A Cheeky Guide to Booty Shorts


Booty shorts

Booty shorts: the audacious article of clothing that says, “I’ve got buns, hon, and I’m not afraid to show ‘em!” Whether you love them or side-eye them, there’s no denying the cultural impact of these cheeky little things.

So, if you’ve been wondering about their history or where to strut your stuff in them, buckle up (or should we say button up?), because we’re diving deep.

A Brief, Barely-There History

The history of booty shorts is as cheeky as the garment itself. The 60s and 70s saw a bold shift in fashion, with hemlines rising faster than temperatures in summer. Thank the hot pants trend for that! They were the rebellious answer to conservative dresses and became the embodiment of women’s liberation. The booty shorts we know today are essentially the younger, even more audacious sibling of hot pants.

But, as with everything in fashion, they’re cyclic. Booty shorts had their moments in the sun, then took a backseat, and then came back with a vengeance. Thanks, pop stars and fitness influencers!
