Bring back the old fit! I have many pairs of these shorts and I absolutely love them! I recently purchased a pair in my normal size 4 and they were just a little snug which was weird so I tried the six and they are way too big and the back of the shorts are weirdly long now. I thought I was going crazy or maybe I gained a little bit in the thighs but everyone here is saying the same thing. Plus all of my old shorts still fit perfectly. Please please bring back the old fit! I won't be buying any speed shorts in this style. I'm sad because I love love love the old fit! If people complained that they wanted longer shorts they could have just bought the other styles. June 30, 2015
What happened Lulu?! :( I've been buying the speed shorts for a while now and have only ever had good things to say about them in regards to performance, quality, ect. For reference I'm 5'4" 128lbs with muscular thighs and booty (thank you crossfit). Size 4 have always fit perfectly and I wear them everywhere in and out of the gym. I wanted one more pair of neutral colored shorts to go with everything and stalked the site and our local showroom religiously for weeks for something a little more exciting than black. LOVED the "heathered gray" and ordered them immediately only to find that they fit quite differently than all of my other speed shorts. The waste band is the same and the front length is perfect, but with every new pair the back seems to be getting significantly longer than the front creating this "wing effect" which is not flattering at all. Where they used to be semi-fitted and tapered around the booty they stick straight out now. SO SO SO sad but have to return them. Wish there was more consistency in this product :( June 29, 2015
Comfortable Runner These shorts are my favorite thing to run and be active in. I play field hockey and it requires you to bend down from the knees. I hate when my shorts get stuck on the tops of my thighs because there isn't enough room in the legs width wise. These shorts are so roomy that I don't have to worry about it. Also, the difference in length in the front and back is great. The front is shorter than the back and it makes running easier because there isn't as much fabric in the front but there is enough in the back that it will cover your behind. I definitely recommend to anyone thinking of buying. I wear these all the time and all of my friends wear them and love them. I've not heard a single complaint so far!! :) June 29, 2015
Amazing shorts. run SMALL I have come to find that all Lulu shorts run small. I am a size 4 in leggings and generally a size 6 in shorts. I have multiple pairs of run times shorts in size 6. That being said, these shorts run SMALL. Do NOT listen to people that say they fit TTS. I had to purchase a size 8 in these shorts, two sizes up from my normal legging size. At a size 8 these shorts are awesome, and very flattering, but they do run VERY small. I recommend trying them on in-store before purchasing if possible. Would still recommend as they are great shorts. June 27, 2015
Way Too Tight I purchased a pair of these shorts a year or two ago in a size 4. The colour was what sold me (plum). I ordered my usual size, however they are far too snug on me. Honestly, I think I would require a size 8 in them if I was to buy them again. I am very disappointed in the fit of these shorts. June 26, 2015
great quality but sizing was wrong These shorts are such great quality but a bit too small. I'm 5'3 and 120 lbs and am usually a size 2-4. I ordered a 4 and a size 6 would fit much better. I have muscular legs and butt and with a size 4 they look more like booty shorts. June 26, 2015
Electric Coral Speeds Just received my electric coral speeds. They are BRIGHT, but look amazing. I do find that the speeds with a printed fabric fit a little looser than the speeds in a solid color but my TTS size 4 fit fine. These have a nude coloured liner in them so there is no liner peaking through the bright color. Love them! June 25, 2015
4-Way Stretch Looks Like a Diaper Lulu these are just AWFUL. They hang horribly, have absolutely no shape, and look like you're wearing a diaper that needs to be changed. I sat down on the concrete to do some stretching in these...BIG MISTAKE. The material snags very easily and doesn't last. I have been running in the 2-way stretch for years and own over 10 pair. The 2-way stretch are very flattering, wash well, never snag, and don't show the liner through the fabric. Why have you stopped making 2-way stretch? Bring them back please! June 24, 2015
should come in half sizes Alright, I'll start off by saying that I literally live and breathe Lululemon clothes and I have over 20 pairs of speed shorts that I adore. But as of a couple months ago I ordered the blue tropics and black cherry shorts to find they were EXTREMELY tight. I'm about 128lbs and 5'4 so they should fit just fine and I haven't gained any weight at all (I even lost some pounds due to tennis training). My mom even went with me to the store the other day and I tried on the blanket blue ones to find the 6 was tight and the 8 baggy. I just wish the speed shorts were back to normal, if they do I will certainly be buying a plethora of them once again:) June 24, 2015
