I initially bought just one pair of the 15 inch leg length Undersummers in pink, 5x plus size, just to try them out. I figured they would be too small, but to my surprise they fit just perfect, snug enough to stay up and loose enough for comfort. They are just past my knees which is exactly what I wanted. The fabric is silky soft and smooth. Plus they are so pretty too! I feel good in them. I was so pleased with them that I went back online the day I received them and ordered 4 more pair in all four colors--another pink pair, lilac, tan, and black. I love to sleep in them too. I am so glad that I found Undersummers.
I was buying the 9", but the 15" are so much better. I am tall (5'8") with an inseam of 34". I will end up trimming off a couple inches, but the difference in comfort is huge. They feel great, and wear so much more comfortable. I bought 3 different colors and am so glad I did!
nice but slips down too much
I like this length, and will especially like them in winter, when I need to be a little warmer. I love all my Undersummers. I've been wearing them for years, and recommend them to everyone. Always wear a little bit longer skirt for golf, and feel well covered on breezy days! Thanks for all the care you put into creating and producing Undersummers.
Excellent! Even though I am 6’2” the 9” lace shortlette works perfectly. I love to wear dresses & skirts when it is hot & humid. Wearing these makes it possible. Good quality & great fit.
I chose my size according to the size chart and they’re too lose on my waist. When I walk , if I’m wearing a circle skirt, they actually slip down my waist !! Not good.
I love this long length style and the lovely shade of pink. A win-win mood booster! So comfy!
Very comfortable---Fit nicely
These are the first anti-chafing shorts I’ve ever had where the legs don’t roll up!Amazing!The waist is very loose though even having gone down a size,so it doesn’t stay in place too well.Wish there was more elastic in the waist.Other than that they are awesome!
I like that they can’t ride up because they’re longer. They also cover the whole thigh which is way more comfy.
Living in a warmer place I found that bike riding is fun. I love this new length of the under summers ,with my wraparound skirts, they work very well while I ride, first they cover up my legs to the knee from the sun, plus keeping a little modesty when the skirt rides up. I wear them for about an hour in the morning so the waist has been ok for me but if I had to wear them all day long I would like the waist a little tighter . My weight is 180 and I have both 2xl and xl. Colour and material is fabulous.
I ordered the size recommended on the size chart. Unfortunately, they are to big and slide down. This is the second pair of undersummers I have bought. The first pair was the recommended size but a shorter length. They were too small and crept up as I wore them. I have not been able to figure out my size so therefore I have not really enjoyed wearing undersummers. After spending a total of $100 I am disappointed
They are the perfect length and love the color.

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.
