Summer Survival Gear: A Thigh Society Short Review

Thigh Society Shorts

Thigh Society Shorts – c/o Thigh Society

I love dresses in the summer heat, but I’m always nervous about going out and about in them. New Orleans is very much a walking city – in many neighborhoods, it’s easier to walk from one end to the other than to catch public transit to get there. There’s also always the risk of your skirt blowing up in the wind, which looks cuter on Marilyn Monroe than on most regular people. Thigh Society shorts solve both of these problems without the extra hold that shapewear gives, which is perfect for this hot summer weather.

So are these insanely cute? As you can see, not really. What they are is incredibly comfortable, moisture wicking and seamless. Even I will sometimes take comfort over cuteness, especially when it comes to walking around in hot weather. These are perfect for summer festivals as well as under work clothes when you want to feel covered without wearing another tight shapewear layer.

I’ve had my pair for awhile and they’ve washed and worn extremely well. While they’re more expensive than some options out there ($38 a pair) they’ve also held up much better than other types of shorts that I’ve tried. I’m going to go ahead and pick up a second pair for myself at some point in the future, probably in black.

    I always go out in shorts under my skirt! Either that or leggings. That’s the only way I’ll wear a skirt 🙂 Have you tried pettipants? Those are awesome too… it combines shorts and slip together so you don’t have to wear the extra underlayer with unlined skirts 🙂

      I have not tried pettipants – although I have some dresses that could use some. Where do you get yours?

    Another great photo! How are these for riding up? I tried the Jockey slip short but got frustrated at the way the leg rode up. I wonder if Thigh Society’s have this problem, and if not, whether this is part of the reason for the higher price.

      They don’t ride up at all! I hadn’t tried other brands, I actually didn’t know that was an issue. They’re great for walking around lots because of that.
