Frequently Asked Questions

Well, to start, they’re silky smooth under any outfit. But more importantly, if you run hot—and are one of those people who’s constantly setting the thermostat to “meat locker” temperature—these are going to be a revelation.

They’re made of hi-tech fabric that lowers the body temperature. (If you want to get geeky about it, the flat cross-section of the yarn offers a wide surface area that quickly releases body heat from your skin.) The yarn texturizing process gives the shorts incredible breathability; the finished ultra-thin fabric is a breeze to wear, literally.

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.

No riding up!!!

Have tried for the last couple years to find shorts I can wear under my dresses that don't ride up on the thigh. I have tried SO MANY different brands. I'm mad I let myself wait so long to try Thigh Society! I wear these for 8-10 hours a day walking for work, and no riding up once, even after washing.
So happy!!
True to size and perfect weight for chaffing.

Comfiest shorts ever

Comfiest shorts ever - they work well under long skirts. Absolutely perfect for hot summer weather too as they are very light.

Great but prefer the 7”

I love love these cooking shorts. I prefer the 7” over the 5” though as I find they ride up my legs at times, whereas the 7” don’t seem to.
I would love for these to be made into regular undies too or a 3” version. They also are quite high waisted which I’m ok with. May size down next time!

They're great!

These shorts actually do the job, my thighs don't chafe, they don't leave awful lines, and they stay shockingly dry!
