I am a size 12 -14 with a tummy. I can never get shorts to suit me. I always cut a pair of jeans and hem them on the sewing machine. The most flattering length for me is knee length or just below my bum. Mid thigh makes my short legs look dumpy.
Size 14, 50 with awful knees. I like Boden's linen shorts as they come in different lengths and are quite loose around the leg which I think distracts from my knees but I don't really care. I do look as though I am off to colonise a small country though. Not sure they are stylish, more unobtrusive.
