Skinny Groove Pant *Full-On Luon
Very very disappointed.
I fell in LOVE with these pants. They felt wonderful and looked wonderful. I loved the high rise. Bought my first two pairs in the store. Checked THOROUGHLY to make sure that they were not see through and checked with the sales staff as well. As the pants are reversible and double layer, I thought I was golden. I then bought another pair online. I spent almost $300 on three pair of pants for barre workouts. I thought I would wear them all winter. Imagine my horror to find that, after three washings ( delicate cycle, mild soap, cold water, hang dry), the pants were SHEER. I was in the bathroom and could SEE the bathroom rug pattern through the pants. I then put my hand on the indie of the butt and could see every finger. YIKES.
The second issue with the pants is that, for some unknown reason, they have only the back half of the gussett leading to the dreaded camel toes. I am so bummed. I don't think I can return them as they have been washed and worn.

I'm in love!
I just finally got these today! I am in LOVE w/this pair! My first pair of Skinny Wills & Omgosh the best, I'm already obsessed w/slub denim material, works perfectly for these, I even tried it on w/a pair of high heels, looked amazing dressed up! Must keep making these please! It's a whole new level of collection to my Lulu Savvy collection in my closet!

So much pilling
I didn't love these pants even when I first got them. They are way too long. I know that you can get free hemming in store, but I just never got the chance to get out there. After handwashing them once, they started pilling terribly. This shouldn't happen to a pair of pants at this price point. I'm embarrassed to wear them because they look cheap and old, even though I've only had them for a couple of months. I love my Run Inspire Crop and will be sticking to those.

I bought these pants in February of this year and have had no problems with them. They are not sheer at all and I have had no pilling issues. They are so soft and flattering. Obviously they are expensive as everyone knows, but these pants are definitely worth the price. They go well with everything and look dang good.

Now let me say that as an overall rule, I LOVE lululemon's skinny pants (skinny will, etc.). I also LOVE bordeaux drama. That being said, when I tried on the diamond dot bordeaux drama black/bordeaux drama skinny grooves in store the other day, I was very disappointed to see that they are completely sheer when stretched at all. Like, I could pretty much read the hang tag in the back while they were on me.
I know that earlier in the summer a pair of wunder unders was released in this same colour/diamond dot fabric and they had the same sheerness issue - so much so that they were actually pulled from store shelves.
I'm very disappointed in this because I would really love a pair of bordeaux skinny pants but I guess that's just not in the cards this year!

I have been shopping at lulu for several years now and have not had many problems. But the material of their pants has gone down the last year or so and continues to decline. I don't understand how a pair of pants costing me $100 falls apart within a month of use. The pilling is unbelievable and inevitable no matter how careful you are with the pants. I can honestly say I will never buy lulu pants again made out of the luon fabric. Very disappointed because the fit is amazing but the quality is not there.

worst lulu purchase
I have been buying lululemon products for a long time and have never written a review. I usually don't take the time to write them, even when I love an article of clothing. Unfortunately, these pants were such a disappointment I had to say something. I bought these pants and loved them. like I said, I've always bought the same size and never had any issues. However, WHILE I was teaching a class I noticed how shear these were. There I was, standing in front of a room of students and my undergarments were visible. I was mortified. I would have been upset for this to happen with any purchase, but for a pair of pants close to $100 this is unacceptable. I don't know if I'll be shopping at lulu any more given this experience. Very sad because I don't have another favorite store just yet but I can't handle spending good money on poor quality.

My favourite pants since the Recognition Pant!
I absolutely love that these pants have a long enough inseam for the tall ladies. I bought a pair last year and there hasn't been issues with pilling or seams coming undone, so I am about to purchase another pair! I use them for yoga, working out, running, and parkour. I bought a size 4 and they are TTS (5'9'', 120 pounds). Thanks, Lulu!

This fabric doesn't hold up to the lulu lemon standard. Wore them for five hours and they started to pill already. Between the legs is higher risk of that but it shouldn't of happened in 5 hours of wear. I have owned the regular fabric they have made for years now. I took this back to get exchanged for a different pair and I got such a hassle from the employee. Pants should not be pilled in a matter of 5 hours. Dont buy these pants.

Ummm... Don't move too much in these
I bought these because I loved the denim-like fabric and because they are a little thicker, thought they would be perfect going into Fall. BUT, I taught my fusion class yesterday and by the end, my crotch area was visibly soaked. I don't have this with other lulu pants, so I was surprised the fabric was incapable of breathing. So, so, disappointed that I wont be able to wear these to teach and that they are NOT functional and offer no wicking capability ... Wish I could return for the luon fabric...
