Run: Pace Crop
The fabric felt thin and cheep. The stitching across the backside created puckering causing major cottage cheese bum. The top of the crop caused muffin top. Overall very disappointed in design and construction of the item.

Indented alongs seams, slid down while running
I first went into the store to try on a variety of crops, these looks great on my butt. My toddler awoke from his nap in the stroller, so I had to made an exodus. The associate wrote down the styles that looked best-she was awesome. I got home and ordered my favorite pair. When I received them I noticed that every seam formed an indent in my fat! I thought it was strange, especially since the associate said I could wear a 4, 6 or 8 and I went with the 8. I wear a size 0 in Rock Republic, a 2 in GAP jeans. I hoped that strange indenting would disappear during my run, but I found that it didn't and instead I identified a new problem -they kept sliding down at the waist, giving me muffin top. I had the string so tight at my waist I had a red line after a three mile run. I was so disappointed, I thought these were my dream crops, especially for the cost and the feedback I had heard. I intended to return them but didn't get around to it promptly. They shipped on 3/10/14 and tried to print the shipping return label today, 3/31/14 and learned that they are strict about the 14 day return policy. I was told to take my crops into the store for an assessment. The store is an hour away and shopping at a mall is a special treat these days with a toddler...looks like I'm stuck with these. I rate a zero for customer service and zero for quality/consistency of product.

I like the fit but bunches at the knees a little
I loved these pants when I first tried them on. They are comfortable and flattering with enough pockets for my needs on regular runs (I'm not usually a distance runner, just 2-3 miles). I ran in them yesterday in 50 degree weather and they were the perfect weight, very wicking and I did not get hot or cold. The waist cord made the fit perfect and they did not slip down at all. The only problem I had was the shorter length that caused them to bunch up at the back of my knees a little as I ran. It was fine for a short run but I would not want to wear them for a long distance run as this would irritate my skin. I'll keep them for short runs or other workouts but will stick with the longer running crops in the future.

I have had these for a few months and I wash them in cold water on a gentle cycle and hang dry them. I looked at them after a workout an there is a small hole starting to form in them. I don't live close to a store to bring them in either.

Love these tights but please bring back old design
I've got these in black with the hot pink thick waist band. Best crops ever, fit great, pull everything in, have lasted about 2 years!
I want more but really don't like the current designs as they don't flatter my figure with the stripes and colours on the legs and back.
Please bring back the basic black with the thick coloured waist band - hot pink, royal blue, yellow and I'd buy them all!

Love the fit on these. Love the details. The sizing is perfect and true to size. Super comfy and don't slide down. I have a lot trouble finding pants that stay put. Wish there were more colors.

Hands down my favorite crop/tight so far...
I already have the Runday crop and the Race With Grace Crop. On a whim last week I bought these online. Hands down my favorite crop. The fit is the most flattering, there is more compression in these (must be the powerluxtreme?) and the size 4 is dead on. A lot of times a size 4 is a touch snug on my thighs, I get that shiny material but then a 6 is too loose in the waist and not near the right amount of compression for running and I worry it will slide down.
Very pleased that the size 4 was perfect.
I'm 5'3, 115lbs but thick in the rear end and thighs.

Watched the site like a hawk ... got lucky!
I am a recent Lulu convert who primarily buys running crops and tops with shelf-bras for my HIIT workouts. I noticed these crops when I first starting buying Lulu in January 2014. I loved the Paris Perfection/Black and how the stripping went across the butt (I kinda looked like the A&F jean piping from my college days!) Well, they were out of my size online and no local store had them.
/insert sad face
Well, lo and behold last Friday, I was refreshing the Lulu site (am I neurotic?) and these crops came up and they were available in my size (8). I hurried up and whipped out the card to get them! I was super excited! These are actually my Valentine's Day present!
Here is why I love them:
1) They came the next day. No, I did not pay extra. Within 24 hours, I had the pants on my behind. Go Lululemon and FedEx!
2) The fit! I saw where people said they run a bit small. I toggle between the 6 and 8 in Lulu compression crops, but the 6 wasn't available, so I got an 8. They fit me just right ... there is small extra space in the crotch, but it is nothing the drawstring can't fix! I am not sending these pants back, so I will just have to make do!
3) The styling! Boy, do they look good! The Paris Perfection pink highlights my bum!
4) The material. They feel good to me! As I said, I am new to Lulu and can't compare crops from 2007, but I know these have a quality feel to them and they are not sheer.
I cannot wait to put these bad boys on with my matching Push Your Limits tank. I will definitely be the best thang smoking in class! (C'mon now ... this is why we buy Lulu ... to look good in class while getting our sweat on!)

Those crops are very cute and flattering.
I'm 5'9" 125 pounds and got the size 6.
The only reason I took off a star is that I might have liked a little more compression. On the other side, they are very light and wicking. The detail on the rear and on the knees are really nice.
Reflectivity is a great addition compared to my run inspire crops. I prefer the smaller length also.
No sheerness problem.

waist band different color
I have had a lot of trouble finding running pants that fit my body type (small waist, J-Lo butt). I own at least 15 different types of Lululemon crops and ordered these in a size smaller than what the ladies in the store suggested and I am glad I did. They are not see through, the material is more supportive/thicker, and they do not fall down when I run, yeah! I will be getting rid of all my old Lululemon pants (the ones where I had to tie the pull string about a foot to make the waist tight and the edges "bubbly") and will sausage myself into the smaller size. I love these pants for running and can use them for pretty much any type of workout I do in the gym. I had almost given up on Lululemon. My only complaint is you ran out of 6's already, you only have one color, and the waist band is a different color than the picture (not a big deal because I love hot pink).
