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.

Fabric & Care

They’re tagless (no itch here), have a knit-in cotton crotch and are machine-washable. Plus, they won’t sag or bag, and they stay put—no rolling down or riding up. Total freedom of movement: What a concept.

7 inch: Mid-thigh coverage, perfect for midi skirts & dresses, offers ample coverage for petites.

9 inch: Above-the-knee coverage, perfect for longer skirts & dresses and great for tall folks or petites looking for lots of length.

Typically, you’ll receive your order about a week and a half after purchase. Lightning fast? No. But we guarantee your slip shorts will be worth the wait.

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.

They feel like biking shorts so a bit warmer to wear but the legs did not ride up on me
