Flaunt Your Legs In Style: How to Wear a Dress With Shorts Underneath

If you’re looking for a chic and comfortable way to show off your legs while wearing a dress, look no further than the classic combination of a dress with shorts underneath. This fashion craze keeps you comfortable and adds a touch of glam and unique style to your look.

In this blog post, we'll guide you on wearing shorts underneath your skirts and dresses so you can wear this trend like a pro. 

How to Style Shorts Under Skirts and Dresses

1. Choose the Right Material

When selecting the perfect shorts or shortlettes to wear under your dress, material matters. Opt for slip shorts made from breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics. These materials keep you cool and dry, even on hot summer days. Plus, they should be easy to wash and maintain, ensuring they remain in top condition.

2. Embrace Soft and Stretchy Materials

The best shorts to wear under dresses are crafted from soft, stretchy materials that hug your body securely. These materials provide a smooth and comfortable feel, allowing you to move easily throughout the day. Say goodbye to discomfort and hello to confidence!

3. Avoid Chafing, Pilling, and Camel Toe

Nobody likes the discomfort of chafing or camel toe or dealing with pilling on their shorts. That's why it's essential to choose shorts with anti-chafing and anti-pilling features that fit your body right so you also avoid camel toe. These specialized anti-thigh chafing slip shorts ensure you stay camel toe and irritation-free while maintaining a polished appearance.

4. Lace Details for Extra Flair

If you want to add a touch of elegance to your outfit, consider slip shorts with lace details. Available in various colors and crafted from spandex blends, these shorts are both comfortable, sexy, and stylish. You'll love their lightweight feel and easy machine-washable nature.

5. High-Waist Band for a Snug Fit

For a secure fit that accentuates your waistline, look for shorts or shortlettes with a high-waist band. These shorts fit snugly around your waist, providing the perfect foundation for layering under dresses. With their soft, stretchable fabric, you'll stay comfortable and fashionable all day.

6. Versatile and Discreet

The beauty of shorts designed for dresses is their versatility. They are discreet and almost invisible, ensuring your outfit remains the center of attention. Whether wearing a dress for a special occasion or just a casual day out, shorts have got you covered.

7. Explore a Rainbow of Colors

Don't limit yourself to one color. Express yourself! Shorts come in a variety of shades, allowing you to match them with your dresses or mix and match them for a fun, stand-out kind of look. Show your unique style with the perfect pair of colorful or patterned slip shorts.

Meet our founder: CarrieRae

Undersummers Shortlettes were created CarrieRae's personal need for comfortable thigh protection when she was working as a teacher. In 2011, her thick thighs rubbed and she needed a comfortable solution.  Pants are blazing hot in the Houston spring/summer months, shorts are not acceptable to wear to work, so she was left with capris and dresses.  Her thighs did not support wearing dresses, thigh chafing was too uncomfortable.  The idea of wearing a breezy dress sounded so comfortable to her, that she created the solution to her problem:  The Original Lace Shortlette®️. She wanted something to wear that was a single layer, the legs stayed put, comfy, and most importantly, pretty.
