Fun and Unique patterns
LuLaRoe leggings come in a variety of fabrics (manufactured abroad). Rarer patterns are dubbed “unicorns.” Consultants may not have more than one of a given pattern.
They are often described as comfortable, modest, and of good quality with a great fit.
The leggings are often described has having a buttery texture that is super soft.
No returns and difficult exchanges
Most consultants appear to offer exchanges with the merchandise they have in stock, but they don’t allow returns.
Inconsistent quality and fit
Products are made of different fabrics, in different countries, and are of varying quality. Some of this appears to be part of the interest in LuLaRoe sales model (scarcity of certain types of fabric shiny vs tshirt etc), but it also manifests in many customers being unhappy with quality and hit or miss on particular fit.
Different leggings and different consultants will sell at different prices. Also, prices may be different in different social networks — if a lot of people are selling then prices will go down. Check out ebay for lower prices (here’s pricing for sold leggings on ebay to give you an idea).
