Our Staple short is maternity-friendly

Stay comfy and covered through maternity and beyond.

The Staple

All our shorts have 4-way stretch and won’t bag or sag with wear, a cotton crotch and are sweat-wicking.

✓ Comfy against growing belly ✓ Flexible, elastic-free waistband ✓ Stretches up to 2x its size 
without sagging ✓ Seamless, tagless & itch-free ✓ Ultra-soft against surgical
scars & tender areas

It’s all in the details.

Our comfortable, super-soft waistband is designed with a growing baby bump in mind — no pinching, binding or rolling down. Flexible, stretchy and elastic-free, it’s made from the same soft fabric as the shorts and stretches comfortably with your growing baby bump without digging in.
We know that hormones can be all over the place during and after pregnancy, sometimes causing uncomfortable hot flashes. The hi-tech performance fabric we use is ultra-breathable and sweat-wicking to help you stay dry and feel fresh down there all day long.
Comfort is the main priority when caring for yourself during pregnancy and for a newborn. Our shorts feature a wide inner thigh panel with non-abrasive flat seams — strategically placed outside of the inner thighs — that don’t rub together when you walk, allowing thighs to glide.
The last thing you want to think about is adjusting your outfit. We’ve thoughtfully designed our leg bands to lay flat against the skin without squeezing or leaving marks behind — and without using silicone grippers or pinchy elastics.
All of our shorts feature a knit-in cotton crotch that keeps things feeling fresh down there and gives your bits room to breathe. Go commando if you want to — our shorts can be worn with or without underwear.
Not too thick and not too sheer, our buttery soft fabric is deliciously soft against the skin for a lightly supportive, comfortable wear. They also act as a protective barrier between surgical scars and other abrasive materials you may be wearing.

“They’re incredibly versatile: They come in multiple lengths, sizes, and colors, and I can wear them for more coverage, a smoother look under skirts, or on their own for sleeping or lounging around the house.”

“They give me a smooth, clean line and work well with both fitted and roomy skirts and dresses — and since they're breathable, I won't overheat even on those days when the air feels like a blanket of humidity.”

“Today, Thigh Society leads a category of products it invented.”

“An incredibly lightweight and breathable base layer, these shorts physically prevent the skin of your thighs from ever actually making contact.”

“They may look like a shapewear short, but they don’t act as shapewear, and definitely don’t fit snug like shapewear.”

“As soon as I put on the anti-chafing shorts, I immediately knew they’d be a game changer.”

“Thigh Society allows you the freedom to wear what you want and being comfortable in your own skin.”

When it got hot I needed something to wear that would prevent thigh chafe, fit over my belly and feel comfortable without undies. Sized up my usual order and bingo!

I can’t handle anything tight on my body during pregnancy, but I’m wearing flowy dresses in my third trimester during this hot summer and these shorts are EVERYTHING!

I spent months trying different maternity options and nothing has been as comfortable as these shorts. I have thick thighs that all shorts tend to ride up on, but not these.

I am six months postpartum and still look pregnant. I was looking for a product exactly like this when the weather started warming and wearing maternity jeans all the time was getting impossibly hot. I’m thrilled with this product!

FAQs

These are buttery soft and stretch to twice their size without bagging or sagging, making them perfect to accommodate a growing belly during pregnancy and beyond.

Thigh Society shorties are totally bump-friendly — they don’t compress you or suck you in like shapewear. Instead, they’re a lightly smoothing, breathable, sweat-wicking essential you’ll reach for again and again.

Flexible and stretchy, our waistband is made from the same fabric as the shorts, just double-folded and sewn-in. It stretches to your curves, never cuts into them, and is designed to stay in place without rolling down. The waistband is like the Loch Ness Monster: you’ll doubt it really exists.

Our shorts stretch up to 2x their size without bagging or sagging, making them perfect for your pre-and-post-partum journey. We recommend sticking with your regular size for the first trimester, and sizing up for the second and third. Then you can continue wearing both once your baby is here!

Our shorts are made from the highest quality yarns that are soft and silky-smooth against the skin — even surgical scars. The Staple short acts as a light barrier, helping protect scars and stitches from snagging against your clothes.
