Lulu Love: The Groove Pant

see more by

Oh, for the love of Lulu.  I didn’t use to get it.

The first time I went into their Fashion Island store and saw the price tags on this workout apparel I almost fell over. But I sucked it up and bought some running shorts last spring and then I got it.

So when the weather changed, I decided it was time to buy my first pair of Lululemon workout pants.  But still, $98 for a pair of workout pants?! It is sort of hard to get over.  I hope my husband isn’t reading this post.

I ended up with this –> Groove Pant <–because I kept hearing how they are pretty much everyone’s favorite.  I have worn them for just about every workout since.  No joke.   They are that groovy!

And, for as flattering as a workout pant can be for this mom of two, they ARE. When you put them on, you just FEEL better.  I love that the pants have a seam down the back of the bum and leg, really flattering.    And the band at the top makes for a perfect muffin top smoother along the waistline.

I also love the band of color because it matches with a lot of tanks and adds some color.  They are also reversible to a plain black, but I love the color side so I haven’t worn them in the plain yet.

They are very high quality and I believe they really are made better than the lower cost options (as they should be!!) The material is thicker, and after a gazillion washes (in delicate), they still look good.

I wear them both to run and for Pilates.

With the amount that I wear them, it was the best $98 I have spent!  I figure I will take ONE pair of these over 5 pairs of my old cheapo ones anyday!

Anyone else LOVE Lulu?  What’s your favorite??

    I know Lisa – and I am so sorry. But these truly are a MUST HAVE!!!! Once you have a pair, you can’t go back! Don’t tell my husband but I also recently bought a pair of running / pilates crop pants too. They just feel SO good on. You won’t regret it! And I am bummed they don’t carry those shorts anymore. Hoping they bring them back this spring!

    Yes, Jen – you have another convert here…thanks alot!! (did you hear the sarcasm?!) 😉 I knew about lulu but wasn’t about to spend the money. NOW, I am addicted. I saw your post about the running shorts and I had to give them a try. I think that they are different now but the ones I got are the Groovy Run shorts. LOVE them. I also am in love with the Wunder Under pants. I have been taking Pure Barre classes (if you like Pilates, you would LOVE these!) and I prefer the fitted leg for that (versus the typical yoga style pant bottom with the flare.) Anyway, also like the Long and lean tank. I actually want to head back over to the Spectrum soon and get another pair of the Wunder Unders but cropped. I will have to check out the ones that you posted about today. 🙂 Do they creep down? If not, then they ARE a must-have! I cannot stand when I am running (or even walking for that matter) and I have to constantly jack up my pants. ANNOYING!
