Groove Short *Full-On Luon (Regular)
Don't be fooled by inseam length!
I was so excited to find shorts with a (slightly) longer inseam, in great patterns, too! However, my excitement waned after wearing them for about 15 minutes.
I have large, muscular thighs and feel more comfortable wearing longer shorts, which are hard to find. The patterns were really appealing, so I took a chance and bought 2 pair, even though the inseam was shorter than I'd prefer.
The shorts seemed perfect for hot yoga, but they never made it there. After wearing them around the house for 15 minutes before class, the legs had ridden up and they looked like hotshorts. I pulled the legs back down, but they crept up again within a few minutes of walking around.
I went online to read reviews, thinking maybe I'd purchased the wrong size. Many other reviewers shared my experience, or fared worse. Fearing the dreaded "camel toe", I decided to return both pair. While at the store, I tried on a smaller size - which created thigh chub, and a larger size - which felt too large in the waist...
For now, I'm sticking with my Athleta and Zella shorts, but I'm hopeful LL will come out with a solution.

Definitely disappointed. I was excited about these shorts and bought 4 pairs of them. They fit me a little loose but some how still create muffin top and ride up and create chaffing. The colors faded after the first was on a cold cycle. One of the pairs I have still have the tags on them because they just weren't worth it.

very disappointing shorts
I came into the store looking for "What the Sport Shorts" but they weren't in stock and the staff assured me they were just as good - they are not.
They say they are designed for yoga, run, gym - everything - I have now done all of those things in these shorts and all I get are shorts that ride up in the front and the back and put on a show for the entire gym. I attempted to teach as spin class today and it was like teaching in my underwear.
I hope with the new cycle line Lululemon makes shorts that don't ride up - because I am very disappointed in these shorts.

Worked for me
I sized up after reading the reviews on these shorts in case that was a factor in the riding issue. Worst case scenario I'd lose 34$. I really have no camel toe or riding issues at all. I'm petite, but have shape and riding is often a problem for me - not with these. I wear them over ballet tights.

Not as bad as everyone reviews
I contemplated buying these shorts many times. Every time I was convinced I'd try them out I'd reread a few reviews and chicken out. I needed shorts for a judo class and decided to just pull the trigger. I sized up a size as everyone suggested and they fit fine, no camel toe. Glad i sized up. BUT!! THEY DO RIDE UP!! At the beginning of my judo class they were perfect length and by the end it looked like I was wearing sexy lingerie. I decided they might be more of a running around short and not ones to be worn doing rolls and throwing people but on an average lap around the track I probably was grabbing at them 7 billion times if not constantly. Nice. Good length. Maybe just not super ideal for extreme activities if you've got some junk in the trunk.

gave me camel toe!
I was hoping these shorts would be great for bikram yoga, as they're a bit longer than some of the other shorts and they didn't give me muffin top in the store (yay!). Unfortunately, I noticed in the mirror in class that they do give me the appearance of camel toe. I'm pretty bummed about it, since the length and waistband are perfect! I have them in black, wondering if it would be less noticeable in another color.

These short ride UP
I bought these for hot yoga. They seemed long enough not to expose my rear end.. They ARE long enough but i'll be returning these shorts because they ride up... and I was just trying them on walking around my house.

holy camel toe batman
I have never worn a pair of more painful shorts. I do not understand how lulu can keep getting the same feedback and not make a change. Is it because people keep buying them? I love the colors and general fit but the camel toe issue is unacceptable. I even went up a size and it did no good. I have a looser waist, looser legs then boom there it is! paaaaaainful camel toe. I can't imagine trying to run in these. Please fix this!

I'm super sad about the newer design of these shorts. I had a pair of these that I bought back around 2010/2011, and unfortunately, I lost that pair of shorts. (Super mad about that, since they're not cheap.) I loved them, so I purchased a new pair to replace them. This second pair seems to be a newer design, and it's not wonderful. The gusset is set further back, so camel toe happens when I'm just walking around (and yes, I'm wearing the right size shorts), and honestly, that's the only drawback to these shorts. They're comfortable otherwise - the waistband is perfect, the length is just right - but as a dancer, I can't have my shorts riding up into my crotch every 3 steps.
LLL, you don't need to revamp the design on certain products (like the Flow Y bra & the Scuba hoodie). Please take feedback like this into account - I've seen countless complaints about the new Flow Y bra design (and I have also complained), and nothing has been done.
