    I voted "no" because the only place I wear them is at the beach. I wear sundresses and miniskirts with tank tops. I HATE how I look in shorts.

    Now, why do you look worse in shorts than you do in miniskirts?

    Yes-at the beach or at home.

    I have no idea. I also won't wear any trousers/pants except for jeans. I just like skirts better, and think I look a lot better in them. I know they fit a heck of a lot better than shorts or pants.

    Same here! I have long legs, so most shorts either look ridiculously short (like a 16 year old would wear) or they are too long like a grandmother would wear. I have a couple pair of shorts but I rarely wear them. They are just terribly unflattering on me. Maybe to do yard work, but that’s it. I mostly wear skirts in the summer.

    Thank you, dearie! I have the long-legged issue as well.

    The only pair of shorts that I wear at the beach were a pair of my dad's old shorts. :D I LOVE the heck out of those things. And they were the only pair he owned (apparently the hating shorts thing runs in the family... :lol: ).

    HATE shorts. Sometimes I try to wear cutoffs, but even those look stooopid!

    I only wear shorts for working out, the beach etc. In summer I would much rather wear a sundress or a skirt than shorts, and I hate skorts too. I just feel too casual, cute-sy and childish in them I think - I am petite and I like to wear heels, and heels with shorts is just not my thing.

    I rarely wear shorts, so I voted no. Not so much because I hate the way they look on me, but mostly because I never find any that I like. Like Mazey said, they're either knee-length or so short I think my ass cheeks hang out, and nothing in between looks good.

    I looooooooove cute summer skirts and dresses though.

    I also have horribly long legs, and they are very boney. If they had some definition to them I would wear shorts. But I just wear them to workout and in the yard. I am a jeans person year round. :D

    I only wear shorts in the gym. I do not walk down the street to the gym w/them on either. I detest the way that I look in them.

    There are VERY few people who can wear shorts and look good in them. You have to have super, super skinny legs otherwise you have the whole "shorts getting bunched up between your legs thing" throwing the whole thing off. NOT a good look. Mini skirts are more flattering.

    I don't wear shorts, but I'm amazed at how many people are saying they don't either. I thought I was the only one. I used to look good in them when I was younger, but as I've aged my knees don't look so good anymore.

    So even with my fat, pasty white legs, a mini skirt will look better? :lol:

    In the summer I wear skirts or sundresses all the time. I find sundresses to be cooler than shorts.

    No, but I plan to this summer.

    They look terrible on me. I only wear them when I have to.
    Keep an open mind and an open heart. Don't take life too seriously - it doesn't last forever, you know. And may I remind you for the last time, keep your crayons sharp, keep your sticky tape untangled and always put the top back on your markers.

    Nope, I wear skirts in leiu of shorts. I have a bunch of comfy skirts that are actually lighter than any pair of shorts I'd ever find.

    Ok, dumb question, and something I probably should have learned in grade school. How do you keep your underwear from showing? Or when you say "short skirts," do you mean just above the knee?

    No, I mean short skirts. Not mini skirts where my butt is hanging out, but just short skirts. As far as underwear, I never wear a thong. I'll wear cute hipster undies. I don't wear them to work, just out and about or when I'm hanging out with my friends so my underwear being "seen" isn't really an issue.

    When I say short skirt I mean half way between your knees and "the place you don't want people to see"..... If you know what I mean.. :lol:

    I try to wear panties the same color as the skirt unless it's a white skirt and then you wear nude and you just have to be careful when bending down, getting in and out of cars etc.

    I thought I was the only person who didn't wear shorts. I hate the way they bunch up, and I hate the way the backs of my knees look. I wear linen slacks and lightweight cargo pants in the summer, and the Texas heat hasn't killed me yet.

    Not just no, but HELL no! I looked adorable in them when I was 19 but that's been a little while . . . .

    Skirts are a much better choice for me. But no mini's. They say if you wore mini's the first time they were in fashion, you got no business wearing them now. I agree.

    I only wear shorts for exercise. I remember hearing a stylist on Oprah say that most women should not wear shorts - they don't really do much to enhance a woman's figure....

    I love shorts. I wear them to coach soccer, run, do yoga, to work in the yard, go shopping, anywhere I can. I don't do Daisy Dukes, but decent lengths without entering Grannie-ville. I have long, lean legs and they are pretty much the girliest thing about me. For the record, I'm 34, but look much younger thanks to sunscreen, sunblock and sunscreen......

    i only wear shorts when working out.

    i have rarely, possibly never, seen a woman wearing shorts...who looked good in them.

    if someone finds a picture of woman who looks good in shorts (even a model) please post.
