Finding pants — and more importantly, shorts — can be difficult when you have a booty. Between issues like thigh chaffing, fabric riding up and that awkward gap that exists, you may be ready to throw in the towel.

The reality is not all shorts are equal. When you’re curvier (whether that’s having a round derriere or thicker thighs), it’s important to search for shorts that have longer inseams, that sit closer on your waist instead of your hips (sorry, low-cut shorts), and that have flexible cuffs that won’t suffocate your legs.

Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry. Here are a few options that can help you out.
