The Southwest is sweltering this summer. Temperatures have been hovering in the triple digits all week with no relief in sight. Shorts are a good way to beat the heat, but many women (and men) are uncomfortable exposing their less than perfect bodies in shorts. No one wants to expose their problem areas to view.

Get rid of those annoying problem areas with Scottsdale CoolSculpting, the amazing new way to get rid of excess body fat without surgery. CoolSculpting targets and freezes unwanted fat cells, creating a slim, shapely new you! (Click here to visit our online CoolSculpting photo gallery and see the results for yourself.)

While you’ll notice an immediate improvement from CoolSculpting, full results may take one to three months as it takes time for the body to eliminate dead fat cells. While you’re waiting, use these tips to choose shorts that match your body type:

  • If you have a chubby tummy, the long leg of Bermuda shorts has an elongating effect that draws attention away from your middle. Vertical stripes and empire waistbands also help camouflage a thick middle.
  • If you’re light on top with heavy hips and thighs, look for classic shorts with a relaxed fit and longer leg. Boyfriend roll-ups or A-line cuts in solid colors are a good choice.
  • Balance wider shoulders and a tiny waist with Bermuda shorts in bold prints. Look for shorts with high waists to prevent gaping.
