Nine Pairs Of Shorts You’ll Love This Summer If You Usually Avoid Wearing Them

Tiny denim shorts aren't your only option, remember!

For anyone who has isn’t 100% body confident, which saddly, is a lot of us, summer can be a little daunting. Finding something to wear in the heat that won’t leave you feeling over-exposed and self-conscious can be tough when crop tops and denim shorts are the norm.

Many women of all shapes, heights and sizes can look incredible in a cute pair of denim shorts, but for some of us, it’s just not something we’ll even consider.

From a young age, right up until now, I dread the thought of wearing a denim short on a day in the sun, because, although I’m getting better and better at accepting my body every day, shorts just don’t particularly look good on me, they tend give me a bit of a sausage leg and make me feel quite self-conscious. If you’re like me, you’ll get it.

Which is why it’s time to remind you that shorts don’t have to be tight, uncomfortable or unflattering, and you can get just about any cut, fabric and style you desire.
