Run: Pace Crop
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, 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!

Super stylish but the fabric just sucks
I absolutely love the style of these crops. The pockets in the waistband and the zip in the back are great for on the trail. The pleat detail by the knee makes it special and the ventilation is a true selling point... However the fabric sucks. I went up to a size 8 from my normal 4-6 lulu pant range to combat the sheer fabric and because the pants actually GAVE me dimples! I always thought fitted workout pants were supposed to make you look like a more toned better version of yourself, these don't, perhaps if my normal size wasn't so sheer. As for quality I've had numerous strings poking out from poor quality stitching which is completely unacceptable considering I spent over $90 after tax on a pair of crops when it was all said and done.
Btw: all my lulu gets hand washed or I machine wash gentile cycle in cold water with no fabric softener then lay flat to dry.

Great Crops, please LLL make more colours!
I purchased these crops in the we are from space white combo in a size 4. This is my usual size and I find they fit TTS. The 3 main issues I have read in other reviews are sheerness, non compression and that the show cellulite. I DO NOT see any of these issues in my pair. I think these crops are wonderful, I just did a spin class and these crops were comfortable and they stayed in place, no riding up over the knee.
