It’s hot y’all. Hot in Houston, hot in Canada, record-breaking hot all over the world and thus it’s time to settle this important fashion matter once and for all: can moms wear short shorts?
Shorts for Moms
Before I give the answer to the question, “Can moms wear short shorts?” let’s discuss it for a minute. Firstly, I would like to clarify who I’m talking about here.
Moms = all moms of any age and any size
OR, what I really mean when I say “moms” is all women whether you have children, fur babies or no babies. This matter is relevant to every woman who’s been sweating in the heat of summer and wondered if she can ‘get away’ with wearing shorts.
Next, I’d like to clarify what I mean by short shorts.
Short = not booty shorts, not capris; anything above the knee but below the cheeks
Because that seems to be what women have a problem with wearing: anything above the knee. We think our thighs are too chubby too much cellulite not enough muscle too white too _____. (fill in the blank with your complaint)
Now that I’ve clarified terms…
YES, Moms Can Wear Shorts!
Ladies, there is no reason not to wear shorts. Most of us have cellulite, most of us don’t have the legs we wish we had. Most of us are only paying attention to our own legs!
Before you go saying, “but you have nice legs,” let me say, it’s not about the legs. It’s about finding shorts that fit your body.
Some people don’t like shorts because they ride up. Other people don’t like skirts because their thighs chafe. Those are FIT factors that are good to consider when buying clothes but they can be addressed.
Just don’t rule out shorts because they’re shorts. Don’t stop yourself from wearing shorts because of your legs. Don’t think you can’t wear shorts because someone might be looking at your legs or thinking you shouldn’t be wearing them.
Moms and women everywhere, this isn’t about shorts at all. This is about changing our paradigm so that the next generation doesn’t even need to know what cellulite is, that body positivity is a cultural response to the opposite. So that they only thing they think about is: what do I feel comfortable wearing? And then they wear it, freely.
