When it’s hot outside, we’ll go to any length to stay cool. But when it comes to women’s plus size shorts or plus size capris? Some lengths might work better for you than others.
Finding the right inseam for your body means fuss-free comfort. No riding up, no chafing—just smooth sailing all summer long.
So store last season’s pants and let our guide help you discover which length is perfect for you.
There’s no denying that these shorts will keep you the coolest. If you love showing off your legs, this is the length for you! Shorts in the 5″-6″ range typically hit at the upper section of your thigh—they’re not too short, but just right.
Short Length (5"-6")
Love the look of women’s plus size shorts but prefer something a bit longer? Bermudas are the perfect compromise. Shorts in the 11″-12″ range will hit just above the knee. You’ll get the cooling benefits of a short, plus the coverage you’re looking for.
Pants meet plus size shorts in this retro-inspired style. Just like with jeans, no capri is exactly the same—there are different silhouettes, lengths, and fabrics. They’ll typically sit in the 19″-22″ range and hit the middle of your calf.
