Defect/Poor Quality Let me start by saying I?m an avid speed shorts fan (I have over 60 pair of speeds). I have had nothing but positive things to say about speeds and workout in nothing but Lululemon shorts. I recently bought the bumble berry speeds shorts. On the back of the shorts, where there are air vents, the shorts don?t lie flat and there is a space between layers of the shorts creating a bubble. I looked at the shorts and the ?bubble? is due to the shorts not being sewn correctly (there?s excess material which is why it won?t lie flat). I am very disappointed with the quality I have seen recently (I have had two tank tops that I have had to take into stores to get re-sewn because the stitching started coming undone). I?m now stuck in a situation where I?m not sure what I can do. I love the bumble berry color but these shorts are no longer available. My dilemma now is do I keep the shorts and have them look disheveled or do I exchange them for another pattern? I love this color and refuse to believe that paying this much money for workout clothes would be subpar. Let this be a lesson ladies?try on your shorts before you buy them even if you know your size because they may not be sewn correctly. October 28, 2014
love love love These are the best running shorts I've ever owned! Great fit, very flattering, and super comfy for even long runs. October 22, 2014
the BEST!!! I just bought these and I absolutely LOVE them! I couldn't be happier. I was looking for a booty short but still a run short and a gym short all in one without it being too short AND I didn't want too long because that looks weird when you are running. Very important also was price and material; I know I was aiming for the stars with all my demands but I took a shot. These are perfect! Let me say this again to really hit home with anyone who is on the fence about buying these: these are PERFECT! They are the perfect length, the material wicks moisture, no chaffing, back zip pocket to hold my gym key or another small item (too small for an iphone but I don't workout with an iphone in my pocket because heavy and awkward and I'm running and working out, not talking on the phone), great fit, cute and flattering even if you don't have the perfect body yet, but I bet you will because you will go to the gym more now that you've got these amazing shorts! I love it when I take a chance on an item and it works out beyond my hopes, thank you Lululemon, these are an A+ item. October 22, 2014
Why change the cut????? I own 15+ pairs of speed shorts. I have been wearing them for years and always buying new ones UNTIL last spring when you changed the style. Back is TOO LONG and leg openings flare open. Why would you change such a popular style. They were always selling out so why the need to change?? I returned the only pair I've purchased since the change. I WILL NOT buy the new speed shorts and have found myself less interested in visiting your store. Trying other brands to find one to replace my FAVORITE Lulu shorts. Very disappointed!!!!! Please bring back the old speed shorts October 22, 2014
Bring Back Solid Lighter Colors! Love these shorts. Have 3 pairs. I'm a long distance runner and do my half marathons in these. They're so light and breathable- race day shorts and training shorts. Everyday shorts! Wish you would bring back the old cut- the new one seems to flare a little in the thighs. But most importantly, Where are your lighter colors Lulu? Not a fan of floral. Been waiting for some solid colors!!!!! October 21, 2014
Best shorts! These shorts are fabulous! I rarely find short shorts that flatter me, b/c I have muscular inner thighs. The way these are cut, they are super flattering! Bought two pairs and love them! October 14, 2014
Sweet Short Great durable short with fun lines! I love the selection of colors available. I own sever pair. My only request is a bigger back pocket for my iphone. October 12, 2014
Love this fit but more colours please! These are probably my favourite shorts for sports. They fit really nicely and are light weight! Lulu, where are your lighter colours?? Waiting for whites and lighter colours in this fit :D September 29, 2014
Need bigger back pocket for phone! Updating my review on these shorts regarding the back pocket.. I love Everything about them. Except- the 5/5s and surely the new iPhone 6 won't fit into the back pocket. I have a pair of Lululemon speed tights, block it pocket speed shorts, and inspire crops and now the pocket is useless to me. It can fit gels, but I don't use gel. On days when it was raining I would keep my phone in the block it pocket of the speed shorts.... Huge disappointment. The pocket was a little small to begin with. It would fit my iPhone 4 snug and I could barely squeeze it in with the case off September 22, 2014
Bummed I recently purchased my third pair of these shorts online. When i received them they were snagged on one of the seems on the butt. It makes the back of the shorts look rather awkward. I tried to take them back to the store but and they told me I basically had to deal with it because they weren't going to do anything about it. Loved these shorts but disappointed with the quality of lulu products and employees lately. September 21, 2014
