tight-knit, moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Full-On Luon® is a high-performance fabric that gives great support and coverage with a cottony-soft feel
why we made this
We're all about embracing change, which is why we've updated the silhouette of our beloved Groove Pant. It's still the pant that takes us from yoga class to the gym and everywhere in between, with a couple of small changes (ch-ch-check 'em out below).
fabric + features
a tight-knit version of our Luon™ fabric - Full-On Luon™ gives incredible support and coverage with a cottony-soft feel
Full-On Luon™ is sweat-wicking, four-way stretch and breathable
we've increased the rise at the back of the waistband to help keep you covered in Forward Fold
we also narrowed the knee by 1" and broadened the leg opening (the "bell") by the same amount
the smooth, flat waistband is comfortable and won't dig in
I am so disappointed with the quality of the pants lately. I follow the care instructions, and I feel like they only last a couple of weeks and then they get stretched out and loose their "look".
At this price point, I would expect them to last longer. I love how they fit new, and wish they stayed like that.

Not the same grooves I came to know and love from the past. The quality of the fabric is thin, feels cheap, not compressive and stretches out. Big disappointment especially at this price point. What an embarrassing waste of money.

Old Versus New
I purchased my first pair of your Groove pants three (3) years ago and they still look new.
I have three pairs of your new Full on Luon groove pants that have been worn once and washed as per instructions and they look old and out of shape. I am disappointed and am leery about buying more. They look old.
I must say that, although I have been defending the groove pant all along, that I am 5'1" and weight 95 lb. I wear a size 2. There is no problem about them being inappropriate for my size. There has been no see through problem but I think the quality of your product has deteriorated and that is too bad because I was enjoying them so much. I thought I had found the perfect pant. Maybe you might consider going back a few years and taking a look at the quality then as apposed to now. From the comments I have been reading many others are feeling the same way. I wonder when quality was sacrificed for ??????????????? The question of what I am is not in your list. I am a fashion conscious casual dresser ad not a yogi or a sweaty generalist, etc. I would encourage you to add other categories. Not all of us are dancers ore yoga instructors. We only like stylish and well made clothing.
I will add that I personally and tired of seeing swiftly tech". It's becoming extremely boring and repetitive and well as the Scuba Hoody".

These are great pants. I have never had quality issues and have been purchasing them for years. I use them mainly for running. The full-on luon fabric is much nicer than the old fabric. They are softer, hug the body slightly more and just look better. I have actually received compliments on just a plain black pair. My only complaint about the new version of the pant, and the reason for the four star rating, is the triangle gusset. It causes the pant to rise up the butt for the first little bit. I never had this issue with the diamond gusset!

I love the fit but the quality
I love the fit and style of the pants. I am 5'3 1/2" (125lbs) and wear a size 24 (lean athletic built). I bought both the groove and Full on Loun in a size 2. However the groove pilled at the knees. Unfortunately washing the groove pair did not fix the issue either. Since this happen with the groove pair, I am too nervous to wear the Full on Loun to coaching. I need pants that will not pill for coaching gymnastics (especially going into a foam pit) and I thought these would work. I guess I will only wear these for going to the gym or running errands. Disappointed since I am still on a search for a pair of yoga pants to coach gymnastics.

I was so excited at first to get these for Christmas--I had heard such great things about LuLulemon products, and honestly, I was not impressed. For some reason, the pants have made me itch every time I tried to wear them--I thought after washing them a few times, I would not have that issue, but alas, washing did not work. Second, anytime I bent over, you could see through them, no matter what light I was in--they were just really transparent, even though I got a size 12 and I normally wear about a size 9/10 (I have plenty of room left in the material, so they aren't being stretched too tightly across my rear or anything). Even though the length itself is right, the flare hits me in a strange place on my leg and just looks odd--almost as if the fit around the knee is just not quite right. I am a standard 5'5" woman, with a pretty long inseam for a shorter woman, and if anything, I thought they would fit better. After all of the fuss to get them, I think I would rather have gotten a couple pair of another brand from Scheels or something--so not worth the price!

good if you can get the length right
I got these for Christmas and was so excited but then a little disappointed... I'm 5'7 and they were a tad too short. I wish there wasn't such a big jump between the regular (31 1/2) and tall (35 1/2). I know they can be hemmed but it's a pain to take them to the store and then have to wait to get them back. The fit is great otherwise. I'm 135lbs, a size 27 in jeans and the size 4 worked best for me. I ended up finding a ruffled version in the store that was a regular with a 32 1/2 or 33 1/2 inseam and they fit great so I was happy. I'm hoping you come out with more of those!!

weird baggy knee
Love the pants, except for the very weird fit of the knee. The flare/"bell bottom" starts too high in the leg, thus giving me tree-trunk legs which appear to be the same width from thigh to ankle (not a good look in my opinion). I'll be keeping these because they really are good to work out in, but I will never wear them outside a yoga class for fear of looking fat.

I have been waiting to get my hands on a pair of these for awhile since my old ones have grown old and worn after many years. Finally went to the nearest location and the staff were so helpful!! Been watching the reviews for awhile but don't see what the negative fuss is about, these are perfect the way they are!! Keep it up, Lululemon! I'll be back for more for sure!

Why only available in regular length?
Why can't Lululemon make tall length available in all the same styles and colours as the regular length? Its not fair!! I would buy much more product if they did this but lots of people, even girls who aren't as tall as I am, wear the tall length. It sucks that taller girls don't get to wear all the cute pants and colours that they come out with because there only available in the one length. PLEASE make all styles available to all girls, its like making all these nice pants and only making sizes 4-8 available so smaller and larger girls miss out.
