Ok, I'm new so please be nice! I just had a minor breakdown in a shop changing room because I tried on a pair of shorts. It feels really silly reading that back but I'm sure a lot of you have had the same experience! Anyway. Rather than feeling sorry for myself I thought I'd ask for style advice on the subject - I'm 32 and I refuse to go through the rest of my life not being able to wear shorts in summer! I've been learning to embrace my big behind (it's taken me a while to get used to big bums being kinda fashionable now, having grown up in the Kate Moss era) but I'm still having problems learning to love my legs. I carry all my weight on my bottom half, so I have big ankles/calves/thighs but a Keira Knightley chest. I feel disproportionate and I have no idea what shorts style will work on me - I'm wary of looking either frumpy and middle aged or like mutton dressed as lamb if I get it wrong! Any pear shaped ladies have some advice?
