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.

Absolutely Worth It-- believe the hype!

One of my best purchases of 2024. I decided to buy these, not certain if I was just falling prey to IG marketing. It isn't just marketing. I bought these and "The Cooling" shorts and honestly forget that I am wearing them. They prevent chaffing better than my target bike shorts, are so comfy, so light, and so stretchy. I usually wear size 14-16 pants and bought the L/XL, I maybe could have gone to M/L, but am quite happy in the size I have. Also, after wearing them out all day, they don't smell! I am waiting to do a few more washes to make certain that they are durable, but I will definitely be buying more pairs. Believe the hype!

I love these shorts. I wear them under my dress and the pocket gives me a place to stash my phone.

I like them quite a bit, however the waist is too long, I have to fold it over to be at a comfortable length. Will try again with a smaller size M/L to see of that helps. I carry my weight in my thighs and booty though not my tummy (athletic build).

5 Stars

Super comfortable, doesn't roll or ride or dig. Does exactly as described and I thought were more comfortable than the cooling pair. Love them both, but ordering more of these. Pocket convenient for dressing in the morning and running around the house etc. Nice touch. Big fan of these! 7 in short, M/L (per tag), I'm 5'3, approx. 165. Size 12 on a good day!

10/10 Recommend

These shorts are the perfect pair for wearing under my summer dresses! The pocket is the perfect size to fit my phone (without it falling out) and they are incredibly comfy!

These shorts stay in place (on my thighs) all day and I don’t have to worry about adjusting them when I’m moving around. I have found that the waist is slightly larger (I am generally a size medium and ordered the M/L), and find that the waist will slide down but it isn’t uncomfortable when they do; my main reason for purchase is that the actual material that covers my thighs stays in place - and these 100% do!

I found thigh society via an instagram ad; and while I am extremely hesitant to ever purchase anything based on instagram ads I am SO GLAD I did!!

10/10 I definitely want to buy more pairs of these! I would absolutely love if these had pockets on both sides.

If you were mid range thigh dresses I recommend the 5 inch length; I purchased the 7 inch, and while they are perfect for basically every dress I own - there are a couple which I have to essentially “roll” these up so they won’t be longer than the dress itself.

Can’t wait to make more purchases in the future!
