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're proud of our athletic quads - we worked hard for them! We made these shorts out of stretchy, sweat-wicking fabric with plenty of room for our muscles. With details like a secure leg pocket and lightweight liner, they help us reach our runner's high time and time again.
fabric + features
lightweight, sweat-wicking Swift fabric has two-way stretch to move with you
secure, zippered leg pocket to stash your essentials
wide elastic waistband won't dig in and has a continuous drawcord that's easy to cinch mid-stride
ultra light liner keeps you covered and helps your shorts stay put
shaped hem and athletic cut has plenty of room for muscular legs to move freely
I'm 5'0" tall and weigh 160 lbs. I may sound "big"; but I have thick, muscular legs and arms, a chunky waist (working on that) and big bust. I wear most athletic clothing brands' shorts in a size M, or L (will only wear this size if there's a drawstring). I ordered these shorts in the color Angel Blue, size 10. The fit was good, but without wearing a fuel belt to hold them up better, they did start to ride down my waist during my first run in them. I wanted to cinch the drawstring up tighter, but was afraid I might snap it or knot it in a way that couldn't be undone. The wide waist band is comfy and the shorts didn't ride up very much or chafe. The zip pocket on the leg is really tiny, but I run 8+ miles so I always have my fuel belt on that can store anything I need to bring.

As an avid crossfitter, these shorts come second best to the speed shorts. Very comfortable, flattering, and doesn't ride up with workouts or squats. I've gotten so many compliments on these shorts. The space cadet color is very flattering. Love the small side pocket for keys or cards.

My new favorite!
Okay, so let me first start off by saying I've always been a Speed Shorts fan. I've gone a little speed shorts crazy buying the new patterns with Summer coming. I decided to buy these since I really liked the new Pretty Purple color. I'm in trouble now. These are my new favorite shorts. I love the length! After trying these on I put on my speed shorts and the speeds looked and felt waaaaay too short. Now I have all these speed shorts with tags on them that I didn't get a chance to even wear. O'well! I love these. Feel great on too. I read reviews and I was going to get a 6 because I'm 5'6 132lbs. I have very skinny legs so I decided to go with a 4 because I was worried they would be too baggy and annoying when I run. For reference I usually wear between a 6-8 in Speed Shorts. They fit perfect! I love how the waistband hides my "muffin top". Just all around my new favorite shorts. Will be buying more!

I have these shorts in a few colors - and I like the shorts. However, I just ordered them in the purple color and received them yesterday in the mail. The panty liner in the shorts is sewn on BACKWARDS - so that the butt/rear area is in the front of the shorts?.they're unwearable and it's obviously a malfunction of product inspection on the company's behalf. This is the third time in the last few months that I've received poorly made or unwearable merchandise. But what really peeves me is that when I ask for assistance from customer service they tell me to visit my local store. Which is a 20 minute drive where I also have to pay to park. OR they can process a return via mail onto a gift card - (this entails me printing a label which I have no printer and have to go to a FexEx store and pay money to print) and then go to a post office. All because the company has made a poor product. They should take a lesson from Zappos and learn proper customer service.

favorite running shorts yet!
I have a very short torso with large hips, a small waist, and looong legs thus making running shorts impossible to find. Nike, underarmor, addidas...everything rides up after two strides and I am constantly tugging my shorts down my entire run...until I tried these babies on!! I am 128lbs 5'7'' and a size 6 was perfect. Lululemon saved the day yet again!
These shorts have a thick waist band that really grips your hips, an extremely soft liner that annihilates all possibilities of wedgies, and breathable fabric that keeps you cool down under. And as the cherry on top of the sundae... they are also the perfect length!
Tracker Short II there will be more of you in my life soon!

Great shorts for athletic body type
These shorts have changed my life! I have over 5 pairs of these and their original version from last season and I will not wear anything else. I have an hourglass frame but fit with very little fat on my legs but all of lululemons other shorts made me uncomfortable to wear in public post workout because of how tight and short they are. These shorts don't suffocate your waistline or legs... you can wear them to the store afterwards, to pick up your kids, etc without being inappropriate. Plus they are extremely comfortable to wear and don't creep in places they shouldn't during a hard workout.
Try this pair out and I swear, you will not be disappointed!!! I look almost every Tuesday for the new colors that they release because I love them so much!
Compared to the Nike shorts that everyone has too, these are MUCH more comfortable. Spend the extra money and buy these over all other options!

I got these shorts yesterday and ran in them last night. So comfty! They dont ride up and the band is really comfortable. I have only worn the run speed shorts, and wanted something a little different and longer. These were perfect, not too long and not too short. I am about 5'7 135lbs and i wear a 6. highly recommend these!

Super-flattering on hourglass figures
I love these shorts! They're extremely flattering on my figure (132 lbs, 5'4") and are very comfortable just lounging around and on runs. Also, the fabric feels great.

Perfect Running Shorts!
I love my Tracker shorts! I bought them in the light blue color and they're sooo pretty on. They don't balloon up at all, have plenty of room in the leg, and the waistband is nice and thick so it doesn't dig in at all, they're so comfortable. As usual, the detailing is so pretty, they're definitely my favorite LuLu shorts I've tried on so far, I hope they keep making them in bright summer colors!

Not too happy
I love the colors of these shorts more than the Groovy run so I decided to order two pairs of these. Running in them was great until I stopped and the waistband has something poking out of it that I can't find and is extremely itchy. Pretty disappointed.
