I've been looking at shorts for 2 summers now and I've always been hesitant about actually wearing them. Its the usual girly image battle will my legs be ok, will my butt look good, will small children run in fear?
Well this year I'm biting the bullet and I would like to introduce you to my first pair of shorts!
As soon as I saw these Black High Waisted Shorts - $69.65 (only indigo can be found as well online) at City Chic and I knew that they needed to be mine. As soon as I slipped them on I discovered they are pretty much perfect for my shape, I'm wearing a size 14.
Now I know that as a plus size woman the concept of shorts is rather daunting. I read so many women on facebook saying that these were too small that they would never wear them as they hated their legs. Well I don't love my legs either ladies, I have all the lumps and bumps everyone one else has and yes cellulite.
- Wear them with killer heels - They elongate your legs and shorts need this.
- Don't wear them with flats if you are not 100% comfortable with your legs.
- If you feel the need to cover up a little more add Opaque stockings or Fishnets
- Find a pair that are a comfortable length for you.
These shots were taken by my lovely friend Michael Alesich from Lucky and Rice. He is a brilliant photographer and I'm so happy he is able to help me out by showing off the garments!
I was also mentioned in City Chic's blog, so please go read it if you have not already written by the wonderful Danimezza!
