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.

Pure comfort!

When I first saw the size of “The Cooling” pair I thought these won’t fit for they looked so small. I was wrong…the fit is perfect and the comfort/feel is outstanding. Love the wash bag which helps keep these in tip top shape during laundering. Definitely will be purchasing more!

Wish I sized up

Everyone says “true to size” I am a M (6) and got S/M - but I wish I got M/L.
I plan on wearing these for long walks in Europe and wish I sized up because they are snug and very sheer. They do fit, but I feel like the next size would have been a more relaxed fit if a true Medium when walking around during a European summer.

Comfy but

These are soft but I found there was not enough cotton lining in the crotch for my liking.

Nice and soft

I've only tried these on, as I bought them for summer wear under skirts. They are very soft, stretchy, and thin which should work just fine for me.
