The Staple

Frequently Asked Questions

These are downy soft and super stretchy, which makes them sort of irresistibly versatile—in other words, they’re so multifaceted, they could win an EGOT. (You know how magazines are always talking about “day to night” clothing? This is actually it.)

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are buttery soft and stretch to twice their size without bagging or sagging, making them perfect to accommodate a growing belly during pregnancy and beyond.

Thigh Society shorties are totally bump-friendly — they don’t compress you or suck you in like shapewear. Instead, they’re a lightly smoothing, 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, and is designed to stay in place without rolling down. The waistband is like the Loch Ness Monster: you’ll doubt it really exists.

Our shorts stretch up to 2x their size without bagging or sagging, making them perfect for your pre-and-post-partum journey. We recommend sticking with your regular size for the first trimester, and sizing up for the second and third. Then you can continue wearing both once your baby is here!

Our shorts are made from the highest quality yarns that are soft and silky-smooth against the skin — even surgical scars. The Staple short acts as a light barrier, helping protect scars and stitches from snagging against your clothes.

Perfection

I had been perusing all the comments/reviews prior to biting the proverbial bullet and purchasing The Staple in Lavendar. I'm very happy I bit that bullet because they are everything they are advertised to be. Soft, comfy, and no thigh chafe or rolling! Now I need a new dress!!!

Fantastic

These are so comfortable and light! they do not add warmth or bilk on those hot summer days so perfect under a sun dress. The sizing is generous because they have so much give. I would not size up. I am usually a 1X and the XL/2XL was perfect. these ones are a little longer than others so not good for short dresses. Love them!

This is the real deal shit!

There are not enough stars to give stating how much I love my purchases from Thigh Society! I was skeptical, as always when you purchase something from the internet but DAMN so freaking amazeballs!! If you have not purchased yours yet DO IT NOW! You will not be disappointed! Oh, and I am a big girl with big thighs!
