I do actually wear shorts in summer -I try to get them to the knee or just below but they are hard to find at that length.
Even though I work in an Op Shop that is possibly an old fashioned length but one I like! When we DO get them they are floppy at the legs and I like the legs not flared but straight or tight.
I therefore keep my old ones for years - nothing wrong with them!
My knees are not as nice as they used to be so I need shorts to halfway down my nobbly knees!
I have some shorts that are above the knee. I have a few pair that are below the knee but they are what I consider 3/4 pants, not shorts. The ones above the knee, I have a few pair of them. Tried them all on the other day and they still fit. All mine are pull on shorts, not button up, so very comfortable on a very hot day.
I have no shorts that I can recall. Years ago I practically lived in them . . . but, you know, time and gravity . . . not a sight to be seen now. I wear capris or washer pants. I like the washer pants as they are baggy and cool around the legs. Below the knees, please.
I used to wear shorts when I went for my morning walks. Now I only wear them around the house, knee length. I wear 3/4 length or full length light weight slacks now, to walk in, as I don't like my knees much either!
Just above or on the knee! I have never liked short shorts even when I was younger. Also, I like the comfort and ease for pulling on, of elastic waisted shorts. Having arthrtis means that the less buttons and zips, the better!!!!!
I haven't worn shorts for about forty years now. I never, ever liked short shorts. Don't care how good your legs are or how long they are either. My favourite length is a bermuda short.Also like baggy, longer shorts. But if it is clothing with the aim of keeping cool, I guess you are better off with a short, short denim skirt if you are young or an all cotton skirt (not fitted), rather than any sort of shorts.
I gave my favourite pair of short shorts to charity. I feel uncomfortable wearing them now that I am a mum. To be fair, they were the most modest ones I could find. The back of the legs weren't cuffed, so nothing was on show.
