Run Times Short *4-way Stretch
Love the 4 way Stretch Breezy Fabric
I really like these shorts. Especially the 4 way stretch breezy fabric. These fit a bit tight through the bum and thigh. I went up a one size to 8. I find that in the size 8 they fit like the Groovy shorts (in size 6) or the Turbo shorts (6) (I believe they were called). I love these shorts for trail running, hiking, travel, any other outdoor activities or hanging out.
However, working in a recreation facility, I do not feel professional wearing such short shorts on shift. For reference I'm 5'8" and 145lbs.
I would really love it if Lulu came out with some longer style shorts using this 4 way stretch fabric. There are so many men?s style of shorts in this type of fabric in all sorts of lengths. The only longer shorts I ever recall Lulu making were the Still Shorts which I still have a few pairs of from past years.

Not 2 way
I purchased these on line, after making sure to read the description to make sure that these were in fact 4 way material. I got them in the mail today, and before I even look at the tag, I can tell that they are 2 way!!! I'm keeping these shorts, But Lululemon need to come up with a better return policy, especially when it's your mistake by writing the incorrect description.

Gin Gin Gingham Mauvelous/Black are 2-way stretch
I bought the Gin Gin Gingham Mauvelous/Black in my local store. The hang tag says they are 2-way stretch and the material definitely feels like 2-way stretch. I typically don't like shorts in the 2-way stretch material although I might have made an exception for these. But they just didn't work for my body type. Although in general, I could see these working great for other people.

groovey runs still in pursuit
I picked these up to replace the now discont'd groovey runs but these are going back. Not for me. The inseam is a decent length but the fit around is not what I am looking for unless I size up but then the waist will be too big they will fall.
I have athletic legs but until now I never considered them disproportionate to the rest of my body....

please make more, please
I tried them on at my local store but I slept on it (why? why? what was I thinking?!)
Now my size & my favourite colour is gone, out of stock...
I am so bummed.I play racket sports and with this shots I can lunge carefree, as much as I need to. I have this in black. Everybody has and chose and buy these in black. Please make more RED!! more vibrant colour, please!

I love these shorts - the material is top notch and they don't ride up when running. I am 5'9 and slim, and these are the perfect length on me. My only complaint is that they don't come in more colors! I'll definitely be watching for the next several months because hopefully lulu will come out with more colors / designs - and if so I'll be snatching them up!

I usually wear the tracker shorts, but these are great! love the feel and that they don't ride up. I purchased my usual size 4.. I'm 115 (34-26-35).

Great alternative to the speed short
I am a speed short lover. I have over 20 pairs! Back in the day (2010?) I tried the groovy run short in my speed short size and they were a disaster. So tight in the crotch. I pretty much decided I cannot wear any of the longer style Lululemon shorts because of the odd fit.
Well Lululemon listened to us and came out with the run times shorts! They're pretty much a longer version of the speed short with the same great sewing/venting that outlines the booty. That design is perfect for running because it allows for movement without riding up or shifting.
I wear the same size in my speed short and run times shorts. I hope Lululemon makes more colors! I like to wear these casually in the neighborhood when I want a little more coverage than the speed short.

Great shorts for cycling!
I commute often by bike, anywhere from 4-8 miles at a time. I have gotten into the habit of taking my speed shorts along for the ride, and changing when I get to my destination. They are stretchy, have a comfortable waist, I have a pair in size 6 which is perfect. I like my clothes to be as comfortable as possible. I am 5'0'' and around 120-125 lbs with an athletic frame. Lulu 4's fit as well, but I think I prefer the give in the size 6, especially when biking, the waistband fit is the most important for me. The length is perfect! I like short shorts, and these are not too short for me to be in public.
I hand wash mine to be on the safe side...
