Frequently Asked Questions

What makes the Cotton feel so good?

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.

What's a slip short?

We’re glad you asked. Think of them as a combination between an old-school slip and a bike short: They give you coverage under short or too-sheer outfits, smooth over underwear lines (the word “panties” weirds us out, too), and stop your inner thighs from trying to start a forest fire.

Are they shapewear?

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.

What's the waistband like?

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.

Nice quality; Not great fit

I like the quality of the fabric on all three of the different styles I purchased. Unfortunately, though I followed the fit guidelines for XS/S, I found them too tight around the thigh and that they tend to ride low on the waist. I've gone to wear them a few times and find myself taking them off because they just aren't comfortable. They are not returnable (for good reason) so I may take a scissors to them to expand the tight band around my thighs. My recommendation is to choose one style and see how it fits before ordering additional pairs.

Sad face

Tried with underwear. Too small. THEN I find out that I can't return the garment. Sad face.

Really comfy and does roll up

At first I was incredibly excited because these are indeed very comfortable and I even liked them better than my cooling shorts, however when I put them to the test for talking around, I found that they roll up between the thighs and I constantly had to pull them down, which was inconvenient to say the least. I am not sure why that is.

The Cotton vs The Cooling

I bought one of each and they are both good and I don't regret the purchase of either. That said, if I bought again, I would stick with the Cooling as a matter of personal preference. The Cotton is comfortable, felt good, does not bind or roll, and it stays in place. If I'm wearing a flowy dress I would be happy to wear the Cotton under it. If I have on pants, I would choose the Cooling because the Cotton naturally has less friction control.

Won’t buy again

Probably should have ordered a smaller size as the 7” stops at the knees so ok to wear under a knee- length dress but definitely not with 7” shorts! Also, I find the hem shows when wearing leggings. Cotton is a little too thick so won’t wear on very hot days.
