Heat It Up Short
Good shorts, definitely for the price
To be honest, the price is what reeled me in. I bought "some like it hot" shorts last year and hated them! These shorts are actually smaller, but so cute! I can't judge these on performance but I can on style, fit and quality. First off, I got my normal size 6 (I'm 5'8 about 134 with most my weight being carried in the lower tummy, booty/hips area) If I wanted, I think the 8's would have stayed on fine, but the 6 worked great. The drawstring came tied so all I did was slide them on and undo the string and let my body take the stretchy waist where it needed to go and they were great - so TTS. Second they're so cute. I instantly sent a picture to my boyfriend because I felt so good in them :p They're comfortable and nice colours (I bought three ; black, black/faded zip , and black/pop orange) I personally wouldnt wear these out in public yet at the gym, but great for beach, at home practice, and weirdly enough I think I'm going to start wearing a pair to bed as I don't like feeling too restricted and these will be great, like having nothing on.

perfect for hot yoga!
I'm really not sure why people so displeased with these shorts- you see exactly how small they are in pictures and at stores! They're perfect for my hot yoga class- no slippage, no bunching, keeps everything contained, and frankly in a room that hot I wouldn't want to be too covered up.

Pretty good shorts for any workout
Regardless of reviews I got these shorts in black in the size I always get things, 4. They fit me perfectly, and the crotch was a good size. Yes it was small but I was still fully covered through all my workouts (mostly cardio, some yoga). The only thing I didn't like is that it took me a while to get used to them on me. At first I thought they made my thighs look huge, but after a day it didn't bother me anymore. Just for size reference I have a curvy/slim figure, 5ft. 4 and 110 lbs. I will definitely buy more of these shorts!

Great shorts as Bikini Bottom
These are great little shorts but like others have said I would personally never wear these to Yoga! I also do not do hot yoga. I would get laughed out of my gym if I wore these to a regular class and am not comfortable showing that much skin. I will wear as a swim bottom with the matching Heat it Up Bra. As a bikini bottom they are more on the conservative side but are very cute. I am a 4 in almost everything Lulu however I sized up to a 6 in these shorts as well as the bra. Both sizes were a similar fit but the 6 was more comfortable. The base of the butt part on the 4 rode up just a little. I was almost busting out of the size 4 bra.
I like the bright colors but found that the black with the colors on the shorts looked best on me. I bought black with the pop orange accents.
I found that these fit very nicely and are flattering on me with no muffin top. I'm 115 lbs, 5'4" and a 32B.

Great but not for yoga
I knew these were not going to be flattering on my big bum and thighs, but I couldnt resist the WMTM price. That said, they will be awesome for surfing as regular bikini bottoms usually end up around my ankles - not super cute or safe! The gusset coverage is fine for that, but wearing these to any type of yoga would cause some major over-exposure.

not really shorts....
I wouldn't really say these are shorts. Even for short-shorts they are extremely skimpily itty bitty. They look more like swim bottoms (like how they are pictured). I'd recommend this for at-home practice, but I personally would not flaunt these in public since there's a bit chance of crotch exposure! They are really comfy, stretchy, and soft though!

Perfect....for the beach!
Let me just start by saying that I would NEVER wear these shorts to yoga. There is simply not enough coverage in the crotch. I'd get kicked out of class!!! That being said, they are PERFECT as bikini bottoms! I bought two pairs with the matching sports bra and it looks just like a bikini! When worn as a bikini bottom, these shorts could even be considered "modest" because they fit like boy shorts. I'm glad I saw them on sale and took a chance!
Fits tts...I'm a size 4, athletic build, 125 lbs and 5'8" and the four fits perfectly without any awkward muffin top issues.

Not enough fabric on the crotch area
This shorts fit perfectly except, there is simply just not enough fabric on the crotch area. I was extremely conscious and not being able to do full pose of STANDING SEPARATE LEG STRETCHING POSE, STANDING BOW PULLING POSE, HEAD TO KNEE POSE AND STRETCHING POSE during my Bikram practice because I knew that my crotch was showing. Besides that, this pants and top are great. It gives me a great figure and the top is very flattering. I wanted to buy a second outfit but with this "tiny" issue I guess I wont be able to. Sad to give it a 1 star since I waisted $100!

I actually bought these as a swimsuit bottom and they are great. Comfortable with no butt ride up and no high cut hips which I hate.
They do run small though. I usually wear a 6 in lulu bottoms but I got these in an 8. Sucks that I paid full price and they are now on WMTM for half the price :(
