Frequently Asked Questions

Our shorts are made of a mix of Pima—the champagne of cottons, which is extra-soft and extra-durable—and modal, a natural fiber that's resistant to shrinkage and pilling. Together, they create a texture that’s as luxurious and velvety as a Sade song.

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.

A product that makes you a brand ambassador

Like anyone else wearing a plus size, I've tried dozens of under-shorts. I couldn't tell you any of the brands I've used in the past because I don't continue to use them. These? These I use. These have revived that entire section of my wardrobe I've avoided for years. The product is what they say it is and is - without prodding or payment - one worthy of ambassadorship. Nearly any chance I get to mention the brand or gift the shorts to my friends and family, I do. I'll never recommend them enough.

Love, love these are the best

These shorts are amazing! No rolling down or riding up at all. So comfortable, I forgot I was wearing them. I used to hate to wear dresses not so much anymore with these. I will purchase again.

Perfect for summer

Move over any kind of ladies "panties" -- and intro these lightweight cooling shorts! I now have 3 pair and I have several of the thicker pair for winter wear or under dresses that need a little more things/tummy control -- with pockets !!! I did not realize how comfortable this kind of underwear would be --- or rather how 'uncomfortable ' regular underwear was --- regards to the leg bands cutting into my leg, tugging to pull them down - constantly re-adjusting.... ugh...... those have now gone by the wayside ! NO SWEAT !!! NO IRRITATION !! A breath of fresh air --- lol -- so to say :)
