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 5 156 157
Amazing These have been fantastic. I LOVE them. I'm relatively new to Lulu and I'm wondering why I didn't buy them sooner. The Core Short has been an amazing purchase...especially since I can get them hemmed to my desired length. A definite buy. May 28, 2015
Best shorts These are by far the best shorts I've ever had. They are breathable, comfortable, and just all around awesome for whatever you are doing in them. I'd recommend them to just about anyone. May 25, 2015
Were the best shorts ever I have 5 pair of the old Core short and love everything about them. The material is great, the pockets are deep and they have a pocket on the side that holds my phone when I exercise. I bought a new pair and they have no pocket for my phone and the front pockets are not very deep. Not sure why someone would mess with the perfect product. I am really bummed and won't be buying more until the old style returns. May 19, 2015
Go back to the old design The Core shorts used to be great, 5 stars. My favorite part was the side pocket that used to fit all iPhone sizes. Over the past year Lululemon changed the style (slightly baggier at leg opening, new waistband, smaller side pocket). I would continue buying these shorts if the side pocket still fit an iPhone, problem is that it barely fits keys now. The current pictures on this site showing an iPhone fitting into the side pocket are COMPLETELY misrepresented, the phone only goes in about half way. I ordered a pair based on this pic last week (thinking that they went back to the old size) and found this out the hard way. Lululemon- please go back to the old fit with the deeper side pocket, I will buy a pair every color! Otherwise, please remove pictures of an iPhone fitting in this pocket, it is deceptive advertising. May 12, 2015
Awesome pair of shorts ! Great pair of shorts for a hot day out. Very comfortable not tight and very loose, breathable. I like the thickness of the drawstring. I got the blue colour which is a very awesome colour. The price was a plus, cheaper then most pair of the shorts at Lulu. I however did like the waistband (lux band), which is made out a very nice material. May 10, 2015
Great Shorts Great shorts so far, light weight, breathable and super comfy. I love the wide waist band and versatility of the CORE short as well as the price. Surprisingly one of the cheapest shorts made my Lulumon is also one of my favorite. I'm a clothing junky and like trying out different brands all of the time - though I must say after wearing these it is harder to want to wear anything else. My only negative with the shorts is the color choices that are available. More solid/subtle colors would be great. I opted for the gray ones as I have multiple black shorts however a solid red or solid blue, or more subtle pattern would be on my wishlist. May 5, 2015
the LYCRA waistband is a b-a-d idea ... lose it. This just isn't as good as the older version. Waistband really isn't adjustable. Go back to the older version. May 2, 2015
Go back to "old design" I purchased 4 pairs of core shorts in the past. I bought some these newer core shorts (lux band) and the fit seems totally off. They are a lot more snug around the hip area. If these were the "old design", I would have purchased a bunch of colors instead of returning them. April 29, 2015
For accident-poof athletes I could love these shorts with some changes, but I just can't get over the downfalls. They are incredibly light and breathable, perfect for a running junkie like myself. That said, if you wear them a lot, you can't wash them as often as you wear them. They started pilling and stretching in odd places after the second or third wash, even though they never go in the dryer. Also, though this hasn't seemed to be the case with other lulu merchandise I've purchased, they are IMPOSSIBLE to get stains out of. Sweat, mud, even hard water from the washer have all left irreparable marks. Hydrogen peroxide, laundry detergent, spray-on and powder stain remover have all failed to make a difference thus far. In short, if you get them, only get them in a dark color, because lighter shades won't hold up. They're wonderfully comfortable, but they're not built to the standards that the price should command. This is the only issue I've had with a lulu product thus far, and I would be surprised if that changes. April 25, 2015
Good but needs more color I love these short to death. They are the only shorts I work out in now. The only issue is that I wish they had more colors. Its just variations of black and grey which is great for hiding dirt and stains but not always great for looks. April 17, 2015
