Run: Pace Setter Skirt *4-way Stretch (Tall)
'Tall' is not very tall..
I ALMOST love this skirt! I've tried it on several times at the store and would love to buy it except my main use for it would be for golf. The courses I golf at have pretty strict dress code rules for how long a skirt or shorts must be on women. I am 5'9 and the tall length skirt is still more than 6" above my knees, which violates dress code. Please please make an 'extra tall' or a golf version of this skirt. I would buy 10 of them!

Please make more, MORE, I say!
This skirt is fantastic! I wear it to play squash and for running, and it's perfect! I really wish the Tall version was better-stocked and better supported in terms of colour options, because it's not just the tall ladies opting for this skirt: I'm on the short side (5'4"), but I prefer the extra length on the tall version (who are you magical people who can get away with a sub 4" inseam?!). When I see a new colour pop up, I hopefully trundle over to my local store only to leave empty-handed, my size having already been sniped. The stock availability really doesn't match the demand. More colours and sizes in stock, please!

Have always loved these but now having issues
Up until the past 6 months I would have given these a 5 STAR NO QUESTION!!!! I have always loved these skirts. I own more than 10 and they range from 3 years old to only a few months old. I wear them for 5k's and up to marathons. They are super flattering and highly functional. My concern now is with the quality of the stitching. In 2 of my skirts (purchased in late march last year and July) the inside thigh stitching has completely been unraveling. This is so frustrating!! I've been injured since September with a broken leg so I haven't used them since before that. I don't understand how my skirts that are 3 yrs old show almost no wear and tear but these newer ones are falling apart! I am bummed to have to write such a poor review. Getting to a store to complain just isn't very convenient for me, considering I've been on crutches and doing rehab. I have my fingers crossed these two skirts just happen to be "lemons" and all the other skirts will still have the superior quality that I am used to.

I'm 5'8" and finally succumbed to buying the regular length because I wanted the skirt so bad but darn I need the tall! I love the fit and the extra length would make it perfect. Had to knock off a star because of availability! Another reviewer said it right, you guys are leaving $$ on the table not making more of the tall length. Were out here, help a tall girl out!!!!!!!!

Tall is ideal for golf
Love that this comes in tall. This is more modest for conservative golf courses. I didn't buy it forever because I felt it had too much going on in the back. After seeing a few friends golf in it, I decided to order. It is great and the 4 way stretch is nice. Hope there are more skirts in tall in the future.

Great multifunctional skirt!
Love this skirt. Started playing tennis again and this skirt hits all of the needs: has a great ball holder, is long enough where my toosh isn't going to show when I'm running around the court (and I'm a leggy lady), and is cute to boot. I currently play indoors since currently the courts are snow covered, but can easily fit a pair of leggings or capris under the skirt for extra warmth.
Overall: Grab it! You'll be glad you did.

Perfect for All of My Activities
I love this skirt! It's perfect for everything I do, and I love the tall option. A little more fabric doesn't hurt. I'm 130lbs and 5'4", and my regular 6 works wonderfully. The ball pocket is genius, too. I don't have a problem with it riding up either, thanks to the silicon grips underneath the shorts. Even if you don't play tennis, this skirt is a hit.

Brilliant product - not enough tall colours
Since I discovered the tall pace setter a few months ago I have been dreaming of the same colour assortment as the regular one. I am an avid tennis player and these skirts are absolutely perfect for the game - and flirty to boot!
However I have had to travel extensive lenghts to visit various stores to pick up "what they have"- typically ONE skirt in 12 tall, and all three acknowledged that they seldom receive any selection of colours.
The stores often do not know when an item present on the website will be available, and despite receiving the email newsletter, I often find that the 12 tall is sold out before I can even think of buying one online. So frustrating!!!
I am not sure that I understand the marketing strategy behind it - there is now a black market for these where people are paying double and at times triple the money for the same skirt - I won't pay that for one skirt but I would definitly pay triple amount for three original Lulu different colour skirts!
I too feel cheated for being an avid sportfan - my tall legs make me very athletic - isn't Lulu all about encouraging us to practice more sport???

All Pace Setter colors should come in Tall length
This is a fantastically designed skirt. I adore it and have been purchasing it ever since it first came out. I even owned the predecessor, called the Speed skirt. I just counted and I have 21 different colors of this Pace Setter style hanging in my closet. I include this information not to show off, but as a testament to the fact that I know what I am talking about and that I am a loyal customer.
To Lulu headquarters: Do you ever notice how the Tall sizes sell out much faster than the Regulars? If any Pace Setters ever make it to markdown, they are 90% of the time the Regulars. This is a chance to make more money Lulu - just make more colors in Tall!
I know a lot of ladies like the Regular length, and I think Lulu should keep making them, but would it kill you, Lulu, to make all Pace Setter skirt colors in Tall as well? Frankly, it is terribly undemocratic that only select colors come in Tall. What, don't tall people deserve access to the same colors that shorter people can get their hands on?
In the past 3-4 months alone, I have been waiting and waiting for the Tall to come out in these following colors, but they never arrived:
-Prisma Multi Guava Lava
-Flowabunga Black Angel Wing
-Wheezy Check Multi
-Dottie Eighth Gingham White Black (released last week & fingers crossed the Tall is coming)
It is very frustrating to see a beautiful new Pace Setter color come out, and then wait and wait for the right length, only to have it never show up! Please make ALL Pace Setters in Tall as well!

I love these, my legs are my best feature, but at 5'10" i am not confident enough in the grip at the hem that they will stay in place while I am instructing and dancing in my Jazzercise class, so I wear bike shorts under them.
I wish the shorts were 2 inches longer and more form fitting. They are super cute and I get loads of compliments.
