My short are just that,shorts, not these shorts I see that go past the knees, these to me are not shorts, most of my shorts are cotton, soft, thin cotton. inseam about two inches. about three inches above my knees standing and about six sitting down.I have a few mesh short that I dare only wear when i am walking my dog or getting gas where no one will see me for long periods of time not shy just don't want to get arrested. I would say I am average down below. I have never had any part floop out. But of course I do not sit with my legs spread as to give someone a peek. That's my two cents for now.
