Ebb And Flow Crop II
I really like how these crops do not have the elastic in the waistband because it would often give me an unflattering belly roll. However, the seamless material stretched out a lot, to the point where I can't wear them because the waist is too big. I would suggest that you go down a size at least, or two. They may fit a bit snug at first but they will stretch out a lot. I've only worn them a few times and now they will sit in my drawer. I'm very disappointed :(

I saw these online and fell in love with them. I rushed to the store and bought the black and the bright pink, when I put them on in the natural light in my house I was so upset to see how sheer both colours were. I took them back for a size up hoping that would fix the problem and had the same issue. Make sure you do a bend-down test before going out in public!

I'm dying to have this crop but when I visited the store yesterday and tried on size 6, I was so shocked that it's so see through. A lot of comments and rumors about LL that it's transparent and see through. I didn't believe on all of those things until I see it myself. I tried size 8, still see through.

Wicked fit !!!! :)
Love love love these crops!!!!! I love them so much I bought the grey and black one. The only problem is the crotch is wearing thin on them. Which I would say for the price and owning them only a few months is very sad :( I still have a pair of lulu pants from 12yrs ago and they still are looking great. So very disappointed in the thinning crop.
Otherwise would rate these as excellent !

These work for me!
I bought these in the blue (inkwell?) and they are fabulous. No sheerness, no pilling etc. I just don't know what to say about some of the other reviews other than perhaps there is a consistency issue?
Maybe I have an old batch??
The fit is amazing, and soooo flattering. The lack of an elastic band in the waist is what usually draws me...no muffin top :-)
I also purchased these in the crops, which I returned. The leg opening, just below the knee, stretched out which caused the crops to ride up and bunch around the backs of my knees. Looked ridiculous! Maybe a tighter opening or a bit longer would work?
In any event, these are the most comfy and flattering lulu pants I have ever owned. I truly hope that the sheerness/pilling issue can be addressed as it would be a shame to see these get discontinued.

I haven't even washed these yet and the butt area is already pilling terribly. I bought these crops in mint green and fell in love with the beautiful vibrant color, but I can't wear these out again with pills and bumps all over the butt area - it looks disgusting. And it's not like I went spinning for 10 hours either, I just walked around in them and went to yoga. Deeply disappointed. Did lulu move their manufacturing plant or something? Please fix this!!

TOTALLY SEE THROUGH!
I bought the Ebb and Flow Crop in the black and absolutely loved them. I tried them on in store in the pop orange and they are completely see through! To the point where you can actually see the pattern and colour of your underwear! I'd say steer clear of these pants if you don't want to show your bits. I never minded paying for the quality that LLL used to provide but I have been quite disappointed with their pants lately.

Fantastic... For me
These were my first lulu purchase in a VERY long time due to quality issues. I am 5'5" and normally 118lb. I prefer size 6 in astros and size 4 in WUC. I am post partum, and still carrying 15-20extra lbs. i got a size 6 deep indigo thinking this was a size DOWN for my current larger size, and that sheerness might motivate me to slim down. Well, they are not sheer at all at my current bigger size. In fact, they even hide panty lines of my large white granny panties in downdog. The waistband camouflages my extra belly skin from having a giant baby. I also like the longer length. These crops are fantastic, and a nice change from my usual black.
These lose a star for inconsistency. I have seen light colored e and f crops and flow crops on e*ay, obviously direct to warehouse. Maybe the problems are with certain batches or colors? Also they smell odd, even after 2 washes (cold, regular, hung to dry, washes with regular clothes). No sign of pilling, zero camel (which i currenlty suffer from in my size 4 WUC with the old diamond gusset, showing me that sizing up is a possible cure for the camel).

I picked up the inkwell colour and have only worn twice. I just noticed after touching the very soft fabric on my bum that there were these lumps forming...I haven't even worked out in them yet just wore around the house and went out for coffee...I can't believe I spent full price as I refuse to pay Lulu's atrocious prices anymore.
Not impressed and was not surprised there was a recall.

Awesome so comfy!!
I bought these but with a design on the top and they are my favourite pants from Lu lu lemon. They are well fitted and super comfy. I wear them to dance, yoga even soccer and baseball.
