Run: Proceed With Speed Crop
Comfy & Flattering with Poor Seams!
I had bought these crops back in April from the nearest local store (which is a good six hour one way drive from here). Since I bought them I have enjoyed wearing these crops for almost all of my workouts and have always washed them with my other lululemon pants and tops and either hung to dry or tumble dried on low heat.
I loved these pants in the fact that the length is perfect and extremely flattering for taller or shorter individuals ( for reference I wear a size 8, am 5"6" tall and 150 pounds) and can be either "scrunched up" to rest just below the knee or full length to mid calf. I loved these crops for wearing around to run errands or pair with a cute top for a comfy but cute legging, but they really excelled for working out in. They were extremely flattering in the fact that they don't cut in or give a muffin top and stayed put through the entire workout without having to stop and pull them up or readjust constantly to maintain their comfort. Added bonuses were that they made my butt look great and smoothed out any little problem areas. These crops were amazing while they lasted...
However this morning when I was working out the bonded seam let go on the inner thigh next to the gusset which makes them virtually useless for doing anything other than lounging around the house unless I want everyone to catch a glimpse of my underwear. I looked online to see if I could buy a replacement pair being that they were my staple for working out and running errands, but they are no longer listed online which is disappointing since the pants are only 2.5 months old and I now have a pair of pants that I cannot wear or utilize for the purpose in which I had bought them and I have no local store in the area to take them back to. I expected more from these pants as I have numerous Groove and Astro pants & crops that are anywhere from 2-4 years old that have held up better over the years than these lovely crops did in 2.5 months. I would have loved to give them a 4 or 5 stars based on everything I loved about them, but the seams split open under not so strenuous use...

Love love love
I love these!! I have several different styles of lulu crops and these are by far the best pair! I love the compression! They are really comfortable and flattering. I would trade all my other crops in for more of these. I find them tts. I am 118lbs 5'3". I have not had any problems with them "falling apart" as some of the reviews have mentioned and I have washed them at least a doezen times. I just went to purchase a couple more pairs and was disappointed to see that there is only black left in the larger size :( I hope that doesn't mean that you are fading them out Lulu?!?!! Please bring in more colors in a smaller size!!

Quality is questionable!
hi- i just purchased a pair of these in the navy/blue white and have worn them maybe 2x with hand washing per the instructions. 3rd time i wore them, i noticed that the crotch came unglued! very expensive for the quality not to be up to lulu lemon par... i love the clothing here but this upset me quite a bit!

Disappointed in quality
If I were to rate these crops based on comfort I would give them 5 stars. Quality on the other hand....i'm very disappointed. I bought these crops about 2 months ago and have only worn them a handful of times (maybe 5 or less). I hand wash them and have been very careful with them. Yesterday after working out I noticed a bit of a breeze and saw a hole in the crotch area, the seam came apart. For $98 I was hoping these would last at least a year or two. Very disappointed!

Very upset with sales associate/poor sizing
I want to love these, but because the sales associate refused to let me buy a size 8 and told me I needed the 6 even after seeing how uncomfortable I was trying them on, I'm now stuck with a pair of pants that give me muffin top and camel toe. I've only worn them a couple times because she told me they would stretch out, but I'm so embarassed at how they look. I'm so upset for investing nearly 100 dollars in them and getting nothing in return. Very disappointed. :(

favorite cut and styler ever but they split
I love these pants so much that i have returned 2 pairs and am onto my 3rd due to the glue coming undone in the crotch. Worst part is I ran my first marathon in the second pair and had to give them back in order to get a replacement :(.... I'm almost positive the third pair are starting to come undone already. I am so happy to hear it wasn't because my butt had grown either, but the pants themselves are horribly made. Obviously you guys should stop selling these!!! Please please keep the style though!!! I'm on my third pair for a reason-- seriuosly my favorite style! They are one of your few plain crops that fit amazing without all the frills.... I'd even wear them with a seam!!!

bad 1st impression; love the crop hate the quality
This was my first lulu lemon purchase, I was so excited about them and recommended them to all my close friends when I first got them (in March) now I am completely mortified onto who took my advice to buy these gorgeous $98 crops that little did i know fall apart. The seam on the crotch is completely undone and it has raveled a bit. I am a student and if I would have known my crops I spent $98 on and have taken pristine care of would fall apart in 2 months I would never have bought them. I am so disappointed in the quality. Since then I have bought a tank top and sports bra, will those fall apart too? I just read the review on these and it seems as if it is a very common issue, do you y'all plan on fixing it? I'm afraid to purchase anything else. $98 is a lot of money to throw away, very disappointed with lulu lemon.

Will be returning these
I've had these pants for a few months but have only worn them twice and was unhappy both times. They were uncomfortable during both yoga and spin. I bought my usual size 6 that I wear in Lulu's but these are tight and give me a muffin top. They are also very sheer at the top showing my thong. I was mortified reading the other reviews just now seeing that several people have had the crotch split open. That has not happened to mine yet probably because I've only worn them twice but I'll surely be returning them before it does! I have to say for as much as these cost, I am very surprised that there are so many problems with them. I will definitely stick to my Run Inspire Crop II and Wunder Unders from now on.

I am so disappointed with the quality of these pants. I absolutely loved the look and fit but after a few weeks the seaming came apart in the crotch. Surprised by the quality issue... especially for the amount they sell for!

I loved these pants until they split in the seam. I had them about 6 weeks and maybe wore them 8 times. The store returned them, no questions asked and I am going to try another style to see if I have better luck. They did make my thighs and bum look great, no bumps or jiggle when I worked out! I love the material and there were no sweat marks after working out.
