I LOVE how long and smooth these are, perfect for maxis. As always, great fabric and comfortable seams. Only downside is I had to take about 3" in at the waist. It was so large, a flap of fabric actually hung loose (away from my spine) at the back seam, and the shorts would slide down my stomach/hips almost immediately as I walked. Maybe because there's no added waist elastic like on the Fusion Shortlette 7"? It still fits my thighs and hips comfortably, but the waist felt like it wasn't as high as some of the other styles I've purchased. For reference I have big thighs, 51" hips, and 36" waist. I usually buy a 2X (slightly tight in the thigh, fits waist) or 3X (fits thigh, slightly loose on waist) in every other style I've bought. I like buying them slightly larger because when the shorts are tight on my thighs they tend to ride up, but in this instance I think sizing down would be better to get the more snug waist fit.
They worked perfectly.
The anti-chafing shorts I have been waiting for! First pair I have found where the legs don’t roll up!! Material is soft, comfortable and cool. These fit very large in the waist - I have ordered another pair a size down to see if that helps. If not, will have taken in. Love these shorts!!
the answer to so many issues. Love this product!
Most comfy shortlette imaginable! Highly recommend you experience this fit and soft fabric.
Exactly what I was looking for. Perfect under my dresses and I love them with my shorts.
Amazing fit , so comfortable and exactly what I've been needing to make me excited again about wearing my dresses and skirts !
I love my garment. I have arthritis in both knees and my knees feel better when they are kept warm, that why I prefer the longer length. I wear them under dresses, to lounge in, and for pj bottoms. I use them for so much and I love them, they are super comfortable.
These feel wonderful, like wearing nothing at all!
Finally! An end to chafed thighs when I’m wearing dresses. I’m tall and wear size 12 pants and the XXL fits perfectly.
Love these! Well worth the price. Thank you for making a longer length.
Love these longer length underwear. Gave a 3 star because the price is ridiculous. I have 2 pair presently and would order more, but they are too expensive.

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.
