I love a great pair of shorts. Shorts are definitely a tricky thing… last year, you and I had this conversation about shorts, the plus size woman, and if you could rock them. I have rocked shorts in a few outfit posts! My plus size cutoff denim shorts here, trouser shorts here, and rolled ones here. I must also share that I am quite spoiled by the California weather! Right now, in April, we have a high of 70. I will take that.
For spring and summer, this item is coming harder and I. Am. Here. For. It.
Today, I wanted to share with you a few pairs of plus size shorts that I am already getting excited for, for the spring and summer season! Are you ready?

In our conversation we had last year, I shared with you my personal tips when it comes to rocking shorts. Everyone has their personal comfort level, for me, it’s fingertips! LOL But I wanted to share them again!
- I buy a size up. It’s hot. I do not need tights and uncomfortable shorts on top of the heat. To remedy this, I buy a size up. Room for my thighs to move with ease and to reduce the friction.
- I almost ALWAYS abide by the fingertip rule. If it is shorter than my fingertips- chances are you WILL NOT catch me rocking it. Legs are sexy, but any shorter and I am wearing underwear (in my eyes).
- I opt for darker rinses and heavier fabrics. Kind of contrary to staying cool in the summer right? However, a sturdier fabric (heavier cotton blends or denim) reduces the risk of the shorts riding up creating that inverted V. YOU KNOW what I am talking about.
