Finally a great crop for summer!
I have been eyeing these for awhile online and finally made it to a store and I LOVE these! In fact I bought two pairs. I love that they did a bleach coral color so that I can wear with some tops from last year! For reference I'm a size 6 in all lulu bottoms and these were no different. I'm 5'3" and weigh about 130. The medium rise and length are just right for me. I'm very surprised these haven't sold out. If they go on sale I will likely buy a third pair, since good crops have been hard to find. i did not find these sheer and they are very flattering to the backside :) My only wish is they had at least one side pocket.

Awesome running crop!
I bought these for my longer runs - I don't like to run in shorts and my other crops either fall down at the waist or the fabric isn't comfortable enough. I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of run crops to accompany me to Seawheeze. These passed the bend-over test and the jog on the spot test in the changeroom so they came home with me. The fabric feels great! It's not too shiny and it's nice and compressive without being too tight in the waist. The rise is perfect! These crops stay put when I'm running! No more fiddling with my pants!!! I love them! I bought the black on black because I'm not crazy about the stripes down the legs, but I might venture out of my comfort zone and try some coloured ones too. Good job on these Lulu!

Makes my pace perfect
I LOVE THESE!!! Seriously, my favorite lulu item for a long long long time. These remind me of the lulu of old, the brand we all fell in love with years ago when it was made in Canada instead of overseas. The fabric is compressive and comfortable and perfect and NOT sheer! The fit is amazing, they're flattering, true to size, and (best of all) I don't even notice them when I run. I forget all about what I'm wearing, and just run. And isn't that the point? I want every color.
PS- the length is perfect for me, but I'm 5'3". If you find the Inspires a tad long, this may be your perfect ticket.

This fabric is seriously incredible. I really like the full-on luon too, but this new luxtreme is insane. It's perfectly compressive, really comfortable and soft, and provides SO much coverage!
Additionally, the fit of these crops is so dreamy. The rise is perfect and they cut is so flattering. I usually stick to WU's instead of lulu running crops, but these are exceptional. TTS, too!

Love, love this crop. First time I have written a review. I have lots of
LuLu running crops and tights, this are by far the best. Will purchase another pair, just need to decide what color.

Perfect running crop
As others have said, these crops are not sheer, comfortable and flattering (especially in the print colour). Could be my new go to crop for runs.

My Pace is UP!
This is a GREAT crop. Good rise, doesn't slide down when you run, plenty of compression and not sheer. They fit like a dream. Pockets would be nice, but I'm really happy with the purchase. Its perfect!

Comfortable Compression and Full Lux!
I haven't written a review in a while because honestly i've been quite underwhelmed with almost all the products i've purchased lately. Let me tell you though, lulu nailed it with these. These are the best lulu crops i've worn of late. I purchased the Bleached Coral pair, and even though the website does not list it, the hang tag states that these have a full lux back panel, and let me tell you they definitely do. Such great coverage and compression. I do not believe the front panel is full lux, as it is much lighter in weight, but for a run crop I love that, as it makes for a cooler run. I tested these out on a 3.5 mile run today and I didn't have to tug at them once in the waist. In fact I could barely tell they were there, which was awesome. Really was impressed with these. I usually wear a 6 and the 6 worked perfect for me. The only thing that would make these even better is if they had the side pockets, like another reviewer mentioned.

mid rise luxtreme crops = win
Like other reviewers, I found these crops fantastic. Opaque fabric, comfortable rise, and a classic style. I think these would work for most body types. TTS.

I was a little hesitant to order these crops as I am not comfortable with the new material that lulu has been using, especially for pants. Let me tell you, I'm glad I ended up buying them--this is the extremely close to the original material and I love it. I use it for kickboxing and the crops stay in place, no riding up, and it is def. not sheer, and the compression is great. I got mine in my usual size 6 and they fit perfect. I highly recommend these! I will def. be buying more in different colours!
