Run: Pace Setter Skirt (Regular) *2-way Stretch
Love this skirt!! Please make a dress!
I absolutely love this skirt. I wear it for tennis and the fit and comfort is great. A ball fits perfectly under the built in shorts and I always get compliments when I wear it. I am waiting for Lululemon to make tennis dresses! Cute tennis dresses are few and far between and I know Lulu would make the perfect one. I will be patiently waiting :)

Great for running & tennis but ball pocket?
I love this skirt for running and I love this skirt for tennis. There is a ball pocket but it is nonfunctional. The opening is on the bottom making it impossible to get the ball into the pocket without two hands. I bypass the pocket because the elastic on the legs works well and I just slip the ball under the short. It would be great to have the pocket opening on the top or angled on the side.
Even with the ball pocket, I give this item 5 stars.
I have a number of these skirts and I love the pocket in the back and the pocket in the waistband. The fabric and colors are really fun and hold up well (I have one in black that is over 2 years old and it still looks great).
Skirt stays in place on long runs (no chaffing) and while playing tennis. I can't say enough good things about the waist band.
Fit - I am 5'4" with athletic thighs and the 6 fits well.

Tennis skirt,ball pocket
What a great tennis skirt!!have quite few of them...would like to see the Tennis Ball pocket change direction!!
Now, the pocket has an opening at the bottom (upside down), when you try to put the ball in, the short comes up and it is really hard to use the pocket.
I would like to see the pocket opens from the top, that way I can put the ball in the pocket with out pulling the spandex (under shorts) with it.
The under shorts have the sticky elastic which helps the shorts to stay in place. When you try to slide the ball in the pocket, it pulls the shorts up. If we have the pocket flipped around, you can slide the tennis ball without pulling the under shorts.
Thanks Lulu, I will love this skirt even more!!!

I love this skirt for tennis. The length, flow, and spandex underneath are all great. I love how the spandex stays in place. I don't like how it wrinkles easily and a lot of the stitching came undone. I machine washed and hung to dry every time. But I must take into consideration the amount I wore this skirt. My team got it as a part of our uniform, along with the speed short(love!), and we rotated between the two with 3 matches per week september-early november. It was a lot of washing but I hoped that it would stay together better with the amount we paid for it

Cute enough to multi-task
I have this and 4 other Lululemon workout skirts and I love them all! Not only are they cute as all get out, but they wear well. The under shorts stay fairly well in place compared to other brands of workout skirts I own. I've taken to wearing these skirts out dancing in clubs because they pair well with a cute, dressy top and no one can tell the difference! The pocket in the back holds ID and money, the fabric wicks sweat and the undershorts are a bonus!

Great Tennis Skirt
I'm not much for running in skirts (prefer the groovy run shorts), but I did purchase this skirt to wear to tennis lessons and found it to be very comfortable on the court. There is a pocket on the shorts to hold tennis balls that is very handy. And the fit is quite flattering.

Bought on a whim; turned out to be PERFECT
I've now run 3 marathons (lots of halves laced in there too) and worn lululemon in all 3. Prior to the NYC marathon yesterday (11/4/13) I had worn well-broken in ensembles that had been on multiple long training runs and were great, but always had a little chafing. Y'know, I'm human, my thighs touch, my arms touch my ribcage when I run, et cetera. BodyGlide can only do so much after you have hit the mid-teen miles. For yesterday, I had committed the one of the ULTIMATE in marathon no-nos: I bought an entirely new outfit for the race. I had only tried on, not run in, this ensemble. And this ensemble included the Run Pace Setter skirt, black in size 10R. This was a foolish move, and it paid off. The skirt was amazing. Yes, I painted my inner thighs in BodyGlide, it's true, but I had not one whit of irritation, felt totally dry and non-sweaty and not going to lie, ALMOST FELT CUTE, even in the later miles. So, lulu, good job on this skirt. I had no waistband issues (maybe that only happens in patterns?). I was delighted with the length and size of the skirt. Once recovered, I am so psyched to run more in it!

They are perfect for my 1/2 marathons! No chafing at all!

Great Running Skirt
I own two of these skirts and have marathoned in them. Perfect for distance running. The shorties underneath prevent your legs from chafing, the skirt makes you look cute! The ruffles on the butt are just adorable!
Only beef would be that I would like the gel pockets to maybe be a snicker bigger, so that they may actually fit a gel. Otherwise, I'm super happy with my Pace Setters.
I'm a size 4, 5'6, 118lbs.

I'm leaving a review mostly for people like myself who worry about sizing. I'm 5'2, 128lbs, 28 inch waist and I ordered a Size 6. I found it to be pretty comfortable to run in. The pockets are pretty small so while the idea of them is pretty cool, the size of them limits practicality.
