Run: Inspire Crop II
I have a ton of lulu pants and crops but I just recently found a pair of my run inspires are unraveling. I am very disappointed, I guess I was lucky to notice it before they split! I haven't seen this with any of my others so I am hoping its just this pair and not a decline in quality.

For ladies with a larger waist to derriere ratio
The capris looked good but I felt something was off when I started to move in them. I compared them to a pair of the exact same cut (and size) that I got several years ago. These are roomier in the butt. Most measurements were the same except the seam on the butt on this new pair is about 1.5 inches longer than the seam on the old pair, allowing for the butt area to stretch more and therefore I had to keep pulling them up when I was dancing. The upper thigh measurements were also a bit larger, and the leg openings on the calf was wider by almost an inch. Only the waist is still a "size 4," most other parts of this capri seem to have gone up a size (and I have a pretty good waist to booty ratio.. so this one is definitely for some bigger booty girls). I will be returning them.

I bought these because I work with a trainer 3x/week, high intensity. I SWEAT like no other woman I know! The sales person educated me about the "moisture wicking" material, as well as the construction, etc. designed for running, or my kind of workout. These pants are everything they say they are and worth every penny! I will buy more like these. I've never owned a pair of workout pants that I love as much as do the Inspire Crop II.

So disappointed - Stretches out after a few wears
These were my first lulus ever and I'm so disappointed by how quickly they stretch out. When I first bought them, they fit like a glove. Now after about 10 wears they've stretched out to the point of no return ? about a size or two too big! And washing them won't even shrink them back. If I knew this was going to happen so quickly, I would have sized down.

I love these for dance and for yoga! They're just perfect for dancing, mine are thinner than my other leggings, but they're my favourite! So great, truly recommend this to anyone! The quality is great,my friends (who wear them just for fashion) tell me that LULU stuff is losing their quality. But I still find mine very good.

Inspire Crops Best Pants to Run/hardcore workouts
To me these are the best pants to workout. I might be drenched in sweat but I don't feel like the fabric gets heavy on my legs (unlike other kinds of pants). I just love them and could live in these forever after, very happily. I don't see where the problems with the see-through are coming from. Maybe if you size down so small? That would happen with any pants, get the right size and you will LOVE these.
And they wash GREAT! Cold delicate cycle hang them to dry, done, they look like new after xyz washes.
No the real question: WHEN are more colors/patterns coming here to the USA? Here is my request list ;)
- Inkwell or black/Turquoise ankle curve
- Black / iridescent /metallic ankle curve
Get creative fun patterns and colors keep them coming PLEASE!!! (yes I am begging!!)

love, but disappointed
i LOVE these crops and wear them almost every day. however, soon after i bought them the threading on the waistband quickly started coming undone. slightly disappointing after spending money on them.

Extremely disappointed in the quality...
I've been hearing great things about lululemon from my friends for a while, so when a new store opened in my mall I decided to jump right on it. I run 35+ miles per week all year round, so I was searching for good running gear for when it gets a little chillier. I tried these on in store along with a few other items, loved the fit and fabric. Everything seemed great, so I ran with them the next morning and loved them; they moved with my body, fit like a second skin, and I didn't have to pull them up once. But after two runs, before I even washed them, I notice some threads in the stitching coming loose but I figured it was just one or two. I then followed the proper directions to wash them (only with other lululemon clothes, on proper cycle, etc). One week later, the inside leg is coming apart at the seams, literally. The flat seems are frayed near the bottom hem and all the way up the inseam. It's really disappointing because now I'm afraid to wear them and have them completely come apart; these would be my favorite running crops ever and I would recommend them to everyone if it weren't for the terrible quality. It's puzzling because some of the older lulu products owned by my friends have held up for years. For almost $90, I would have expected much more from this company. Won't be purchasing these again.

Thin Poor Fabric
Literally just bought these and after wearing them twice and not even to workout in there are already threads coming loose and 2 small holes in the seam! The fabric is really poor and thin!! I was really excited to add a different Lulu pant to my collection but as much as I love the style these were a huge dissapointment!

I absolutely love these crops. they are so cute and comfy. But the quality is terrible. I just got these in september and I've worn them a total of 4 or 5 times and there is already a hole up near one of the seams!! These are really expensive so I expected them to be higher in quality for what I paid. If they get holes just wearing them around the house then they are definitely not worth the money I apparently wasted.
