Astro Pant *Full-On Luon (Regular)
So far so good
I was extremely hesitant to buy these given the current reviews, but I really needed a pair of non-see through yoga pants. I selected these because I wanted a loose fit, but not flare. For washing, it was suggested at the store to only wash similar material in the load, so that's the only way I've washed these, but I use my usual laundry routine: like colors, gentle soap, delicate washer setting and hang to dry. No pilling so far... I've had them for over a month and usually wash once a week.
I find them so comfy! I'm 5'2" and didn't hem them, they are only slightly too long and it doesn't hinder me in class at all. They'd be 5 stars if I didn't have to be so paranoid about keeping something so expensive looking good.

I'm a 100% legging girl but unfortunately I have to wear bootcut style lulus to work. This is the only straight leg pants lulu makes so I'm stuck wearing these over the wider legged counterparts that I am NOT a fan of.
Love the full-on luon material. It makes my legs feel nice and supported when they're tired and makes my bum look good too. Did not find i needed to alter my size to accommodate for a thicker material. I am 5'4, 120 lbs and am always a 4 for pants.
With that being said, the new astros ALWAYS ride up and unfortunately always give me a you-know-what so I am forever pulling at them. I feel that the reason for this is the crossover band at the top. Because each side 'peaks' if you will around each hip, every time you sit and stand it causes them to rise.
I wish lulu would make other versions of straight legged pants...I would not recommend these to a friend unless they were in the same predicament as me.

Quality not what expected
I purchased these pants and have worn them twice. I wash all my lulu in cold and lay flat to dry to prevent the dreaded pilling but even after just two wears, these pants are showing slight pilling. Also, the material seems to be getting thinner.
I am an avid lulu-buyer but lately I have really been noticing a decline in the quality of the products.

Awesome Waistband fit!!
These are THE best yoga pants I own so far!!!
They are also my very first pair of Lululemon yoga pants. I do own plenty of Lulu gear, but this was the first pair of 'yoga' pants I've purchased.
I got my usual 8 and they are perfect!! The best part is the waist band, but that doesn't diminish the other great areas that fit amazingly well - like the butt, hips, thighs....lol The waistband is sooooo flattering and comfortable, not to mention it holds things in place!
I got the Regular length, even though the representative highly suggested the Tall.....think I could likely go either way.
Half an inch or less shorter however, and it'd have to be the Tall for sure. I'm 5'6" btw (with a bit of a booty lol).
Definitely will be purchasing more!

LOVE THEM but......
I bought these pants and had them hemmed in store (great feature)
However, not only did the pants come back too short, but the seam that connects the colorful waist band and pant leg is ripping! It looks like a hole is one day going to form! I have not even had them for 20 days and I am SO upset. This is unacceptable.

I sized up in the pants. Normally wear a 4, went to a 6. I have worn them twice...NOT comfortable at all. Rides up in the crotch area. Not comfortable for travel or working out!!

I have lots of these pants. It is shocking to me how much they have changed over the years. When I first got them I would have given 5 stars, they were the perfect pants. Washed well, didn't shrink, great coverage. They were tight but not restrictive. I find the full on luon to be thinner, not see thru but not the same quality as my older ones. And the last pair has shrunk in length. I really like the waistbands, they are very fun and flattering. I have an older pair in a very dark purple that I love. Sure wish the old fabric would come back.

Most flattering at the waistline
I tend to carry any weight in the middle, resulting in the loathed "muffin top". The Groove pant doesn't work for me for this reason, because the waist band sort of cuts in there. The Astro pant on the other hand, is the best! The V-shaped waist line is very flattering and holds in the parts that need to be contained. I buy it in black, but the colorful waistbands are fun too. Don't ever discontinue this pant!! :)

I first loved these pants and how they seemed to suck in everything..I ran and bought a similar capri style but wish I had waited until I wore the pants a little more as they started pilling after a couple wears in the thigh area..when I went back to the store they pretty much told me it was how I was caring for them or what I wore with them and to go buy a sweater shaver to remove the pills...very disappointing when spending so much $$ on pants. Hoping the quality has improved since then.

I have had these pants for less than a year and the only thing that bugs me is the fact that I wash them the way im directed to. I only wash lulus with lulus and hang everything to dry. I purchased these because I loved the color(grey) which was hard to find and I love how you can wear the waist low. But they sit in my closet every day wishing to be worn but the pilling is stopping me from ever touching them I'm considering throwing them out but its hard to throw out $100.
