a sweat-wicking, four-way stretch fabric that's cool to the touch and fits like a second skin - this technical fabric offers support and smooth, low-friction performance
lightweight, stretchy and moisture-wicking, this fabric holds you in and breathes at the same time, making it perfect for all kinds of sweaty business
why we made this
When we're crunching, twisting and planking our way to abs of steel, we don't want our workout wear getting in the way. We made these breathable, zipperless crops to be comfortable when we're feeling the burn, and added deep side pockets that fit our phone so we can focus on Eye of the Tiger.

Uncomfortable but very light
I bought a pair of the Cut The Crop and went for a bigger size since they are a tighter fit. I'm usually a size 4-6 in Lulu gear so I opted for the size 8. The fit around my waist was weird since they were sort of baggy on the waist, but super tight throughout the leg. I decided to give it a try and ran in them twice. I ended up pulling up my pants during both of my 6km runs, which was awkward. I have to admit that they are very light and stretchy but they felt slimy.
What really drew my attention was the cellphone side-pocket and it totally fit my Nexus 5. I felt that I wasted my money on these pants. I guess it's back to the drawing board. :(

Love the fit and feel! My new favorite crops.
I don't know why this crop got such low reviews, previously. I love mine. I felt that the waist band was very forgiving and lessened any possible muffin top issues. I first thought I wouldn't like the side leg pocket and that I'd miss my back gel pocket that I'm used to on other crops, but I was very happily surprised how my phone felt like nothing in the leg pocket on my run today. These are my new favorites. I am 5'9" and 132, the size 4 is my usual, and it fit well. It did feel a bit snug at first but felt great into my run today. I would recommend for early morning runs, or temps 55-65 degrees. Awesome. Will buy another for sure.

I just received my second pair of these crops as I loved the first ones I bought (purple/stripes) I like that they're light and I love the side pockets.
I decided to buy the black/stripes and probably would have ordered more however I just received them and right after I put them on I noticed the stitching coming undone?? The fit is perfect but the pair I just received appear to be very poor quality as this never happened with the purple ones which are still holding together, however I have only had them a few months.. I own quite a few crops and this is not something you expect when spending this much money, very disappointed.

I was apprehensive because there are so many negative reviews but these really work for me. Long crops or full length pants always come down as I run no matter how tight I do up the draw string and above the knee shorts or runners shorts always ride up, I am forever adjusting...cut the crops are just right. A lot of reviews complained about lack of draw string they must have fixed this as mine do have an elastic draw string. Also a lot of reviews complained about sheerness I purposely wore a bright patterned pair of undies to try them on and in black they were fine I did not try on the coloured ones though. I did notice there were 2 different blacks available one "normal" and one extra shiny (another common review complaint) the extra shiny black fabric was strange, very thin, and as one review describe "slimy" I am glad I did not order on line because if they sentthe extra shiny iI would have been uber disappointed.

OK, so these are the first crops I've ever bought from lulu though I have 4 pairs of WU full length pants.
I think the material is totally weird. I don't mind the faux leather at the sides and I love love the pockets but the luxtreem feels cheap and thin. I didn't feel they were see-through per se but more that it was so thin it exposed every wiggle and jiggle especially in the butt. none of that lovely classic lulu butt flattering here. i felt like every jiggle was obvious, and I'm not large (5'5 and 120)
I do like how light they felt for a warm day run, and the pockets are really good especially for my upcoming race day to keep supplies. but I regret paying full price for them considering the quality. it's not worth it
the mesh at the back is a little scratchy but it didn't bother me when I was running.

I wanted to like these....
I tried my TTS 6 and a size up in these crops. I loved the way they looked and the side pockets. My TTS fit, but was sheer. The size up, 8, fit and was sheer as well. Major fail. Please, fix this sheer problem!

I tried these on in the store and was surprised at how thin and shiny the material was. They were tighter than usual. I've seen this over the past few months with Lulu's pants. They were really unflattering since the thin material showed every line and crease, not to mention underwear (and I've personally never had a problem w/see thru fabric). The stitching was poor and the entire pant looked like it would fall apart after a few washings. Disappointed.

This crops are super cute. They are also super sheer and feel slimy. My husband agreed that they accentuate the right parts, but he also told me hey I can see your butt crack through your pants! Not really what I was going for. Maybe its the shiny material? But the crops feel weird and slimy against my skin. Defiantley not good for hot yoga and definatley not good if you want to keep your privates well, private.

I bought these online and when I got them they had the security tag left on. Sorry Lulu, but what?? It has been nothing but a hassle, I live no where near a store, have to re package them and take a special trip into town to bring them to Fed ex.... not even an apology or offer to make up for the HUGE inconvenience of getting an unwearable pair. To top that the other pair i ordered were 100% see through. tsk tsk Lululemon

My new fav crops
I was a little hesitant to order these after reading some reviews, but I own 10 pairs of black crops and needed something a little different. These are my new favs! I love them. They are thin but not see through, they fit great and are very flattering. Lulu you need to make them in more colors.
