Groovy Run Short *2-way Stretch
The Best Shorts
I always had trouble finding running shorts that didn't ride up; I would constantly be pulling my other ones down. I finally found these and I've never once had to touch them mid-run. They are so comfortable, the perfect length, and the pockets are great, I can keep my car key in one of the front pockets, clip my iPod nano in the other, and then put my Clif Shot Bloks in the zippered pocket in the back. They are absolutely the best!

Best All Purpose Shorts Available!
I absolutely love the groovy run shorts. From fit to function, Lulu keeps me coming back for more with their fabric design options each season.
I participate in the following athletic endeavors: crossfit, bootcamp and running. These shorts are very comfortable and effective for all three activities. Only nitpick is that you have to be careful if doing abmat sit-ups during a WOD as the zipper will cut into your lower back.

Not as good as speed short for crossfit
I love color and was told its like the speed short just longer. So I purchased because all the speed shorts were sold out in any other color except black. Overall a nice short. Great for running but not Crossfit. The length and lack of stretch due to the color makes it less stretchy. I would recommend for running but not weight lifting.

I love how these shorts fit true to size. I love the variety of colours available. That is where my love ends.
I purchased these in hopes of wearing them at the gym for my workouts. I love the fabric, fit, and colours but when I started my cardio warm-up they started to ride up after 2 minutes. After five minutes I couldn't take it anymore. My poor inner thighs were raw and red. Definitely not great for running.
I decided to try them out for my weight lifting another day, in hopes of salvaging my hard earned money by getting some use out of them. They continued to ride up, the sweat pooled and it was just simply uncomfortable.
I was very disappointed and don't think I will be buying any Lulu shorts again any time soon. I feel like the product description was false advertising to me.

These Shorts are GOLDEN
These shorts are great! I have 3 pairs. They are good for all activities. I've used them for running, hiking, mountain biking, cycling, crossfit and even yoga. Even better that I was able to buy my last pair on sale. I am 5'9 and weight 160lbs. I will never go back to using any other shorts.

I bought these shorts because they don't seem to make the Turbo shorts anymore. I bought the grey/tuxedo design. They're comfortable and I like the look of them. However, I miss the stretchy material that they make the black version in. I asked the salesperson and he informed me that the material used changes based on the design/pattern of the short. That's interesting to me.

FITS ONE SIZE SMALLER THAN OLD GROOVY SHORT
I have two pairs of groovy run shorts and I love them so I ordered a pair online without hesitation. My other shorts are size 4 but these are much smaller (more like size 2). I laid them flat and compared them to my other shorts and they are in fact smaller. Why are thses shorts suddenly fitting a size smaller? This makes me very scared to order from the website.

Run for miles in these
My second pair, by far the best running shorts ever.
Comfortable waist, nice flattering fit, not too short, no bunching of material at the waist, and a zip pocket at the back to store a key. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a stylish and comfy short that wasn't so short it barely covered my butt but not so long as to look "frumpy" and these are the perfect length. I ordered the black/twin stripe/mod dot and the yellow twin stripe sizzle/sizzle and found the fabric and fit to be comfortable. I do agree with a previous review that the white liner panties in the yellow shorts look bad when you bend over - probably should have gone with a beige/nude colour instead, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. I am sometimes a 4 and sometimes a 6 in Lulu but because of the tight fit issues other reviewers had, I ordered the 6. I found the 6 to be like a regular Lulu 6 and probably could have gotten the 4 instead, but the 6 is fine also because the style isn't supposed to look super snug. For reference, I am 5'4" and weigh 130 lbs with slim hips.

Look great till you bend over!
I bought these shorts in twisted sizzle (white and yellow stripes). The fit is great, they are super comfortable and I love the length. I purchased these for running but also for beach volleyball and was looking forward to the bright colours on the court! However, due to the light colour of the shorts and the white liner underneath, when i bend over it looks like I'm wearing a wicked pair of granny panties. Overall, I am a little disappointed I won't get to use them for my intended use but they still look great while running and everyday summer use :) I am 5'5", 140lbs and size 8 fit just right.
