Here are some of the amazing articles and blogs featuring our shortlettes.
Leslie with xojane.com explored different solutions to end summertime discomfort and included Undersummers Lace Shortlettes in her review.
"An unexpected bonus: the fabric used in the lace style shorts is slippery enough that it doesn’t catch on skirts." ~Leslie
Australian blogger Lilli, of Frocks & Frou Frou included Undersummers in her own review of ways to beat hot weather issues.
"They’re designed to be flashed around, so it’s not the end of the world if a gust of wind catches your skirt and flashes the world." ~Lilli
Jen with Abby Post made her personal list of the best Chub Rub products, giving Undersummers shortlettes the highest ranking.
"These are the holy grail of chub rub prevention!" ~Jen
Our friends at Dare Magazine Canada cover the best ways to avoid chafing problems in their Spring 2015 issue.
"Lightweight and breathable, Undersummers Shortlettes will flatter your curves while protecting your thighs."
"these slip shorts are so smooth you won’t even know they’re there."
We were thrilled to be featured prominently on Buzzfeed.com's article addressing sweaty thighs.
"If you’re dealing with chronic chub rub and creams don’t cut it, get yourself a pair of these bad boys."
Undersummers' own CarrieRae is a featured fashion industry expert, discussing ways the industry is changing to be inclusive of all sizes in this Modern Wellness Guide article.
"Size and cut dictate how something fits, so ignore the number and pick clothes by how they fit and feel. Clothes that skim or hug the body without squeezing are more comfortable and more flattering, no matter what the size label says." ~CarrieRae
Casey, who pens the blog Adventures of a Part Time Wheeler references learning about Undersummers shortlettes from the xoJane article and adds her opinion.

Shortlettes are generously sized to hug but not squeeze your curves. They are not compression and do not feel like nylons/hosiery, shapewear, bike shorts, or compression pants. Shortlettes are simply comfortable. They are not made to be tight, feel constricting, shape, pinch, or bind. The longer lengths allows for maximum chafe protection and comfort.
Correct Fit Guidelines:
✔️ Waist should not roll
✔️ Body should glide comfortably against the skin
✔️ Legs should not ride up while walking
Signs of Incorrect Fit:
✖️ Baggy crotch (too big)
✖️ Running at the seams/Wears to fast (too small)
✖️ Slides Down (too small)
✖️ Legs ride up (too small)
Which is the best fit?
Under 5'4" - High Thigh & Athletic
Plus Size - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace
Apple Shaped - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace
Pear Shaped - Try them all!
Hourglass - Lace or High Thigh
Slender - High Thigh or Athletic
If the Shortlette is not baggy but slides down, it is probably a size too small. It needs to sit higher towards the natural waist in the back to stay put during normal activity.
