Most comfortable shorts!
Finally! I found the perfect shorts. These are so comfortable and cute. I got the opal/aquamarine color, and it is cuter in person than in the picture. I like the Speed Shorts, but they are a little too short in the front for me. I am very short but have large quads, and i felt a little self conscious in the speed shorts. These are just slightly longer and perfect. I wore them to crossfit and they kept me cool but fully covered during burpees, squats, deadlifts, pushups and pullups. Will def be buying more in different colors!

These shorts are very flattering--particularly the patterned ones with contrasting seams. However, compared to my old Groovy Run shorts, the liner rides up a little and they're a little shorter than I prefer. Also, I think the rise is a bit lower than the Groovy Run, or something about the fit makes it feel like a lower rise, and I really dislike a low rise. They are tolerable, and I'll keep them because I really need some new shorts--but not fantastic.

I bought these shorts in the new Granite, love the pattern on shorts! Not too sure if I would like it on top. They are fitted around the thighs and do make your but look great! took them for a test run, literally and very comfortable after 4 miles! Just one thing lulu, I think they are in the wrong category, the tag said 2 way stretch when i received them and you have them listed under 4 way stretch Run Times on the website.

Love these shorts
I'm usually a speed short wearer, always in 4 way stretch. I tried these recently to get some more coverage and really love them. They fit the same, just a bit longer.
Only issue or confusion I found was it says the granite is 4 way stretch but I saw these in the store and they were 2 way stretch. Are there two different versions? I ended up buying the speed shorts in the granite b/c they are true 4 way stretch. Weird.

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.
