Run: Speed Short *4-way Stretch
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.

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!

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?

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
