These are the best thing to happen to sundresses! I’m buying multiple pairs to match my sundress wardrobe
So I ordered 2 pairs of shorts- the 9" Lace Shortlette and the 6.5" Athletic Underwear. I LOVE the 9" Lace. They sit right on my hips, at my waist, and don't budge. Occasionally throughout the day I do need to pull the leg down after walking/sweating, but it's nothing I'm annoyed by. So far, I still wear my regular bikini undies with the shorts. I guess I like the tighter hug from my usual panties. No chafing, less sweat, more comfort! I wear a size 10 skirt and the M fit great- not tight but not loose. Total win. Now for the 6.5" Athletic pair- I was less impressed by these. The material is comfy and the fit was spot on, but I like the higher, lacy waist and longer leg of the 9" Lace. These seemed to have a slightly looser fit, and the leg has a tendency to ride up more than the 9" Lace. After months of searching and comparing anti-chub rub shorts, I'm glad I chose Undersummers. They somehow found a way to reach the trifecta of comfort, quality, and affordability. I will be buying more pairs of 9" Lace Shortlettes when my next paycheck hits!

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.
