Run: Speed Short *2-way Stretch
I LOVE these shorts on my 5'2", 108lb self. I take a size 4. The fit is so cute and the fabric is so comfortable and so sweat wicking. I love all the patterns they come out with. I wish they came out with as many/the same patterns for these as they do the 4-way stretch ones... Hint, hint :-)

Wonderful workout shorts!
I ordered these in a size 6 and realized immediately that they were too big. I'm 5 foot 3 at 115 lbs. I would say my build is athletic. Lululemon was nice enough to send me a pair in a size 4 and they were a perfect fit. I didn't want them too tight. They offer an ease of movement with all my workouts (running 10K, pilates, yoga, boot-camp exercises) and are uber comfy. They offer the perfect length and they are super breathable. I love these shorts!

These shorts have absolutely changed how I run. The ventilation on them keeps me cool and dry, especially on the longer runs. Although some people may feel like they're too short (2.5" inseam), I feel like they are appropriate on someone of my size and age. These shorts are light as air and are absolutely not constricting in the slightest. However, I did have to buy them in a size up for them to be this way. For reference, I am 5'6", 120 lbs, and typically a size 4 in lululemon, but I went with a 6 for these. This was because although they do stretch fairly well, you can see where the fabric pulls if they are too tight. Even so, for a pair of running shorts this fantastic, I am willing to stow away my pride and size up. I have these shorts in 7 different colors (I know, I'm obsessed) and I receive compliments at every single race I wear them to. Overall, a must buy for any serious runner, especially for those covering long distances.

Sizes not consistent
Order the blue diamond 2 way stretch speed short. I have a few pairs of the 2 way stretch and wear a size 6. I ordered the size 6 when it came in I tried them on and they are super tight and way too small. They seem to be a least a size smaller than a 6. The back is pulling apart where the air flows through and the inner liner is so uncomfortably tight. I will be returning these. Not sure if the sizing is mislabeled or this blue material is not stretchable. I've read other reviews about the blue diamond material not fitting correctly. I should have listened to the reviews. If you order the blue diamond I would size up or better yet pick another pair. Customers shouldn't have to worry about inconsistent sizing with the same type of shorts.

I was so excited to get these pretty little blue beauties. Today I finally popped off the tags and went to crossfit. I hadn't even started the work out...just standing around talking with friends and stretching when my friend looked down and noticed it was falling apart at the seam!! I was embarrassed and shocked that this happened to me. Thankfully I had an extra pair of shorts in my gym bag or else I wouldn't have been able to do the workout. Not cool!

love the color and style
The colors on these shorts are super cute! I tried it on and the waist was loose. I have a size 6 and should wear the 4.
I feel like I'm wearing nothing. So light weight, comfortable and blue color and print is beautiful.

Just bought these after having the older, longer version (forget the name) for the past couple years. These are perfect... perhaps a smidgen too short, but super comfy and great for running. No chaffing, riding, etc.

Previously bought the 4-way stretch shorts in a size four and loved them then purchased a 2-way stretch shorts in the same size. Unfortunately I didn't try them on and the 2-way shorts are about an inch smaller in the waistband than the 4-way. As such they are a little too tight and the fit isn't as flattering -unfortunately I can't return because they were a sale item.
Try them on before you buy ladies!
For reference - I'm 160cm tall, 47kg and wear a size 2 top and 4 bottom.

Not what I had expected
I ordered this online as soon as it came out. When these shorts was first listed, it stated it was a "4 way stretch" however, when I received it in the mail, I looked at it and immediately could tell it wasn't a "4 way stretch". The material felt stiffer. I ordered two sizes - a size 4 and 6. I returned the size 4 to my local Lululemon store and the sales associate kept inspecting the shorts and for some reason (which I did not even notice), there was some black ink mark. She looked at me accusingly and talked with another associate before accepting my return. I had literally received the shorts the evening before when I returned it. Why would I intentionally make pen marks on something I am returning? I already felt mistreated by returning the shorts. But I am very disappointed as this product was initially labeled as a "4 way stretch". Lululemon STORE associates need to learn how not to be judgmental when returning products.

Now they are 2way
Last week these were listed under 4 way, I purchased them online, only to find out that they are 2 way when they arrived. Ther is a huge difference between 2 way and 4 way. It's very disappointing to order a product by you and find out that you labeled it incorrectly. And that it happens quite often.
