Rated 1 out of 5 by CJWitten Unimpressed
This is my fourth pair of Lululemon bottoms, and I must say, my confidence in this company has unfortunately faded. Huge quality issues with these crops and previous pairs have deterred me from making future purchases.
I bought a pair of crops last year in November that I've worn a decent amount and really loved them. However, in August, I noticed they were starting to show signs of small of holes in the seams. I was disappointed that the crops I loved so much didn't even last me a year for the price I'd paid.... but because of this, it was time for a new pair.
I do not live near a Lululemon store, so I ventured online. I love crops with pockets, so I purchased this style from the "We Made Too Much" Section. I knew it was a bold move, given the return policy on this section, but I didn't want to spend the same amount as I had on my other crops that only lasted me 9 months for $89 plus tax. I was hoping to save a few bucks, and in return, get a quality pair of crops that would hopefully last this time.
Unfortunately, after wearing these crops for this past month, I am very unimpressed with everything about these crops, and I can't justify shopping online at Lululemon in the future because of these disappointments.
First, the fabric on these pants is extremely stiff, which does not make workouts comfortable. Additionally, the material is not at all moisture-wicking. It honestly feels like plastic wrap has been wrapped around my legs when I'm wearing these pants. The pants are the same size as my pair I purchased last November, yet they don't stay up on the waist when running (loose) but they are very tight on the legs. The only way they stay up is if I get sweaty enough, which I will, because this fabric does not wick the sweat! This fabric does NOT feel like Luxtreme; I have 3 other pairs with Luxtreme. This fabric feels cheap. Additionally, strings are constantly unraveling at the seams of these pants. I am honestly unable to wear these pants while doing any high intensity workout or run because of the wicking issues, uncomfortable fit, and cheap fabric.
Between the now-worn look of my 9 month old crops, and my discomfort in these pants, I can't continue recommended this brand. As mentioned, I don't live near a store, so ordering online and reading reviews is the best I've got to go by - to those of you doing the same, please don't waste your money on these pants; you're likely better off paying less for a value brand!

Rated 1 out of 5 by blessedmama Very disappointed...
I've had several pair of lulu shorts and LOVE them! I've been wanting a pair of leggings for a while, and I finally got some last weekend. I've loved this pattern and missed it in the tracker shorts, so I was so excited to get it in the crop leggings.
But as excited as I was to get them, I am very disappointed. I wore them all day to my daughter's swim meet. They just don't fit correctly. It's as though something is twisted on the left leg, and no matter how much I trust to adjust/ twist them to fit comfortably they just won't. I had them on all day, and I was incredibly uncomfortable. The left leg just doesn't fit properly.
I don't like to complain, and I truly wanted to love these as much as I love other lulu products...but they just don't fit right.
I was hoping to get a few other pairs of leggings soon, as the weather cools off, but now I'm nervous and hesitant to buy more.

This is a great crop! Love it! I wore this the whole day. Very comfortable fit, it doesn't go down and it fits snuggly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by turbosf This Fitness Instructor LOVES them!
I teach Turbo Kick, a high-impact cardio kickboxing-based class. We jump, we lunge, we sweat buckets. I love these capris because they are flattering, I don't think about them once while wearing, and they're cut perfectly for a woman of average height (I'm 5'6").
Generally speaking, I'm not a luon fan because I carry the bulk of my weight in my gluteals and hips and I need serious compression when doing plyometrics. So the luxtreme tends to be my perfect material.
I own these capris in the silver streak/black pattern and more recently purchased this gorgeous blue lagoon floral pattern! Above all, I think the latter is one of Lululemon's BEST prints, however, I believe they didn't find success with it---not because it was unpopular, but because NOTHING matches the colors! You could just do black and navy, but how boring when you have those periwinkle blues, rich purples and deep greens in there? I have visited several stores, and many online, looked through past styles---nothing seems right. I had to purchase a matching blue tank from another brand. So, Lulu, just a note here, that print is gorgeous! Please make more and design color compliments in other items!
As far as the flap features on the seams, that would be my least favorite element. A good friend of mine was really disappointed by them in her own pair, as well. We already have hips, we don't need any flaps to emphasize them! Would be great for boy-shaped or triangle body types, however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by liftinggirl perfect lightweight crops
I was hesitant to try these when I read some of the reviews, but since I am only 5'4", I wanted some shorter crops that actually hit mid calf instead of at the ankle.
These are AMAZING. The material is lightweight but supportive, stretchy but NOT sheer, and I have a booty! I haven't had any problems with seams being too tight. I'm realistic about my size. I'm 170 and the size 10 fits comfortably.
I do wish that these had anti-stink in the material though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MaverickMom Worst Crops Ever
Worst crops I have ever worn. I just spent my entire cycle class feeling mad about these crops. Why? Because the 6 fits like a 2, the material has no stretch, they are see through, and they are NOT anti-stink. Worse yet, these crops have the sweat wicking power of Saran-Wrap. None. I left a puddle on the seat of the bike AND had to sit on a towel in my car.
I own about 20 pairs of shorts and 10 pairs of crops from Lululemon. I have never written a negative review. However, these crops are so bad that I'm not sure I will purchase anything further from Lululemon until some serious quality control happens.

I actually purchased these pants for hot yoga. I teach a couple of hot yoga classes a day and was looking for something comfortable and QUICK drying. These do just that. They're a great purchase and I look forward to picking up some more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Treeshd Terrible
I have many pairs of lulu pants that I love but these are terrible! I knew it from the moment I put them on! They're skin thin and feel cheaply made! The print naturally stretched over my knees and looked faded, worn and transparent! The fit was okay but felt a little off! I knew I couldn't return them bc I got them on final sale! I wore them to the gym and continued to be disappointed in the pants! I'm a big sweater and normally feel okay in lulu pants but not these! I looked like I sat in a puddle on my butt! I was completely embarrassesed! I have never seen anything like it by any brand! I will never be able to wear these cheaply made pants in public! $70 out the window:(

Rated 3 out of 5 by gator Great fit and loved the length - I am short so most lulu crops are too long, but these were perfect length. However, I ended up returning them because the pockets were very small and strangely placed. I could fit my phone in (just) but the pocket placement made it stick out, which was uncomfortable and looked strange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by destinedtobefit Great fit
I like the material on these ones, not compression, they just fit nice. Not having to fight to get them on. Love the pink and purple stripes, actually very flattering on.
