Studio Crop *Liner
First time disappointment
Over a year ago I purchased these crops in black. They are great! This year I bought the dune. I wore the them for the first time a few days ago, having saved them for a special occasion. The elastic at the waist was stretched out within the first hour. They would not stay up. They even pulled down my light as air hipster and I have NEVER had problems with those. (That's the only underwear I wear.) I kept having to pull them up and finally had to tie the waist very tight just to make them work. So much for have a clean waistline. (I have three pair of long studio pants. They are all fine, but then again, they were all made prior to this.) Another reviewer said the elastic at the waist is the problem. They are correct. I usually do not pay attention to reviews, but this time I should have. I have purchased hundreds of dollars worth of LULU attire. In fact that is all I wear...... I'm scared now to pay so much for crops/pants again...... These crops fit fine. They were not too big or too small. In the store the waist fit the same as the three pair of studio pants I already have. The elastic is just not the same quality. Please make these pants here in the United States. I have traveled to Southeast Asia many times. One thing I will not buy there is the clothing. The quality there leaves a lot to be desired. Please fix these crops.

Great for running errands, to-and-from gym.
I just bought these pants a few days ago in white. I have never owned white pants and naturally was worried they might be see-through....not these pants! I tried them on in store before purchasing to do a bend-test. I was wearing bright pink boyshort undies when trying them on and I did NOT see my underwear color through the crops!!! My pantie-lines showed, but the problem went away when I wore them with Seamless Nude bikini-style panties...fabulous!!! These pants are light and airy and are going to be perfect for the hot summers we have here in Texas. Love them!!

I love the look of these and they were extremely comfortable until little spikies started to appear around the waistband making me itch and leaving little scratches on me. I purchased these pants maybe a year ago and don't have the receipt or I would consider exchanging them because I see this isn't the issue for everyone.

size down ALOT for dune!
Im not sure what to think here being my first experience with these crops ever...I read the reviews and sized down, got the dune color and could've sized down 2 sizes it seems!!! Im normally an 8 so I went with the 6 holy I could've gone to a 4!!! Im wearing them right now because they are oh so comfortable anyways but I can feel them slipping the more they are worn..what the heck? there is no way in the rest of the world that I can fit a 4! I will keep them since I order online and am no where near a store but lulu really needs to be more consistent with their sizing please cause this is ridiculous!

Size Down & Enjoy!
Both the Dune & the White lined crops are made bigger than the Studio Crops without the liner. I always size down one size in these, seems to be enough. Height is 5'11, weight is 175 lbs, usual Lulu size 10, but for these babies I take size 8. The fit is flattering, hubby is happy to walk behind me while we are walking the dogs, lol. These crops breathe, they are soft, super cozy, I really can't complain. The white ones are not sheer at all, the liner does its' job well. Two thumbs up from me...and my hubby ;) LOL

I bought these in lined in dune. I find my panty lines still show through, and I'm not wearing my grandma's panties! So the lining doesn't hide anything, and rather makes me hot and sweaty! Sizing also seems off. I'm usually a 10 at lulu (5'5", 160lbs, very muscular and curvy), but I bought an 8 in these. The waistband especially seems big.
On the plus side, they are very comfy, super cute and well designed (deep pockets, adjustable hem with drawstring, wide waistband, etc.)

Sizing Slightly Off
I purchase a pair of the Studio Crops in Dune and Black. The black fit as expected and the Dune pair did too, minus the waist. The waist is more roomy on the Dune color and I have to tie the drawstring pretty tight. Oddly enough, they fit through the hips/butt like any other pair.
Love the liner and they aren't see through at all. Great pair of crops minus the waist being slightly big.
For reference I'm 5'5", 130 lbs. I can wear a size 6 or 8 in fitted capris (depends on the sheerness of the material) and wear a size 6 in Groove & Astro pants.

Flip flop worthy....summer must!!!
These crops are so comfy! The lining isn't bulky feeling as you might expect. I find the lined long version a bit heavy, but not on these. I bought the white and am thrilled that the white is quite opaque. No see thru here! I am 5"5, 148 lbs. I wear 8's in the studio crops and fulls They are perfect! Just ordered the dune as well :)

i live in these crops!
I bought my first pair of study crops just a month ago and I now have 3 pairs in different colors. They are the most comfortable crops I've ever worn. I found going down a size worked better for me. I'm 5'3" and 160lbs and I'm built with a small waste and larger through the rear/hip area. I bought a size 8 and the fit is perfect. Definitely recommend these!

Waistband Fail - stabbing pieces of plastic
Has anyone successfully owned a pair of dune crops without the plastic spikes coming out of the waistband? I am now on my 3rd pair - it's 11:20 and I have been wearing them (for the first time) since 9 and the entire top of the band has exposed pieces of plastic stabbing my in the abdomen. I am at the office too so we're not talking strenuous exercise. I want to love these pants, I DO love them if they could just get this band problem worked out. PLEEEEASE lulu get it worked out!
