Best Shorts! I can't say enough good things about these shorts! They are my all time favorite. I have them in multiple colors and am always looking forward to more. September 16, 2014
BEST SHORTS EVER These shorts are probably my favorite article of clothing I have from Lulu (and trust me thats a lot). The fit is great and they make your legs look awesome! Can't get enough pairs of them! September 13, 2014
Loving curious jungle! I happened upon the curious jungle multi/black colorway in a store, and was pleasantly surprised. While i haven't found this year's floral prints to do much for me, the Speed Short in curious jungle looks not like exercise clothing, but rather like casual shorts, making these a lot more versatile. The print just whispers "Hawaii" to me, that I feel like I'm getting a mood lift from looking at it! :) I love the fit and that these will coordinate with many color tops. Fit-wise, I find these to be comfortable as 4-way tends to be, and kept to my LLL size 4. I wish there were a solution to the slight muffin top the waist band produces on my body type. I'm 24" waist 35" hip but not athlete-lean, and the supposed "won't dig" waistband does dig, and I feel it and tug at it after a while. September 13, 2014
LOVE these shorts I bought these Run Speed shorts in the curious jungle pattern, and love them! I wasn't sure about the shorter length (I had debated between this style and the hotty hot shorts, which were a bit longer), but decided to go with them. In the end, they have been great for muscle and step classes at the gym, and for simply throwing on to wear on the weekends. The pattern lends itself well to wearing with red, pink, plum, black, name it, and the top will "go"! And the fabric is silky smooth, but with the give needed for intense cardio moves. Very happy with these... thanks, Lulu! (For reference, I am 5'4, 110 and size 4 fit well.) September 12, 2014
great overall short I have these in several patterns. Overall a great running and crossfit short. I love the length for weightlifting - they stay out of the way! September 11, 2014
Love these! But NEW COLORS PLEASE Lulu! These shorts are amazing. I use them for running, lifting, yoga...everything. They are so versatile and the perfect length. HOWEVER: you guys have had these same stale colors sitting online for months! Switch it up! Enough flowery patterns that look like little girl clothing. We are strong women, we need bold and bright. Bring us something new! I've been forced to shop elsewhere just for a little variety in color... Thanks! September 10, 2014
Not 4-way I have several pairs of speed shorts and was happy to see more colors. I bought the heathered slate/deep coal yesterday which were supposed to be 4-way stretch but they are definitely not. I'm 5'0 about 118 lbs and I got a size 4 as usual and they're very tight on my legs. I wanted to wear them to Crossfit yesterday, so I took the tags off before putting them on and now I'm stuck because they are not stretchy whatsoever. I'm rating a 2 because of the fact that they're supposed to be 4-way stretch and they are in fact not. Lulu- please be more consistent in sizing! September 10, 2014
Staple, BUT slate is not 4-way stretch! Speed shorts are my staple shorts Five stars, however this review only pertains to the experience I just had with the slate grey speed shorts. I recently ordered the slate in a 6 and it was delivered to me in a sz 4, with a 6 tag attached. So bummed, because the 6 is sold out and I can't even get them now at the mistake of Lululemon. Also the slate is not 4- way stretch, just FYI. I am truly disappointed. September 7, 2014
slate barely 4-way stretch I actually love speeds, so my rating is because Lulu can't describe them right. Just wanted to let everyone know, that they claim the heathered slate are 4-way stretch, but they are definitely more like the 2-ways. I was really excited when lulu decided to separate the 2-way from the 4-way so that you didn't have to guess, but they missed it here. I usually size up in the 2-way or don't even buy, so it was a surprise when I opened the package to find 2-ways in my package. Get it right, Lulu. Seriously. September 7, 2014
These are amazing. I have three pairs of these shorts now and wear them for running, hiking, biking, you name it. They fit wonderfully and I would recommend them for anyone into the same above activities. I have no issues with them falling down during runs and they fit true to size for me. The only thing I don't like is the continuous drawstring. It would have been better if it wasn't made that way. PS. I never wash them according to LL's guidelines and I've never had any issue with them fading, or piling or anything that seems to be the case with their yoga pants and running crops. And I wash them after every use. Because no one likes stinky September 4, 2014
