washes well on delicate cycle. light elastic in lace retains stretchiness after repeated washes. works well under skirt or long shorts
These are wonderful! So comfy! I want them in every color! They fit true to size.
Love wearing my under summers under my dresses. Total light comfortable thigh protection
My undersummers lived up to all the hype!! Very comfortable and stay in place. I will be ordering again!!! Love all the colors.
These are my favorite to wear under my summer dresses and my winter leggings. And I am always ready to order more!!
Love them ! ❤️ —Ida
love these so much. Very comfortable. Sadly, some of the stitching began to unravel during the second wearing. But they are perfect for wearing under my favorite summer dresses
It does have a cotton liner.. maybe would be nice if just a little bigger.
I have been looking for a decent pair of underwear to wear under dresses so my thighs don't rub and I did not want binding, tight shapewear. These are comfortable. Only a couple of things I wish were different. It would be nice if they had a cotton panty liner as I do not want to have to wear panties. The seam right in the middle of crotch is not the most comfortable or attractive (camel toe). Goes right up! Had to move to the side. They seem to sit higher waisted on me than in the pictures. I prefer a more hip waisted undie, but I can deal with the higher waist as it is not binding. Also wish the seam right where lace is sewn at thigh was just a bit wider as it tends to squeeze and makes a little bit of that **** fat roll but at the same time, they are not tight. I just have fat thighs :) I bought the large but I think I will buy XL next time. I think a bit looser would be more comfy as I am totally looking for comfort, not shape.
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.
