Please go back to old waistband
I really like these shorts for working out...the colors, fit, styling, and material. However, I really don't like the waistband that's on them now, too ladylike. A couple years ago (or maybe less than that) they had a traditional waistband that was much nicer looking in my opinion, and also more comfortable. If they go back to that I'd buy a lot more. The positive is that my core shorts from a couple of years ago still look great so the quality is there, thanks!

These are the best shorts I have ever owned. I have 8-10 pairs of them and they are the only shorts I wear to work out in. With that said, you guys really need to do a better job of choosing color and prints for these shorts. It really shouldn't be that difficult. No man wants to wear polka-dots or some of the ridiculous polka dots that are the norm rather than the exception. How about a simple navy or a Carolina blue? For some reason, you do a much better job choosing colors for the Pace Breakers. What gives?

Love the shorts, Need more basic colors
Absolutely love the shorts, no question about the comfort and fit from me. I just can't get over the ridiculous colors/designs that they come out with. I rarely go a day without wearing at least one piece of lulu clothing and would probably never wear anything else if there were more realistic designs for these shorts. I actually prefer to wear these outside the gym and I don't think I could pull off enormous POLKA DOTS on my shorts.
Overall, love the shorts, just please come out with more normal designs and colors for every day wear.

Go back to the OLD waistband design!!
Please please go back to the old waistband style from a few years back (the scrunchy comfortable waistband, like the women's tracker short)!!! Thats all my boyfriend raves about is how comfy the older waistband is compared to the current one.
I use to buy these for him all the time, but now he won't let me get him anymore more due to the uncomfortable/tight waist band. He also complains of the restricted side pockets. Go back to the old style!!
Come on lulu..listen to the consumers!!

Didn't wash well
Got these for my husband as his first piece of lulu a few weeks ago, and they have washed terrible! Its like they are faded now with tiny pills. I washed them with all of my stuff, exactly the same, and I haven't had this problem on anything of mine. Too bad. It only confirmed his theory that lulu was overpriced and quality didn't meet the standard. I don't blame him though- the shorts are basically unwearable after maybe three washes.

Great multipurpose shorts
I have bought 3 pairs of these shorts. They are extremely comfortable and look great.
I don't always have time to get laundry done, but these shorts maintain their freshness for 2-3 workouts which I love.
The thick waistband provides excellent support and the shorts fall at a great length.
Although, I have had two of my pairs get scuffed up pretty easily. They are virtually unnoticeable marks but you should be careful around rough surfaces.

5 star a year ago, 3 star now
I discovered the core shorts a year ago and have the old style that people have been raving about. I have a pair of the old version for every day of the week. I do everthing in these shorts and wear them daily. Form, style, fit and functionality top notch.
I just bought the new version of the core shorts and while still good, I am not a fan of the waistband. Its too thick in length makes it ride high on the body. I am a bodybuilder that is carrying 5% body fat right now. Still, I have a little muffin top how these shorts ride. lol.
I don't plan to being bodybuilder lean in the offseason so it will be interesting what it looks like being less lean.
Everything else are minor details...I plan to keep on buying
Will there be improvements on this product?
The old version was perfection! Giving feedback because I love the old version of core shorts.

Am I wearing shorts?
Fantastic shorts to wear no matter how you train! They are very light weight, they fit very well but also feel very roomy. The pocket size is substantial making the shorts very practical as you can keep wearing them after you train and carry your wallet and phone with you, they also look stylish.
And it doesn't matter what you do for training, whether it's Weight Training, High Intensity Training or Yoga, these shorts move well and at times it feels like you aren't wearing anything at all. In a squat movement, these shorts don't feel like they are going to get in the way, while running, the shorts stay where they are, they don't 'ride up' your legs, and the waist band is tight enough to keep them sitting where they should.
Probably one of the best shorts I have worn.

I love Lulu clothes and have 6 pairs of shorts. I got the red core shorts today and HATE them. my favorite feature (and why i recommend to so many) is the cell phone pocket on the side. when I'm working out, i love how secure my phone is? no worrying about it sliding out! well, as others have said, the new changes are horrible! i have an iPhone 6 and it does not even fit HALFWAY in the cell phone pocket? why even bother? please go back to the old shorts! what's worse is that i bought the "black cherry" color WHICH SHOWS AN IMAGE OF A GUY PUTTING HIS IPHONE IN THE CELL POCKET! how deceiving. i hate that i have to make a trip back to return these
