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.

Very pleased.

These are great shorts. I have been looking for women's boxers that don't ride up, and have been unable to find them. I decided to try these, and they are super comfortable. I am a 12 and I got the M/L. I did discover that they run a touch larger than I thought they would, and ordered a second pair S/M and love them (but then they aren't opaque anymore)! Either way, these are great, and I can still wear both sizes without issue. I find that I like these with leggings because there are absolutely no panty lines. I am really happy with them.

What a find!

Although I am becoming an "old lady", I like to wear shorts. These work beautifully and are extremely comfortable.

Great undershort!

I bought these to wear under skirts and dresses in place of slips, which I hate. I was afraid they would be too tight and restrictive, but they are perfect! Very soft and comfortable. They do not ride up at all, and give a smooth look under lightweight skirts. I love them so much I bought a pair of the Staple. My only wish is that the waistband on the second pair were as wide as the originals. But I'm so happy I got these!
