In The Flow Crop II
Love everything but the quality
I love Lulu and I'm a frequent buyer. When I tried these on in the store I automatically fell in love with the feel and fit... It was also very flattering! I wore them a few times at the gym, unfortunately I recently noticed the seams in the crotch area unraveling and now there is a hole. :( no more yoga in these pants. I was in love with the pants, but I'm very disappointed with the quality.

Great if you want to have crotch ventilation...
Oh Lulu. So disappointed. :(
I bought these in black at first, fell in love with them. Got another pair in grey since I loved them so much! But after a few months, my black pair tore at the crotch. I thought it was just bad luck, so I returned them to your store and picked out a new pair in purple. Yay!
But now my grey pair also tore at the crotch. Clearly the first time wasn't only bad luck, but poor quality construction.
I'm going to return these tomorrow, but it sucks because I obviously don't want to replace them with the same model, but all the other crops have poor reviews as well.
As a fitness instructor, I cannot have pants that tear in the crotch area when all my participants are looking at me!!

Absolutely love, but what happened, Lulu?
I bought these in April/May and I absolutely love the fabric and fit! The crops feel amazing to wear, but unfortunately, just the other day, I, too, discovered a hole in the seam at the crotch! I am so disheartened! Out of all my Lululemon (been purchasing since 2008), I have never had this happen! Never! I will probably try to sew them up because they are some of my favorites, but I am still disappointed.

super disappointed, but great color!
i've been on the fence about buying these for so long, but once i saw the hot pink color, i caved. i wish i didn't. i now have a pair of hot pink lounge crops for wearing around the house. the length is awkward and the whole crop kind of slips down, so i'm constantly tugging them up. they're not loose though, so it's not the sizing. i'm not even going to attempt to work out in these. still love the color but wouldn't recommend this style to anyone.

Great Crops, But Don't Hold Up
I was fairly new to lululemon when I got these crops for my birthday in late March. I was a quick convert -- I love the fit and feel of these crops, and they work great for yoga, pilates, circuit training, you name it. But, much like other reviewers, I've had problems with the quality. About a month in, the seem on the inner leg started to unravel; this didn't bother me so much, as there was just a loose thread, and no holes appeared. Today, however, I was incredibly disappointed to notice a sizable hole forming in the crotch area. I spent my whole class worrying the hole would split more, and I can't see myself putting them on again (at least not for a class in public!).
My review: fantastic crops, but for $80, not worth the money if you're going to be replacing them every six months.

great fit.....poor quality
I own about 6 pair of these. and absolutely love the fit and thick waistband. However like most of the other reviews the seams in the crotch of 2 pair are not holding up. there are now small holes in the crotch :-( very disappointed because i love how they feel and fit.

I had been eyeing these crops for months but couldn't decide what color I wanted! When I finally purchased them, I was in love... for about two weeks. I too, like many others it sounds like, think the material is too thin and easily runs- especially around the crotch. I haven't even had them two months and I already have runs in them so I only wear them around the house now. For paying that much, I definately expected better quality!
For the record, I am a frequent lulu purchaser and this is the first piece I have been disappointed by.

Non resilient material/quality
Purchased these for a change in crop material. While the fit around the thighs are comfortable the waistband doesn't stay as fitted, as other reviews have noted. I can only wear them with tops that cover the waistline as it looks awkward. Also the material snags very easily, got a run my first time wearing them. I would avoid purchasing items made with the same material

good crop UNTIL
I loved my in the flow crops, I have three pairs! Until the last time I went to put them on I noticed a huge hole in the crotch?I feel that if I am paying so much for a pair a crops they never should get a hole in them..especially when they're not even 6 months old. I love Lululemon and am a total fan of everything I have purchased so far, until now.

great crop, but?
Okay so after reading a few reviews, I see there are a few of us in a similar boat. Love the fit, style, and feel of these crops, but? the In The Flow II crops all seemed to have suffered the same fate -- a hole in the crotch. Now I definitely wear these often (maybe 1-2x/week for crossfit and occasional run), and perhaps the frequent wear of these crops caused a hole. But I did only buy them last July which would make it only a year and a bit of use. Is this normal?
All-in-all -- I recommend the crop, but the quality seemed a bit lacking.
