Meh I felt like I needed an in-between size in this short. I like the fit of the legs on the 2 but the fit of the waist/butt is better on the 4. I ended up buying the 4, which is my usual Lulu bottoms size, but I don't like how baggy the legs are on me. I don't feel comfortable laying down to do sit-ups etc. in a class because they are so baggy. I have to cinch the waist for proper fit but the 2 seemed so tight that it was pulling across the front. They are very lightweight and comfortable, but they are certainly not my favorites. May 2, 2015
Great shorts-beware of fit issues! I ordered my first pair of speed shorts about a month ago and have purchased two additional pairs since. I'm so happy with the first two pairs! I ordered a size 6 based off the size charts and they fit like a dream. They hug in all the right places and are very comfortable and flattering. I rec'd my most recent pair in the mail yesterday and am totally bummed out to say the fit was off :( I'd been keeping my eye out for the black brushed animal white black speeds since seeing they'd dropped recently in Canada. I was SO excited to get them and ordered them the minute I saw they'd been uploaded in the US. When I got them and tried them on I was so disappointed in the fit. My other speeds hug my thighs and fit with the curve of my legs. These ones flare out on the sides making it look like my thighs have wings. I'm hoping this is just a defective pair and I plan on ordering another pair in my size 6 with the hopes that the fit is more consistent. Overall these are the most flattering shorts I've EVER worn! I'll keep buying them-hopefully wiithout any more fit issues. May 1, 2015
The most functional shorts LOVE these! I don't have to worry about them riding up and the liner stays in place. The camo pair have to be my new favorite. May 1, 2015
LOVE the shorts I absolutely love the cut and design of these shorts! Very flattering and super comfy for my athletic thighs! I have 35.5-36' hip width and size 4 is perfect to me. The only thing that i don't like is, i got the clear mint and heather grey, the fabric is kinda see through so with the lining..it's like panties lines. Lulu this is my first pair of speed shorts please pay attention to the fabric..or make these shorts without linings. April 30, 2015
The Only Bottoms I am not Afraid to Purchase After the whole incident of recalling yoga pants, I have been skeptical about purchasing yoga and running pants/capris because 1) poor ratings are still an average of 2-3 stars, 2) they are expensive - if they are expensive, they better demonstrate the quality in their products, and 3) crazy things happen to the products in a short amount of time. Because of that, I try to purchase products that look promising and will last me quite some time. Based off of my experience, I find that these shorts live up to the quality that lululemon claims they have. I own about 6 pairs, and they still look relatively new after a year. I wash these shorts every week (cold machine wash and placing the shorts in a separate wash bag before throwing it into the rest of the laundry) due to the activities I participate in, and they have yet to disappoint me. None of the stitches or threading has come undone. I strongly recommend these shorts if you are looking for quality. April 29, 2015
So comfy! I love these shorts! They are soooo comfy, it feels like you're not even wearing pants! great for running and such a nice, light material! I'm 5'7 and 118 pounds for reference and I have a size 4 in black. They fit so nice! A size 2 may have been better only because the butt is kind of loose, but everywhere else fits perfectly.

IN LOVE These are my go-to shorts for any activity. They are perfect for working out and running errands in, especially in the summer. You can't own too many pairs of these. April 28, 2015
Ride up I bought 2 pairs of the speed short, and they both ride up and cause chafing when I run. I'm also really short and these look way too short to wear in public. April 28, 2015
I bought my first pair of speed shorts in 2010. I still wear them till this day! They have traveled with me all over the globe! They're good for running, hiking, weight lifting, every activity!!!! I'm disappointed however that the fit and length of the newer versions of this short has changed. I bought a new pair recently and they seem much bigger or longer. I like the new colors though! So please bring back the original fit! April 28, 2015
PLEASE MAKE THE RUN TIMES IN MORE OF THESE COLORS I am in LOVE with 90% of the color combos LL makes the Speed short in.....but at 5'9 and all leg - I would look RIDICULOUS wearing this short of an inseam to run in. PLEASE!!!!!! LL make the Run Time short in more of these color (like the new electric coral color combos and painted lady)... most of the Run Times have been darker in color or simply not that interesting - just look at the number of color option difference between the 2 styles - I would buy tons more shorts with better color option....RT's are basically the longer version of the Speed so PLEASE start offering the same color choices!!!!!!
