Dolphin Shorts: The Favorite Fashion Trend Of The ’80s Teenage Girls

Dolphin shorts or Dolfins are a specific style of unisex shorts for athletics. They are typically very short and were originally made from nylon with contrasting binding, side slits, and rounded corners, with a waistband at the top. A style popular in the 1980s.

The name is a corruption of Dolfin, the American company that first produced this style of shorts in the 1980s. Due to their shortness, they are sometimes identified as a form of hotpants.

These cool snaps that captured teenage girls in their Dolphin shorts from the 1980s.
