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.

I have the cooling shorts for summer -- but these are my all time go-to under jeans, dresses, even leggings ! I am an event planner, decorator and florist -- I very seldom wear a dress at an event unless it is floor length or mid calf as there is a lot of bending over, running around, up and down ladders, etc etc. What I MOST love about these is the POCKET !!! Yes - I wear as underwear -- and a lot of my wardrobe, esp dressier items, do NOT have pockets for my phone, which I need all day. I put it on vibrate so I can feel it and others cannot hear it --- move to a discreet location and retrieve my phone. No phone in back pocket dropping in the toilet either --- yup -- did that once ! Stash a credit card, money -- but for me, it's the phone. Very very comfortable and keeps the thighs jiggle -free !!!

These are perfect for under dresses, even in the hot humid summer. The pocket is perfect to slip my phone in so I can be hands free. Great quality! I have two pair, one black one beige.

The legs don’t give as much as I’d like.

I get it, but am sorry to be stuck with two $40 pairs of shorts I don’t love. I love the cooling shorts, but wanted to try the cargo for its pocket. Due to the expensive charge for shipping, I ordered 2 pairs to get free shipping. I ordered TTS as recommended, but they are thicker and more restrictive than the cooling shorts. I want to forget I’m wearing them, which I’m guessing sizing up might allow. But there’s no way I’m buying 2 more pairs. Please be aware of this policy before ordering. Also, consider sizing up in the cargo though others recommend TTS.
