Speed Tight *Full-On Luxtreme
Not what I expect from Lululemon
I've never had a problem with any of the purchases I've made at Lululemon, until I bought these pants. I bought them in January and have probably worn them less than 15 times. They are pilling all down the thighs and the crotch is very saggy and unfitted. Not very impressed at all with these.

Great fit but patches of pilling!
These pants were so close to being my winter go-to running pants but ended up being so disappointing! The good: They fit well, are flattering and have a functional design (love the pocket on the side)!
The bad: I've never had pilling like this on anything from lulu. The pilling is also in the most random patches - the hip, the front of the legs, etc. This pilling is only after a few washes in a wash bag on the gentle cycle. At a price like that you better believe I take care of my lulu gear.
Lesson learned - should have gone with my normal running tights. Please find a way to prevent these otherwise lovely items from pilling!

Loved at first
I bought these and wore them just a few times before the rear area and between my thighs started to fuzz up. creating little balls all over the fabric. I have a few pairs of wunder unders that have never done this. These were even more expensive. I love the fit and the style is perfect, but hate that the fabric is already worn down... very sad.

Need to be improved
When I first got these pants I was in love! They fit perfectly. They felt and looked absolutely amazing. After having them for 2-3 weeks I noticed there was pilling on the knee and butt area. The fabric in those areas is quite thin. Some of the stitching is coming loose also. Words cant explain how amazing these pants were when I first got them but I cant wear them anymore. These pants are very expensive and shouldn't be doing this so soon. Lululemon has great products and this could be but it needs to be improved. I wish I could exchange them.

Absolutely love these, but also very disappointed
I absolutely love these! I waited awhile to buy a pair, but was thrilled with this purchase. They fit true to size - same as my other lulu pants,and the luxtreme fabric is fantastic, cozy, comfy and not see through.
As soon as they came in the mail I took them out and didn't want to take them off. After a few hours, I noticed white pills along the seams. I tried to gently pick them off, and the threads started coming out. I then noticed loose long threads hanging from the crotch, inner thigh and buttock areas.
I wore them for a shorter run then a boot camp.....super comfortable and easy to work out in. The waist is s bit higher too. I washed them in gentle cycle with three other lulu items, all inside out. They now look a bit "furry" or "fuzzy" especially on the thigh area. I was really disappointed - $98.00, one wear problems, one wash, even more problems. I'm scared to wash them again!
So, yes, I would recommend them because they fit, feel and look so great, but on the other hand, no I wouldn't because of the poor quality and cost. I was prepared to buy two more pairs of these because of the pros, but I now feel like it's just not worth the money. This saddens me because I find it so hard to find something comfortable for high impact workouts. Im okay spending the money if they fit and feel like these, and are good quality - i want them to look good and last long. Any recommendations?

Great compression; Irritating bunching at knees
I bought these for running and loved the compression they provided in the store. They look great on and highlight all of your "assets," but they don't hold up as great while running.
Unfortunately the material gathers at the knees and becomes quite irritating. This could be due to my height (5"3), but I haven't had issues like this with previous running tights (Lulu or Other) - I think it's due to the material.
They fit TTS, for reference I am 127lb and wear size 4.

my favorite pants... until
I love lululemon. All of my pants are lulus. I got these pants for my birthday (march 20th) and I couldn't have been more excited! I love the fabric, they are incredibly flattering on and feel great. I even ordered my second pair in "soot" yesterday. With that being said, I just noticed that the stitching is coming unraveled on the back of the right leg. Considering I bought these pants two weeks ago and spent $98, I would think they would have a longer life span that 14 days. I couldn't be more disappointed. I will have to return the pair I ordered yesterday.

SPEED TIGHTS MAKE ME SMILE
I joined a running group last week, and due to the cold and snow I decided to go buy some running tights. I choose the Speed Tights and I am so happy with my purchase. I have worn them for two runs and just tried them out at boot camp this morning and they held up really well, no slipping down at the waist band :) I made sure to wear bright, printed underwear with them when I tried them on to ensure they are not see through. I love all the pockets on the pants and the ruffled bottoms. They have held up well in the wash and I have no piling yet. I will be purchasing another pair next week because I am so impressed with them. Best thing I have bought from lulu in awhile, FLUXX fabric is a winner I hope you will make more items in this fabric.

This was my first lulu purchase. I was very excited for these tights. I fell in love with them when I tried them on in the store. However, the FIRST time I washed them, I noticed that the stitching came on done at the bottom of the pants where the reflective tape is! It is about to fall off. I have had pants from department stores, for a 1/3 of the price that this does not happen to.

deteriorated after 2 months
I was very unimpressed with the quality of these leggings. I bought this exact pair in about early December and have only worn them on saturdays lounging around my house and the bum and the knees have began to pill and wear thin. None of my previous pairs of leggings from Lulu have done this, and i have washed then through the same process and these haven't held up at all. Would not recommend
