strong and light, Swift fabric is woven to stand up to whatever we throw at it - we love this technical fabric for its no-bulk, no-nonsense performance
why we made this
We're proud of our athletic quads – we worked hard for them! We made these shorts out of stretchy, sweat-wicking fabric with plenty of room for our muscles. With details like a secure leg pocket and lightweight liner, they help us reach our runner's high time and time again.
fabric + features

secure, zippered leg pocket to stash your essentials
wide elastic waistband won't dig in and has a continuous drawcord that's easy to cinch mid-stride
built-in liner keeps you covered and helps your shorts stay put
shaped hem and athletic cut has plenty of room for muscular legs to move freely
I just bought these shorts 3 days agao. I decided to wear them running yesterday and I am SOO dissapointed. I have the plastic fibers sticking out of them. I've only worn them once and I already can't use them anymore because my waist started bleeding from the plastic sticking out of the waistband. Very very disappointed.

These shorts are awesome! I have very curvy muscular thighs and they fit me perfectly, no riding or bunching. I have had 2 pairs since May and they've been washed probably 20 times since then, I have not had any issues with the plastic/sharp poking in the waistband that several reviewers have. The only reason they don't get a 5-star rating from me is because it's practically impossible to buy a Size 12 - sometimes available in Black (which I snap up), but I've almost never seen them in another colour and I look almost daily. Come on lulu - you are making shorts for muscular thighs but not offering much selection in your biggest size!

I really like how these shorts fit. However, the liner fits a bit too snugly in my opinion. Not a deal breaker though. I would say these shorts fit TTS. 5'10", 130# and went with my usual size 4 for shorts and pants.

Perfect Shorts For Everything
I just ordered my third pair of these shorts today. I have had no issues with fibers poking out of the waistband and I have had my two other pairs since April. I wear each of them at least once a week and have not had that problem yet. Hoping it doesn't start happening!
My favorite part about these shorts are the higher waistband. I feel comfortable wearing a tight shirt with these and they're very flattering. I wear them for my bootcamp classes and to run in. I recently ran a 5 mile race in them and had no issues.
I would definitely recommend these shorts!

I wore these on the hottest muggy Montreal summer days, hit the trails, and these shorts stayed in place and kept me airy and dry. I have now worn them and washed them a dozen times and nothing is poking at me. Either I was lucky with my pair or maybe my washer has a gentler touch. No complaints love the length and how roomy they are for muscular quads. Thanks Lulu!

Come on Lulu! Almost every person reviewing these are saying the same thing. There are pokey things in the waist band that HURT! Fix it! I have to inspect my pair every time before I go out to run to make sure there isn't a new fiber sticking out. And often end up having to tuck in a corner of my shirt to stop the poking.
I was recently in a Lulu store and saw a girl with a pile of these shorts to try on. I told her my issue with them, and she promptly put them down and said "no way"! Without a doubt everything else about these shorts are super comfortable - great length, good leg openings for "strong" thighs," don't move around - BUT how can someone run in shorts that cause them to bleed? Please, please, please fix it and don't just say "oh goodness, we'll take a look at the issue." With that problem solved, these would be my go to shorts and I'd order multiple pairs. But until then...

Stitching is fraying
I just bought these shorts for running, they are quite comfortable but they are fraying at the back .. Extremely frustrated. I'am finding the quality of some products from Lululemon are not what they use too be and to the point where I no longer want to spend the money on these products anymore

I loved these shorts until I got done running and I had a quarter size sore on my hip from plastic fibers sticking out of the waist band. I have 3 pairs of these shorts and I have the plastic fibers sticking out of 2 of them. I've only worn them twice and I already can't use them anymore because they rub my hip raw. Very very disappointed. It's definitely been past my two week take back period so now I'm stuck with expensive running shorts that I can't even use.

love the fit of shorts...but
I ordered the green dye pair first despite reading the reviews about the plastic poking. They were fine until the first washing. In the meantime I ordered the polkadot pair and love the fit and color but again with poking and scratching at the waist band. Love these shorts but please address the waist band problem. Should be better quality for $$.

Favorite Short for Short Athletic Build
I am 5'1" and am very self conscious about my thighs and usually despise all shorts with my large thighs. I recently trained for a marathon only wearing running capris. Due to the Texas heat and training in the summer I needed to bite the bullet yesterday and try on all of the Lululemon running shorts. Normally a 4" inseam would seem really long but it is perfect. The wide waistband stays put and covers you in just the right place. The length is perfect. I love the way they feel and look on me!
