Shake & Break Short *2-way Stretch
wanted to love these
I love the color and the length! Also super soft!
I am an avid crossfitter and runner. I have had a lot of trouble finding pants and/ or shorts that fit in the waist and don't slide down during burpees, etc.
I ordered a size 8 in these shorts. They are TOO BIG in the waist and too tight in the butt. I could deal with the tightness if they weren't so loose in the waist. I am curvy 5' 6', 160 lbs with muscular thighs and a butt (that's what cross fit gives you), for reference. Because of the tightness in the butt area I don't think a size 6 would work.
I don't live near a store so I had to order them and try them on.
They will be going back.

I excersise every day, so I basically live in athletic shorts. These were my first pair from lululemon, and I was beyond satisfied. These are my favorite shorts I've ever had because they are comfortable, cute, breatheable, and just feel like they fit right. I ordered a 4, but I maybe could have ordered a 2. For reference, I am 5'5" and 112 lbs. I'm thin, but have muscular legs, and these shorts are flattering yet comfy. Also the hidden pockets are an awesome addition because they have a zippered pocket for cash or keys. I love the liner too b/c it's not too tight. I am looking forward to purchasing more of these!

LOVE these shorts!
The fabric on these shorts is oh so soft and comfortable. And the waistband is amazing. No pinching at the waist and the shorts stay where you put them. They don't fall down and they don't ride up. Slight bit of bunching between the legs after 4 miles, but not uncomfortable, and no chaffing. A slight tug and they fall right back into place again.
As far as sizing goes- go with hip measure not waist measure. I have 37 inch hips, but 30 inch waist (give me a break, I'm 46), with super skinny legs. Size 8 swim on me, so a size 6 was great. They are still pretty baggy, but I think that's what they are supposed to be like. They look really cute on, but I didn't buy them as casual shorts, I bought them to run! And they worked great. 5.5 mile run to try them out without any disappointments.

Longer than Speed, shorter than Groovy
I teach classes and I feel the speed shorts are way too short to wear to class. I like the 2 way stretch Groovys, they are a bit longer. I don't care for the regular thin material on the Groovys, looks too droopy and outdated.
These are perfect! Short enough but not too short, looks good on muscular legs. Leg opening has plenty of room if your thighs are bigger. They do run a little big, I usually wear a 4 and have been buying a 2 in this style. PLEASE MAKE THESE IN RED and other colors!

great for crossfit and running!
I loved the Track Attack shorts from last summer - some didn't, but they were perfect for my big(ger) thighs. I picked up a pair of the Shake & Break shorts on sale. LOVE THEM. They are a great length and the leg openings are roomy. I can wear them while rowing and not feel immodest (unlike the Speed shorts). No chafing on a long run. Great pockets - especially the zipper pocket inside the side pocket. Only gripe is the waist runs a little big on me -- I usually wear a 10 in lulu shorts and maybe could have gotten away with an 8 in these.

Very good for running
I gave up on running shorts awhile ago, most are ugly and don't fit well. But these are extremely comfortable, airy, seem good quality, and relatively flattering even if you have larger legs. I like the length, they are not excessively short. Seems like they could get a bit hot in the summer because the material is a little thick, but for now that hasn't been a problem. Thick waistband is very comfortable.

So so comfy & lightweight to run in - I have just bought my second pair. Wasn't sure about the built in knicker at first but have to say I don't even notice once on. Would love brighter watermelon or green colours please lulu!!

I received these shorts in the mail in the parallel stripe. When I tried them on, the fit felt odd - one side of the shorts felt longer than the other. When I looked in the mirror they were so much longer on the right side that you could actually notice it. I then inspected the seam that ran down the middle of the shorts and it was way off to one side, therefore making one side longer than the other. I don't even know how these shorts made it past inspection. -- Obviously, they're going back.

Fantastic training shorts
I use these for weight-lifting and circuit-training and love them. They're the perfect length - not too short. The leg opening is big enough for my muscular thighs and to comfortably do squats etc.
I'm usually between a size 4 and 6 and the 4 definitely fit better in this style.
Only improvement would be to make them in a slightly stretchier fabric - they're definitely stiffer than the other LLL shorts I own.
