Groove Short (Regular)
Not for volleyball
I was really bummed out about these. I've loved 99% of everything I've ever had from Lulu. Sadly these were the 1%. I bought them for heavy weightlifting and volleyball, since it's hard to find spandex for VB that aren't super short. During my game, they were constantly riding up. I actually subbed out to go change into a friend's spare shorts! I had a serious case of camel toe and adjusted them after every play. I also tried them with lifting and it was the same deal. Sadly I bought a pattern on WMTM and now I have two pairs (one with tags) that I can't do anything with.

sad these shorts have changed to poor quality
I loved the groove short. I have 3 pairs that I bought over 4 years ago. And they are still great and going strong. I recently purchased a pair on sale from the cyber sale and at first I was hesitant due to the recent issues with the quality of bottoms that were being made however I thought they corrected the problem so I went ahead and ordered them. I was wrong. The shorts are completely see through when I bend over. It's such a disappointment that the material is still not fixed. I'm sad to say this is it for my Lululemon purchases.

Good shorts...not so good pilling
I love these shorts, I took them to to Hungary with me when I paddled for team Canada a couple summers ago, and they have served me well. However, within the first couple wears, they pilled pretty badly which was disappointing (much like many of the pants I've bought from the last year or so...I'm not sure I like the fabric change on many of their products for this reason).
I think these shorts are excellent for working out (not running because they do ride up a lot) and doing water sports because they dry pretty quickly. I also like to sleep in them because they're so comfy.
I did buy a pair of crops in the full luon (they're nice because it doesn't attract pet hair/lint) but I don't think I would try these in the full luon because I don't think they would be as comfy.
I'm pretty disappointed that they aren't making many patterns in these shorts anymore because they are my absolute favorites (despite the pilling).

Talls discontinued, UGH! Also, major camel toe.
I have purchased many pairs of these in tall in the past. They are seriously the BEST running shorts ever. I am thin but my thighs still JUST touch when I am running so I can't wear the regular short running shorts at this time. Major bummer! These in tall really filled the void for me. But what the h, they aren't making talls anymore? WHY NOT!?
I am 5'9" and have a 35" inseam. A tiny pair of shorts made for people with a 30" inseam is going to ride right up, and they do. Not functional. Another thing, the newer versions of these give you camel toe, as I see others have reported. My solution is to stick a panty liner to the inside of the shorts, but that is inconvenient and annoying. I have looked everywhere to find a pair of shorts comparable to the lululemon tall groove shorts, to no avail. The fact is, luon is super comfy and no one else has matched it, that I've found. I will just keep my fingers crossed that they bring back the tall groove shorts because I will buy every color to hoard!
The good: the pocket is obviously awesome, fits my iphone perfectly. The tall ones do not ride up. The material is so soft and stays where you put it. They last a long time if you don't put them in the dryer. And they are really comfortable!

wicking? Not so ....
Like these shorts, they rode up violently at first but seemed to make it through the second hour in place. I especially loved the color of this short ....However ... after a 2 hour workout I walked the streets of small town Ontario, unknowingly sporting a serious sweat crack - how totally embarrassing.
Shame it had to turn out this way cause these could have been great. I'm quickly losing the love ....

Very uncomfortable. Major camel toe and constantly needing to pull the crotch out of my lady business. I had them fitted on me at a LuLu store, so they are the right size. In the flow crops with the diamond gusset are perfect, these are awful. The triangle gusset on the posterior is useless.

I was super excited to get these shorts in the mail last week. Wore them to crossfit they stayed in place never had to pull the shorts up at all. Washed them once and now they are piling, very disappointed!

I have 3 pairs of these shorts and they are one of my favourites. They are my go to shorts when I am in the gym working on my legs. They are the perfect length, not too short and not too long. They also sit at a perfect point on the waist, not too high like some other pants or crops.(Just below belly button) (I am 5'2). They are comfortable when doing squats and lunges etc. And who can resist all the awesome waist band designs and colours! The best feature about these shorts is that they move with you, they don't restrict any motion and you can look good while working out.

Best form fitting shorts ever!
I bought the reversible version of these shorts in my local lulu store and I have been trying to resist buying every other color! I will admit I am kind of a lulu addict and have been disappointed with some items in the past but these shorts have stayed tried and true. No camel toe, don't ride up and show your bum, and most importantly have stood the test of my busy lifestyle. Unlike the boogie (which are a little short for my liking) these short's length is just right. I am about 5'8, 130 and got a size 6 and they come right above the middle of my thigh. I LIVE in these shorts! Highly recommend!

My absolute favorite shorts!
I ordered these in an 8 regular. Although I'm 6ft tall I find them to still be long enough and love the heathered grey luon. I bought these shorts in heathered black 3 or 4 years ago, have worn them incessantly and they still look new. These shorts are so comfortable, functional and look great on. I hope Lulu continues to make these shorts and appreciate them being offered in the heathered luon as I find it doesn't pill as much as regular luon.
