I have all sorts of different knickers for different occasions and outfits. I felt like I had things pretty much covered until I wore Undersummers. When I took them out of the beautiful bright yellow packaging my first reaction was "Wow, those are epic!" I very quickly realized that these substantial undies would actually make a couple of outfits much easier to wear.
The shortlettes feel like a pair of knickers (giant knickers admittedly, but knickers all the same) but behave like a slip. The silky material prevents your clothes clinging to you and the short design ensures your 'slip' stays in place all day because it can't bunch up.
I tried the bridal white shortletttes and had planned to wear them with my cream Reiss dress, however, the scalloped hem was too short for the Undersummers. I tried them again with my knee-length white skirt, long white skirt and wrap black and white dress - all three were a hit. The shortlettes are a little on the long side (or my skirts are a little on the short side!) but with the garments they suited, my Undersummers have been wonderful.
Here are my favourite things about these modern day bloomers:
1) They give you the seamless look of shapewear without the constriction
2) They have a cotton gusset so they're as comfortable as regular underwear
3) At $35 they are affordable
4) There are lots of colours and patterns to choose from
5) There are sizes to suit lots of different shapes from Kids to 5-6XL
I'm yet to try out the camisoles so I can't comment yet on the fit for larger busts. I'm seriously tempted by the hot pink so expect a follow up post! xx
