I've hit 36 this year, it's been about a decade since I last had enough confidence to wear shorts.
All I wanted was some nice cheap shorts to wear when it's sweltering.
Wtf are these?!

Looks like the puppy got to the big knickers and pulverised them.

Maybe the black 'shorts' are like that so you have something to clip your Bag For Life to.

Hotpants. And..erm...a big hairy spider?!

😂 Shein does actually have normal shorts, alongside the weirdnesses one might expect from Wish or Temu! M&S had some decent shorts last time I looked, too - pleated front, I think they were called.

Get yer legs out and enjoy!

I would love to say nobody wears those but...

I live near a Sixth form college. I saw a student wearing what looked like a pair of high-waisted granny pants, a crop top and a shirt.

For my secondary school aged daughters school residential, we got a specific instruction that shorts needed to be at least mid thigh and no crop tops.

I vary between thinking its great girls have such body confidence and worry they are going to catch their death of cold or insect bites...

Next or sainsburys do normal Bermuda shorts - like cut off jeans. M&S have some lovely chino shorts.

I went on a similar shopping mission and kept being offered what appeared to be a denim thong….

😂😂😂Oh My! Even my 19 year old punk self would say no to those lack things.

Perhaps the briefer the shorts, the quicker for the Shein sweatshops to manufacture.

I think the ones with the lace are quite pretty but I wouldn’t wear them.
surely the black ones belong in the lingerie section?
when does a pair of shorts become a pair of knickers?
can’t stand those shorts that are so short you can see someone’s ass hanging out.
