Run: Rise And Shine Pant
Wonderful material, hugs your body
I am 5'6", 124lbs, with a lean build and these pants fit beautifully. I tried on both the 6 and the 4 and bought the
4 because I like a more compressed fit. I prefer this material over the Luon because in my experience it lasts longer. It doesn't get the pilling or pick up lint the way the Luon does, and it just feels so wonderfully smooth and sensuous. I wish the pants came in more colors and I hope for summer they make some sexy little dresses from this material.

Great pants for all fitness activities
Reading previous reviews, I agree with some and disagree with others.
I do agree that these pants are a bit long for those of us vertically challenged people (I myself am 5'3"). I found the pants came to my ankles and had they been any shorter, I wouldn't have gotten them. However, they are loose at the bottoms and can be rolled up (exposing relflective strips!) to make capri style pants.
I don't agree that the fabric is "shiny". While it may not be the typical fabric most lulu pants are famous for, this fabric is ultra soft and non-see through and not shiny. At least in my opinion. I love the way it feels on my skin.
I do agree that they do not sit ultra low. They almost came up to my belly button. perhaps on a taller person they would be considered more low-rise. Despite this, I still found them comfortable in all physical activities. (I use it as incentive to lose that little bit of jiggle!)
Overall great pant. I would live in them 24/7 if I could. I do agree that there aren't enough colours! Would love to seem them in a petite version.

I absolutely love these pants. I would wear them everyday. I am not a runner however my workouts are pretty intense and these are great to workout with.
They are true to fit. I ordered a size 4 and they fit perfect.

Love these pants. I was a bit weary before ordering because of some of the reviews, but they are wonderful. The fabric is not shiny at all, it's just a bit less mat than regular Luon because of the Lycra, thinner too but definitely not see-through. Perfect for Spring and Fall! Very-well made, nicely hemmed, nice details on the seams, overall great fit. Even though they say "low rise" I don't find them low at all, and the length is perfect for me, barely mid-calf (I'm tall), and the bottom is loose, which is what I wanted. I didn't want something that would hug my legs too tightly, and these are ideal! Nice and stretchy in all directions, you can really move in these and the fabric bounces right back!! Beautiful!

I love these pants. I find them very flattering and not shiny. They have great quality and I love the way they make my butt look. I'm going to get another pair as soon as my size is available!!

Didn't like the fabrication
I liked the idea of the fit of these but didn't like them once they were on. The fabric was shiny and it made them appear cheaply made. Because of this, I did not buy them

Overall, just so-so
I couldn't wait to get these pants and after trying them on today, I was disappointed. The fabric is almost shiny, showing any imperfections in your thighs, butt, ect. The waist seemed tighter than usual, too. I own several pairs of wunder unders and prefer the fit and feel of the fabric to this pant. I ordered my standard size 6 but maybe should have got an 8? The length may be a tad long for shorter people, too. I'm 5'5" and felt maybe an inch shorter would be more flattering. I suppose I could get them hemmed.
Overall, the sheen of the fabric really made me sad, so sorry to say these will be going back.
