Let’s talk shorts. I’m sharing 5 tips for picking shorts for a pear shaped body that will change your life, because…..you’ll never dread wearing shorts again!
I’m sharing these shorts tips as part of a Tide sponsored series for Socialstars™.
Anyone else working on getting more mileage of out the summers basics you have in your closet? Over the last few months, I’ve been teaming up with Tide® PODS™ Plus Downy® to share a series of warm weather wardrobe staples that can be worn again and again. Today’s feature? Shorts. I know, if you’re a pear shaped body type (like me)…..you dread shorts. They’re uncomfortable, and you worry that they draw attention to your least favorite body parts.
I’m sharing five simple tips for shopping for shorts, that will help the pear shaped ladies love them. Trust me, you’ll want to wear shorts everyday if you follow this advice!
Size Up: If you have a pear shaped body, you want fabric to skim over your widest parts and accentuate your narrowest. I usually size up when buying shorts (I normally wear a size 10, but I always buy a size 12 in shorts).
Length is KEY: You want shorts to hit at the narrowest part of your thighs. For me, that’s mid thigh. I always buy shorts with a three to four inch inseam.
Fabric Type: think structured. I tend to buy linen blends, thicker woven cotton, or denim shorts. Really thin fabric isn’t going to flatter ANYONE with curves.
Balance: Darker on the bottom, lighter on the top. Pair your print or brightly color shorts with a light or white tee.
Do you have have favorite wardrobe items you wear again and again? Tide PODS® Plus Downy laundry detergent pacs offer the Tide clean you know and love, with the addition Downy Fabric Protect. These 4-in-1 laundry pacs will clean, brighten, fight stains and protect your clothes every time you do laundry…..so that you can wear your favorite shorts again and again without them looking tired and dingy (like all household products, keep out of reach of children). I can’t get over how gentle they are on my favorite pieces!
