amazing shorts - cute and functional
I have to agree with the other reviews - these shorts are fantastic. They are very lightweight and move with my body in a way the two way stretch speed shorts don't.
I really like all of Lululemon's shorts for running and weights, but these are the only ones I forget I'm wearing. The waist band is soft and flat, the back is slightly longer than the front (so I don't have to worry about peep shows), I can squat, lunge, tye my shoes, etc. with no pull or bunching anywhere.
The only slight negative I would offer is that the build in underwear are too big for my bottom, so they ride up some, but I'm small in that department anyway (so it's a fit issue I constantly deal with - not necessarily something "wrong" with the shorts).

Fabulous run shorts
I borrowed these from a friend and fell in love. They are really flattering and comfortable. Went out and got my own in black with block it pocket in size 8 . I found the inner panty a bit big in the leg openings which allowed them to ride up a bit on me. Next time I will try a 6! I'm 5'11" 150 lbs. I'm right between sizes.
They wash well and are my "go to" shorts for running and in the gym. I would love to see more dark colours in the 4 way stretch.
Overall a terrific product. If you're going to get one pair of shorts, these would be the ones

Best running shorts
Absolutely love these shorts -- especially the 4 way stretch! The back pocket is perfect for keys/gels etc and the shorts do not restrict movement or chafe. Please keep these forever, Lulu!

speed shorts addict
Love, love these shorts. Best long-distance running shorts EVER MADE! I have 20+ pair! Great fit, pockets are perfect. Love the colors and patterns.
And, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Lululemon for FINALLY notating 2-way vs 4-way on the website!! I wear both, but it's so nice to know what to expect when ordering online!!
