The normal size falls off me
They look great, the fabric is nice and design is original. However I went for a run and after about 2 mins they were falling off me, i had to stop and pull them up. I had to cut my run short and go back home and change. The size I bought was the usual Size 6 i always buy, I have 4 pairs of pants from Lululemon (one is even size 8) and I don't have to readjust any of them at any point in my training. So quite disappointed.

Not as forgiving as other Lulu pants!
I have been saving up to buy these babies for months! I finally walk into the store and only found one pair at a size 10 (I'm always a Lulu size 8) and thought maybe it wouldn't be too bad going just one size up.
Within the first 10 minutes of walking around in them, they were sagging at the crotch, dropping at the waist, loose at the legs. It seemed like I had bought TWO sizes up instead of just one! I think I will have to listen to the other reviewers and buy a size down.
When are you getting new size 6 in the plum/black?? I've been waiting to buy these for so long. :(

New favourite pants!
I love the design of these! They are form fitting and comfortable like the wunder under pants are (another fav!) with awesome pockets on the sides which I am a big fan of. The only thing I don't love about these pants is the little slit at the bottom of the inside of the leg which just sits awkwardly over my ankle bones. But other wise I love them!

Love these pants! They do stretch out a bit like another reviewer said, but I still love them.the grey color is amazing :)

Mixed feelings toward a pair of pant...
1. Love the color combination in plum/blk
2. Love the pockets!!! (please lulu, make more crops with pockets!)
3. INITIAL fitting. Don't wear it for too long though because it will stretch out that it'll start falling.
4. Material feels nice and comfy, and keep me warm.
1. Stretch out easily. I was on my first wearing, less than half day gone by, I noticed myself constantly pulling it up...embarrassed
2. Stitching came out. Still on my first day of wearing it, at the end of the day I found the stitches came out at the bottom. disappointed.
3. I wish this one comes in a longer length...I am just speaking for myself here. If it's 2-3 inches longer, it would be at a perfect length!
I bought my pair of Avenue Pant in Santa Monica, but I went to the store in Pasadena to exchange it since the stitching came out, it stretched out too easily and Pasadena is the closest to me. The sad thing was the store in Pasadena doesn't carry this style because they are relatively small! So they can't send it back for an exchange, they can only help me to get it restitched, and if I want it to be send back to me, I have to pay $10 for shipping!?
I found that was really annoying. The pants cost more than 100 bucks, and with the first wearing (just normal daily wearing as running errands) it showed with sort like defects...Never thought I'd get a pair of pants for over $100 and start seeing defects right away...
But then I still love this pants...the color, the pockets, the material, and the initial fitting...so I had the store to sent it back for restitching and gotta go back to pick it up...oh, what a love-hate situation!

Flattering but poor quality
I really liked how these pants fit, but after one day of wearing them the threads started slightly pulling out. Also they run a size up for sure so I would recommend ordering down. Unfortunately, I returned these pants because of the quality of the mid-thigh seem.

I was SO excited for these pants! I love the pockets and the detail down the sides of the legs. They arrived in the mail, and to my utter disappointment, they are sheer and unwearable. First pair of lulus that have done this to me.

I personally find these more comfortable than the Wunder Unders, they have a different material and I love them. They do run a size large though and stretch a little so I'd go a size down. But other than that, love these a lot.

I bought these pants last week because I spend a lot of time in fitness gear (instructor) and often in the cold. I have worn these to a yoga class, cross-fit, and an outdoor day of classes (about 50 degrees). These pants will go everywhere. The fabric is ooh lala-really comfortable. The slim cut & high waist are comfortable & flattering. I think they are warm. Not too warm-I did a cross-fit class and I was not over heated (which I really dislike).
Since I'm petite, I need to bring 'em back to have about 4 inches lobbed off (which losses the reflective band, not a deal killer to have them lay correctly). I am definitely purchasing in another color.

Problem with stretching out...
I have several pair of Wunder Under pants and even more pairs of Inspire Crop II and I have never had any problems with the pants stretching out so much. I bought my usual size 6 and they fit fine when I put them on, but, after about an hour they are falling down and the crotch is constantly saggy! I love the pant, but, the fit is not good. I will not buy these again!
