Abercrombie Denim Shorts & Bodysuits – How to choose the right length

I don’t know about you, but trying to buy shorts online can a little overwhelming!  All the sizing options – short, long, petite, regular, curvy, boyfriend, mom, mid-rise, high-rise, 3″, 3.5″, 4″  and then you add the different washes and distressing or no distressing – all these options make my head spin and just give up!  And, then you have bodysuits with are trending again this year, which can be a tough fit, too!  Not everyone has the same torso length after all. 

Well, that’s where I come in!  I am here to hopefully help you narrow it down a little.  For reference, I am 5’1″ and typically a  size 0 or 25 in bottoms and xs in tops and I do have a longer torso for my height.

Let’s Compare

Mom Shorts Curve Love High-Rise Regular vs 4″

For this try-on, I chose to focus on Mom Shorts in high-rise (the most popular rise right now) and the Curve Love line (gives you more room in the hip and thigh).

Both of these shorts are the Mom shorts from the Curve Love line in size 25.  The pair on top is regular and the bottom pair is the 4″ version.  

Comparing the XS and Small Seamless Crewneck Tank Bodysuits

I have a longer torso, so I always have to order 2 sizes in bodysuits and one-piece swimsuits to test them out. By the looks of it, there is not that much difference between the two sizes. I ended up keeping the XS in this style, so I would say it runs TTS and go with your normal size in tops.

Let’s take a look at the shorts side-by-side

These are all Mom Shorts High-rise Curve Love shorts. The two on the left are the regular length and the two on the right are the 4″. If you would like to see the Tryon, head to my Instagram highlights.

Fit – these all run TTS. The leg opening is not tight and not too wide, it’s just right.

Thoughts – I feel that if you are petite like me (5’1″) then I feel the regular length is a more flattering fit. If you are taller (5’4″ and up) then the longer length would work for you.

Puff-Sleeve Hoodie – on sale!

LOVE!!! I tried this sweatshirt on in the store and it was instant love! Did I need another sweatshirt? NO! But, this one is so cozy and I love the fun sleeves and cropped fit for summer. It’s on sale and comes in several colors! It runs tts, but I sized up to a small for an oversized fit. It’s the perfect summer sweatshirt for cool mornings and evenings.

Scuba Sweater Dress

First, this dress is way to short for me! I ordered the small petite and I am going to try the XS regular and I am hoping it will be the perfect fit. This dress is well made and flattering. It is the perfect dress for so many occasions! It will make a fabulous addition to your closet!

  1. Oh Holly, I am so incredibly happy you did this post! Not only is it nice to know what bodysuits work but I struggle with the denim shorts thing, they’re either too short or too long and I really like the idea of a 4 inch version. Thank you for always bringing up the best my sweet friend!

  2. I love those skirts, need a pair too! And puff sleeves! How could we ever have not had them. Hope to see you on my Fancy Friday link up party.
