The Best Shorts for Your Body
Who wears short shorts? That depends on whom you ask. It goes without saying that when it comes to picking out a style of shorts, you can't take a one-size-fits-all approach. The secret is to know what's the most flattering based on your body type. Short shorts are ideal for petite women, as they add length to legs. The shorter the shorts, the longer the legs. For tall, lanky women, knee length shorts are a great option for showing off shapeliness. If you're worried about this style making your legs look shorter, don a pair of wedges or heels to balance out the look. If you're one of those gals who are wider on the bottom, look for styles that cut across the mid-thigh. The most flattering styles are cuffed or pleated. Mid-length shorts are also known as walking shorts, golf shorts, or classic shorts.
