When I first got them in my hands, I thought the fabric felt different from the marbled mix version. If I remember correctly, the marble mix felt more soft and a bit of a texture to it, sort of spongy? Can anyone verify that for me? The florence version is smooth, no texture at all and reminds me very much of Werkshop leggings but without the compression.
For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in bottoms.
Here I'm wearing my normal size 4. They feel like second skin, very comfortable at the waist. It hits just below my belly button and no muffin top. The waist band is very wide at about 3 inches. As you can see the length is very very long on me.
The lace print is intricate and detailed. Lululemon released a video describing the work that went into this print. All the leaves and honeycomb were hand drawn and then graphically placed so every pair looks exactly the same no matter what size.

There's a large zippered pocket at the back of the waist to store your keys, cards, cash. The one question everyone is wondering, did these pass the bend test? The answer is yes with flying colors. I tried super bright underwear and even used a flash light just to be sure. They are 100% opaque. I wonder if the see-through ones were just a bad batch?
One of my pet peeves are dark crotch seams. I am really not a fan, but I think the dark seam is a better choice than a white seam, if those were the two choices. What do you think of the dark seams?
Scrunched up ankles.
I decided to play around and came up with some outfits if I were to wear these out casually. Here I am wearing my AllSaints moto jacket in oxblood for a little bit of leather and lace.
What do you think? Should I keep them? I can't decide. I'm leaning towards keeping them, but the dark seams, price and the length are keeping me from 100% loving them. On the other hand, the comfort, detail in print and the leg lengthening look makes me want to keep it.
