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.

Comfy but itchy

It has a nice fit and is definitely comfortable, but there's an unexpected itchiness from when I first put it on. Even after putting it through the washer, the itchiness is still there. I still wear it hoping it'll go away. Sometimes I feel it more than other days. Overall, comfy and great for the gym.

Very Comfortable Shorts

I would have given these shorts a 5 rating but the only negative thing I can say is you cannot wear a pad in them. The pad gets very twisted and bunched up. This will prevent me from ordering another pair which I had every intention of doing.

Love this product

I always have problems with my underwear either riding up or showing lines in clothing. I look forward to giving these my full approval once I wear them to a few formal events.

Love these

Wish I got more of the original instead of cooling. The top did not roll and the legs did not ride up.

Good Fit

Good item, fits as described. This is my second pair. They are thin and like a partner to your undies. They help me with tummy and lthigh support.
