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're serious about running so we aren't afraid to show a little leg. We designed these lightweight shorts with plenty of room to keep up with our full strides. Made of breathable Swift Ultra fabric that's woven for strength, they have a comfortable brief liner to help keep our jewels from jiggling.

Nice Looking shorts, bad functionally
Other Lulu shorts I have owned are some of the best, these are subpar for what is supposed to be a premium product. The pocket is basically useless and they chafed which I never get from other shorts I own. They look great but that is about it.

Doesn't get much better
I've long been on the search for great running shorts and these fit the bill! I really like the length of the short, the light feel of the fabric, the light weight of the shorts (much lighter and better than last year's precise shorts), and the fit of the liner. It holds everything in place without being constrictive or uncomfortable. In fact, I barely noticed them on mile repeats. I believe the description is inaccurate, though--the liner seems to be a brief liner to me (which is what's depicted), not a boxer-brief liner. I don't know yet about all the pockets in the liner. I like the idea, but worry about the gels I carry being directly against my skin over the course of a long run of 2-3 hours. I would love to see this in more colors and a bigger line for men's running.

Perfect length, liner and fabric
So, full disclosure: I live for short shorts. I wish Lulu made 3" surge shorts - I would probably have 5 pairs if they did.
Anyways, as a avid distance runner these shorts are perfect. 5" length allows for unrestricted movement. Brief liner offers the perfect amount of support with no chafing issues. Zip pocket is convenient.
Only complaint: please make these available in more colors so that we avid short short lovers can have more colorful bottoms!
