What The Sport Short 4.3 5 52 52
Best on the market! I live a very active lifestyle. I run often and also play volleyball. These shorts are the perfects shorts for both! I don't have to worry about the shorts falling down, and they stay in place! I would defiantly reccomend to a friend! April 24, 2015
Best shorts that have ever happened to me Usually I go for looser fitting shorts for running as I'm a little built a little thicker (size 6-8 but I've got thighs and a butt. I got a 6 in these) but I often have problems with them riding up in between my thighs and I'm constantly having to adjust them. Well I've only taken these out for about a 30 min run, I did not have to adjust them once. They truly stay in place. They hit at just the right spot on my thigh to not look dorky, but not make my legs be spilling out of them either. The fitted pockets on the legs are amazing. Big and tight enough to hold my iphone without me worrying about it getting lost. I will definitely be buying more pairs. One hundred percent worth it. April 17, 2015
please keep making these! I love the rise (waistband design doesn't bother me, because I wear a swiftly over. You can flip it over anyway if you really hate it.) Love the pockets, love that they don't ride up when I run. love the length, and that I don't get sausage-link legs. 5'8, 130Ibs, skinny torso but thick thighs. I took a 6. It fit perfectly.

Amazing shorts Like most of the reviewers I love these shorts. The one addition I would suggest is to have the normal back zipper pocket that come on most of the other lulu shorts (because I have used those to hold my phone). Other than that I love the shorts and all of the pockets (I just think it needs one more in the back)! April 13, 2015
Amazing Shorts I was a little apprehensive about purchasing a pair of short fitted shorts, because the Groove short just didn't work for me. But... these shorts are a game changer! The higher rise and the 4" inseam are great. I wore then during a cross fit class and everything stayed in place! April 11, 2015
BUY THEM NOW These are the greatest shorts of all time. I have them in every single color, that's how much I love them. They don't rid up like most compression shorts do and that's a huge winner for me when I'm running or doing crossfit. The waist band is a nice mid rise that's super flattering and the length of the shorts are perfect because they're not too long but don't show your butt either. Also, the fabric is very breathable and doesn't restrict me at all. I absolutely love them and they were worth every penny!! Great job on these ones Lulu!! For refrence, I am 5'3", 119 lbs, and a size 4 fit great!! April 2, 2015
PERFECT! (almost) I'm 5'4" and 140 lbs. Size 8. Not much of a butt NOR do I have large thighs, but I can't wear "traditional" running shorts because they ride up and bunch up at the crotch even though I know plenty of gals that have thighs larger than mine who don't have that problem. Go figure! So in the summer it's always a challenge to find good compression shorts that will suit my figure, taste, and will stay in place. THESE are the bomb! They are long enough to cover the rubbing part of my thighs, yet short enough to not look like a dork. They DO ride up when I first start to run, but as soon as I start to seat they stay put. I have run up to 10 miles in them with absolutely no chaffing or constantly pulling down. The only issue I have had is the same I have had with every single pair of shorts or skorts I have ever worn. They ride up when I do sprints for speed intervals. I'm okay with that though since they are short distances that will not irritate me at all. I love the the waist. Not too low, not too high. Not too tight. I carry weight in my middle so muffin tops are another issue I have to look out for. These are perfect! I hated spending so much money on a pair of shorts, but I bought two of them and they are worth every penny! Looking forward to running many more miles in these! March 25, 2015
Best shorts ever! These shorts are perfect. They're long enough that they don't ride up while running or working out at the gym, but short enough that they're still cute. The pockets on the side are great too, I put my phone in there while running and it didn't move at all. I wish there were more of the cute patterns in these! March 23, 2015
Great for yoga and spinning Super adorable and comfy fit me like a glove 5'7 132 lbs , no sheerness ,I ordered a size 6 March 21, 2015
not for me Firstly, I'm amazed these aren't see-through! Every bottom I've tried on (save for the wonder under pant and high times pant) has been see-through and no, it's not because I'm wearing the wrong size. I ordered these in 'harper blue' and the color is very pretty but with the black band they look a little too much like boxer briefs for my taste so I'm going to return them. March 18, 2015
