Speed Tight *Full-On Luxtreme
I was ecstatic to find something with pockets but after a couple wears the color faded I didn't know how drastic it was until i compared them with some of the ones from the store not to mention some stitches weren't properly executed, random threads poking out and the logo is peeling.. Of course I couldn't get a return, so now I own a pair of older looking pants. Grr not worth the money!:,(

A+ for design, Major Fail for materials
After seeing so many people in Lulu's, I gave in and bought these pants as my first Lulu purchase in January (6 months ago).
Initially, I loved the fit. The compression fabric held me in place and the natural waist left no weird bulges. The side pockets were strategically placed for easy access to store my phone.
Within four months of regular rotation with my other active wear/pants, these pants were heavily pilling (fuzzy) in rear, random parts of the legs, and knees. The fabric is also noticably thinner in the rear where it is pilling the most. The materials are not holding up to normal wear and tear; the excessive pilling make these pants look really old. (See attached photos. The poor lighting makes the color look slightly different from picture to picture. Sorry about the dog hair!)
My work out routine consists of a lot of running and the gym. I actually don't do a lot of yoga or pilates (where I'm sitting down or having a lot of contact with the ground which may have explained the pilling).
I have 6 yr old pants from another active wear brand that have held up better than these new Lulu's. I'm really disappointed because the design is nice but the quality does not warrant the high price. I'm having some serious buyer's remorse.

I've never looked so good in tights
These speed tights are awesome! They are tight (thus the name) but seriously feel amazing on. I use them for fall/winter outdoor running and occasionally for Pure Barre (although that can get a little hot).

Best Tights Ever.
I am pretty surprised at most of the reviews as I am obsessed with these. So far I have two pairs only because they are hard to find. Otherwise, I would have more! I love these pants. They were true to size for me, I am a 6 and they fit great. I am 5'5" and 125 pounds and I occasionally tighten the drawstring for a long run just in case but really have never found them to be falling down.
I teach yoga and pilates and have worn them for both and find them to be great. And to be fair with the side pocket being so ideal I wear them to the office with a blazer. I love them for running but also for a day when I just want to be comfortable.
I literally have no complaints with these pants. After 10 years of buying lulu this is by far my favourite pant. I hope to see it back in stores in the fall.

I bought these tights in solid black a few months ago. LOVE the style and way they looked on, and they way they fit for the first few weeks. After about a month, they began to pill, stretch out, fade and the stitching began to unravel. Now they are not even wearable. Love the idea, but disappointed in the quality...especially for the price.

cute but not functional
Although I do wear my lulu gear for lounging, the main purpose of buying it is to workout in. These pants are not functional for their intent (running). They are too loose in the waist and fall down into saggy drawers when I run. Even when I tie them. There's no way I could size down because I do crossfit and have muscular calves and these are already borderline too tight in the calves.

I got my running tights in March( Pace Queen Tights). I wore them few times, washed it as I was supposed too. They stretched out after not even a month!! There must be something wrong with lululemon's running tights. I can't wear them, they fall down. I own another pair of running crops , i purchased last year and they are great. My new tights stretched out and are bigger over 1 inch than they used to be. Both pairs are size 4. I attached a photo of my tights. I put my old crops on the top of the new ones. You can see the difference. They aren't available on the website

my favorite pants
I have to defend these pants! I've had them for 8 months now and I've used them for everything: running, yoga, spin, crossfit. They have a SMALL amount of pilling in the crotch area, but its fully expected due to how often I wear these. I am admittedly somewhat lazy about my washing etiquette when it comes to my lulu gear, and these pants are still in great condition. They are super comfortable and not see through at all.
Lulu: do you carry this exact pant in cropped style so I can sport them all summer?

These tights are absolutely amazing until you wear them for about a month. They are so cute, comfortable, and look great on, but after only a month of wearing them, they began to pill a lot on the butt and knees. I followed all of the care instructions, I did not wash them with any cotton clothing, I did not put them in the dryer, and always washed them in a mesh bag. They are now very pilled and for such a high price should not look like this. My friend has a nike pair that look very similar, not as cute, but she has had them for a year and they do not look like this. I have never written a review before, but felt compelled to write one about this product.

I was really excited about these pants-my first pair of lululemons and I bought them the day before my husband and I moved overseas. I was really looking forward to them lasting a long time, but unfortunately after just 3 months and 4-5 wears (2 washes, inside out), not only is the pilling getting worse and worse, but parts of the seams are starting to unravel. No holes yet, but I am a little nervous. I took forever deciding on these and for the price, was expecting a lot more. I wish I would have thought to check reviews online while I was in the store.
