Plus, alongside number of classic tailoring, there are lots of stylish, contemporary pieces, to instantly update any wardrobe. Here are some easy guidelines for buying shorts:
- Understand the rise of the shorts: usually, a medium-rise pair sits well on curvy women
- Know the length of the inseam: try different lengths until you find a pair of shorts that need no adjusting after a short walk.
- Buy a size up: having shorts in a size larger give room for your thighs to move with ease. It will reduce muffin top, will reduce creasing at the crotch/leg joints and will just make them more comfortable
- Minimize pleats, pockets and other details: Even one pleat in the front can make your belly look like second trimester. Flat front is definitely your best option
