Hot Hitter Skort
I bought both the black and white to wear specifically for golf. Though I play tennis, I'm not sure if I'd wear these. I wore the white one to the driving range on a fairly hot day. The skirt is billowy so each time there was a strong breeze, I felt the whole skort lift. I have no idea if I flashed the person in the next stall! I realize that there's built-in liner shorts but the white fabric isn't exactly opaque. For that reason, I doubt I'd wear these for tennis?or golf on a breezy day. The black skort I wouldn't hesitate for either activities since the liner is opaque. Another reason I gave it 4-stars is due to the waistband. It's great that it's wide but you can see the "bumps" of the band when wearing a fitted tank. (Trust me, you will try to wear a fitted top over this in order to take down the billowy factor.) I found a compromise when I paired them with In A Flash Singlet. Other than the two grievances mentioned, the skort is lightweight and comfortable, plus the grips at the hem are strong. I am also huge fan of its sweat wicking abilities!

Lightweight & Perfect for everyday wear!!
I am so happy to have found this skort! It is wide and poofy but with a tighter tank top it looks cute. Perfect for the summer with a cute pair of sandals. I was hoping to purchase in white too but of course, sold out.
For reference, I am 5'0", 125lbs, and a size 6.

A little goofy
I purchased this skort after reading so many good reviews! I was pretty disappointed in the design. I'm 5'5 130 and they look like bloomers. I'm a huge fan of the Pace Setter skirts and wear them every other say and had the same hopes for this skort. I was very let down. too much fabric and would have made a way cuter skirt than skort.

LOVE LOVE LOVE~
Im not sure why people are so unhappy with these.. they are absolutely adorable! Super light and fit amazing! The waistband is great. Ordered these in black and just placed an order for white? I don't even play tennis but these are great to wear to the beach, pool?. anywhere actually! Get a pair while you can!

Not just for tennis
Absolutely love these shorts. I initially looked at them but figured they would make me look big, I'm 5"5 135lbs, but the sales girl suggested and I reluctantly tried them on....I instantly loved the way they look. I don't play tennis but like to wear shorts around the house - these are adorable and comfy! Since the shorts are light and some what flowly it looks best with a tight tank.

Good on the right figure
I like this item in black. It worked well with a cropped military inspired jacket and casual sneakers. The wide waistband is slimming. It hits my legs at the right place and is flattering. Good piece to style with casual non-athletic wear.

made hips look huge
These shorts looked great on the hanger but just were not flattering on my body. I'm 5'5' 115-120lbs, thin but curvy/hourglass shaped. These made my hips look huge! I wear a 4 in wunder unders and a 6 in everything else. The 6 fit fine but just did not look good. I love the idea but there was way too much fabric there.

Very flattering on me. Want more colors!
I bought size 4 as usual and white color of this skirt and it looks very nice on me. I originally worried about the pockets as they look very floppy and going to bounce around with balls in there once you run. But they actually stayed still and didn't bother me at all! It's so cute that it would be great just to wear as a mini skirt outside of the courts! And it's extra secure so you won't worry about unwanted exposure. Size 4 for me in this skirt is a little loose but very comfortable. I wish they have more colors other than these 3. White is really easy to get dirty and black is boring. The floral one is too exaggerated. I wish they have more pure colors or less vibrant floral colors, as they are already big in shape.
Oh and the pockets, Lulu please try to make some tight pockets around thighs for tennis. I had some running shorts from last year that have square pockets on the sides, and they are perfect for holding tennis balls! The side pocket for the pace maker shorts with pleats at the back is too small for putting the ball in.

Skirt without worry
I live in a gulf coast town. This means it's hot, humid, and often windy. These are a godsend!
They are so beautiful and flowy that you can dress them up as shorts or a skirt. I can wear flats, flip flops, or wedges with them. Anything goes! Around here it's imperative to find an outfit that can go from beach day, to dinner at the local sand bar. This does the trick wonderfully.
The lining doesn't dig in like, I think, the pace setter lining often does.
It fits TTS with a little wiggle room (I'm 5'8 140lb, size 6. I bought a size 6 in the white).
The white, even with how thin and breathable it is, isn't very sheer. I wore a very BOLD colored bikini bottom underneath and you couldn't tell.
It's so darn cute that the only thing I haven't tested yet is sweat marks. (I run, cycle, lift, instruct multiple group fitness classes, triathlon train, etc) That will be next on my list; however it's so adorable that, even if I can't work out in it, I'm a happy buyer.
well done on the casual wear, lulu. I'm impressed with this spring line-up. Make more colors!

LOVE THIS SKIRT!
I absolutely LOVE this skirt. I wear a 6 in other Lulu skirts and this also fit in a 6. The fabric is amazing in the Florida heat and the pockets are great! Finally a great pocket in a tennis skirt. I must have this in other colors!
