SHOPPING ONLINE GUIDE

May 10, 2018

Online shopping can be a fast, cost effective, and personal experience if you consider the following:

1. Measure your body with a measuring tape

Bust, waist, and hip measurements (at the widest part) are typical measurements used for sizing. Keep these handy for future online shopping.  At Undersummers, we always recommend buying based on measurements.  They are the best way to determine how your body will fit into our garments.

2. Use the size chart

Sizing varies greatly from brand to brand. If a store provides the size chart, use it along with your measurements. Try not to get hung up on the "size," the goal is to get the best fit.

3. Ask questions

Utilize customer service. Many companies (like us) have representatives available to answer your questions. No question is a bad question. We are here to help.

4. Take advantage of free shipping & returns

Getting the best fit sometimes takes a return. Look for free shipping and return shipping. It allows you to purchase multiples sizes/styles and return the one that doesn't work for you.

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?

CarrieRae's Recommendations:

Under 5'4" - High Thigh, Athletic, or Classic Styles

Plus Size - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace

Apple Shaped - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace

* Order the size in-between your waist and hip measurement.  I.e.  Waist 3X + Hip XL = Order 2X

Pear Shaped - Try them all!

Hourglass - Lace or High Thigh

Slender - High Thigh or Athletic

My Shortlettes fall down, why? Are Shortlettes shape wear? Are they compression shorts?
How are Shortlettes different than other slip shorts or bike shorts? How long do Undersummers products last? Can you let your Shortlettes Show?
