Have You Noticed How Expensive Women's Shorts Are Lately?

$25 for a skimpy pair of shorts even at cheap king Walmart. Outrageous. Well, another 5 years for me then wearing the same shorts. What kind of shorts do you like? Jeans or velour or hot pants?

It’s hard for me to find shorts that I like. Most of the shorts I see in the stores cover less than a loin cloth would, and nobody wants to see an overweight old woman running around in that!

I wear many different style shorts . . . but no short-shorts (which we used to call daisy dukes ). Believe it or not, my daughter discovered she outgrew a whole bunch of shorts recently . . . guess who got some hand me downs (ups?) .

@RebeccasFarm Well, she is now taller than me, and "bigger". I think she has more of her father's side's physique . I'm really not "fit" - just have small genes (jeans ).

$25 doesn't seem very expensive to me, however, I've not shopped for shorts in years.

I have a few, but I don’t wear them anymore. I had outgrown them, but could wear them now. I only like them at the beach or to wear over my swimsuit.

I don't wear shorts my friend. One woman told me the last time I wore shorts that a snooker table had better legs than I did. The shorts she was wearing were obscured by massive paps, I laughed.

I don't think there's anything reasonably priced anymore even at Walmart. As for shorts I haven't worn them in years. I've gone with capris which are a little longer. I'm too old now for shorts

I never wear shorts outside. Partly because of my grandma and partly because of the strong tan I can get from the sun. But i always wear shorts inside my home, but their just normal shorts. Not expensive.

Yes they are crazy expensive. My husband bought me a gift card years ago to American Eagle. Their shorts are regularly $50. I got some on clearance for 50% off. They aren't going to fit me for along time after I have this baby I bet. They are high waisted which I hate as it bothers my stomach after I eat since I always bloat.

I am at that stage in my life that I gave up wearing shorts a very long time ago, I wear long flowing summer dresses that cover up most of me,

My main requirement for shorts is that they are comfortable. Also, no short shorts, for my fat, old legs...

I think skimpy womens shorts should be as cheap as possible, to encourage women to wear them.

I like shorts, maybe just above the knee. Mine are all too big, but I didn't really look for any new ones this year.
