If you are short

Cropped knee length shorts that go under the knee are to be avoided at all cost, as they will make you look shorter. Irrespective of your height, shorts hitting your midway are the most flattering. To appear longer while wearing shorts, choose a high-waisted pair with short seam and pair with heels to accentuate your height.

If you are curvy

You should show off your curves, however when it comes to shorts, you should choose one that enhances your figure and doesn’t make you look bulkier. The cut is crucial for you. Choose a short of mid-rise style, which isn’t too tight. Look for the one with pleats and a belted waistband to highlight your best assets.  Dark colors are great especially for small chested women wearing a light top.
