In The Flow Crop II
Comfy crops, some issues
I love these crops, but I think its a little misleading that they are marketed for varies exercises. I have had a hole on one out of three pairs but they were easy to exchange.
Pros: Super comfortable, stretchy, nice for pilates or low impact, exercise where you don't sweat a lot. I love these mostly for post workout when I just want to slip into something comfortable.
Cons: They show sweat lines. I get them in the crease of my legs and torso and its embarrassing. In hot yoga, I sweat so much I end up soaking them. The fabric being what it is, holds onto the sweat much like a terry cloth towel and its gross. It also does not wick the sweat smell, but holds it in the fabric as well. Also would not recommend running because it holds in the heat.
I do notice some gaping at the top of the pants but I have no issues with exposure since they come up so high on me.
*Tip, if you are in between sizes, size down.

based on patterned ones only!
I own about 4 pairs of the in the flows and normally love them. They are great-hold their shape, no pilling, nice compression....unfortunately the patterned one, which I paid $10 more for is not worth the price tag. I'm getting a little pilling on the thighs (which is easy to remove, but a nuisance to do); some of the seaming is coming undone; the waistband is rolling and falls down a little...DON'T pay the extra money for the patterend ones...stick to the plain coloured ones.
It is a huge bummer for me to have forked over the extra money when I should have just stuck to the coloured ones.

Need a belt!
My boyfriend gifted me these pants and I was so in love when I first tried them on! They fit me perfectly... or so I thought!
I did some weight lifting and some light stretching after and I couldn't tell you how many times I had to pull up my pants! It was so frustrating because I'm worried my panties will show when I'm squatting. I couldn't do my full set properly without worry about my pants slipping down and I had to stop a few times during my set to pull my pants up. I'm so disappointed! I love lululemon though! I have several jackets and sports bras but these were my first lululemon pants and I wanted to love them... but now I'm not too sure if I could still wear these since they slip too much... Sad!

The material is a little stiffer but gives great support and shape. Flattering for the bottom. Good quality.

Loved the fit but sweat showed
I absolutely love the fit and feel of these pants- they stayed in place throughout my workout! Unfortunately after the workout I was mortified when I realized there was a VERY visible sweat ring around my bum and thighs (it looked like I had peed myself!). I'm really disappointed in Lulu for making the pants in colors that are cute but show sweat so badly (especially since these are made to be workout clothes).

disappointed with quality
these crops are very hit or miss. I think the quality depends on the batch, because I own 4 pairs of these, and only 2 i have had issues with. with only a few wears, the stitching in the crotch area started to come undone!! Very disappointed in the quality of these, and i think lululemon should improve their stitching with perhaps reinforced stitching - since this has been a consistent problem with many of their products.

my favorite pants...for a short time
When I first got these pants, I loved them. So comfortable for lifting and I love that the waistband didn't bind. But, after wearing them a few times, a hole developed in the seam near the crotch. I'm so disappointed. The pants aren't cheap but I was all ready to buy more of them before this happened. I can't really be doing deadlifts and worry about flashing my unmentionables at any moment in the gym. Seems like Lulu needs to fix some serious design issues.

I wanted to love these crops. They fit great and I liked the dark charcoal colour. However, when I looked in the mirror I could see my purple underwear. Dark charcoal is almost as dark as you can get besides black so the material is of poor quality. You would have to wear a long top/tank that covers your complete rear area or not be bothered by people seeing your underwear. Not worth the $78 price at all. I will be returning and looking elsewhere for a nice fitting crop. Really wish Lulu would fix these issues or lower their prices because their quality in clothing has gone downhill.

these are my absolutely favorite pants- love how I can wear for full power flow and still run around in them all day.
I have them in every color ...
so upset because my blue pair which I have only worn a few times got a big hole right on seam at ruching...I guess I need to take back to store ---don't have the receipt...pay cash and then it doesn't count:)
but I am hoping they will stand behind the product and replace it! I have never had this happen and I have a few pairs that are much older and worn all of the time!

Disappointed In The Quality
I've been a firm believer that if you order your bottoms in your TRUE size, and not for the number, you will avoid the see through bum epidemic.... I stand corrected. I ordered in my usual size 4 that I always wear without problem in these. I was so happy to get a new pair in the mail, they fit beautifully in the waist, thighs, bum... Then I turn around, SLIGHTLY bend forward and BAM! Not only can you see my underwear, you can see skin, as well as read the rip tag clearly! What's happening to your products?? I've pretty well lost faith in you Lulu.
Seems to me that if you refuse to step it up a notch and make the products we are used to, you could at double panel the behind on your crops.
