Usually short girls are supposed to wear short shorts to elongate their legs. Girls with thick legs are supposed to wear bermuda shorts but bermuda shorts are supposed to make short girls look shorter.
I have worn bermuda shorts, and although they are cute, they remind me of the days when I was about 20 pounds heavier, so to have to wear them makes me feel a bit defeated.
Shorts are weird for me, they are either too short and emphasize my thighs, or they are a bit too long and make them look stumpy, or they are full on bermuda shorts.
Lately I've been wearing either jeans, flowy skirts, or pencil skirts to just avoid the whole thighs thing. I want shorts, real shorts, but I have no idea what ones to wear, or if I can even wear them.

well in my experiance (im also 5'1" and stockier but my thighs are a bit different because my knees touch and the top of my thighs touch and I have a gap in about mid thigh but the point is they are still thick) and I think bermudas make me look fat and another girl who has the same body type as me look fat also so I either wear denim capris (the ones under the knee with the cuff) or shorts with a 5 inch inseam (give or take an inch) though I have 1 pair of 3.5 in inseam shorts and they look pretty good but they are looser fitting. beware really short and tight shorts though! they also make you look bigger try old navy shorts they actually have non booty shorts! (such a rare thing) also try a darker color don't wear white shorts no1 can pull those off...
