15 Summer-Approved Plus-Size Shorts to Shop Now

With summer around the corner, it’s time to kick your warm-weather wardrobe into high gear and stock up on the essentials. Next on my list, plus-size shorts!

Because of my middle-heavy body type, shopping for bottoms and shorts has always been a bit challenging. Often the shorts inseam isn’t long enough or the leg is too wide in the shorts that accommodate my midsection.

But with mega brands like Forever 21 recently expanding their plus-size section, shopping for fashionable shorts that fit is easier than ever. This summer, we are seeing bold printed shorts, as well as a mix of bright and neutral tan colors. From Bermuda shorts to embellished daisy dukes, you can find all types of plus-size shorts at every budget to add to your summer wardrobe.
