Speed Tight II *Full-On Luxtreme (Brushed)
Disappointed in first lululemon purchase
I have heard great things about lululemon so for my birthday I asked for these tights as I specifically loved the amount of pockets(still do, so convenient!) but I am so sad that after owning them for a little over a month, having only washed once(followed exact instructions even washing them alone as I heard that should help prevent pilling) that they have started pilling on the top left hip/waist section and there are many seams on the ankle, crotch and hip that are either pilling or coming loose. For pants that cost over $100 I would have never imagined this would happen, I thought I was making an investment in my workout clothing by requesting these for my birthday but I am very disappointed as I was so pleased with these before the quality problems arose, I have similar pants that I have had for 5+ years and these same problems have yet to occur. (side note, I think I took the wrong size as the lady in the store recommended to go a size up in these as they fit small so I took a 10 instead of my usual 8 so when they stretched they are a little too big, though I love the drawstring in the waist to keep them up after they stretched in the waist)

I just bought these yesterday. I love them! They are thick and not see through at all. They also are very flattering and very comfortable. They have a similar back to the run inspire crops 1. I'm curvy with very thick strong legs and these just look awesome! I feel comfortable in them to wear to school or even to work out they are very versatile. I would definitely recommend them. I haven't washed them yet but I'm sure that if you wash them with care everything will be fine.

Received a pair of these for Christmas, was excited to hear that the "brushed" material would be much warmer in the winter?wore them a handful of times to run errands and washed once, they began to pill at the bum and inner thighs and have several loose threads. I have owned many other luxtreme bottoms over the years and have never had any pilling on the luxtreme fabric. I specifically purchase 'run' bottoms as I am in love with how smooth the luxtreme material is. They are very comfortable and functional with the side pockets but extremely disappointing to be pilling for two month old clothing that cost $120.

perfect pair of leggings
I bought the capri leggings in this material for dance and was so happy with the quality of the material that I bought the leggings for colder weather. This material does not pill and they fit like another layer of skin!

Pilling stretching loose threads
At first I loved these pants but as I started wearing them the became more & more loose leaving me to constantly be hiking them up. I either don't get the drawstring or it's ineffective... How would you keep it tight unless you tied a knot which wouldn't make sense... I have never put any lulu pants in the dryer & only wash with other lulu and these are so terribly pilled and bally they look horrible. I could understand a little pilling on the bum or between the thighs but these are pilled almost everywhere. I also had a loose thread pull out all the way down one leg and the seam now looks fuzzy. I've had $20 Costco pants perform much better than these $100 pants. Unfortunate as I love lulu & will continue to buy but quality is not guaranteed I guess.

I got the 3/4 length ones like this about 6 months ago and my first thought was that I was going to love them. At the time they fit great and I loved the feel. After wearing them a few times, usually just to walk around the city I found that the waist and pockets on the side had started to stretch out and was constantly having to pull them up. I talked to one of the girls in the store and asked if it was normal for them to stretch out this much and they said that usually the don't lose their shape.
Every part of me wants to love these pants but the fact they will not stay up during a workout or a stroll around the city is very disappointing. I don't feel that they live up to the $100 price tag

bought my normal size, it fit perfectly at first but after a few washes the waist stretched out, I always have to pull them up.

Wanted to love these but...
I bought these pants after buying the purple ones (which I love they fit awesome, they stay up and you can do anything in them!) When I first bought these they were really comfortable but after a few uses they started to stretch and now they do not stay up right. I used them for pretty regular activities (a few runs, and a few times skiing) I did not wash them more than 3 times. Overall the pant is starting to fall a part and I purchased them 3 weeks ago and only washem them a few times. The brushed ones do not seem to hold up to the same quality as the ones without the brushed inside.

I don't usually review but I was so on the fence about ordering these by reading the reviews I thought I better! I have to say these are my new favorite pants! I love the way they fit, there's no rolling waistband, they do not fall down. I worked out in them and didn't have to adjust them once. I have not had any issues with pilling at all and I have already worn them multiple times. I ordered tts and there is lots of compression but I still find them comfy. I even ordered my daughter a pair, no issues with either. I definitely will be ordering them again :)

very comfy but after trying them on again at home noticed that they were completely see through in the butt area. Disappointed and i have had my wunder under leggings for a year, washed them all time and they haven't gotten see-through in the slightest.
