by michal29 I think I got a lemon?
I was excited to get some new speed shorts for fall, but are these the "new design"? I now notice that the models in the photos have their hands by their sides, covering where the shorts flare out. I wasn't anticipating any issues so I already took off the tag. Hopefully I can exchange these or return them for store credit or something.

Rated 2 out of 5 by luludiver PLEASE MAKE MORE SIZE 2 STYLES
i have a pair of these in the marbled multi-color pattern (I forget the name) and i ABSOLUTELY LOVE them!!! I wear them at least once a week and they don't look worn or faded or anything! I have size 2 and they are a bit big on the hips as i have very small hips, but otherwise they are perfect. They are flattering and don't look diaper-ish like many athletic shorts make me do. i just wish there were MORE PATTERNS IN SIZE 2. I have been waiting to buy another pair but i just can't find any size 2 in a pattern i like. Ive been to over 3 locations including constantly checking the website

I was so excited to buy these shorts in electric coral. I thought they would be worth the money and reliable. After only a couple wears and a couple washes. Little bits of the fabric are pulling up, like snags or something, but so far I have just worn them for running errands. They don't seem worth the money anymore as they are not reliable. I would not recommend buying these shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by runnergirl24 Love these - new colors please
Hi lululemon! I love the speed shorts and power y tops but would love some more of the 'bleached' colors or pastel colors including blues and pinks/coral . I have the beach blanket blue speed shorts and love them but haven't seen any like it in forever! They are so cute, fit perfectly and the pocket that fits an iphone is great. More consistency in sizing would be helpful too! Sometimes a 6 in shorts and other times an 8.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LuLuRunner1024 Love but.....
When looking for new running shorts after retiring some of my old favorites, by the recommendations of several of my teammates I decided to invest in a few pairs of speed shorts. After trying them on in the store, I was in between sizes and decided to size up since the Sales Girl told me that the inside drawstring would keep them up if the shorts stretched out with wear. Well sadly after only a few wears the solid black shorts are now too big and the drawstring doesn't seem to keep the shorts up as the Sales Girl said. I feel like the shorts are falling off if I do anything quicker than a slow jog. My patterned pair of speed shorts seem to do the same thing, but not as bad as the black. When I did run in the shorts for the first time I loved how light and breezy they felt while I was running. However, I am very sad now that I am left with several pairs of expensive shorts that I can't wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WODgirl Love them but they have changed!
Let me start by saying I live in Lulu and think they are worth every penny I have spent and would recommend their product over any other fitness brand. I have worn all things lulu for 8 years now and started my obsession with the speed short. Love these shorts for everything! However in the last year the shorts have changed shape. They are longer in the black but tighter around the waist and sometimes flare in the leg more. The patterns are the most inconsistent of all and it's a tad frustrating when I order online and every pair is different. A lot different! I feel like I have a pretty educated review considering I own over 15 pairs of these shorts in all colors and patterns. I also coach crossfit and have these discussions with other ladies who have similar complaints. I will continue to buy these shorts because they are amazing and just return the ones that don't fit right but lulu please listen to these reviews and try to standardize these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by michithewanderess Best shorts ever!
I absolutely LOVE these shorts, and can't wait to buy more!! (except I am not fond of the patterned ones and wish there were more solid colors). They fit me perfectly! I weight 112 and have skinny legs, so I am not sure how they fit someone with thicker thighs and a bigger bottom, but they are great for me. I have the black ones and the zipper in the back is reflective which I am really happy about for when I bike or run. They are short and flattering. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sarahl19 Bring back the old ones
The old speed shorts fit so much better. The new ones are longer in the back making it look less flattering, as well as flare out on the sides like a weird skirt which not only is unnecessary as they are already very breathable and vented shorts but also unflattering. And my quads are in quite muscular so the flaring out is likely a problem for those with thinner legs as well. The extra fabric is not really needed in my opinion. I love speed shorts, but will not be buying anymore with the new fit sadly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lsee Love the shorts for any activity: running, crossfit, casual wear! The only thing I don't like is the when the built-in liner is white. Any color would be better than white when it comes to athletic shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KKUZ MY FAVORITE SHORTS!
I now have 3 pairs of these. I hate running in anything else! I strongly recommend them to fellow runners!
FYI: I wear a 6 in lulu leggings, but prefer the 8 in the shorts so they are not snug on my thighs.
