Frequently Asked Questions

We know, right? It’s partly because of the clever construction, partly because of the first-rate fabric blend and partly because it supports your body without feeling constricting. Plus, IT HAS A POCKET.

We’re glad you asked. Think of them as a combination between an old-school slip, a boxer brief and a bike short: They give you coverage under short or too-sheer outfits, stop your inner thighs from trying to start a forest fire, and light smoothing with no VPL (the word “panties” weirds us out, too). Plus, the knit-in cotton-rich crotch means you can wear them without underwear if you want, eliminating the need for an extra layer.

Thigh Society shorts don’t compress you or suck you in like shapewear. Instead, they’re a lightweight, breathable, sweat-wicking essential you’ll reach for again and again.

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

The pocket is made of the exact same fabric as the shorts, and sewn in with a flat seam that sits flush against your body. No added bulk aside from the treasures you decide to stash in it.

10 stars! So light and comfy and THEY DONT ROLL!

I already loved Thigh Society for under dresses, but these shorts are my go to for walking the dog when it is boiling hot out here in NC. They are so light and comfy and 1. NEVER move or give you a wedgie and 2. absolutely never rolll down or ride up. I have 4 pairs, including a backup pair in case I wear out my black ones and they stop making them. Oh, and how they don't run/pill/rip is beyond me. I am rough on them and they come out of the dryer right as rain every time. Worth every penny. Not see through in the dark colors, I don't have the light ones because I don't want to flash anyone. I always wear an XL in bike shorts and the XL/2XL is perfect. One improvement would be a second pocket.

Love my TS's

Love the color sage, next order I'll go with the next length down. These shorts are so comfortable I tell everyone give'em a try, you won't regret it. This is my 5th pair.

Buy these! Pockets!

I usually wear a Staple 9”, and I order it on the larger size so it’s more opaque. These are my first cargo and they feel much more substantial. I think I could have ordered down/true to size and been fine with the dark colors. I love the fact that nothing here binds or pinches or presses, and the 9” length hits me just above the knee at 5’5”. And, well, pocket! Perfectly fits my phone and is low enough it doesn’t pinch my phone into my hips or belly when I sit. I reduced many of my GI issues by switching to looser clothing and Thigh Society as lounge wear and under skirts. These are just great, so soft and a pocket! I will definitely be ordering more, and I tell any woman who will listen to buy some to try.

I’m a plus size lady and have looked for shorts that don’t squeeze me in like a sausage! They are comfortable!

New go to shorts

These shorts are so comfy. I’ve spent the day on the couch in them. I’ve spent the day hiking around tropical terrain in them. The pocket was amazing for hiking. I got them in black and they are opaque enough to wear as pants. I am 5’2”, 135lbs and got the S/M. They do not squeeze my legs or my tummy and they stay put! 10 out of 10 for me.
