With hemlines higher than ever, we are constantly worrying about keeping ourselves decent when sitting on the subway or walking on a breezy day. Luckily, there are more adorable boyshorts than ever to keep ourselves covered, comfy and cute!

To avoid a peek-a-boo panic, put away the thong and try something with a little more coverage and an invisible fit, like the Hanky Panky Stretch Lace Boy Pant, $32, at

Want some pizzazz? The contrasting colors of the Mesh Boyshort by OnGossamer, $16, at are so cute, it’s no wonder that Hayden Panettiere and Kristen Bell are already fans of the line!

The frilly fabric of Honeydew Intimates’ Mesh Gingham Rumba Short , $16, at is a sweet summer option in six candy colors. You can also pick up the popular style in prints like hearts or skulls! Drew Barrymore and Eva Longoria love wearing Honeydew Intimates’ styles.

And we love the Stretch Cotton Girlshort, $9, from and Forever 21’s Antoinette Boyshort, $5, for style with a slim price tag!

But they have a seam down the middle! Very uncomfortable looking.

How is this a way to be more modest when it’s okay to wear clothes that flash your undies?

Andrea on

Totally agree Emily. If you are wearing something short enough to be able to see your underware, how are you caring about covering things up??? (see Britney Spears about his one,lol) :D

I do not understand how you can put the word modest miniskirts and boy shorts in the same sentence. When will we become petrified with the trash that has become trendy. Most “decent minded” women would not wear anything that would reveal their decency and constantly worrying about keeping themselves decent when sitting on the subway or walking on a breezy day. Get real!
