In this detailed guide, we’ll delve into the reasons behind this common wardrobe dilemma and provide practical solutions to keep it at bay so you can step out confidently.

Understanding Camel Toe: Causes and Solutions

What Causes Camel Toe?

Camel toe often makes its unwelcomed appearance when women opt out of wearing panties beneath tight fighting bottoms, like yoga pants, spandex shorts, leggings, and swimsuits. To gracefully sidestep this issue, selecting the right size and shape of clothing becomes crucial. For those uncertain about their ideal size, embark on a fitting room adventure, trying on different pairs of pants or other bottoms until the perfect fit for your body type is found.

Over-stretched fabrics can also contribute to camel toe, particularly during dynamic activities like running, squats, or yoga poses. You can avoid this camel toe problem by buying Undersummers leggings or bike shorts with gussets. What are gussets? You may have gusset! That little extra fabric feature in the groin area ensures your clothing stays in place during all your movement adventures.

Thicker Fabrics as a Solution to Camel Toe

Thicker fabrics, such as rayon and spandex, play a dual role by minimizing the likelihood of camel toe and smoothing out any lines or wrinkles on the legs. Not only do these fabrics enhance comfort, but they also establish a polished appearance.

Multiple Seams to Avoid Camel Toe

For those seeking extra protection against camel toe mishaps, consider garments with multiple seams. These additional seams contribute to a more structured design, reducing the risk of fabric misadventures in the crotch region.

Breathable, Loose Fitting Materials to Avoid Unwanted Lines

Avoiding clingy materials like terry and velour is essential, as these fabrics tend to exacerbate camel toe by moving into the crotch area, causing discomfort by digging into you in all the wrong places. Opt for materials that provide a graceful drape without clinging too tightly for a more comfortable experience and seamless appearance.

The Game-Changer: Properly Sized Undergarments

The ultimate solution in your quest for a camel-toe-free life lies in the power of properly sized undergarments. Embrace the comfort and confidence that boy shorts, hipster panties, or shortlettes provide, ensuring a seamless silhouette and eliminating camel toe from sight.

ABOUT US

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.
