Astro Pant (Regular)
Total waste of money
I bought these pants in February and I HATE them. They are a complete and total waste of money. They fit okay at first but after being worn for about an hour they loose their fit. I have washed them maybe 5 times, inside out on the gentle cycle in cold water and hang to dry. They are pilling already all over the pants. When I got them they had loose threads at the bottom of the leg as well. These pants are definitely not worth the money. Will never buy again.

received this pants for christmas and haven't worn them very much since there are many loose threads around the waist the the insides of the legs are piling immensely, more and more every time they get washed! would have expected better quality for the price they were

Too much pilling!
I'm sad to say...I've washed these pants 4 times and they're already pilling : ( I wash them by themselves in cold water and I have only hung them up to dry! I have never put them in the dryer. I wear them to the gym and morning classes. They're cute looking and comfy for the gym and the fabric is nice and thick. There is no sheerness to them. I'm just a little disappointed that they look just as old as a pair of Bench yoga pants I bought almost over two years ago! The quality of anything else I've bough from Lulu has been great and I understand pilling is normal with wear... But after only four washes is a little quick. I don't think I will be purchasing this style of pants again.

this is my first experience with Lululemon and I am disappointed. I received an outfit as a gift from my husband and totally love it! I ordered the Astro pant as I wanted another pair to wear and it came as a dark navy and not black, as it appears on the computer screen. I understand that was my fault for ordering the wrong color but trying to order another pair has been close to impossible the past few weeks. I don't understand why there is NO stock to chose from and pants I saw a few weeks ago are now not available!! I don't understand this business plan but to not have product to sell to customers seems a bit odd and very frustrating. I am not sure I will be a return customer.

Not the best
I love lululemon pants and bought a pair last Christmas that are still in perfect condition and the fabric hardly pills. I just got a pair of new lulu astro pants for Christmas and the inner seam is ALREADY coming undone and pilling like crazy. And they are a bit big for me so its not because they are too small. The fabric is just not the same. Disappointed with lulu lately

Still like the products but horrible experience
I've loved Lululemon for years but this is getting ridiculous. These pants are no longer available in tall online, have only one colour option and limited sizing. AND you got rid of the astro crops, which I loved.
Because of this twisted new business strategy we only have 14 days to return or exchange which is NOT ENOUGH TIME if people don't live close to a store.
While quality has gone way down, I still love a lot of products but I don't think I will ever purchase anything from this company again. Sad.

I received a pair of Astro's today and I can see, just by looking at them that the material is completely different from my older pants. These new pants have a shine to them- just looking at them, not even when i had them on. I placed them side by side to an older pair of Astro's that are about 4 years old and you can imagine the difference in material. The older pants have that thick, matte texture that I expected and still wish for...And the gusset??? it literally on my back side. What happened to the diamond gusset? this triangle thing DOES NOT WORK. If you hold the pants up in front of you the diamond gusset is almost in the middle of the back of that pantsOMG- I had to adjust myself numerous times in kickboxing class. That is a 1st. I have worn Lulu pants to do basically everything under the sun and never needed to make an adjustment.
I know Lulu is having some issues and I hope that things get figured out. I used to have to tear myself out of the store because I always wanted 1 of everything in the store and now I find that I go in and browse to pass the time. I'm 5 ft 11" and this is the only place that i found pants that actually fit me. I hope Lulu gets back to basics.

Love these pants! Definitely best pants I have ever bought. Super comfy. I wear them everywhere. Love the waistband and straight leg.

Dune color is too sheer
I gave this product 3 stars because I absolutly LOVE my astro pants in other colors (black, blue) BUT the dune color is very sheer. It is the first lulu purchase I will be sending back. But lulu had great costumer service and helped me to make my return.
I do love the dune color, so if they can work out the fabric issue, I would love to have pants in that shade.

Returning the Dune Colour as Soon as I Can
I own at least one of every type of Lulu bottoms there are, including the original Astro pants, which I LOVE. I tend to wear my Lulu more as everyday wear rather than to the gym, so I was excited when I saw the Dune colour show up online -- finally, a neutral that wasn't black (or almost-black)! I ordered a pair immediately.
I was SO excited when they arrived a few days later, and tried them on right away... and was completely disheartened!
THEY ARE COMPLETELY SHEER. (Note: The pictures do not do it justice. WAY worse in person!)
I know people have complained about this with regard to lighter colours for the Wunder Unders, but I did not expect this for my Astro pants. And I don't mean a little see-through -- you would have to have literally NOTHING underneath them, and you'd still be praying that a freckle wasn't showing.
The other completely dissatisfying thing was that these pants claim to be made of Luon, as the majority of my other bottoms are. Needless to say, I knew from the second my fingers hit the fabric that someone was stretching the definition of Luon verrrrrryyyy far. The material is ribbed, scratchy, and feels incredibly stiff and cheap. The only comparison I can think of is an extremely thin version of a discount-bin, polyester corduroy. It's very strange and very uncomfortable.
These pants will be going back to the store the minute they open tomorrow morning, with no hesitation. The really unfortunate part is that I'll probably shy away from buying any more pants, because I have more dark ones than I can stand, and the light ones have now proven time and time again to be unwearable, across all styles.
