We wanted an all-sport short to keep us covered while we're doing squats, lunges and practising asana of every kind. We made these out of Luon fabric to have four-way stretch and to wick away moisture when we work up a sweat. A reversible design means getting dressed in the dark is a snap.

great for dance
These shorts are perfect for dancing (I do ballet and contemporary). They are comfortable and I love the length, compared to the boogie short. These aren't so long that it looks weird but aren't so short my bum is falling out. They are tight enough to wear for ballet classes as well as in an emergency!
Flaws to an otherwise perfect pair of shorts; the dreaded camel-toe, which is common in dance shorts, and the stitching on the hem on the leg has started to come undone for some reason, which I find surprising for lululemon.
I prefer these shorts rather than the shorts from ivivva simply because these ones are longer.
With performance season coming soon, these are great for under costumes. I also suggest going to the stores to buy these because the waistbands are prettier.
Overall, I adore these shorts!

First Disappointing LuLu Purchase
I was so excited to see these shorts on sale a little while back, and as a huge fan of the longer groove shorts (I have three pairs), I did not hesitate to purchase the shorter version. These shorts, to put it bluntly, are terrible on me. The fit is the oddest thing, and camel toes abound. They also hit at an odd place on the thigh. I cannot, under any circumstances, wear these outside of my house. I recognize the reasoning behind not having returns on sale items, but these were so not what I was expecting, and the quality is disappointing in comparison to all of the other LuLu clothing items I own.

Camel toe Central
These are super comfy shorts BUT hello camel toe! I didn't noticed until I got to the gym and spent most of my time pulling my shorts down to avoid the front side ride up! Really Lulu?! Definitely need a better return policy. I would love for your designers to have to walk around the streets of Vancouver with their camel toe hanging out!

Everything but that dreaded cameltoe
I bought these shorts because they were ULTRA comfy and didn't ride up as much as other shorts, seriously the most comfortable pair of yoga/gym shorts I've ever tried. But then I noticed I had a cameltoe while I was working out at the gym and I was mortified. There cannot be enough good factors about these shorts that can make up for that.
I will try on a black pair to see if its noticeable in those because, like I said, they're so comfy so I don't want to completely write these off.

I enjoy the tall version of these way more. Please bring out more colours with the tall groove shorts!

If you like camels
Put these on, instantly noticed Camel Toe...yet they weren't too tight. Tried on the next size up which were falling off and yet again Camel Toe. Showed my husband without saying anything, first thing out of his mouth was asking what was up with the front?
Last time I checked, Camel Toe was not in style so how come these give you that automatic look? I looked at my old faithful Groove Pants that are 9 yrs old and it seems the seam in now different.
What are you doing Lulu? Trying to make us look ridiculous while working out? Please fix the Camel Toe effect cause butts look great in these. Giving 1 star for the color and that it's reversible. Keep that part up please.

Camel toe, plus major pilling after first wear (and no I don't have monster thighs Chip Wilson. Pass on these ladies, save the money for another brand.

BEWARE Camel Toe!
I was so excited to get these shorts for my birthday as I've been wanting these shorts to go to the gym in and run. I put them on and INSTANTLY there is pulling of the front seem upwards causing a camel toe effect. The crotch gusset is a triangle, which is causing this. Why on earth would Lululemon change a time proven diamond gusset that prevents camel toe to a triangle that causes one! I had to return these and with the money bought Nike shorts -with a proper diamond gusset that doesn't cause camel toe. I'm SO disappointed in the quality and obvious lack of care and attention to their clothing, because it's what used to set lululemon apart from the competition.

I own 3 pair of the groove pants from a few years ago. Absolutely love them. They have the diamond shaped crotch gusset, which was awesome.
I recently purchased 2 pair of groove shorts in the NYC store, assuming I would love them as much as the pants. Didn't even save the receipt or tags, assuming that I would most definitely love them. Nope. Both the groove pants and shorts have been redesigned with a triangular crotch gusset, which results in serious camel toe. It looks very bad and is uncomfortable during workouts. My husband even commented, "Honey, what is wrong with your pants?"
Last week, I visited one of the Las Vegas stores. The kind ladies there helped me comb the store for a pant with a crotch that would work for me. The only bottoms with a diamond shaped gusset in the store were the In The Flow Crop II. I am very happy with that purchase, but am disappointed that I may run out of options to purchase at Lulu. Even the "seamless" bottoms do not work.
In terms of construction...Even though I am a size 4, I have a rounded back side. I think that pulls the triangular guesset too far to the back, resulting in camel toe. Please please bring back the diamond shaped gusset! I want to keep on shopping at Lulu.
Lulu, hope you can respond to this post. Really want to keep on buying!

holy camel toe batman!
i so badly wanted these shorts to work. they're the perfect length - the boogie shorts show a little too much for me - and i really like that they're reversible, but y'all, that gusset! not only does the shape/placement of the gusset cause the most serious case of camel toe, it's also uncomfortable. i normally wear a 4 in lulu bottoms, but i sized up to a 6 to try and avoid CT. that didn't work. i'm keeping the shorts since i bought them on sale. i wish they had the same gusset that's on the one for the om unitard!
