High Times Crop
The best EVER!
Of all of the lulu products I have bought over the years, these crops are my absolute favorite- so good, I'm writing my first review (on any website, ever!).
I stand at 5' 8", with long legs and a long hip, so finding well-fitting pants for my proportion is a challenge (isn't it for everyone?!). Too often, crops look like odd half-pants, and I unwillingly show more midriff than Christina Aguilera in her "Dirrty" phase.
The 7/8 length of these crops is perfect- they look the way crops should, fitting right below the calf- and the high waist keeps me from constantly hiking up my waistband. These crops look good and feel great.
I did size down from my normal 8 (the waist was a little too loose in my usual size), and had no problems with the fabric quality when I did.
PLEASE, lulu, make these a staple item. All your tall(ish) gals will appreciate it!

Please make more!
Absolutely in love with these! Fabric is so soft and opaque (read: not sheer) even in the soot color. Rise is perfect with no muffin top. Reminds me of old lulu. Please make more or even better, make these a core item. I would love a black pair.

My love for lulu was beginning to wane - so tired was I of constantly managing the dreaded muffin top. As a yoga teacher, I have enough going on in front of a class - I don't need to be micromanaging my mid-section on top of it all! But then these crops came into my life. I feel so much more confident when I'm wearing them - my mid-section feels trim and tucked in - it has made a world of difference to me. I hope lulu continues to make these, because I can never go back to the other rises.
I also like the full-on luon - no issues with sheerness and I find it a good thickness. I have always wished that luon was a bit less velcro-y - lint, pet hair cling to it, dry skin catches on it, bleah, would love to see something less prone to that.

Love these pants!!
Absolutely LOVE all the high waisted stuff that Lulu is coming out with. It's especially beneficial for this pregnant girl!! Please please please keep making all the fold down pants and please please please bring back the fold down Boogies!!
Anyways, the pants are awesome! They fit very similar to the Wunder Under roll downs but are a little bit longer in length. They fit true to size and I like them because they hold everything in. These are great!

They were perfect??at first
I purchased these in grey, my usual 6. They felt AMAZING, looked amazing. The length was perfect, the foldable waist a dream. They stayed put. Love. So I turned around and ordered the black, same size 6 only to find that the black pair were a totally different story. They stretch out after an hour of wear and slide down. I wore them to barre and had to tug on them for the full hour. Heck, just walking around the house I have to tug on them. I don't have this problem with the grey which are nice and compressive?.but the black is a problem. Plus after one wash they look 5 years old. :( what a bummer. I have other black tights that are 5 years old that look better than these. I have never ever asked for an adjustment on a problem item but I was so disappointed I went in to talk to a sales gal and she basically said, sorry, you washed and wore them. Now I'm stuck with them. Boo. I want to order the cadet blue but I'm too hesitant. I don't want to make another 90$ mistake.

I was looking for a new pair of versatile crops and tried on everything in the store. These were far and away the most comfortable and flattering. I've even worn them for a run and they stayed put without any slipping. I will say they don't feel quite as compressive as my regular WU's, but they're just as flattering if not more so. Also, I have not had any issue with sheerness with these pants in my regular size (only saw sheerness when I tried sizing down).

These tights are amazing. I purchased them in black for winter workouts and they are perfect! The fabric is warm and the fit is spot on. The wide and high waistband means no more muffin top or readjusting pants mid workout. Highly recommended.

Full-On Luon??? I Don't Think So!
I want to start by saying I actually really liked full-on luon. I have quite a few bottoms in the full-on, such as gather and crows, wu, wu roll downs, practice daily's all in black full on luon. But I seen these in the fatigue colour which I really like and wanted to give them try. They are in my opinion no where near the same material as any of my black full-on's are. They are MUCH THINNER and lack the compression of my black ones. They just feel a lot cheaper. Has anyone else noticed full-on luon getting thinner? Feeling cheaper in the last few months? Is it just the colored bottoms or have they also cheapened the black full-on luon as well? Up until now it's been a few months since I bought any.

I love high waisted anything, so naturally, I had to try these on. I love the waistband on my Barre Pulse pants, so I figured that these would be no different, and I was right. The waistband is so comfy, and while they're not super duper tight, they definitely feel like a comfortable second skin on me, like most of LLL's full on luon bottoms. I typically wear a 4 or 6 in LLL bottoms, and I wound up sizing down on these and got a 4. However, at 5'1", these are not crops on me. I didn't bother having them hemmed, since I can always roll up the bottom and definitely plan to wear these with riding boots come the fall, but I really wish LLL would stop forcing us short gals to have all of their pants hemmed!

Fatigue Green Shows Sweat- DON'T WORK OUT IN THESE
I got these pants specifically because I love the fatigue green color! I asked the girl at Lululemon how she liked them- of course she loved them- I asked her specifically if they changed color when you sweat in them she said she just did yoga (so didn't sweat?). I got them anyway.
I just did a Crossfit wod first time wearing them and have a huge amount of sweat areas that completely turned a dark green color... that would normally be the same color in my other lulu pants. I would say these are great for maybe walking around in or picking flowers but not doing any sort of strenuous activity- unless you want large embarrassing sweat spots. -- definitely a fashion crop and not a function crop.
**Note these fit more like long crops--- I am 5'9 and they come around 2.5" above my ankle bone.
