I love these shorts! The 2 way stretch are my favorite. I am so happy about the new length and I have purchased 4 pairs now that they are a little bit longer in the back. I am waiting for some more fun colors with contrast piping to come out. When they do, I will buy!!

These are by far my favorite running shorts. I run about 60 miles a week training for marathons so I spend a lot of time in them and I must say I absolutely love them. As new colors come out I buy the ones I like. They are extremely flattering but still comfortable and functional. The length is short but not to the point that you're indecent. The pocket in the back can hold an energy gel or two as well as my key and some money comfortably without that annoying bounce that sometimes happens.

3 out of 4 are good
I purchase four pairs of these for the summer. One pair has plastic pieces coming out of the waist band. So far my other three pairs are fine but expect them to do the same.

Chafe the inner thighs :(
These are by far my least favorite lulu shorts. They are too short and chafe the insides of my thighs when I run. Very uncomfortable.

Love these shorts!!!
I had to have the wee are from space silver spoon/antidote/clear mint shorts and was lucky enough to get them on WMTM. They fit perfectly, are absolutely beautiful and feel excellent on. Can not think of one single complaint!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE These Shorts
Bought these shorts on a whim because I HAD to have the wee weezy check colour- so cute! I ordered a sz 6 online immediately as the colour was almost sold out. When they came they were tiny! To my sadness I had to return them- but went in person to see if I could find another size. It turns out that I got the exact same pair in store and they fit fine- true to size. Same Bar code, same short, but fit MUCH differently than the ones I ordered online. Not sure what happened here, but would definantly recommend these shorts for the colour, fit and zipper pocket in the back. I am 135lbs, 5'6" for reference.

I love these as a swim coverup at the beach as well as running or really doing anything active. I prefer the 2 way stretch because I don't like how the four way feels of polyester. I wear shorts when it's hot and who wants to wear polyester when its hot? I wish there were more color/pattern options for these. I only buy colors with contrast piping, contrast piping accentuates the adorable details of these shorts. Bring back the spray dye and groovy stripes!!

after I posted my own comment before I began reading some of the other comments and I found the majority of people claimed that they are too long in the back. Well, I disagree. I like the length the way it is because my mom doesn't like me wearing short shorts that fit semi-tightly. These shorts pass her approval as well as my own. Even though they aren't tight like jean shorts, they fit loose but not too loose at the same time as being more stylish, match with tops, comfortable, and dry and absorb liquid better than any other shorts I own. I am 5'1, weigh 90lb., have no curves other than my bust, and wear a size 2. I recommend these to everyone! No complaints necessary!

these are ideal
bought my first pair of these about a week ago and wore them in my first half marathon this past sunday - the most comfortable pair of shorts i have owned to date. i often would get annoyed with my shorts around mile 6 or 7 while i was training, but these were completely comfortable throughout the half and the back pocket was perfect for storing a gel for the race! i will definitely be picking up another pair.

glad I bought them before they sold out!
I loved the color of the spray dye white blue (now sold out), read the reviews of a slightly longer fit, and got my typical size 8 (I have thick thighs and do not like snug shorts). I have a pair from a couple years back and use them for hiking or running early summer mornings but not a typical longer run for modesty reasons and prefer the groovy run for that. I wore these on a warm 8+ mile run yesterday and really loved them, I did not even feel them. I know there are many who would like the shorter, snugger style to come back but I will admit I am not one of them :)
