Shorts shopping for many women is second only to bathing suit shopping on their list of things they hate. I get it. I really do. Especially after having kids finding the right fit can be a real challenge. I’ve heard so many women say they simply don’t wear them anymore and suffer through the heat in jeans.
I firmly believe that you can not only find shorts that fit but that you’ll also feel good in- even if you are curvy! There’s no reason to sweat through the summer in pants if you don’t want to. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites in a variety of styles and price points so there’s sure to be something for everyone. For size reference I am 5’4” and a size 12/large. I take the guesswork out of finding the perfect pair of shorts!
Sofia Vergara Denim Shorts
These Sofia Vergara shorts are just $24 and my top pick for affordable denim shorts with a fantastic fit. These are great on my curvy body but I’ve also seen them on more slender girls and they look amazing on them as well. I like the way they fit true to size but I’ve heard some girls say they size down. I bought them in 4 colors intending to return 2 and ended up keeping them all; they’re that good! They come in both distressed and non- distressed options.

Silver Jeans Co Denim Shorts
I absolutely love these Silver Jeans Co shorts! The distressing is just the right amount and the fit is perfect. I find them to fit true to size. If you want to splurge on a really nice pair of shorts this is my pick!

Levi’s Denim Shorts
These are extremely budget friendly and I love the fit. I also like that the rolled hem is sewn in place so you don’t have to fuss with it. The fit for me was true to size. I have to give a shout out to these super soft Lou & Grey tees from Loft- I’m obsessed with them (size down 1). They come in a few different washes and are all in the link below.

Pull On Shorts
These Merokeety pull-on shorts are an Amazon find and so flattering and comfortable! I’m wearing a large and feel they fit TTS. I do feel they get softer after washing. I own 4 pairs and will probably buy more! The drawstring makes these idea for women who are uncomfortable wearing shorts and I like that they have the feel of lounge shorts but are elevated enough to wear out fo the house.

I love Kut From the Kloth jeans so it’s no surprise I think their shorts are fantastic, too! These have a great fit and I liked the length on them. I’m wearing them true to size.
