Is it just me or does it feel like finding a great pair of denim shorts for plus-size gals seems nearly impossible?! Not only is the selection of plus-size shorts so limited right now, but many seem basic and quite frankly, boring.
I want shorts that are comfortable and trendy for summer, yet I’m finding very few options out there to choose from. Retailers who typically carry plus-size denim are not offering a single pair of jean shorts in extended sizing.
This lack of shorts in my closet proved to be a pretty big problem for me recently when I took a work trip to the hot-tropolis of Atlanta. I found myself in ultra-humid and hot weather with, you guessed it, not a single pair of shorts in my suitcase. So, on a whim, I decided to pop over to Target and struck gold when I found the best pair of denim shorts that don’t gap and fit my ultra-curvy body like a glove!
The Best Plus-Size Denim Shorts For Big Booty Babes (BBB)
My number one issue when it comes to any kind of denim (shorts included) is the significant gapping on my back side. While my jeans typically look great while standing, the minute I sit down, I immediately have several inches of gapping on my back that gives bystanders a full peep show of whatever underwear I am wearing. So when I found a pair of jean shorts specifically made to alleviate gapping, I knew I needed to buy them immediately.
These jean shorts are the perfect length! I don’t tend to love, as Shana would call it, denim underwear. And I also don’t love Bermuda shorts because they don’t flatter my shorter legs. These hit right in the middle of my thighs — exactly where I love my shorts to be. The denim has a great amount of stretch, but still holds its shape well and the ever-so-slight distressing makes for a trendier look.
Target’s No-Gap Jean Shorts Might Be Even Better In Black
I fell in love with the lighter wash of these shorts in store, and decided I had to have them in the black denim wash, too. And while I absolutely love the light denim look, the black shorts are just sexy and a bit more sophisticated. The black wash is super-flattering and much easier to dress up for a summery date night. I recently paired them with my new summer tank that’s perfectly cropped for my shorter torso and has a gorgeous square neckline.
I seriously love these no-gap, perfect-for-my-ultra-curvy-body denim shorts so much and cannot recommend them enough! Plus, does it get any better than a $22 dollar price tag?! I think not!
