New Core Short
After a friend wore these shorts, I went out and got a pair- after which, I went out and bought several more. The length, texture, fabric and length were all perfect for working out and lounging.
Recently I went back to get another pair and was disappointed. The only redesign that was improved was the new elastic band. The pockets aren't as deep, they cut off at least two inches on the length and they are a much slimmer design. Perfect if you're a vegan or an Asian male who typically have narrower bodies, not so much if you eat meat and aren't Asian.
Please revert back to the old design of more length with more room and bigger pockets.

I currently have two pairs of the core shorts. I use them daily for CrossFit and haven't found anything that compares. They are extremely light and very durable which is a must for our workouts. I would recommend these to anyone looking for something that will last through the toughest of workouts.

Why keep changing these? Grrrrrrrrrr
A few years ago, the core shorts were phenomenal. Thick material, reflective Lulu logo, great side pocket, great waistband (luxe inside, short material outside) and the waistband was a narrow-ish string with metal ends and the key pocket had an elastic loop. Then you go and change the material to something much thinner. Then the logo changes and it's not reflective (but you've gone back to the reflective one). Then you change the waistband to a flat, thick material which honestly just gets in the way. Now you shrink the side pocket so an iphone will barely fit and only will fit if shoved in there. Then the key pocket doesn't have the elastic loop anymore. The waistband is luxe - big deal...really don't care.
So the latest (and probably last pair) of core shorts:
cruddy thin material
phone pocket stinks and is almost unusable
key pocket doesn't have elastic loop
ribbon like waistband that just gets in the way
I wear Core shorts every single day, at least once a day and sometimes twice. I will continue to wear my older, better ones but won't plunk out $60 for any new ones as long as this new design stays the way it is. I don't even want the ones I just bought and I can't return them because I didn't figure out all of their flaws until I had them on and was beginning my workout away from home.

Most comfterable shorts
These are hands down, the most amazing pair of shorts that I own. They're styleish, comfy, and can be used for anything! I plan on buying many more of these!

Absolutely love these shorts. I can't imagine ever buying another pair of shorts from another company and I am a huge Oakley and Under Armour fan. These shorts are a step above the rest and I would wear them all the time if I could. I can't ding them about the i-phone pocket thing because it just doesn't matter that much to me.

By FAR the best pair of shorts I have ever worn. I lift and run almost everyday and I just cant get enough of these. They are perfect for the grind

PLEASE lengthen the iPhone pocket!
These shorts WERE amazing until they decided to shorten the iPhone pocket. I have NO IDEA why that was done since that feature made these the PERFECT shorts for running and working out. I literally converted entirely to these shorts based on the simple pocket. Not having a phone fall out or thump against my leg while running was amazing. Now I see on my latest pair that the "designers" have "improved" them by shortening the phone pocket. Was this change not tested by anyone from 2014 that uses a smartphone?? PLEASE revert back to your earlier design.

Change in pocket design
I own at least a half dozen pairs of the core shorts. I love them for running and lifting at the gym. However, lululemon has shortened the pocket so that my I-phone will not fit and sticks out half way. Thank goodness for the otter cover on my phone because it hit the deck while running on the tread mill recently.
Please change back to the original design if you want your loyal customers to continue buying these shorts.

I own 3 pairs of core shorts from the last 3 years that have gone through several different iterations. They've been great, but like several others have mentioned, the side pocket no longer fits my iPhone which is a massive design flaw...I have no idea what you all were thinking with that one.
The second issue I have is that they're a bit long for me. A personal preference, but these are the only lulu shorts that fit my iPhone during gym time so I have to buy these over the more attractive shorter shorts you sell.
If you were to release a 7"-9" version of the core short, with the same pockets and everything but expand its side pocket out again, that would be, for me, the perfect gym short.
Also, no stupid liners. My underwear works just fine.

best shorts ever
perfect length, great material, love the fact that they are unlined. Wish they were available as long pants.
My only complaint is that the best color the heather grey (HTPA) seems to have been discontinued.
If there is any way to get 5 pairs in XL please let me know
