Run: Speed Short *4-way Stretch
So mad that I sized down!!
On the advice of a fellow online lulu shopper, I ordered these shorts in Bali breeze in a size 2 instead of my usual 4. (I am 115lb and 5?4?) They got to my house and I excitedly tried them on only to discover that they were too small. The lines didn?t fall in the right places and they hugged my hips and thighs in areas a Lulu size 4 never does!
I was so disappointed that I wouldn?t be able to keep them. I had to return them that same afternoon via the post office. Then, I went online to order a size 4 but low and behold, they are sold out of Bali breeze in the size 4. Depression.
Moral of the story: 1) Order these shorts because they are absolutely awesome and 2) DO NOT CHANGE YOUR SIZE. But seriously, don?t change your size.
Please bring back some fun, bright colors! I hate the plaid and checkered designs that are out right now. :/ Not the most flattering!

I bought the bali breeze speed shorts yesterday and are my 4th pair of speed shorts. I haven't compared them directly beside my other speed shorts but just by trying them on I didn't feel that they were any bigger than my other speed shorts. This color is great for summer and will definitely compliment a tan.

love these shorts but sizing can be off. i always have to try on at least couple pairs of the same shorts (same color) in the same size to get the right fit. wear sz 6 for crossfit. could wear size 4 but then the lining is too obvious. stats are 5'4", muscular legs and 128lbs

These are usually the most flattering athletic shorts ever. I didn't like the recent colors and was excited for the Bali Breeze color. However, they run really big. I'm usually a 4 and I think even going down to a 2 will still be too big. They are baggy and make me look wider. These are going back :(

*Bali Breeze* Specific- Inconsistent Sizing
Beware! The bali breeze speeds are HUGE! I am a huge fan of the speed shorts in 2 and 4 way stretch. I have over 10 pair purchased over the course of 4 years. I love these shorts and am so sad to be seeing more and more sizing inconsistencies.
For reference, I am 5' 0", 120lbs, wear a size 4, and crossfit. The bali breeze shorts feel very big and boxy. The fabric in the back is much longer than my other speed shorts (I have included pictures to show this). The fabric also flares away from my hips instead of lying smooth and makes me look wider than I am! Who wants that in their shorts?!?
I do not live anywhere near a store so I rely on the website to have consistent sizing. The speed shorts are a Lululemon staple. I do not understand why it is so hard to have consistent sizing. I miss the days when I could order online from Lulu and trust that the quality and sizing of my purchase would be consistent.

New Speed Shorts are always sold out online WHY
Very discouraging on a Tuesday when the new speed shorts come out that they are all sold out of all sizes. Fpr example the new fatigue green camo ones. GONE and no one knows when the stores will have them if they will at all.
Seriously lulu you need to get them in the stores at the same time as they go online. I love these shorts and spend so much money for your merchandise. Please get more camo and how about some bright yellow like the ones last summer called Sizzle

So I have many pairs of speeds and they are my favorite shorts by far. However recently I have noticed the sizing is off. All my speeds are a size 6 and I don't like to wear them snug. They are loose. I purchased a pair of the paris pink and immediately I could tell they were larger than my other 4 way speeds but they were ok. I recently purchased the very light flare in a 6. Not thinking I removed the tags. These are even larger. When laid under my other speeds they are wider in the hips and longer in the leg. At 5'1 the length really makes a difference. Just a warning to check before you cut the tags off even in your regular size. Also Lulu please bring back the previous consistency!

Cadet Blue NOT 4 way stretch
I have been waiting for a cuter color than black in the 4 way speeds. Ordered the Cadet Blue and was so, so excited!
But guess what? They are 2 way stretch. And it says so right on the tag. Worse, they feel crunchier than the my other 2 way. So disappointed and upset with Lululemon. For the $ of things, I'd expect they can could advertise correctly.

Cadet Blue Speeds - What's up?
I love speeds. They are pretty much the only thing I wear running now - great (short) length, so soft, and the waistband gives no muffin top at all. So I was shocked at the poor material for the new cadet blue speeds. First, online they are advertised as 4-way stretch. The tag, however, says they are only 2-way. And the material doesn't even have the amount of softness or stretch as my other 2-way speeds. It's rough and heavy - almost like a lightweight twill. First pair of speeds I will ever return for quality issues.
