Quality is in the details with silky soft fabric, beautiful laces, and unique designs which function beyond your wildest dreams. CarrieRae doesn't stop there, she selects beautiful colors and playful prints to making these your all time go-to favorite underpinning.
Undersummers Shortlettes were created CarrieRae's personal need for comfortable thigh protection when she was working as a teacher. In 2011, her thick thighs rubbed and she needed a comfortable solution. Pants are blazing hot in the Houston spring/summer months, shorts are not acceptable to wear to work, so she was left with capris and dresses. Her thighs did not support wearing dresses, thigh chafing was too uncomfortable. The idea of wearing a breezing dress sounded so comfortable to her, that she created the solution to her problem: The Original Lace Shortlette®️. She wanted something to wearing that was a single layer, the legs stayed put, comfy, and most importantly, pretty.
Our mission is to help women love wearing dresses. Dresses are feminine, pretty, and a mood booster. We offer fabulous Shortlettes®️ to make that possible.

After a few days of these exhausting exchanges in in my head, I found relief in acknowledging that I do not have control over this virus and the effects on our people, community or economy. I have control over sticking to my values.

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, 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
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.
