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).

keep your shorts on! a stretch drawcord in the waistband helps with that
Great Workout Shorts
The new core short version is better and worse.
The side pocket is not as deep and is a struggle to get an iphone in the pocket. Also the inner key pocket is lower in the pocket and hits in a funny place when you work out.
The new waist band is nice, but the other two will make me wear the old ones unless something is changed.

Love the Core Short, HATE the inconsistency
Have a few of these shorts and loved (past tense) them. BUT, I am growing increasingly frustrated with your brand and among other things the inconsistency in sizing. I've witnessed the quality of Lululemon decline over the 10+ years I've worn it. I bought two of the newer colors in the past week and one of the colors has already been returned to the store for a full refund. The ONLY reason that the second pair wasn't returned is I made the mistake of pulling the tags off before I tried them on. As soon as I put them on I could immediately tell the cut was different than the two black core shorts that I bought within the past two months. They are shorter and tighter. In addition, the pocket on the side was redesigned to be shorter so now my iPhone has to be squeezed into it. I've found myself buying this brand less and less the past two years.

Side pocket no longer fits for my iphone?
I have 50+ pairs of core shorts and sad to see the side pocket where I have stashed my iphone for years has shrunk down, it doesn't fit.. Bummed out. These shorts were the best ever. As a personal trainer/gym owner i can't tell you how beneficial it was I never had to dig into my shorts it stayed put and was out of the way.

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.
