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.

The cargo option is great and comfortable! This is a great option for those that have an insulin pump with tubing, fyi!

Like Them, Heavy for Summer no

I like these and wear them around the house with a tee shirt. The material is heavier than any other style which will be great under clothing in the fall and spring. I find the waist is quite large, almost three inches bigger than any of the other styles. The pocket is cute but I don’t find myself using it much. I placed my phone there and didn’t like the budge. Could be handy for a house key if I go out walking. The fabric is quite substantial and seems like it will wear well. I own many pairs of Thigh Society products and find they last and last and last. This is my third year on some of them and they appear brand new! Yes, they are expensive but I feel they are worth it!

Well, my trip to Europe was chili, so I was happy to have these for an event I had to wear a dress. But I think I would still wear them on warm days. They fit great, didn’t ride up, and the pocket is fantastic. I had on a flowy dress, and pocket made the side of the dress funny, but that wasn’t the shorts fault.

Finally a comfortable option

Love the fit and comfort of these. I’ve tried other options and they felt too tight or too hot or too limiting. The stretch on these is great.
