Lab Night Tight
Color fades quickly!!
While in Vancouver for the SeaWheeze Sunset festival, I traveled up to Whistler. I saw these in the Whistler store and absolutely loved them so I picked them up.
The tights are true to size and I love the fit. It feels like a second skin; they're very comfortable!
After 2 washes with other exercise clothes (cold water and hung to dry), the color has already changed! The tights are no longer black, they're brown... I'm really disappointed with the tights as they are not the same as when I purchased them. I own many Lululemon items and this has never happened with my other pieces. Really upset with this especially since I paid full price and I loved the original black color.

At first I was hesitant about purchasing these pants, but I am so glad I did. Not only are they stylish and chic on the go, but during yoga and Pilates the mesh material allows my legs to breathe without feeling too hot. Super flattering with a hint of sexy, I absolutely love these pants.

honestly when i saw these online i thought that the quality would be poor due to the type of fabric used on the back of the legs on these pants?.BUT i was pleasantly surprised that when i tried them on in-store that they are 'surprisingly chic' and the quality appears to be well thought out?.they are the perfect pant for instructing (or attending!) barre & pilates classes!?(possibly not the best 'hanging with the kids at the park' type of pants)... overall really well designed and very 'sexy-cute' on! :)

subtly sexy, great for date night or drinks
I was not crazy about these pants when they came out but I eventually tried them on in store out of curiosity. I was immediately sold. The luon feels softer than what the full on luon roll down WUP are made of even though they are the same fabric. The mesh panels are placed in just the right spot to show a little leg while the full on luon does its job of making your rear look amazing. I couldn't believe how classy it actually looked on since the blog post styled it in back alley ways like hooker wear. I loved them so much I bought them and ordered the all black meesh tee to wear with them and my white energy bra for my upcoming wedding anniversary date. I cant wait for the tee to get here so I can see them together, but I am sure I will LOVE it!

Nice but not for me
I was so excited to try these pants on after I ordered them! I received them and immediately tried them on and wasn't a huge fan. Just not for my style. Where the luon ends and the mesh reaches at the seam it almost seems to dig into your booty. Not a big deal or uncomfortable at all, I just noticed that. The fabric was very nice and soft.

Just about perfect
I have really liked lulu's high-waisted crops lately. As a mum of two, I have a bit of extra tummy skin I like to keep tucked in. I am 5'5" 120lbs, 34 hips 27 waist 32 bust (32C to 34B) and carry weight in my middle. I take wunderunders in 4 for casual wear and 6 for yoga. These were too loose in a 6, a bit loose in the legs in 4 (perfect waist) and a bit tight in the waist at 2 (perfect legs). I would have purchased in a 4 except the whole mesh back of the legs was a bit too edgy for me. The full on luon was soft and completely opaque. The mesh was lovely and cool on my legs, and seemed pretty robust and unlikely to snag, although I do ashtanga and hot yoga so no ropes to rub. LOVED the high soft waist without an inner elastic. The foot openings and ankles were a bit snug, and I have slim ankles, so these might be an issue for some. Overall pretty nice.

Fabulous and edgy
I love these pants! They do fit true to size. I wear a 4 in all lulu bottoms and these are no exception. The back seam places well on the leg and it's a really attractive look (my boyfriend loves these pants on me!) I'm considering buying a second pair! They look smashing with heels or casual shoes.. Definitely a unique look.

Edgier side of lulu
Skeptical at first. But I love it. I agree with the first review, it is super soft non restrictive luon, and the mesh is much smoother and plux than the tech mesh. The fit is very much like the hi-time, yet length more like wunder under classic. And the waist is perfect like high time.
I am in my normal size and because the fabric seems finer, it's a bit more forgiving, and not at all shiny or see through.
The quality of the luon and the mesh is superior to other styles. The seam pulls nicely in place without twisting or moving. I love tgat it's different, but it may not be acceptable to everyone. Comfort and quality wise, it's unparalleled .

cute, but didn't like the baggy fit
these are really cute, i personally like that they look like pantyhose in the back! i ordered my usual size 6 (i'm 5'5, 135). this was my first time trying the high waist style, and for me the waist was a little baggy as well as the area around the crotch (kind of like in the product photos). i personally prefer a little more compression so i went and tried on a size 4 in the store which fit great but oh boy the bend over test exposed EVERYTHING. i guess these just don't work for me. fabric was very comfortable though.

For a special person
Not for everyone for sure. High waist and luon are nice, but mesh at the back doesn't flatter my larger thighs and legs, also leaves a question if the butt needs to be covered....I'd say a bit strange and questionable use. Going back.
