Groove Pant *Full-On Luon (Regular)
so much pilling
I have had these pants since the beginning of January and they are ALREADY PILLING! Although I wear them maybe twice a week I'm expecting so much more from a pair of $100 pants.

After hearing great things from friends, i decided to purchase a pair of these. After less than a year of wear (didn't even wear them once a week) they began pilling like crazy and they became an absolute lint magnet to the extent that it was embarrassing to wear them in public. Sticky lint rollers couldn't even get the stuff off! I emailed the company and they gave me a replacement pair and were very helpful. I've been super careful with this new pair and have followed the washing and care instructions but the new ones are STILL pilling. For $100 pants, they should be better quality. I think they should get rid of the Full-on Luon and go back to making them the way they used to. It's such a shame that they have so many problems because the pants truly are cute and comfortable. Probably won't be buying again.

Great laying around pants
These were my first Lulu purchase about two years ago and they are one of my favorite pairs of pants?I wear them all the time! The only downside is that they attract dog hair like CRAZY, but it comes out in the wash. They still look like new and I've had no issues with them.

Loved the former Groove Pants
As a dancer/dance instructor, I lived in Groove Pants. I wore them to teach preschool dance, teens and adults, I wore them to take Pilates, to run, to rehearse, and also to drive my kids to early swim practice. The style was nice enough to wear out to a restaurant with a sweater. They were great pants.
Yesterday I went to buy a replacement pair and was DEVASTATED to learn they had been discontinued. The Lululemon shop assistant recommended I try skinny pants. Obviously the design team has not considered that skinny pants, a fleeting trend, are not appropriate for all settings or for all bodies. I'm a size 4-6 and in great shape, still I wouldn't wear skinny pants to teach tap or dance, I can't wear them to work on casual days, they don't look that flattering on many regular body types.
I love Groove Pants and would wear them every day if I could. I guess I have to buy Revelation pants at Athleta which have a nice enough fit. I prefer the old Lululemon material which lasted and felt great after a day of rehearsals.
As a teacher I frequently recommended the Groove Pant to others - in fact I was drawn to them by a fellow dance teacher. sorry to see Lululemon succumb to a fashion whim rather than the long term customer who can help grow the brand.

I am so disappointed. I ordered these pants in the herringbone and they were completely SEE-THROUGH!! The best part is that I had to pay for shipping to return faulty merchandise. I would of had more coverage working out in underwear.

Terrible Quality Pants, Very Disappointed
I bought these pants for my daughter a few months ago. She's worn them maybe ten times, and there's already a hole in the knee. We washed them the proper way and the pilling is so bad that's it getting embarrassing to wear them. I didn't spend $100 on one pair of pants to have a hole in them and have horrible pilling just a few months after purchasing them. It's ridiculous to spend that kind of money on such poor quality clothing. I've bought her several pairs of pants from Lululemon and I'm very disappointed in the quality of this particular pair. I probably will never buy her another pair of pants from here due to how bad the quality of this pair was for the price.

The Groove pants quality has taken such a inferior stance in the industry now; I remember how stout and flattering these were but sadly the material is very different and friends can notice the difference. Yes, they will work for a Yoga pant but why spend this much when I can go to a local sports store get better quality for half the price.
LuLu Lemon once was the top seller in it's game now, well, they're no longer in the "groove." And I'm so sad! I really used to love the products, I still love the people. I don't know why the owners/CEO's, staff are not improving the quality anything since I hear the same across the continent (Greed??). But the quality is no longer there. I miss the old LuLu. :o(

Love the pants, not the price
I bought these to replace my previous pair that lasted me 5 years. I really do love them. I decided to splurge, paid $98 2 weeks ago, and now they're on WMTM for $74? Not impressed, on a student budget I really could've used the extra cash.

bring back more GROOOVVY pants
I've been wearing these since 2006, yes almost 10 years! I probably had one of the first pairs. They used to NOT pill at all and the A was at the bottom of the leg. Also I wore regular and now I have to wear tall.
Yet I still love them and I still wear pants that are over 5 years old and they look good.
Please bring these back in TALL! More Groove pants please. In fact more non legging pants. I know everyone loves leggings these days but I still love a wide leg pant. Everyone looks good in groove pants.
Also I'd LOVE a brown pair.
