Best Shorts for your body type!

Mid-length shorts from Lands' endHello!

Here are a few tips on choosing the right kind of shorts for yourself , look more flattering in your outfit :)

Mid Length Shorts : All Body Types

Shorts with a mid-length leg, are universally flattering. They're called different things -- walk shorts, day shorts, golf shorts, classic shorts, etc. -- but are best recognized by an inseam of about 7 or 8 inches.
Why We Love Them: Unlike knee-length shorts that cut your leg in half visually, shorter lengths make your legs look longer, while still covering problem areas like the upper thigh. For the most flattering look, keep fullness under control (slimmer-legged shorts will make your legs look slimmer, too.)

Knee-Length Shorts  : Flabby Upper Legs
Knee-length shortsCover problem areas like dimpled or flabby thighs with a slim-fitting pair of shorts  that hit at the knee.

Why We Love Knee-Length Shorts: Although knee-length shorts can make short legs look shorter, it's easy to balance it out with a pair of wedges for extra leg length. Also, look for slim-cut shorts -- these jean-style shorts are perfect -- to give your legs a longer, slimmer look (too-full shorts look more like gauchos at this length and aren't flattering.)

Shorter Shorts : Short Legs

Why We Love Shorter Shorts: Four or 5 inch-inseam shorts are long enough to give some upper-leg coverage, but short enough to lengthen the leg. Avoid cuffs or rolled-up styles because that will just make your legs look shorter.

Bermuda Shorts: Plus Size

These almost knee-length shorts are a dressier look and are perfect for shopping, travel, even career if your workplace allows them. Pop on a pair of wedges for a leg-lengthening look that's really flattering.

Roll Up shorts : tall and thin
