this season ought to be fired. I finally broke down and went shopping because the few pair I own have been around so long they're looking pretty ratty. I found plenty of women's shorts that are so short they barely cover the privates and plenty that were so long they might as well have been called pants. A bunch with cuffs to roll up a few times or elastic drawstring at the cuff. But plain shorts with at least part elastic waistband were hard to come by. I finally found some. I've never shopped for myself in the men's department before. I can't say the fit is exquisite but they cover the right parts and are the right fabric weight so at least I have something. Good thing I wasn't swimsuit shopping or else I'd really be ranting.
