Run Times Short *Block-It Pocket
LOVE these shorts
When I looked at these, I was kind of worried about how I would like them. I am a long distance runner and I have muscular thighs, so I was worried that either they would ride up majorly or my thighs would be cuffed raw. Never had a huge issue with riding up, sure every once in a while I have to pull the leg down a bit, but hardly anything I have an issue with. They quickly became my favourite running bottoms (being canadian, I can't always wear them due to weather... it's depressing really, pants kind of suck lol).
I like the length, I LOVE the liner, they beat real underwear any day. Once I start running, I don't notice them at all. The only dislike I have is the block it pocket, it sort of impeded the shorts ability to wick sweat in that area... so it got uncomfortable at times, especially when wearing a hydration wear belt or something... bought another pair, just don't have the block it pocket.
A note: These are the perfect shorts for wearing in hot weather or wearing to the beach, they are so stretchy and light, you hardly notice them, but they cover you up for modesty and sun protection,

These shorts are very soft and so comfortable. They don't ride up and feel like you're wearing nothing. The length is a little longer which I appreciate. I already want to buy another pair! Fit tts, I wear a 6 in all lulu bottoms (5'5 130lbs) and these fit wonderful.

Fit=Amazing, Quality= Disappointing
I have loved Lululemon for a long time, and I fell in love with the fit of these shorts, but similar to a few other reviews, the back started to pill very quickly.
I always wash according to lulu's instructions and these just haven't help up well. The fit is great, but the quality is very disappointing, especially at the price tag. I can hardly even wear them (after just a few wears) due to the horrible pilling. It is not a good look, and of course, I can't return them.

These shorts are full coverage for dancing and running. I love the fit and length of the shorts. I sometimes work long days teaching dance and the built-in liner can cause irritation to my inner thighs. (This only happened once though). Other than that, the shorts are amazing and I wear them all the time!!

They were too small and a bit uncomfortable, but I tried them anyways and now stuck with them since I've worn them. I bought they'd stretch and break in but they haven't at all.

This shorts is just perfect. Perfect length and rise, the waistband is not too tight and doesn't creat a love handle. I've also tried on another style of LULU's shorts and this one is the best. Very comfortable and flattering. I'm 5'4'', 115 db and size 4 fits perfect.

Kind of Bummed
When I saw this online I absolutely fell in love, the shorts looked so flattering and comfortable. I also had some friends with the same shorts and they loved them as well. When I finally got one, I was bummed that they actually ran a size too small ( I'm usually a 6, so that's the size I ordered), unless the compression short is the look that's being sought after. I ended up keeping them anyway and began doing my normal workout routines. After one yoga class and hiking 3,400 ft the hem let loose. I'm really bummed that something so expensive was of such poor craftsmanship.

Go up a size?
These sounded promising for a 5'11" 140lb tall gal who is looking for a multifunctional short-hike, run, gym, errands after, something that is a little longer on the inseam so I'd fell decent going from a run to the grocery store. Trying them on the fit looked good, not that usual weird flare at the hip/side leg so many running shorts have. But the functionality was off. The inner short seemed a size or 2 smaller than the outer short, resulting in uncomfortable creep, tightness around the leg and bum, constantly having to pull it down. I couldn't wait to get them off. The inseam also is shorter than 4", I measured and it's 3 3/4". Perhaps a 6 would be better but I've worn them once and it doesn't appear the return policy will allow a worn item to be exchanged. Major bummer for my first LLL purchase.

Gets clammy at the back
I wanted a simple black shorts for running, but they only had this model with the block-it pocket feature at the time. I occasionally carry a 5-dollar note in my back pocket, so I thought I'd give it a try.
The pocket is wide and big, which is usually a good thing, but turns out not so much for these shorts...
The fabric used at the small of your back is not breathable (naturally!), and it gets very clammy and damp when worn on a warm day for running, esp. long runs.
I'm not a big sweater, but after one wear it becomes smelly which doesn't happen with my other running shorts.
Perhaps not an issue when working out at the gym, but would not recommend it to my running friends.
