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've been waiting for these
I have been holding out on buying these for a while now. I don't know what I was waiting on. I found the need for comfy pants on weekends that weren't skin tight--something that looked slightly more professional but still allowed me to move freely. I also wanted some pockets. These are just that. I also bought a pair for my sister who had recently given birth. She wanted cozy pants that didn't look like she was about to go work out all the time. The material is great for all sorts of activities-if they get wet they dry quickly and it's light and airy even for hot and humid days. Lastly there is enough room underneath that if it is a cold day, you could layer in some wunder unders without feeling too stuffy.

Very Comfy Terrible waist band
The pants design from the waist band down are by far my favorite.
The waist band is terrible I own Several pairs in these
grey, black, inkwell, purple, Etc.
I have only had one pair that the waist band has not bunched up and become bulky yet.
I treat these with care as lululemon states to.
these pants are NOT worth what they are asking for because of this terrible issue.
they need to Fix the poor Qualiity of this waist band then they would be the most perfect pants a girl could ask for. Wish I could get my money back with these problems or better replacements ones.

Love the pants but waistband needs improvement
I have these pants and love them for lounging around. They are not too tight and look good on. After wearing them and washing them a few times the waistband began to roll down on on side and I am unable to flatten it back out. I am disappointed with how the waistband rolls considering the pants are over 100 dollars. Now when I wear them with a tight shirt , it appears to be bulky on one side

Wanted a wide leg, kick it around pant. These are PERFECT! super comfy and lightweight (I got the unlined pair so they'll transition well to spring & summer). I'm right in between regular & tall but these in regular hit the right length w/o "flooding" when I sit. I have yet to wash them so I can't comment on what other reviewers have noted. I'm not thrilled with the exposed tie waist (other tie waist styles have showed the "bow" under shirts) but this style is not too bad - you actually can barely see it.

Old style fits much better. CS unhelpful :(
I have been wearing Lulu clothing for a long time and have always been happy with their products, quality, and fit. This is the first time I have encountered a problem. Three weeks ago I purchased a pair of the unlined Studio Dance pants in gray from my local store. I LOVED them right away - they were exactly what I was wanting, a comfy pair of pants, to wear out and about. I wore them three times, and then washed them (alone in the wash). They came out with pilling on the stretchy fabric that borders the pocket on one side. I took them back to the store and they exchanged them for a new pair (same color and size) but the sales lady noted that there was a different color draw string. When I got home, I put them on and realized the new ones fit much different. I called the store. Both the sales lady looked and said the ones I had returned were the "old style" that was some how left in their inventory....
The "new style" seems thinner, and I am noticing static cling (like many of the other reviews are saying). The waist band is higher on the new style and while I have not had it rolling yet, it is not as comfortable as the old. Finally, the stretchy back panel on the rear below the waist band seems much more prominent on the new model and it not as comfortable and in my opinion does not look as good.
After giving my new pair a try and wearing them several times, reading the reviews and generally being unhappy with the fit of my "new" $100+ pants, I called Customer Service to see if I could get the old style back (my local store did not have any more. Customer Service, although nice, was generally unhelpful and unapologetic that I've already had one defective pair and one pair that does not fit well. She suggested I go to Lulu's blog and state my opinions and hopefully they will bring back the old style. She agreed the back panel was bigger and the waist band was higher, but said the fabric was not thinner - I disagree (no static cling on my first pair).
I do love the idea of these pants (hence the two stars) and the shape of them. I do not mind paying Lululemons high prices if I know I am getting a quality items, with a good fit and with durable fabric.

Price doesn't match quality
Got these pants last month, after I wash them twice the waist band stretch and folds over. I follow the washing instructions provided by Lululemon. I called lululemon and they didn't provide a resolution.

I bought these in store and I love the light feel of the pant and I've always loved how they look and have wanted a pair for a long time and I am very sad disappointed to say I am very dissatisfied- for the price you pay for these they should be worth it.. the band on mine have folded and I haven't been able to get it back what so ever. I am now seeing reviewing other reviews this issue isn't something that is uncommon so this is what makes me angry. I still give these pants two stars for the fact I love how they look. but that's IT!

Best pants EVER.
I have both the lined and unlined and I love both of them! The unlined are great for when its a little warmer, and if its cold I just wear pants under them. They are super flattering and super comfy. Love having "fancy" sweatpants! :)
