Please note: I was gifted these shortlettes from Undersummers – all opinions are my own!
I know what you’re all thinking: What kind of crazy blogger talks about shorts in the winter? Especially shorts that specifically have the word “summer” in the name? Uh, I do. That’s who. 😉
Anyways, I want to get real with y’all for a minute. And talk about something that’s…well, not very sexy. Chub rub. Ugh, I know. It’s painful, it doesn’t look great, and it’s just all-around annoying. So, when I heard that Undersummers by CarrieRae could solve the chub rub conundrum for me, my ears perked up really quickly.
I mean, let’s be honest: I wear dresses all year round. Especially in December, when there are holiday parties, soirees and fetes practically every day. With all that socializing and dancing comes, unfortunately, sweating! Sure, it’s not everyone’s favorite subject to talk about, but it’s real. And so is my struggle. But, not anymore!
These red shortlettes from Undersummers by CarrieRae are the perfect holiday accessory. They don’t roll up, they don’t slip down, and best of all, they prevent that no-good chafing. I danced, twirled, and mingled in these for hours, and they held up (pun fully intended).
It’s important to note that they’re not shapewear, so they’re not going to do a whole lot of smoothing, and they won’t suck you in. But they’ll stop your thighs from loving each other too much, which can help prevent thigh rub scarring or other skin irritations. The lack of “shaping” also makes these comfortable enough for all-day wear, which is a big plus for me. With my busy schedule, I need my outfits to stay wearable from morning into night – there’s nothing worse than having outfit regret halfway through a jam-packed day.
And another reason why I really adore these? Wind! All year long, I panic about gusts of wind giving me Marilyn Monroe moments at inconvenient times (uh, hello, walking into work). I’ve tried everything from wearing weightier fabrics (not a great solve in the summer with this Houston heat) to having pennies sewn into my hems (not worth the trouble). These shortlettes are a great solve. They come in a variety of fun colors, and they’re long enough to not expose too much thigh should you catch a breezy day.
Whether you’re getting ready for a holiday season full of fun, or you’re looking for a perfect, affordable, cute and functional gift to slip under the tree for your curvy bae, Undersummers by CarrieRae shortlettes are a great choice. They’re even lovely for lounging around the house with a loose tee or cozy sweater. These lovely lace shortlettes are a darling wardrobe staple, and right now, you can use code XOSARAH (case sensitive) to score 15% off.
With shortlettes this comfortable, I know I’ll be wearing even more dresses in the coming seasons.
