Groove Pant (Tall)
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 :(

I really want to like these, but I just can't. This is my second pair of groove pants do develop a hole, while my wunder unders continue to hold up like new. I don't even wear them very often which leads me to believe it is the quality, not wear and tear. At my local Lululemon store I was told outright that it was my fault that they ripped, and that I must have not taken care of them. This is 100% not true as I take the time to hand wash and hang dry all of my lulu.

Not happy :(
I miss the old groove pants. I got them as a gift and would normally never buy Lulu only because I am a mom and my kids come first. I bought a pair a few months ago and this material did not hold up as well as my old ones. I had them get a hole in the thigh and one behind my calf. I used to buy lulu headbands and tanks too but since the groove pants are my fav I was considering buying another pair but then saw a review portion, and I remember how sad it made me spending 100$ for them to rip. Wouldn't recommend them anymore,unfortunatly.

In LOVE with these!
So this is odd for me as I never write reviews, but I just had to for this one. I have only purchased tanks from Lululemon, but I took a risk ordering these pants and I'm totally 100% in love with them so far. I have purchased an $80 pair from a rival company and they just didn't wow me nor did they fit my shape right. As soon as I got these in the mail I returned the other brand pants immediately with no question which ones I loved.
For reference, I am almost 5'11'' 135 and size 6 fits great. Probably could have gotten away with a size 4 for a tighter fit as these aren't all that snug on me. The luon material is also incredibly comfy! If I could pick one pair of pants I had to wear for the rest of my life, these would be them.
The length of the tall pants is incredible! I'm so grateful for such an amazing fit. I will continue to buy the Groove pants in tall for as long as they're made. Lulu, please never stop making these!!!
