Looks like I "peed" my pants!
I bought these in a heather purple color. At first, I wasn't a fan of the ruching but once I tried them on, I thought the ruching was actually very flattering and held everything in place. I decided to buy these because the fabric felt soft and pants felt comfortable yet snug in the dressing room. I wore these to a regular yoga class and once I began to sweat, it showed- looked as if I peed my pants, so embarrassing. Additionally, I felt the fabric to be warm and heavy through my workout. Definitely will NOT be wearing these to hot yoga. Not sure about the other colors, but I definitely do not recommend wearing these if you plan on sweating. For the price, I have yoga pants that I can't work out in, boo.
For reference, I'm 5'1'', 34-24-33 bought in size 4, crop pant hits a few inches below my knee.

New Favorite Crops
I saw these crops for the first time about 2 weeks ago and bought them in a dark purple. I went to go back and get a second pair in black and no one has them anymore.
These are my new favorite crops. I love the ruching in the waistband and on the bottom of the crops. I also like that they are low rise in the front but high in the back. Please bring these back so I can buy more colors!

LOVE! Please bring back with more colors!
I got these in the cadet and they are extremely flattering and comfortable. I have so many bottoms and these are one of my favorite! Please bring these back in more colors (neutral colors please) and black!

Wanted to love these...
I was so excited to have these as an alternative to my WU crops, and I love the heathered cadet blue color. Unfortunately, they fell short in a couple of ways.
I am usually an 8 in LL bottoms. The 8 in these fit me pretty snug, although I don't think there was a sheerness issue. The waistband is fantastic and hides any muffin top, which I appreciated. The "Luon" on these crops is thin and feels sort of cheap, though, not thick and concealing like some of my previous WU's.
The most disappointing part was the egregious CT these crops gave me. I ordered a 10, thinking maybe the CT would go away in the larger size. The 10 fit me well, but the CT was still there. Ick! I had the same CT issue with a pair of WU's I bought (and returned) last winter. Until LL changes the gusset design, I guess I'll have to keep shopping for vintage bottoms that actually fit me properly.
The worst part is how frustrating LL's return policy is. I refuse to pay for return shipping, and getting to a store is not convenient for me, particularly with such a short return window. I hate to give up on LL, but I'm striking out more than succeeding with online orders lately and it's just not worth my time to make special trips to a store for returns.

LOVE these crops!
I just purchased these at a local store after falling in love with them in the fitting room. They are incredibly flattering and so comfortable that I didn't want to take them off. I checked these out thoroughly in the mirror when trying them on and stretched them afterward with my hands as far as I could. I still was not able to see through them at all, so I don't think sheerness is going to be a problem. Lulu, please make these in more colors!

My favorite crops right now
I LOVE LOVE these crops. I have had many lulu crops and these are taking the cake for me these days! I feel like I'm being held in like no other and they really allow me to feel confident I'm looking my best throughout the day while doing multiple activities.

Comfy, with clean lines
I scored these on sale and have zero regrets. Of all my Lulu's, these are incredibly comfortable and don't feel incredibly tight. They still have the great butt-lifting capabilities, but aren't compression-esque. I have some Lulu's that are great for exercise, but borderline tight for lounging. Not so with these. I also like the detailing on the legs, as they can be scrunched up or lengthened, and the same goes for the waist.
34C-28-39 and the 6's worked. I won't worry about sticking them in the dryer either.

cute and flattering crops
i was lucky enough to snag this on sale at a lulu store. super flattering, and a very unique design for yoga crops. i will have to admit that i haven't worn these for any workouts yet (i prefer shorts), but these are my go-to crops for errands, working around the house and for hanging out around town. i love the power luxtreme material in the inner calf, and the wide waistband - they both feel great, and add to the flattering aspect.

Well, that's embarrassing!
Although my lulu's have never tangled in a yoga class- they have ran a soccer pitch, punched the boxing ring, hit the sidewalk, and meddled with ticks on a hike! It wasn't until I read previous reviews that I realized these pants are, in fact, visibly transparent in the bum! I have done all my DAILY (co-ed) sports without knowing this. How embarrassing, Lululemon! This is not the expected high quality of Lululemon (especially considering the price). If I wanted see-through pants, I'd go to Walmart!

a chic crop that goes from studio to work
the fit on these crops is great. theyre not too snug, theyre flattering, and best of all theyre not so basic and boring. now we all love our basics but how many clean classic black leggings can we own now (24?)
i pair them with a fab jeweled flat for work sometimes, and then i put on my kicks and hit the studio later (only really needing to put on the sports bra and top)
now thats versatility!
