Questionable I'm going to talk about something that I just don't understand (Again. Recurring theme, I know. )

But, perhaps you will agree with me. Maybe you'll understand. Maybe we can start a self-help group to solve this puzzle and together develop a coping mechanism. 

My confusion stems from one source: these.

these are not shorts

What are these?! Are they shorts? Are they underwear? Maybe even pants? Uh, definitely not pants. Seriously, I have boy short underwear (you know, "brief" style) that are the same size as these so-called "shorts".

underwear or short shorts brief style underwear with short shorts

I'm not trying to bash on anyone who chooses to wear these, I know its your body, your decision, but rather I am questioning the authenticity of the retail stores that call these shorts (and sell them for 20$ a pair, WTF?). I don't think they are shorts. More like, "almost-underwear-type-things-wait-is-my-butt-showing-now?" (it totally is). Anyway, I've yet to see anyone over a size two actually look good in these.

What do you think? Are they shorts, or are they undies? Because your derrière depends on the answer.


  1. Yeah, I don't understand. I'm pretty sure the fact that they are shorter does not actually make you feel cooler in summer. And I've seen them for as much as $40. And I'm a size 2 or 0 and I'm pretty sure they would make me look chubby. Not flattering at all!

  2. i am a size four, and i could never imagine wearing 'denim underwear' like that. it would end up looking like my rear was trying to eat my shorts. not a pretty sight.

  3. Haha I am guilty of wearing these occasionally. It is a style I am growing out of though!


  4. The underwear are obviously shorter than the shorts and also thinner in fabric. Underwear has no pockets as to the shorts which probably have a total of five pockets. You can also use a belt for the shorts and not the underwear. I think the shorts are much better quality and more practical. I would choose the shorts :)

  5. I call'em like I see'em: denim underwear ;)

  6. Haha yeah shorts are thicker! I was mostly alluding to how skimpy in length these shorts are! The underwear is only like 2 inches shorter. :)

  7. LOL! Denim undies, for sure! I love a cute pair of cutoffs, but I do not consider those shorts. I hate that they're everywhere all the time, too. I cannot even find appropriate length shorts for my girls. :/


Thank you so much for commenting! Your thoughts bring smiles to my face :)
