Groove Short *Full-On Luon (Regular)
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.

Make more colors, please!!
So, I love these shorts! They're a good alternate for girls like me who have a booty that falls out of the boogie shorts. Yes, they ride up, but I don't mind that because I'd like them to be a little shorter. There is one thing that I HATE about these shorts.... MAKE THEM IN MORE COLORS!! Geez, all you do is change the waistband on the black shorts. I don't care that much about the waistband. I want colors... like the boogies. Why can't you just make these in all the colors in prints that you make for the boogies?!!! These shorts are perfect for Crossfit, but more colors, please!!!

I purchased these shorts for the primary purpose of running, but also to use on my rest days when I do yoga. Under the description for these shorts it states they are ?designed for: yoga, run, gym ? everything!? Just what I had in mind. I wanted a pair of stretch shorts that weren't too short and felt the length on these were ideal, as I'm a bit of a modest person. I liked how these didn't have a zippered pocket in the back as that becomes very uncomfortable when on my back during yoga. The one pocket in the waist is larger than most other waist pockets and I can easily put two gels in there; three if I don't mind a bulge, but I think three would giggle when running. For running purposes I would prefer more than one pocket; another waist pocket on the other side would be ideal, or one on the back (without a zipper). I like most everything about these shorts. They fit and feel wonderful. Love the cottony-soft feel. No muffin top. No digging at the seams. No excess material. I tried other sizes to be sure and watched lulu's online video ?Find Your Great Fit? which I've attached the link. Love the 4 way stretch, the fabric stretches and moves with my body without being at all restrictive. These shorts feel just like the 'Grove Pant' which I love. The only pitfall for me, is the legs ride up. I took them for a run yesterday for the first time. At less than half a kilometer the shorts had ridden up as far up my legs as physically possible. I was left feeling like I was wearing underwear, and feeling rather self conscious. It was impossible to keep them down. I have used them in yoga. They ride up but not nearly as quickly and I'm able to pull them down. Frankly, I love these shorts but I wish they didn't ride up. I don't recommend them for running. But I think they're acceptable for yoga. I'm a little disappointed because running was my primary purpose for making this purchase. I'll continue using these for yoga and keep looking for a suitable stretch running short. I'm looking at trying the ?What the Sport Short'. Can anyone tell me if these perform differently or should I expect these to ride up on me since the 'Grove Short' rode up? Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks.

Great for teaching yoga
I wanted some shorts that were more modest than my boogie shorts for teaching. These fit the bill. I have been using the "denim print" from a year or two ago. It was a bit thicker, and a great fabric.
