Speed Short *4-way Stretch is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 695.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great and then not so great I've had these shorts for about a year(LOVE THEM) and I've washed them properly this whole time! Was at the gym and I noticed a hanging string so when I got home I took a closer look and a whole section of the seam was coming undone. :/ I'm too afraid to wear them now because one more wear/wash might cause a hole!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hated Shorts Before These! I NEVER EVER worked out in shorts before I bought some of the speed shorts! I love the 4 way stretch and that they are so comfortable. I have a bigger lower half and it's really nice that these have the drawstring. I am usually an 8 in crops for that tight fit and size up to a 10 for a looser fit in the shorts :). Don't change these ever lulu!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Go To Running Short Love these shorts! The liner is not too tight and doesn't dig into me. If I went down a size and wore them skin tight they did. I normally take a 4 but the 6 in these shorts fit me perfect. Love the lines and how it cuts up on the sides. The pocket in the back is handy. And they sit at a perfect height on my hips. They are very flattering to butt as well. The fabric is silky and soft and feel great against my skin. Almost as if I am not wearing anything. I would definitely recommend these shorts. I do wish they had more colors in stock in the popular colors. I was looking for the hot pink but ended up with all black. I read the reviews on here before I purchased them. I wasn't going to bother driving downtown to try them on but at the last minute out shopping decided to go try them on for myself. Glad I did!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but shrunk the first time I washed :( I LOVE these shorts I have many different pairs of them in different colors, and I have never had a problem with them before. However, the pair I bought most recently (olive green) shrunk so much the first time I washed them even though I washed them on cold by themselves and did not dry them, and now I can't even wear them because they are so tight :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizes have changed I have been a lover of these shorts for years and have had the same size each time until recently. I bought my usual size (6) and went home and was horrified how the new colors fit. The legs and booty were so tight and, just like everyone else thinks, the liner is cringe worthy. I went and exchanged them for a size up, and the next size up is way too big on me. I have to cinch the waist so much and my thighs are swimming in excess material. PLEASE go back to the way they used to fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay but.... These shorts are very comfy and usually good quality; however, I ordered them in a cobalt/light purple color and after one wash (BY ITSELF), the material became stained with a darker purple and the dye began to speck into a darker color. Quality is not good for this color, do not order to cobalt/light purple color. Very disappointing

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Miss the old material Please please bring back the 4" 4x4 Speed short and the old material!!! I alternate wearing 3 pairs of the 4" 4x4 almost everyday and wanted to buy another; however 2.5" was all that was available. The fit was not as comfortable with the new material and it feels so cheap. I really like to invest in Lululemon and have always been happy with the multiple purchases I've made. I'll be returning these shorts in hopes that the quality will be better in later designs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts, except... Overall, these shorts are great. I love the look of the shorts, length, fit, etc. BUT the liner is actually awful, it makes me look like I have a double butt and is very, very unflattering. The color selection and everything is wonderful, but I cringe every time I pay $60 for a pair of shorts and have to cut the liner out of them in order for them to be functional and stylish. Lulu, I love you, but PLEASE fix this liner problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect in and out of the gym! I love these shorts, especially in the lite blue color! I only warning I would give is when you do any leg centered workouts (i.e., bending over, lunging, squatting) the ventilation on the booty will get stretched out, and your butt might show. It's just skin after all, and the briefs underneath help you feel covered. Other than that, if you're looking for a lulu staple, these would be a great place to start!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from close to great I honestly do love these shorts, however, the liner is the only drawback. The liner is super tight and you can sometimes see the panty line through the shorts. So much so that my trainer asked why am I wearing granny panties. I have tried sizing up but they are bigger in waist and feel like they are falling down with intense training. Other than the liner, they are awesome and one of my favorites to wear. I do wish lululemon would do something about the liner!
