Run: Top Speed Crop
Look cute, but...
I really like the look of these crops but I'm also experiencing poor quality with the seams. Wore them a second time and an external seam on my thigh burst! It seems to be just the finishing edge seam that spit, not the one holding the pants together, but they look bad now and I can only image that this is only the beginning. Got my usual size 8 which fits with room to spare. I don't understand how a $90 pair of pants is so poorly made, what's up Lulu??!!
On a side note, the zipper pocket is really small, fine for a key and change I guess but nowhere to put even a small phone in these pants.

My New Favorite Crop, But One Problem
I usually run in the Inspires, or the Run for Fun crops (which I prefer because of the open pocket design on the sides), but I've had a terrible string of bad luck with the Inspire seams coming apart. I thought I'd try these because they are a little shorter, and I'm a sucker for the bright coral zipper on the Deep Navy. Judging by the other reviews, I may have similar seam trouble in the future, so I can't help but wonder if it's an issue with the Luxtreme fabric.
They didn't budge during my five mile run, and they were perfect for my super sweaty bootcamp class. I really appreciated the placement of the zippered pocket because it didn't leave me with a bruise on the middle of my lower back after I did ab work on the floor. The rise hits right under my belly button, and the wide waistband is extremely flattering. I usually wear a size 8 in Lulu bottoms (5'7", 150lbs) but bought a 6 in these because I was having trouble with my other crops falling down while running, and thankfully have not noticed any sheerness problems.
The only drawback? The zippered pocket is too small to hold my phone and, unless I'm missing something, the only other pockets are the two key ones in the waistband. C'mon Lulu. If you're advertising these as a run crop, I expect them to have a pocket that fits a smartphone.

I got these pants as a present for my birthday! I absolutely love them! Like the Inspire Crops, the luxtreme is extremely comfortable and supportive. I have two pairs and have worn them to cardio classes as well as my personal training sessions with wonderful results of comfort and performance. I can't wait to take them out on my runs this weekend.
What I love about them is they are comfortable, fit true-to-size, moisture wicking and amazingly flattering! I also like that these are slightly shorter than the Inspire Crop as I am a 5'1".
Also, the colours and patterns are so beautiful!

not for sweating in
I own three pairs of these crops (black, star crushed coal black, and good vibes deep navy black/black)... most recently purchased the good vibes deep navy black/black because as a shorty (5'2") these crops hit in the right spot and are super comfortable... and you can never have too many pairs of cute crops.
Imagine my horror the first time I wore this particular pair to crossfit and sweat started showing in the crotch area, making it look like I wet my pants. I was so embarrassed and had to keep pulling my shirt way down in hopes that no one else noticed. Hate that I spent $100 on workout crops that I can't workout in.

I really liked these pants. However, I have only had them for a month and the stitching is coming undone. I bought a size 4 and I am 5'2 and 106 lbs, so the fact that the sticking is coming undone is not because they are too tight.

Great crop except
I got these for a mother's day gift and immediately had to take'm out for a run. Half way through my run I needed to tighten them up and the draw string broke. OMG I was so upset :( not cool - other than that the crops are amazing and feel very good on. If only the cord had survived... :(

I got these in the navy and black stripe. I wear a 4 in lulu pants and these fit in a 4 for me. The pattern pants in lulu aren't as stretchy as the plain black ones. These fit a little tight but the pattern is so cute. I worked out in these and they were comfortable. I would like them slightly longer but I am 5'8" so maybe I am too tall for these to hit mid calf.

Great crops for petite gals
Love these so far - they are actually cropped length on me as a petite girl (5'2") hitting me just past the knee. I have worn them on a bunch of runs so far, including several over 10 miles. My only complaints are that the fabric can bunch behind the knee and cause chafing (but really only at long distances, and then well, everything hurts anyway), and I still wish that the seams were a little more lady-parts friendly. I don't like to run with undies and there is a little discomfort in the placement of the seams in these (and for that matter all) lululemon pants. It hasn't caused any major issues though! Will probably buy another pair of these crops because I can already tell I do not want to wear my old spandex shorts anymore!

like them so far
Ordered these crops in the multi iridescent color and so far am in love. I love the color and it matches so many of my tops (I'm a pastel type girl and I haven't a pastel that this doesn't work with). I am a solid size 6 in Lulu and bought a 6 in these. They do fit very tight partially because I have very athletic thighs, but I do not think I would have wanted to go to an 8.
So far no issues with odd seams or otherwise.
Have run twice in them and upon touching them mid run i can feel the sweat on them, but they dry very quickly. I like the butt pocket and other pockets in them.

Didn't Wash Well
These are my new favorite pants for running and spin class but I was so sad after I washed them the first time the waist cord came halfway out of the pants. Now they are impossible to tighten in the waist and not usable. I have already recommended these to friends but I'm not sure I would in the future.
