Wunder Under Crop *Cotton (Roll Down)
Comfy but Disappointing
I love these crops so much, but I'm really disappointed in the quality. I bought the heathered medium grey/heathered light grey. The coverage is phenomenal, they really hold their shape well when I wear them, and you really can't beat the softness. I didn't buy them with the purpose of working out in them, more for lounging around the house and travel. I've only worn them a few times on long car rides to our vacation home in Door County and there is already excessive pilling in between the thighs. I know my thighs touch and rubbing creates friction which causes pilling, etc. My problem is that I hardly walked in them - basically from the house to the car!!! If you are planning on moving around at ALL in these, I would skip them... I have leggings that I wore in college for years and walked all over campus that were from American Apparel and they aren't pilling the slightest in the inner thigh area.

Like clouds on my skin :D
I'm in love with this roll down crops and they're my first lululemon crops. my best friend gave me my first lululemon item back in 2011 which is the run speed short and I was hooked from shorts to sports bra to tank tops.
The fabric is really soft. I didn't have any problems of it not staying up. I love the roll down design because it doesn't cut through my skin. I am 5'4, 128 and I bought size 6.
the only reason i gave 4 stars was because of the stitching i noticed in the back of the pants. today's the first time i used my pants and the stitching is already unravelling in the crotch area. I'm really hoping the stitching won't get worse when i wash them tonight.
Lululemon, is there any way I can send it back for a replacement or have it fixed? Thanks!

Bought these in cadet blue. I initially loved them because they are SO comfy. I haven't had the same problem as others regarding the fabric stretching out or becoming baggy. Would have bought more colors but I started wearing them to yoga and barre and unfortunately it's a guaranteed butt sweat mark. What's worse is, I don't even sweat that much. It's humiliating and I have to make sure I'm wearing a top that's long enough to cover my bum. Totally sucks.

Disappointed for the first time
I bought these pants to wear around and do yoga. I wore them a couple times and had issues with the roll down top. It never stayed the right way and the material was very uncomfortable. They are supposed for yoga, but when I took a quick yoga or pilates class, I felt uncomfortable and they did not breathe at all. The material was so thick, I felt like I couldn't move and easily sweat through the dark gray without moving much. I love all things Lulu and can usually make it work, but these are just not functional.

Impulse purchase gone wrong....
I had no interest in these Roll Down Cotton crops until I actually felt the fabric. They were super, super soft and felt like something I wanted to live in. I tried them on and there was no disappointment. I need another pair of crop pants like a need a hole in my head; but I dished out the $82.00 anyway. Without hesitation, I put them on the very next day. I wore them around the house while I was preparing to leave. It wasn't until I got to my destination that I realized that while I was sitting/driving, the crops had stretched out. I tried to pull them up higher and roll the waist down a bit lower to make it seem less obvious. The trick worked until I sat down again and they loosened even more. By the time I got to the studio, my crops had baggy knees and a droopy butt. I know they are cotton, but I expected the material to remain "tight" as the description clearly states. So disappointing and such a waste of money.
Ladies, if you still intend on purchasing these.... perhaps go two sizes smaller so that after they stretch out they might fit properly. I'm being sarcastic but serious at the same time.

Already falling apart
This is my fourth pair of wunder under crops. I was so excited to try the 100% cotton version. When I first put them on they were soft and fit amazing. The gray color is also very stunning. After only practicing in them twice and washing them once I noticed pilling between my legs where my thighs touch. This does not bother me too much as all of my leggings eventually get this. What really upset me was that my boyfriend noticed a thread hanging out of of the crotch area. I removed it with scissors hoping that would be the end of it, but this morning he noticed another thread unraveling from my back area.
I wish these pants would last as they are very comfortable and attractive.

These are my favorite crops! The cotton is so soft and comfortable. The fit is fantastic and I love the high waist, which is very high on me since I'm short (5'3"), but sometimes it's nice to feel "tucked in" although it's good to have the option to roll down. These fit me TTS (103 lbs., size 2) and are great for anything and everything. Perfect!

Yes & No Recommendation
5 Stars! I'd recommend purchasing the heathered medium/light grey and the heathered black. They stay put, they breathe, fabric is sooo soft, they don't get baggy or saggy. They wash beautifully. I've had them since January and they still look new. I wear them once every 2 weeks all day.
0 Stars! The fatigue green, garbage. From the first wear they have been saggy & baggy in the knees and the butt. Worst of all they creep down so I'm constantly adjusting whether it's during pilates or lounging. I also purchased all 3 colours in the full length version and the green is the same way in those too! I'd like to buy the cadet blue but I'm afraid they would be like the fatigue green.
Part of why I love these so much is because they fit perfectly. The regular wunder unders in luon and luxtreme don't fit me very well. The 6 is too loose and the 4 is too tight.
For ref: 5'6", 120lbs, 36A, slender w small butt.

Best crops EVER!
I bought these crops thinking that they would be like any other high rise crop, they would stretch out and slip through my work out. But boy was I totally wrong. I own quite a few different brands of work out crops as well as multiple lulu crops, but these have won my heart. They stay up even through my most intensive work outs and runs and they're super light and comfy! They're also very flattering. I am normally a size 6, with big legs, a but butt, and a smaller waist and these don't move. I recommend!!!

These are amazing. Love how soft and comfortable these are! I am tall and these do not rise as high as other brands I have so they can easily be worn with no roll down and not look silly. I will definitely order more colors!
