High-waist shorts also work for pears Smile Speaking out of my own experience.

What do you do if you are athletic, have short legs, and are curvy???

by gen_gen11 on 8/23/2012 6:08:35 PM


At my school shorts have to be longer than finger tip, which is hard for me ex: I'm taller than my mom and my finger tip is half a finger below her. I have a really hard time finding shorts (Basketball shorts can be too ''short'') and the ac is broke 90% of the time so it's really hot in class. Are there any shorts you can suggest for school?


Hey chicky! Since I don't know your body type, I can't suggest any shorts in particular, but why not get adventurous and make your own cut offs before school starts?  Also, maxi skirts and dresses look great on tall girls!  They'll keep you cool if you can find ones that are long enough.  xoxo

Hey Selassie, you're too young for that right now girl. When the time is right it will happen. If you find yourself focusing on it, do other things to occupy your time. Pick up a hobby so your mind will be on something else. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I want to have sex so badly what should I do? I'm also 11 and my parents are a little concerned about me having a boyfriend. I don't have a boyfriend anyway.

Thanks for answering my other question! But I have another one.
I keep getting my discharge and I get all the signs about getting my period. But I never do get it. I've had the signs for about a year. It's getting really annoying because once my mom was coming home so my friend I decided to clean my room so she could sleep over. She was bringing my laundry downstairs and saw my underwear. Before it didn't bother me, but the discharge dried so it looks gross. My friend screamed. It was so embarrassing. What can I do because I'm having a church trip coming up soon and they assigned a group of boys to do the laundry for everyone since they got in trouble!


Hey chicky! Bring a few panty liners with you (since you don't have your period, borrow a couple from your mom).  Wear them and they'll catch the discharge instead of your underwear.  If you don't want to do that, encourage the girls to keep their underwear with them and not let the boys do it.  Who wants their underwear in the hands of boys, anyway?  That way, you can keep your underwear in a bag and you don't need to hand it over to the guys.  Good luck! xoxo

I TOTALLY know how you feel, my thighs are bigger, but stores think that just because you have big thighs it means that you have to have a HUGE waist

by snoopyrocks on 7/24/2012 11:42:51 AM


I just moved. I'm going to be going to a new school. Like others, I need a cool outfit. My facts:
I'm 5'3 and 11. I'll be 12.
I'm like a ruler bit with thicker thighs because I do soccer.
I've been described as a hipster-styled girl.
I'll be in 7th grade
I want something to show that I'm different than any other newbie. And that I have great style.I have a smaller bust: 32A
So, help?


I suggest you look at Urban Outfitters. It's a bit more expensive but they have some really unique clothing that might be perfect for you. Good luck! xoxo kerra

im pretty slim, my family has big bones so im a little bulkier but NOT fat, i watch my calories and run, etc. but my thighs are HUGE! my mom says they're not that bad but im just really self-concious so is there a way to lose weight in your thighs?? ive been wearing jeans all summer i dont know what to do! will people make fun of me if i wear shorts?? plz help

Hey girl!

It seems like your thighs are probably not as bad as you're making them out to be. Running is great for your thighs. Also, you should do lunges or squats. But the best thing you can do is to eat healthy and not worry!

Ok, so I just moved, going to a brand new school with brand new people an no uniform! Smile I want it find the perfect outfit for me that's super cute and makes a great first impression (but I deffinetly don't want the outfit to say "I'm trying to hard, or I think I'm better than you") Is that crazy? As for my fashion and style goes toward just about anything.
I'm a tall girl going into the eight grade. I guess you could say I was curvy? My top is bigger (32B) and I have a small waist. My thighs are a little thicker (since I'm a runner). I'm just looking for a great outfit for my bod.
THNKYOU SOO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP! I <3 you all so much your so kind and helpful THANKYOU

Hey girl!  A new school is the perfect start for a cool new wardrobe.  For a fun outfit, I would suggest colored skinny jeans with a silky top, a def a belt to emphasize your waist and some cute sandals. Have fun and be yourself with your style! xxoo

@candyprincess97: they do put stuff for curvy girls, almost all the time. they have it on this one too. in the june/july issue they had a section for swimsuits for curvy girls. Maybe you just haven't seen their articles or how-to's for curvy girls.

by Shannon.Smiles on 7/18/2012 6:43:15 PM


What about for girls that are more than pears like kinda on the pudgy side? I love wearing shorts but cant find any besides my skorts and basketball shorts that look good on me. Please help Im not good with fashion.


hey! I'd say go with the curvy selection, I think that would be very flattering. good luck!

by booktechgeek97 on 7/16/2012 6:11:14 PM


i'm a cross between a pear and a petite(i'm skinny but i have curves) what kinda shorts should i get. also, my current shirts give me absolutely NO shape. they stretch over my curves, leaving me to look awkward and bigger waisted than i actually am!!! how do i fix this?!?? thanks Laughing


hey! try a wrap shirt with rouching to accentuate your waist. You could really pull off a basic short or something with a little color Smile

