Run: Speed Short *2-way Stretch
AWESOME in Rad Plaids - Light Flare & Ambient Grey
Got these in both Rad Plaids offered in Spring 2014. Love both. Fabric is great - not see through at all, like the solid color antidote is this year.
Can't wait to wear the Ambient Grey Speeds with my Free to Be Wild in Antidote/Tonka Stripe + my black Here To There Tank!

Does anyone else wear a different size in the 4 way vs 2 way stretch? I feel like a size 4 is too tight in the 2 way stretch but a size 4 in the 4 way stretch seems to fit fine.

Ask for advice with sizing!
I was so excited to get my first pair of lululemon bottoms and was even more excited when I found the speed shorts in such a beautiful pattern. However after I ran in them a couple times I realized that I had bought the wrong size. I'm usually a 4 in most pants and shorts at other stores, and the 4's seemed to fit in store, but I realize now that I should have bought size 6. They ride up a lot and are too tight around my hips and butt. Make sure to ask for in-store sizing advice when buying these! What's worse is I bought them final sale so I can't try to exchange them for a different size. :(

Stitching on reflective plaid - NO Good
The reflective stitching on the shorts is made from a very rough material and left scratch marks all over my legs - I had to roll the cuffs to finish my WOD. I normally love the shorts - the design and fit are amazing.

Best Running Shorts!
I love these shorts and was soooo happy i got them in the green CAMO!!! They are so light and also very comfortable. Living in Texas is not easy in the summer so light and thin shorts are perfect for the Texas heat. Recommend to and runner. Also great to wear out to the beach or just outside in general.

I had been waiting for a new color to come out. I have been buying these shorts for the last year or so, so I have a few:) Bought the Zing Pink online and when I put them on today (yes!! we actually had some heat here in Kansas) was sooooo UPSET that they have a BLACK PANTY AND YOU CAN SEE IT!!!!!!?.. Almost tempted to cut it out but don't want to ruin them?so sad NOT one of my favorite pair

I'm a believer!
I haven't ordered any shorts from Lulu for a while, as i was 'Turbo Short' girl and they haven't made them in a while.
I was a little scared the Speed's might be too short, but bought the Chevron Dot as my first pair.
"Wow" is all I can say- they're amazing.
They're short, but longer at the back, so as to not be indecent.
Light as air, absolutely zero chafing and just a super great fit overall.
Even if the Lulu ever brings the 'Turbo's' back, it won't matter- I'm a speed freak now!
For reference, I'm almost 5'9- 125 lbs long legged and took my usual size 4. perfection :)

I am a HUGE fan of Speeds; over the past year alone I have acquired over a dozen pair. Bought my usual size 6 in the super-cute raspberry gingham last fall. When it finally got warm enough to wear them running, however, there was some MAJOR chafing along the left inseam of the shorts-- I suspect it is a stitching flaw in that particular area b/c they fit fine and there was no problem anywhere else. However, since it is well past the return date I am stuck with them. I just hope I don't run into the same problem with the purple ones I ordered. (That being said, the review really applies mostly to lulu's super-restrictive return policy).

I just ordered the cadet speeds in my normal size and the fit is perfect but they are SOOO long. I have lavender dusk, chevron dot and they are perfect....these look more like turbos! I returned and really hope they stop making them so long! Saw from several people the light flare had a terrible fit as well.
