Flattering fit & they look good on but for real exercise, they don't work. All other Lulu skirt/shorts I own with the shorts underneath, they have the little plastic gripper edge inside the shorts. These do not therefore they ride up and bunch the whole time you are doing anything.

BEST SHORTS IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!
Most comfy, flattering shorts ever. Still cute, but modest enough to throw your legs around. The inner short is sooooooooo comfy. And NO! DON'T add the grippy stuff on the legs...its perfect without.

Please add the leg gripper....
This is my first review, except the ones phoned in to a GEC. These are amazing shorts and true to size! Love them!!! i would compare the fit and size to speed short, with a built-in compression short. Unfortunately, I would have really liked for them to have had the gel around the legs, like the pacesetter skirts. PLEASE add the gel/ elastic to the legs to prevent the rise!!! Thank you!!!

Love at first sight
I just got these in the mail today and tried them on and LOVE. They fit loose, which I prefer. My Track Attacks were my favs, now these are. Love the petal pop multi - so pretty. I have some shorts with zippers, some without, I carry an armband when I run so I don`t mind one way or the other that these don`t have a zip pocket, especially when they are so awesome. The pockets on the inner liner will work well for gels or whatever for running. It`s nice to have a pair of shorts or two without a zipper on the back.
I know they will be super comfy for running and CrossFit, and prefer to know all my private parts will stay that way during WODs. I can`t wait to try them out. I have them in size 8, could comfortably fit into 6 but as I said, prefer a little room. Compare the way they fit to the Track Attacks, but with a great inner short.
I only wish I knew the exact colours of the flowers on the shorts (both the pinks and the blues) so that I could order some t`s and tanks to match. I will be wearing these a lot! Please make more colours in this style and in the Track Attacks so I can get more!! Thanks lulu!

I love how these shorts look and feel, I was VERY excited for the 2 in 1 because I live in other brands, however, without the grippy stuff around the legs a quick jog from the bedroom to the living room led me to stop and adjust them. PLEASE add the grippy stuff you use in the shorts under the skirts and I will run in these EVERY day.

Best shorts ever.
I've never written a review on any lulu product but I've been waiting so long for the perfect pair of shorts I had to write a review.
All lulu shorts I've owned I've worn once and then sold on ebay bc something was wrong w them: camel toe, too short, too long, ride up, you name it.
I've consistently worn nike shorts bc they have the built in short underneath but the outer layer isn't as comfy as these. These are perfect. I wodded in them with no problem. It's not often that I go on any run longer than 800 m these days but I ran a half in a lulu skirt and know these would've been better.
Several reviewers commented about there being no zipper pouch which personally doesn't affect me, but there is a pouch on the liner short leg for an iPod which could easily accommodate a key or put your phone/iPod in that pocket and key ring around the ear bud cord-- if your buds are in your ears the key isn't going to fall out.
For reference I am 5'4, 145 lbs, muscular build and my normal pant/short size of 8 fit me fine.
My only complaint is the lack of colors offered--hopefully lulu will add these shorts in more solid colors as I'm not a huge fan of patterns!

Run and weight train in them!
I'm very pleased with these shorts. I bought them in-store after trying them on. They transition well from a 3.5 mi trail run to a weight lifting session at the gym. When I wear speed shorts I have to change to crop pants for weights, but these save me the extra step. I like the waistband: not bulky, looks scrunched but the material is really light and soft, and the inner elastic has good form so I'm never adjusting. The folds do hold sweat a little more than a flat band. The outer shorts are very roomy like a Nike short but without the diaper effect. Inner shorts are SO soft but they stay down without any elastic or silicone gripper and they have room for developed quads. If Lulu sold them as their own short I'd buy them and wear them under my other shorts--that's how good they are. I love the front crochet lines as a nice detail and the flower print. I'm so happy Lulu branched out from their normal flat-banded yoga style running shorts and made a truly athletic short! For reference I'm a triathlete, 5'1", 130# and bought a size 6. It fits true to size just like all of my size 6 WUs, pants, crops, and shorts. If I could I'd buy the other colors, too!

Fab shorts. Flattering and LOVE the underlayer - so you can wear them to yoga, circuit class, etc. and be covered when doing legs-in-the-air stuff or other floor work. Light and comfy and look great on! No muffin top - type effect on leg bands of shorts. True to size.

I love these shorts, please make more sizes!
I did a 5-mile hilly run with these shorts today and I love them!
-2 pockets on the side. I find these pockets much more useful than the ones on the Speed Short. Getting things in and out of the pockets was easy and I didn't worry about loosing anything during my run.
-Thinner waist band. Compared to the Speed Shorts, sweat dried much faster on the Flash Short because the waist band isn't as thick.
-The lining is so comfortable. I much prefer this over the brief-style lining.
-I got these in a size 4 and they were a tad loose around the hip/groin area, but not too bothersome for my short run today. The lining is fitted through the thighs, so there was no issue keeping these in place. However if I were to wear these on a longer run, I'll have to carry a few extra Gu's and with the added weight in the pockets, I think having the correct size will be important.
Overall, I LOVE these shorts! I think these will be my preferred running shorts. Please make more colors and make these in a size 2!!
