While many of us have multiple pairs of denim cutoffs, it's easy to single out a style that's better than the rest. Whether it's because they emphasize your curves or fit snug around the waistband with zero gaping, these styles make you feel most confident (and likely earn you endless compliments) because they were made for your body type — even if you cut them yourself during a DIY.

It's time to determine why these shorts have become your go-to, and what style you should be consistently looking for. Whether you're plus size, curvy, or petite, there is a silhouette that will fit you perfectly, and it will serve as a solid foundation to your outfits all summer long.

We tapped denim experts at Levi's, AGOLDE, Madewell, Paige, Mother Denim, Mavi, Citizens of Humanity, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Eloquii to get a breakdown of the bestsellers onsite, and also to explore distinctive cuts that appeal to many different customers. The shorts you'll see ahead are not only top rated, but they come in a wide range of sizes and washes — and they ring in at a variety of price points.

Ahead, the best denim shorts for every fit concern.
