Great for diabetics with pump

I am constantly looking for a place to put my insulin pump meter. This works GREAT!

A Godsend

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

Comfy and practical

I really like undersummers in general, but the pocket shorts are even more awesome! They make hot, sticky summer days a lot more bearable.

Downsizing wardrobe

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.

Great idea, well constructed, just didn't fit me

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.)

The shorts with pockets is GREAT

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 the best

Pockets are the best!

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!

Shortlettes are so comfortable and can be used for more than just a split slip!

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!

Comfort + Pockets = Perfection

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.

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?
