Run: Inspire Crop II *All Full-On Luxtreme
Excellent Running Tights!
Contrary to reviews of these tights, I love them. I have the manifesto print and I think it is great. It is not raised, and is almost unnoticeable unless you get fairly close. In pictures, the tights look black. I like that. The material is comfortable, flattering, and ideal for running and barre classes. I can run, go to barre, and run errands without skipping a beat. I found they fit true to size.

Iridescent Multi Inspire Crops are too tight
I was excited to see the Inspire Crops in Iridescent Multi hit WMTM. I love the print, and I've had a (mostly*) good experience with my two other pairs of Inspire Crops (Chevron Shuffle and a black pair with Stained Glass trim at the waist) which I love wearing in hot yoga. (Plus, the cut of the inspire crops are really cute!)
I just got my size 4 Iridescent Multi inspire crops in the mail --- and have to agree with the reviewer below that they are quite tight! To me, it sees like a fabric issue (rather than a cut issue). Side by side, the I.M. crops seem to be similar in size to my other crops. However, they are significantly less stretchy. I can squeeze myself into them with some effort, however they're less comfortable and don't have the silky, stretchy feel of my other inspires.
Because of the oddly taut nature of the fabric, I do get that weird bunching behind the knees that the other reviewer mentioned as well. It's a bit annoying, and something I haven't had to deal with before. I'm ok with using these for yoga (since I already bought them), but I'm not sure if people who run would be able to tolerate it.
Overall, a really cute print, but the new fabric has some issues. I'm hoping this fabric was a fluke, and that Lululemon will go back to the older, comfier Luxtreme Inspires. Til then, I'll probably hold off purchasing Inspires until I can check them out in person!
*Chevron shuffle had some seam issues where threads would unravel...

Disappointed with patterned pant
I own these in black and LOVE them. So when I saw them in print in the "we made too much" section, I felt pretty confident in buying them despite them being final sale. I am a size 8 in the black and they are a touch too big, so I figured the patterned pant would be safe to have in an 8, as well. Unfortunately, they are a bit see through and painfully bunch behind the knee. I'm not sure how they seem both too tight and too big at the same time. Now I'm stuck with a pair of pants I can't wear and am back to wearing the black ones all the time.

should have listened to the reviews :(
I practically live in my Run: Inspires for teaching classes like BodyPump, BodyAttack, and indoor cycling. I'm a huge fan of the full-on luxtreme too...until I ordered these in iridescent multi. They are SO SMALL> I am an 8 in everything and regularly buy items off of WMTM without even thinking about sizing, however these are so tiny I had to triple-check the tag to make sure I didn't accidentally order a 4. I could barely squeeze my quads into them! The fabric seems thinner than my other crops and the small amount of give in the fabric makes the pattern so unflattering. I'm incredibly disappointed in this purchase but I guess that's what I get for not trying them on in store! :(

Great fitting Run Tights
While I found these running a size too small , after sizing up and going for a run in them , I have to say that they are Amazing!!! They didn't fall down , and I felt quite comfortable running my half marathon wearing them.
I love this style tight , but do keep in mind that with most of Lulu's run tights , you will need to size up due to the compression.
Otherwise , a great product!!!

I ordered an 8. Should have 10? Dont think that would have made a difference. Found these capris very small fitting. I have a friend who is an avid trail runner who bought them off of me, because these were a final sale. She usually wears a 4 in Lulu pants and these were an 8 and fit her perfectly. They were stunning on her! Me not so much. I am usually an 8 in clothing or a M/L. I do at least an hour of hard cardio 5-7 (running, trail running, HIIT etc) so I have an athletic/curvy build. Makes me nervous to buy any more bottoms from them online without stopping into a store and trying on. Cheers.

All time favorite
I got these in black and white about 6 months ago and they have held up amazing! I wear them twice a week and they haven't started wearing down at all. I threw out all my other crops because these have me so spoiled. This is the only crop I wear now!

I only wear Lulu crops and these are, by far, my favorites. They hold everything in place, don't sag or ride up and make my butt look great! I typically wear basic black and the manifesto print is a fabulous little detail. I don't find them too sheer at all, and I'm a fitness instructor who squats in front of a mirror with a class full of people.

Sagging Like A Gangster
This was my first pair of lulu crops and luxtreme pants. I had to get these after I saw the prisma multi guava lava boom juice/boom juice print!
I wear these for long and short runs and to the gym. The fabric keeps you cool the entire time.
I'm a 4/6 depending. In the store I tried on a 4,6, & 8 and on all three sizes I was left with a baggy crotch area.I bought the 6 and I do have to pull on them sometimes during my workouts/runs. The drawstring helps keep them in place.

Super fun prints! minor issues
I bought a size 6 (my normal size) which fit fine! I had tried on a size 8 but they looked and felt identical so I went with the 6 only because the 8 flared out slightly around my calves. Having worked out a few times in them I now wish I had purchased the 8's. They aren't too tight but the 8's would have been less constricting.
I wear them to Crossfit sessions and really like them for lifting but find them too tight to run longer distances in (I got really hot - also where I think size 8 would be better)
Overall I am happy with them, I just made the mistake of not buying a size up.
