Everyday: 82 degrees, 82% humidity, thick thighs under a breezy skirt; these Undersummers are a godsend. They are comfortable, POCKETED!, and last for years. <3
I love them and recommend them to everyone!
I really like undersummers in general, but the pocket shorts are even more awesome! They make hot, sticky summer days a lot more bearable.
Love them. They stay in place and my thighs don’t chafe. It makes wearing summer dresses easy!
Love them!! Will be buying more!
Loving the pockets. I ordered my first pair of slip shorts in 2015 and they are great quality and are in great shape but wear I have lost weight, I had to down size my wardrobe and these were first on the list.
First of all, let me just say that I love my Undersummers! I usually get the 9" Lace Shortlette, and they fit perfectly. However, when I saw Undersummers had come out with a shortlette with pockets - POCKETS! - I was very excited. So much so that I ordered three pair! Unfortunately, the style is much different from the ones I usually get, and they didn't fit properly. I have a ... um ... very large behind. The front of the pocket shortlettes fit perfectly, but the back didn't come up quite far enough. If I was just walking around, they were fine, but if I sat down, they'd ride down and not ride back up when I got up, so I was always having to tug them up. It got pretty uncomfortable after a while. I suspect that they would fit anyone with a normally sized posterior very well, but not me, much to my dismay. Undersummers was fabulous about it though, and not only did they refund my money for the two pair I didn't wear, they sent me a pair of my regular style to replace the pocketed ones I did wear but didn't like. If they ever put pockets on the lace or fusion shortlettes, I'll be first in line to try them! (Epilogue: I gave the pair I wore to my daughter in law (after washing them, of course), and she loves them.)
I wear them just like regular shorts with a tunic top to walk around the lake with my iPod. The fit is as expected not smaller or larger than usual. They are very comfortable. Ordering was easy and I received my items quickly.
These are so comfortable, I want to wear them all the time.
OMG! I have been missing these my whole life - my phone, keys, or whatever right into the pockets no matter what dress I'm wearing! I am now regretting not having ordered more of this one! Love the fabric too. I have tried lots of other slip shorts and these ones are hands down my favourites!
I was looking for an undergarment to hold my insulin pump. The shortlettes were a life saver! I only wear dresses so I had to find something that would hold my insulin pump in a discreet but comfortable way. I already bought 6 pairs and plan to buy more!
I usually go for cotton bike shorts, but they barely last a summer before the inside seams begin to fray and tear. These are not only more comfortable for longer and are holding up great, but they also have pockets large enough for my phone. So worth the extra expense.
These are awesome. The pockets are next level greatness.
I think these run a bit big- I used the measurements on the website but all of my pairs seem a bit baggy. These are very silky feeling but the pocket is not very deep. Couple that with them being a bit loose and putting the phone in the pocket means these fall down for me! The other thing I didn't love is all the seams were completely visible under a solid colored dress. Maybe if worn under a pattern it wouldn't be so bad, but not great under a lighter solid. Also would not suggest wearing these in place of shorts- very thin!
I love them. I love how they feel, how they look, and the pockets are just so convenient. *leans in* Good way to sneak forbidden items like cell phones and cameras into places... if you’re a spy. More colors and lace, please!

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.
