Skinny Will Pant *Full-On Luon
I read so many reviews before purchasing these pants. I read some really good ones, some mediocre ones and then the really, really bad ones.
I finally decided to risk it and splurge.
I wore the pants three times. And let me tell you, those pants are my favorite ones in my entire pant collection. I loved them from the moment I first pulled them on. They are awesome.
Nevertheless, I have a slimmer body type. I've read alot of reviews on the pants by people who said that their body types have been put to the test when trying on the pants, and that the pants have failed to satisfy them in that way.
I did some research on lululemon and read some pretty harshly surprising things about the company: that someone at the top of the company has said that the pilling of the pants are at the fault of the body size of the people who have worn them, and that the pants were made for a specific body type.
If the article I read was speaking truthfully, which I'm pretty sure it was, I'm sorry to say that I almost decided not to buy the pants because of the mindset the company was built on. I finally decided to buy them because I really needed good yoga pants. They served me well for that purpose.
I'll end this review by saying that I do not agree with what the person in the company said about people with larger bodies. We all have different body types and nobody should feel ashamed nor restricted about what to wear based on that principle.
The average dress size of an american woman is of between 12 and 14. Based on that information, lululemon should be taking that into consideration when responding to user complaints regarding the pilling of the pants.

Very bad pilling
I normally never write reviews, but I just had to let everyone know about these pants. I have worn these probably 4-5 times and there's pilling between my thighs, on the inside of my knees, on the back of the pants. And lets face it, the entire pant is starting to pill. I regret purchasing these pants. I have many other Lululemon pants, but none that are this bad quality. I payed $108.00 for a pair of pants that are probably as good as target brand. I am strongly disappointed in Lululemon.

Not as good as I expected
About two months ago I bought the Skinny Will in Inkwell. When I opened them out of the package I fell absolutely in love with the colour. Not only that but the pockets are great! other than that I am very disappointed. They looked nice enough to wear to school but the first time I wore them I was yanking them up all day (pet peeve) usually when I spend $100 dollars on lulu it's because I don't have to hold them up! Not only that but after washing them for the first time(I followed LuLu washing instructions) there was so much pilling I couldn't believe it. Needless to say I haven't worn my $100 Lulu lemon pants again.

The quality has changed
I was extremely disappointed upon wearing these pants more than one time. I have worn them twice now, and they are completely pilled in the crotch area. They look as though I've had them for years. I followed the washing directions to a T because of the other reviews I had read. I unfortunately disregarded the other bad reviews because I have an old skinny will crop (4 years ago?) that are still PERFECT and that are my absolute favorite pant. However, it seems that the quality has just changed.
I did, however, love the fit and comfort. I just would never recommend them because of the quality. 2 washes seems extremely early in my wear to have distressed pants.

Not very good quality
I bought these pants not even two weeks ago and they are already starting to pill in the crotch and the stitching on the leg is also messed up. I am disappointed as these are a very expensive purchase and they haven't even lasted two weeks and have washed them only once following the instructions.
For paying over 100 for these pants you would think they would last a bit longer before you started to see wear and tear.
Also these were my first and last pair of lululemon pants.

ordered these pants in the dark blue, and i honestly want to buy them in every other colour possible. they made my legs and (small) butt look amazing, and the first time i wore them i got many compliments from people telling me how good the pants looked on me. i wish all my pants made my legs look this good.

I recently purchased these pants because i loved the shape of the pant. I knew that the luon would pill after wearing it multiple times which is normal due to wear and tear and friction between surfaces. However, I wore these twice and put them in the wash once and the crotch area started pilling!! I am very dissatisfied with the money I spent on these and the quality I received.

Just got my third pair of skinny will pants for Christmas. I love the way they fit -- waist up or folded down. It is great that they have pockets also. So comfortable, can wear them anywhere.

unimpressed with the material
At first these pants were very comfortable and I loved them, I am very athletic however just wearing these for everyday use within a month they had begun pilling between my legs. My older lululemon pants from many years ago don't do that so I am not impressed with this newer version. I feel like for the money we spend on the pants they should not deteriorate this quickly.

I tried these on before christmas and I had never tried on Lululemon pants before. Instantly fell in love and I got them for christmas. I have them in the herringbone. I wear them often and they have been pilling a bit in the inner thigh area, but a pill shaver took care of that. It is a bit annoying that they have already started to pill, but they're so comfy and awesome that I don't mind much. I have ran in them once and they didn't fall down, they were warm, and were comfortable to run in. I've been a bit lazy so far this year, so I haven't given them a big workout test, but I am hoping they will hold up.
