Plus Size Style Blogging: The Shorts Situation

Curvy ladies everywhere, you know what I’m talking about. 

Who hasn’t gone to try on a pair of killer shorts that women everywhere would die for and realised your size comes up too small? Is this the end? Is your future summer happiness hanging in the balance? 

Never fear, Hannah’s here. 

What’s the most important is being comfortable. It’s no good squeezing yourself into something and not risk sitting down in case you hear the inevitable *rip*.

Remember the different styles:


Made from a light weight wovenfabric and a stretch high waist, they are perfect for summery evenings and allow your legs to breathe. Perfect for holidays.


If you’re looking for something a little longer in the leg, tailored shorts offer the perfect solution. Fitted high rise, they flatter the figure. 


The most popular, festival chic` denim shorts. Offer that classic fit with a high waist support and are more often enough the source of our summer outfits.  

Choose a style that fits you well and remember and take into consideration what you’ll be doing throughout the day. Turning up in tailored shorts to go rock climbing isn’t sensible now is it? 

Make sure to use Plus Size sections of websites before purchasing as they give a more comfortable fit as they are specifically created to cater for women who are themselves, plus sized.
