Please bring back the old Speed Shorts! I have many pairs of these shorts, but the last 2 that I have purchased have a different cut. I thought it was maybe just the one pair but now it is another. The sides of the shorts stick out on the sides and look weird and unflattering..please go back to the old cut of the shorts! July 3, 2015
Loved them until two of the seams ripped!!! I own a lot of Lululemon clothing and love lulu. I had these shorts for not even a year, but within that time got good use out of them. They were comfortable and breathable until just the other day when they ripped and became too breathable. Two of the seams that attach the upper part of the shorts (waist band and zipper pocket) are no longer attached to the bottom part! It is strange and I was very upset to see this! July 3, 2015
No Ride, No Muffin This is my first pair of Lululemon shorts and I could not be more satisfied. I was hesitant in making this purchase, as I do not like lining in my shorts, I prefer to wear spandex underneath aside from a heftyer price. I'm certainly glad I bit the bullet, these shorts fit perfectly. I'm a weight lifter so these shorts are short enough to allow for a great range of motion, but do a good job as keeping all personals covered. I'm most please with the wide waist band which keeps from causing a muffin top and these shorts do not ride up at all. In reference to sizing, I regularly wear a size 4 (5'4" and 135lbs), however with these I needed a 6 and as a 6 they fit perfectly. July 2, 2015
Bring back the TURBO's! I ordered these shorts, because I've been waiting for the return of the turbo's, and it looks like it won't :-( The fit of these shorts are fine and quite flattering. However, I prefer my shorts 1 or 2 inches a bit longer. Then vents at the back, however assuring that they won't "open" to reveal the underpants, make me feel like they would. The Turbo's don't have the same issue, and they are cut in a similar fashion. They're great, but I'm not completely a fan. July 2, 2015
Cute colors but not right for me I love the colors that speed shorts come in, which is why I sometimes try to buy these, but they used to be pretty short, but now it feels like they are even shorter (when I returned them the salesgirl said they haven't changed but they do feel shorter and there are other reviews that feel the same way). If you have the body for these and don't mind short shorts these are awesome. For me, I'll stick to the run times short but just wish they would get some of the cute colors the speeds get!

Cute and flattering! I love these!! I have thunder thighs and these shorts give ample room and don't hinder movement. They're cute and flattering. I love the thicker waistband as well. If you're thinking about getting this short, do it! July 2, 2015
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
