Spring Break Essentials

Are you a college student taking a tropical getaway or an adventurous bachelor looking for an adventure, spring break is the ideal time to escape reality and unwind.

Before you can truly relax and unwind, it's essential to pack thoughtfully. So we've put together some essentials for making your spring break trip as stress-free and enjoyable as possible!

Slip Shorts

Slip shorts are essential when heading out on vacation or just relaxing by the pool. Not only do they layer nicely under dresses and skirts, but they also protect your thighs from chafing while biking or working out.

Reviewers report these shorts are comfortable and breathable. Crafted with a blend of cotton and spandex, they provide an airy feel but won't move when you move.

These anti-chafing slip shorts come in an array of colors and are opaque enough to cover your mid-legs. Plus, they boast a wide, flat elastic waistband that won't roll down when you bend or walk. With over 10,000 reviews to date, these anti-chafing slip shorts have earned many admirers.

Swim Cover Ups

When packing for spring break, make sure you have the appropriate swimsuits, sunglasses and sandals. You may also want to bring along a swimsuit cover up just in case.

When it comes to swim cover ups, there is an array of styles and silhouettes to choose from. Dresses, tees, tunics and caftans can all be tailored for various occasions depending on your preferences.

For the ideal beach-worthy cover up, try our Swim Short. Keep your thighs happy at the shore in style!

Anti-Chafing Shorts

Do you enjoy wearing dresses and skirts during the summer but hate having chaffing on your thighs? Consider investing in some anti-chafing shorts. These clever garments help prevent thigh chafing by creating a barrier between legs that stops friction and rub that causes chafing.

One effective option for preventing thigh chafing is wearing shorts with a full rise and gusset. These type of shorts have become popular, as many users report that they stay in place all day to prevent uncomfortable itching on your thighs.

Other Essentials

When packing for spring break, it's essential to include items that will keep you secure and healthy while traveling. A first aid kit, mosquito repellent products, and sunscreen with SPF should all be on your list.

For those who plan on spending a lot of time in the water, water-resistant beach towels are an invaluable asset. These microfiber towels dry quickly and won't absorb sand like traditional bath towels will.

Likewise, wearing sunglasses while out and about can protect you from the sun's damaging rays. For a fashionable twist, try these polarized sunglasses.

Finally, packing a packable rain jacket is always beneficial. Not only will it take up minimal space in your suitcase, but you can use it as either an effective cover during the day or even an outer layer if it rains while out exploring or at a night club.

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.
