How can I serve during isolation & the crisis?

April 13, 2020

This crisis has got me thinking, what can I do?  How can I help the war on COVID-19? How can I help the front line workers? How can I help my community.  


How can I help my community?

Personally I am wearing a mask when out and about.  Which isn't a whole lot! I've been staying home, staying safe, and trying to do my part and flatten the curve.

So I've been in action.  Two weeks ago, we switched our Los Angeles production from making Undersummers Shortlettes to making cotton face masks.  I'm hopeful that they arrive soon so I can provide them to our community.  I wish I could donate them all, but the reality of this situation is I can't.  So I will selling them at cost and asking you to donate where you can.


How can I help the front line workers?

I decided to extend my special discounts to medical professionals. This is my personal thank you to our outstanding healthcare heroes.


How can I help the small businesses in my community?

I am continuing to do business, ordering meals, things I need from small businesses close to home.  I'm not asking them to discount their prices, I'm paying full price. 


What are you doing to serve?

Back to Values During Crisis

April 03, 2020

My emotions want to take hold of me and strip me off all rational thought and the ability to make a decision.

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?

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?
