Fit Review: Dance To Yoga Pant, Gather And Sprint Crops

Dance To Yoga Pant
Just no. This is horrible. Maybe if you have narrow hips and straight legs these will lay a certain way on you and look perfectly chic, but on curves they are all wrong.  That front pouch billows out big time. These are such a horrible tight fit (way snugger than Street To Studios or In Flux Crops and Om Pants) in my tts 10. Because of the snugness, all that excess material in the one leg pouches out a lot. It's sad though really because the material is really nice and light and very pretty in this print. If they had made these the cut of the In Flux Crops I would have been all over them. I didn't even mind the white cuffs.

You can really see how much pulling there is at the hips and how much pouching out you get with that asymetrical leg thing.

Here they are in black, equally atrocious. Even the black doesn't minimize the pouch.

These where actually really nice. I liked them a lot and am considering getting them. I'm joining Lulu Addict and her sister and nieces for Seawheeze and I'm told I have to wear the team outfit and these may coordinate since the neutral print is right. There aren't tons of pockets on this crop which is annoying at $98 price tag but I like the mesh down the side and I love the high rise on them. I didn't buy them today but depending on what returns I do over the next few days I may pick them up.

I like the ruching at the lower leg too and that the stripes are angled vs. being straight across.

  1. There was another pair of crops recently that looked identical to the Dance To Yoga Pant but they had a small strip of mesh going down the legs. They had the same off-center crotch thing going on. I was horrified by how they looked on me and I'm a size 4. I don't think this cut looks good on anyone!

    Why, oh why do they not make more In Flux crops?? They sold like hot cakes and my store never did get them so I think they were online only. I agree, if these were In Flux in that print, I'd be all over them. :)

  2. Yeah that Dance to Yoga pant is something else. I feel like the only hope might be sizing up to go for a more oversized fit to help the draping, but I agree with you I think you just have to be slim-hipped to *possibly* make these work. Curves/thighs are nice things...they just don't agree with these pants!

    I do however love the fit of those Gather & Sprint crops on you! Too bad about the lack of pockets, but I think I really like that mesh. A nice flattering fit!

  3. I'd really like to try the dance to yoga pants... Does anyone know how I could get my hands on a pair, since we did not see these in the U.S. ??? I'm willing to pay for extra shipping costs, etc.

  4. I like Gather and Sprint crop on you. The first ones look too busy IMO. I would get tired of them quickly.

    OT: I just opened my order from last week with Picnic Play dress. I was on vacation that's why it took so long for me to finally see my dresses. I ordered 2 dresses, in black & gingham in my TTS 4. I figured the easiest way to put the dress on if you step in it and pull up. No struggle what so ever . Anyways, I'm so bummed, the gingham one has about 2 inches of contrast stitching coming undone on the side! :(( it's very visible. I already called my store to see if any other store still has these dresses, but the told me Ginghsm was online only. I have a friends wedding coming up that I was going to wear this dress to. Has anybody seen these dresses at their store by any chance??

    1. Lululover, are you in Canada? I saw the gingham dress at the Kits Vancouver store. They had both the black and the gingham in various sizes as when I was there yesterday.

    2. No I'm in U.S but thank you anyways! I , took it to the store today hopefully they'll fix it. Not liking the fact that I paid $98 for a defective item, but it looks adorable on

  5. ANON 7:34: I bought those other crops "Yogi Retreat", in all 3 color on markdown and like you, am a size 4 and not curvy at all really. Still, I could not take the tags off. I couldn't bring myself to like the mesh or the drop at the waist and finally after about 4 months of them sitting in my closet, I took them into my store and they had no problem giving me a merchandise credit. Yeah for the educators in London On.! I didn't even have the receipt and really wasn't expecting them to offer this. So, I won't be buying these new ones at all!

  8. Thanks for the fit review LLM,

    I tried the Dance to Yoga pant on and actually like them. I am short and curvy only 5 foot zip and 135 lbs. I wear size 8 and 10 in lulu pants. The 10 fit me and the flap part laid flat on me. The 8 was too small. I will wear them for dance classes. The only thing I wish is that they had pockets.

    I know this will be a style that won't appeal to the masses but I did like them and I like the swift fabric. I also like the yogini crops too so what do I know lol.

  9. I don't understand some of the style choices lulu keeps making lately... I really like the Gather and Sprint crops on you. Now if I see someone decked out in those and a clear "team uniform" I'll give a "LuluMum!" holler at SeaWheeze!

  11. I'm suprised that in your comment for the Gather And Sprint Crops, you mention the rise as high, because they mention it as low at the site's description.Do you find to have the same rise with the WU crops ?

  12. Someone gave me the dance to yoga pant and I love how they feel I just hate the excess fabric. Does anyone know or have tried out if it's possible to have them altered so they look more flattering?
