Frequently Asked Questions

What makes the Original feel so good?

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.

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.

Pleasantly surprised!

I saw a lot of ads for these on social media and was skeptical if they would live up to the hype. I bought one pair to see if they work and I am really pleased that I did! I have major thigh chafing issues, especially in the sweaty summer, and these are great so far. I wear them under dresses and also just around the house because they're so comfortable! I have large thighs and they don't dig into them or my waist. I just bought another two pairs in different colors/materials! Highly recommend.

I could live in these!

These are the comfiest shorts ever! I like to just wear them around the house but they’re also, of course, really great for wearing under dresses. They don’t roll and they have enough tightness and compression you feel all held in and smoothed out but they’re not so tight they’re u comfortable or leave marks on you. I seriously love these and will definitely be buying more thigh society when I can!

Love these 💗

I bought a few pairs of the shorts in different lengths and fabrics and they are all incredible. I feel so comfortable wearing them under a skirt. They are so cosy and silky and I wish I had a pair in every single colour. I’ve told my friends and family to buy them. Must haves in your wardrobe.
