Ebb To Street Pant
I found the secret to a great fit ;-)!
I can't seem to resist loud patterned Lulu leggings, and the heather regal plum zigzag pattern called my name. So I bought them, even after reading the mixed reviews.
The material is textured, giving it a thicker feel, much like pique or herringbone WU's. The leggings almost look like sweater material, but, and here is the secret, THE DESIGN DOES NOT FADE WHEN STRETCHED!
I sized down, and since the material is so opaque, between the smaller size, which makes the really wide and flattering waist band tighter, it didn't give me the dreaded too tight sausage leg look.
These leggings didn't show any sweat, hid, even in the smaller size, any lumps and bumps, the higher waist band gave me back my waist, and I was happy with my purchase.
Others have mentioned the crotch made of different colored fabric that the rest of the legging. Yes, it is true. The crotch is not the zigzag pattern but the solid plum, same fabric, just without the pattern. That said, I then checked my closet, and with about a dozen wildly patterned Lulu leggings, about half had a solid colored coordinating crotch color, the other half had the same fabric crotch. I had never noticed this until I read the reviews.
So, buy these darling leggings, size down for a great fit, and don't bother yourself about the fabric color covering your girl parts:-)!

I bought these pants because they were extremely comfortable and made of a very thick material. After a couple times of wearing them around the house they started pilling. I love lulu clothing but these were very poorly made.

Love this leggings!
I own the gray/black ones and just ordered the green ones. I down sized to a sz 2 based on reviews and they stay in place even after many hours of dancing. High quality material. :)

beautiful but constantly falling down
I want to love these so badly. They look great, they feel amazing, I feel so pretty in them and get great compliments, but they are constantly falling down. I have only worn them 2 or 3 times out and about and find I am always pulling them up. The website says they can be used for the gym but I would not dare wear them to a workout because of how badly they fall down. I'm a 6 or 8 in most lulu leggings. I bought a 6 in these because the size 8 gaped in the waist. I did not try on a size 4 but I feel like they would have been too tight. I'm very disappointed and will not be purchasing this style again.

Love these leggings!
I bought these leggings in September 2014 in the heathered black color, and after reading some of the bad reviews, I thought I would share my experiences.
I have had zero pilling, and absolutely no stretching out while wearing. It's not like I've only worn them a couple hours at a time here and there. I've worn them all day for a couple days in a row, and at the end of day two, they fit the same as the morning of day one. I got a size 6, which is the same as all my other LLL bottoms. I always wash them in cold water on gentle cycle, air dry them, and they turn out great. I do have one snag on them, but it came from my dog's rough nail digging into the fabric. I typically don't baby them while wearing, and they've stood up just fine.
These are my experiences with the black color. I don't know how the other colors hold up. But since I've had them 9 or so months, and just one tiny snag later, I think they're worth it. Plus pet hair doesn't really stick to the fabric!!

waiting to see....but so far so good
I was a bit hesitant to buy these after reading the reviews. I tried them on in my local store and I have to admit they felt great. I am a 6 in virtually all LLL, so I stayed TTS on these and they fit great. The waist is a little higher than my WU but I kind of like that. I went for a long hike in these (worried the entire time about something snagging them) and got home, didn't want to take them off - so comfy. Next I tried hot yoga. I did experience a little bit of the falling, having to pull them up but didn't feel like it was a whole lot different than the WU's. But it could be a problem for some. The knees did get a little baggy but doesn't bother me as I think these are a different fit then the traditional leggings. I really felt great wearing them thru class. And still no snags! Next is trying to wash them. I do think they are delicate but overall I (so far) really really like these pants. The heathered black is more of a dark gray. And they are a bit long. I'd like to wear them just down but I have to cuff them to make them look right (I'm 5'4 140lbs). I think I'll do another review in a couple weeks after some more wash and wear!

As a yoga teacher, I rely on lulu to create pants that won't fall apart! I have a closet full of lulu pants and unfortunately this pair will never make it out of the closet again because after just a few times wearing it, there is a hole in the crotch. I can't practice or teach yoga with hole there. Very sad because I love the style, which is such a nice difference from all the wonder unders. : (

love the fabric and fit, not the holes
I absolutely LOVED these when I first got them but almost immediately they began to pill and after a week of wearing them, I noticed a hole in the crotch. I was super bummed but tried to be creative by placing an iron on patch on the inside of the crotch to cover the hole, but alas, no luck. These pants have now been downgraded to house pants as I'm embarrassed to wear them out to class and when teaching.

Luv them No stretching or piling for me!
I bought these in the store in my normal size after Christmas and in reading the on line reviews I panicked.... I had a chat with lulu online person and they said wear them with full knowledge if you are unhappy we stand behind the product.... I found that they retain their shape completely! I wore them at first just as leggings. and I love the ankles with my Louis Vuitton LV mini monogram booties, they are a beautiful material, I wore them maybe 3 or 4 times... then I wore them to Yoga,.. then I took them on Vacation with me... wore them 2 times shopping on two separate days. I have never had a problem, no pilling, no stretching out.... I love them just as I did the very first day I tried them on in Lulu. I wash them on fine hand washables in my washer and hung to dry... the fact that I wore them 4 + times and then to yoga before ever washing them and still had no stretching out. I bought my regular size that I do in wonder unders, I probably could have sized down. But I stayed with my normal size and had no issues. I am 5.6 tall, 117 lbs , and bought the 4, I will now try the crops, as I love these pants!
I wear my Lulu clothes for taking care of animals, they wash up week after week, the newer clothes I wear for street style and Yoga and the ones I have had for years get retired to walk dogs and care for animals , they get hair all over them and are washed a couple times a week and hung to dry, they always go back to their shape, the grove pant are my go to pants for exercising clients. I can not say enough about these clothes and allowing me to do my job while I look decent and am comfortable, breathable clothes ! Thank you Lulu For creating a stylish uniform I actually enjoy wearing!

not so perfect..
I loved these pants, and I mean LOVED, great fit, felt very svelte and comfortable. I was so upset half way through my workout, my pants had stretched so much that I couldn't finish my run as I couldn't focus due to constantly having to pull them up. I wore them once and they have been sitting in my closet for a month, I am so disappointed as I LOVED them when I first tried them on, had I known they would have stretched this much I would not have kept them :(
