If Speedy Gonzales trained for a 10K, we're pretty sure he'd do it in these shorts.
why we made this
We made these shorts to keep us feeling comfortable and cool on training runs and on race day. The lightweight Swift fabric is moisture-wicking and the soft Luxtreme waistband and continuous drawcord ensure a proper fit so we can streak past our personal records. Ándale!
vents at the back for breathability and split legs for freedom of movement
continuous drawcord so you can cinch in a pinch
secure your keys, gels and cards in the zipper pocket on the back of the waistband
chafe-resistant flat seams are designed to save sweaty, sensitive skin from irritation
excellent pour n'importe quelle occasion, que ce soit durant une chaude journée d'été, une séance de coaching sur le bord de la piscine ou encore pour un petit jog!! ajustement parfait à la taille mais qui respire bien!

MY FAV SHORTS EVER!
I own several colors in these shorts. I'm size 4 in all bottoms, 105 lbs., 5'. Love these for crossfit, walking, hiking and running. Very flattering shorts all around. Haven't used it for yoga though.

Amazing and flattering shorts!!
I've never been a shorts person, but I needed something flattering and motivating to wear in the warm summer months. After researching all Lulu shorts, I decided to give these a try because they are designed for running (with the zippered pocket on the waistband). LOVE the no muffin top wide soft waistband!! It's a design quality that makes these shorts so flattering. I took a chance with ordering a size 4 of a limited edition waistband design for spring 2013 because I didn't want to risk my size not being available at my two local stores. The size 4 fits me perfectly, similar to the model. I also bought the black quilt striped waistband design. I love these soooo much!! I'm a long-distance runner, so having flattering shorts is a requirement. I definitely noticed the difference in two-way stretch and four-way stretch at the store, with the solids and prints, and I did not love the two-way stretch.

LOVE the shorts HATE the sizing inconsistencies
These are amazing shorts and super comfortable. However, I have yet to buy a pair of speed shorts that have consistent sizing. I always size up on my speed shorts, which is fine, but sometimes I have to try on multiple pairs of the same size and color to find the correct fit because they are all cut differently. This unfortunately deters me from purchasing online, which is a shame, because my closest Lulu store is 30 miles away

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
I love these shorts! I have FOUR pairs (so far) and I can honestly say I wear them everywhere! However, I have yet to run in them. ?? I mainly use them for everyday errand runs and for my WOD. They are flattering, flexy & VERY comfy. I am a big booty (waist 29, hips 40), 5'4 solid, yet curvy gal and I usually wear an 8 in Lulu, but I went up to a 10 in these for a looser fit. Honestly if Lulu carried a 9 theyd be perfect. But the drawstring really helps in keeping them on my waist. My only complaint, is that I did buy a stripped blue/black pair from the "we made too much" area and they were a bit stiffer than my other ones. ??? But that doesnt change my opinion about these shorts being FAB!

BEST. SHORTS. EVER.
These shorts are literally the cutest, most comfortable shorts ever. I have so many pairs that I wear all the time. In fact, I'm wearing them right now. ;) I have long legs, so they appear to be very short, but I think they're great for a workout class. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND! Especially the black pair. I can wear that with everything!

Best running shorts EVER
I have tried a variety of running shorts and these are the only ones that work for me. I like shorts with a low rise and short inseam, and it seems that every pair that I tried had either too much fabric or was too baggy-- that is, until I found the Speed Shorts. They are super light weight, wonderfully comfortable. They do not ride up at all and I never have to pull on them to adjust them. I don't even feel them. I own 4 pairs and am always on the lookout for other cute colors. One thing to be aware of, though, is that they come in different fabrics, not just colors.
For reference, I am 5'8", 122 lbs and an athletic figure. I get these in a size 4 and they are perfect. I have tried the size 2 as well, which looks better for wearing around, but is a little too snug for a comfortable running short.

I really like my new running shorts. They are very comfortable and it really feels like you are not wearing anything when you run! The only problem with mine is that the part on the back that separates on the outer thigh/ butt part sometimes gets stuck and shows the inner lining or my leg. Not a huge deal but I thought worth mentioning.

I have always been a fan of Speed shorts since I'm 4'11", 124lbs Athletic built. The fitting of the recent Speed shorts have very inconsistent. Some are very snug at the front seam line across the hips while the leg openings have remained the same. I had recently ordered the Pink Frangipani shorts and decided to size up to a 6 just in case. They are really loose. I have a few 6s and they are not as loose as this pair. I wish Lululemon would put in the description whether an item is 2-way stretch or 4-way. It turns out these particular pants are 4 way material, so I could have ordered a 4 instead. I think you do not need to size up in this particular item.

I bought these in black in a size 4. These are meant to be loose-fitting running shorts so I would probably recommend choosing a smaller size if you're an in-betweener. These shorts are incredibly flattering, and vent well. The waistband does get a little sweaty and I wish the pocket was slightly larger. Other than that, these are perfect and I'd definitely buy another pair!
