Not Marathon Ready I really liked these shorts-the tighter fit kept them from riding up the middle and all the pockets came in handy. I wanted them to last as long as possible, so I made sure I only wore them for races. I did two half marathons wearing them, and one endurance run, which was 6 hours. If only I hadn't worn them for the marathon this past Sunday, I would still have them in mint condition. But I needed to be comfortable and use the pockets to keep my energy gels with easy access, so of course I wore these. By the end of the 26.2 miles, the seam of the inner right thigh had tore open. Thank goodness for the heat sheets they hand out after the race, because I needed one to cover my lap on the way home. July 28, 2015
Amazing shorts! I tried these on not expecting much seeing as I have always found lulu shorts to be too long, too short, or riding up too much but these are the opposite! The material is flattering, the length is perfect and the waistband is comfortable. They also stay put and dont slip around on my legs. I am 5'1 and 110 and normally wear a 4 or 6 in lulu pants and found the 6 to be perfect. overall an amazing pair of shorts and I'm definitely getting another pair! thanks lulu! July 27, 2015
Muffin Legs I love everything about these shorts but the only thing I don't like....it's when I wear them! I'm 5'9 , 130 pounds usually wear size 6 in all LLM so I have a slim athletic built. I don't have big thighs but feel that I do with these on. I only wear them at home as they do ride up when I go for my jogs and it makes me feel conscious of my physique. When I tried them on I asked the sales clerk if I should wear a bigger size and she told me they wouldn?t rise up my leg and a bigger size wouldn?t fit around the waist. I still feel that I should have tried the 8!!!! Makes for a pricey pair of shorts to wear at home. So, if you don?t have perfect 20 year old legs, go for a bigger size. July 24, 2015
Just what I was looking for I bought these shorts in the jeweled magenta dashing purple, and I absolutely love them! I didn't even consider trying them on in store because I was turned off by the elastic waist, but it is thick enough and supportive enough that it doesn't dig in and create a roll like some other elastic waisted shorts I own. I am so glad the educator suggested these. And I absolutely love the exterior pocket - lulu should make more wide exterior pockets on their tight shorts and crops. My iPhone 6 plus fits great and doesn't move, which is awesome! I also love the length - not too long and not super short. My only complaint is that I bought another pair and the seams came unravelled and pilled. I returned them with no problem but was so disappointed that they didn't have the exact same size in that particular color because I loved those even more! July 23, 2015
Just great! I'm an elite paddler and first bought these shorts in black to replace a similar model I got 2 years ago (Fast Track or Track Attack I think??). Since then, I ended up buying the heathered blue tropics ones, another pair of black and the newly released heathered net pop black multi. They're perfect!!! The material dries quickly and they are very comfortable even though the black ones are a little tighter around my muscular thighs (I still wear a size 4 like my Inspire crops as I prefer the length compared to the size 6). The fit and material do seem to change with every new color so I passed on some pretty ones because they were just too tight on the legs. New goto shorts for me :) July 20, 2015
LOVE these shorts! Received these in the mail last week and I immediately fell in love. The length, the waist band and the side pockets that fit my IPhone 6, everything is perfect. I've used them twice now and they didn't ride up or annoy me during my workouts. For a reference, because I love when people do this, I am 5'1" 113lbs and I purchased a size 6. I have muscular thighs and the size 6 accommodate them very nicely. I would probably fit into a 4 but since I was buying online I didn't want to risk having sausaged in thighs. July 20, 2015
Great Shorts! I love these shorts. They fit TTS and are very flattering! My only minor issue is that on a very hot day they rode up a little on the thigh but a quick tug kept them back in place. July 20, 2015
Best shorts made... Need solid fun colors These shorts have a flattering waste band, they don't fall down or ride up when running or doing crossfit. These are some of the best shorts made!! We need more fun solid colors like Bali breeze!!! July 16, 2015
Surprisingly awesome I got excited about these shorts when I first saw them because of the pockets, but restrained from buying because the waist looked like it might pinch my flab and Agent Athletica's fit review suggested they would be too tight on my not-skinny thighs. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on in the store though! I am 5'1, 110-115 lbs, wear a size 2 in American Eagle jeans and I got my regular size 4 and I think they fit great! Not too tight around the legs (and my thighs aren't skinny) or in the waist - the waistband is actually surprisingly comfortable! I also like the length because they don't ride up too much when working out. I got the plain black and they aren't sheer and they don't give me CT. Also, I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 with a Lifeproof case on it and it fits fine in the pockets and stays in while lifting, haven't tried running with it in the pockets yet... July 15, 2015
Great shorts The thing that I love about these shorts is that they are long enough so that I don't feel self-conscious in them. They also don't ride up, which is a definite plus. I wear them for all activities, including yoga, and they are very comfortable and stylish. I don't really use the pockets, but I like the way they look. I am 5'7, 137 lbs and wear my usual size 6 in these shorts. I own five pairs and love them all. The striped (purple striped and grey striped (older print)) are both a different material than the other pairs--not as soft, but they still feel and look great! July 15, 2015
