Diabetic insulin pumps create a unique challenge when wearing dresses. Undersummers recently released a special Slipshort with pockets with a hidden waist packet specifically designed to hold an insulin pump. This was a highly requested item by Undersummers Shortlette customers and it is finally here!
The hidden waist pocket is a perfect holder for an insulin pump under dresses. Shortlette slip shorts can also be worn as a long boyshort under clothing such as pants or shorts.
Other options for wearing an insulin pump with a dress include wearing slipshorts and clipping it to the slip short waist band or in the side pockets. For Undersummers Shortlette Slip Shorts we would recommend wearing a Fusion or Classic style as these have a small elastic waistband.
Overall, Shortlette Slip Shorts are a sleek and comfortable solution to securing your insulin pump while wearing summer dresses.
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

My Shortlettes fall down, why?
It is probably a size too big or too small. If fitting properly the waistband should sit close to the natural waist in the back (lower in the front). The waist should not roll. The Shortlette should comfortably hug the body (not tight in any way). It also should not be baggy.
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.
Are Shortlettes shape wear? Are they compression shorts?
No, I like to say we are an anti-shape wear company. Our Shortlettes have ample stretch to grow but not squeeze. They are made to feel good and let your clothes hang nicely on your body.
How are Shortlettes different than other slip shorts or bike shorts?
Undersummers Shortlette Slip Shorts are very different. Shortlettes have a seam free inner thigh and stay put leg. Shortlettes are a single layer long legged panty, no need for additional undergarments. Shortlettes are lightweight, breathable, and moisture wicking for the best hot weather experience.
How long do Undersummers products last?
With proper care, machine wash cold, line dry, no bleach, they should last a very long time.
Can you let your Shortlettes Show?
I wouldn't have made them so pretty if they weren't made to be seen! Go ahead, let them show and peak out from under your skirt. They are sexy after all!
