Expand your horizons -- shorts don't have to be super short and tight to be fashionable. High-waisted mom shorts are comfortable and can emphasize the smaller part of your waist. Girls with thicker legs also benefit from mom shorts being a little looser. This helps with the illusion of slimming down. Maybe this don't is cheating but don't be afraid to bulk up on jewelry. I would wear a bunch of different rings, stack the bangles high, and clunky heels.
