Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! From the moment I put these shorts on, I knew they were magical. They're so lightweight, breathable, and comfortable. I don't want to wear any other shorts now that I've experienced these! I ordered these in black in a size 6. I'm 5'2 130# with muscular legs. The fit is great. No complaints whatsoever!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Extremely disappointing Let me start by saying I am usually a huge lululemon advocate, and have loved every item of clothing I have bought from there, EXCEPT these shorts. I bought a pair of speed shorts a year or se ago and love everything about them. However, I bought a new pair about a month ago in the same size as my previous pair (a 6), and despise the way they fit. They fit way too big around my thighs, and flare out. At first I thought that perhaps they stretched in the wash (even though I always follow washing instructions), but after reading reviews I see that this has happened to many people. It's a shame because I do not wear them anymore, simply because of the size. I would like to bring them back to the store to exchange for a smaller size as I think this would help the issue, is this possible? August 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shorts are great !! Where is this top ?? Lulu, the grey scalloped top in this pic with these shorts......where is this to buy??? I have these shorts and love them and would love to have this top to go with them!!! These shorts are comfy comfy ....love how they fit and move and stay in place. I would love to have this top to go with...but can't find it. Please help me :) August 27, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by White ~ NOT 4 way stretch :( I am not going to give these one star as I should because obviously this is an botch up and not just an individual one. The 4 way stretch are my go to's and I love everything about them; however, I am super bummed as I just received the white and not only are they NOT 4 way stretch (two way clearly, and its on the card) but they have an awful tan liner? Looks like a cheap pair of nana shorts. Thank you Erin in gec for taking care of me. August 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I think I got a lemon? I was excited to get some new speed shorts for fall, but are these the "new design"? I now notice that the models in the photos have their hands by their sides, covering where the shorts flare out. I wasn't anticipating any issues so I already took off the tag. Hopefully I can exchange these or return them for store credit or something. August 25, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by PLEASE MAKE MORE SIZE 2 STYLES i have a pair of these in the marbled multi-color pattern (I forget the name) and i ABSOLUTELY LOVE them!!! I wear them at least once a week and they don't look worn or faded or anything! I have size 2 and they are a bit big on the hips as i have very small hips, but otherwise they are perfect. They are flattering and don't look diaper-ish like many athletic shorts make me do. i just wish there were MORE PATTERNS IN SIZE 2. I have been waiting to buy another pair but i just can't find any size 2 in a pattern i like. Ive been to over 3 locations including constantly checking the website August 23, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed I was so excited to buy these shorts in electric coral. I thought they would be worth the money and reliable. After only a couple wears and a couple washes. Little bits of the fabric are pulling up, like snags or something, but so far I have just worn them for running errands. They don't seem worth the money anymore as they are not reliable. I would not recommend buying these shorts. August 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love these - new colors please Hi lululemon! I love the speed shorts and power y tops but would love some more of the 'bleached' colors or pastel colors including blues and pinks/coral . I have the beach blanket blue speed shorts and love them but haven't seen any like it in forever! They are so cute, fit perfectly and the pocket that fits an iphone is great. More consistency in sizing would be helpful too! Sometimes a 6 in shorts and other times an 8. August 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love but..... When looking for new running shorts after retiring some of my old favorites, by the recommendations of several of my teammates I decided to invest in a few pairs of speed shorts. After trying them on in the store, I was in between sizes and decided to size up since the Sales Girl told me that the inside drawstring would keep them up if the shorts stretched out with wear. Well sadly after only a few wears the solid black shorts are now too big and the drawstring doesn't seem to keep the shorts up as the Sales Girl said. I feel like the shorts are falling off if I do anything quicker than a slow jog. My patterned pair of speed shorts seem to do the same thing, but not as bad as the black. When I did run in the shorts for the first time I loved how light and breezy they felt while I was running. However, I am very sad now that I am left with several pairs of expensive shorts that I can't wear. August 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love them but they have changed! Let me start by saying I live in Lulu and think they are worth every penny I have spent and would recommend their product over any other fitness brand. I have worn all things lulu for 8 years now and started my obsession with the speed short. Love these shorts for everything! However in the last year the shorts have changed shape. They are longer in the black but tighter around the waist and sometimes flare in the leg more. The patterns are the most inconsistent of all and it's a tad frustrating when I order online and every pair is different. A lot different! I feel like I have a pretty educated review considering I own over 15 pairs of these shorts in all colors and patterns. I also coach crossfit and have these discussions with other ladies who have similar complaints. I will continue to buy these shorts because they are amazing and just return the ones that don't fit right but lulu please listen to these reviews and try to standardize these again. August 20, 2015
