BEST SHORTS FOR YOUR BODY TYPE

Short season is here and the style options are almost endless… However, most of us just want to find the most flattering styles for our body shape. That’s why we’ve made this handy guide that will finally help you choose the best shorts for your body type!

 

HIGH RISE OR REGULAR RISE?

REGULAR RISE SHORTS look really good on flatter buttocks because they create the illusion of curves.

HIGH RISE SHORTS are ideal for women with curvy buttocks since they feel much more comfortable and they have a lengthening effect.

Of course, it’s up to you, but it’s always good to know that! PS: Pockets are also a key element when it comes to choosing a pair of shorts. If there’s too much space between your back pockets, your buttocks will look larger. No pockets at all? That’s ideal for curvy booties!

 

Now, take a look at our shopping guide!

 

MINI SHORTS

If you’re petite and want to look taller, go for shorter shorts! Showing a bit more skin will give the illusion of longer legs. You can also wear mini shorts if you’re tall, but keep in mind that they’ll look even shorter on you!

MID-THIGH SHORTS

Mid-thigh shorts are universally flattering. No matter the length of your legs, they’ll cover your upper inner thigh, an area that not everyone feels comfortable showing.

BERMUDA SHORTS

Bermudas are shorts that reach down almost to the knees. This summer, they’re back into fashion. We snap for patterned, waisted and denim models!

CAPRIS AND GAUCHOS

Capris look really good with a long shirt. As for gauchos, try them with a fitted top and tuck it in!

A MUST

Thigh friction - hilariously known as "chub rub" by many - is a problem for many women during the warm season. For more comfort, opt for a cyclist type model of shorts, but shorter. And leave the Spanx behind, we're looking for breathable and tight-fitting shorts that will offer you protection against chafing… and against the wind, if ever an incident à la Marilyn happens.
