Studio Crops Being Discontinued

Rumor has it that the Studio Crops that showed up in We Made Too Much tonight are being discontinued. The more popular Street to Studio Pant is taking their place. I decided to get a pair of the Cadet ones. It's also rumored the No Limit Tank is on its way out, too.

I noticed that when I was at my usual store! Already had the black and cadet but decided I might as well get the soot ones as well! It's a shame...those are great crops!

I know. I don't care for the rear in the Street to Studio pants.

WHAT? The NoLimitTank is being discontinued, too?!! It's such a staple in their line-up, though, and one of my favorite tops!! =(

Thanks for the heads up! My calves are chunky and the bottoms of the narrow cut crops get stuck on my calves so the studio crops are about the only option for me. I hope they continue with them and not assume that all their customers are built the same.

i think they are on sale b/c of the waistband rolling issue - it rolls after being washed.... this is a known issue at lll

Maybe they are taking them away for awhile to try to fix the rolling waist band issue?

Noooooo, I love the No Limits tanks! I must have close to 20 of them!

They are being discontinued because of the waist band issue. I have a pair. Little sharp plastic barbs stick out and scratch at the waist line. I've pulled about 20 out. They look like and feel like fish bones.

Thanks for the heads up LLA. I love these crops. I just bought the soot and white to add to the 3 pairs I already have. These are great crops for summer to run errands and take my cone to the park.

Boo, I like these pants, I have two pair.

I prefer the studio crops to the street to studio pant. The pant is funky in the rear giving you a muffin top also. Crops are shorter better for summer pant is better for spring. As Lulu discontinues my favorite items the less I buy. Since they discontinued the Define jacket I have never purchased its "replacement" the Forme jacket.

I figured the same thing when I saw all the studio crops in WMTM. I think all the negative reviews related to the waistband rolling issue put a big dent in sales. I've never experienced that problem and ordered a pair in Dune. The Street to Studio crops don't do anything for me either.

I'm 5'2 and wear a 4 in speed shorts. Should I size down or are these TTS? Also, think I might be too short for them? I don't want them to look weird length wise on me.

I really don't care for the street to studio. The calf is too tight and it is impossible to put on after a work out without removing my shoes Thanks for the heads up! I stocked up.

Well crap, I ordered 2 more pairs. Thanks for heads up.

I tried on the Street to Studios the other day and they just don't look right on me, they're not something I would ever buy. I don't really wear crops anyway, but even I have a pair of Studio Crops.

Totally agree LLA, the street to studio pants don't fit right for me and they also seem to give you a diaper-bum look, I'm not a fan :(

Have you heard anything about whether or not we will see clam diggers this summer? I'd love another pair, especially with the studio crops being discontinued.

Once they came out with the Street to Studio I never looked back! I love the StS and stopped buying the regular studio crops. Some ppl may still like them though so I always feel bad when they discontinue something completely.

I hope the no limit top goes out. I much prefer the open bottom on the tuck me in tank which has the same silhouette on the top.

Street to Studio are not flattering for my body type. God forbid if you have athletic calves...

LuluAddict said...

Totally agree on the Street to Studio diaper butt and tight calves comments. I am not a Street to Studio fan.

Maybe it is the rolling waistband/elastic mesh poking through BUT way-back-when lululemon didn't used to have a problem with rolling waistbands and poking mesh so all they have to do is go back to the materials they used to make the pants/crops before.

I hope this is a temporary retirement and they find another solution for the waistband problems. I like the silhouette of the DSCs much better than the Street to Studios and I think it's a much more flattering fit from the back view than that STSs.

If you have had rolling waistband/mesh poking problems and don't want to give up your pants, I've read of people taking their pants to a seamstress to have the inner elastic mesh removed - that is the trouble making item - the ribbed material still has elastic in it and you can use the tie string. Just something to keep in mind. I haven't tried this myself. I am just living with the rolling waistband in my pants right now.

@ anon 9:17 am - I wish they'd come out with some Clam Diggers again. They are a favorite summer bottom for me.

Just be aware the street to studio crops also have rolling waistbands. My dune pair never did and are wonderful, but my inkwell ones did and my friend's black ones did too. I keep having to flat iron them which is soooo annoying! Come on Lulu! Fix this already!

amazr said...

Oh and another thing, bring back the Yoga Camp crops! They were way more flattering and functional than the studio crops AND street to studio!

Nicole Norden said...

I get the waist band issue - but how is it any different then in the regular DSPs then? I have MANY pairs of the dsp's and dsc's and haven't experienced any of the waist band issues - I love them!! I'm also not a fan of the StoS pants for the same reasons mentioned - I'm a swimmer, and have swimmer's calves and thighs! I'll be super disappointed if they do get rid of the dsc's :(

Oh no! I love the studio crops. I had a sneaking suspicion something was up when i saw them all on wmtm last night. I just went back and ordered 3 more pairs even though I already have those colors. The street to studios just don't look good on me. Poochy in butt and belly as I have hips and they make me look dumpy when I'm not!! The dance studios are great though. I really hope it's just temporary til the waist band issue is fixed, although I've never had any problems with mine. I even prefer the crops over the pants as the legs are just too long and wide on my 28" inseam legs.
And to anonymous 8:15, I too, wear a 4 in speed shorts but I size up to a 6 in studios as I have hips and like them just a little looser. I find the 4 just a bit snug in the butt for my liking. If you are slim hipped you can probably go with the 4. I am 5'3" and don't find them too long but they are cinchable at the bottom so you can adjust the length a bit that way.

I've had the same elastic poking through the waistband issue in my pair of Tracker II 4-way stretch shorts in the clear mint/bali breeze stripe. The very first time I wore them on a 3 mile run I couldn't figure out what was irritating something on my hip. It was so bad that I was bleeding due to the abrasion. I initially thought that there was a remnant of the plastic hang tag on the inside of the waistband. Finally in just the right light I could see what looked like pieces of very fine fishing line sticking out of the waistband. I've cut the ones I could see of but more keep popping up. To run in them the next time, I actually just put a band-aid over that spot and it worked okay but sort of annoying that I would have to do that.

Yes to the Yoga Camp crops! Love it and have the pants too. I bought two more of the Studio crop to add to my stash (dune and bleached coral). But I also love the street to studio pants. To me, it has a sleek and cleaner silhouette, but I am in the minority, it seems. However, I do love all three crops! :)

How do you guys secure the string at the bottom after you cinch the legs in? After you pull the string, do you guys make a knot? Thanks for the tips!

This sucks! I did buy 2 more pairs on sale, but the street to studios look awful on me. I really wish they wouldn't touch something when they have a good thing- I love my studio crops....

Does everyone like the flatlock rise seam in the crotch? It's like a bulls eye screaming "look at me". A more subtle serge seam looks much better (kind of invisible). I wear them all the time and there is no "chafe" which is the supposed reason for flatlock besides being a strong seam. The strength isn't a problem if you use proper stretch thread of sufficient weight.

Peggy said...

Any news if they'll get the dance studio crops back? I have at least six pairs and have never had an issue with the waist band. I got compliments all the time on them. I could also wear them dressed up or casual.

They just released the new studio crop ii. Not excited about the changes they've made. They look like a cross between the street to studio pant and the in flux crop. They've made the leg narrower and shorter and have added an elasticized hem in the bottom of the leg. As well the defining pocket details that are a trademark of the studio pant appear to be missing. Super disappointed to see this hackjob on a great style. Oh...and they are being released at $98 CAD. Yikes
