Great Shorts! Need more colors and CONSISTENT FIT
Okay...so I am a bit of a lulu addict and am first to order something or run to the store to snatch it up. I have 7 pair of speeds...but have had to sell/trade a few after buying and wearing them due to crazy inconsistent sizing. I had the 4-way citron canvas and they were SUPER short and tight, but the iggy pop purple and raspberry glo fit me perfectly. I am just under 5'9" and about 155lbs with an overall average build; I wear an 8 in Lulu shorts, and a 6 in everything else. I really want the new black quilted shorts but am scared to order due to other reviews stating quality issues in sizing consistency.
My local store ( Richmond, VA) NEVER has the new colors in stock in 4-way, and when they occasionally --rarely--do, it's never a size 8 and I go in at least once a week to check.

I was so excited to get these shorts after seeing how great they looked on other girls at my gym. However, when I looked at the shorts the vents were not sewed properly to lay up correctly. I figured it would work once I had them on. I wore them for a workout and two of the vents were exposed the whole time showing the liner. I want to love these shorts but now that the tag is out I will probably only wear them for home workouts. Very disappointed with the quality of these.

I can't say enough about these shorts... They are great! I'm around 125lbs and about 5'8". For everything I wear I'm usually a size 6 including the groovy run short but sized down to a 4 for these shorts (glad I did!) since the 6 felt and looked a little baggy and loose. I do find they have a similar fit to the groovy run short but still have good length. They are perfect for wearing everyday around the house, going to the gym and everything else in between. Still waiting to wear them outside as the weather is still a bit chilly where I live! Love these shorts and haven't had any problems :)

Another home run!
These shorts fit perfectly, just like everything else I have from Lulu. I am a runner and these shorts don't MOVE while running! I would say they fit TTS. For reference, I am 5'2 110 lbs and went with my usual size 4. However, these are notably shorter in length than the other shorts (which I prefer)- just a heads up!

I thought I should finally say something about this product! I used to love these shorts, in fact they were the only Lululemon style that were good for me! I have many........ However the last 3 pairs I bought recently turned out to be a terrible disappointment. The cut has been changed, it's long in the back and hangs ugly! I lay them with my old ones and sure enough it's cut longer in the back! I'm 5'2 and vary between 100 and 107lbs. Unless this is changed to what it used to be, I think I could safely say that I won't be buying anymore Lululemon shorts. I have had to take the last 3 pairs to my seamstress to have them taken up! I think Lululemon products are expensive enough don't you? However if Lululemon were to make them like before , I will buy them again! These are the only Lululemon bottoms I will buy(I wear them through the year!)

Something isn't right..
I purchased the new black/quilt spring 14 speed shorts and I'm super disappointed! Something isn't right about the fit. I love all my other speeds but in comparing them to my other speeds the inseam is about half an inch longer and the shorts come down more in the back than the previous styles. In conclusion.. my booty and legs looks weird in these and I used to love the way they made my booty and legs look! Use the old design please! These are going back.

Only shorts I will wear
These are the most comfortable shorts I own and the only shorts I wear for working out. At first I was hesitant to even purchase them because they look very short on my long legs, but after one wear I was sold! They are so easy to move in and don't ride up at all. I wear them for running, lifting, bootcamp, and tabata and they do their job perfectly. Please come out with more colors lulu! For reference, my waist is a 26 and I wear a size 4 in lulu crops and the size 4 fits me just right in these shorts.

Love, love, love!
I absolutely love these shorts for dance classes! They're so comfy and easy to move in. They don't get bunched up in the legs or anything like that. The only thing I have an issue with is the zipper on the back, sometimes it hurts when you go to the floor quickly or do a lot of crunches in class. I recommend going a size up for a looser fit and maybe wearing a pair of groove shorts underneath. They have the little attached underwear but i just like to be a little more covered.

Longer Inseam Please LLL
Once again LLL puts out the 4-way stretch with a 2 1/2" inseam in multiple colors. When is LLL going to do the same for runners who like a longer inseam (at least 4 1/2") with the 4-way stretch in different styles and colors???
