& a HUGE SALE happening NOW!

Abercrombie is having a MASSIVE sale right now: 25% off all shorts & 15% off nearly everything else. PLUS there’s a 15% off stackable code: AFSHORTS!! You truly CANNOT beat these deals.

I am comparing the top 5 most popular Abercrombie shorts so YOU can know exactly which ones to snag and which ones to skip based on your body type and preferences.. so LET’S GET INTO IT.

Before we get started, for reference, I am 5’6′ with a rectangle body shape and usually wear a size 10/12. I went with the non-Curve Love options in these as I have a small differential between my hips and waist. If you have a curvier frame where your hips are wider than your waist, I’d suggest the Curve Love style which offers 2 additional inches in the hip/thigh and typically more stretch.

First up, THE DAD SHORT.

These are one of my favorites FOR SURE. They have an ultra high rise and the longest inseam at 5 inch. They are relaxed throughout the hip and thigh. They come in multiple different washes and style options, but I love that this one has no distressing which allows them to be that much more versatile. I wear my true to size 30 in these. Shop them here.


This pair has a similar high rise and relaxed fit through the hip and thighs as the Dad Short, however is shorter at a 4 inch inseam. This one also comes in an even shorter inseam – if that’s your vibe. These ones have gone viral, and it’s easy to see why. They are extremely flattering and I love the distressed details on them. I am wearing my true to size 30. Shop them here.

The last of the denim options are the HIGH RISE 90s CUTOFF SHORT.

The shortest of the bunch at 3.25 inch inseam. These are looser in the hip and thigh and almost have a slight flare out at the bottom. They are a high rise but less so than the other two – perfect for my shorter torso girlies! I am wearing my true to size 30. Shop them here.


When I tell you these are the PERFECT SHORT. They’re so comfortable, flattering, and just everything you want in a summer bottom. I have 3 colors already, and honestly I’m about to order more. They have a high rise, 4 inch inseam, elastic waist, pockets and are fully lined. I love that you can wear these over swimwear to the pool or dress them up and wear them on date night with a bodysuit and a blazer. These are a 15/10 for me. I am wearing my true to size Large. If you are in between sizes, I’d recommend sizing down. Shop them here.


These are by far the most elevated of the bunch. If your work allows shorts, these are the ones you’re going to want to add to cart. They have the highest rise and a 4.5 inch inseam. They feature a pleat in the front, are fully lined and have a slight flare out at the bottom. I am wearing my true size 30. If you are in between sizes, I would size up in these especially for the waist. Shop them here.

SO what do you think? Which pair is your favorite?!
