Rated 4 out of 5 by aconte Great crops but major pilling
I am obsessed with these crops.. They are my absolute favorite but ever since I got them they have pilled almost everywhere. It makes them look so old and not in good condition at all. I have always washed them correctly and unfortunately I am really disappointed with the quality. We pay so much for these workout clothes and these things should not happen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cfbrunette Consistency Consistency
I got these in solid black and black with a white trim (white is on bottom, the pants are basically all black), both in a size 6. I had to return the solid black due to sheerness. I wore them to crossfit and had my friend pull me aside to tell me she could see right through them! I don't have this problem with the white trim ones. I wish the consistency in quality was there regardless of color. I do love working out in these though. I tend to sweat a lot and these dry super fast. They are extremely comfortable to workout in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GlutenFreeYogi Disappointed
I used to swear by these pants, but I purchased a new pair a few weeks ago and after one wear they got snagged on my jacket and ripped a hole in the thigh. I am 5'4" 110lbs and wear a size 4 and I have never had problems with these in the past and it is disappointing that I now have a $90 pair of pants that I cannot wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by YogiBear23 I absolutely loved these pants, very comfortable and fit well. And they seemed like good quality. Then all of a sudden the hem started coming apart and well as holes around the seams. I always wash my lululemon pants properly, never in the dryer. I own over a dozen pairs and am very disappointed with the quality of these pants/

Rated 1 out of 5 by Christy0287 I LOVED these, until I didn't. Despite following all care directions, and only wearing them maybe 1-2x a week, 6 months later, the mesh is starting to pill, the logo is peeling/wearing off, and now a small hole has popped up on the leg. My first pair of LuLu crops lasted almost two years, but 6 months is just super disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by calij Once loved.
I have bought a few pairs of these pants and couldn't have ranted and raved about them more than I have. Sadly, the newest pair I got have just fallen apart!! The inner seam near the thigh now has a huge hole. Just to add to the dismay, is the amount of pilling. Really disappointed in my favourite crops! Really hoping this is just a one off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by running4days Quality not like it used to be
I purchased my fourth pair of these running crops because my first pair never failed me through training and running my first marathon. Now training for my second, I can see the difference in quality just three years later. The latest pair has been worn for 7 long runs, and on the 8th, the seam split on the inner upper thigh where the mesh ends at the top. Unfortunately, it forced me to quit my long run 8 miles early, because there is no way I was going to let my legs chafe for the rest of it.
My first pair eventually did wear through on the seams on the inner thigh but that was after training for a full and several half marathons (hundreds of miles). It's disappointing that for the money invested, I can't count on these crops for more than 7 long runs. Time to look for a different pair of running crops, and probably not Lululemon brand after this experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by destinedtobefit Compression!
I sized up in these to fit my legs, they are definitely compression, the fabric I got anyway, comfortable, find the waist a bit big so I have to use the draw cord, but lululemon seems to be one of the few manufacturers that don't give people muffin top! I got two pairs like them both. Great for running, dry fast.

by woohoolulu Saw somone's b-hole @yoga whle she wering these!D:
*Please excuse the typos in the review title, no space and I had to add the little D: face at the end*
I was introduced to LLL when my husband walked into the store 3 years ago and asked for their best pants. The sales associate asked him what kind of exercise I do and he told her, "mostly running" so she recommended the Run: Inspire Crops.
Since then I have added many of the Run: Inspire's to my collection and it has mostly been without incident.
A few months ago my brother offered me $200 to get whatever I want for my birthday (hello, Lululemon! Here I come!) so I went to the store to scope out what goodies I could spend his hard earned cash on. Of course I settled on some new Run: Inspires but was told that they were being discontinued!
Having uncontrollable hoarder tendencies I immediately went home and ordered two pairs (goodbye, monies!).
I got them in the mail and they felt a lot thinner than the old ones I have, which was fine, and I didn't give it much more thought.
Then one day at yoga (btw, I'm terrible at yoga, I'm the person in class looking around to see what other people are doing) I'm looking around and I look up at the lady in front of me and I could see straight through her pants and she was not wearing undergarments that day. Which is also fine, had her pants not been sheer. And had we not been doing a move that leaves nothing to the imagination..
I was so shocked I fell down from whatever pose I was attempting and quickly tired to scope out what pants she was wearing. I was 99% sure it was the same pair I was wearing (Run: Inspires) but I kept stealing furtive glances to be 100% sure.
Given that probably no one else is as terrible at yoga as I am, this wouldn't be a problem since no one is looking there. I was left quite shocked and paranoid the rest of class that I was also putting more out there than I'd like.. so I slinked home and out of these pants as fast as possible.
To be fair, had you been wearing something underneath it's not a problem if you don't mind that been seen... but still...
A few days later I had my husband check me out as I struck a pose in those pants and he said that you can't see everything (thanks to the undergarment) but it's rather sheer (you can see skin).
Also, a seam on the front has already come undone. The ones I've had for 3 years now, lasted me through countless runs and even a half marathon have held up fine.
tl;dr - LLL, I still love you guys and I still love the Run: Inspires (they're still my go-to workout pants) but these last few pairs I got (I ended up getting 3 new ones XD) are a little too sheer for me. Also, it's not because these pants don't work for my body, I've had these style pants for years and they've worked fine. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by BethanyBeann Quality is not what it used to be
I just bought these a couple months ago and they look awful! They are pilling so much, the seams are so fuzzy, and there is already a hole in the mesh!! I have never washed them in a machine, always hand wash and hang to dry. I also have two other pairs that are less than a year old and they look like I have had them for many years! Just have to say I am so unimpressed with the quality of Lululemon these days, not what it used to be at all!!
