Run: Pace Tight
Color Bleeding Nightmare!
My friends often say that what I need is an intervention as I am clearly addicted to lulu everything! These pants, however, were a huge disappointment! In fact, I would suggest anything avoiding anything in this pale pink/coral color! I have a pair of speed shorts that I love, however they are giving me the same issue! The waistband on my speed shorts is bleeding, leaving it looking faded and discolored, but the Run: Pace Tight is far worse! The bleeding is at every seam! Along the waistband, down the side seams, at the mesh seams near the calf! Not only that, but it's ruined other clothes as well! I washed them alone at first, but after a few washes and color bleeding, I figured it was over, so I threw in a few other things with them and now those are pink too! What a nightmare! I don't know what's going on with this color, but it's changing the way I feel about colored anything from Lulu....

Bring these Pants Back!!
These pants far exceeded expectations for quality, comfort, fit and style. I bought the full length black color with green neon side stitching/waistband. They are incredibly flattering and slim out my curves as I am more bottom heavy. I am 5'4 and 120 lbs and I bought the size 8 on sale but if available would have preferred a size 6 or even a size 4 (fit appears to be fuller than other Lulu pants). The length hits right above my angle and is perfect for all seasons. They are not sheer at all in the black color. I am keeping my fingers crossed that these pants come back in the black colors w/accent stitching as I will be sure to purchase MANY more!

I bought these before they went an sale and bought a second pair when they did. Love! I'm 5'8" currently 150 lbs, normally 140 lbs and a consistent size 8. These are very true to size and amazing for gals with wider hips/ thighs. Very slimming.

I picked these up recently from the "We've Made Too Much" section, and hadn't tried them on previously. The risk paid off, because they fit beautifully, and are super comfortable for running and gym activities. I always love mesh panels for breathe-ability, and I haven't noticed any transparency. All around, great staple for running.

Good fit, but sheer
I was excited to get these running tights. I love the fit, but they are sheer. I can see my underwear even without bending over. I did not buy them too tight, so I was very disappointed that they were so sheer, especially since these are my first pair of running tights from lululemon.

disappointing quality decline :( ...
... to say the least. after reading reviews i was confused - my two pairs that i've owned for 3 years are longstanding champions in my closet because of the wonderful way that theyve held up during many track and cross country seasons and their QUALITY - so why were people complaining? i had to see this for myself, so i went into the store. i tried on a few pairs thinking maybe the sheerness had to do with the color. but alas, it became obvious that Lulu has thrown away all its old ways of quality and replaced it with really cute stuff thats quality is equal to that of Walmart workout clothes. these new pants are sheer and visibly thinner than the old ones. while trying them on they even snagged my watch! i want to buy more of the old lulu that holds up for years and years but where's a gal to find it anymore? its certainly NOT in the stores or online!
i miss the old lulu. for the price, people should be getting it and not this new material!
ps. the same goes for the wunder unders. comfiest leggings on the planet but hold up terribly. that and the fact that they are called wunder unders leads me to think maybe lulu intended them to be pjs

flattering, functional, a tiny bit sheer
I have the pants in black with blue trim and regularly wear them to the gym. I am 5'6", 125 lb, wear size 4. I have larger calves and find a lot of pants or crops make my calves look larger, but not these pants! They are so flattering.
I do find them a tiny bit sheer when bending over or stretching (not see-through though). I am pretty sure I'm wearing the right size. I find the drawstring unnecessary.
When I tried these in navy with yellow trim, I found the navy just a bit too sheer for my liking. Black was ok though!

Comfy, cute, and fun
Despite review(s) i saw about these leggings being see-through, i bought them in pop orange/bleached coral and i love them. i got a 4 just like any other lulu leggings, and they are super comfy and lightweight and i love the fact that they have a front pocket and back zipper pocket. i wear them for my camp counselor job, for working out, and/or just for lounging around. i don't find them to be see-through, but i certainly wouldn't wear my animal print thong underneath them. they may be sheer, but certainly not see-through to the point where it bothers me. overall, they were definitely worth the $49 i spent on them, and the bright color makes me happy.

flattering design - not see thru- drawstring..meh
My husband provided immediate approval when I tried on the pink/black pair but the real test was doing some downward dogs and stretching for inversions. I was wearing contrasting panties and had no see through issues. I bought a size 10 which is I think pretty close to my street size - sometimes I can wear an 8. I haven't weighed myself since 1999 but I'd say I have a curvy/athletic build and by no means a skinny mini sort. These tight crops are very flattering and the alternating colours really work well. The draw string slips a bit but I didn't tie it - I did have to readjust a couple of times and I could see that if you live in a humid climate or are running in the rain that the waist my loosen up a bit. I got mine for yoga and wear them with a run make it count tank in parfait pink or black and they look great together. They are thick and feel great when I do yoga - I would not hesitate to buy another pair - especially from WMTM.

If you don't need to bend over these are for you!
I have bought many pairs of pants and crops from lululemon based on the fact that their quality was unlike any other. It seems in the past year that it has become so thin that it's just ridiculous. I tried on and bought two pairs of these. Little did I know, when I went to train for a day of squats and strength training ect. how sheer they were. I went to the store and wanted to return them because quite honestly I bought two pairs of pants at $92 that you can't do anything in. When I went in the staff was so rude. After explaining it there were three of them and all said "I don't want to explain this again".. "you take it away"... "no you explain it, I just did to another customer". as they proceed she says that these pants are meant for only running. No bending over, just running. She also stated that when running no one will notice how sheer they are. WOW!!! At $92 these pants should allow me to do anything. Guess for my next workout I'll wear one pair of pants for stretching, change into these for running, then change back into another pair of pants for stretching. Seems logical right?
