Plus Size Shorts for Women
A wardrobe essential for the hot weather and holiday season, plus size shorts for women can be purchased in a large range of figure flattering styles in sizes from 16 to 26 and beyond. Collections include tailored, sports and surf and board shorts and culottes.
Plus size shorts for women are available in an array of neutrals, brights and patterned prints and are manufactured from lightweight and breathable cotton and cotton blends, linen and synthetic mixes including polyester.
Many plus size shorts for women are designed with the fuller figure in mind. Invest in tailored high waisted shorts for the balmy weather as the cut is figure flattering. A pair of these style shorts will not only enhance your curves, they also make the perfect partner for a summer crop top.
Culottes are also a great choice for the fuller figure. These wide legged shorts are designed to hang like a skirt at either above the knee, knee or midi lengths and their tailored fit can define the waist and make legs look longer. A classic fashion item, culottes can be purchased in smart belted and pleated styles or baggy legged casual pants in floral or graphic prints.
Many plus size shorts for women, such as those made from cotton mixes, will have elasticated or drawstring waists for added comfort and easy adjustability. Jersey shorts are a similar easy ‘pull on, pull off style which offers the ultimate in comfort and are the first choice of many for casual loungewear when relaxing at home.
Certain styles of shorts will cross over to the autumn/winter season, allowing for year-round wear. For edgy chic in the chillier months wear a pair of thick black tights underneath distressed denim shorts. The extra layer of material will prevent any chafing and keep you comfortable all day long.
