Reverse Groove Short (Regular) *Full-On Luon
Argh! The worst shorts ever? I am a loyal lulu fan that really appreciates good clothing during all my sweat-life activities, but this one is just a miserable piece. I am 26 y/o, 5'8" 107 lbs and ordered these in a 4. I was aware that some lulu shorts just sit better if you order a size up (I am normally a size 2 lulu bottoms!) Even with that, the size 4 created this heinous camel toe during my first wear through hot yoga. It was so awful, embarrassing and uncomfortable the entire 90-min, I was tugging, pulling, readjusting and incredibly distracted by this awful pair of shorts. I went right back to the store and explained to them why i was unhappy with this product and what my experience was like through class. The girl just rolled her eyes and told me that she can't do anything, i should probably have gone a size up (umm, what?? I am 107 pounds using a size 4 as it is!) and that there IS NOTHING she can do for me. Ugh. Worst shorts, WORSE customer service.

Nice fit but need elastic
I like the fit of these shorts and comfortable material. Only problem is they could really use an elastic/rubber strip at the bottom of the leg since they ride up A LOT to the point that they are ridiculously short. I would probably not buy them again but if they had an elastic I would because then they'd stay in place at the right length.

Love them but...
I love groove shorts best workout shorts by far, but you changed them, I bought my last pair 2 or so years ago, and since then they are solid chunk different, first off you changed the gusset, from a diamond to a triangle. Now why is this a problem you may ask, because the diamond helped to stop them riding up on the legs in the front, and stopped the occasional camel toe, but I really care about having to pull the front legs down after less than 30 seconds of exercise. Please bring back the old gusset cause its ride up city here. Other than that I love the colour (pink) I got it to match the no limits tank in the same pattern, love the softness fabric is thicker than that old but not a big deal , but seriously change it so they don't ride up!

I have a pair of regular Reverse Grooves and absolutely love them. I purchased these as I liked one of the colors better and generally like Luon. They fit well, are super comfortable, look great, but the only issue is that they constantly ride up and slip around. I wear my regular Groove shorts for just about everything - CrossFit, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, cardio kickboxing, etc. But these are almost unwearable due to how much they slide around and roll up, especially when throwing kicks. Fit true to size, 5'6" and 140lbs, size 6.

This is my third pair of Reverse Groove Short (Regular), my first in Full-On Luon. These shorts fit me exactly like the other Reverse Groove Shorts. The material is a bit thicker and more supportive than the non-Full-On Luon and has a very soft feel just like the description says. I wear a size 4 in all Lulu bottoms including this one. I felt no need to size up. I like the extra support, had no camel toe problems, and the short stays put during yoga.

You'll need to size up in these shorts because they're tighter than the other lulus I've owned. Overall, still a great pair of shorts, I just REALLY wish I sized up!

I typically wear a size 4 in Lulu, but I opted for a 6 in these shorts because I have thicker thighs and I wanted to avoid the sausage look on my legs. They fit well (I'm certainly glad I sized up) but I find myself constantly adjusting the legs on these things. They are always rolling up on the front when doing squats, for example, and I'll have to stop to roll them back down. Very annoying and uncomfortable (umm cameltoe anyone?).
I do like how these suckers are reversable. Bored of black shorts? Reverse them and they're pink! So fun. Also, I purchased them for Bikram, and they did just fine in the class. I've used them during crossfit training as well and they were good, but again, constantly having to stop my workout to roll down the front of my shorts is very annoying.
