Run: Pace Crop
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).

Great fit! I am size 8 - 10 AUS & brought the size 4's. Perfect. Love the green & navy stripes. It feels great to look good while working out! First Lululemon purchase for myself (previously got a hoodie for my partner, which he really likes).

First purchase with LLL despite being very nervous about recent quality issues. Wore these on a run in hot humid conditions yesterday and they were brilliant. The fabric is silky smooth and very light. Despite the light fabric my lumps and bumps didn't show up and they are not sheer at all. I wonder whether the sheerness issue has a little to do with you selecting the correct size. LOVE that these have 3 pockets in them. They were outstanding in the wicking and drying area and were like a second skin especially when I started to sweat. They didn't budge at all. I didn't get any compression from them but they don't make this claim anyway. I will go back and try other LLL tights and tops assuming I have no future quality issues.
Oh and I have a large pear shaped booty and thighs and there was some serious thigh rubbing going on and no pilling has occurred whatsoever. Am usually a size 14-16 in Aust pants and bought the 12. It's possible a 10 could be ok on me (due to the mega stretchiness of the fabric) but I will need to go try that size on in store to ensure they are not see-through.

Great fit but want more colour accents
Great fit, love the higher waistline (less chance of a muffin top) and love the looser fit around the knee. Great for bike and great for yoga where you bend your knee heaps. Couldn't get the black with green edging which I loved, so would love some more fantastic highlights.

Ideal multi purpose crop
I was surprised to read such mixed reviews on this crop. I've had them for a few months and love them. I find them great for running and general gym workouts. They are very comfy and a great length. If the zip was on the side they'd be perfect for Pilates too.

Bright & Vibrant
I bought these crops to try and motivate myself to be more active - and that they did. I have used these babies for running and cycling, they are so comfy I would enjoy wearing them casually.
I bought them in the colour Very Green, and get lots of compliments on how bright and fun they are. Lulu - please put your bright colour varieties online, and even better - make more colour varieties. I would definitely buy these over and over!
The material is fabulous, after a month on and numerous washes the colour hasn't faded and the fabric hasn't piled. The hems don't rub and they have not been sheer. I think ensuring you buy them in your correct size and they aren't too tight is key to stopping the world seeing your pants through them.
