Groove Pant (Tall)
Don't Recommend These...
I love the fit of these pants but I experienced similar issues as other reviewers: pilling, lint problems, loose threads.
Luckily I was able to return these to the store for a store credit.
Very disappointed in these pants!

Not the quality I was hoping for
I really do love lululemon products, and I am always pleased with my purchases, but I was very disappointed in these pants. I have only had them two short months, and after the first few weeks I began to notice pilling on the pants. On top of that, I have just noticed three tiny holes on the right backside. Not worth the money

Good fit...terrible lint collectors
I love the fit, do NOT like that these pants attract every piece of lint, hair, fuzz and carpet fiber...I hand wash my pants! These pants look cheap bc of how they are always covered with lint. I even roll them off several times a day. I called to report the issue and the customer service rep told me that this is just how they are made and to just carry the lint roller with me....really!? When you spend $100 on pants, I should not have to carry a lint roller. They should warn you about this issue before you spend the money on them. Very disappointed ....my hubby works in the fitness industry and we have shared our story with many gym members...

I used to love my pants but they are thinning, pilling and looking shabby. Sad state of affairs for my formerly sassy pants.

Not worth the $100
This way my first pair of Lulus. All of my friends wear Lulu and I finally broke down and spent the $100 for a pair of these. I'm 5'11 so the length is wonderful, however after only a few washes, they began pilling terribly. So so disappointed. I never wear them anymore due to the sheer fact that they look awful. I paid half for my Zella's from Nordstrom and have never had this problem.

poor quality, want the old pant back!
I discovered lululemon several years ago and immediately fell infatuated with the groove pant. The coverage was phenomenal, the fabric was high quality - and the pants took at least a year to pill. The time finally came to replace the pants, so I did - the fabric is thin, a bit sheer and pilled on the second wash. Super disappointed. I will pay ~$100 easily for the high quality pants I bought a few years ago but the new pant quality (in my opinion) is not worth the $.
Very disappointed, will need to find a new go-to.

I think the sheerness is gone
Since I'm about 5'9, finally there are pants that are long enough for my legs. I had to get them hemmed just a little bit, but it was nice to have the problem of my pants being too long instead of too short. I wore my usual size 4, and there was no sheerness. In fact, the material felt very thick. I have high hopes that Lululemon's high quality material is back...

Thin and plain
I am so disappointed in these pants!!! There are NO colors in talls! LULU, you need to fix this!! I'm 5'10 and can never buy regular lengths in pants. It is so aggravating and obnoxious that tall girls can't get the new, cute colors. I was so excited to try them on in store, only to find that they were extremely thin. It showed so much cellulite. And the full luon pants in Tall (while there are more color choices) are WAY to thick, even in winter (I live in Cali). I'm over getting pants at Lulu. They're overpriced and poor quality.

Better than most
I know a lot of people are complaining that these are different and not as good. I am fairly new to lulu, so I don't have that complaint. I can say I tried on more than 20 pair of yoga pants before buying these because I did not want to spend the money on them. I think the fabric feels great (I really hate the full-on luon though) and they look better on my backside than any other competitor. I also appreciate the snug thigh/knee and wide flare. I only wish the rise was lower or a fold over option was available as I do not like the mid rise. The length is amazing, its too long for me (5'10 130lb) but I cuff them once and with sneakers its not annoying. Very few competitors offer the long inseam which is why I ended up dropping the cash on these. I'd rather cuff (or hem) than show my socks every time I sit down. I exhausted myself trying other brands, I bought these twice and returned them because I couldn't swallow the price... and in the end bought them again and kept them. Mid-rise aside, I find them amazing.... I only wish they didn't attract so much lint!

Not the same anymore...
I have been wearing Lulu for years. Recently, I went to purchase the new Groove Tall pant. I was very disappointed to see that they took the flare away from the top of the knee. They are now skin tight to my calves, which is not flattering. I won't be buying the new Groove Tall pants.
The lady in the store said we can always hem them, too, since I have to get the tall for my height. I said, yes I know. But then I'll lose even more of the flare since they are straighter through the leg now.
Please bring back the old ones :(
