Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.

Best Undies Ever

Excellent quality, the best customer service. And the functionality of these shorts can't be beat. I'm 5'8" and the 7 inch short is perfect for me to wear with skirts and dresses. All day anti roll up or chafing.

So comfy

I bought a pair to wear under my costume and they were so comfortable. I was unsure about wearing an extra layer under the hot stage lights, but if anything, they made me forget my costume and focus on my performance.

These aren't my favorite

These slip down from the crotch. I like the cooling line better
