Power Up Crop
Great look, 2 issues
I love the colour of these (beaming blue), but the inseam is already starting to look a bit chaffed in between the thighs and Ive only wore them three times. The rise is also slightly too low for me but I can still wear them comfortably.

loving these pants
So I listened to the reviews and sized up from my normal 6 to size 8 and i'm really happy that i did. I'm 5'2, around 120- 122 pounds. I love the feel of the fabric, super comfortable, great for lounging around and nice enough to go out and do errands. I did get them hemmed a little bit (like half a cuff length) for a more flattering look. I bought black. Would love to buy another color.

Love the Power Up Crop! The fit is great! I am 5'11, 165 lbs and the fit is great. I ordered a 10 but I think an 8 would have worked as well. The material is really nice and smooth.
I have a booty and these crops make it look nice. My man is not disappointed! The crops hit me perfectly and hugs me in all the right places. Love LULU!!

Nice Crop. Better when hemmed.
I initially ignored the Power Up Crop due to the loose leg bottoms. I liked the low rise though so tried them on in store at one point and confirmed they could be hemmed. I liked the low rise, the quality of the sliverescent luon (no sheerness whatsoever), the fit, and the seaming details.
Once they moved to wmtm I decided to purchase both the black and inkwell versions. 5'5? 125 lbs, I am a consistent size 4 in all LLL bottoms (except for a definite size down item like the Still Pant) whether it's luon or luxtreme, and sizing for the Power Up Crop was no different. When I tried them on they were not at all too tight on me, just nicely fitted. In my opinion they are quite tts. I have worn both the black and inkwell versions to non-heated and heated yoga. In non-heated yoga your body generates the heat and this caused them to loosen up, notably at the waist. Of course they also loosened up in heated yoga but the fit was still good. It was noticeable but there was no slipping down and I didn't have to adjust anything.
Photos showing the fit and rise. I did have both pairs hemmed to just below the knee. They're close fitted to the knee and good. I much prefer it over the original length.
Both pairs have had been washed and worn a few times and I have no issues so far (and hope it remains that way).

I purchaesd these after reading the reviews and wanting a pair of looser crops versus wunder unders or the strike tight. I did size up under the guidance of the reviews and I have to say I was dissapointed in the fit versus my other lulu items. I feel the fit is amazing in my astro pants and groove pants, even other crops that really improve the appearance of your butt and thighs but these I felt I looked a mess! I would not recommend these if you have any, even a minute bit of love handle or perhaps use them as inspiration to work it off. I will say they are thicker, incredibly soft and great for lounging but I wouldn't sport them out for a yoga class or running until I trim up a bit using my other lulu gear!

These pants are awesome! I love my lulu pants, and these are a new fave for sure. I got the inkwell color, and they are surprisingly soft on the inside! So comfy, cute, and flattering. I was glad I read the reviews recommending to size up. I buy pretty much all my lulu products from WMTM, and I will really many, many, reviews before I decide if/what size to order, since it can vary. My WUs size 4 fit me perfectly; these pants size 6 are perfect too. Do your homework, especially buying sale items! Really happy to get these for only $60. Get them while they last!!!

I just bought my second pair of these crops today because I love the pair I have! The material is more durable than other Lulu crops I own and the fit is insane...they make my rear look awesome due to the low rise cut (the inseam seems a little shorter than my other crops). They have the seaming on the back side that I look for on all my pants. Even though they are low cut, you can squat to full depth with confidence!

Super great crops for barre
Typically I don't write many reviews, however I relied heavily on the reviews that had already been submitted because they are final sale. I purchased the black in size 10. I love the thickness of the fabric. Say no to crack! I also think they run pretty true to size. They are a bit lower on the hip than I normally go for, but I don't have a muffin top. Other reviews stated that they made their butts look good, I would have to agree!

I purchased this at the store today, and I am really glad that I went in to buy them! I usually wear a 4-6, depending on the style and I ended up getting an 8. I do not care what size I am wearing but I would have been disappointed If I had ordered them online, since they were a sale item, and had been stuck with them. I ended up purchasing them in the navy, the length is good, the rise is on the lower side, and I really like the silverescent material. I would have purchased them in black as well but they were none in my size. I wish that Lululemon would allow exchanges on sale items, or being able to receive a Lululemon credit instead of a full refund. It is frustrating when you find something on sale, especially online and ended not buying it in case of the fit, especially since Lulu items range in fit!

sexy yoga pants!
I snagged these pants at my local Lulu store after I'd been eyeing them online for a while. They look so much cuter in person!
1.The fabric is buttery soft
2. the low rise fit makes my bum look awesome
3. the length is just right for 5'8" frame. (i got these in a size four)
4. I didn't notice a muffin top like some of the other reviews said
The only reason why I can't give these pants 5 stars is because the Lulu logo fell off the first time I washed these pants! It's not a huge deal, but it's another sign that Lulu's quality has dramatically decreased.
All in all, I would definitely recommend these pants.
