Run: Inspire Crop II *All Full-On Luxtreme
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.

Try before buying
After reading previous reviews about these falling down and even someone receiving them with a hole I just loved them so much I bought them anyways. I got them in black/white. Just my luck, when they came in.. there was a hole in the mesh.. I was so upset! I brought them into my local lulu store (I have never returned lulu merchandise btw) and I told the associate what happened. She was extremely nice and said she would of course get me a new pair. She then took me to the wall of crops, unfortunately my size was out of stock. She said she could order me another pair, but being as impatient as I am I didn't want to wait even longer for new lulus so I just picked out a different style from the store. I'm upset I couldn't get this style because I really liked it, but I am very happy with my other pair so I can't complain too much.
I guess I would just recommend buying this particular style in a store, trying them on and making sure you're 100% happy with them.

I was worried about buying these, especially because of the comments about them falling down! I heeded everyone's advice and sized down. Normally, I buy groove pants in a 4 or a 6. I normally like clothing to feel a bit loose in the legs, which I why I sometimes opt for the larger size. Last year I ordered this style in a 6, and it does shift when I squat. This year I ordered these in a 4 and didn't have any issues. Sizing down solved my problem. For reference, I ordered the blue..camo..oil...25 other descriptors in the color...he he.

Wish they stayed up!
I bought these in Camo Slick Blue/Inkwell and loved them when I tried them on. They looked really good and fit well. I bought them in my normal size 8 and they will not stay up! I went for a run in them my first day with them and I spent most of it hiking them up. I tried them again the next day with a crossfit class and again they would not stay up at all! If I'm going to spend almost $100 dollars on crops they should perform as expected. Again I really love the look of them but they need to perform well.

Wish they stayed up
I really wanted to love these. Bottom line is they do not stay up. I spend half my workout pulling them up. I purchased my usual size 6.

Printed crops seem to fit different
I was in love with my plain black inspire crops, so of course when I saw prints and designs I bought more. NOT HAPPY....... the plain black ones are amazing, they do not budge during my workouts and cardio. The printed ones, different story. I bought the camo and a white and black flowery print(sorry don't remember name). All are a size 6. The printed ones are constantly moving down when I squat and lunge. Very annoying. Oh wait!!!! I also have a plain inkwell pair that are awesome too. So just be careful of the prints if you are using them for working out or running, you might be disappointed.

Extremely disappointed in this purchase. These were super cute but once I worked out in them I was constantly pulling them up. For the price of these pants, they should fit like a glove and this is not the case. I am a coach and coaching in these were HORRIBLE because I was worried about them lowering every time I would squat. These are made for running and running was horrible, this is when they fell down the most, in the middle of my run. I could understand if I bought the wrong size but I have several other pants from Lulu with the same size and I don't have this problem. Don't buy these!!!

Will not stay up
I just bought these and have worn them twice. As many other users have reported, these darn pants will not stay up. At the end of every single vinyasa, instead of taking mountain pose I am left hiking my silly pants up. I am super disappointed. I think it's due to the fabric, as I have these same pants in both the Full On Luon and Luon/Lycra blend, and I do not have this issue. I've come to expect much more from lululemon, especially at this price point.

I bought these in the heathered texture lotus camo oil slick blue/inkwell and they show your sweat something horrible. By the time I left the gym this morning it looked like I had peed my pants. So embarrassing! Now I am left with pants that I am too scared to ever wear again.

I'll buy them over and over again
It's unfortunate that these crops don't work out for everyone because I love these pants! If you find that they are falling down maybe you need to size down? I usually prefer 4 and that is already tight enough on me but I bought the black/white reflective version and noticed there was fabric bunching by the knees that I didn't care for. I asked an employee if I was being too picky with the fabric bunching bc I didn't like the look of it and she said not at all and actually suggested I size down. I didn't think I could squeeze into a 2 but boy am I glad I took her suggestion! Not only did the bunching go away but a 2 made me look even smaller and I didn't think that there could be such a thing. I'm so glad I talked to that employee. She had said that inspires are meant to fit like a second skin. If only I had known this sooner! Now all my 4s feel "baggy" compared to the only 2 I own. I need to fix that asap. Lulu never lets me down.
