Run: Pace Setter Skirt *2-way Stretch (Tall)
cool marbling pattern
i purchased this in the tall even though i'm 5'5", i like the coverage the tall offers in the back. i didn't think the marbling pattern would look good but when i tried it on, i fell in love with it. as with all pace setters skirts, it's comfy at the waist for me, love the pockets and the underpants are black. i have about 8 of these skirts and i do wish Lulu would bring back the marathon skirt (my personal fave)

A Great Wear Everywhere Skirt!
I am 5'8" and bought the Tall version. I have worn this skirt for golf and it looks great and is a good length. And the fabric is stiff enough that it does not flap around in the wind (therefore, does not show off your behind when outside).
But you can really wear this skirt anywhere, anytime for anything. Super comfortable!
Also has the rubber strips on the bottom of the shorts to hold them in place.
Highly recommend this, probably going back to buy another one in a different color!

Great for golf!
This skirt is perfect for golf! I ordered the Tall (I'm 5' 4''), and it's the perfect length. In regular clothing (not Lulu), I generally order size 4, but ordered this skirt in a 6, and it fits just right. The fabric is cool and comfortable, and the fit is very flattering. Please make more in other solids. Also, create additional skirts that would be appropriate for golf.

No Chub Rub!
The rubber lining on the edge of the shorts under the skirt ACTUALLY keeps the shorts in place! My thighs cause every single pair of shorts ever to ride up, and these shorts stayed in place for a short (4k) run, and held in place through squats and lunges at the gym. My inner thighs have never been so thankful.
The length is great - I'm 5'10" and the skirt is about an inch shorter than my fingertips.
I also feel cute and sassy running in the skirt, which is ridiculous but I love it. I highly recommend this skirt!

I bought this skirt for tennis and also wear it for spin. It's very cute and comfy and I get a ton of compliments. I wish the pocket was bigger to fit an iPhone and the ball pocket is a joke, it takes 10 minutes to put a ball in or take it out so I just stick it under the shorts. I'm 5'4"/128 and got a 6 Tall because I like it a bit longer. More colors please!

I bought this skirt in the polka dot print. It's really really cute, but still fairly short. The fabric feels like good quality and the ruffles on the back are cute. The only reason why I gave it 3 stars instead of 5 is because this skirt would've looked so much better with a few inches added to it!
For reference: I'm 5'11, 170 lbs and have a normal build with curves. (36D)

Spectacular Running Skirt!
I'll be honest, when I first saw pictures of this skirt I thought it was too "cutesy". Not so! I am truly in love with this skirt. First, the material is fantastic. Kept me cool on my 13 mile run, no chafing, the shorts underneath fit comfortably and stayed put. I am very glad this skirt is offered in "tall" as the regular looked atrocious on me. I'm 5'9 135 and purchased a 6 tall - perfection. I was most concerned with the pleats in the back being too "girly". They really are flattering - the flat front, I think, helps the skirt from being too over-the-top. I am really looking forward to wearing this in a half I'm running in two weeks. I'm sure I'll purchase some other colors if they come in stock! My only suggestion would be to make the back pocket a bit larger so it would fit my iPhone - that would make this skirt 6 out of 5 stars.

I have a few of these in the Tall length and love them for tennis and running around. The length and material was PERFECT! I just received the new pretty pink stripe and am so disappointed. Not only is the length a couple inches shorter now, the fabric is super thin and shows the compression shorts underneath. Not a cute look. So bummed because I built a new outfit with a tank and LS swiftly as pictured and it's all going back since the skirt was a dud. I'm hoping this is an isolated incident and they haven't permanently changed the styling of this popular skirt!

Cute, but not for the long run
This is a fun comfy skirt for short runs, and I like wearing it around town too, but on a long run, the seams in the shorts under the skirt really tore up my legs. It was a bummer because I really love the look and coverage, but I leave it in the closet if I'm doing more than a few miles. For reference, I'm 5'9" 140 and the Sz 8 worked for me, especially with the drawstring to adjust the waist. I could also do without the ball pocket. I wish I could modify it somehow to be useful to me.

Pace setter Stripe Angel/soot Muffin Top Again
Well, Lulu did it again with this skirt. Just like the plaid, the waist band does not stretch. How could this happen again?
This time I did not take off the tags and will be retuning it to my local store.
Has anyone else had the same experience with this new skirt?
