Denim Shorts: PrettyLittleThing | Bodysuit: Dorina (coming soon) | Sneakers: Vans | Belt: ASOS | Layered Necklace
Anyone else here have big booty problems? I’m so bottom-heavy for my frame it’s insane, like anything gained ends up right there… genetics? As a result, I have to be mindful of the sizing & fit of most pieces I choose to buy for wear below the waist. My biggest struggle is finding shorts, particularly denim shorts, that don’t ride up or expose any cheeky skin.
In my opinion, I feel like most styles of denim shorts are made to fit [younger] girls with zero hips. As a newly 28 year old with curves, the thought of not being able to participate in the denim shorts movement strictly because of fit is unacceptable. And I’m sure many of us share an equal struggle with the concept of feeling “too old” to sport denim shorts because of the age demographic they’ve been “designed” for.
But that’s why I’m here, friends! I might’ve found a solution to this denim dilemma that makes wearing them as an adult perfectly acceptable.
Here’s what you do: make them high-waisted & go for the mom jean fit.
The combo of both makes for a length you feel comfortable with and a fit that doesn’t suffocate. My biggest issue wearing denim shorts in the past was that they were too low-rise, which drew attention to my hips in an unflattering way. High-waist allows for the accentuation of the smaller part of your waist, above the hips. As for the mom jean fit, it’s a looser & more age-appropriate style. If you’re afraid the fit will make you look too wide, then balance it out with a form-fitting top or bodysuit such as I did.
