The 9 best denim shorts for big thighs
Have you noticed? Anyways, high waisted shorts are perfection for a woman with big thighs.
The high waisted fit of this style of shorts creates the most incredible figure flattery. When you opt for a higher rise short it creates a shape and accentuates your waistline — this helps to create the illusion of more balance in your shape instead of bringing all the focus to your big thighs AND it makes your legs look longer and leaner. For petite women in particular, what high waist de does is it elevates your natural waistline, making your legs instantly look a lot longer.

The problem with wearing super tight shorts is they are going to bring all the focus to your thighs and create the illusion of them appearing bigger than they are. When you have big thighs I highly suggest opting for shorts that have side slits.
Well, those tiny little slits are your new BFF. This year there are a ton of different shorts trends around, varying lengths being one of them. When you have big thighs you should focus on shorts that rest below the widest part of your thigh, like these two from Revolve.
When you do wear shorts that rest at the largest part of your thigh, they accentuate that area of your body and will often times make them look larger than they are in a non-flattering manner. In this photo you will find Rachel Bilson wearing dark denim shorts that bypass the thickest part of her thighs, drawing attention to the slender part thus looking very flattering on her.
Pleated shorts?! The reason being is pleats, by default, provide a lot more room and movement on your body because of the way they fit. Basically, pleats allow your shorts to work with your body instead of working against it.
