I see a lot of Chictopians rocking their high waist shorts. I want a pair for this summer but I’m a little self conscious about my legs. Can high waist shorts work with short legs and not so skinny waist? It seems to make people look curvy, but what if you don’t have a belly that is very flat? Any tips?

Well, the more leg you can manage to show, the longer they should appear to be. Not sure about what to do with a pudgey tummy though. I have a bit of a pudge leftover from winter hibernation, but my high waisted shorts actually keep my tummy in, so maybe that’ll work for you? Really, I’d just go out and try some on and see how they work with your body type.

I wish I could rock the high waist trend, but I’ve got such a short torso I feel like I’d pretty much have nothing between my bosoms and my waistband!

Oh my gosh! I have the same problem. I look a bit like a nerd when I wear them… I have a cute pair, but I’m only 5’1 so it’s not that cute. Girls with long torsos look absolutely gorgeous in them! I wish I could grow 4 inches! Haha! :)

There is some great advice here. I have the same problem myself as I have a short torso. I think I may invest in a pair though. Do any of you know where I could buy a denim pair?

Maybe look for a pair with a slightly less high waist if you are short-torso’d and worried, I have to shop around alot cos I’m quite tall and a lot of high waisted things don’t actually make it up to my waist. I’d say try a shop with a specialised petit section, so that they are more tailored for you!

And if you’re worried about having a bit of belly try some made from a thicker material? Or a different cut, I have some ‘paper bag’ style denim ones that would easily hide anything you’re worried about as they are a really flattering style.

Or some control pants :)
