Cute and Comfy but not consistent When i first got these shorts I absolutely loved them. They we're comfy and adorable. I wanted to wear them everywhere. At first I got a size too small but then I exchanged them for the next size up and they fitted perfectly. However, after about 5 wears I noticed the waist band was starting to stretch out. The waist would fit when I stood up but when I sat down the shorts wouldn't snugly fit my waist they would gap open August 25, 2014
uncomfortable & way too short i bought these thinking they were a really cool pattern & they would be comfy like all the other lulu things i have. wrong. super uncomfortable (even though i sized up two sizes to a 6, just to be safe) and entirely too short. i took the tags off when i got home (before trying them on) so i can't return them but i absolutely do not like these shorts. it's a shame because i loved the designs i got but i'm going to get no use out of them because they aren't appropriate :( August 24, 2014
very disappointed I got these shorts in the inky floral ghost inkwell bumble berry/inkwell color. I loved the pattern, but the new, longer length in the back was just awful and not nearly as flattering as the original fit of the speed shorts. These are going back asap. Thankfully, I have a lulu showroom a few minutes from where I live which makes it much easier to return. I used to love Lulu clothes. However, I'm not happy with all of the changes they have made to the fit of some of their most popular items (groove pants, scuba hoodie, and now their speed shorts). From a business perspective, I don't understand why lulu would change something that wasn't broken and hence alienate a lot of customers. The speed shorts were my absolute favorite lulu item for crossfit, running, and even wearing out grocery shopping etc. So sadly, with this change in speed shorts fit, I've reached my breaking point as a lulu customer and will not be purchasing from them again. From the severe decline in quality of fabric to changes in fit, lulu has gone way downhill - especially for the price. August 24, 2014
Excellent but with a little flaw This shorts is unbelievable! Light, airy, super comfortable overall. It comes with cute colors as well! I am planning to wear this mainly for running and Bodypump. But, mine came with a little flaw... one of the vent at the side was not sewn properly and it sticks out all the time. It irritates me and makes me feel very self concious all the time! (otherwise this product would get 5 stars from me!) August 20, 2014
why change I've got these shorts first time couple years ago. I always liked the way they look on other people.I've got size 8(on advice of my sister). they were too big, but i kept them.i also have old size6 - perfect, but i wanted 4-way stretch.Few days ago I've got new pair. they are going back!what a weird fit. they are much longer in the back and flares out in the thighs.Why would you change the style that was so popular? could you just add new styles without fixing what "ain't broken"? could you please bring old style back?

I miss the old patterns! Although the new designs are absolutely beautiful, I am in love with the first patterns. I think lululeon should bring them back because they were so cute, and they have always been my favorites! Also please come out with more designs for the 2-way stretch speed shorts!! Those have a much better fit! August 16, 2014
love the shorts These are one of my favorite pairs of shorts that Lulu makes! I'm petite (5'1); and they're not too short or too long on me - they hit me above mid-thigh so I love them! The only complaint I have is that I've noticed I need to go up a size to make sure they don't crease between my groin and thigh area when I'm working out at the gym, or going for a run (which is my reason for the 4 stars)! Otherwise, I'm completely happy with these, they're lightweight, they keep me cool, and they look great both on and off the hanger! I definitely recommend them! August 14, 2014
Favorite shorts! I just ordered my second pair of these shorts after getting hooked onto Lululemon by a friend. These shorts are so light, flexible, and breathable; by far my favorite pair they make! They are short enough in the front to show off some leg, and they cover plenty in the back- nothing unwanted shows. They're amazing and are worth every dollar! The waist also doesn't create 'love-handles'---so I love them! August 14, 2014
Great shorts! So this was my very first pair of shorts I purchased from Lululemon, and I loved them so much I went back and bought 2 more pairs! They do run a little short, so if you have long legs like I do, be prepared! August 14, 2014
Bad Sizing!! I want to love these shorts soooo bad!!! The problem is there is such a huge size difference between the sizes! I'm in between the 6 and 8 and it's very frustrating! Size 6 is so tight you can see the liner through the shorts and the size 8 is so loose I'm constantly hiking them up! When you hold the two sizes up together you can see there is clearly a few inches difference around the waist! How are you supposed to find a good fit with that kind of difference!? Super frustrating :( I would probably buy a pair in every single colour if these shorts fit better. I bet I'm not the only one that is in between sizes ... I'm surprised to see there aren't more ladies out there writing about it. August 14, 2014
