Coast To Class Pant *Gingham
love lulu but this is the problem...
i love these pants they are adorable and the cut is cute if your tall i purchased these at my local store which is an hour away! We need more stores in Cleveland. the only issue is i could have grabbed these online for much less. i called the store for an adjustment they said no! i call an "educator" they said no! now i know whay lulu doesn't call it customer service because they don't service customers. i have at least two dozen lulu items and they are pricey. I don't mind the markup because i love the fit and colors and thought that goes into design but it would be really really nice to have customer service that went with it!
Please start a return policy for unworn tagged final sale items! The lulu addicts would only buy more we promise!

Wanted these so bad... until I tried them on
I wanted these so bad once I saw them online but luckily I tried them on instore before ordering them. I loved the length as I have long legs however, the material is too thin or something. They show every lump and bump on my legs, and I don't have very many! I tried sizing up to a 10 from my regular 8 and it didn't make a difference in the legs but just made the waist too big. The fabric just seems different. Sadly I had to leave the store without these pants. Hopefully lulu comes out with another pair of pants that are long like these but with better fabric.

Love these for spring!
I initially bought these in black and love the fit and style. The luon is super-soft, not sheer at all, and fit tts. I especially love the 3/4 length for spring, they look so cute with flats or sandals. They also have a covered seam from the side toward the front that makes these pants special and very well-crafted. I've been wearing them often and like them so much I just bought a second pair in inkwell.
Good job Lulu!

comfortable and stylish
I just bought these, and I love them already. The gingham in blue is a great pattern (the other colors were too bright for my taste). The pants are very comfortable, and I have not seen any issues with sheer or camel toe. One important note: I've continued my lulu one-size-up policy. My usual lulu size (6) in this pant was too tight for the waistline and very unflattering in the glutes. I read another review about it being unflattering and have to agree. I sized up to an 8, something I've done with a few of my other lulu pants, and the fit is perfect. It's still a tight fit, but it is now not just functional but less restrictive, more casual, and wearable in an outdoor setting (as it form fits much nicer and less 'revealing' of the unflattering parts of the lower torso curves). I'm 5'8'' and 130 lbs., slim to athletic (long) build.

less flattering fit than other Lulus
Got these in the mail recently, they are incredibly comfortable and the frond gingham is absolutely adorable. I haven't noticed any sheerness or camel toe issues, but, I do find that this fit is less flattering than other styles of lulu pants. I am 5'9" and a muscular 155lbs (mostly legs, thanks crossfit). I find that this gives my saddlebag/posterior area an awkwardly lumpy look. They're going to be awesome for knocking around the house, but, I think I'm going to limit them to that if I can't lean out my legs anymore. lesson learned--- dark colored athletic pants only!

Great for spring!
Got these pants in the mail yesterday - the first day of spring and thought it was appropriate. Love the green gingham! I am usually between a 10 and an 8 in lulu bottoms and after reading reviews warning about CT, I decided the 10 was for me. It was a great choice - the fit is good, didn't mind the higher waist. I am 5'3" so they did fit between a crop and a pant for length, but I turned up the bottom a bit and I like the look. A the WMTM price - I think these are a great buy!

So cute, so comfy
I purchased the green gingham pants in a size 6 (one up from my usual Lulu size), and I love them. I was obsessed the minute they hit the stores, and thrilled when they went on sale. I haven't noticed any sheerness or camel-toe issues, though that possibility is part of why I didn't go with a 4. (It fit fine, but with a lighter-color pant and the 6 also fitting well, I decide to err larger.)

I just received these crops in the black/white gingham. They are adorable and the length is perfect. I'm 5 ft 6, 125 pounds and usually I take a 4 but decided to risk a 6 and it was worth it. I think with crops you don't want them too close fitting. There is a bit of CT but as I recently found out from my BF and other males, it's not a bad thing!

I love these!!
I love these pants!! I did not like the fit or fabric in the blue gingham, but I tried the black ones on anyway. I'm so glad I did. The fabric feels a little different, more like the lulu I am used to, and the fit is fantastic. They fit snug like the wunder unders but are a little longer (mid calf to just above the ankle, I'm 5 7') and there is a little room at the bottom. I really like the ribbon detail running down the leg too. They are perfect for yoga or pure barre classes and then running errands afterwards. I usually wear a 4 to 6 in lulu pants, and the 4 fit perfectly. I highly recommend these! I like them so much, I ordered the inkwell too!

I picked these up on sale at my local store...and they are Ahhh-mazing! I don't have CT issues like others have mentioned, however, depending on your body type, I could see how these could accentuate any place that doesn't quite fit correctly (...like your crotch).
Anyway, these are super comfy, no muffin top, and the navy seams down the side are really flattering. The girl at the store who was helping me said that the gingham has less stretch, and to size up, however I saw neither of these to be true when I put them on. For reference, I'm 5'5" 140lbs, wear a comfortable size 8 in these. And for my short-ish stature, these actually hit my ankle right about where they do on the model in the picture.
Overall a great pant for yoga and lounging afterwards!
