Inspired by men’s underwear, boy shorts have since been re-imagined for all bodies — and we’re here for it. Over the years, boy shorts have evolved in terms of material, length and when to wear them. Previously considered an underwear style, boy shorts are making a foray into everyday life and can be worn in other situations, not just under clothing. Here’s how to wear boy shorts under clothes or on their own.

What are boy shorts? 

We love boy shorts as an anti-chafe solution, a comfortable garment to protect your skin when your thighs rub together. In the warmer months when we’re wearing dresses, skirts and shorts our skin can chafe easily and boy shorts are the ideal fabric barrier to prevent that. Thigh Society shorts come in many lengths, but if you love the thigh-skimming boy-short style, our 5-inch pair is ideal.

When to Wear Boy Shorts 

1. Boy Shorts as Anti-Chafe Shorts

We love boy shorts as an anti-chafe solution, a comfortable garment to protect your skin when your thighs rub together. In the warmer months when we’re wearing dresses, skirts and shorts our skin can chafe easily and boy shorts are the ideal fabric barrier to prevent that. Thigh Society shorts come in many lengths, but if you love the thigh-skimming boy-short style, our 5-inch pair is ideal.

2. Boy Shorts as Underwear

The origin of the boy short! We still love to wear boy shorts as underwear, but with less of the lacy, sexy styles that were trendy in the 90s and early aughts. Now we prefer the comfort of smooth materials that feel great against the skin. Shorts make great underwear when you’re wearing something tight, for example a tube-style dress that would easily reveal the outline of a thong or underwear. Shorts in a smooth moisture-wicking material will keep your outfit VPL-less.

3. Boy Shorts for Sports

There’s nothing like wearing a pair of short shorts for sports, especially on a hot day. You’ll be less hot and sweaty with less fabric and, let’s be honest, shorts are also a nice way to show off your gams. Our seamless shorts don’t squeeze your skin or cut off your range of motion, even if you’re getting into a challenging yoga pose, for example. Our Original shorts are completely opaque and great for hiking, pilates, strength training and more. If you like to be out on the water, you can use our shorts as an impromptu boy shorts swimsuit, or in those moments you need a little more coverage while sailing, snorkeling or paddle boarding.

4. Boy Shorts for Modesty

Boy shorts make great pajama bottoms. They stay put, keep you cool and are so  comfy they won’t interrupt your beauty rest. Our Staple shorts are soft like butter and move with your body, no matter how much you toss and turn at night. Paired with a soft T-shirt, these shorts will help you get a perfect night’s sleep.

6. Boy Shorts as Booty Shorts

Remember when short shorts used to be referred to as booty shorts? That seems outdated now, but short boy shorts kind of do the same thing, depending on how you wear them. A pair of black boy shorts paired with a crop top or T-Shirt is definitely a street style look, especially on a sweltering day when you prefer wearing next to nothing.
