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
Best Shorts Ever I love love love these shorts!!! I had been thinking about buying them for a really long time, but I had tried them on once and didn't love them. However, I decided to try them on again and boy was I wrong! They are super comfortable and flattering and they make your legs look amazing. With summer coming around, I was definitely in need of a pair...and I will most definitely be buying more! May 9, 2015
The best!!! I absolutely love these shorts. Honestly, their one of the only things I have bought from Lululemon that I like. They are super flattering and comfortable and they don't really ride up because of the way they match the shape of your body, longer in the back and taper in under your butt and shorter in the front so they stop at the top of where your thigh curves out. I wear these for every workout (crossfit) and almost every girl at my box does too. You will really be happy with them if you're curvier. No muffin top and they really show off the muscles I have built in my thighs. I am 5'5'' and weigh about 155-160 but fairly muscular. I bought two size 8's and one size 10 (all off of ebay, sorry Lulu I've got a budget). I really like the 8's better but these are so flattering you could get your size wrong and they would still look good. May 6, 2015
Excellent! Love them! I ordered these online and had just assumed that they were made out of the same fabric as the studio pants, but when I got them, they were much much thinner and smoother than I had expected. I thought they would be too flimsy and just snag or rip, and hang funny, but it turns out, the fabric is AWESOME! And they look amazing too!! I'm not fat, but also not stick skinny, so if you're worried about how they will look on you, DON'T! They will look good on any body type! They are stretchy and really light. So they keep you really cool but are not see through. Super comfortable and perfect for running or just wearing on a casual summer day! May 5, 2015
Meh I felt like I needed an in-between size in this short. I like the fit of the legs on the 2 but the fit of the waist/butt is better on the 4. I ended up buying the 4, which is my usual Lulu bottoms size, but I don't like how baggy the legs are on me. I don't feel comfortable laying down to do sit-ups etc. in a class because they are so baggy. I have to cinch the waist for proper fit but the 2 seemed so tight that it was pulling across the front. They are very lightweight and comfortable, but they are certainly not my favorites. May 2, 2015
Great shorts-beware of fit issues! I ordered my first pair of speed shorts about a month ago and have purchased two additional pairs since. I'm so happy with the first two pairs! I ordered a size 6 based off the size charts and they fit like a dream. They hug in all the right places and are very comfortable and flattering. I rec'd my most recent pair in the mail yesterday and am totally bummed out to say the fit was off :( I'd been keeping my eye out for the black brushed animal white black speeds since seeing they'd dropped recently in Canada. I was SO excited to get them and ordered them the minute I saw they'd been uploaded in the US. When I got them and tried them on I was so disappointed in the fit. My other speeds hug my thighs and fit with the curve of my legs. These ones flare out on the sides making it look like my thighs have wings. I'm hoping this is just a defective pair and I plan on ordering another pair in my size 6 with the hopes that the fit is more consistent. Overall these are the most flattering shorts I've EVER worn! I'll keep buying them-hopefully wiithout any more fit issues. May 1, 2015
The most functional shorts LOVE these! I don't have to worry about them riding up and the liner stays in place. The camo pair have to be my new favorite. May 1, 2015
LOVE the shorts I absolutely love the cut and design of these shorts! Very flattering and super comfy for my athletic thighs! I have 35.5-36' hip width and size 4 is perfect to me. The only thing that i don't like is, i got the clear mint and heather grey, the fabric is kinda see through so with the lining..it's like panties lines. Lulu this is my first pair of speed shorts please pay attention to the fabric..or make these shorts without linings. April 30, 2015
