Best pair of casual shorts These shorts are amazing! I have the Noir jacket as well which I also love. The fabric is super light and living in South Florida light clothing is a staple. I'm 5'2" and 114 pounds and 40 years old and the size 4 fit perfectly. They are really comfortable and the mesh pockets are stylish and deep enough to hold my phone (which is in a heavy otterbox) and keys and sturdy enough that I don't have to worry about the pocket ripping. I would buy another pair of these shorts in a different color. They are the perfect length and have the nice option of going shorter although I will most likely will not be doing that route.

space shorts love noir line! very European! very French! very elegant, mysterious. Shorts are not exception. mesh is great! button on a side sexy. Comfy and light. More colors with more colors and texture mesh please. Make loose crops like that please. They can look like shorts - skirt. I can design and send you ideas. September 28, 2014
Shorts with decent pockets Finally Lululemon made some shorts that are not super short and have deep pockets in the front and even a pocket in the back. I always carry my phone with me when I walk and fitted shorts with no pockets will not work. I was so happy when I saw these shorts they fit true to size are not too short or too long. I think the waist hits at a perfect point. I don't mind the drawstring in the front because some of my tops are loose so it doesn't matter. I ended up ordering them in both colors. Do note that these shorts do not have an internal liner which is fine for me but others may not like this. September 19, 2014
smaller size please I would have loved it if they had made these shorts in size 2. I like the length and style, however size 4 was a bit too big. Lululemon if you plan to do another run of these shorts, please consider making them in size 2 as well. This is something i can wear year round because i live in Hawaii. Also, please do something with the tie at the waist, its too bulky. August 29, 2014
Almost perfect I wanted to love these shorts but I'm going to return them. I don't find them high waisted on me at all, which isn't necessarily bad, but the drawstring really protrudes a lot since it's so thick, so my shirt hangs over it and makes my stomach look bigger which is the last thing I want! I also wanted these because I thought they wouldn't ride up and they'd look more like regular shorts, but they still ride up like normal exercise shorts. It wasn't the worst, I'd actually keep them if it wasn't also for the drawstring. I even tried to take it out but they sew it down on the back, which is a good idea for keeping it in place but not if you want to take it out. Oh well! Gonna exchange for the mesh skirt!

Classy shorts I'm always on the lookout for bottoms that have a higher rise because I have a long torso. I bought these in my usual size 8 (5'9", 145 lbs) in cadet blue. Although they don't quite reach my natural waistline, these classy-looking play shorts conform to my hips in a flattering way. The stretchy waistband is forgiving and does not give me muffin top like a tighter waistband and too-short rise will. The longer inseam provides good coverage without looking frumpy. Best of all, my husband says they make my bum look great. Nice job, Lulu Lab! These are a keeper. July 31, 2014
Pure genius These are pricier than most, but the look and feel are worth it. I love the mesh pockets. Not sure how this came about in the lab, but it's my favorite shorts ever. The adjustable length and mesh pockets makes the the perfect short, can be dressed up or down. worth every penny! July 26, 2014
PERFECT SHORTS I just received the blue one in the mail, and I've ordered the black one right away! At last some longer shorts from Lulu! I love them! Classy, comfortable, and a great fit! Make them in more colors please! July 26, 2014
flattery/comfort These shorts are super cute and very flattering. The fabric is stretchy and the length is just right. I tend to shy away from too short shorts. These are a perfect length! They will be super cute on those hot days running around town or hiking up the nearest trail. I ordered black and am going to get blue too! July 25, 2014
Awesome shorts I just got these shorts and I love them. I wear an 8 in shorts and pants from Lululemon and stuck with an 8 here. I am 5'6 and 140 with an athletic build. I would recommend these to everyone. Very comfortable! July 24, 2014
