Short but amazing I bought these shorts awhile ago and I love them! I took them for a run on the treadmill right away and they felt great and did not ride up. The only thing is that they are very short depending on how long your legs are. I am 5'7'' and 140 lbs and size 6 fit best, but size 8 would've worked too. May 25, 2015
These fit great! These were my first pair of speed shorts I ordered plain black- I am petite 5'1 (110 pounds) and these shorts fit great. I ordered a size 4 and they are a good length and fit overall! May 21, 2015
Sizing changes, yet again.... I purchase 5-10 pairs of speeds a year. Always a size 4. I was looking forward to the arrival of my latest speeds purchase, the iridescent print. Sadly they do not fit. Too small. They pull in the front a lot and just overall fit smaller. I took them into a store to switch them for a 6 and was surprised to find the 6 was way too big. I have been sized out of speed shorts this summer. As an avid runner, I am crushed. These are my favorite of the lululemon shorts. May 20, 2015
Only Shorts I Wear I have an absurd collection of Speed Shorts. With a small waist, big butt, and muscular legs, finding shorts that actually fit and flatter me is a challenge. A few years ago I discovered the Speed Short and never looked back. I used to buy the longer shorts like this Lulu carried, until I discovered that the shorter length of the Speed Short is actually MORE flattering to muscular legs. I currently own 6 pairs and older pairs I've given away to friends after tiring of the print or color (they are still in great condition). My friends and I all say the same thing: Are these magic shorts? No matter how I'm feeling, whether I'm bloated or not, these shorts flatter. They are so comfortable on the waist and the length is perfect. I have noticed a bit of difference here and there between printed fabrics, but the solids are always spot on in terms of fit and sizing. I wear them to run, lift, ride my bike, and just run errands. They are one of my most comfortable items of clothing. As long as Lulu makes these I will buy them. May 20, 2015
I love these shorts but I have so many pairs of speed shorts, from before they started making them so long in the back. Im a short person so the shorter, older speeds looked and felt perfect on. The new fit makes it look like a have a diaper on. I see that a lot of taller gals need them to be even longer than they are now. PLEASE make these shorts in a short people version and tall people version! May 20, 2015
New Fave Item I never used to pay attention to any Lulu shorts because i'm not a short-wearer. Well, weather was getting hot and I just picked up running. Went into my local lulu to find something to run in... and I left with 3 pairs and ordered 2 more online in different prints and colors! I loved the fit! I tried on all styles of shorts, but this one fit me best. I love the length and the liner inside. Also love how it doesn't ride up in between the thighs and the fabric is nice, cool, and durable! I would definitely keep purchasing these! May 19, 2015
Too Short!! I love these shorts and they are so comfy! They come in great patterns but are way too short! I am a dancer with long legs and would love a longer length or for you to make the tracker short in these patterns! These shorts are great if you aren't going to be doing any high intensity workout because if you move at all your tush will show! May 19, 2015
Love These wish they were more consistent I love the Speed short, they are comfortable and breathable. I like the shorter length. I just bought the fresco blue pair, their my fifth pair of speed shorts, and they fit nothing like my others. they are to tight through the hips and pull and ride up because of it. makes me really sad because i love these shorts and i loved the color when i saw it. I was hoping maybe they would loosen up or something but no such luck. fix this lulu. May 12, 2015
Wish you guys would make a version for tall girls I love the color combinations of the speed shorts, but like a previous reviewer, I am 5'10 with a 35" inseam, and these shorts basically show my entire butt and wear like a pair of bikini bottom panties. The groovy run/run times shorts are way better and *hello Lulu*, fit like the speed shorts on those of us over 5'8-ish. You guys would make a KILLING selling speed shorts "long" with a 4" inseam and the same colors, but for some reason that isn't ever brought up in your R&D meetings. Big Mistake, huge. The longer inseam shorts just stink in the colors, so I wear other brands. Which aren't as good, and cost just as much, so you guys are missing out on a huge market. May 12, 2015
Longer length??? I LOVE all of the colors you have for your speed shorts...but for us long-legged or more modest gals, a longer short with these colors would be much appreciated! The run times and tracker shorts are the perfect length but unfortunately they don't come in these color combinations...makes me sad! It would be FABULOUS if it could come in both lengths to make everyone happy! May 11, 2015
