Yeah Yoga Crop
Maybe It Depends on the Batch?
The pair that I tried on was not see through, and I squatted, deep-squated, down-dogged and lunged until I was breaking a sweat. They are compressive, flattering, and a beautiful print. If you are used to wearing black crops/pants and are afraid of prints or color, this is the perfect break-in for you, as they are still dark but way more fun. They have a lower rise, but I like it. The only reason I passed is because I bought some other stuff instead, but I plan on going back for these if they are still available.

Hate to say it, but these crops are see-through.. fff
Tried to go up a size but nope, they're still sheer even when loose - In both the purple print and just black (I'm 5'8, 125lbs, size 6 for reference)
Otherwise, these are nice crops with great compression and the mesh is cool. Just don't bend over or else everyone's gettin a show! Since these would've been for pilates, I have returned them for a more functional, non-sheer pair :)

I've been buying from Lulu for a few years now, and this is the first time I've ever felt compelled to leave a review.
Here's a quick run-down:
- Pretty print
- Nice fit and cut
- TOTALLY SEE THROUGH
- The Luon does not feel like Luon. More polyester like material...
I guess I'll keep them since I was only planning on running in them, but I would never, ever, ever use these for yoga like the title of the pants suggest since I would feel like I'm flashing everyone. I don't even have to bend over all the way and I can easily see what underwear I'm wearing...
Very disappointed in you, Lulu. Can you please get you &#$% together?

Pretty darn good
I feel like these crops are getting a bad rap. I just wore them to a spin class and i was happy with their performance! The pattern/color is really pretty and the length is great. I was worried the mesh panel would be too see through but its not at all. The material is quite different than the old luon but it says that in the description as well. They feel way less stretchy so i find them more tight but that also means they stay put. I could see these being too sheer if u wore the wrong size. I don't do yoga so i can't really say for sure but personally i feel like they would be kind of see through with all that bending but for spin and zumba i really like them. A nice change from plain old black!!

Love these pants. I'm 5'1 athletic build, with quads and these fit great. No muffin top and great length. Inspire crops are too long but these were just right. Did not notice them being see through. Bought them in the purple pattern and black with pink waistband. I got a size 6 and I'm 127lbs. My usual size.

Disappointed: Great new style but... See through!
I absolutely love the style of this pant. The colours are fabulous and beautiful. I was so excited to bring these home (in multiple colours) and try them on. I purchased both size 4's and size 6's to see which would fit best (I am between sizes). The 4 fit great but I noticed they were quite sheer. I then tried the 6's and they were big and still sheer! I did a slight bend and I could easily see my underwear! These will be going back. Great style pant but poor quality. This issue was the same for the new wunder unders I bought as well. I thought the luon issue was resolved but that doesn't seem to be the case. It is so disappointing given all the beautiful colours that were recently released.

Finally I got in fast enough to secure some inkwell tights!
These are tight, so I was a bit hesitant to remove the tag, but I wore them in Attack this morning and they passed with flying colours. Comfortable and flattering. The side mesh kept me cooler.
My only criticism is with the sizing. I'm a 2-4 in Lulu tights. Not sure why some 4s are baggy whilst others are tight? If you're between sizes I'd recommend purchasing the larger one.

Wasn't sure if these would be too low rise, but they fit just like WU! I am in LOVE! Please make more prints!

First, the purple print is GORGEOUS! Second, the crop is very flattering. And then it ends there.
After wearing it in the dressing room for a few minutes, it became itchy. I walked around the store hoping that feeling would go away, but it didn't. I didn't have relief until I took them off. They don't feel like luon.
Also, the fit was off. They didn't cling to my butt like other lulu pants, and the waist was slightly loose.
Sadly, I left them on the hanger.

Not quite right
I love the print,it is beautiful. But honestly.. It doesn't feel like Luon.. It's too polyestered. The waistband was loose while the hips were tight. I ordered a 10.. I wear a 10 in wunder unders and inspires. They don't fit quite right and the rise is super low. I am going to leave the tags on,thanks to the holiday season, until a different bottom in the same print comes out and then I can return these.
