Run: Inspire Crop II *All Full-On Luxtreme
Blue lotus camo love!
I love, love these. Fit in my opinion is true to size and are definitely not sheer. Fabric is not as thick as the plain black full on lux but I have been told by educators that because of the print, fabric will feel differently. I have no issues with them sliding down and they feel very light. Color is gorgeous one of my favs as opposed to the green.
For reference I'm 5'7 157 lbs ordered my usual 8 and no issues!

Great Look Terrible Fit
I have about 5 pairs of Run Inspire Crops and love them all, by far my favorite workout pant. When I ordered these I was expecting them to fit the same as all the others... I ordered the same size but these pants are WAY too tight when working out. I regret wearing them but didn't have a choice because I work out at lunch and failed to pack another option(I trusted they would be consistent with my previous purchases). Due to lululemons insane return policy I now have a $96 pair of workout pants I'll never workout in again. I love lululemon but I am extremely disappointed by this purchase.

Chevron print is the hottest thing around!
I love these pants for running and spinning and the chevron print DID NOT disappoint. Cute enough to wear as casual pants and for workout - have received tons of compliments. Sizing on these, as usual, is a little big. I am usually a 12, but 10 is good for these because of the luxtreme. More fun patterns like the chevron! I have no doubt this print will sell out, so if you are thinking about buying - don't hesitate for a second, they are worth the price tag.

I haven't purchased any lulu products for a couple of years because I have found the quality that is was 5-10 years ago has went down. I purchased these on wmtm and was pleasantly surprised! They fit true to size and the fabric is great! I haven't worn them yet so I really hope the quality doesn't disappoint after a few wears. I hope these change my mind about lulu quality again!

Cute print, horrible print placement
Unfortunately, I will have to return the first pair that I ordered of these printed pants online because the way the fabric was cut with the placement of the print made it look like there were 2 large brown marks on my rear end, which would annoy me every time I wore them. My husband laughed when he saw it. Hopefully the 2nd pair looks more normal, and more like the product photo which seems to have no brown splotches on the back side. I still like the print. Unfortunately, it took Lulu/Fedex a whole week to deliver the item, so that means I only have a week left from the date on my invoice to get the 1st pair returned and probably can't wait until I get the 2nd pair before I return them. Did I mention I hate Lulu's return policy?
I'm not sure exactly why people thought these pants run big, however, since they fit me exactly TTS -- I ordered my normal size 4 and they the same as all of my other Inspire IIs.

Completely see through
This review is for the blushed illusion multi/white crops.
I was so excited to purchase these online, but when they arrived I was sorely disappointed. This particular color is completely see through. It's so see through that you can read the rip tag through the crops! Definitely returning them...

I bought a size 6 in these about a year and a half ago and they worked great, and then there was a hole in them about 6 months later in the thigh area, so I brought them back to the store and they let me get new ones, except the lady told me i should probably go up a size because of where the whole was, and so I listened to her, and it was the worst choice, they don't stay up any more and are way too big. So about 3 months ago I had a hole in a totally different place and brought them back again, hoping they would let me get a new pair and I would just go back down to a 6, because since I have lost weight as well, and they sent them into get repaired, they did not come as well as I would have liked, the string used to repair was not cut or tied off properly. I am not happy with the way they handled this from the beginning, especially because I am an avid buyer of Lulu.

The pants were great in the manifesto style and i love their look sooo much, but after a few wears the back seaming is fuzzing and making a very unattractive look... not sure if the store will take them back even though it wasn't my fault

Thankful for Lulu's amazing customer service :)
My first pair of Inspires ended up with a hole in the crotch (I am very diligent about how I launder my Lulu). After taking them back to the Orlando store and being spoiled by amazing customer service, I picked up the updated ones. The fit is similar, however the waistband is a bit funky. The Luon is awesome though, and they don't budge during a 10 miler. I found that they fit true to size (5'2", 125, athletic legs & butt, wear a 6).

I don't understand the hype
Everyone seems to rave about the Run:Inspire crops, so I decided to try a pair in the blue camo. I'm 5'1, 115 lbs, size 2 in jeans and I got my typical size 4. The fabric didn't seem to have much give, so these crops felt restrictive. The waistband was weird too. Because it's not one big flat waistband like the speed tights, for example, but two pieces (check the pictures if you don't get what I'm talking about), it made my midsection lumpy and weird looking. Not flattering.
I did not experience sheerness.
These could possibly fit better if I tried the next size up or maybe if I were taller, but for the price and the overall fit, I didn't like them enough to try to exchange for a larger size.
