Mid Thigh Shorts?

(15 Posts)

I really want some shorts that I can wear out of the house this summer, I am not ready for knee length shorts but nor do I want my backside on show for all and sundry to see.

I can only find hot pants or knee length with turn ups.

Anyone got any lovely shorts this year?

Sorry I can't help but am piggybacking your post as I am after some myself!

I have lovely black ones from Hush. They are pricey and sure that you could get ones that are similar elsewhere.

There are a few other shorts that are length appropriate on the Hush website including the jeans ones with the turn ups [longer version] I have them from last year and they are really great. At the very least they can give you ideas of what to look for.

Thanks Never I will head over and check it out. I don't mind paying as they will get plenty of wear.

MrsZebra you wouldn't think it is so hard to find shorts of a decent length. I wear my hotpants on holiday but not for nipping round Tesco...

Exactly - no one needs to see my but cheeks on the school run!

The last few years I've found some like that in Tesco. I'm really hoping they deliver again this year. I actually find that length far more flattering on my less than perfect pins than longer ones.

mimiasovitch Thanks I will try there too. I am short (5ft 2) so knee length swamp me.

These any good? They have a few different colours of them.

Geillis there are a couple of pairs there that would suit, thank you!

I've recently bought some of those for my holidays, I can't wear short shorts or the dreaded chub rub kicks in blush.

I've just bought some nice ones from next.

Gap are usually good.

Mango have some they call 'mediano', which look very nice.
I got a pair two years ago that were great quality and not short, short but certainly not knee length!

I'm going for a nose tomorrow. I think we're after the same thing.

Brilliant thanks everyone, lots of places for me to look. Think it is time to branch out from ASOS, BooHoo and Newlook.... I am getting older aren't I!
