We wear these pants on our way to the studio (and in class when we forget our yoga shorts).
why we made this
We designed these pants to keep us comfortable on the way to and from the yoga studio and gave them two-way stretch and a drawcord at the hem so we can cinch up the legs and turn these pants into crops to practice in them in a pinch. The inherently-wicking Swift fabric helps us stay cool and dry.
the Swift fabric has two-way stretch to move with you as you squat and lunge
cinch the continuous drawcord at the hem to shorten the pant into a crop
the wide waistband has an elastic drawcord for comfort
stow your essentials in the deep hip pockets
go ahead, jump around! the hidden key pocket is designed to keep 'em secure
I love these pants. Love. Sadly, the last pair I bought are all jacked up. The waist elastic is all rolled up inside and is starting to be very uncomfortable! Perhaps I got a pair from a bad batch. I had them hemmed, so I can't return them. Sadness! Having recently given birth however they are wonderful for hiding the extra weight I've acquired.

Sporty, without looking sloppy
I have these in black and in grey, and I love them both. I'm 5-3, 130 lbs, and I own a pair in size 6 and a pair in size 4 (the 4s were on sale, and since the 6's I already owned fit a little loose, I took a chance and snagged them). I can comfortably wear both pairs, but on bloated days I opt for the larger pair. I would consider these tts.
What I love about these pants is that I can wear them to work out, and then run errands, so I'm comfortable without looking sloppy. As with most lulu pants, they make my butt look awesome. I'm short, but I just tighten the draw string and it keeps the cuffs from dragging on the ground. I wear these for cross-training, and also wear them to work on casual days. I teach junior high, so I have to be careful about wearing pants that are too tight, and I never feel self-conscious in these around the kids. The only thing I don't like is the panty lines - I'm not a huge fan of thongs, but I do have to wear them with these.

Hate the waistband
I have brought these pants ever since they came out and live in them. Was so disappointed went my last pair came, worn them once and the waistband and curled and won't lay flat anymore. Makes me think that the quality is really going down hill. I really hope that they fix the quality problem before losing too many customers.

Light weight and breathable
Very comfy. I chose a size 4 rather than a 2, as I found the upper waist below the actual waist band to be a bit tight. You can roll the waist band 1/2 way down or leave as is depending on your pelvic height if you choose a bigger size. Of course the hemming feature of Lulu stores is always a plus.

Studio II pant no liner
I love this pant. I have purchased it in 3 colors. It is extremely comfortable. It allows ventilation and lots of flexibility because I instruct gymnastics. I did use the free alteration for the pant leg. This is a nice service to adjust the pant length specific to your body at no charge. I also like the variety of colors offered in this pant.

Not for average height women
Nice pants. Love the drawstring at the ankle but they were way to long. I'm 5'5", a very average height. The sales associate said if I were to hem them I would lose the drawstring. What is the point in offering an alteration service if you can't maintain the integrity of the design? So now all the wonderful things the drawstring design can offer are not an option. Hmmm, I think I should get a discount. Come on Lulu! You are better than this.

In love with the studio pant!!
I just ordered my first pair of studio pants and I cannot say enough good things about this pant. I originally ordered them in a size 8 but they were way too big!! My size 6 fits amazing!! Very comfortable and flattering.
They are made very long so you will probably have to get them hemmed. Since I don't live near a lulu store, they told me to email them a copy of the receipt and they would cover the cost! Thank you lulu I am very happy with my purchase !!

Love, love, love all of my Studio Pant II pants. I have them in almost every color and sometimes multiples of the same color! What I have found now though, is that I need to size down. I absolutely love the bright blue and the seafoam green color and have both in a 4, but really need a 2.
Can't seem to find any 2's anywhere. Will you be re-stocking these colors in the size 2?

Disappointed with waistband
I am very disappointed with the waistband of the INKWELL studio pants. During the past 3 years I have owned 7 pairs of studio pants in various shades and never had any problems. As soon as, I tried on the INKWELL pants there was a noticeable difference in the fit and material. The fit was larger and the material thinner than the other pairs I owned. The waistband soon started to curl on the front of the pants and looks terrible. There is definitely a problem with the manufacturing of INKWELL colour. I would like to know if Lululemon has rectified the problem as I won't order another pair, (that goes for the crops as well), until I do.

Very comfortable, but waistband bends!
The pants are super comfortable, but the waistband bends after the first wear! I'm a little disappointed to spend this amount of money on these pants to have the waistband bend and not sit right.
