About lululemon

lululemon is a popular men and women’s activewear brand that was created in 1998 by Chip Wilson. For over two decades, lululemon has been outfitting people in attractive, comfortable and high-performance activewear.

The company is based out of Vancouver, Canada and currently has a worldwide presence with over 400 stores.

lululemon has become a household name and has somewhat developed their own cult following. The brand has been associated with expensive pants, technical fabrics and leading in activewear trends.

This post will explore one of their popular leggings, the In Movement Tights. Let’s see if it’s worth the $98 price tag!

lululemon Review: In Movement Tights Everlux

I received a gift card from lululemon and purchased the In Movement Tights in Formation Camo Deep Coal Multi. I also bought the Another Mile Jacket which I am OBSESSED with.

#1 Size: Sizing runs odd in In Movement tights.

I had to size up in solid colors and size down in the Formation Camo print. In general, I recommend sizing up in In Movement tights.

The fit was great and the double layered and top seamed waistband made the pants fit perfectly. Many reviews will say to size up or go with your true size in bottoms made with Everlux fabric.

Personally, I love being comfortable in my leggings while practicing yoga and lifting weights. The size 8 is my preferred size in the In Movement style. I wear size 6 in all other lululemon pant styles.

#2 Style:  The In Movement Tights are made for high-impact sports as the fit is VERY compressive.

The In Movement tights currently come in different inseams:

  • 2.5″ shorts
  • 19″ and 23″ crops
  • 25″ and 28″ tights

#3 Inseam:  I opted for the 25″ inseam because I like to give my ankles some breathing room. The hem of the leggings are closed. I am 5’5″ for length reference.

#4 Rise: The In Movement tights come with a high rise fit. The waistband sits 1″ above my navel.

#5 Waistband: The waistband is wide and measures 4.” The waistband is lined with multiple pockets so that you can store your belongings. The pockets are on the outside of the waistband.

#6 Fabric

  • Fabric Content: Lululemon‘s proprietary Everlux™ fabric. Everlux™ is designed to dry fast by drawing sweat to the fabric surface to dry quickly.
  • Fabric Feel: Everlux™ feels VERY compressive and durable. I would compare the fabric feel to a tightly knit neoprene. It is also thicker than Luxtreme and Nulux, which adds to the more compressive fit.
  • Fabric Performance:
    • Quick Drying – The double layered knit fabric draws sweat from the surface of your skin to the top of the fabric where it dries quickly.
    • Dry Wicking
    • 4-Way Stretch
    • Compressive
    • Very durable and will not pill.
  • Opacity: The leggings are 100% opaque. The fabric is very thick and provides a lot of coverage. Feel free to go commando in these babies!
  • Additional Pant Features:
    • Reflective logo on the back of the waistband.
    • Waistband pocket, no side pockets.
    • The leg opening has a finished hem.
    • Subtle camo print that resembles a leopard print.
    • Outer seams that curve and cross the sides of the legs and hips.

#7 When to Wear: The In Movement tights are designed for running and high-impact activities. It could also be worn casually and during any level of workout. I love that there are no zippers, so this makes them great for yoga and casual wear.

#8 Cost: The In Movement tights cost $98. The price is on par with their other popular leggings like the Align or Wunder Under Pants.

#9 Gusset: The In Movement tights come with a triangle-shaped, double layer gusset.

#10 Stitch Seam: Flat fell seams are used throughout the pant for a flattering, chafe-free fit.

#11 UPF Protection: Not disclosed but I am pretty sure there is some UPF protection.

#12 Made in Vietnam. Designed in Vancouver.

#13 Care Instructions: I recommend machine washing with cold water on gentle and then hanging to dry on a foldable drying rack, such as this one.

Some brands may offer additional care instructions to keep your clothing long-lasting and vibrant.

Should I Buy In Movement Tights?

I highly recommend the In Movement tights. The Everlux fabric is very durable and the camo print is flattering without being too flashy or too boring.

Sizing does run a little odd so we recommend buying multiple sizes and seeing which size fits best.

My only gripe about the pants is the lack of pockets. Side pockets would make these leggings the perfect companion for working out and lounging in.
