Wunder Under Crop *Full-On Luxtreme
Disappointed yet again!
After Lulu went public and having all my pants look like GARBAGE shortly after purchasing (my original pair are still in their best shape), I refused to buy any pants there as $100 pants that pill within a month are obviously not worth it. After 2 years of not finding the perfect crop for the gym (I did recently - they are Nikes) - I decided to give them another try. The sales girls convinced me and found what they said would be the perfect pair for someone who does weight training and crossfit workouts (that would not show my underwear when I bent over - I cannot seem to find a full length legging now that doesn't...). I am very pleased that these ones are not see through and are a completely different material so that they CANNOT pill - however I am constantly pulling them up. The slippery material just makes them slip down. Pretty frustrating to be doing various workouts and have to awkwardly be pulling up your pants all the time. After going through many reviews I see that almost everything made pills and is definitely not worth the outrageous prices... not sure why nothing is being changed.

I bought these exact style of pants 3 years ago and loved them - they were comfortable, nice thick fabric and durable. The seams in the crotch ripped but since i wore them all the time I wasn't surprised. I wore a size 8 and they didn't stretch. This past December I bought the exact same style but in a different colour (black). When trying them on i had to go down to a size 2 which was surprising (the old size 8 ones still fit me well). I noticed the fabric felt thinner, but they were extremely comfortable so I didn't think anything of it. However, now that I have brought them home I have noticed they are extremely see-through. Even if i bend over slightly, or reach forward they are see through all through the rear. I am extremely disappointed of the clear disregard for product quality and in the future will be purchasing my fitness clothing elsewhere.

FALL DOWN CONSTANTLY
I absolutely love the feel of these pants...but I bought the size I usually wear and they fall down constantly. I wore them one time and had to pull my pants up every five seconds. They are the correct size for my body but aren't functional at all. Pretty disappointing considering you spend $72 on nice pants and they aren't functional at all. There is no way I can wear these to yoga! Super disappointing....

Love the fabric, Hate the quality.
At first, I loved these pants. I've had them for about 2 months and they were fabulous for the first one or two wears. I love the fabric and the fit of these pants! But as I kept wearing them (just to yoga, or doing cardio) I noticed pilling and threads coming loose.
I have a lot of Lululemon clothing so I washed them with only like items- and yet the pilling and threads coming loose continued. It's gotten to the point where it's practically un-wearable and I'm afraid they'll completely bust open while I'm at the gym.
I am absolutely apalled by the poor quality of these pants, especially when they come with such a high price tag. I have workout pants from Target that are heads and shoulders better quality than these for 1/4 the price. I am SO disappointed.

Expected more for the price!
Bought these just over a year ago... And anyone who knows me knows that I take extreme care in things I buy... Following all washing instructions and only wearing these to zumba class... 11 months in and I am proud to say I have no pilling like others complain of but the seam around the top band has started to unravel! Needless to say I have not been wearing them in fear that my crops will be topless in public! For the price of these crops I expected them to last for years!

I have wanted Lululemon crops FOR YEARS, and I finally took the plunge and treated myself to a pair in November. I listened carefully to the cashier's instructions about washing carefully and with like items. Flash forward two months, and I've only worn the crops twice while studying. Finally done with my finals I got around to my laundry last night and washed my crops for the first time in cold water with other black work out gear, and left them hanging to dry. So disappointed to find that the seam down the back of the pants is frayed and now has several strings hanging off the back of the pants. While I know I can easily just snip the strings and pray the seam holds, I would have expected MUCH better quality spending a near fortune on one pair of pants. Was hoping to buy another pair of crops for myself as a Christmas treat, but maybe I'm better off taking my business elsewhere

After saving up all summer I bought myself these pants as a going away present for myself for college. I was so excited to finally have my own pair of lulu crops! The fit was great, the fabric was soft, and I was so happy. I did everything they say to do to take care of them; I even washed them in their own loads so that they wouldn't get washed with bulky things like sweatshirts. However, 2 months later I noticed that the fabric on the back and sides was starting to pill and become fuzzy. A few weeks later I saw that the seam on the left hip is coming out and the fabric around it is completely frayed and noticeably ragged. It has only been 3 months since my purchase of these brand new leggings and they already look like they're a good year or two old. Safe to say I'm very very disappointed; I was really looking to get my money's worth out of these :(

Great pants - small fit
I bought these pants about a month ago online so I didn't get the chance to try them on. I didn't realize they were a different fabric from the the typical groove pant I usually get, but it's great! The fabric is definitely breathable and they hold their shape great!
I will just say that they do fit small (especially if you have a butt, like myself) I bought them in my regular size and they are way too tight so I'd suggest possibly going up a size. I didn't bother taking them back because there are no stores around me, but I still enjoy them.

nice crops, bad experience
I bought these pants earlier this year (about 6 months ago) and loved them at first. They were comfortable for whatever activity I was engaging in, be it running, yoga, etc., and seemed durable.
A few months ago, however, I noticed that the inner waistband pocket ripped (without a known cause or accident), causing my keys to float around inside the pants while I'm working out - not fun! Keep in mind, this happened within the first few months of owning them, but of course, I don't have a receipt anymore. It should also be noted that I don't even own a dryer, so I can't be at fault for "compromising the integrity of the fabric", as the staff at Lulu like to remind you during your purchase.
All in all, I wish I hadn't spent as much money on them as I did, seeing as I don't believe I subjected the pants to any harsh conditions or severe wear and tear, other than wearing them in your typical workout setting, and they have already suffered some damage.

Stretches over time
When I bought these leggings in a size four, they fit snugly around the waist and butt. I am saddened, however, that after a couple wears and washes the leggings are too big. They no longer fit comfortably and I am forced to constantly pull them up over and over again. It is loose and baggy even though I followed washing instructions. I have seen other reviews on this problem so maybe try buying one size down? I am dissatisfied to say the least.
