair about a month ago. The problem is the waistband has been changed and seems more flimsy. Unfortunately, it rolls out in several places and creates unflattering lumps/rolls through your shirt. Please bring back the old waistband! Now I'm stuck with a $108.00 pair of pants that I won't wear again and they are past the return date.
BTW, I wash all my Lulu clothes separately on cold delicate, and line dry.

Used to love these pants
I have these in black in a size six from a few years ago and I love them!!! I also have them in green and Capri length and have been very happy. They would be even better if they were a bit shorter as even with the drawstring they still drag a bit. I am 5' 5' and 135 lbs. I ordered them in plum as I love the color but they are way roomier than my other pairs. Generally wider all over but the waist fits good so they must have altered the fit. Don't love the new changes as the older style was a lot more slimming.

Not great fit
I'm 5'7" and these pants drag the ground for me. They have an awkward amount of fabric on the bottom so if you use the drawstring, they balloon out and brush together while you walk. Would be much better with about 3" less fabric on each ankle. Reading the other reviews, I have not had any wasteband issues yet, however I have not yet washed them. Will update review after a few wears. Still, without any quality issues, I would not recommend this style unless you are at least 5'9

Loose threads on second wear!!!
These pants are so comfortable. I love them! The downfall? Unravelling/unlooping threading on the sides. I'm hours away from the nearest store and have already exchanged them once. I'm quite upset that pants that I paid $100+ for and haven't even washed yet are starting to fall apart! Also, the sizing is strange to me. I'm a 6 in tops, so I ordered a 6 originally and they fell off. I exchanged them for a 4 and they're even too big.

love the length
I really like the regular length, especially when paired with chucks or fliip-flops. Not so much material at the bottom makes them not so bulky on us shorter girls! These pants are a staple in my closet!

Love, but poor quality?
I bought these pants in the grey color and absolutely loved them so I bought another pair in the black color. After less than 10 wears the new black pair that I bought has elastic fibers coming out of the waistband that constantly poke my skin. It hurts! I can't even wear this pair anymore, which totally stinks. My grey pair never did this even after 1000 wears and washes. Super disappointing :-(

bring back the original waistband!
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.
