Love them!!! They fit perfectly!

These are cool. I got

These are cool. I got a couple pairs of the short lace ones a year or two ago and I really like them under summer dresses and skirts. I like these athletic ones as well. The waist is great. But the legs do ride up and the crotch creates ‘camel toe’. The fabric is beautifully smooth and silky. Very comfortable. I just wish the crotch and legs didn’t ride up.

I really love the undersummers!

I really love the undersummers! The only reason I gave them 4 stars is because I like the classic better than the athletic. I would give the classic 5 stars for sure! So happy someone came up with the answer to chafing thighs!! They work great! No rolling at the waist, no riding up at the legs, and not tight spandex! Just soft and comfortable! Very happy with this purchase.

After years of wearing tight,

After years of wearing tight, heavy spandex under skirts and dresses, I found these and am very happy with them. They are lightweight, flexible, and stay in place. No more chafing!

I absolutely love to wear

I absolutely love to wear mine under dresses. Light weight, keeps you from sweating and very comfortable. I ordered a large and wish I would have ordered a medium. I would say if you are between sizes, size down.

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?
