A win for Lululemon this week, guys! I’m loving these Final Lap Crops. It’s a little bit strange the Final Lap Crops are called crops when they are really more like 7/8 length, but on some of you tall folks out there these may actually be long crops on you that hit mid calf. These are really similar to the Fast & Free Tights 7/8 tights but these are two inches shorter, and the hems are finished off which I love. I really like my Fast & Free Tights and crops but I do prefer a hemmed ankle and I don’t find the raw edge ads anything visually, and any streamlined effect is so negligible that it’s not worth calling it a ‘feature’. These have side holster pockets as well as a back zip pocket – they are truly a run crop.
The nitty gritty about these is that this Dark Forest color is actually pretty light, so if you experience a little bit of cellulite show through on certain light colors, you may get that here. It’s not extreme though and I think it’s less than I see show through with light color align pants. I’m comfortable with a bit of cellulite showing through because all my coolest crossfit friends have cellulite. I do hate when it’s a lot of it showing through though and I know that is a consideration for most of you with light colors like this. I find these an 8/10 as far as opacity, but I have to double check that in different harsher lighting. The color is divine! It’s a really pretty natural green without the brown tones of kaki, really more of a sage green. Of all the pieces that have come out in this color, I think it looks the prettiest in this nulux lycra material. The seam details are very slimming and flattering. If you are torn between Align Pants in this color and these pants I would definitely choose these as they are just as lightweight and soft (although not flannely feeling), more durable and better for multi purpose use.
Since I have you here, the Toothpaste Energy Bra has been added to the website. Toothpaste looks amazing with Dark Forest!
I’ll have my next Athleta review up for you later tonight or tomorrow morning. Stay tuned for that!
