Run: Pace Crop
Great running crops
Since I liked these crops enough to buy three pairs of them over the course of two-and-a-half months, I have to give a 5 star rating. The fit, style and details flatter my small athletic frame (5'2", 112 lbs., size 4). I have worn the crops for long runs, tempo runs and very sweaty intervals. They function beautifully and stay put the entire time. Compared to my marathon crops from last year the pace crop fabric is slightly thinner and more extensible, which is fine with me. I have no issues concerning quality with the pace crop. I have the wee stripe white/black and wee stripe indigo/inkwell and they are not sheer. I also have the burning yellow which are somewhat sheer so I always wear a pair of underwear that blend well with my skin tone and don't show unsightly lines. I wear the yellow pace crops with the black split singlet I bought last year and black running shoes -- the combination is gorgeous and feels oh so good to run in. Every time I wear the outfit my husband remarks how sharp I look :-)

nice and lightweight
Got these as an alternative to always running in my inspires. I like the inspires, but since I'm only 5'6, the length is a little long. I like that these hit just at mid-calf on me. They did ride up a bit on my run, but I have muscular calves and the only crops I have that stay put are a pair of Nikes that I got a year and a half ago that they don't make anymore. Not much compression in these, but I like the fit and how they feel like wearing nothing. I got the white/wee are from space print and have not experienced any sheerness.

good for running
I bought these in the white stripe print. I'm 5'5" & 140lbs and usually a six in lulu bottoms, and these fit TTS. They are a little sheer - I wore some bright prints undies and tried down dog and you could definitely see the print. BUT, they're fine with nude/white underwear or a thong. The material is thin, but it's made for running, it should be! Don't wear running crops to your yoga class and you'll be fine.
I picked these mainly for the detailing on the butt- super cute. One star off because I would have liked the waistband to be a little higher, but they're great otherwise. I love the mesh below the knee and the pockets are nice, too. I can slip in a few dollars, house key, and my transit pass and it's great.
The Run For Your Life crops are better, but while they're not around, these are your best bet.

Best. Crops. Ever
I absolutely loved these crops! I had bought them in the purple stripe colour they had. Normally I don't go for the bold colours, and diagnal stripes, but this pair was very flattering. I am 5'4 with runners legs, so I was very happy with how these looked. Ended up ordering another pair:) Very true to size, and stretchy in all the right places.

I love the way it feels and light. I'm 5'2" -115 lbs and between size 4-6 in LLL and 6 fits fine.

Love the mesh panel and how light they feel on. Great for work....

Love, but sheer
Love these, they fit perfect and are super comfortable. I have them in the pink, which the material is a little thin therefore be careful of what underwear you are wearing!

I purchased these crops in 3 colors the pink, orange and blue/white mixed, size 6. I normally wear a size 4 in LLL, but for these I went up to a size 6. No big deal. I don't need my work out clothing to be extremely tight, restrictive, act like Spanx or perform some sort of miracle on my thighs or bum. I need it to perform, wick away my sweat, not stink too much, withstand hundreds of washings, and look girly and attractive if I happen to run into the market after the gym, a run or bootcamp. LLL has hit the mark with these crops as they do with most of their products. Keep in mind that certain fabrics fit differently and reveal flaws (which we all have), some of us can't wear clingy silk jersey because it shows where our little excess fat pockets are...and that's why they created photoshop.

Beware of certain colors...
The we are from space white combo is great! I also have the black w fresh teal and those are wonderful as well. However, the pinkalicious is sheer, shows cellulite, and seem thinner than the others. It's too bad too bc they are a very cute color!
Lulu, please make these crops in a light soot! I'm loving that color right now and a pair of crops in that color would be awesome!

have loved all my lulu gear...except these
I absolutely loved the style and color of these. The hot pink is a great color. However, they are very sheer - especially when wet from sweat! Also, mine showed a very strange dark sweat stain on my bottom when the sweat dried. I think these crops are very cute but do not recommend the pink!
