The Staple (maternity-friendly)

$39 CAD

The Staple short is versatile for all life stages and so ultra-stretchy that it can even be worn through maternity and postpartum. The Staple slip short offers buttery-soft comfort with light support from early pregnancy to chasing after your toddler and beyond. Grab your regular size for the first trimester, size up for your second and third, and use either (or both!) when your bun is out of the oven.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are downy soft and super stretchy, which makes them sort of irresistibly versatile—in other words, they’re so multifaceted, they could win an EGOT. (You know how magazines are always talking about “day to night” clothing? This is actually it.)

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are buttery soft and stretch to twice their size without bagging or sagging, making them perfect to accommodate a growing belly during pregnancy and beyond.

Thigh Society shorties are totally bump-friendly — they don’t compress you or suck you in like shapewear. Instead, they’re a lightly smoothing, 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, and is designed to stay in place without rolling down. The waistband is like the Loch Ness Monster: you’ll doubt it really exists.

Our shorts stretch up to 2x their size without bagging or sagging, making them perfect for your pre-and-post-partum journey. We recommend sticking with your regular size for the first trimester, and sizing up for the second and third. Then you can continue wearing both once your baby is here!

Our shorts are made from the highest quality yarns that are soft and silky-smooth against the skin — even surgical scars. The Staple short acts as a light barrier, helping protect scars and stitches from snagging against your clothes.

Legs Roll Up, Defeats Purpose

I was so excited to try these after reading everyone's positive reviews. I was quickly left disappointed as the legs rolled up after each time I had to bend over or sit down (ie. put on shoes, get into car, sit at my desk, etc.). It was incredibly uncomfortable, nevermind defeating the purpose of preventing thigh rub.

Sadly, I have wasted almost $100 as I purchased two pairs and won't wear either.

High priced under britches!

I have never purchased these before, I like them! I feel a little funny wearing underpants under my underpants. These after wearing this weekend are strictly to avoid chaffing, good work!

Smooth and comfortable

I bought two pairs, one 5 and one 7 inch. Both are perfect under dresses, providing coverage for confidence & a bit of slimming. I was impressed by how stretchy they are, and how I was able to barely give them a thought after putting them on and going about the day. They’re also great under jeans! I love how thin the fabric is, yet it doesn’t feel cheap or that it’s going to easily rip or tear. I would definitely buy again.

Very comfortable, but a little too warm for me

I am looking for something that stops the chafe, but doesn't add to my interior volcano. While, for sure, very comfortable, these were just a bit TOO warm for my comfort level, and not what I wanted. Ultimately, I have ended up with The Cooling, and they are terrific for my purposes. Fabric is comfy, sizing works well with my too generous thighs and waistline (5', 190 lbs)
