Run: Speed Short *2-way Stretch
Please be consistent in size!
Love these shorts!!! However...they don't always fit the same. How does that happen??? I only gave 3 stars because of this one factor. I like my shorts roomy when I run so I buy a 6 but in some of these shorts especially the checkered ones they run much smaller. I have returned all the checkered shorts I've ever purchased for this reason. Please be consistent in sizing!!! I've heard this same complaint from friends as well.

Best Shorts I've Ever Worn
I train almost everyday and every time I do I wear these shorts, I have 3 pairs of different colors and I'm hoping to start a collection and get every color. I will never switch to another short, they're so comfy and fit great. they're a great length, not too long not too short, also very light. I use the back zipper to put my iphone in so i can listen to music. The zipper comes in handy for my keys and debit card as well. they're great to run in, i have never had a problem with them riding up. Love these shorts, a great buy

the most amazing shorts you'll ever buy
If you drive to running trail start points these are the shorts for you! The pocket in the back allows you to place a car key nicely and zip it shut so you don't need to worry about "darn, did I lose my key at the 10th km". It doesn't dig into your back at all when running.
The fit is perfection! Yes there is a built in liner -but if you're against those kinds of work out gear give these a try. They don't ride up at all ensuring that you focus on what you're doing.
Material is sweat wicking and not see through! Love love love it!
This short always comes in lots of colours. I think I might have 8 of them (and majority of them were bought on sale). I find that the bright obnoxious colours that may not do as well go on sale eventually.

beautiful baroque inkwell/inkwell/surge
I'm happy to report that the the "beautiful baroque inkwell/inkwell/surge" is back to the normal run speed short sizing that we know and love! After enduring a summer of run speed shorts with sizing that was a tad off and a seam that didn't stretch I was so happy to find that these fit like my old run speed shorts! FINALLY! This pattern and color is beyond gorgeous!

Best Shorts Ever
I must admit, I have always been a Lulu hater (mainly because I was jealous and couldn't afford the stuff), until my boyfriend bought a pair of these shorts for me. They are life-changing. I now have 6 pairs, all different colors. I work out in them, I lounge in them, I wish I could go to work in them.
They fit my body perfect and are super flattering. The material is super soft and the wide band around the waist makes it so they don't pinch. The drawstring and back pocket are pluses, along with the fact they make my butt look amazing. No longer a Lulu hater.

I love these shorts! They are the first short shorts that I've worn in a long time, and they look and feel amazing. First I was reluctant to buy them as they are very short indeed and I'm not used to showing that much leg. But they are flattering, very comfortable, and I'm not aware of wearing them during my run in hot weather. They have become my go-to shorts, and I live in them on the weekends when running, walking, hanging out at the beach, or just running errands.
It's also quite surprising how much stuff you can transport in them, as they have 3 pockets (some LL shorts have none or only one).
Definitely will buy more!!
I bought the black 4-way stetch version, and they fit very well and I find them TTS (all my LL bottoms are size 6). However, when I tried the black pair with fine white stripes, I needed to size up as they were too tight - I guess this is due to the fact that they were 2-way stretch only?

Well endowed ladies may not fit 2 way stretch
5'5", 135 lbs, 39 inch hip.
These fit perfectly in the size 6, so I was surprised when the 2 way stretch did not fit me in this size. They looked great on, but prevented me from squatting. I could not even make it to parallel. Also, they dug so much into my bum that there were obvious panty lines - or should I say bulges!
I ended up buying the size 8 because I really like the pattern, but they are just too large now. Thankfully all the speeds have a drawstring inside, which helps.
We need to be able to distinguish which designs are 4 and 2 way stretch.
If you have a larger rear, you may not be able to fit your actual size in the 2 way stretch. I wouldn't recommend sizing up unless you really want a particular pattern.

These are great shorts. I still love the previous fabric, it fits better. There are not a lot of choices for the styles online. They seem to sell out of sizes quickly.

Big size gap
I got these shorts in black and was a little disappointed. They are good quality but didn't work out because of size. I originally tried on a four (my usual size) and they were too snug in the back, so I went with a six. After trying them on at my house I realized how loose and unflattering the sixes were but unfortunately I had already removed the tag. There was a huge gap in between the two sizes but I guess that could also be the sizing of my body although I haven't had this problem before. I'm 5'5 128 lbs. I do like the shorts though and will probably try again in the future- hopefully the sizing is better.

Good Running Shorts
I own a couple pairs of these and what I have found out is that the patterned shorts are a different fabric and not as stretchy so I go to size 8. The solid shorts and more stretchy so I downsize to a 6. I like the solid better for running and the patterned ones better for my lifting days.
They are great shorts there is just a difference in fabric between pairs. I will definitely keep buying more.
