Run: Speed Short *4-way Stretch
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!

Cute, but wouldn't buy again
I was really excited to get these shorts because I've never purchased from Lululemon before. I received them 3 days ago and thought they were so cute! I took off the tags today to wear them for my run and didn't notice this before I wore them or I never would've cut the tags off...the black stripe that goes from side to side, across the butt, isn't completed sewn on. It's only sewn every couple of inches so it's like there are multiple "holes" in the shorts. This just seems bizarre to me. I feel like they could tear easily. I would not have spent this money on them had I known they were sewn like this.

Great workout shorts!
I just received my 2nd pair of speed shorts a few days ago and I absolutely love them! They are the most comfortable shorts that I have to work out in! I will definitely be ordering another pair in the near future! The quality of the shorts is great and stretches which ever way you do. Just an all around comfortable pair of shorts! Thanks for a great product!

I loved the look of the speed shorts when my friend bought her first pair. They were very cute so I went to the store to purchase some of my own. When trying them on I was disappointed to find that the leg holes were too large. I have a skinnier thighs but really thought lulu would be the answer.

Ready for any sport short!
This was my first lulu purchase a few years ago after a running magazine had listed these as "the best running shorts". I'm so happy I tried them, unlike other running shorts with a liner, I don't feel like I'm wearing a diaper! I was amazed at how flattering these shorts are considering I have short, muscular legs. 5'4" 145 lbs size 8 TTS. I also find these great for outdoor yoga classes because of the 4 way stretch, I can move with ease and stay cool in the hot sun. I have many of the 2 way stretch, but now I want more of the 4 way for the stretch factor. I wash these in a delicate cycle and air dry, they still look like new after a year.
