These rank as some of the best mini shorts you will get - striking colours and shiny (I have the black with red border). They are cut in such a way to be both low-rise but also to cover a more normal size Western build, so no crack is exposed. They can be worn outdoors. I think they could be ideal beach wear - maybe even at the gym. Also can worn under jeans/a suit. Great fit, great material and very eye-catching.
