Finally, Lululemon has put something on sale that I need to buy. The Cheek Warmer Short is now on sale from $68 down to $34 with free shipping.
First of all, these are more about function and fit than fashion. They are made of Polartec Power Stretch Pro fabric - feels like fleece - that is lightweight and moves with you. The shorts are designed to be layered over running tights. That way you have ultimate flexibility while still keeping your bits cozy warm. The wide elastic waistband will sit on top of your skin and not dig in.
One reviewer said:
These shorts are great, love the thick polartec material and the style is cute, but I ask that you consider adding a zipper.
Another reviewer loves the shorts but wishes for a more masculine design as he (as a male) wants to wear them over high run tights for a little coverage when going out for drinks after. He praises the fabric:
The Polartec fabric is the perfect extra layer when you sometimes want a little more modesty with your running outfit.
There are three colours to choose from: black, neutral blush, and inkwell. The black is only available in sizes 4 and 6. However, the blush and inkwell colourways have full stock. I am disappointed that these top out at a size 10, as I would be closer to a size 12. There are many gals on both ends of the spectrum that feel sizes out of much of Lululemon's clothing since size 0 and size 12 has been removed from many of the lines.
While I am not a runner, I would put these shorts to good use. I hate taking a shower at the pool after a swim; I would rather take a shower at home. I could just towel off and throw these shorts over my swimsuit to get home. The material would keep my delicate bits from getting cold while I wandered to my car and drove home. In addition, they provide good coverage (modesty) instead of just wandering home in my swimsuit.
I also think the Cheek Warmer Short would be a comfortable lounge short around the house. Curl up in a tank top and the shorts while watching a movie or reading a book.
The shorts are final sale.
