Shorts

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I probably won't be wearing them much this summer. My thighs got ucky looking when I gained a bunch of weight. I've lost some but my legs are still lumpy and riddled with stretch marks. Ewwwww.

I haven't worn shorts in years. I have VITILIGO and I'm very self conscious about it! I also rarely wear short sleeves, and never go sleeveless. That's probably why I dislike summer so much.

This is one old lady that will be unpacking the shorts very soon. My legs have always been my best asset and God has blessed me by keeping them good for me even at 61+.

I have blood pooling issues now, so mine look weird sometimes - splotchy reddish areas. I also usually have anywhere from 5 to 15 bruises on my legs... no idea how most of them happen. So no shorts for me. My legs don't sweat anyways so I don't get hot in jeans.

If you want something a little more summery looking you could wear capris or look for some loose light weight linen pants.

I haven't worn shorts the past few years since I gained weight either. It's capri pants for this chick!

I feel the same way. I have started to lose some weight, but haven't lost it in my thighs yet.

I'll wear shorts, but not the really short ones I see lots of girls my age wearing. The shortest I'll go is just above my knee, although I have a skort with a hem that falls (estimate, I have no idea) about 3 inches above my knee. I won't wear sleeveless/really short-sleeved shirts because I've got way too much on upper arm and I'm pretty sure nobody wants to see all that!

But yeah, capris are awesome if you wanna look summery without showing a lot of leg. Pair them with a cute shirt and some sandals and voila!

I havn't worn shorts since I was around 12 years old. I wish I would have back then, because looking back now I wasn't chubby at all. Now I am though.

Yee Hawwww!
I'm 50 and my legs are great also. Thanks to my Grandma...she had awesome legs, long, with nice defined calves. Of course Grandma and myself look like whiskey barrels on toothpicks. I wear shorts as often as I can. Here in OR...I usually have to wear pants about three months out of the year. I broke mine(shorts) out about a month and a half ago...we had a long winter!

I love shorts...even though my skin is dry because I don't drink enough water, I figure I'll take advantage of the fact that I can look fine in them (being young have it's assets! ). I love capris too though, and probably will end up wearing pants too.

I have a large birth mark (defect if you wanna be a jerk about it) and it doesn't hold any pigment but I still wear shorts! If Im feeling skinny Ill even wear short shorts! I love capris but Goucho's are my favorite! Im really tan since I fake n bake, except for the one large spot which is heart shaped and Ive gotten better about dealing with it!

I wear long pants at work (sweatpants) but I wear shorts when I'm off.

I wear men's cargo shorts because I think women's shorts are just too short, I like em just below my knees.
I also buy men's pajama bottoms and cut em off at the knees.
I've only worn these kinds of shorts for as long as I can remember.

I figure I don't want to look at my cottage cheese thighs, why should anyone else?

I've been wearing shorts for about a month now. I get too hot wearing long pants esp working outside. Bad thing is I'm a klutz and currently have a scab on each shin already and once I put on a swimsuit I have an awful farmers tan

My feet on the other hand need some TLC as they are pretty dry already and heels are looking icky...........

I don't wear shorts cause I hate shaving but I do wear capris and yes, i shave half of my calf for them that's probably TMI

I wear shorts all the time once it gets nice out. I just don't like having to shave more, since I don't too often when I never wear shorts.
