I just want to take a moment to talk about a new favorite of mine. I am really really digging the Real Quick Crops right now! So, first off, I will say that the Luxtreme is, on average not as compressive as we’re used to, but I still feel somewhat held in. Although, officially, these are meant to make you feel “hugged.”
Here are the official specs, for the interestested:
fabric + features
- Luxtreme® fabric with added Lycra® fibre is cool to the touch and fits like a second skin
- Mesh fabric panelling for added ventilation
- chafe-resistant flat seams mean more dash and less rash
- flip up the cuff to expose reflective details
- signature three-pocket waistband to stash all your essentials
- Hugged Sensation
fit + function
- designed for: run
- fabric(s): Luxtreme, Mesh
- fit: tight
- rise: high
- inseam: 17”
- leg opening: 11”
So, first off, I do want to address something that’s been mentioned a lot in the reviews online, which is that these crops bunch at the knee. While I, personally, have not experienced this, I can see how it might happen. So, if this is something that would really bother you, or make these unwearable, I will urge you to try these on in-store first, or (if you’re not near a store and have to order online) at least run around in them for a few minutes before tearing off those tags!
Here are some pretty pictures:
Here they are top to bottom, left to right: Deep Zinfandel, Posey Black/White, Samba Snake Battleship Black, Deep Green, Heathered Black/ Boom Juice.
I really want the Heathered Black/ Boom Juice ones, but alas, I only saw them available online overseas. Maybe they’ll make it here!
I really like these crops, honestly, because they fit great and look good. I’m a curvy girl, so, it’s nice to find crops that flatter me. If you have big hips and thighs, you’ll probably appreciate these. I think I even like them better than my Inspires, but we’ll see which ones get more wear this summer. Also: If you like the Run For Your Life crops, these remind me of them because of the mesh placement.
Thanks for reading!
