Product Review: Lululemon Speed Short

I recently have fallen in love with lululemon.  For a long time, I really didn't understand the hype and perhaps didn't want to.  But my friend Sheri Matthews (an amazingly beautiful runner/cyclist inside and out) is an ambassador for the La Jolla, CA store and is always posting pics in her cute outfits and I decided to give it a shot.    If it's good for Sheri, it's good for me ;-)

I recently went in looking for shorts and I really fell in love with these.  The comfort level is through the roof!  

Love them!  I love this style of waistband in running shorts and can't go back to the traditional elastic style.  Plus drawstrings always drive me crazy!

I took them out on a ten mile run and they performed beautifully! 
They also match the orange accent of my shoes!  Blue and Orange is a popular color combo right now!

I love the style and fit!
The only two downsides: 
Number One: that they were out of my size in everything but black or floral in store and out of my size in everything but black, orange and floral online when I ordered.   My only thought is they are about to introduce more colors? (hopeful!!!) 
Number Two: the little loop on the back pocket zipper would move and touch my back upon occasion when I was running in just my sports bra.  I thought it was a bug!  I solved this by tucking it into the pocket.

I will definitely be buying another pair!


  1. I've heard nothing but great things about Lulu, but the prices always deter me.

  2. I agree with Jamie above- They seem so pricy! But, I did buy a pair to give them a shot, as I need some more running shorts, I mostly have capris, and need something better for this hot weather we have been experiencing. I haven't received them yet, but they should be coming in the mail early next week :) I can't wait to try them out! Thank you for your detailed review. I'll let you know what I think soon!
