Run: Top Speed Crop
First off, I love these crops. They are the perfect length for someone shorter (I'm 5'2"). The fit is great. The waistband is more flattering than the Inspire crops and it makes the backside look great. However, the stitching started to unravel after 2 hand wash cycles. Fixable, but disappointing nonetheless because I've run hundreds of miles in the Inspires with no unraveling.

So bought these pants in black just the other day and wore them to the gym. They fit awesome I do have to say and were super comfortable. But and its a big but I found myself a little self conscious in them when I was working out cause of the way some people were looking at me but I didn't know what it was (I thought it was in my head). That was until I started stretched and I noticed that these pants show sweat!!!!! And not in the its not a big deal way, it looked like I had peed myself!! I was mortified.... Do not buy these pants! I can't wear them now because I would be waay to self conscious so what good are they to me now.

Watch out for the zipper
I bought these for longer races (15k to half). I do a run/walk pace. These are really comfortable, stay put, and fit my body well. I've used them in 90+ degrees and cooler weather (60s) without issue. The only issue is when I do the power walk portion of my races and swing my arms, the zipper really tears up my hand. So, I have to make an extra effort to ensure that my hand does not brush my side which is rather distracting.

My favourite running crop
I have bought a lot of Lulu gear but have never felt the need to write a review before but I love my Top Speed Crop a lot. I bought these a few months ago and just ran a half marathon in them and I still love them. They are don't stretch enough that they stay in place and have a compression quality to them which I love. They don't rub anywhere and once I put them on I don't worry about them for the rest of my run, even on my long 2.5 hr+ runs. If I had a complaint it would be that the bottoms of them are a little tight. When I take them off sometimes I have a little line around my calf. I have pretty muscular calves but if your calves are REALLY muscular you might not like that aspect. They are also a little warm when I am running in super hot weather. Luckily that isn't a problem where I live for very much of the year. I never buy two of the same item (can?t really afford it) but I might actually buy another pair of these.
I am sad to see other reviews saying theirs are starting to unravel. I will just have to watch mine close and hope that doesn?t happen.

I bought these as I am instructor and teach everyday. I wore these a couple of times, trying to give them a chance and they kept falling down and would not stay put. I am a size 10 normally with Lulu and these are awful. I love the material and colour but can't wear them.

Just Right in Every Way
I too was looking for a replacement for the Hop To It crops which I love and these are just right. Fit the same as the HTI crops, tts size 6 for me, I'm 5"1" and the crops end just below my knee. They're light weight and not too hot but with plenty of compression in them. Slightly higher rise and they stay put, no hitching them back into place. Perfect for cardio and weights...everything really.
And a bonus I snagged a pair of the hot pink on WMTM :)

love it but...
Love these crops. They are super flattering as I am a curvy girl and the lux keeps you cool. Not really sure if I like the free flowing ventalization and slippery feel but I'm getting used it from being a luon lover. I love the pants, but try finding a top to match these babies that doesn't ride up while you're working out. Been through a million tops and very little available other than luon or light luon. Bought two pairs of pants, and five tops that just don't stay put. Suggestions? Some compatible tops to complement this pants would be great! Thank you!

Next to Naked
These babies are SHEER. I thought I was imagining it - I mean, I have a pair in black and when I bend my knee, I see right through the fabric. I tried to shrug it off - it's just shine, not sheer - so I got a friend to confirm with the rear view. Uh, yeah. These don't EVER leave the house. The only person who needs to see this much of me when I work out is my husband. Total disappointment and waste of money.
