The Original

$37

The shorts that started it all! These super-versatile, velvety wonders are opaque, so they can be layered under clothes or worn alone. Because pants are just a state of mind, you know?

*These give off supportive bike-short vibes & are a little more snug than our other styles.

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.

Perfect for my recent trip

I just came back from an international trip and wore these with a few different outfits. The fit was super comfy, and I even walked 13 km across London with no itching, chafing, or bunching up!

Comfortable Thighs

Decided to try these. I’ve had other brands I’ve tried & they didn’t stay down on the thighs. They always rolled up. I was so happy that these did what they said. They weren’t tight & stayed down on my thighs. Already telling everyone about them.

Great fit & Comfortable

They are comfortable & did not roll up on this big girl. Love the cotton crotch area & I did not need to wear underwear underneath them.😃

This is now a staple for me!

Enjoying the 9" length and fabric. Have only worn a few times, but it was great under dresses and skirts! No bunching or ride-up. Would buy again! Note that these are a replacement for undies and slipshorts, not really a "bike" short to be worn on its own. Love how these protect me from chub-rub and chafing on hot days.
