I am a larger woman and I discovered Undersummers last year. I travel for work and wear dresses often. This was the only product I found that works well for the dreaded "chub rub". I love this new design with pockets as many summer dresses I like don't have a place for me to put my phone. They fit well, don't cause me to get any warmer than I already am, and they stay in place.
I love these. Very comfortable
The second I put these on, I almost cried with happiness. So comfy, so freeing. I wore them all weekend. I am usually an XL, but I got L, and they fit perfectly. Not even a trace of feeling like I’m being held in by a boa constrictor. Pure perfection.
I bought these on sale with little hope they would actually do what they advertise, anti/chaff and never ride up. Boy was I glad to be wrong!! I love my Undersummers. First time in forever I’ve worn shorts without them or the undersummer riding up. I’ve already purchased a few more in different styles so I can try them all.
These may be the best shortlettes - or the best underwear - I've ever worn! Not only do they fit perfectly, but the pockets are an incredible bonus. They're slim, don't bulge out, and hold my phone, cash, ID and other cards, and the like just like I'd hoped. I'm gonna be buying more.
Good. Comfortable. Just wish they were a little longer, maybe 10”instead of 8”. Love the coverage under dresses and skirts and the fact I don’t have thighs rubbing together.
Love, love, love them!!! Great under my midi skirt. I especially look forward to traveling in them. Might add a bit of Velcro to one pocket to secure extra funds.
Loooove these and having pockets. I’m looking forward to wearing them more this summer with cute little dresses. Thank you for the pockets.
Not sure what else to say other than pls, pls, pls make these in other colors (preferably in various grey shades) so I can buy more! The 8" length was PERFECT for my 5'8" height. No rolling up the legs or down the stomach AT ALL, even after wearing them all day (the 6.5" length does do that). These, however, fit perfectly - not too short, and not weirdly long) and I'm confident in saying they're the most comfortable pair of shorts I've ever worn in my life that aren't meant to be just pajamas. Thank you for adding pockets!!!!! Love, love, LOVE these shorts!!!
These are the best things I've ever put on my body. They're so silky and comfortable, I'm trying to restrain myself from getting ten more pairs for lounging around the house and for wearing under dresses. Definitely a great summer substitute for yoga pants! I'm an XL or XXL in clothing, and XL in these fits great. The leg pockets fit my iPhone XR just right---I would be careful with what you put in the pockets when you're sitting and standing/out and about, since these aren't as stretchy as biker shorts and won't hold in the contents as tightly, but the pockets are great if you're just around the house or walking around the neighborhood. I hope there are more fun colors soon!

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.
