Are you struggling to find flattering size 12 shorts for women? Well, I was too and decided to buy a bunch from Amazon and have myself a good old fashioned Amazon haul. (Ok, mini haul).
For ages, I hated my legs and wouldn’t wear anything that showed them.
They rub together.
I’ve never had thigh gap?
But you know what?
I look heckin’ fine and I’m ready to try on some shorts, look cute and be comfortable.
I tried on 5 pairs of shorts from Amazon, and at the end I also showed a pair of shorts I recently bought from Walmart during a summer emergency situation. Below are the links and names for all the products:

Size 12 Shorts for Women // Amazon Haul: Here are my thoughts…
First, I’ll start by mentioning what kinds of shorts I chose and why. You might have read my recent post about trying out (and loving) a minimalist wardrobe, but this minimalist trial turned into several permanent dress code rules for me.
When I choose clothes now, I only shop for black, white, blue, orange and some purples. I also stick with classic shapes and styles, since those are the things I reach for despite having a lot of other variety in my wardrobe.
Women’s Super Comfy Bermuda Walking Short
These size 12 shorts for women were by far my favorite. I got them in the color “clay” and found them to be pretty true to size.
They didn’t have any stretch in them, and at first they felt a bit loose…but I loved how they looked and when I re-watched the try-on videos I was like YEEEESSSS GURL.
I thought these looked stylish. They also felt a lot nicer looking than a pair of denim shorts, which is usually what I opt for.
REKUCCI Women’s Ease Into Comfort Stretchable Pull-On Short
These were interesting. I liked that they were pull on and that they were stretchy. I ordered them in a large and I honestly wish I’d sized up one size, because they were a tad uncomfortable.
That said, my husband thought they looked great and he has picky clothing opinions, so I was surprised.
PHOENISING Women’s Sexy Stretchy Fabric Hot Pants
I liked these too, but I think I should have gotten a 14 instead of a 12. These were distressed denim shorts, and while I don’t own any other distressed denim, I kind of loved these.
I don’t think I loved them enough to order another size, though—especially since I already have a pair of denim shorts and I’m still sticking with a minimal wardrobe.
Baleaf Women’s Active Yoga Lounge Bermuda Shorts
These were very strange, but very comfortable!
Premium Ultra Soft Harem Shorts with Pockets
I kept these as sleep shorts, and honestly, I think that’s all they’re good for. They are super comfortable though!
