How to Wear Shorts With Thick Thighs


When you have thick thighs, you may feel self-conscious baring your legs for all to see. Because you should choose and wear clothing that makes you feel comfortable and confident, you can opt to slip into shorts that give your thighs a bit more coverage. Not only can you camouflage your generous thighs with shorts, you can also pair those bottoms with a top that makes all the difference.


Pick Bermuda style shorts that have a straight cut to lengthen and trim your thighs. Avoid a loose, flowing short. Instead, go for a tailored, flat front look.


Ensure that the shorts end right above your knee for the most flattering fit. Check the hem for room -- you don't want it to bind on your leg.


Pair the shorts with a printed top to direct eyes away from your bottom half.

Tips & Tricks


Take the time to try on different brands of Bermudas. Not all brands fit the same way.

Cargo-style shorts add bulk to already thick thighs, so avoid them.

Too-tight cuffs on shorts emphasize the girth of legs.

Avoid rolled cuffs or mid-thigh length shorts. They won't flatter your thighs.
