What makes these better than WUs?
The only seam in these is the inseam. No waistband or outside leg seam.
Only on the US side :(
Thanks, LLA! I've been stocking the website for these!
Are they see through or not? Im reading mixed reviews on lll website.
These are see through! Make sure you do the bend over test.
I LOVE EBB & FLOW CROP! THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP. THE SHOPS DO NOT HAVE THESE IN THE EAST COAST. SO HAPPY
ANON 10:37AM- they are see thru if you buy size smaller like some women do as they like to squeeze in like a sausage. a lot of material that is stretched to a pulp will be see thru. i'm a size 2 and bought a size 2 and they are perfectly fine. i practice yoga in a studio where it gets a lot of sun light and my friend who practices behind me so she can follow my form told me they are not see thru. i wear mine very fitted
Thank you so much for telling me! I have been waiting to get these!
What is the material in these crops? Is it a synthetic? I'm not familiar with them/have never seen them but the seamless design looks promising!
I find that they can be see through if you just put them on and bend over. I put mine on and pull on the sides at my hip and then on the back where the back seam would be and that redistributes the fabric stretchyness to where it doesn't go see through. Also, with the dune/flash wee stripe, im sorry if I've missed it but do they bleed like other flash items?
Thank you...I've been wanting the indigo ones!
I now am paranoid about my bottom showing in these crops...I just spent the past 10 minutes trying them on and bending over in front of a mirror. Never, never want to look like a sausage.
my jaw dropped when i saw them online this morning! i wanted the indigo ones and they have been sold out for a long time. They ARE see through...i had to size up, im normally a 4 in everything lulu but in these im a 6. i didnt find it to be a huge difference between sizes except for the 4's were see through and the 6's were not. other than that they fit the same around the knew and waist. they are my favorite crops BY FAR!!! LOOOOVE them!! =)
Darnit! They're sold out of the black ones in 4 and 6 already! I typically wear a 6 in most lulu crops, although I can wear a 4 in Groove crops. I wonder if the 8s would be too big. Should I give it a try?
OMG thank you for letting us know! I bought a pair on Ebay a while ago and paid WAY too much for them. Oh well, bought the grey online today! Canada had them online last week so I was hoping they would come to US soon!
Are they really see-through??? I have the DCSG and I've never noticed it! LLA, what do you think?And those who find them see through - does this issue pertain to all 3 colors or just 1 or 2? I got my mom a pair in black last time they were out. She hasn't even taken the tags off yet but asked for another pair anyway when I told her they were back online. Just got her the DCSG and myself the Deep Indigo. Not only would I not want MY buns hanging out in class (or anywhere else for that matter), I also wouldn't want my Mom to suffer a similar fate! I have to warn her if the pants I convinced her to buy are see through :) !!
OMG! Asked and answered (or maybe I should say ASSed and answered)!! Anon @ 2:44 PM here. I'm actually visiting my parents at the moment so my mom and I just tried on our ebb & flows and did the bend over test. Let me just say that my mom definitely has not seen that much of my bum since early childhood. We are still laughing hysterically at the sight of ourselves!!
Zoink! Indigo Ebb and Flows are now mine! MUHAHAHAHAAAAAA.... Thanks Luluaddict! I would never have known they were restocked if it weren't for you! :)
OMG! Is it that see through? LOL I just ordered the indigo and black.
I don't find them see through at all. I have them in black.
This is random but I think the see thru issue with the ebb and flows have to do with how tall you are too. I weigh 134 and am 5'9" and bought my normal size 6. They fit perfect but when I do the bend test they are sheer! I think the rise has to stretch to fit our long torsos and becomes sheer. If I scrunch them down a bit they are no longer sheer.
Deducing from all the different answers in regards to the sheer/ see through issue of the E&F, I believe that it depends on all of our different body types (and I mean shape/curve distribution). I have all three colors and none is see through. I am 5'4", 107lbs and measures at 32-24-almost 34. I wear a 2, my usual lulu bottom size. My friend, who is similar in height and weight, but a little wider in the hips (35 ish), needs a 4, as the 2 stretches the fabric a little too thin around the bum, hence see through for her. I don't go commando, but wear thongs, especially nude colored thongs for the lighter colored thights. Hence, no problem with seeing the color or patterns of my undies through my tights. Every individual is unique and beautiful...but when in doubt, do the "bend over" test in front of a mirror to see if any particular tights work for you. All of your answers are very helpful, as a guideline. Just keep in mind that we are all unique! :)
I gotta agree with yogi babe. It must have something to do with everyone's unique shapes :) I'm a size 10 in the grooves and got 2 pairs of these (indigo and grey) when they first came out in size 8 and they are not see through at all on me. I've bent every which way to test them out (my daughter was starting to think I was nuts) and I probably looked like a crazy person staring at my own ass backwards bent over in the mirror but they are NOT see through on me either :) I think everyone will have to test it out themselves to see unfortunately. That being said, I love these crops!! I don't even know how to describe the material but it's magical.
Oh no i missed the boat on the ebb & flow crops in black. I have them in every color, i wear an 8 in all other bottoms but a 6 in the ebb. Love them!!!! I wear them for running, trx, yoga etc and they fit like skin. i agree with not wearing them for spin, more cause im concerned about them rubbing on the seat and gettng worn. Maybe they brought them back cause a new color is coming, we can only hope!
ordered they grey and deep indigo!~ Cant wait to try these! I do not have a pair but I keep hearing such amazing reviews so I am going to give them a try! I am between a 4-6 in lulu so i ordered a 6. I would rather my pants be bigger than smaller as I am fearful of them being see through...i can only imagine what my pilates reformer instructor as seen from her view haha! i never want that person to be me!! hopefully these work and am super excited!
Has anyone had their shipping confirmation yet? I ordered two pairs 24 hours ago and received nothing so far. Getting worried now, since they are sold out in my size on line already!
They seem to feel better when they're on. More comfy and contains your middle better in a snug way. No seams and gives such good silhouette. No muffin tops since it's seamless. It's like the genie bra ( I don't own one) concept. Supportive with no seams. I own every wu that comes out except for black but I like ebb and flows better. IMO.
@ anon 440amI haven't received my shipping conf either. I ordered mine fairly early yesterday too. Lately, lulu has been sending my conf later than what I am accustomed. I used to get the order conf and shipping conf w/in the same day. Nifty, huh? But now I find the ship conf isn't sent til 36-48 hrs after the order has been placed. I am not worried yet! I will worry if I don't receive my conf by the end of day.
@Kristin & anon 4:40amJust received my shipping confirmation for my E&F. Hope you guys will get yours soon too. :)
i ordered mine yesterday at 7AM EST and just received confirmation today at 1223pm. so it looks good :) i hope they fit great on. someone mentioned that they feel a little different from the first batch.
@ yogibabeThx for always being soooo helpful. And I just received my shipment conf. wooohooo! But it won't get here til the 15th! boooo. I guess that is what I get for living in FL
i cant believe they arent sold out yet in the grey and indigo!!!
Whoa...I guess everyone is unique, because they were definitely sheer on me. And no, lil miss Anon @ 11:10 AM, I was not squeezing myself into them like a sausage. I got my usual size and they were kinda loose, I was even worried they were too big. But I did some down dogs in front of my boyfriend who confirmed that they were see-through. I didn't believe him so he took a picture...and yeah, not okay. I could see maybe practicing yoga in a dark studio in them, but I wanted them for turbo kick too, and we do lots of squats. I'm not paying $78 for something that I'll feel self-conscious in.
