Women with curvaceous hips and thighs are celebrated for their figures and look amazing in a variety of dresses, skirts, and pants. But it can be challenging to find shorts styles that are comfortable and fit well. Here are the best shorts styles for a fuller body type.

Side Slit

If you have larger thighs, you know the struggle to find a pair of shorts that don’t cut off your circulation is real. While so many pairs feature a narrow cut, opting for loose shorts with a cute slide slit is one genius way to look trendy and be comfortable. Side-slit shorts have the added benefit of appearing slightly more formal than regular denim or cotton shorts. Pair them with a nice blouse and heels and you’re ready for a night out on the town.

Pleated

Pleated shorts are roomy on the hips and thighs and their silhouette actually makes your waist and midsection look even slimmer. They’re also fashionable when paired with a great pair of platform sandals and a silk blouse or graphic T-shirt.

Knee Length

Shorts that cut off at the knee are extremely flattering on women with more generous hips and thighs, particularly if they are cut slim to show off your natural curves. For a polished look, find a pair of knee-length shorts with a higher waist that can be belted and add a pretty blouse and heels. Casual pieces that work well include an eye-catching tank and ballet flats or embellished flat sandals.

High Waist

High-waist shorts are ideal for women with pear-shaped figures, in which the hips and thighs are larger than the upper body. A slimmer, cinched waist makes it appear as if the body has an hourglass shape and roomy, A-line shorts that are wider at the bottom give you all of the space you need to feel comfortable.

Simple Designs & Solid Colors

The busier your clothing, the more attention you’ll draw to the area of your body that it highlights. When paired with more ornate tops, like a ruffly blouse or tank, shorts in solid colors or with minimal and simple designs balance larger hips and thighs and help make the body look more proportioned. Vertical stripes on shorts also help elongate the legs for an overall slimmer look.

Shorts styles are interesting and varied these days and there’s a style to suit every body type. If you have larger hips and thighs, longer, roomier, and high-waisted shorts in flattering solid colors will keep you looking like a goddess all summer long.
