Gearing up for warm weather? I'm sharing the best shorts for a Pear Shaped Body!
You asked, and I investigated. Let's be honest…….finding shorts that fit us ladies with a pear shaped body? Can be a bit of a challenge. Fitted shorts tend to draw attention to wider thighs and be not very flattering. Bermuda shorts look terrible. And most short that fit in the hips are HUGE in the waist. I wrote a similar blog post about my favorite shorts for a pear shaped body last year……and wanted to be sure to update you guys with my favorites for 2018!
I really focused on finding jean or denim shorts options…..for some reason, those have historically been the MOST difficult for me. Apparently I'm not the only one, because when I asked YOU GUYS…..you had the same complaints. Either ridiculously short or so tight they looked terrible. Well, it took awhile but….. great news, I found TWO options that I LOVE for denim shorts for a pear shaped body!
The Best Shorts for a Pear Shaped Body
After trying and testing an embarrassing amount of shorts……these are my absolute favorites. It's interesting how certain brands tend to be my favorite for shorts year after year (and they tend to be the SAME brands that I love for jeans during cooler months). Current favorites? Madewell, LOFT, and Kut From The Kloth. If you're a pear shaped lady, those brands tend to be super flattering on our body type!
Scalloped Chambray Shorts (size 12): I wore these to Disneyland for Pixarfest, and they were SO comfortable. Apparently you guys loved them too, because when I shared them on my instagram stories…..a LOT of you bought them. I love how soft they are, and they hit at JUST the right point on my thighs to be flattering. They're also super versatile, I've worn them with heels and a light sweater for a date night too!

Riviera Shorts (size 12): These shorts were my pick of the summer LAST year, and they're back in a million new prints this year. I own a striped pair, sailor buttoned ones, and a bunch of cute florals. Trust me, they're a MUST own. They'll last for years and you'll be happy you have them!
Short Overalls (size large): I know. I went there. Honestly, I wasn't sure if I was going to love or hate these short overalls for women. And I'm OBSESSED. They fit really well, they're very comfortable, and I love that the bib draws the eyes up….super flattering for a pear shaped body!