My mom doesnt let me wear shorties. NEVER. I have tried everything and i look amazing in them but my mom just wont let me. I really want to. I really do. Help please!! I live in FL and im the only one melting in my jeans Frown(((((

Hey girlie,

Have you talked to her and asked her why? If it's just the fact that you're showing too much skin, could you compromise on getting Bermuda shorts instead of short shorts? If not, you'll have to respect mom's decision and then work around it. Pair skinny jeans with open sandals and a colorful floral tank top. That way, you're showing a little skin and still dressing summery...while also working with mom's rules <3

I have reaaaallly long lengs and a ruler shape. I can never find a cute pair of shorts in a good length! I hate bermuda shorts and if they're too short my legs look really thin and spidery. All my shorts are cutoffs because I can make my own length.
What kind of shorts would look best on me and where could I find 'em?


Hey chica, There are lots of shorts between a bermuda short and a short short, so go online and look on any store you or your mom usually shop at. Try getting something a little looser in the leg to give you a little curve.  On the other hand, cutoffs are a great idea! They go with everything and they are a great way to repurpose old jeans!

I have asked questions b4, and I got Mod answers, but I wasn't alerted! this really bugs me, bcause I'll 4get that I asked anything and I never know the answer. why don't you send emails or even in-website alerts?

Well, babe, we answer a lot of questions every day, so it would be really hard for us to also send emails. It'd be cool to get the computer to do it for us, but that's just not something our techies have done yet. Sorry!

by katnip97 on 7/11/2012 4:55:37 PM


I loooooove the shorts for curvy and athletic. But I'm not allowed to wear shorts that show my thigh at all. Ugh! My mom is so strict with what I can wear. I've tried to change her mind like 97462949538917 times, but she just won't listen. It makes me so mad. I can't wait till I'm 18 so I can wear what I want to wear.

by Graciegang on 7/11/2012 3:50:36 PM


I'm glad I read that comment about girls with long legs. I'm only 5'4" and have the same inseem as my 6'0" tall brother. So I was looking here and was thinking, "Where are the Long Legs shorts?" then I read you say to another person all would work. now I am excited to try new jeans!

by silverroseart on 7/11/2012 3:01:21 PM


So let's say I were to ask a question ( which I am going to do), When I get an answer do I check back on this page or do I get an email or something?

Hey chica, you just check back on the page where you posted the question. When we approve it, our response will show up with your post.

I have a hard time getting shorts because I have really filled in legs and butt but I have a small stomach and no curves. It's so difficult!

by colorqueen101 on 7/11/2012 2:12:23 PM


My legs are really long. What kind of shorts should I wear. I feel awkward in bermudas because my knees are bony but pastel shorts make my legs look even longer. What should I do??

by kennidollballard on 7/11/2012 1:50:36 PM


Mod Mod Mod!
I think I have a pear shape (I got no boobs, but I've got nicely filled out hips and thighs and a really big butt.) but I really don't know. I'm only fourteen, and I'm 5'0 tall. I usually wear a size eleven or so. Do you know of a good type of shorts for me to wear? I think the article was a little too broad for me. I don't know if I should go with the pear shape flattering Aeropostale shorty shorts, or the Levi's for curves.. Help?? Smile thanks

Hey babe, go for the curvy Levi's, since they'll give your legs some length, too. Either shape will probably work for you, though, when you're trying to figure out what'll be best for your lower bod.

Help! Last Monday my braces bracket became loose and it is still caught on my wire. I couldn't get an appointment until tomorrow, and it has almost been two weeks! My toothe looks really strange and I think I might have tooth decay from having it loose for so long! I am really annoyed because I couldn't get an appointment until tomorrow because the ortho office took a whole week off for the 4th Frown. I think my tooth is now ruined , can they fix this?! It would have been fine if I went last week but now my tooth is ruined :c!

Hey chicky, don't worry - they'll get you all sorted out at your appointment. Cavities take a long time to form, so 2 weeks won't hurt ya. Just sit tight, and let those docs do what they do best.

MOD MOD MOD I am in love with high waisted shorts but I can't find the right size for me. I'm very short {about 4'9} and I have no curves. I shop at stores that have generally small sizes like Heritage or Charlotte Russe, but when it comes to jeans and shorts nothing there really fits. So do you happen to know any stores that have smalls sizes and high waisted shorts?

Hey girlie,

I'm 5'8" so I definitely shop for different sizes, but I've heard these stores are great for smaller pant sizes: JCPenney, Delia's, Abercrombie, Pac Sun, American Eagle,, or Hollister! <3

MOD, MOD ,MOD . Okay, this sounds a little gross but I will say it anyway. My knees and elbows have a lot of dead skin on them and I have NO IDEA how to get in off. Do you have any ideas how to? I've tried body scrubs but they don't work..

Hey girlie,

Not gross at all! Check out this article for the best tips - I know you're not asking about using a fake tan, but the part about preparing your skin (by exfoliating) will really help get rid of all those dead skin cells!

