Astro Pant (Regular)
loved my old ones
I bought a pair last fall when I was pregnant. They were my go to pant. They fit the entire pregnancy and I wore them every other day. I still wear them and am pregnant again. So I thought I needed another pair or 2. Worth the price of its all I'm wearing. Well I thought the material looked and felt different so I tried them on today. Very different material from last year which is weird since it is still technically Luon. I'm thoroughly bummed and can't recommend this new version.

Last year, I bought a pair of the Athleta kickbooty pants that I absolutely fell in love with, and I went in search of a duplicate version of them. I went to Athleta to try on the same ones, but they must have changed the material on them, because the fitting was drastically different. I'd tried the Lululemon groove pant, but felt that it wasn't fitting my body type well. I was looking for a pair of yoga pants that would show off my perky booty and firm soccer legs and would make me have a thigh gap. The groove pant just wasnt doing justice to me. One Lululemon worker suggested that I tried the astro pant becuase it was a little bit tighter. I went in the stall thinking that this lady was just trying to persuade me to buy some ridiculously price pant that wasn't going to work for me at all. I honestly fell in love with these pants! In my opinion, if you are looking for nice yoga pants that you want to show off your legs in, go a size down so that they are a bit tighter. I would NOT recommend buying these unless you are completely positive on your size. I am 5'5, 114 lbs, and a size two regular. The length of the pants are perfect and I like that the band at the top is nice and thick. These pants are really worth the splurge. They cost a lot, but they are worth it.

See through as heck!
I asked my friend if she could go to the Lululemon store and buy me the size 4 tall astro pant, since I was going to be at work. She did and she dropped them off at my house and when I got back I tried them on and #1 they were to long (my problem) But most importantly #2 THEY WERE SEE THROUGH! I had read these reviews before I had purchased these but I thought, Lulus can't be see through... they are the best pant ever so there's no way. Well they are. I squated to check, and I could see my underwear (which was white) the white tag in the back and they looked so sheer, and so unlike Lulu clothing. I am so dissapointed in how bad the material and quality is of these. It is totally absurd. So no I basically have to go to a size 6 or even 8 just to make sure my underwear isn't showing for when I do yoga... which is what I thought they were partially designed for. Just unbelievable...

I am.a groove and astro gal. What is all the talk about these two being sheer? You wanna see sheer please go to your nearest victoria secret put on a pair you dont even have to bend over. Who is slamming them. Its crazy who keeps taking pics through the pants. Compare others too before you judge. Im so over it. These are great pants.

Not holding up!
I have a pair of Astro pants from a year ago. Decided to get a second pair as I was very happy with the old ones I have. Boy, I wish I wouldn't have. I have the salom pink/grey waistband. Have had them barely two weeks, and the inner thighs are pilling like crazy. Also, they are not holding their shape like the old pants. These are super baggy around the knees and thighs. I'm very disappointed in the quality. Never again...I think I'll definitely need to buy pants at other retailers until LULU brings back $98 quality. I basically paid for pants (worse quality than Target!) to have a little Omega logo on them.

Love these pants!!
I love these pants. A note to all buyers though, to get nice NO SEE THROUGH coverage, go up one size from the size charts. It amazes me all the hype that went on about the see through material. ANY and EVERY spandex pant can be seen through if you stretch it too tight. I do think that their size chart is slightly off though. I am a 0 or 00 in every other store. I am fit and like things fitted. By size chart here, I should be a 4. But in most items from Lulu, a 6 fits much better.

Piling after only a few wears, not happy
I bought these pants in Sept after wearing them for a month they are starting to pile in the thigh area and the fabric is appearing to thin out. I am so disappointed I was hoping all the fabric issues would have been resolved. Is Lululemon helping customers like us, can I return these?

These Pants Pill
These pants started to pill all around after just two washes (on a gentle cycle and hang dried). This is not the first or second time this has happened to Lululemon pants I have purchased. I've seen this happen to ALL of the Astro, Groove and Skinny Will pants I have purchased in the last few years. I have not had this problem with any of the Wunder Unders or Studio pants.
I am only writing this review after reading a news article that stated Lululemon felt complaints about pilling only came from a "very small number" of customers. I think it is possible that many other customers have noticed this problem and have perhaps just not formally complained about it. I know a few friends and family that have the same pilling issue.
I wanted to note that I have been buying Lululemon pants for several years now and feel that I have noticed the pants I have purchased in the last few years pill much quicker than pants I bought about 8 years ago. In fact, I still have pants that I purchased about 8 years ago and they are in better condition than some of the ones I have bought in the last couple of years. At first, I thought it was because I got a new washing machine, but I later realized the pilling occurred even when using my parents' machine.
Overall, I still think these pants have amazing fit and are extremely comfortable (that's why I continue to purchase them) but I am consistently disappointed that they pill so quickly and therefore look much older and worn out than they really are.

First & Last
I was so excited when a lululemon store opened in Indianapolis. Buying work out clothing online was intimidating to me, so I was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to try them on & purchase locally. I bought these pants & a few other items when I was 8 months pregnant - the top of the pant was very comfortable but like many have said after a few wears they began to pill. I never dried these and followed all care instructions. It wasn't like I was even wearing them more than once a week - they joined a rotation of black work out pants & were only occasionally worn. My cheap Target pants that are a year older than my Astro pants look better than these & cost 5 times less. What a disappointment.

I have had these pants less than a year and they have begun to pill everywhere. I have always washed them properly so that isn't the issue. For $100 these pants should last longer
