Run: Pace Crop
tight in the calves
I love lulu crops. I have 6 pairs of run inspires and numerous WUs and thought I would try something different.
I bought these crops in my usual size 12 and they fit TTS, They look super cute when they are sitting nicely, but they dig in to my muscular calves. Nevertheless, I decided to forge on because they look cute and make my quads look nice.
But now, unfortunately some stitching is coming undone, so I think I might have to take them back. Bummer.

These crops are so so cute. I am obsessed with the seams, the reflective little area at the bottom, the mesh, they're just super cute pants. Read all the reviews that these were thin so I bought them in an 8 (I am 5'4", 125 lbs and generally wear a 4) so that they wouldn't be see through. I have been told they are still a little see through on me, but not bad. I bought these expecting to wear them to dance in but I do not think that will be happening as the bottom legs will not stay down, they tend to bunch around the knees. Given, I do have giant calves but still. Also, again, the see-through thing. I do still love them and will be wearing them around the house and everywhere else I go (except the studio) because they really do make me happy when I wear them!

Best crops ever
I bought these for just overall workout clothes, and I wore them until the day the seams just couldn't stand it anymore. Best pair of crop pants I have ever bought and I will buy them again as soon as my size is available! BEST purchase I have ever made and it was a very sad day to see them go!

Great fit over all. The one thing I can't don't like about these is the seaming over the butt. It looks fine if I'm standing still, but do a lunge or anything else that moves the glutes around and it gives you this weird bumpy triple-butt. I'm not particularly bottom-heavy - 5'8, 130 lbs. I wear them because I'm stuck with them, but they're at the bottom of the stack...

Pretty details, but poor quality
I bought these crops in black in my usual size 4 for crossfit, and I love the shorter length (I'm 5'3) and seaming in the back, but the material is very, VERY thin. A friend actually told me after class that she (and probably the whole class) could see my underwear any time I so much as bent over to pick up my water bottle. Would not recommend.

So cute ... but with a fatal flaw
These crops are soooo cute. I love the seaming on the back and the stripes. But they creep up from the bottom when you run or work out! They end up bunched up just below my knees. I bought 2 pairs and was hoping to love them, but sadly I'll be returning the unworn pair. Down with creepy crops.

These crops don't disappoint
I have these crops in the navy wee and white wee are from space patterns, and I just received the black wee are from space.
These crops are great for running as well as spin class. I always receive complements when I wear these crops.
I have never been able to fit an iPhone into the back pocket, but I can fit my spare car key for runs.

Wish I hadn't taken off the tags...
This review is for the wee are from space black/grey stripe ones. I find that different colours have very different feel in the material. I found these shiney when I first tried them on but they are flatterning and cute so I convinced myself to take the tag off. Went for a short run with them today and not super happy. They feel like they fall down a little - I was pulling them up from the knees. I have a ton of lulu crops (my inspires are my go-to's) and have never felt like the crops are slipping. They are my usual size and actually feel a little tigther than my others. They are not awful, but as other reviews have stated they do feel thin and a little cheap. I will still use them but they are def not a favourite.

I have another pair of these crops from a couple of years ago and the material is much thicker and they fit better. I am hoping the very thin material that I did not really notice when I bought them lasts.

Thin fabric might fall down
My initial impression trying these on was whoa...this is thin!
I bent over, and couldn't see through, but the change room was dimly lit....I would have liked to try it in natural or fluorescent lighting.
The seaming was flattering. It gave good butt as far as fit goes. I loved the detailing. It did fit tts, I'm a 4 in lulu, 5'6 120lb.
Belying my fear or sheerness, and the fact that I couldn't get back in the 2 week window to return them if I tried them at home...I felt tnT the waist was....?flimsy? Nit sure if that is the right word. I felt like I may get some swass crack if I didn't tug them up. I have a boy build...hips and waist are almost equal, but they didn't feel as snug as I'd have liked. I tried on the stripes FYI. Maybe if you are more bootyliscious it would be better? I dunno.
Too bad...loved the stripes and the detailing.
