every day summer short I own 4 pairs of these shorts, 3 solids and 1 print, and couldn't be happier with the fit and feel! They are super lightweight and breathable. I am a slender build and lets just say the shape of my butt is lacking...but these shorts somehow improve that! I wore them all during my honeymoon last summer adventuring in Hawaii, they were great at drying super fast after getting wet. Do yourself a favor and invest in a few pairs! April 12, 2015
LOVE but...SIZING... My first pair (black;speed short;4-way) were PERFECT. I got a size 4, loved the way they fit, worked out tons of times with them, told everyone to buy them. Loved them so much bought a 2nd pair (tiger print), same size, same style. They were a little more fitting then my first but nothing too bad, still loved them. 3rd pair (harbor blue/black), again same size and style but these were much smaller than both my black & tiger print. My friend has the same as me and had the same issue. We figured maybe its a different material but for the price I figured all the sizes should at least be consistent. Most recent pair I bought (black cherry) are definitely not a true size 4. I thought maybe I needed to stretch them out but after 2 workouts these shorts aren't getting any better. It has nothing to do with weight/size change because my other size 4's still fit just fine. We don't have a local lulu to try on EVERY color, just wish sizing was consistent. April 12, 2015
Liner Issue Let me start by saying.... I love Speed Shorts. I have quite a few pairs, a dozen maybe. With that being said, I just bought these in the clear mint/heathered slate color. As some others have mentioned in past reviews, yes the back is longer now on all the new speeds, which I can live with, but on this color, the liner is really visible. Like really visible. Looks like I have major panty line. April 12, 2015
The Perfect Short I cannot even begin to explain how much I love my LLL speed shorts. I have multiple colors, and I get so much use out of them. I run almost everyday, and I have never found a better running short. These are my go to shorts even for lifting weights, spinning, hiking, and even running errands around town. I have washed them many times, and the color is still perfectly in tact, and the quality has held up. Personally, I always order these one size up compared to what I order my leggings in.

LOVE, but TOO SHORT I like these shorts, they feel great and are very cute, but are TOO short for my preference. April 8, 2015
wrinkle problem Speed shorts are my must-have as a runner and I love these shorts so much! But my latest one has a huge wrinkle problem! It never happened to my other 4 pairs (all 4-way stretch) before. When this one came in mail, it had a lot of wrinkles already. But I thought it was maybe because of the packing and I thought it would go away after I wash it. But it gets worse! The pictures I took are after I washed. Is this supposed to happen?! April 8, 2015
Sizing Inconsistent For Different Colors Within the last 4-5 weeks, I purchased 2 pairs of shorts (an all black pair and a "plum peach blushed illusion" pair) for my daughter in a size 2 and both pairs fit wonderfully. I then ordered the harbor blue menthol color in a size 2, and she couldn't get them over her hips. Returned those and ordered the menthol blue in a size 2 again as well as a size 4. Same story with the size 2. Much too small and not even close. And the size 4 were too large in the leg. I'm giving up on the menthol blue color shorts. If you find the right fit, these shorts are very flattering. April 6, 2015
Perfect shorts I don't understand what some people are complaining about. I own about 30 pairs of these Speed Shorts that I've collected over the past 8 years. They have been very consistent in sizing and fit. The only thing to be aware of is the 4-way stretch is more stretchy than the 2-way stretch. They did make ONE design change a couple of years ago. My newer ones are longer and offer more coverage than my old ones. I don't understand why some people are saying they've gotten shorter and smaller??? It's the opposite! Anyway, these are the best shorts EVER! They are so flattering on, much better than other brands! And super comfy. April 6, 2015
Favorite shorts ever I have always loved lulu and these definitely reached my expectations. they are so comfortable when I dance and just around the house, definitely the right choice:) April 3, 2015
Love Them! These shorts are so nice. They are so comfortable, and fit so well!! I did have to go a size up, but thats not a big deal to me. They work good for working out, and just wearing them everyday. I definitely need more! April 2, 2015
