Groove Pant *Full-On Luon (Tall)
incorrect product description
I have ordered these pants for myself & was very happy with them. So, I decided to treat my daughter to a pair for her birthday. She is built like me, tall, slender with long slim legs. The "Regular" Groove Pants are not quite long enough, so we order the "Tall" Groove pant...inseam listed under product description states that they are 35 1/2 inseam. YEAH, happy dances all around...until the pants arrive & they are only measuring 33 inseam. I spoke with a young lady when I called Lulu's 1-800 # & mentioned the issue with her. She told me that she would look into it & would get back to me a little later that day. Well, it has been 4 days later & I still have not heard a word back from Lulu! My #1 question is, who does the QUALITY CONTROL checks on the items being produced to ensure that they criteria is being met? +We tried them on in the local Lulu store & the 2 pairs that they had in stock for the Groove TALL were both measuring a 33 inseam (?)

Please change the rise/waist
Firstly, at 5'10 I love the length of these. I have to cuff them once but I don't care, too long is so much better than too short. I love the fit from the rear, to the hips, to the knees, to the great flare. Seems everyone got on the skinny/boot cut wagon and no-one makes a nice flare anymore. I love flare. My only complaint is the rise. I prefer a very low rise that doesn't dig into my love handles. I am thin, but a tight waist band still creates a bulge. I really, REALLY wish Lulu would make these with a roll down waist band like the skinny will, or just a plain, no tie, waist that folds over. Then everyone could choose their rise and be happy. I have one pair, I am 5'10 128lbs and size 4 is probably my correct size but I had to go up to make the waist more comfortable. I won't be buying another pair unless the waist get a foldover option. I just don't wear them enough because of the rise, which is unfortunate because they look amazing everywhere else.

I am 6'2" and have have super long legs. I've always struggled finding yoga pants long enough until I ran across these gems. I ordered a size 6 and they fit great and are super cute! The quality of these pants are amazing and totally worth the money. Thanks lulu for helping us tall girls out :)

I like them, a lot
Fit like a gem in my normal size 8. I'm 6'0 and these are more than long enough. The full on Lyon is definitely lighter weight than the normal material and wicks the sweat away very efficiently.

I want to live in these.
I bought these pants months ago and was a little nervous about the reviews I'd read, especially in comparison to the price... I have to say, my expectations were far exceeded, thank goodness! The first thing I appreciate is that these are available in tall sizes... I'm 5'11" so it's nice to not be victim to the high-watered yoga pant for a change. Also the rise is perfect for me... I'm not the skinniest but these fit nicely (I sized down 1-2 from my usual size) and they never roll down. The fabric, which was my big fear, turned out to be fine. It's fairly sturdy but vey comfortable. In the months I've had them, they've survived my W/D (I usually wash them in small loads with like colors/fabrics and I was the pants inside out ALWAYS). No visible signs of wear yet. Maybe very slight pilling? But I'll say much less than my other pants (of any fabric), if at all. Overall, I'm very pleased with these pants. I would live in them if I could... I've bought a couple pairs since and honestly could never have enough. Glad I took a chance on these in spite of some of the criticisms.

why all the complaints?
I am confused by all the bad reviews of these. The quality from Lulu the past couple years has been inconsistent lately, but with these I find I actually like them better, and while maybe now quite as soft, they are totally opaque and seem like they will hold up much better than regular luon. I frankly wish I could replace all my old grooves with this material! Please come out with the Cadet blue in tall!

I just bought these pants two months a go and they are ALREADY showing little BALLS on the hips!!!! I've only washed them 3 TIMES!! And no I didnt wash them with fabric softener. I cant believe I spent over $100 on these. And they did nothing for me at the store I got them from because I cant find my receipt. I am a long time customer of Lululemon and I just dont feel like they care about us anymore.

I have a pair of original groove pants which are amazing. A few months back I invested in another pair to "grow in to" during my work out off season. I started wearing them and they are horrible, fuzzy, they have way less support that the originals and its devastating. I had found the perfect product but now the new fabric is nothing like what I fell in love with. Please bring back the original fabric!

miss original Canadian-made lulu:-(
My lulu groove pants from 9 years ago look better than the ones I bought a couple months ago. There is simply no comparison in quality. My old ones made in Canada have it and the new lulu pants don't. There are all sorts of fuzzy pieces around the inner thigh on the new pants.
I won't be buying any more sports bras either. I have the Ta ta tamer in two sizes but neither one fits properly. I am a 34 DD and have never worn a more painful bra. Both the 34 and 36 DD have tight, thick, and inflexible bands. But the worst part is how the cups do not cover whole breast. Instead, that seam you see that lines the cup, cuts the side of your breast.

I ordered 2pairs one plain black one with the blue stripes. One pair too short the other right length but too big. Very disappointed as I have 6 other pairs that are all the same, not impressed.
