Who makes the shortest womens' cycling shorts?

My girlfriend is having a hard time finding shorts with an inseam shorter than 8 inches. We have found a few 6 inch inseams but nothing shorter. Anyone have any ideas in regards to a brand or a website that has quality, serious cycling shorts with a shorter insteam?

Triathletes wear shorter shorts.

You occasionally see them. My wife got a pair, but promptly sent
them back. Short legs ride up on you. Nice idea that
doesn't cut it in practise.

Plus isn't it partially the idea that the lycra glides by each other on your legs instead of the friction and pain of your skin?

Although I've never measured mine, I like the Shebeest SS shorts because they're shorter than the hemlines of my regular walking-around shorts. The SS stands for Super Short. I tan very easily (the Asian in me) and I get the most funny-looking farmer tans, especially during the summer, so at least the SS shorts keeps the tanline underneath my regular shorts. And I've never had a problem with the shorts riding up nor pinching my thighs.
