Best Lulu Shorts!
I bought this short today, and I am 5'2 and a pretty consistently a 12 in everything in Lulu. Im pretty apple shaped, but these shorts are incredibly flattering and make my legs look lean and my butt look tight! They are also a great length on me, so if you are taller they will be shorter.

Finally shorts that I love from Lulu!
I own many Lululemon items and have always wanted a pair of shorts but never found the right fit after trying different styles on different occasions. Then one day I gave it another go, and wow! I fell in love. I inquired about the colors for these shorts and the educator told me that these shorts have only been out for a week. So since they've launched I've been checking the site every day for new colors. Did I mention that I'm only 5"0? I'm short but these are perfect for me because I have a bigger butt and the Speed shorts are too short (think wedgie bootie shorts) and tight on me. I wear these for cross-fit and running. I prefer the 4 way stretch because the material feels softer. Please make some turquoise colors/striped/ or plaid ones in the four way stretch! Lululemon thanks for making these!

I only ordered these shorts cause it says they are 4 way stretch and they are not!! They are 2 way stretch! I ordered the Wee Wheezy check bleached coral cadet blue/black ones im really disappointed!

Great Hot Weather Running Short
I am a fan of the Groovy Run Short and was not happy when I found out it was being discontinued. I am a fan of a longer inseam running short that covers the inner thigh area I don't want exposed and yes, even a 1/2" makes a difference.
However, I recently tried on and bought the Run Times 4-way stretch short (has to be 4-way), pretty palm cadet blue, size 6 and actually liked the style and fit. I wear a size 6 in LLL shorts and the only difference I found was the waist seemed slightly bigger so I tightened the cinch band and they were fine.
Recently having a week of really hot weather (high 20's) I didn't mind wearing a shorter inseam running short so these will now become my hot weather running shorts. However, I live in Edmonton and we don't get that many really hot days so please LLL bring back the Groovy or another version of a running short with a 4 1/2" or 5" inseam.
P.S. I am now a huge fan of cadet blue and hope you will make it a staple color.

Bad fitting shorts
I dislike these shorts very much I bought them for kickboxing and gym activities. They are constantly riding up and give me a major camel toe not very comfy when you are trying to work out. The material is always wrinkled even when I was it accordingly. They hit at the most awkward part of my hips and like to move around while I do. The lady in the lululemon shop sized me up and said the 6 was the right size. These shorts are not comfy at all and unfortanlyall they do now is sit in my drawers

Like the 2 way stretch better
I ordered these shorts online after buying the 2-way stretch run times in store. I like my 2-way stretch much better--the fabric feels firmer and not as flimsy. Also, I ordered these in in the pink flowabunga and I found the shorts to be sheer (not see through, but still). I'm returning these and will get another pair of the 2 ways instead.

New Favorite Shorts
I was looking for the flowabunga pattern in the Run Speeds as they were my favorite Lulu shorts and I love the print. Tried these because they came in that pattern. Did not expect to have a new favorite. Fits more comfortably than run speeds, slimmer leg and a little longer. Love them. Hope they will be a regular. Or not would save me $$$. For reference I am 5'2 110 pounds and my usual size four is perfect.

Bring Back the Groovy Run!
As many others have mentioned, I'm a huge lulu fan and went into panic mode when the groovy runs disappeared from my local store's shelves. The educator said these were the replacement for the groovy run and I was devastated. The run times do not fit anywhere near the same. As a tall, muscular girl (165 and 5'11") the extra 1/2" inseam and 3/4" leg opening makes a world of difference. These shorts are a bit too short and tight to make a run or crossfit workout bearable. For reference, a 6 in the groovy's and these were too tight in leg on the 6 but too loose in the waist for the 8. Lulu, I'm begging you. Please bring back the groovy run!

Great shorts but didn't hold up
I was extremely excited to purchase these shorts because they are super comfortable, cute, and great for running. But after having them only for a couple of weeks, I noticed that several threads on the butt of the shorts were coming out. It's extremely disappointing because I very much valued the quality of products from Lululemon, but these shorts do not seem to live up to their previous standards. I would love to purchase more products from Lululemon but I don't know that I will.
