a sweat-wicking, four-way stretch fabric that's cool to the touch and fits like a second skin - this technical fabric offers support and smooth, low-friction performance
woven for strength and no-bulk performance, this four-way stretch fabric moves with us and stays out of our way
why we made this
We designed these long, loose-fitting shorts to wear running or at the gym. We made them without a liner so we can throw them on over our underwear, compression shorts or run tights (and if we go commando, we stay in the back row during Downward Dog).
fabric + features
woven for strength and no-bulk performance, Swift Ultra fabric is engineered to feel light and keep you covered
soft, comfortable waistband made of Luxtreme™ fabric wicks sweat away from your skin
stash your key in the secure slot hidden in the left pocket
keep your cards secure in the flat rear pocket
flat seams help keep sweaty skin free from chafing
keep your shorts on! a stretch drawcord in the waistband helps with that
good and bad
These shorts are great! They are comfortable, breathable, look cool and are versatile. I live in these things! The problem is that they are terrible for lifting. Olympic lifting has ruined several pairs that I have. The fabric has almost worn through where the knurl of the bar brushes against the thigh when snatching and cleaning. The timeframe of this happening was relatively short as well. This begins to happen to these shorts within a few weeks, so not long at all. It is a bummer because they are not cheap. I would love to see a more heavy duty version of the core short. That would be awesome! Would I recommend them? Yes, but definitely not if you plan to lift in them.

good for a second
I have 2 pairs of these core shorts. They fit great but both of my pairs have strings coming out on the sides and are slowly "falling apart". It's annoying because I follow all of the washing rules and take really good care of them. I have Nike shorts that I could wash on hot and dry a million times and they are perfectly fine.... WHY!!!! Please make your products better, please, please, please!

Best Shorts Ever!
I just got into Yoga, and was looking for some great shorts to wear during my Bikram classes. I decided to splurge a little and get my first pair of Lulu's, and I am so glad I did. These shorts are so comfortable! I ended up buying them in 4 different colors. They fit great, and seem to be holding up really well. I was a little nervous as I started wearing them almost ever day so I wasn't sure how daily washing might begin to break them down but I can say so far they still look like the day I bought them. Normally I wear an XL, but after trying them on I went up to a XXL because the groin area seemed a little tight in my normal size.

Great shorts, wish they were avail with liner!
These shorts are my favorite for lounging, poker, running errands on hot days, etc...I would wear them to the gym every day too if they came with liners!

core short new waste line/pocket for iPhone
luv the short, everything is great, lightweight, very comfy.
downside is they change the waste line which affected the side pocket for your iphone, the new waste line will not fit an iphone 5 with a cord for your head phones without bending the cable. the old waste line has a deep pocket for iphone and it works great, hope they go back to old design for pocket.

Best Shorts I Own Without A Liner
I own a lot of LLL shorts and these are by far the best shorts I own without a liner!!! Why?!?! The waist band is amazing and the length is perfect for me at 6'5".

These are the most comfortable shorts that money can buy! I have purchased a couple of pairs and am patiently waiting for the canali print ambient grey to be restocked. Thank you Lululemon for a great product!!!

I own 3 pairs of these shorts and love them. However, I wanted to let folks know that the cell phone pocket on the "heathered texture printed ambient grey/deep coal" version is different then my other 2 pairs (Soot and lakeside blue)
The pocket is not as deep, but has a larger top flap. I have an iPhone 5s with a case on it and have no trouble fitting the phone in with headphones attached in my other 2 pairs. The grey ones however will not fit my phone with headphones attached without stretching the top flap very tightly. I didn't realize the difference until I had washed them before first wear. Not a huge deal, but I hope my review helps someone else.
