lightweight, stretchy and moisture-wicking, this fabric holds you in and breathes at the same time, making it perfect for all kinds of sweaty business
why we made this
When we're training hard on the track and the trails, we want to work up a serious sweat without grime sticking to our legs. We designed these run crops out of inherently wicking fabrics so our skin stays dry and placed breathable Mesh panels behind the knees to help keep us cool when things get heated.

pants won't stay up
I am new to lululemon, but everyone talks about how much they love their clothes that I didn't worry when the sales associate told me about the very limited return policy. When I tried these on in the store I liked the compression on the legs and rear, but the waist was too big. The sales associate showed me the drawstring that would help contour the waist. They were ok the first couple workouts, but have become increasingly annoying as they slide down during runs and gym workouts. I decided today to tie the drawstring a little tighter and now I am stuck in them.... Once you tie the drawstring it can't be untied. I called customer service, but they suggested cutting the drawstring and taking them to a seamstress. This is pretty disappointing. I expected more from these pants.

loved at first but not so much anymore
I was very excited when I first bought these. I do still love them but after only 2 wears and proper washing of them (I followed the instructions from the ladies at the store and also read information online) the stitching in the butt area is coming undone. I am afraid to wear them again as I fear they might rip and then I would have a hole in the butt area. Also, for some reason I have a small hole in the bottom of the left leg where the mesh material is at. Although I like the feel and look of them on, the poor stitching and quality has made me not want to buy them again or any other pant product of theirs.

Best running tights EVER!
So...I didn't have any running tights at all. I moved to Northern Calif two years ago from hot sweaty Florida so I never needed any. I was a shorts only girl. Well, it's pretty cold here so tights were in order. I tried to run in some of my lulu yoga crops I had but they kept falling down.
So I went to my local lulu store and bought a couple pair of these Inspire Crops. WOW. Wow. SO HAPPY. I bought the size 8 but would size down to a 6 in these next time. With the drawstring, I just tightened the waist and off I went. There's nothing better than running unencumbered. These tights are smooth, so comfortable, so perfect.
I would love to buy these in the space print that I've seen. Please keep making these! They are great for those cold mornings - you feel like you're wearing next to nothing but you're covered and comfortable for miles. Love these!!!!

My favorite lulu crops
I have a couple pairs of Inspires and definitely want to buy more. These crops are functional and make my butt look awesome. I love them for bootcamp and HIIT classes. The compression really helps during those annoying burpees and jumping jacks.
For those who complained about sheerness, I would definitely suggest doing the bend over check when you first try them on. In my experience most pairs are fine, but occasionally do you get a sheer pair. I think lulu is investing more money in supply chain management and hopefully this issue will be under control soon enough.

Perfect for runs & the gym
I have a couple of pairs of these and I am in love!! My first pair is a couple of years old and I wear them 1-2x per week, still in great condition. I wear them for running when it's cooler outside and recently I've been wearing them to the gym whe I don't want to wear shorts. They are very flattering, making my legs look long and have good butt coverage. For reference, I am 5'5" and 120 lbs and wear a size 4.

these are my favorite exercise pants (and dog walking, shopping, lounging pant). If I could wear them for work I would! They are flattering and super comfortable whether I'm in downward dog or running with the dog.
Please, please make them in dark grey and dark navy, but with no stripe at bottom or top.

Good fit and style but noticed that it is see-through. Have purchased other bottoms with this fabric and they have not been see through in the past, so very disappointed that these are.

GREAT.....until they ripped...
These were my first pair of lulu crops, actually my first lululemon purchase! I absolutely loved them, they make you look slim and really hold up during running and at the gym. Ive had these for about 6 months now and the lining in the crotch area just started to rip. considering what I paid for these, they definitely should have lasted at least a year, not happy

I love these pants. I do Crossfit on a regular basis, and they are the only pants that I haven't had to yank up mid-workout. I can go for a long run and I don't have to yank at them either. Nice to not have to be fidgeting with myself when I'm trying to concentrate on burpees or whatever else I am faced with that day.
My legs are quite short for my body type and these come up to just below my belly-button as well which I appreciate as it helps to suck in my tummy a bit. Also, camel-toe has never been an issue!

Love everything about this but not for warmer weather. Please make a version for the summer. A "Cropped" Inspire Crop would be awesome. As I have grown to love the higher waist, the fabric, colours and over all style I need it in a shorter length for those long hot days when I don't feel like wearing shorts. Your other shorter crops don't cut it in the comfort and function department like these.
