Points to Keep in Mind while Buying Shorts:

While buying a pair of shorts always keep in mind to buy shorts that will flatter your figure and accentuate your features. There is a multitude of stylish options available in the market for women of all shapes and sizes. Know your measurements in order to select the right style for your body type.

  • Make sure of your height: Shorts longer in length create the impression of shorter legs, whereas short shorts show elongated legs, giving the impression of height. Play it safe by. A majority of women buy shorts that hit around the mid-thigh.
  • Consider the fit: Shorts that have a flare towards the bottom, and are not body hugging look good on both petite and curvy girls. Shorts with a longer style like mid-thigh shorts, Bermudas, or biker shorts are the best option for taller people.
