Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 401 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost there I actually like the new cut with the back slightly longer, BUT some of the patterns flare out in a weird way at the hem, making the short seem very skirt like. I tried sizing down, but then the waist was too small. I'm not sure I will buy anymore until the flare thing is fixed, but still a great improvement over the old speed short, which was just way too short (when I bent over my lower butt cheeks would show) August 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shorts I wasn't a lulu fan, but I have been looking for some running shorts that are cute and fitted, not the baggy running shorts that are most common; shorts that make me feel fun and feminine when I wear them. I saw a women on the trail one day and liked her shorts, and asked her where she got them, and she said "Lululemon", I really hate the idea of buying trendy over priced workout clothes, but I went to a Lululemon and tried some on, to start, I really enjoyed my shopping experience, the people who helped me were so sweet and really made my first time buying Lululemon clothes a perception changing moment. The shorts, ok, wow!!! I love them!!! I wear them hiking, biking, camping, running, walking, paddle boarding, in almost every activity I enjoy. They are comfortable, well fitted, cute and easy to clean. I wear them so often, I am tempted to purchase another pair!!!! I really love these shorts, and I have defiantly changed my opinion about Lululemon clothing, they are well made, wicking, really complement my figure and most important, functional active wear!!! Thank you for making such wonderful shorts, I will be a regular customer..... August 31, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by inconsistant sizing I usually wear a size 4/6 (I'm 5'7 130lbs) in lulu shorts and in these I'm a 6. I already had these in black in a size 6, but I wanted them in another color because I loved the black ones that I got, so I went to the store and got my usual size 6. I went home and took the tags off before realizing that they were WAY to small, like they fit like a really tight 4, maybe even a 2. I was disappointed because I spent $54 on a pair of shorts that I can't even wear. I love these shorts but lulu please become more consistent with your sizing so I don't have to try on the shorts every time I want to buy a pair just so I can make sure that the sizing isn't off or change your return policy so I can return items even if the tag is off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Deceiving in store Let me start by saying i've always been a huge fan of lulu, i buy all of my athletic apparel here, and i've never understood why people write such horrible reviews about their products. that being said, please listen to other reviewers before buying these shorts!! and DON'T BUY THEM!! About three weeks ago, I bought a pair of these in black in store. I'm 5'5'' 127 and found that size 4 was too small and a 6 was too large. The sales associate at the store told me i could get the 6 because there's a drawstring in the shorts. Pulling the drawstring worked at first, but after wearing the shorts a few times, i've noticed a lot of other fit issues appearing. Once form fitting shorts now flare out at the sides at an awkward and unflattering angle, and the back of the shorts has begun to sag to the point where the drawstring can barely help. The shorts are completely unwearable. Not only practically (the drawstring can barely keep them up to the point where i feel like i'm going to moon everyone in the gym) but also aesthetically (pulling the drawstring so tightly makes the material bunch a lot around my waist so i look like i have fat rolls). I'm so disappointed i spent $54 on shorts i've only been able to wear three times. Even worse, i bought them about 20 days ago, and I removed the tag to wear them so they can't be returned or possibly exchanged for a smaller size. Horribly horribly disappointed. August 29, 2015
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
