In The Flow Crop II *Pattern
Everything is good EXCEPT See-through!!!
When I saw these went on sale, I thought it's a good idea to buy a black pair to replace my regular in the flow crop from 2 years ago, huge mistake! They are sheer when I bend I saw my black underwear, my skin and the white tag, which means there's no way I can wear them outside. BTW, being 5'1.5", 106 lb, I got my TTS 4. I believe there's nothing to do with the size, and I even had a little extra fabric behind my knees. I'm very disappointed since everything else was good, fits like a second skin and when I compared it with my old itf, it has slightly higher rise, which I like. However, I don't recommend it due to this see-through issue, unless you plan to always wear it under a butt-covering top. I'm stuck with this since I got it from WMTM, but I suggest other buyers to try this out in the store first before purchasing it online!

I ordered these in June. Initially I thought they were AWESOME! They fitted and felt so amazing. I went to Ireland where we did a lot of walking and they started fraying at the seams and have started coming apart. I ordered this product to replace a different type that had done the same thing...It's a little disappointing to have this happen a second time. At first I thought that it was just my size (I'm a size 6 and I teach dance) but I have two other pairs of Lulus from 3 years ago that I haven't had a single problem with. Overall, I can't say the quality of Lululemon is what it used to be, and for the amount of money you spend, this type of thing should not be happening.

When I first tried these on, they looked and felt great. An associate checked them as well. The first wear was fine, but after a few more wears the crotch seaming was becoming loose. The pants constantly give me plumbers crack. The other sizes would not fit.
I would not suggest this style.

I bought these about a month or 2 ago...I love the fit...
However, the seams have torn in the crotch and a small hole has already started to form...almost as though the surging hem missed - I cannot wear them and for the $$ I expect better.
I lost the receipt - and cannot bring them back...I'm disappointed as I've always had great luck with Lulu lasting years. I'm sad to say that this item doesn't hold up to the standards I am used to...

NO Elephant knees!
Unlike the In The Flow II this "ITF II Pattern" version does not give me elephant knees! They FIT, like a 2nd skin and are slightly longer than the other version, which cut in to the back of the knee. I must be one of the few who have been living in these crops this summer without any problems. Much better fabric to breathe in, in 100 degree S. TX heat than Luon WUC. Body mapping is for real! Wish they had more dark colors because don't need another pair of black tights (looking at the non-pattern colors with some envy, ahem). Bought Cadet Blue size 6: fit TTS; am 135lbs, 5'5", carry weight in butt and legs. (BTW: The runner-up after ITF Pattern is the Seamlessly Street Crop, which are a tad higher in the waist but about the same length. Got Bruised Berry.) Wish had bought more of each!

These fit amazing; I've used these for running, cycling, spinning and yoga and they don't fall down. I'm an 8 and I tried both a 10 and an 8; the 10 is always too big in the waist; go for the 8 so they don't fall down. My one criticism is I wish these came in a true black to hide sweat; bought these in the dark grey, and the sweat doesn't distribute that evenly. :) Otherwise very comfortable and they look amazing on.

Horrible Crops, Save your money!!!
When I first bought these crops, I was in love!!! I mean LOVE!! They fit amazing, they snugged all the right places and made me look amazing!!! But since they are made out of dollar store nylons they break super easily! It isn't like I put a hole in them, its on the seem and right near my girly area. SO, I was super embarrassed in class when I noticed that!!!!!!!! (BTW, i am a size 4 but bought a 6 for comfort because they were tight, I'm super fit!!! No excuse for breakage) I took them to the store and they said they couldn't fix them because the material wouldn't hold to the seamstresses thread????????????? Ammmmm, what?????? They offered to replace them but had none in store and told me to keep "checking in" to see if they got more!! I own so much from LuLuLemon and to say I was extremely disappointed about this, is an understatement.

All was well until I realized they're see-through!
I LOVED these pants when I put them on. They truly felt like a second skin until I wore them to a barre class the first time. Upon looking in the mirror during the abs portion of the class, I realized I could see the color of my underwear! I was MORTIFIED. These pants are great as long as you're not bending or stretching AT ALL, which really, really stinks. With the price I paid, I would expect a pant that would take this into consideration. I am SO sad! (Note: I am not a stick bug, but I am not overweight. I am 5'4" and 126 pounds and wear a size 8 in Lululemon so I firmly believe it is not because they are too small for my body type).

Great crops but poorly made
Got these a few months ago and LOVED them - I do crossfit and yoga and they were so amazing to move in - loved the feel, loved the look! BUT then a few weeks ago I got a huge hole in my upper inner thigh area and then the seam on the inside of my legs started to unravel...I am so bummed I loved these and for the price I am shocked that they are so poorly made.

WHY DID THEY HAVE TO CHANGE?
Okay so, I got these crops about 2-3 years ago and they were like a second skin. They fit wonderfully and made working out/running errands/living all the more fabulous. They, like all of my traditional/made in Vancouver Lululemon crops did not wear badly and lasted through (literally) weekly washes. HOWEVER, mine sadly were stolen and I had to buy another pair of said crops and have noticed that they leave strange imprints on my calves and are not as long as my previously loved crops. They also seem to broadcast my underwear choice to all of the world (thanks, but no thanks). With that being said, if you could PLEASE make these crops into pant form and trash the pattern on the calf I would buy different pair for every day!
