Run: Speed Short *4-way Stretch
When I saw this came out in the hot pink I was thrilled. I love pink. However when I received them they were way to short and the size 4 was to tight. I'm between a 6 and a 4. If they weren't too short and if the sizing wasn't off, I might have been able to pull this off.
Now today I see a softer pink has come out! LLL please have these bright fun colors come out in the 4 inch length style. Its the same thing just 2 inches longer. Women like me (age 56) don't need to wear these short shorts. Even though I am extremely fit I wouldn't wear them.
They are light weight and wick the sweat great. They fit perfect on the waist, just too short. I haven't found another brand that I really like. For the record I'm 5'6" 125.

Best shorts little pricey
These shorts are my favorite shorts. You can wear them everyday and they won't stink up or get dirty. Spill on your lulu shorts? Get a damp napkin and wipe it right off, the dirt wont show. They don't stick to you like normal shorts which is great. They are pricey which is the down side. They are short shorts so get the longer version. I recommend going to the nearest lulu store to try them on... Warning: when you wash don't wash with cotton they will pill up and that would be a shame for these expensive shorts. Happy Shopping!

not too short!
This is a short that doesn't ride up, doesn't chaff (back or thighs), and wicks away water. My new favorite shorts! There are so many pockets too (perfect for gels when I'm marathon training).

Love these shorts
I've been buying speed shorts for 4 years and love them! The 4 way stretch is a must though, I mistakenly bought 2 way on accident and noticed a big difference in the stiffness of the fabric. They move with you as run and are as comfortable as wearing pajama shorts. Not a bad thing to say about these

Bought these shorts to go to Hot Yoga and they are totally amazing! I was so excited that they fit so well! Now I want to buy more lol

I used to love these shorts!
I'm really glad I read the reviews before I removed my tags! I probably own at least 10 pairs of these shorts if not more. Yes the fit/cut has changed over the years but for the part I've always loved them.
But! I just bought the raspberry glo ones in size 2 which I typically wear and the fit just seems off. The liner gives me a panty line which could be because the fabric seems lighter than previous pairs. The back seems to be cut a bit longer or something because they make my tush look flat. Also in retrospect I shouldn't have bought them because the liner is a dark gray and the shorts are a popping pink. I just really wanted the bright pink shorts but it is pretty much just going to look like I don't understand how to wear underwear that matches my outfit.
My advice would just be to try them on before you buy them if you're a repeat. I'll be trying to exchange these for a better fitting pair. It seems from the reviews it depends on the print you buy the fit......

Flattering and Functional
These shorts are my favourite to wear... everywhere! The lightness of these shorts is great for running, yoga, and bouldering, but I also wear them on casual summer days and lounging at home. The cut is very flattering on my body and I feel comfortable in them. I also like the liner because it gives extra coverage and I'm not worried that I'm accidentally flashing someone if I bend the wrong way. The two pairs I own are both over a year old, so I have yet to experience the change in cuts that other customers have recently described in these reviews. I hope that gets fixed soon!

Speckle parfait pink is not four way stretch.
The parfait pink color is not four way stretch. I was a bit disappointed as I bought these shorts to do cross-fit in. The four way stretch is much better for squatting. I will keep them because I LOVE the color. The fit is great and they run true to size. I'm athletically built, 125#, 5'5'' and I pretty much always wear a four, these held true to that.

Comfiest short ever
This is the only running short you'll ever need. Period.
I will agree with some of the other reviews though. I've been buying these shorts consistently for the past six years and have noticed a few variations in the fit. They are indeed longer and some have rode higher than others. Regardless, they're still my favorite. They're super comfy. It's like wearing a cloud to cover your bum when you run. Yeah, they're that awesome.
Ordered a size 6 (5'3 130lbs) and they fit good. I go back and forth between 4 and a 6 in these shorts. I ordered them online and they fit well enough that I won't return them to try a 4.

Get the size RIGHT!!!
I've been buying Speed Shorts for a few years. I fluctuate between size 8 and 10...majority are 10s, however, EVERY PAIR FIT DIFFERENTLY!!! And yes, they are ALL 4 way material. I just received my order of the hot pink and blue pairs that came out last week. The 10 in the blue fit more like the they used to a few years ago. The 10 in hot pink fit like a size 6!!! So FRUSTRATED! Some are longer. Some are wider. Why does this keep being an issue?? Are there multiple warehouses sewing these garments?? And now the pink are sold out so I am just out of luck I guess...oh and I get to pay the 5$ to return items that are clearly defective. I just don't understand why a company of this caliber can't make a consistent item for their loyal and well paying customers.
