Women's Curvy Shorts
Feel good in Curvy Shorts from American Eagle! These shorts are made for curves with more room through the hip and thigh, making them an easy pick if you deal with waistband gapping (when your shorts fit everywhere but are too loose at the waist, creating a gap), or sizing up. Curvy shorts come in all your go-to styles like Mom, short short, and midi, but feature extra fabric at the hip and thigh for total comfort!

Just like our Curvy jeans, curvy shorts come in different options so you can have the look you love. Try Curvy Mom shorts if you love the classic, vintage-inspired vibes of the ‘80s and ‘90s. They come in classic stretch denim or our new Strigid fabric, meaning they’re rigid in the front and stretchy in the back of the shorts. Curvy short shorts are an easy legs-for-days pick in summer, and curvy midi shorts create that “juuuuust right” kind of vibe with a slim fit and slightly longer inseam.

The best thing about curvy shorts? They come in all your fave fabrics like our softest, stretchiest, never-loses-its-shape Next Level Stretch and everyday stretch. Choose denim shorts in light washes with ripped deets for ultimate summer style, or go classic with dark indigo hues and non-distressed details! Plus, they look amazing with your go-to summer women’s shirts & tops, too. Try a Curvy Mom short with a crop top for your next concert outfit, or create a cute ‘fit with black Curvy shorts paired with a blouse or button-up shirt for your next date.

No matter what your summer style is, we have you covered with tons of options for women’s shorts and skirts! From relaxed and baggy shorts to iconic summer staples like short shorts and long shorts, you’ll always have a fit that’s right for you at AE. And when temps drop back down in the fall, we make jeans & pants in the same comfy fabrics and on-trend fits you love.
