Run: Speed Short *2-way Stretch
I am a HUGE fan of Speeds; over the past year alone I have acquired over a dozen pair. Bought my usual size 6 in the super-cute raspberry gingham last fall. When it finally got warm enough to wear them running, however, there was some MAJOR chafing along the left inseam of the shorts-- I suspect it is a stitching flaw in that particular area b/c they fit fine and there was no problem anywhere else. However, since it is well past the return date I am stuck with them. I just hope I don't run into the same problem with the purple ones I ordered. (That being said, the review really applies mostly to lulu's super-restrictive return policy).

I just ordered the cadet speeds in my normal size and the fit is perfect but they are SOOO long. I have lavender dusk, chevron dot and they are perfect....these look more like turbos! I returned and really hope they stop making them so long! Saw from several people the light flare had a terrible fit as well.

I bought these shorts (in lavender dusk) a couple weeks ago after trying to decide between these and the 4-way stretch ones in petal pop multi. I liked how they fit, and there was no issue with the black insert (like others have mentioned for the pink ones), however once I went to the gym on the elliptical they started riding up in the front and back. These short are already pretty short, but this was almost underwear-like!
So yes, I would recommend them because they were super comfy, just be warned that they do hike up a little.

See through black underwear!
Run speed shorts are my FAVORITE. The ping zing color is fabulous; however, they are made with a black liner and are SO seethrough! Makes you look like you have black grannie panties on...visible from very far away!!! Unfortunately the picture online (from behind) is NOT the way these shorts look like in person. I will be returning these unfortunately :(

Apex stripe zing pink shorts
This review is specifically for the striped zing pink speed shorts.
If you like bright colors it doesn't get any brighter than this! They are a great safety precaution when running on the side of the road. I personally LOVE the color. I got a size 6 which is what I normally wear and they fit perfectly. The reason that I give these shorts, in this specific color 3 stars is because they have a black built-in liner that's visible thru the shorts while wearing them!!! Why would you do this Lulu? I wrote this review just so that others know what to expect when ordering them online but it doesn't mean that they're going back! I'm loving the color and I'll just wear tops that will hide the problem.

Best running shorts
I love these shorts. I Have them in many colors and patterns. I am always a size 6. I never have an issue with sizing or chafing. They are extremely comfortable, functional and make my legs look great. My husband loves them. He says they are so flattering, unlike Nike, which look like a diaper.

Love me some speed shorts!!
I absolutely adore these shorts, I have so many I can't even count! The only thing is I wish their sizes would be more true to size. Sometimes I am a 6 sometimes an 8. Just depends on the material, you have to try them on first!!!

These shorts are the most popular item I buy. I'm so glad to see that they are now labeled 2-way & 4-way stretch. I would love to see a length of 3 inches. 2 1/2 inches is a little too short but 4 inches is too long. Also, I would love to see more fun colors & patterns.

Chafing every single time!!
I purchased these shorts because they were on sale. I love the colour and they were comfy to wear. When using these for my circuit workouts they were wonderful, but for running? I chafed every single time I tried to wear these! Chafing hurts and burns! The fabric just irritated my skin unlike other shorts lulu makes. If you have a complete thigh gap I recommend these, but if you are muscular like myself I don't.
