Definition of boy shorts
: women's briefs with a low waist and with leg openings at the top of the thigh that are cut parallel to the waist My favorites … are the boy shorts. I find that they're long enough to give me the coverage that feels right for me and the aesthetic I'm looking for, but they're short enough that they don't bunch up under pants or ride up throughout the day.— Jen Gushue
