Bhakti Yoga Short
fit well, but expensive
I got these the first day they came out before the price change (which was really annoying). I got them tts and they fit well. The brief is a bit snug on my butt, but not uncomfortably so. It does cause a line in the shorts. The leg opening of the shorts is already quite generous, so I dont want to size up. the waist band is awesome. these are flattering overall. much more flattering than the boogie shorts on me. i'd get another pair if the price didnt go up.

Finally hot yoga shorts for girls with big thighs!
I have athletic legs and till now I have been forced to wear speed shorts or capris to hot yoga. I've tried every pair of yoga shorts Lulu (and other companies) make and nothing looks right on my legs. These are perfect. The shop girl said to size up, but my normal size fit perfect. They are right amount of snug, no one wants shorts riding up in inversions. The material is lightweight, but doesn't feel cheap. The waist band is very comfortable. They have held up to several washings so far.
For reference I'm 5'3 110 lbs and a size 4, same size as in speed shorts.

Love These Shorts!
I love these! I especially like the built in shorts underneath so my bum doesn't fall out in those oh-so-bent-over poses. The waistband does truly lie flat against you so there's no unwanted tugging or bunching. Great product! Definitely will be buying more.

Must Buy for Bikram
These shorts are fabulous for Bikram yoga. They are super comfortable and very lightweight. They didn't need any adjusting or tugging during class. I was initially worried that they might show a little too much during some poses (no skimping on hair removal!) but they stayed just where they were supposed to be. If there wasn't a mirror staring me in the face I'd forget I was wearing them.
I stayed true to size in these shorts and they fit comfortably.

Fantastic hot yoga shorts
These fit true to size for me - I'm a 4 in almost all lulu bottoms, and these were no exception. For reference I'm 5'6" and 125lbs. The waistband on these is particularly nice - it doesn't dig in but lies nice and flat, very flattering. I felt fully covered in my Bikram class, but also had plenty of room to move. These were a great investment, and I may need to get another pair.

Love, love, love
I wanted these for yoga and indoor gym workouts. I sized up from my usual 4 and found that the fit was better across the hips, the leg openings a little wider and still super flattering. The material is light as air. The panty doesn't budge. They do what LLL promised; the fit is just trial and error.

Perfect in Hot Yoga
I bought a pair of these in December for hot yoga, and I have literally worn them to every hot yoga class since. I was wearing them so much I decided to get another pair to rotate between.
Before these I used my regular boogie shorts, but I love these so much better for hot yoga. The band wicks away all the sweat that runs down my back, and the legs of the shorts are very breathable.

I have a rather curvaceous bootay. I'm no Kim Kardashian, but IHOP won't be calling anytime soon to get its pancakes back either. For some reason, Lululemon can't seem to make a short that doesn't end up shorter in the back than the front on me. They must have lost all their protractors to measure curvature. The length on the model is longer than it was on me, which did my thighs no justice (sorry Chip, my thighs touched way back when I was a sliver of 98 pounds too). If you have those little tiny pokey legs or dancer/runner legs, these will look amazing on you. If you don't fall into the gap, these won't be as flattering. For reference: 5'4" 132lbs.

disappointed with this company
I submitted a review about the price change in these shorts and Lululemon decides not to post the review because it will make them look bad. I have invested thousands of dollars into this company and now they have a huge ego and the quality has dropped tremendously. Still don't understand why the shorts when from $48 to $58.

Perfect Bikram Shorts
These are the perfect shorts for Bikram yoga. They don't ride, they don't get weighed down with sweat, and they require no yanking or adjusting during class. The wide waste band ensures no muffin top for those puffy days, and the liner keeps things under wraps even during standing bow. I would forget that I'm even wearing them, except they look so cute and flattering! They are a good alternative for when you're not feeling the really tight, really short swimsuit-type shorts.
For anyone who bought the lulu hot move short (I think it was called) about a year and a half ago (same material but with ties on the sides), this is almost the same short; fits the same and wears almost the same.
Buy multiple colors; you'll be sad if you don't!
