a lightweight, sweat-wicking, four-way stretch fabric that feels cool and comfortable, keeping us moving in our hottest workouts
strong and light, Swift fabric is woven to stand up to whatever we throw at it - we love this technical fabric for its no-bulk, no-nonsense performance
why we made this
We made this running skirt with two-way stretch fabric and built-in shorts so you can feel confident no matter how large you leap. The shorts have silicone grip on the hem so they don't roll up mid-stride.

Adorable but falling apart after 1 wash
This skirt is so, so cute! I love the ruffles on the back and it is really comfortable to wear. I wore it one time (purchased it last week) and just put it in the wash this morning. I washed it with all Lulu clothing in cold water and when I went to put it on my drying rack, I noticed that tons of threads are coming loose from the waistband and the shorts. Very, very disappointing - especially after only 1 wear (just running errands) and 1 wash. I would love to recommend this skirt to a friend but wouldn't feel right doing so - especially for the price!

LOVE the Bleached Coral/Pink Colour
For reference I am 130lbs 5'4" and got a size 4 - fits perfect - I had tried on 6 in this style before but found them a bit generous and the shorts felt loose. The size 4 sits flat against my abs - not so tight that its shows outline of pelvic bone. When working out they will loosen a bit. Just have to watch that the top layer of ruffles doesn't bunch upwards if it is too tight. I found the fabric to be stiffer than the 4 way stretch (swift ultra fabric) - but pleats seem to be crisper. I absolutely LOVE the colour - so summery!

Love the Pace Setter!
I love the Pace Setter and actually have four of them. I am a runner and have run several marathons in the Pace Setter. I wish you would flip the tennis ball pocket (and perhaps make it a little larger) so it would hold more gels and/or my cell phone. I am a big fan of the 4-way stretch. The colors and patterns are very fun. The Pace Setter holds up well in the wash. I will never wear running shorts again! I am 5'3 and weigh 120 pounds and the 4 fits well.

I have 4 of these pacesetter skirts, 3 in regular and 1 in tall. They are super versatile! I started buying them for golf, they look amazing and I get compliments all the time. Now I also wear them to the gym for body pump, body combat and even spinning classes. I even wear it casually sometimes during the summer with a T-Shirt. The shorts underneath is perfect so I can move however I want.

It last 2 washes
I was super excited about this skirt, it is super cute but mine lasted only two washes. I always follow the wash instruction and wash just exercise clothes together on delicate cycle, without softener, no dryer, but somehow it is ruined :( My white one got some mud stain from train run, I thought it was weird...

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!!!
