A wardrobe staple for me!

I get a lot of use of my Frankie shorts, mainly in summer. I'm plus sized so I wear them as slip shorts under dresses, with regular undies because I wear them so much and I don't want to wash as often, unless I get real sweaty.

In the winter I wear them over tights under my dresses, which still works as kind of a smoothing garment (I wish the seam on the waistband was not so prominent), but also makes my tights a lot more comfortable and they stay up better - not to mention prolonging the life of the tights since they don't rub together.

I sized down because the fabric is so stretchy, but I think I'm an anomaly. I have black, and I would not wear them as regular shorts because they are a bit sheer. But that makes them thin and great as an under layer!


Slightly tight on the bottom but should be good


So comfy and no static build up under my dress!

Love them

I planned on wearing these as underwear under my slimmer fitting dresses. I found they’re a little tight to pull up over my hips but once on, they fit beautifully and feel very comfortable. I got a vintage rose pair to wear under my lighter dresses and will probably get another pair in black down the track. I love that they don’t dig into my legs or ride up when I’m wearing them. I think the fit is a bit smoother for the Frankie’s than the Summit shorts.


I sized up because of the reviews, and I’m really glad I did. The waist is quite tight and not stretchy, but since it falls at my skinniest natural waist, it seems like it will be OK. They are much lighter weight fabric than the Terra leggings, but I think they’ll be good under dresses or skirts in the summer.
