In The Flow Short
not the quality hot yoga short i'm used to.
i went into the store to pick up another pair of short specifically for bikram yoga. i currently own the Flip Your Down Dog shorts and they are amazing. when i asked the sales associate for hot yoga shorts, she immediately brought me these and i tried them on. these are no where near the quality of the FYDD shorts. the FYDD shorts have gripped lining on the waist and legs that keep them firmly in place, super breathable while still feeling sturdy and secure. these feel flimsy, the material feels thicker, and there's no way they'd stay in place when you start getting sweaty. they started riding up in the dressing room, and i tried on sizes one up and one down from my usual size. guess i'll just stick to one pair of hot yoga shorts. bring back the FYDD!

I was looking for non camel toe shorts which these are , and they are breathable, but overall like a lot of newer lululemon products. The quality is just not there anymore.
They ride and roll and bunch like woah. the waitband rolls down, the legs roll up, and they have this werid smell that I thought would go away. It smells like chemicals or plastic, and I wash my clothes only in fragrance free detergent.
They do make my butt look adorable, but again how cute can you look pulling and proding at your shorts?

Comfortable but constantly rolls up
I purchased these shorts online hoping I would have a really good experience like some of the other reviewers. Unfortunately, they did not work out for me. I found them to be very comfortable and a nice fabric with a very good fit around my waist, but they kept rolling up on my thighs when I tried stretching or walking around. My legs are on the leaner/muscly side, so maybe I needed a different size? Either way, pretty sure they should not be doing that, so I am a little disappointed. Like some other reviewers mentioned, perhaps they just need a grip on the thighs?
I will be returning them and give the boogie shorts and any other fitted shorts a try. Measurement Reference: I'm 5'6" 124 lbs and wear a size 6 in lulu (gosh, I wish they didn't roll up! They were really nice). Maybe the sales associates will be able to assist this time around, my last visit was brief since there were very few shorts options for my size. I'll have to catch em on a day where they get shipments!
Overall, I say it's worth trying them out since they are comfortable. Either try them on at the store or don't remove the tags to make sure the fit works for you. Good luck friends!

Needs Constant Re-adjusting
I bought these shorts wanting a short-short, not a high waisted pair of underwear! And I didn't want to be constantly fixing them. Unfortunately I am very disappointed with my very first pair of Lulu's. These shorts look great, until you take one step in them and they roll up your legs making a granny panty look. Def don't try to run in these!!! I was so excited to get these I immediately ripped the tags off and threw them in the wash before discovering that these just won't work for me. I took the advice of others and bought a size up... wish I didn't buy at all :(

These shorts are great for bikram, I practice often and these are my favorite. I originally purchased these in inkwell and then got black also because they're the best! They are short, but I would say that's clear based on the pictures :) Love for bikram, maybe the beach too!

I followed the reviews and sized up from 2-4, and these shorts were AMAZING! Perfect length, I didn't find them too short, I didn't have any problems like my cheeks hanging out. There was SO MUCH support, it held my stomach in shape and made me look slimmer. They are extremely comfortable and fit beautifully, and make my butt look so nice! They were incredibly comfy when I wore them to yoga too. Definitely recommend trying in store before purchasing in case the length is too short for your liking.

This is a GREAT product. I wear these shorts for daily Bikram practice. I am thrilled with how well they function. The material is so supportive, breathable, and comfortable that I hardly think about them during practice. After a cold wash they dry out quickly. The inseam is a bit short, but all in all they stay in place. More colors please?

These are way too short. They are basically underwear! I am 5'1 and very petite (I wear size 2 in everything at Lulu). I decided to size up and get a 4 after reading the reviews... I was so excited to get these shorts. I tried them on and they were so tiny! I even went to the store and tried on the 6. They were just as short, but incredibly loose. I just couldn't win with these shorts. Very disappointing because I loved the material. Better luck next time.

Cute shorts, a little sheer, need grips on the leg
I really like these shorts. They are cute and fun. I wear them to my hot yoga class. Yes, they are short. But I don't understand women who buy these and them complain that they are too short. I mean, did they not look at any of the pictures? They are very short on the model! The only reason they may fit any different that what's depicted is if you have a nice sized or very round rear end. Then you may have some cheek hanging out.
What I don't like is that they do roll up. I wish that LLL had put a grip on the inside of the leg opening like on the run skirts.
Also, they are a tad bit sheer but that doesn't really bother me all that much. I think you'd have to be face to face with my butt to see anything good. :-)

does not stay in place
I bought these shorts for Hot Yoga and Pole Fitness and I am dissapointed. The waist band rolls down and the legs roll up and shows by bum cheeks. Not at all what I wanted! I am always fidgeting in these shorts.