Hi so I have been a reader for a year now and am a subscriber. I read all of your articles, glue some of the coolest tips to my binder, and even would sneak a read in your magazine during my freshman year classes. But I am also a 4'11 biracial girl. I am spanish,white, and african american. I have noticed on your websites and magazines there aren't a lot of diversity. Not a lot of mixed girls or dark skinned or other races. I feel like if you write some articles on certain months like african american month and so forth. I still love your articles, but some tips don't apply to me. Like hair advice and certain outfits. I hope someone comments on this. Thnx for listening. Smile

Hey girl,

We really appreciate your feedback and totally hear what you're trying to say! We're always working hard to make sure our website/magazine works for girls of all ages/races/body types/backgrounds, so I'll pass along your comments to our editors <3 I know they'll love to hear your thoughts too. Thanks lovely!!

hey so lately everyone has been calling me tiny i see like little kids who are way taller than me and it really annoys me i want to be sooo tall! im 4'11 and done growing lol do you know of any good things about being short

Hey girlie,

Of course! Check these out:

And we know you have tonnnnss of awesome things about you that have nothing to do with you being short - because you're unique and you're YOU! Height doesn't define you! <3

by thepinkyyyyyyyyy on 7/10/2012 8:53:20 PM


hey so idk wat category i fit in my legs are toned but im also petite lol and i guess my legs are short and toned im 4'11 ya reallly short for my age since im like 16 lol

Hey girlie,

Body shape depends less on your height and more on your proportions - are you bigger around the hips? (< Pear shape) Or bigger around your boobs? (< Apple shape) Are you about the same on top and bottom with a defined waist in between? (< Hourglass) Or pretty straight up-and-down? (< Ruler) Smile

I think the curvy ones would be super cute on you Smile

hey! well think about your proportions, do you have round hips or straight? are you tall or short?

Okay so this year I gained 19 llbs, grew 4 inches, and am starting to fill in to a healthier weight. I don't know if it's normal to gain this much although last year my brother gained 26 llbs. Is this normal??


Hey! just so ya know, girls’ bodies change  a ton during the teen years and weight gain is normal.

MOD MOD MOD!! i'm moving over the summer, and i'm really nervous. i'm going into high school, so nobody's gonna know i'm new. i'm really shy, and awkward. how can i make friends really fast, so i don't have to sit alone, or feel left out?
also, i wanna start bringing a tote and a purse to school, instead of a backpack. is that a good idea, or not? and do you know any good places i can find some?


Hey! To make friends just be social. Sit with new people and talk to them. Start by introducing yourself and finding out about their interests and telling them yours. It may take a while or no time but trust me when I say if you keep trying to meet new people persistently you will make friends. I like carrying a purse, but I don't know if it's a replacement for a backpack. books can be he-vy. On the other hand, urban outfitters sell some really cute backpacks and there are definitely purse/backpack hybrids out there. But if you're still in the market for a handbag keep your eye out in thrift stores and target. It's also fun to decorate a simple canvas tote yourself. you can tie dye it or use a sponge and a stencil to paint your own design. get creative!

by TrendyGirl10 on 7/10/2012 4:57:09 PM


I just bought this uber cute tie! I'm usually pretty good, if I do say so myself, at putting together cute outfits... But this tie I just can't seem to figure out how to wear the tie in a cool, hip way that won't make me look too much like a business woman or a school girl. So it's been a bit difficult because it could easily look go either way, but I don't want it to look like I'm dressed up or like I'm wearing a school uniform. I want it to look almost casual but cute, maybe with some sort of graphic tee? I dunno! Help please!

Hey Girl--

To avoid the school girl look, don't pair it with a pleated skirt or anything uniform-looking. Try it with some denim cutoffs and a sheer top for a non-preppy look.

good luck!

This school year I really want to re-make my style. I used to really be into wearing hot pink, things with words (like "love") and graphic tees. Now I'm really more into more sophisticated, polished things. Any idea where I can find that kind of stuff?

Hey Girl--

Next time you go shopping, just look for clothes that fit the new look you have in mind. You can search online first for inspiration and ideas of which stores carry what clothing. Do you have a friend whose style you love? maybe you two can go shopping together and she can show you her favorite spots. 

good luck!

Today I have a church beach party, and I have to wear a one-piece. But I don't have one, so i have to wear a pretty dorky rashguard over my bikini. How can I make this a cute look????

Hey Girl--

That sounds like the perfect sporty girl look! Try pairing it with bold bottoms if you have any. Think Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush! 

good luck

Hey girl!

 Any of these short will look fab on your long legs. trust me!

by ayraify on 7/10/2012 1:41:38 PM


i can't use this i have long legs! U have nothing for tall girls!

Hey Girl--

With long legs you can pull of just about any shorts. lucky you!

simone s.

by Alexjusz11 on 7/10/2012 1:36:56 PM


I don't get this body types thing. What do they mean?

Hey Girl--

It just refers to shape and length of your legs. For instance, the shorts for "short legs" are those that would look best on girls with... short legs. The curvy leg shorts would look best of those girls with fuller legs, etc. 

good luck!!
