Getting into our run groove is easy when we've got the right gear.
why we made this
We designed this short specifically for women like us with athletic legs and thighs: cut generously in the leg to allow for maximum moveability. We made it out of lightweight, wicking Swift fabric so we can work up a sweat without worrying about catching a chill.
cut generously in the leg to allow for maximum moveability
wide, flat Luxtreme waistband is wide by design to sit smoothly on your waist
the continuous drawcord won't come out in the wash
moisture-wicking fabrics pull sweat away from your body
stow your stuff in the back zipper pocket and two waistband pockets
chafe-resistant flat seams won't rub you the wrong way
stretchy, built-in liner is configured to stay put
one pair fits great second pair not so great...
I bought these in black and the fit is fantastic and true to size. I bought a second pair in the groovy stripe nimbus vertical/nimbus/black and they fit however the material has no stretch at all. It makes lunges and squats etc a bit difficult. I am returning the second pair.

Great pattern, runs small
I'm a Turbo Run Short junkie and got these because of the color pattern. I got a 10 which I get in Turbos and expected them to also be a bit loose on me. They are more snug than I'd prefer. Next time, I'd size up to a 12. I'm 5'9, athletic build, muscular legs, 148lbs.

love hate relationship
I saw these shorts online and fell in love. They looked so comfortable and very close to the Turbo Run Shorts (which are sadly no longer available) I tried them on in store and loved how comfortable they were. I wear a size 8 because of my thicker, muscular thighs and they fit everywhere but the crotch. I couldn't even fit my legs through the size 6 either. I tried on the black pair and my bright blue undies were still see-through. I was fairly disappointed as I cannot find shorts for running anymore. Lulu! Please bring back the Turbo Run Shorts!

I am 5'8", 138 lbs and usually wear a size 6 in Lululemon (a size 4/6 in other brands). My measurements are 34D, 28" waist and 36" hips.
I purchased these in a size 6 and they fit just slightly small/tight. The elastic digs a bit.
I can still wear them and they are really cute. They will definitely stay in place!
They are well made and the fabric is great - very light.

These Shorts Blew My Mind!
I bought these shorts a couple of weeks ago when I went shopping with my friends. I had never bought anything from Lululemon and I heard a lot of good things about these shorts.
These shorts are magical (not literally, but figuritvely [just checking])! I tried them on in the store, and it felt like I wasn't wearing anything (quite seriously). These shorts are the best investment I made to myself (and one of few!).
These shorts are lightweight, durable, comfortable, cute, and come in a lot of cool colours.

I am 6 ft. tall, and unfortunately even though these are advertised as being "so much longer" than traditional running shorts (all of which average an inseam of 2.5"-3", which is a joke) these are still pretty darn short. I understand I have longer legs than most, but I have yet to find a pair of shorts that I actually feel comfortable wearing out in public. I am by no means heavy, but also by no means do I have perfect legs. I bought these from the WMTM section so cannot return them. I will use them for lounging around the house and "motivation" shorts, but I'm sad I won't ever get to use them for their intended purpose of running.
They also give me a muffin top as they are low-rise, and were a bit snug around the thigh (I have muscular legs but nothing crazy). Again, I recognize that my complaints have to do with my build/body type and are not necessarily reflective on Lululemon, but it is frustrating trying to find workout clothes that fit certain body types that are often forgotten about. I had higher hopes for the fit and length of these shorts. I may have to give up on finding shorts all together and just stick with crops.

I really do love these shorts! They are perfect for a run or for teaching my group fitness classes! They are adorable, yet functional. I am so pleased with the length. I like the way the speed shorts feel, but they are just too short for me to feel comfortable in. The Groovy short is perfection all around! I loved my first pair so much, I immediately bought a second pair! Please keep these and make more!

New White/Grey Strip Short Fabric & Fit
I went into my local Lulu store yesterday to find a new pair of running shorts, and decided to try on the new pattern (white with grey stripes) shorts. I'm normally a 6 in Lulu shorts, and sometimes wear a 4/6 in the luon stretch capris depending on the fit. I do have stronger/bigger thighs as a runner/crossfitter, but I was disappointed. While the black, 4-way stretch fabric shorts fit (almost large) in a 6, I couldn't even get the new white/grey stripe patterned short over my thighs. I know its partially because the fabric doesn't give at all, but I really think they might be cut smaller, so size up, ladies, and know the fabric won't stretch!

these shorts have a weird fit. I am 5'1" about 124 lbs and generally a size 4. These shorts have a weird flap of fabric underneath running down the outside of the outer thighs which is uncomfortable and adds bulk and lines. It's just an odd fit, somewhere between a spandex compression short and a running short but not the best of either. Disappointing.

I got these in the mail yesterday and immediately loved the colors (the coral ones). I wore them today for a 12 mile run! They were great! No chafing, rubbing or riding up! And I love the longer length! For reference, I am 5'4", approx. 135 pounds and an 8 fits perfect! I am going to have to order more!
