sports Shorts are a garment worn over the pelvic area, circling the waist and splitting to cover the upper part of the legs, sometimes extending down to the knees but not covering the entire length of the leg. They are called “shorts” because they are a shortened version of trousers, which cover the entire leg, but not the foot.

Nowadays, many boys and women wear boxers, boxer briefs, compression shorts, swim briefs, or other standard underwear, although jockstraps are now making a comeback.
