Core Short

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).

Core Short 4.1 5 142 143
Good pair of shorts, but needs an update. I'm known amongst my friends to have an addiction to lululemon. I own two pairs of these shorts and I even though the shorts are great for running, I think the phone pocket needs an update. It's way too small to fit the iPhone 6. The drawstrings could be better as well. I know I'm being critical, but for the cost and lulu name it's only fair to expect a great product. It's great for running, and the shorts don't get bunched up in the behind while running. March 29, 2015
Great shorts..need brighter color choices Love the shorts. Very comfortable. However, I would love to see brighter color choices such as red, sky blue, and orange. Some high visibility colors would also be great for early morning runs. March 22, 2015
slot left pocket is way too small... I have a few pairs of the core short from a couple of years ago and I recently purchased a new pair. The slot pocket in the left pocket is now half the size of my older pairs and my iphone can't fit in it anymore. I will be returning them. March 19, 2015
Great shorts Ive tried a million different style of shorts and I have yet to find anything that is as good as these core shorts. I use them to do a lot of running and circuit/cross training and they are great. March 13, 2015
Great for CrossFit These shorts have become my new go to shorts. They are loose and breathable. Comfortable in the waist. I'd like to see a pair come out in navy. February 22, 2015
What Happened? Own double digit pairs of the old CORE, away on a trip I picked up the new model, reluctantly because the new waist band looks odd. Sadly everything has changed, waist band is bad and rides up and is not pleasing to the eye and the pockets are almost gone. Seriously, why even have them they are short and have zero room for anything. I run with my phone in the side and now it doesn't even fit. Please, please amend these awful design changes to a once great product. February 19, 2015
Bring back the media pocket Your old shorts had the correct size media pocket to fit the Iphone 6 Plus. My shorts are now 2-4 years old and I cannot buy new shorts until you correct this mistake. These are the greatest shorts in the world, but if I can't put my phone in the pocket to listen to my wireless headphones then they are not able to be used to my advantage. Please, please, please, correct these and bring back the old pocket style. February 18, 2015
LOVE em. I wear them during Crossfit sessions. I barely know that I am wearing anything at all (lightweight and stretchy). No crotch pinch or inner thigh chaffing issues. Handwash and hang dry (my preference)...what could be easier? Good price, too. I LOVE em. February 13, 2015
Loved old Core shorts with deep pockets. I was going to buy a silver pair of the new core shorts. I tried them on and the pockets were cut in half and the phone pocket was too small too. Please bring back the old core shorts or make the the pockets the same as before. Guys love their deep pockets. I could put my wallet in the rear or side pocket, keys in left pocket, and phone in right pocket when traveling or going to gym. Now nothing in the new pockets. January 31, 2015
Perfect Great fit, great stretch and wicking action, use for mat, cardio. January 25, 2015
