Run: Pace Tight
Love love love these pants, they feel like nothing is there and they don't fall down. I am a big fan of the Run Inspire Crops, I own about 4 pairs but I think I found my new favorite run pant. Not to mention my butt looks great in them, or so I'm told!
I have them in hyperstripe Bordeaux Size 6, athletic build, weigh 128 lbs

All time favorite pants.
This is my first review ever. I have been obsessed with lulu since my freshman year of college and I am a senior now. I had to leave a review for these pants because I am in love with them. I wear them almost every day because I can't get enough of them. They magically make your legs (and booty) look really good. I wear them to class, to the gym and even to go out. They can be dressed up with cute sandals or boots and a nice top. They're so versatile and they are not sheer at all. I am about 5'7 and I weight about 120 lbs and I ordered a size 4. They are tight but comfortable. They do not fall down when I run either, they always stay in place. These are always my go to pants, I can't seem to wear anything else now and they are so worth every penny. Even though they are a little pricey, you won't regret spending the money because you will wear these babies every day. Since I am a college student, I am very careful with where I spend my money. I am so happy with this purchase! Again, they are not sheer at all...I did all of the bend tests and asked many different people if they were see through and they're perfect!

LOVE THE PANTS AND LENGTH with one small annoyance
I absolutely love these pants! I bought my usual size 6 in black and they are true to size. Im 5"7 and 130lbs. I've had these for about 2 months and have worn them on many short and long distance runs. The length is perfect to wear during fall/spring running. It keeps your legs covered from wind and cold air but opens just enough to let them breathe and cool off when you start to sweat. The mesh siding is awesome for this as well.
I think I've worn these pants to school and shopping more than I have running. They have a smooth, shiny feel to them and are the best length to wear with a pair of TOMS for a great everyday outfit! I love this.
My only con is that these are the first pair of lulu running pants that slowly fall down when I run. The waist stays at its usual place but unfortunately the material around my legs slides down during the first 1-2km's. I usually pull them up when I start so it's somewhat bunched around the groin area and then don't usually have a problem throughout the remaining km's.
Overall, I love these pants and am happy with my purchase. I had no issues with them being sheer at all.

Like running naked, but legal
I just bought these pants and ran a 10 miler this weekend. They were fabulous. It was like running naked. I didn't feel anything. No tugging, no slipping, no chaffing. Didn't have to adjust the pants one time. They felt amazing. They were perfect for a Midwest fall run. I normally wear a large running pant and fit great in a 10. They hit just above the ankle for a 5'6". I highly recommend these pants. I plan to buy another pair.

a little short
I loved these in every way except that on my 5'8" frame they came up to almost mid calf and I'm interested in having running pants for the fall/winter running season that go to the ankle. Any chance you'll have this product (or a similar one) available with a longer inseam?

Sad -- so cute but sheer sheer sheer
I was so excited about these pants that I neglected to do the bend test at the store -- a few days later I asked my husband to check out my rear and he could read the tag through these pants! Such a shame because they feel so lovely. I bought my regular size 8 that is not sheer in Wunder Unders or other well-made pants.
And of course now I'm outside of the two week return window -- it's been a zillion degrees in SoCal, too hot for pants!! -- so I'm stuck with them. :(

Loved them; stayed up; great color
After much internal debate about whether the color would show sweat (and reading comments on other sites that it did not), I bought these in the heathered deep coal. I am very pleased with my choice! The fabric is incredibly soft/smooth and the color is great. While the "thinness" of the fabric does mean that bright/dark color undies show a bit in full bend, I do not bend over when I run, so I could care less about this. My underwear did NOT show when I was running or when I did some partial bending tests in front of the mirror. Besides, pretty much every pair of spring/summer/fall-weight running tights I own from multiple brands has the same problem. Personally, I really appreciate the lightweight fabric for the purposes of running and prefer it to super heavy fabric that feels ultra-restricting.
Use-wise, I wore these for my 10-mile run this past Saturday and had a 100% positive experience. The fabric did not show as darker in my sweat areas; the pants did not slip or fall down; and I did not have to do any tugging or rearranging the entire run. I also really love the zip pocket for my keys.
I just bought my second pair of these and plan to get at least one more to get me through the fall/ early winter.

Cute running tights
I originally wanted the heathered deep coal color but of course they sold out when I finally decided to order. I tried the size 6 in black on at the store and the first thing I noticed was that they were sheer! But because they fit so well, I decided to order the black heathered wee stripe - just got them today and am happy to say that they are not sheer at all. I probably could've fit into a 4 just as well since that's my usual size in most items but I went with a 6 because of how they fit in store.

so sad it's a little sheer
Loved the red color and ordered my usual size 2 on line. When I received it and tried it on, I immediately felt that the fabric had a little plastic feeling even though the fit was really slimming. What was worse - when I bent down, hard to deny that I could see the contour of the tag... I could have kept these pants since I really loved the vibrant red stripes, but I just couldn't justify the cost of $92 for sheer pants - so back it went.

ADORABLE, but SHEER!
These pants are super comfortable and really cute! The ONLY issue is the fact that they are sheer. I even sized up. I was paranoid the whole time I had them on (I was outside with a my military squadron) and was afraid someone would say something! YIKES! Wish the material was a tiny bit thicker. Bummer.
