Great beach shorts!I bought these in black on WMTM last season. I almost always wear board shorts to the beach so I had to give these a try. I love the quick-dry outer material but find the waistband and liner take a while to dry. I appreciate that the liner is sewn inside out so that the stitching does not chafe. I love that these black bottoms can be paired with any of my swim tops but I do wish that more colour options had been available in my size as I had looked high and low for the gradient pattern in my size.
Overall I quite like these swim shorts but I would likely only purchase Lululemon board shorts again if they came in a longer length such as an H2O version of the similar Times short, or a long Bermuda style board short similar to the Men's style.

Lovely fit but back luckI bought these not too long ago because I love the Speed Short (They are life changing, in my opinion. They are the most flattering and functional shorts I have ever seen) but mine developed a rip at the seam near the top band of the short. Unlikely I would have snagged it on something because I always wear a shirt or tank that covers the top band but I'm disappointed! Was expecting higher quality from a product I have loved for so long!

Great fit but the colour ran everywhereI purchased a pair of these shorts at the beginning of the season in bright pink. The fit and athletic functionality while wearing them is excellent - probably my fave of all my lulu shorts I’ve ever owned! Sadly however, the pink colour ran everywhere - staining white bikini bottoms, as well as everything the shorts were washed with. I washed these in cold water, separate, with tide detergent, as I usually do with my regular lulus. Did not place in dryer. I’ve only washed these twice, and the problem seemed to get worse the second wash. The first wash I assumed was perhaps normal, but the second wash, the colour bled to the point of the colour on the shorts themselves being a bit streaky. Totally love these shorts otherwise, but am so disappointed this happened, especially seeing as these shorts are made for the water?! Wondering if anyone else has had this problem?

I use these shorts for SUP & Acro on the beach
Personally wish they came in a longer inseam (like 4" instead of 2&1/2")

LOVE these shorts!!I wasn't quite sure if they would be as great as I was hoping - fabric - fit - overall look on me - But I seriously Love them & can't wait to get out Stand Up Paddleboarding in them - I gave them a 5/5 because I will be living in them this Summer (just enough cover over bikini bottoms without being too much) Total Score on this item lulu designers :) Oh & the sizing was perfect/true to size as well*
