Rated 4 out of 5 by ReeKoral A little snug
This is my second pair of these shorts and these ones seem to be a bit tight everywhere. I'm 5'9, 140 lbs and the last pair I bought were 4's and they fit perfectly. I would still buy these shorts (they're my favorites) but I would suggest either going up a size or trying them on in-store first (I ordered them online).

Rated 3 out of 5 by LMS123 size issues
I have half a dozen pairs of these shorts. They are my favorite but I haven't been able to buy a new pair for the last year because the sizing has changed. The size 4 is so small that you can see the outline of the inner liner. This is not a cute look if you were wondering. But the 6 is so large that they practically fall off. I wish Lulu would figure out this sizing issue. Until then I will have to find a new brand of shorts.

I ORDERED A PAIR OF RUN SPEED 4 WAY SRETCH SHORTS. ITS THE 3RD PAIR I HAVE IN THAT SIZE. THE OTHERS FIT GREAT BUT THESE ARE SO LOOSE EVEN WHEN I TIE THE WAIST TIE THEY ARE HUGE. I LOVE LULU BUT VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE INCONSISTENCY OF THESE SHORTS.

This summer has been brutal in SoCal and I would have melted without these shorts. They don't stick to me when I'm sweating and they are the perfect length (no booty hanging out). I love these, I have 4 pairs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by runnermommer Love these for running
I've been buying speeds for several years now. I happen to prefer the new cut (slightly longer in the back) to the old. The liner stays put during long runs. The back pocket is large enough to put an iphone 6 in as well. These also hold up very well - I still wear my speeds that are 3+ years old. I am 5'3" and 110 lbs and I wear a size 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SpeedHoarder My Favs!
The quality of these shorts is seriously the best! I have many pairs, and all of them have held up through many intense workouts (weightlifting, CrossFit), as well as day to day wear. However, the sizing recently is really throwing me for a loop. I feel like the liner in some of my recent pairs is really small, but going up a size doesn't work as they become too big in the waist....But I'd rather rock the vll (visible liner line) than cinch them up at the waist. The length in the back is really unflattering, too. All of this being said, it really hasn't been a deal-breaker for me! I just make sure to try them on to see which particular ones in my size work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 3plustwins Favourite Shorts! Inconsistent Sizing
I run. A lot. These are my favourite FAVOURITE running shorts of all time. They generally fit well, and the cut is really flattering on my backside aka butt. I love the fabric, the colours, the patterns...I have a problem-I have a whole CLOSET full of speeds.
The latest bunch have all been inconsistent with sizing. The regular size 4 I wear is now suddenly massive. I have not lost weight, I can tell you that much. They are longer in the back than previous releases, and flare out on the sides. Looks like grandma's panties.
It won't stop me from ordering them and trying them on, and sadly returning. I will keep trying Lulu! I promise, I will keep trying! Just bring back the sizing from last year...and I will start keeping more!

Rated 2 out of 5 by rundance Changed the sizes
I have 5 pairs of the run speed shorts which I've been running in for over a year, and I absolutely love them, but all of the sudden when I go to buy a 6th, in my usual size (size 6), they were way too tight around the front! At first I thought it was just the pair I ordered, so I went into my local lulu store but sure enough all shorts in size 6 were too tight. I tried to go up a size but those were just massive. Why would you change the sizing! Guess I have to find a new go-to short...

Rated 2 out of 5 by crazylulufanatic careful!
These are my teen daughter's favorite shorts! She wears them so much I bought her a 2nd pair of solid black. I didn't have her try them because they are her usual size 6. Then she takes off the tag and puts them on and says they are way to small and can't wear them! I thought she was crazy and then she showed me and sure enough they are a completely different cut than all her other Run speed shorts and way too tight. What happened Lulu? did you change the sizing or cut on us??? Be careful if you buy with out trying. Now I have a new pair that I can't return

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frenchiehorselover I have 5 pairs!
I have 5 pairs ! I jump in a pair the minute I get home. I wear them to relax or to go for a run.
I am between a 8 and a 10 and I would say the 8 fits great for running but is a little bit thight to relax in the living room.
With the size 10 I need to tight the drawcord a little bit.
Be sure to try them in a store before buyong them online to be of the size you need.
