Presence Pant (Regular)
Extremely comfortable workout pants and the bright blue color is great! Nice and long with a supportive wide waistband. Love the interesting design details too.

My go to pant
I recommend going up a size to avoid the "sheer-ness". I am 8 but went up a size, and glad I did. I still like the fit, they are comfortable and I wear them all the time. I will be purchasing again if they come out in new colours!

Perfection from Lululemon
I have recently ordered the pant in dark navy color, and loved it so much I just had to have the bright blue one. It is perfect. I bought it in size 10, am 5'5" in height. It's great for vinyasa flow yoga, Zumba, and athletic conditioning classes I am taking. It is very flattering, holds me in, has a forgiving waistband that stays put during exercise, and not too long - in fact, I like how it scrunches on my ankles. As far as beach Blanket Blue version...some reviewers noted it was sheer, but I did not find them any more sheer than any other athletic pant, so am a bit puzzled. I tried the pant with black underwear bottoms, and did not experience a problem. A nude-colored brief or maybe a thong (I am personally not a fan of the latter) would work equally well. I am very pleased, and highly recommend this pant. Yes it is price-y, but it washes so well w/o attracting lint, plus retains its shape. Just fab!! Wish to see more colors (maybe red, hot pink, green - and definitely black!)

This is what love feels like
I never thought that I would be a consumer of this bright blue, but these are a wonderful addition to my spring/summer wardrobe! I'm honestly in love with these pants. they're fitted all they way to the ankles, and are loose at the ankles for a lovely loose and relaxed feel. I cannot wait to go to my next practice in these! I haven't checked for the sheerness, but I usually stay in the back of the studio, so that doesn't bother me too too much. I don't just wear these to yoga class, I wear my lulu pants everywhere I go!

One problem: sheerness!
I bought the dark navy color in the store. They are very flattering and the fabric feels great. However, I read a review here that warned of sheerness in the color I purchased. Accordingly, I checked my pair to see if they had the same issue. Sadly, they did! When I bent over, you could see right through the fabric and the tag even showed through. FYI - I'm 5'2 and around 100 pounds so the pants were not tight on me to begin with.
These pants are great loungewear, and I may keep them for that purpose. However, if you are going to use them for yoga (or some other activity where you'll be bending) I recommend checking the pant to see if your pair is sheer. I assumed mine would not present a sheerness issue due to the dark color and thick/dense-feeling fabric, but I was wrong. I may have gotten a bad pair, but I wanted to confirm what another post'er brought up. I wouldn't want one of my fellow lulu fans exposing her bum unintentionally ;)

Bought these pants in the navy color. A nice dark color that is not black!
Love the waistband. I've been hoping Lulu would offer some pants with a softer waistband.
They are a bit long but that is what I like about them. They can gather a bit at the bottom and sometimes I roll them up to either angle length or crops. Really like the versatility.

want to love them but wish they weren't so sheer
I usually go for the wunderunders but I already have a bunch and I loved these pants when I tried them on in store. The fit is great and I'm a huge fan of yoga pants that cover my ankles so that I don't lose my grip in class. I wore them to a super sweaty heated vinyasa class and they were awesome...didn't have to adjust them and they didn't restrict my movement. BUT...after class I noticed that my underwear was completely visible through the pants.
So basically these are nice pants to wear if you plan on not doing anything athletic or sweaty. I can't return them since they've already been worn and sweated in, but I'm not sure what to use them for now... (FYI I'm 5'8" and bought my usual lulu size 4 in the dark navy color, and my panties were also navy blue)

my favorite lulu purchase to date
These are amazing. I cannot think of a better word. In the month that I have had them, these have become the new staple in my wardrobe. They look good with boots, flats, sneakers, EVERYTHING. They are so comfortable, and the extra fabric at the bottom ensures they will never be too short. I was considering getting them hemmed, and I might eventually, but for now I don't mind the long length. For reference, I am 5'7 and own a size 2, and there's probably about 4-5 inches of extra fabric from my ankle. I ordered the black...navy is sadly sold out :( I will def buy more colors if they are made in something more neutral than "beach blanket blue" which is kind of limiting. Perhaps maroon or charcoal? Make these a lulu staple!!

The Presence pant is my new favorite! It is a bit higher in the rise, without being too high. It is perfect for any sport where you are frequently bending down or over, and don't want to have to worry about covering your behind or back. Perfect for yoga, and coaching sports.
