The only reason I did not give a 5 star is because there is a size lacking. The one between XL and 2X, which would be a 16-18. XL is a 16 and 2X is a 20. I wear Women's 18-20, which is usually a 1X. These fit nicely but just a little bit looser than I would like them to be. The quality is nice and the colors are lovely.
I love the feel of the fabric as always. I just wish they were longer. Didn't realize they were too short, they roll up on my thighs.☹
I wore my Fusion Shortlettes today for the first time, and I love them! They stayed put (no drooping!), kept me cool in my overly hot office, and were very comfortable, I'm ordering another pair today.
I ordered a size too small and the company handled it well. I got the kind with the lace around the legs and sometimes it still feels a little too tight. Otherwise, a great product.
They seem to slip down
These are soooo comfortable. I do not wear shorts so I almost always have a skirt or dress on. As I like full skirts, these are a life saver, as far as my underwear is concerned. I will buy more.
Bought these along with another pair in a different cut. These ones I feel are bigger, as they are not as secure on my waist and they slip down. The slipping wouldn't be a big deal, but when they ride low the lace gapes, which isn't as flattering. But the colour is great, getting lots of compliments today.
Love how they fit, how they feel and everything. And the support people were absolutely wonderful.
So comfortable and does the trick stylishly.
I love them! They are light and comfortable. I could even have sized down one, but they are still good. Love the colors as well. Would definitely order again.
Sizing by measurements is a bit off but will do. Great idea
The lilac shortlettes are my fourth pair of Undersummers. I wear the shorts under my dresses for ballroom dancing. The pops of color are great and not "old ladyish".
these short slipshorts are great, they work well with everything, will buy again
Love the undersummers. So comfortable to wear with skirts and dresses! And the new colors are really pretty and colorful.
Lovely color, great fit, and actually prevents chafing!
|Size (USA)||Waist (in)||Hip (in)|

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.
