Run: Speed Short *4-way Stretch
Blows Nike shorts out of the Water!
I cant stand how Nike's are so baggy and look like you're wearing a diaper in them. I LOVE Lulu's speed shorts. I'm 5'10' and 140 lbs and a size 6 fits me perfectly! They look super flattering and the length isn't so short that I can't run in them without them riding up, but they're also not too long. Very cute even on my somewhat smaller butt.

This is the first workout short, or really any short, I've found that is super flattering on me. I think it would flatter any body type. They are also very versatile! I bought them for my crossFit workouts (they are awesome, i.e. they stay in place and don't show too much) but they also look cute with a shirt for around town or the playground etc.
I'm 5'8" 130 lb. slim/athletic build and normally wear size 4 in everything. However, I went by the measurements in the sizing chart and a size 6 fits perfectly. I tried a size 4 to be sure, and they were way too snug. Make sure you measure your hips according to the chart!

Disappointed yet again...
This is by far my favorite pair of shorts. Since purchasing the Run Speed Short in 2009 they've fit perfect!!! In the last year, not so much. This how ever isn't my idea of fun... ordering a pair of shorts knowing they should fit, but they don't. Having to send them back & reordering. I started looking at where the clothing is being made. Anything made in the Philippines doesn't fit & I have to go up a size. For us online shoppers, can you let us know where the clothing is made please. That way I won't be disappointed when I get my purchase at the door. The 6 fits like a 4.

These shorts rock! I tried on a 6 which was a little snug so I went up to an 8...Perfect! I wear these shorts for a HIIT class - think burpees, squats, lunges, plyometrics - so they work great for all that movement. The waistband is fantastic and I could wear these things all day long. I will be back for more in some other colors.

Love Love Love these Shorts
Awesome shorts! These are my go-to shorts and I will wear them forever and a day.
I wear these shorts for my workouts as well as every day when the weather dictates, as they are more comfortable and look fabulous over and above any cotton shorts. The material is lovely and falls so well. They are cut a bit shorter in the leg which is perfect for my vertically-challenged body (5'2"). The waist band is smooth and sits flat which makes them sit nice under a fitted top.
The lighter colours are to beware of when doing more sweaty pursuits. I have worn a lighter pink during my cycling classes and let's just say, not great for my participants to look at. But on the positive side, the sweat dries extremely fast and all is grand again. (Sorry to share but I think is an important feature to draw your attention to).
Would recommend in a heartbeat.

my life revolves around these shorts
After falling in love with my lululemon leggings, I decided to buy a pair of lulu shorts. I immediately fell in love with them from the moment I tried them on. They are so comfortable, do not get baggy in the crotch area like a lot of other athletic shorts, and stretch in every direction I want them to! The built in underwear is very comfortable, sometimes I forget I'm wearing shorts because they are so lightweight and stretchable. I wear these shorts multiple times a week and love them! I don't know what I would do without them, they are my go to shorts.

Good in the beginning
I purchased 2 pairs of these shorts and they seemed to fit well for a while although one of my pairs ripped at one of the seams in the back and was very disappointed with this. I'm not sure when this happened or how but it did and I am upset with this because they are pretty expensive. I hope lululemon will accommodate for this and I would like to get a replacement although I'm not sure how to.

do a couple laps in the store, if you can...
Well, I really wanted to love these. After reading reviews and hearing good things from my friends, I went ahead and got a pair. I primarily planned to use them for running, which is what these are designed for.
Pros: I was thrilled when I pulled them out of the package, because the fabric is great. It feels wonderful next to my skin, and clearly is very breathable and has good stretch. I also liked the zip pocket in the back.
Cons: Pretty much everything else... The fabric seems wonderful at first glance, but if you're going to sweat on your runs, I'd suggest only buying these in black. The aqua color I got was showing sweat stains almost immediately. Also, the fit! These have such a short inseam that within 5 minutes, they were riding up like crazy. The side seams are fine, but the crotch inseam is super small and bunchy. Yes, they're low rise, but even with them pulled down as far as I was comfortable with, they crotch was still riding up as soon as I took a step. Really distracting on a run. The other deal breaker is that the waist band rolls. The first time I wore these, the waist band was rolled up double at the end of my run. When they were washed, the problem with the waist band was unresolved. And finally, the venting in the back... This is just a poor design choice, in my opinion. I wear longer tanks/tees when I run, and the little vents on the back of the shorts were catching the seam of my top, and pulling up. That means that the small open vents were folded into each other, and creating little "windows" where there shouldn't be any...
Overall, a disappointment. I love Lulu shorts, are other shorts styles Lulu makes that are far better for running, and don't have all these issues.

Speed Short Fit
I have bought speeds for the past couple of years and the new ones are noticeably longer in the back and tighter in the waist. I don't understand how you can change the waist size of shorts. They really need to go back to the old fit!

i love these shorts! nike tempo shorts were always my go-to shorts and still are when I'm not wearing these, but these are definitely a great replacement for them! they are breathable and from lacrosse practice to errands i do everything in them. but lulu...make more colors!!!! i have-not gotten these in awhile bc i cannot find another color i like enough to buy. only bc i don't know how much i would wear them in some crazy print. but overall these are my favorite short. i love the tall but thin waistband and THE FABRIC ahhh i love the feel of the thin fabric!! its so great for sweating. these shorts are so comfortable and fit me great. I'm 5'3 and 95 pounds and a 2 fits me perfect!
