Maternity Fashion – Shorts for Real Women

This weekend I went shopping with my mom for some new maternity shorts and I was shocked at how many SUPER SHORT shorts there were. I don’t think I’m overly conservative in my dress but I don’t want shorts that are so short my butt cheeks are hanging out. So here is a collection of acceptable length shorts designed for real women, not models.
In my opinion I think anything shorter than a 4″ inseam is too short for anyone.

A few of my Favorite Maternity Shorts
Maternity Chino Bermuda Short from Shade clothing. I like that these are Bermuda shorts but aren’t super long. I also love the rolled cuff look. They are simple but have enough embellishment to up the cute factor. $39 is about the top of my acceptable shorts price.
These Secret Fit Belly Cuffed Maternity Bermuda Shorts from Motherhood are also a good length and I like the denim look. For a limited time they are $19.99 but regularly they are $34.98.
If you want something a little short than Bermuda Shorts check out these Maternity Stretch Cotton Walking Short from Loft. At $49.50 they are a bit more than I usually spend but look super comfortable and versatile.
I love these Cotton Poplin Shorts from Seraphine. They are a nice mid-length and perfect for a warm summer day outside. At $47 they are a little pricy but could be a good investment since they are so versatile. 
For a splurge these Maternal America Crosshatch shorts from BellaBlu are a super cute. They are lightweight and have a band that can be cover the whole tummy or be folded over.  At $79 they are definitely not in my budget but given a little extra cash they may have to find their way into my cart!
Also, slightly above my budget are these Olian Twill Maternity Shorts from Appleseed Boutique. I love the buttons and even though the length is a little shorter it’s still acceptable. They cost $68
