Rated 5 out of 5 by gardengirl best running shorts ever
I tried several different brands of compression shorts for running--Helly Hanson, Champion, Skirt Sports, Nike and Title Nine. Every pair rolled up at the legs and most were uncomfortable in the waist. "What the short" shorts stayed down on my thighs even before I started to work up a sweat. And they didn't dig into my waist either. I love the fun fabric patterns. The pockets on the legs are great for ID, cell phone or emergency money. I suspect they'd also work for energy gel packs or a power bar. I don't use the waist band pocket at all, but it's nice to know it's there.
I am 5'7" and weigh 135 lbs, and ordered a size 8. Might have been able to order a size 6 but the 8 feels great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nl534 Great shorts, fantastic for a marathon!
Just wore these shorts for a marathon and they performed spectacularly. No chafing at all, they did not ride up, and the side pockets held all of my GUs with zero bounce whatsoever. The fuel in my pockets was convenient to access and I was thrilled not to have to wear an annoying belt. These are my new racing shorts going forward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kellidotca Great shorts, iPhone 6+ friendly!
I really like these shorts for running. I was a bit nervous about using the pockets with my iPhone 6+ (which is in an otterbox case) but it worked perfectly!
Runners know dragging a phone that big around can be a pain, but this was great! there is some phone that sticks out of the pocket, but it didn't move and there wasn't any bounce.
I think that means there'll be more than one pair of these shorts in my future.
Oh, they do slide up a bit, but my butt cheeks don't fall out so it's acceptable. =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anny63 BEST SHORTS EVER
There shorts are perfect. They're not too long but not too short either. They're soooo comfy, by far my favourite pair of shorts that I own. I have a pair of the boogie short but I recommend these 1000 times more. So in love, I want to buy another pair. Sizing is dead on, just order whatever size you normally are at Lulu. If you dont buy these shorts there is something wrong with you:) they rock

Rated 5 out of 5 by EricaM Best shorts ever!
I absolutely love these shorts! I do a lot of weight lifting, plyometrics, spin, and other workouts. I am all about spandex shorts so these are perfect for me! They fit better and are much more comfortable than my nike pro's. I wear both a size 6 and size 8 in them. The size 6 is great everywhere except on my thighs and then the size 8 is perfect on the thighs but a little to loose in the front. Even with those issues I still absolutely love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kellysuetutu These FEEL amazing!
these shorts feel SO soft. I have strong (read: thicker) legs, so the shorts dimple in a bit in the back - the plus side to that is that they STAY PUT! I don't have to hike them down all the time, like I do with other shorts, when doing burpees or other high cardio/movement exercises. They keep me cooler than if I was wearing crops or 7/8 styles, without always feeling like I have to adjust where they are on my leg
LOVE the waistband. Please make more like this! I also love the luxtreme fabric for keeping pet hair off my shorts

Rated 5 out of 5 by fitness47 Shorts that stay put!
I have purchased several pairs of Lululemon shorts over the years, but they always seemed to 'ride up' during cardio classes, and I would constantly be pulling them down (at the legs) to avoid 'over exposure' or a 'wedgie'. I bought these last week, and tried them out during an intense one hour Body Attack class; they were fabulous! The bottom of the shorts grip the legs without making them look like sausages, and the overall fit of the shorts is perfect - a great length without being too short or too long (I am 5'2").

Rated 4 out of 5 by runrzhi one pair wasn't enough
I get excited about putting in my miles when I am wearing these shorts. The side pockets are deep and secure: I had a mid-run panic the first time out because they worked so well I was oblivious to carrying my car key. Added bonus - the bright colors make you more visible in traffic.
They did ride up my legs a little, but I only noticed when I was stopped. I normally wear a 4 in everything LL but debated between the 4 and 6 when I purchased these. I went with the 4 - didn't want to chance sliding down- but the tighter fit might be why I have experienced the minor ride-up around my legs.
I still liked them enough to get a second pair!

I have the navy color in a size 6. I am a 6 in shorts and a 4 in pants. I am 5'3" and 120 lbs. I went with the 6 because the thigh band was tighter on my legs, but I do have a bit of room in the waist band area so I tight the adjustable strap and the fit just fine!!
I use these shorts for running, work outs, and hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuluGuru7 They Stay in Place!
A lot of people are bashing this short and I can't figure out why but these are my new fave shorts because one: ZERO MUFFIN TOP, unlike the comparable Nike Pro shorts. AndTwo: they STAY IN PLACE! Finally, a tight short that I do not constantly have to pull down! Plus the pockets on the side hold my phone, keys, etc. tightly which is an added bonus! I will be purchasing more to my collection so keep adding colors, please!
