Do you wear shorts? If so, what length do you like.....short shorts, above the knee shorts, to the knee shorts, below the knee shorts? OR are you a person that doesn't like to wear shorts at all?

I don't wear shorts at all, I wear long [mid calf or longer] dresses. I find I am more comfortable in this than when I did wear shorts, or pants. The air flow under a long, loose, light-weight dress is so much better. I now find that pants of any kind, including shorts are confining, plus they chaff my skin

Other than short shorts, I wear them all! I don't care how much cellulite and how ugly my legs get :) I can't stand not to wear shorts on 95 degree days! My sister in law refuses to wear shorts and she was burning up the other day during our garage sale (95 degrees and she was wearing jeans!)

LOL I think you described my legs! I'll only wear shorts that go to my knees. Mostly though I wear capris and sandals. They keep me cool enough. And this year I bought a couple of nice summer dresses and I am liking them alot so far. I think I'm gonna pick up a couple more.

I like different styles of shorts. Though I am getting too old for short shorts. i will wear them a little above the knee, to the knee and below the knee. Just depends on what I am doing in what I wear when.

Normally, I like to wear shorts. I prefer ones that come to just above my knee, most of the time. Since we've moved, though, I haven't worn shorts but maybe once or twice, and when I did, I usually ended up cold! I'm just glad that I didn't buy a bunch of new shorts before we moved!

Hello daycarepal. I love to wear shorts of all length. I normally wear short shorts at home as it gave me a lot of comfort. Its quite a trend here to wear knee shorts nowadays here in my country. I owned several pieces of shorts in different length at home.

No i do not wear shorts at all. I used to when i was a kid. While playing football, everyday i went to the field wearing shorts. But now times have changed, i have grown older, my legs have become more hairy...shorts are not suitable for me anymore...The shorts i used to wear were all knee shorts.

I wear shorts especially when I'm at home. They are more comfortable to move in. I don't like short shorts. Especially that I'm quite chubby, doesn't look nice on me. And I prefer the loose one too at knee length. (^^,)

I don't wear shorts outside the home. I do not feel comfortable in them. I will only wear them in the yard and in the house. I make sure no one sees me in them. I won't even let my hubby see me in them.

I really prefer not to wear shorts. I was born and raised in Florida and went all my life barely wearing shorts. Only on very few & far between instances do I wear shorts. If I MUST wear shorts, below the knee is preferable to me. I much rather stick with my jeans thanks !!

I do in the summer when it is really warm out. I wear my shorts on the loose side either at the knee or below the knee(like short length capri's)with a fitted t-shirt to balance it out. In order for me to put shorts on though I have to have just shaved legs and use a nice moisturizer that gives my legs/shins some sheen...I know, it's nuts!LOL!

I like wearing shorts, I wear a below the knee shorts! Its because i want some long shorts and i don't want to look like a kid when Im wearing short! And I also wear a short that is to the knee shorts cause it is also good to look! but i also want to look tall from my short so i don't want to look like short! My friends also told me to wear a long shorts so we can get on the new generation.And my parents also buy me a long shorts! So all my shorts are below the knees!And when my birthday cames!I got my presents, and inside it! It is also a long shorts, that's why i like a shorts below the knee.

I don't like wearing shorts at all. I wear shorts in the summer when it is really hot but i prefer long pants that go all the way to my shoes. When i do wear shorts i like them to be just above the knee shorts.

I do wear short pants above my knee, but it's not going to be too, too short at all...it's only half above my knee, so to speak. :-)

I don't really like shorts that much, the only length that I am fine with would be just below the knees. I think those look gorgeous with high heels on but I really don't wear that often too (maybe once in a million years!). I would prefer long pants (or jeans) most of the time. And I think I am really getting used to long pants, I would think that I look a bit funny in shorts. Anyway, I think it's a habit and I might to break it through this summer time, just to try something new and hopefully that would be refreshing!

I do wear shorts. But not as often as I used to. I have big chucky thighs anymore, so they aren't as fun to wear as they used to be. lol But when I do wear them they are above the knee shorts, well just a bit above the knee..more like mid thigh.

Yes, but I prefer capris. I like to wear shorts,but they can't be short shorts as I feel like that is for the younger set. I like my shorts to be about mid way between my waist and my knees. I love my jean capris and I wear them a lot during the warm months.

I love to wear shorts. I live in Canada but I still like to wear shorts most of the time. I even used to wear shorts in the middle of winter and go snowboarding (but then again i was young and a teenager lol) I find that they provide me with coverage (lol thank god) but still allow me to "show some skin". I can't wear the short shorts because well frankly I'm chunky and don't have the kind of legs to wear short shorts. I prefer the ones that are commonly called "jersey shorts" because they look like the ones that basketball players wear. The only issue I have with these shorts is that they don't have pockets! lol
