Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable shorts I have a few pairs of thee shorts. I wish they were longer, but they are longer than most of the lululemon shorts for me. I do like these and I would recommend them. I have worn them working out and also swimming and they are durable. December 30, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Core shorts I just got the city lights core shorts in my mail and quickly tried them off. They looked like they were size large and I ordered medium. I wear medium pace breaker shorts and they fit me amazingly and I love them. It's my first time buying core shorts and I am very disappointed on them. The waist band is awful looking. Sorry but i love lululemon but this time I am very disappointed. It sucks as well because I cannot return since they are final sale. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome shorts These shorts are the most comfortable item in my drawer. They are perfect for working out, or just wearing out on the weekends. December 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great, but a little thin. These are great shorts, I like everything about they. They are long enough, comfortable, and fabulous. But they are a little thin, If you are not working out and the weather is a little cold, you will get chilly very easily. December 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Short- Not durable This short has a great fit, and is very comfortable. They are not quite as durable as I would like, they seem to snag easily and wear with contact. December 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great workout shorts that have a special pocket I don't know why some people are saying an iPhone does not fit in the pocket- there's a built in side pocket that my iPhone 6Plus fits in easily and stays put no matter what I do - love it! much better than putting it in the front pocket November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Go from Casual to Gym without changing These shorts are my absolute favorite. I have tried to wear shorts with liners in them and honestly, they are not for me. I prefer to have the freedom between my shorts and compression bottoms. With this being, the core shorts continue to be the only shorts I have. The length is perfect in providing enough coverage for me as well as its mobility to move with me during my everyday errands and workouts. I have used them for yoga, crossfit, spin class, HIIT training, and personal gym workouts and these shorts have kept up every single step of the way. The Luxtreme is unbelievably sweat-wicking and dries much faster than other brand-name sports shorts I have had. Guys, the breathability of these shorts prevent the "Swamp effect", which minimizes this significant distraction while maximizing overall comfort. However, if you are a distance runner, I would not suggest these shorts due to its length because it may cause irritation while rubbing up and down your legs due to your stride. Overall, highly recommend! November 28, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too expensive to shrink I really like the fit and feel of these shorts. I bought 2 pairs. However, I washed them in cold water and hung to dry and they felt very snug around the waist. Wish I had bought a pair one size larger. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect All Around Shorts I have two pairs of the core shorts in different colors and am very pleased with them. They perform great for anything I've done with them, from heavy lifting to HIIT cardio, running, hiking and just wearing them around because they're comfortable. Although they are not as stretchy as the For The People short, they have plenty of flex to them where they do not impede movement regardless of the workout. November 3, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Go back to the old waist band!!! If you don't have a muffin top, the new waist band will ride up to your armpits. I have 5 pairs of the old version and 1 of the new. Will not buy again unless the waist band is changed. October 26, 2015
