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.

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.

Super comfee

Very soft, very comfortable. Everything the ad said. Next time I’ll size down for just a little more compression.

Easy and comfortable

I wore these under a dress today in 100 degree heat. They were easy and comfortable. I'll reach for them again and again. Thank you!

Robust fabric, stretchy and SUPER comfy

Heavy, stretchy material. I wish I'd ordered the 7" the 9" a little long. Super comfy, worn all day under skirt with zero complications. Rolls a little at the waist but does not make me dislike because they are so comfortable!

The Original 5"

I had a long wait for The Original XS 5" in black but it was worth the wait!
The fit is perfect! I am using the 5" under short summer skirts and anything over 5" would have been too long. The Original has a soft and comfortable feel. I am using them for long dog walks in the summer heat being completely comfortable!
