In The Flow Crop (Stripe)
These pants have made me snap
I don't think I'll shop at this store again because of these pants. They are TOTALLY see thru! Not just the outline of underpants, like completely transparent when I bend over. Thank god I checked before I was actually in a yoga class and would have been mortified! And these pants are officially the straw that broke this loyal Lululemon shopper's back. I bought my usual size. I've been the same size in about 15-20 pants I've bought over the years, so this isn't a size issue. I have supported this store since it was a little one room studio above another store on 4th Avenue in Kits. I loved that everything was cute and made in Canada. When they moved production to China, I still kept buying. But now that they sell see-thru petroleum smelling products, I can't see any reason to shop here anymore, especially when it costs me nearly $90 to buy pants.
If you guys aren't going to produce better quality products or ethically sourced/produced products than the rest of the 100's of athletic wear companies, then I can't see why I shouldn't just buy my gear at Winner's or Nike now for half the price, and this makes me terribly sad. I wished you could have supported you in this global expansion. I guess I'll just think back fondly to buying my first maroon yoga pants with my first flat-locked seam from you in 1999 when I lived in Kits, but I'm breaking up with you now. It's not me, it's you.

So I just bought these today and I'm in love. I saw previous reviews about people having to pull them up constantly or the sheerness factor, but I went ahead and got them. I got the dark stripe. They look amazing on and are so flattering. I did not see any issues with sheerness(at least so far). I spent some time practicing arm balances and did not have any difficulty with them falling down.

Cute but Sheer
Very CUTE pant. Tried on in my regular size and VERY sheer with bend-over test in dressing room. Not just a bit of tag & panty-line, but EVERYTHING clearly visible with every other stripe. Quite inappropriate for a down dog in my opinion. Going up a size, waist too loose so I had to pass. Do bend-over test before opting to keep. Maybe I tried on a 'bad pair'?

Originally I tried these on in my usual size 6 and they were see through. Then I tried on in size 8 and they were perfect. I love the fit and material. I am 5'7 and 135 lbs.

They aren't sheer!
I was nervous before ordering these because of the split reviews on if these are sheer or not. I took a chance and ordered a 6 when I'm normally a 4 in Lulu bottoms (5'8'' and 123 lbs). I squatted in different lights and had several different people double check for me. They aren't sheer at all! I completely agree that maybe the sheerness is due to a sizing issue. It's sucks mentally to go up a size when Lulu's sizing is higher to begin with but proper fit is worth it :) These are super cute on and I love them!
Also, these aren't thin at all. Way, way thicker than even dancing tights (saw someone compare them to pantyhose- yeah, no lol!)

So see-through, it's embarrassing!
I own two pairs of the In the Flow pants, one solid and the blue striped. I love the fit, the seamless design and the amazing blue color, but I discovered that the striped pants are WAY too see-through. I'm not talking a little sheerness only when you bend over completely (which I've come to expect and accept from most yoga pants, lulu or not), I mean I could totally see my lady region (not just my underwear) in the mirror through the lighter-colored stripes when I did any kind of spread-leg pose (from 3 rows back!!).
I was so disappointed; I love the solid version and I don't have the same issue with them. However, the striped pants are just unwearable, and I'm not sure what to do with them now that they've been worn.

Awesome stripe crops, but already at the hemstres
I bought my flow stripe crops about two weeks ago. They fit amazing on, but this week I put them on and the thread was coming apart. I took it to get it hemmed. I truly love this crops, don't know why these are not holding up as well as the flow crops.

Squat and look!!!!
All I have to say is when you try these on make sure you squat and look at your behind in the mirror.....
Not cool Lulu!

Sheer and snagging!
So so sad! I LOVE these. They are so cute. I am a huge fan of the In the Flow Crop, but the stripe version is sheer! I already have a few snags and have only worn them 3 times. Nothing unusual and I baby my Lulu, but a few places are a little rough already. This seriously makes me sad. I hope I just got a bad pair and can get a better one in more colors because they fit and feel amazing. Even better fit than the regular In the Flow and that is tough to beat.
No I didn't size up, nor did I need to. If I did the waist would be too big.
