tight-knit, moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Full-On Luon® is a high-performance fabric that gives great support and coverage with a cottony-soft feel
why we made this
We made these classic all-sport shorts to be the MVP of our workout closet. The smooth waistband is snug enough that they don't fall down, yet they don't dig in (we'll leave muffin tops for breakfast time).

I just bought these yesterday and am already unsure about them. The gusset is way too far back (what were they thinking!?) and the front seam just digs way in and creates horrible camel toe unless you have the shorts pulled down. :(

Perfect for any workout!
I love these shorts. They are comfortable and great for any type of workout. They do ride up in the legs a little, but I don't find it too annoying. They are a good length and are flattering. I get too hot working out in capris or pants, so these are perfect for me.

Looked great on, but not really 'functional'
These shorts flatters my thighs and butt very much! I also love the print on the waist band and got compliments from my Yoga buddy. However, I didn't like it that much when class commenced. The shorts started riding up and I had to keep pulling them down. I wasn't doing any crazy inverts, merely stretch-and-hold poses.
Am pretty sure I got the right size as my waist band fit great. I wonder if it was the material i.e. it may 'stay' if it were a hot class as the perspiration may help 'stick' it to your skin? Not sure what to do with the shorts now...too pretty to not ever wear it but its just not good for class!
I love my Lululemon bras and tanks hence I thought it's time to give the bottoms a go. This is my first pair and I hesitate to purchase a second - especially when Lululemon's bottoms are not exactly the cheapest around!

I am so very disappointed in these shorts!!! the camel toe that they give a woman is AWEFUL and pathetic especially for shorts that are so expensive. I have LULU groove pants and leggings and they do not give me a camel toe. I am returning these and going back to my diadora brand shorts!!!! Step up the game LULU camel toes and disgusting and should be a thing of the past with the technology out there this day and age!!!!

I happened to find these shorts in store on sale for $24 and was excited to say the least. I got them in the pipe dream blue/white waistband in my usual size 4. I tried them on and was super excited to see that I had found cute lulu yoga shorts, on sale, in my size, with a big pocket, that were actually a modest length. I didn't hesitate to buy them and started wearing them immediately to a new yoga studio that had just opened. Since they had a promo special going on I was able to try these shorts out in a variety of classes including hatha, vinyasa, hatha flow, warm and hot classes. I'm sad to say though that they didn't hold up. My list of complaints are as follows:
-the gusset is way too far back, feels like a constant wedgie
-because the gusset is so far back, I get a really BAD camel toe and it is seriously uncomfortable
-they ride up, not enough to need a bikini wax or anything, but they definitely travel about 2 inches up from where they started
-in a warm or hot class, it's hard to pull down the crotch when it rides up
-they're cute when they're not riding up
-in warm or hot classes, the sweat helps the legs stay in place
-I now have a pair of yoga shorts
Overall though, i'm pretty disappointed with my purchase, mainly because I was so excited to finally have an affordable, practical alternative to my yoga pants or running crops that I had been using. In the Houston heat of 90 and sometimes 100+ degrees, I really needed some shorts! Unfortunately I soon found out that these weren't really all that great when after almost every pose I had to readjust the legs or the crotch. Plus I have to keep in mind to wear long flowy shirts with these shorts to avoid visible CT since I do go out in public sometimes after classes. The only bright side is that the studio is usually pretty dimly lit, so CT isn't too obvious. I wish I could return these but I bought them 2 weeks ago and on sale so I definitely don't see that happening so I guess i'm stuck with them.

full on fail!!
tried these on in store and they were AWFUL! groove shorts used to be my favourite, they were so comfy back with the regular luon about 1+ year ago. now they give the worst camel toe and are super tight in the thighs. i tried on my GO TO size and they looked 2 sizes too small and were cutting in all the wrong places--not flattering at all. will never wear these again unless they go back to the old style!!

A little shorter than my older groove shorts
These are still good but not as perfect as my older/original version from 8 yrs ago (which still look like brand new) they are definitely about a 1/4 inch shorter which is small but on shorts it's noticeable, I tried them on and felt the difference right away (enough to make me compare them to my older ones) I also prefer the diamond gusset in my older ones but these haven't created any camel toe so that's good.
Rated them at 4 based on the above info, otherwise still a great staple and highly recommend them.

Love these shorts! Fabric is wonderful and supportive without being constrictive. I personally prefer the astro style band on my pants, but for shorts, groove works well for me. Rise is perfect (not too low) as is the inseam - just the right amount of coverage so I always feel comfortable and covered. I use these primarily for hot yoga but will also try them out running once it warms up here in NL.
Note on size - these are TTS. I tried them on in a pop-up shop here locally and struggled between the 8 (which I wear in pants) or the 10 (which fit me a little better around the leg but was loose on my waist). An educator recommended the 8 as she assured me they would stretch slightly once worn for a short time - so glad I listened! Perfection.

I hate shorts but I LOVE these ones!
Okay ladies, I started running in 2006 and have NEVER run in shorts. I sweat it out every summer in my lulu pants because I try on all the shorts and hate the way they look on me (no offense to any of the shorts, I just hate my legs in shorts). I'm 5' 1'' and weight 125 lbs.
HOWEVER, I tried the Groove short and LOVE them just as much as my Groove pant (flatters the bum region!). It's exactly what I was looking for....not too tight and not too loose. I also bought the block it pocket shorts and they remind me of cycling shorts without the padding... but the Groove short is so much better!
They are also true to size so if you wear a 6 in the Groove pant then you should order he same in the shorts.

I love these shorts. Wore them to a cardio barre class and they were amazing. I'm 5'2", 125lbs. and I got a 6. They fit great, and come down to about my fingertips. I had no trouble with sheerness and they stayed in place pretty well. I did have to pull them down a couple times, but they have no rubber grip on the inside so I expected that. These shorts are SO flattering especially from the back. They fit like a glove and I can tell I'll be wearing them all the time.
