What The Sport Short
New Favorite Shorts!
I wanted to wait until after I ran intervals in these shorts, my true test as to whether shorts will ride up or not. They worked amazing for intervals, no riding up at all! I also decided to have my phone in one of the side pockets as well. I was very nervous about this as I usually keep my phone in a running belt, zipped up with no chance of falling out. The phone did not budge in these pockets, even at my fastest pace! I am excited to run my long distances in these as well because of all the pockets! I usually try and cram all my fuel for runs into my running belt or water bottle zip pocket, but now I have even more options! Not to mention these are the most comfortable running shorts I now I own. I don't ever want to take them off, even after a long hot, sweaty run, they are still comfortable! I am sure more of these are in my very near future.

Love the fit, very disappointed in the quality :(
I bought these shorts this spring time in my usual size 8 and they fit great. I've wore them for one run and I washed them once and hung them to dry. When I was running I loved how they didn't ride up on the thighs, this was a huge plus! Just the other day as I was about to put them on I noticed the seam unravelling right at the rear crotch area :( Not sure what to do with them now, I don't want to wear them and risk the threads unravelling even more. Pretty disappointed in the quality of this particular pair of shorts, especially for the price I paid for them!

Great running shorts
I sized up based on a few other reviews about tightness in the legs (my quads are a little bigger from running/weight training). The 6 in these shorts was perfect for me despite usually getting a 4 in crops. They rode up a little tiny bit while I did some hard speed work, but only a little at the start - once they got a bit sweaty they actually stayed put! They are extremely comfortable and the length is perfect: I don't feel like my upper thighs or butt are exposed but they're also not 90s-style, too-long shorts either. There's no muffin top, the waist band is very forgiving. And the true test? I sweat like a beast when I run and despite being very damp/downright wet at the end of my workout, the white/multi-colour pattern did not show any sweat marks! The fabric looks the same wet and dry and was not see-thru. Great purchase - glad I got these.

I bought these shorts because of the side pockets. These are the best shorts I've bought so far. The length is perfect so I don't have to worry about my booty showing at the bottom. And I love the pockets on the side. I'm obsessed with Lulu bottoms with side pockets so I can put my phone somewhere while working out without having to wear arm bands. I don't find the leg openings too tight at all, but I have larger hips and skinnier legs. I'm 5'7 and 135lbs. I always buy size 6 bottoms and these fit me true to size.

Great workout shorts
I recently started a new workout that is a lot of squats and lunges and my running shorts weren't ideal. But these shorts are perfect! I think the best part is the pocket on either side to hold my phone- and it doesn't fall out. The legs are a little tight so I can see why some people are uncomfortable with that but it works well for me. I'm a 6 in all Lulu gear and 6 in these as well, so I'd say they're true to size. And they make my butt look great!

booty enhancing shorts
Absolutely in-love with these shorts to the point of sweet talking my husband in to getting me a second pair as an early birthday present. The pockets are actually useful with no slip ups, very comfortable over all for either the gym or at home! I'll definitely be living in these all summer - thus why I need a second pair. The opening for the legs are a little tight, but the fabric is so stretchy that it wasn't a huge issue for me.
Definitely grab a pair while you still can!

perfect for getting my BQ!
These are the best running spandex shorts! I have tried so many brands (Nike, Adidas, Oiselle, Asics) in search of finding the perfect racing shorts for running. All the others seem to ride up and have no pockets! I purchased these last fall in preparation for the Philly Marathon and they were amazing. Over 26.2 miles they never road-up, amazing! All the pockets held my GUs & other essentials and everything was easy to access without breaking my stride! These were absolutely perfect on my marathon and I will be wearing them next year in Boston!

I'd buy another pair
As mentioned by others, the leg openings are tight. So I sized up one size and they fit perfectly. Problem solved. The pockets are great for running with my phone etc. and they don't seem to ride up at all once I'm sweaty. The fabric feels thicker than my older pair of LLL luxtreme capris which is great... no cellulite shows in these shorts :) I gave 5/5 because I will probably buy them again when I reach my next fitness goal.

I love these shorts. The waistband fits perfectly, they're stylish, the pockets are nice, and that's where it ends. I am a 4 in LLL and when these shorts arrived in the mail I was really excited. I tried them on the the darn legs were way too tight! They dug into my thighs! They are still okay to wear and I wear them, I just wish that they would make the thigh part bigger because it's very annoying.

I love these shorts so much that I just ordered another pair. After reading the reviews, I decided to I size up to an 8. I am regularly a size 6 or a 4 in lulu. Sizing up made all the difference in my waist and thighs (tightness referred to in the reviews). My legs are muscular but lean, and they fit beautifully. I love the thicker material they are made with and are perfect for a super sweaty Florida workout. They hold sweat and dry quickly...no dripping. The best part about these shorts are the pockets on each side that hold a cell phone perfectly. I feel comfortable enough in these to go to the grocery store/run errands.
