In an article on www.plus-size-solutions.com, Undersummers are a prominent member of their list of solutions.
"These are also *not* made to suck you in – and you can actually just wear them in place of undies if you want a smooth line under your clothes. Plus, they’re *specifically* made to prevent chub rub so there are NO seams on the inner thighs! Score!!"
User "HappyBerry" on www.kinja.com was excited to see our semi-annual grab bag sale return and used her blog in GroupThink to share with everyone.
"I’m a bit of an Undersummers evangelist whenever the topic of chub rub under dresses comes up....I love mine. I think they are cute under dresses and comfy enough I’ll just wear them around the house. I love that they have a cotton gusset and are designed to be worn as underwear." ~"HappyBerry"
In an article educating readers about chafing, what causes it, and how to prevent it, the writers at www.skincareorg.com included Undersummers Shortlette Slip Shorts in their list of preventative measures.

" don’t ride up like bloomers/pettipants/slip shorts, and they don’t squish you like foundation garments." ~Erin
Here are some more of the amazing articles and blogs featuring our shortlettes.

"Lightweight and breathable, Undersummers Shortlettes will flatter your curves while protecting your thighs."

We were thrilled to be featured prominently on Buzzfeed.com's article addressing sweaty thighs.
"If you’re dealing with chronic chub rub and creams don’t cut it, get yourself a pair of these bad boys."
Undersummers' own CarrieRae is a featured fashion industry expert, discussing ways the industry is changing to be inclusive of all sizes in this Modern Wellness Guide article.
"Size and cut dictate how something fits, so ignore the number and pick clothes by how they fit and feel. Clothes that skim or hug the body without squeezing are more comfortable and more flattering, no matter what the size label says." ~CarrieRae
Casey, who pens the blog Adventures of a Part Time Wheeler references learning about Undersummers shortlettes from the xoJane article and adds her opinion.
"Holy cats are these things comfortable! I wouldn’t take them off that night and ended up sleeping in them instead of pajama bottoms." ~Casey

"They are made of a light weight, breathable slip fabric and are thin enough to wear as shorts under pretty much anything." ~Ruby
The Patented Lace Shortlette features a seamless inner thigh, stay-put leg, lightweight breathable fabric, cotton gusset, and LOTS of lace. CarrieRae never skimps on fabric or laces so these are the ultimate in affordable luxury.
These are the Shortlettes that will become your Go-To everyday favorite panty.
|Size (USA)||Waist (cm)||Hip (cm)|
|5X* Fusion only||137-147||157-163|
Shortlettes are generously sized to hug but not squeeze your curves. They are not compression and do not feel like nylons/hosiery, shapewear, bike shorts, or compression pants. Shortlettes are simply comfortable. They are not made to be tight, feel constricting, shape, pinch, or bind. The longer lengths allows for maximum chafe protection and comfort.
Correct Fit Guidelines:
✔️ Waist should not roll
✔️ Body should glide comfortably against the skin
✔️ Legs should not ride up while walking
Signs of Incorrect Fit:
✖️ Baggy crotch (too big)
✖️ Running at the seams/Wears to fast (too small)
✖️ Slides Down (too small)
✖️ Legs ride up (too small)
Which is the best fit?
Under 5'4" - High Thigh, Athletic, or Classic Styles
Plus Size - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace
Apple Shaped - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace
* Order the size in-between your waist and hip measurement. I.e. Waist 3X + Hip XL = Order 2X
Pear Shaped - Try them all!
Hourglass - Lace or High Thigh
Slender - High Thigh or Athletic
If the Shortlette is not baggy but slides down, it is probably a size too small. It needs to sit higher towards the natural waist in the back to stay put during normal activity.
