In The Flow Crop II
My First Disappointing Lulu Purchase...
I was so excited about these crops when I saw them come out, I own many different pairs of Lulu Crops and Pants and I wanted a pair in the heathered bordeaux drama (my new fave color)! Unfortunately though, they are not living up to all my previous pairs at all. I bought my standard size 4 and after just one wear, I noticed that the stitching seams in the gusset is already pilling. :(
On top of that, the crops are not staying in place at all while I workout. They bottoms are riding up towards my knees making it almost impossible to workout in them. I love the feel of the fabric, but they are not staying in place for me even though this is my standard size and I have never had this issue before. I also had a friend tell me in class that they were see through! Really disappointed after all this and wishing I had picked a different pair of bordeaux crops instead of these :(

So sad with these pants
These are the first pants I got from Lululemon a few months ago and I'm so sad that they are not working out for me. I love the thickness and feel of them but they keep falling off! it's so annoying and now I don't want to wear them anymore which is a bummer after spending so much money on them.

I am a loyal lululemon customer and up until last week I was not affected but the see through pant controversy. I loved these crops when I bought them. I wore them to my workout class last week (for the third or fourth time) when a very nice woman behind me informed me that they were completely see through when I bent over. On my way out of class (a little earlier than planned) another woman who overheard our conversation told me that she had the same pants and had the same problem. Mine are a lighter color so I hope that the darker colors do not have the same problem because I really liked the pant.

My favorite crops...BUT
I purchased these two styles(longer and shorter ones) in a size 4 and 6 on May 25/14. Have only worn them a dozen times. I absolutely love them but the seams stretch and the fabric is thinning and what looks to be running in spots in the crotch area. Very disappointing for crops that are not quite 4 mths old! These are not cheap and not the greatest quality for what I paid ! Very disappointing.

Wonderful fit and feel, poor quality make
I purchased these pants two weeks ago, and initially I was extremely happy with the quality and fit. The material feels thick yet also breathable. They are compressive which is also nice of workout pants but also have the perfect amount of stretch. The rise is perfect and lays flat over your tummy instead of digging in and creating a line.
That being said, I am very disappointed to say that the inner seam is also unraveling on my pants as it is in many other reviews. I actually noticed an 8 inch thread dangling from my inner thigh and upon further inspection noticed that the stitching had come loose across the entire inner seem! I wash the pants on delicate and hang dry all of my laundry, so I am confident that the issue is with the quality of the stitching.
I am a new mother and so purchasing such an expensive article of clothing was an indulgence I allowed myself as a treat. I have removed the tags and therefore discarded the receipt, so it is quite upsetting to now be stuck with something that does not live up to the quality that the expensive price tag implies.

I really wish these pants lasted longer..
I love the fit of these pants but I've had them for barely a month and they have torn in the inner thigh seam and now have some unfixable holes. I love the quality of lulu but this makes me very disappointed and hesitant to buy more pants in the future. It's hard to spend so much money for something that doesn't last longer than a few weeks.

LOVE LOVE LOVE These Crops
I can't possibly convey how these have become my favorite workout pant. They hold you in well, and the rise is higher in the front which affords an unexpected bonus, a control top, which makes you look fabulous!

I have worn lulu for many years and these are the best pants they've made in my opinion. I initially looked at them and thought to myself 'who are these supposed to fit?' because they look so tiny, and once I put them on, they fit like a glove. The waistband is so much more comfortable than the wunder unders which I had worn for the past few years, the colors are amazing, and it feels like I am not even wearing any pants. The only complaint is that they give a camel toe even when I buy a size bigger, but it's nothing extreme. Also, the seem near the crotch looks like its thinning a little bit, even with my bigger sizes, but it has not posed a problem as of now.
I just bought the longer version of these that you can roll up and make cropped and I love those just as much as these crops.
I was mine only with lulu products, cold water, no fabric softener, and I let them dry by hanging.

Love them... But...
These are my favourite crops (and I have quite a few lulu's). I love the fabric, the compression, the length...pretty much everything. I have 2 pairs that I love and have had no issues with. I'm 120lbs, 5'4" and size 4's are perfect.
However, I just recently purchased my third pair... I wore them twice (never washed...once just because and the second time to workout) and they are already unravelling at the seams! I found a small hole in the seams by the gusset after my workout. Thank goodness they didn't rip right open at the gym:( I bought them from the WMTM so I don't think I can return them. I would give these crops 5 stars if the quality of my recent purchase didn't start falling apart. :( so sad.

Not for everyone
I am a huge lululemon fan - all my sports bras and crops are from LLL. I've even starting buying shorts, headbands and underwear etc.
However, as much as I love LLL, these pair of crops I do not love and they are definitely not for everyone. If you are able to, I would recommend trying them in store instead of or before buying them online. No matter what underwear I wear, I can't seem to hide the "camel-toes", even with a panty-liner on and so I have stopped wearing them because it's just awkward and nobody wants to walk around flashing camel toes.
Stick with the wunder-unders.
