How to make shorts smaller around the thighs?


Shorts are an essential part of summer fashion. This is because they are versatile, provide comfort, and they are perfect for showing off your legs, especially when you are doing exercise at the gym. For that reason, many people want to know how to make shorts smaller around the thighs to feel fresh and show the entire legs. 

Luckily, we are going to show you some ways to make shorts smaller around the thighs.


Wash and dry the shorts

If the shorts are made of cotton or any other natural fabric, they may shrink in the wash. So, the first thing to do is wash your shorts in hot water and then put them in the dryer on high heat.

This will cause them to shrink slightly, making them tighter around the thighs. Just remember that this method is not foolproof, and it is possible that you don’t get the expected result at first. 



Add elastic to the shorts

If you feel that your shorts are too big around the thighs, you can add elastic to the waistband to make them fit better. 

In order to do this, you have to cut a piece of elastic the same length as the waistband and sew it onto the inside of the waistband. Make sure to stretch the elastic as you sew it so that it fits snugly.


Create a cuff

If your shorts are too wide around the thighs but fit well in the waist, you can create a cuff to make them fit better. Simply fold up the hem of the shorts and sew it in place. 

This will reduce the size of the short making it tighter around the thighs. You can also add any type of decoration to create shorts with your own style. 



Choose shorts with smaller inseam

If you want to show your legs but you don’t want to make any change on the shorts, you can try with shorts with 5" or 5.5” inseam. These shorts can fit tighter around the thighs while giving you freedom of movement. 

Bermies has many models of shorts with diferent inseams that you can try on while looking amazing at the same time. 



Wear shorts with compression liner

Shorts with compression liner are one of the best options that we have for you. Their shorts come with an inner liner that fits to your thighs while the rest of the shorts provide you freedom of movement. You can go to the gym, jog or hyking  and show off your legs to everyone.

Try a different style

If you've tried all of the above methods and still can't get your shorts to fit properly, it might be time to try a different style. 

7” inseam shorts can be a great option for those who want to show off their legs without exposing too much skin. Loose-fitting shorts can also be a comfortable option for those who don't want to feel constricted.
