Why You Need Maternity Anti Thigh Chafing Slip Shorts

Pregnancy brings all types of changes to our bodies, some are welcomed and expected, others like thigh chafing are an unforeseen nuisance.  For some women, thigh chafing, or the irritation of skin to skin contact is new during pregnancy.  Our bodies gain weight, especially in the hips and thighs while growing your beautiful baby which often causes thigh chafe. 

Wearing dresses is a fun and comfortable alternative especially during pregnancy as our bodies and bellies grow.  Dresses can be an inexpensive option for maternity wear as they can grow with us easily and often stay extra comfortable. 

The experience of thigh chafing may cause you to stop wearing those cute and comfortable dresses, so we recommend wearing a barrier product such as Shortlette Anti Thigh Chafing Shorts by Undersummers.  We offer a special maternity version which comfortably covers the belly all while protecting your thighs from thigh chafe. 


Pregnancy can be an uncomfortable time in our bodies, at Undersummers we want to help you be as comfortable as possible.  Check out our Maternity Shortlettes here.

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.
