I wore this around town on a hot day and it was great! TTS this skirt is easy to match up with cute tee shirts, polos and sneakers. My request for the next version: help with the pockets. The tennis ball pocket could open to the top instead of the bottom to make it more functional and the zippered pocket should be bigger.

I bought this skirt last week. It is my first Lululemon item. Based solely on reputation I opted to give it a go on a 7-mile run. I had in the back of my mind that I may regret that decision, expecting to end up with shorts that crept up or the dreaded chafing! I am thrilled to report the shorts didn't move, I had ZERO chafing, and I'm ready to buy another one.
The only 'critique' I have is it would be nice to have a bigger pocket somewhere on the skirt for iPod or phone. I always run with music.
Very true to size as well. I am 5'7" and 135 pounds and bought a 6. I have short legs but purchased the "tall" for extra coverage. The regular was way too short!

Pocket starting to fall off
I absolutely love Lulu. I finally found an athletic product that is offered in tall lengths and I cannot seem to get enough of it for both active wear and casual wear.
The fit of this skirt is really flattering. It still feels a tiny bit short but considering that there are shorts underneath that feeling subsided quickly. It hugs in all the right places and allows you to be active and not have to worry about re-adjusting your clothing. I love the sticky strip on the inside of the shorts.... nothing slides down or rides up.
I washed this skirt once in a garment bag on a regular cycle, laid flat to dry then wore it once. Upon washing the exact same way the second time I noticed that the thread was coming undone from the little pocket on the leg.... a pocket i hadn't even used when I wore it. I could pull the pocket off but I would really love to be able to use it for it's purpose the next time I'm out. I don't live in the city and it has definitely exceeded the allocated time to return the skirt....

I love Lululemon and everything has to offer. Most of my closet is lulu as I am an avid yoga and gym goer between classes and work.
This was the first skirt I purchased and I only wore it once before I noticed there was a thread coming out in the dead front center of the skirt.
I tried to cover it with longer shirts but it is so noticeable and not the normal quality of my other lulu gear.
Taking it to my local lulu they looked down on me and acted like the entire situation was my own fault. I didn?t have my receipt; I couldn?t prove I ?only wore it once.? Even despite taking it back to the same educator I purchased it from I could not get an exchange on this product.
I?m sad Lulu. Your stuff is usually so great. I just wish your customer service was just as good.

Favorite running skirt!
This is by far the best running skirt ever. I am distance runner and these are my go to running bottoms. The inner shorts do not budge at all and I have run up to 10 miles in them. No adjusting needed at all. I am 5'10" and weigh 150 and ordered a 6 tall so I would definitely say TTS. The only thing I would change is making "talls" a little longer. Highly recommend!

Perfect - except liner/shorts are see-thru
These are my favourite skirts/skorts to wear for tennis & running. I own them in many colors. In the past year or so though, I have noticed that the liner/shorts are more sheer than they were when this style first came out. Everything else is perfect about this skirt, except for this sheerness issue.
I would think that after what Lululemon has been through (especially in the media) in regards to sheer pants, that they would make an effort to prevent ANY sheerness at all in any kind of bottoms. Just because there is a skirt layer on top (which is thin anyway), does not mean that the shorts can be sheer.
It is completely distracting that when I bend over to pick up a tennis ball, I have to make sure that my behind is facing away from my opponent or spectators. And when running, if I have to bend down to tie my shoelaces, I always have to make sure that my butt faces away from the road, so that I am not flashing all the cars. This issue is most prominent when the shorts are light in color. But even in some of the darker colors, you can see skin underneath where the outline of my boyshorts/underpants ends.
Bottom line ? pun intended: my purchases of these otherwise awesome skirts has declined drastically since I started to notice this sheer shorts problem. I am not buying many of the newer colors, even though I like the look of them very much. Please fix this!

I have been tossing around the idea of a skirt to run in for years! I tried this skirt on years ago, and it just didn't fit right. I read a review the other day where the reviewer described herself as 5'6 and wearing the tall. I was baffled! Being 5'7, I thought, why haven't I tried the TALL on?!? Went into my local store yesterday, tried it on, and BAM!! Game changer!!! Fits beautifully. Wore the skirt for a 7.5 mile run this morning, and it was wonderful!!! I will be going back to purchase another one today :-)

Never thought I would love a running skirt
I tried on a few different running shorts from lulu but felt that thigh rub might drive me crazy during long runs. I tried this running skirt because of the length of the liner shorts. Success- first time wearing this skirt was on a 13 mile run and I am happy to report zero chafing or thigh rub! Liner shorts didn't budge during the run! I'm 5.6" and the tall is perfect length. I found this skirt to be a bit larger than the usual lululemon sizes, so if you are in between sizes I recommend sizing down.
More colours are needed in this skirt and the short liner pocket would be better turned around for runners.

make more in tall!
I tried this skirt on in the store, it was waaayyy too short in regular. Thankfully I discovered the tall available online. Fits great. Very comfortable, and versatile. I use it for golf and for out and about. Please make more colors available in tall. Also is there a reason why size 10 sells out so fast? Do you make less in that size? Also, I know you designed this for running and tennis, but if the pocket were turned right side up it would translate to so many other uses.
