In The Flow Crop II
Great Crops, But Don't Hold Up
I was fairly new to lululemon when I got these crops for my birthday in late March. I was a quick convert -- I love the fit and feel of these crops, and they work great for yoga, pilates, circuit training, you name it. But, much like other reviewers, I've had problems with the quality. About a month in, the seem on the inner leg started to unravel; this didn't bother me so much, as there was just a loose thread, and no holes appeared. Today, however, I was incredibly disappointed to notice a sizable hole forming in the crotch area. I spent my whole class worrying the hole would split more, and I can't see myself putting them on again (at least not for a class in public!).
My review: fantastic crops, but for $80, not worth the money if you're going to be replacing them every six months.

great fit.....poor quality
I own about 6 pair of these. and absolutely love the fit and thick waistband. However like most of the other reviews the seams in the crotch of 2 pair are not holding up. there are now small holes in the crotch :-( very disappointed because i love how they feel and fit.

I had been eyeing these crops for months but couldn't decide what color I wanted! When I finally purchased them, I was in love... for about two weeks. I too, like many others it sounds like, think the material is too thin and easily runs- especially around the crotch. I haven't even had them two months and I already have runs in them so I only wear them around the house now. For paying that much, I definately expected better quality!
For the record, I am a frequent lulu purchaser and this is the first piece I have been disappointed by.

Non resilient material/quality
Purchased these for a change in crop material. While the fit around the thighs are comfortable the waistband doesn't stay as fitted, as other reviews have noted. I can only wear them with tops that cover the waistline as it looks awkward. Also the material snags very easily, got a run my first time wearing them. I would avoid purchasing items made with the same material

good crop UNTIL
I loved my in the flow crops, I have three pairs! Until the last time I went to put them on I noticed a huge hole in the crotch?I feel that if I am paying so much for a pair a crops they never should get a hole in them..especially when they're not even 6 months old. I love Lululemon and am a total fan of everything I have purchased so far, until now.

great crop, but?
Okay so after reading a few reviews, I see there are a few of us in a similar boat. Love the fit, style, and feel of these crops, but? the In The Flow II crops all seemed to have suffered the same fate -- a hole in the crotch. Now I definitely wear these often (maybe 1-2x/week for crossfit and occasional run), and perhaps the frequent wear of these crops caused a hole. But I did only buy them last July which would make it only a year and a bit of use. Is this normal?
All-in-all -- I recommend the crop, but the quality seemed a bit lacking.

These are my favorite pants - well they were in the beginning. Then after washing a few times the bottom of them pilled like an old swimsuit and the waist always gets bigger thru the day. And the inner thigh seams always fray. I have NIKE pants I've had for 10 years that still look new - I bought these at the beginning of the year and I'm pretty disappointed with the wear. I wash all my clothes in cold water and hang dry, too. I did write customer service and they were super nice and told me to return them...but I've taken too long to do it - and honestly I would just want to order the same ones because they are so cute for the first few washings but I don't want to be disappointed again.

poorly sewn seams, comfort of the pants is mislead
I bought these to use for yoga. I usually wear a size 10 or 12, so I bought a size of each. After wearing the 10s for a while I decided to wash them and give the size 12's a try. The 12 fit a little loose after a yoga class but I continued to enjoy them- though I now prefer the size 10. After washing and wearing both sizes, they both have visible wearing at the seams in the crotch and the inner thighs. I am very disappointed in these crops. I usually can tell if I am wearing out pants because they may be "too snug" or too small, but this was simply not the case. The material and the stitching just don't seem to be quality. I am bummed, to say the least. If I were to rate them after first couple of uses I would rate as an EXCELLENT, but now they are practically un-wearable...

Too stretchy to stay fitted
This was my first lululemon purchase. After reading lots of reviews, I decided that spending the extra money on lululemon would be a good investment. Unfortunately, I must have picked the wrong pants to invest in. These pants started out perfectly hugging my body--not too tight, not too loose--I even had a lululemon employee help me pick the right size and style to complement my petite frame. Unfortunately, after just a few wears, the knees, and most unfortunately, the waist, stretch out and make these uncomfortable to wear. I can't walk around normally without fidgeting, let alone exercise in them. They feel like an ill fitting pair of pantyhose that keep riding down in the waist. I want to believe that, based on other reviews, this particular pant style is not indicative of lululemon quality, but I'm not sure I can justify spending another $80 to find the perfect pant. I'm very disappointed :(

Fave Leggings, Now PLEASE BRING BACK LONGER ONE
I have these (bought a few months back) and I have the longer version, from several years ago. Considering that every other pant out there has a seam straight up my crotch that drives me inSANE, these are my holy grail pants for when I want something fitted. I have not had the issue that others have with holes cropping up in the crotch, though my newer pair have stretched out a leeeeeetle bit in the knees already- my old pair took a long long time to do that.
But seriously, Lululemon, if you are reading this, the crops are so, so short- I'm 5'3" and they are just below my knees?I am dying for the longer one to make an appearance again. So much more versatile and I can take them out in the winter with the right gear on. PLEASE????
