Size Chart & Fit

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

    Plus Size - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace

    Apple Shaped - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace

    Pear Shaped - Try them all!

    Hourglass - Lace or High Thigh

    Slender - High Thigh or Athletic

        My Shortlettes fall down, why?
        • It is probably a size too big or too small.  If fitting properly the waistband should sit close to the natural waist in the back (lower in the front).  The waist should not roll.   The Shortlette should comfortably hug the body (not tight in any way).  It also should not be baggy.
        • 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.

        Are Shortlettes shape wear? Are they compression shorts?
        • No, I like to say we are an anti-shape wear company.  Our Shortlettes have ample stretch to grow but not squeeze.  They are made to feel good and let your clothes hang nicely on your body.
        How are Shortlettes different than other slip shorts or bike shorts?
        • Undersummers Shortlette Slip Shorts are very different.  Shortlettes have a seam free inner thigh and stay put leg.   Shortlettes are a single layer long legged panty, no need for additional undergarments.  Shortlettes are lightweight, breathable, and moisture wicking for the best hot weather experience.
        How long do Undersummers products last?
        • With proper care, machine wash cold, line dry, no bleach, they should last a very long time.  I have Shorlettes that are nearly 5 years old!
        Can you let your Shortlettes Show?
        • I wouldn't have made them so pretty if they weren't made to be seen!  Go ahead, let them show and peak out from under your skirt.  They are sexy after all!  When I am out and about, everyone says "hi" with a big flash of their Shortlettes to me:)  Maybe that will become the new proper way to say "hello!"  LOL
              Do you have a maternity version?
              • No but women report that Shortlette fit fine during pregnancy (which I am not surprised about given the stretchy nature of our fabric).  Some women have reported that the Athletic Underwear fits better, while others like all the styles.  Order one size up from the regular maternity size you are currently wearing.
