These crops were amazing they look hot on! The fit is nice :)

Loved it all but pilled after one wear and wash
I love everything I've purchased from Lululemon as everything has lasted several months and even years. I was disappointed after these pilled BADLY after one 8-mile run and one cycle (gentle cycle on cold) in the wash. Pretty pricey for pants that pilled after one use.

A bit see-thru, but very comfy!
I tried on the pop orange/bleached coral/black at the store - which I loooooved the look of online...but ended up going with the grey pattern/white ones. These are NOT compression style - you can see every little bit of cellulite under these bad boys...especially through the solid color crops (the print ones help hide the thinness of the fabric, and what's underneath!).
Love that I can wear these all day long and not feel the seams. Obviously love the wide waistband. I wear a 4 in the Speed Shorts, but a 6 in these (I'm 5'3'', 115lbs for reference).
I get compliments on them ALL THE TIME! I wear them to CrossFit and for shorter runs. The crops stay put and are always comfortable.
They're still holding up great after several washes (in aggressive w/d at the laundromat.).

see-through for all activities!
Last week, I tried to return these crops after I noticed how see-through they were on a woman in my kick-box class. When she was stretching you could literally see the color and seams on her underwear. I went out in the sunlight with a mirror and although I wore flesh-colored underwear underneath mine they were just as see-through. When I tried to return them a MALE clerk informed me that these were "running crops" and I wouldn't be bending over in them. Well, how should I tie my shoes? Stretch before or after exercise? Wear them if I have to run an errand? I wear lots of other brands and have never had this problem before. Unfortunately, the price doesn't match the quality and I loved the fit and style.

Great running crops
I really liked these crops. I'm 5'5" with muscular thighs and calves, but smaller waist, so it's not easy to find crops that fit my legs but aren't too big in the waist.
The only thing that I'm disappointed about is the fact that I only bought 1 pair. I have searched all the local stores, and there aren't any more black size 10. Please bring them back!!

I absolutely loved these pants... up until now. I've washed them three times, hung them to dry, and they're pilling already. I'm pretty gentle on my clothes, and haven't worn anything that would cause the pilling. Pretty disappointed

These were my favourite until...
They started to fall apart after two wears. I brought them back into a lulu store (drove out of my way to go to another store) to exhcange them and was told "these can be repaired". I am sorry but when I spend $86+ tax ($100 on pants I EXPECT they won't fall apart after 2 wears and if they do that I will get a new pair). I was then told "we don't have any more black in stock" so it would only be a light colour anyhow so thats why they will be repaired. I agreed to the repair as I needed them fixed if I couldn't have new ones. I was told I could pick them up later in the week or have them shipped for $10. I went back as I didn't want to PAY MORE and wait. The more I think of this the more it bugs me. I spend thousands and thousands of dollars at lulu. Most stuff I keep. Items with issues obviously go back. I hope these hold up now and I having things "repaired" is not lulus new policy.
Anyhow I really loved the style, fit and cut. Very flattering and I like the cute design on the back. These crops are really lightweight. If they came in more black or dark colours(with other colour designs on them) and didn't fall apart I would buy more as they were my favourite crops. For now I will stick to my other favourites (Inspire and Mod Moves) and hope they don't fall apart.
One more note: Don't buy the light coloured ones no matter what your body type is. I've seen 2 girls in green and they are completely see through. I'd never buy light pants from lulu as they are too thin and I don't like seeing my imperfections but for those who like the light pants-this style is not one I'd suggest

I love these crops! I purchased a darker color (gray/black) a few months ago and found myself wearing them on every run (I run at least 3 times a week). I am a short 5" 1' and slim. These are a perfect length for my short stature. The pocket in the back is a perfect fit for my iPhone, and I throw my key in one of the gel pockets. They never slide down and feel like a second skin. I personally love the way my behind looks in these. I love em' so much I bought the bright green and couldn't be happier. LuLu please make more colors!!

I loved these pants and the bright green color, but the material is way too thin. Returning them for something a little bit thicker that doesn't show every little bit of cellulite. Very disappointing because the style and color are great!

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 :-)
