INSPIRATION

Undersummers Shortlettes were created CarrieRae's personal need for comfortable thigh protection when she was working as a teacher. In 2011, her thick thighs rubbed and she needed a comfortable solution.  Pants are blazing hot in the Houston spring/summer months, shorts are not acceptable to wear to work, so she was left with capris and dresses.  Her thighs did not support wearing dresses, thigh chafing was too uncomfortable.  The idea of wearing a breezing dress sounded so comfortable to her, that she created the solution to her problem:  The Original Lace Shortlette®️. She wanted something to wearing that was a single layer, the legs stayed put, comfy, and most importantly, pretty.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to help women love wearing dresses.  Dresses are feminine, pretty, and a mood booster.  We offer fabulous Shortlettes®️ to make that possible.

"I want women to love wearing dresses.  Dresses are fun, flirty, and a confidence booster.  We make undergarments that help make that possible!"  CarrieRae, Founder of Undersummers.

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?
