Frequently Asked Questions

These are buttery soft and stretch to twice their size without bagging or sagging, making them perfect to accommodate a growing belly during pregnancy and beyond.

Thigh Society shorts don’t compress you or inflict tight belly pressure discomfort like shapewear. Instead, they’re a lightweight, breathable and extra gentle long underwear essential you’ll reach for through pregnancy and beyond.

Flexible and stretchy, our waistband is made from the same fabric as the shorts, just double-folded and sewn-in. It stretches to your bump, never digging into your skin. The waistband is like the Loch Ness Monster — you’ll doubt it really exists.

"These shorties are the best clothing purchase I've made while pregnant! I wear nothing but dresses since everything is uncomfortable and shrinking, and I live in a hot climate where my legs stick together. Not with these!"

"Pregnant Mama Approved! I live in Alabama and I'm 6 months pregnant in August. Since these aren't shapewear but still provide comfort from chub-rub, they are perfect! I can wear light dresses and be comfortable with everyone else without these pushing in on or uncomfortably squeezing my bump! The quality is outstanding and they don't rise- anywhere! Definitely on my must have for pregnant-mamas list!"

Lauren Tancock

"I'm pregnant and pants are not my friend right now. These shorts are the perfect under-layer for dresses. They are high enough that they go over the bump and they keep me comfy, with no chafe. Love these super high rise!"

"I am in love with these! I can wear dresses now and be comfortable at 7 months pregnant without getting chafed!"

Melissa Edwards

"These shorts are amazing and I am definitely planning to buy a few more pairs. I'm pregnant and worried that the waistband might dig in uncomfortably or give my baby bump an odd shape, but the waist fits snugly yet smoothly and they are super comfortable. For anyone else who is pregnant I did have to go up a size to accommodate the bump."

"I wear these all the time with dresses, and I love how comfy they are. I can wear them while pregnant as well, which is a godsend. I would highly recommend these, and have bought them for others and they love them too!"

"I wish I had 10 pairs. I also wish all of my clothing was this fabric. I'm pregnant, and I got the XL/2X (my regular size) and the 3X/4X (TS recommends going up a size for 2nd and 3rd trimesters). Both fit and are super comfy, but I'm glad I got a size up for the next few months, because they're true to size. I wear them around the house and to bed, and I'm in love."

"Going into the summer 8 months pregnant and up 60+ pounds i needed something that would help me stay comfortable and cool. These are my go to everyday for with every style dress I have. I wouldn’t be able to get comfortable or move around without them. They are not tight, they stay put and DONT roll everything else i have rolls! I brag about my “chub rub shorts” to everyone. I was so worried about the summer heat but not anymore !"

Katie Fox

"I got this primarily because after becoming pregnant, I found wearing skirts was the only comfortable thing around, but not after walking around all day! With this I can go all day in a skirt without any issue, and they never ride up. I forget I'm even wearing them as the day goes on!"

"I love these shorts! I’ve had pairs for several years and they hold up. I am currently 7 months pregnant in the dead of summer heat in Texas. These are life saving. I purchased a few more to get me through the rest of my pregnancy."

Cassandra West

"These are awesome! I'd highly recommend to anyone looking to save themselves from chafe! I was 6 months pregnant when I ordered these, got a size medium (normally a size 4-6), and they fit perfectly! Now 7 months pregnant and they are still wonderful!"
