Unfortunately, both these and the 15" length I got for the first time both have a weird set-in waistband that doesn't have any actual elastic band. Wearing them under a dress, they slid down and down and down, making me awkwardly "rearrange" constantly rendering them useless for an active workday. So so sad!! Still love the hybrids I've gotten before and the style with the pocket I just got but really disappointed with these :(
I never received my order
Firstly, I used the measurements but due tot he fact that the waist measurement for my usual size (2x) was not large enough, I ordered 3X. I ordered a gray full length and a black full length. Secondly, when I received them I needed to feel the material, so I opened one package. I kept the tags on since I thought I would be able to send them back if they didn't fit. I tried one of the pair on. It was baggy all over my legs. I read somewhere that different colors of the same size might fit differently, so I opened up the other package to try it on. It fit the same way, too baggy. Thirdly, I kept the tags on and was preparing to return them. Then I noticed somewhere that due to Covid-19 there weren't returnable due to the open package. That seemed like a poor excuse because, with the tags on them, it was obvious that they weren't worn. So, I had no choice but to keep them. I have worn the gray ones a couple of times under very long dresses. They are too baggy for me to wear with my tunic tops. I am very disappointed in the material and the fit. Plus, it was not clearly and obviously stated that there are no returns or exchanges if the packages are opened. I am having trouble buying food and paying my mortgage. I do not need to be wasting my money on items I can not fully use. Your policy, and the lack of making it clear before the purchase, does not shed a good light on your company.
I'm a bit conflicted with the sizing. The waist feels a bit big, but I'm afraid that a smaller size won't fit my heavy thighs. There is plenty of length for my 5'6" frame. This is my first UnderSummers purchase. I'm not used to wearing a non-shapewear undergarment and that may take some getting used to.
These were my first encounter with Undersummers, and I absolutely love them!! I wear them as “Leggings” in the house and I’m entirely comfortable all through the day!! They’re SO soft and they NEVER ride up or cut off circulation!!
the only drawback with these fabulous leggings is the fact I have stubby legs, they do pool at your ankles but being 5ft 2 it is what what I'm use to.
I love these! I was worried they were going to be a little too retro-1980s shiny (I can’t believe the 80s are retro, btw), but they’re so cute! And comfortable! And cool in the summer! And like all undersummers, you can skip the underwear and then hand wash after you wear them and they’ll be dry by morning. I would love a matte pair, but I realize that US material isn’t matte, so I’m not sure how that would even work.
Nice quality, true to size, will definitely be buying again!
The long version of these is amazing. I wasn't sure I would like these but I took a chance and wow, I love them. I can't wait until fall so that I can wear them. They are going to look so cute under skirts and dresses!
I LOVE THESE!!
Perfect leg length. The rise was very high so went 4" above waist.
These tights were soooo comfortable. However, they were also too long by about 4 inches (NOT counting the lace). It would be terrific if there was an option for short footless tights.
I really wanted to love these but I don’t. They are not as loose as the shortlettes which I love. They tend to slide down.
These are so comfortable, and they look great with dresses and boots or flats! They’re perfect for the cooler weather!

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.
