Frequently Asked Questions

We know, right? It’s partly because of the clever construction, partly because of the first-rate fabric blend and partly because it supports your body without feeling constricting. Plus, IT HAS A POCKET.

We’re glad you asked. Think of them as a combination between an old-school slip, a boxer brief and a bike short: They give you coverage under short or too-sheer outfits, stop your inner thighs from trying to start a forest fire, and light smoothing with no VPL (the word “panties” weirds us out, too). Plus, the knit-in cotton-rich crotch means you can wear them without underwear if you want, eliminating the need for an extra layer.

Thigh Society shorts don’t compress you or suck you in like shapewear. Instead, they’re a lightweight, 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. The waistband is like the Loch Ness Monster: you’ll doubt it really exists.

The pocket is made of the exact same fabric as the shorts, and sewn in with a flat seam that sits flush against your body. No added bulk aside from the treasures you decide to stash in it.

Literally told everyone to I know to buy these

No chaffing, no pulling them down all the time. They stay put and I can walk around for hours and not need to adjust.

Perfect biker short

These are very comfortable for every day wear. I did find with the size I got, the waist band was loose and I’d have to keep pulling it up if I went for a run or something. Next time I’ll try to size down and see if that helps but I like the length, coverage and little side pocket

My new lounge short

These have quickly become my go to around the house! I love them because they stay in place I never have to readjust or pull the legs down after I've been walking like I find myself doing with other brands. They are very lightweight, so great for the hot weather. You could wear them underneath something but I choose to wear them just by themselves. I usually wear a 1X and the XL/2XL was perfect.

My fave Thigh Society short!

Cooling used to be my go-tos and while I still love them, an option with a pocket that is also opaque enough to wear on their own as shorts? Yes, please! Lots the Lapis blue colour. Would live to see more rich, jewel tones - I'd by them all!

I'm usually a size 16 or 2X in pants and have thicker thighs and an L/XL is perfect. I wouldnt say they fit large, theyre just super stretchy! Thigh society shorts at the best thing ever in helping me prevent chaffing. Other brands ride up, move around, or don't do the trick.

Pockets are amazing! Pp

Love having the pockets for my phone under summer dresses that never have pockets! Truly do not roll up and feel lovely against my skin! I now have 4 pairs!
