These Are The Best Denim Cutoff Shorts If Your Thighs Rub Together

No matter how much I work out, I will never have a thigh gap. It’s a fact that I’ve accepted. But denim shorts that rise up in between my legs when I walk? I refuse to accept that, which is why I made it my mission to find a pair that looked great, but also stayed in place.

The winner? Levi’s 501 Shorts ($49.50). The 2.5 inch may seem short, but rest assured there’s no visible butt cheek and they hit in just the right place to prevent bunching. I already own three pair–they’re that good.

A few notes of caution: sizing can be a bit tricky. My usual denim size was way too small and tight, but the size up was perfect. I could even afford to go two sizes up to achieve the slouchy “boyfriend” look. Also, I would advise against washing them after every wear (use these guidelines instead!) and drying is definitely a no-no to prevent shrinkage.

Have another pair of denim shorts you love? Please share in the comments!
