How do I put my thunder thighs in some cute shorts?

I'm a fairly petite lady, but I have disproportionately large thighs and butt. Summertime is upon us and I'd love to wear some nice structured shorts (instead of my usual athletic style) once in a while. Fit is an issue. Any recommendations?

A little more info: I'm 5'4 and a size 4 usually, but this all depends on the cut of the particular item (my waist is more like a size 2, but my butt and thighs tend towards a 6 or 8 -- Joe's Honey jeans in a size 27 fit perfectly). Something like these
is what I'd like to wear, but I've yet to find a style or brand that can accommodate my body. All the shorts I've tried that fit my butt and/or thighs gap like crazy in the waist.
I know bermudas are often suggested for big thighs, but I really dislike them, so those are out.
