Happy Yin Year Sweatpant II
Fabulous sweats, flattering fit, a must buy!
I was excited to find these sweats at my local Lululemon store today, and to find that they are on sale at the store for $54! Don't know why they aren't on sale on the website! I love everything about these sweatpants - the terry fabrication is incredibly soft and comfortable, the drawstring midrise waist is figure flattering with no muffin top, the sleek fit is slimming and the back slit pockets are a nice practical and stylish detail. I am a size 10 at other stores but wear a size 8 in pants at Lulu and got these sweats in an 8. As I am not a fan of the baggy sweatpant look, I purchased a size 8 for a sleek fit. These sweats would be adorable with black ankle boots! I will live in these fabulous must-have sweats! Ideal for travel too!

Fabric Piles between thighs
In keeping with the Lululemon style, they are amazingly comfortable and sleek looking. I'm wearing a size 4 and unfortunately, after wearing them twice they are piling at the top of the thighs. I'm slim, the pants are fitted, though it's disappointing to show wear this quickly. I've found this a problem on a couple of winter Lululemon pants I've purchased in the past two seasons. Is there a material that can be added to the winter pants that prevents the fabric from piling.
Lululemon could you design the back pockets so they don't sit right on the sit bones. It's uncomfortable to sit on a heavy seam. Placement on the sides or higher up on the back would work.
Overall, love the design. The cuff at the end of the trouser leg keeps out the cold and is great with casual shoes or boots.

I am 5'2"-120lbs and got these in a size 6 on sale, I usually wear a size 4 in all pants. These must have been an online return because these pants were not stocked in the store so I couldn't try on a size 4. Surprisingly the size 6 fits although the waist is a little loose but the drawstring takes care of that and the rise is a little high but rolling the waistband down solves that problem. These sweatpants would be perfect had they reduced the rise by the height of the waistband. Having that extra fabric between the bottom of the waistband and the top of the zippered pockets is just not necessary. I can see the length being a problem for taller women but for me the length is fine which is rare for someone my height!
It's difficult to find sweatpants that are comfortable and look good and these do just that. I would love it if LLL made some sweatshirts in this stretch french terry. I would also buy another pair if they came out with more colours, inkwell would be great.

material around pockets
the 4s looked and felt better but because the back pockets have a seam (a thick seam) the corners of the pockets stuck out, so basically the material of the seam is sturdier than the material of the pants so it poked out... production oversight... not impressed but they're comfy but don't look attractive by any means

The fit is not great
I have to agree that the fit on these is terribly off. The waist is Waayyy too high and the crotch too low. Reminds me of those old men that have their pants pulled up to their chest! That being said, they fabric and coziness is awesome. They are going back as the price is too much for something that doesn't fit properly.

Fraying sweat pants
I recieved these sweat pants in the mail and found them very comfortable and what I expected with the overall fit, however, the stitching in the crotch area is freying. I have only worn these pants two times and the stitching is unraveling. I have not washed the pants and have worn only a short time and taken care of them. I think the pants might just be a bad sewing job but its dissapointing to pay this amount of money for them when the stitching is not secure.

I have had great luck with Lulu Lemon in the past. I love my leggings and running shorts so much so I got the Happy Yin Year Sweatpant II for getting to and from the gym and also lounging around. I love the colour and shape of them as they are more form fitting compared to your normal kind of sweat pant.
However I becoming increasingly concerned with the way these pants are wearing in. The material is pilling around the bum area and I have only worn them a handful of times.
I know this can happen from poor washing but I haven't even washed them yet!
For the price I am upset about what's happening to them and now that I know about it, it's all I can think about!
I would love to recommend these to my friends, however, for the price of them it isn't a quality investment.

cool and cozy
These pants are so cozy! I feel really comfortable all through class! I am a dance teacher, so it is really important for my students to see my legs. I love how the pants are tapered at the ankle so they can see my legs, but yet they are loose enough around the waist to wear a pair of shorts underneath. Excited to wear these pants in the winter with a pair of Uggs! Love having a back pocket with a zipper to secure my things while I'm jumping around. I like wearing the maroon pants with a baby blue shirt, so cute!!

I've been looking for the perfect skinny sweatpant and this is it. I bought my normal 6. They fit tighter in the legs than they do on the model, so if you want a looser fit, size up. I really like the rise. For someone who has a perfectly flat stomach I can see where the rise may be uncomfortable, but as a mom whose problem area is my stomach, these pants suck me in and offer great support. The back pockets are a nice touch for people wanting to work the dress up your sweatpants trend. My only complaint is the inseam is so short. I would love to see these in a longer length for those of us with Skinny Will length legs.
