I love these panties
These are the best things since sliced bread. They don't ride up, down, or sideways. They never end up in my butt crack.

The darker colored ones are comfortable for me to lounge around the house in during hot flashes. They are great under dresses (no thigh rub) although they aren't completely static free so they stick to some fabrics. There's none of that "swish, swish" sound that you get with heavy duty girdle type panties.

I throw them in the wash with the regular laundry and so far they've held up just fine. I have a bunch in several colors - and although they aren't cheap, I definitely feel I have gotten my money's worth. I check often and buy any that are on sale.

These are not shaper or girdle type panties/shorts. They won't rearrange your lumps and bumps. But they will hide the cellulite ripples that show through thin slacks. Best of all, no chafing, no riding up, and you can breathe.

For reference, I'm 5'3", 185 lbs, and 50 yrs old. I wear XL.

So Disappointed!!
Really excited to see this type of item. Order 2 but am so disappointed in product. Item is not as pictured. They have very (very) high waistband - similar to pantyhose where you have so much waistband that you tuck it into your bra line. Picture shows waist at or below normal waist line but that is clearly not the product they made. Would prefer if they took boy short panties and just added the longer legs to them for skirts, etc.

Very comfortable!
I like a little extra layering under a skirt to feel more secure, but I get tired of wearing suck-you-in spanx when I don't need them under certain styles. These little shorts fixed that problem. My only complaint is that they ride a little higher than I expected.
March 8, 2015
Comfort personified!
A great product that makes me feel "together" by adding comfort without a slip. Stays in place and doesn't ride up!
March 18, 2015
Bad sizing
A great idea spoiled by bad sizing. I am 5'4" and this certainly didn't fit as illustrated. The waistband came up over my ribs and had to be folded over and the legs came to the top of my knees and showed below my dress. The length of the garment should be shorter and they should consider making it in petite sizing.
April 22, 2012
I am so happy to find a slip length under garment that doesn't cut off my circulation! These are super comfortable and will allow me to wear dresses without panty hose and not have to worry about chaffing caused by sweaty thighs.

Great All around shorts
Wonderful, I wear them around the house because of their comfort and stretch. Tough to beat

Can't Live without!
Love these! Wear everyday under dresses! I first purchased 2 pair (nude & black) & then about a month later 2 more pair & then a month later 2 more. So I have 6 pair & love them! They are so comfy & I feel secure when I move around in a dress. They wash up fabulous!
August 9, 2012
Exactly What I Wanted
I wear these under skirts and dresses because I don't like pantyhose and hate it when my thighs rub together. These are the perfect replacement for the worn out bicycle shorts/ exercise pants I used to wear that are now totally worn to shreds. I will probably get other colors.

After reading reviews of others about this item, I thought I'd give it a try since I'm looking for something with light support that's also comfortable.
Amy P on Aug 22, 2016
I like the product because no chafing for chubby thighs, and no tight elastic on the legs. Comfort is the key reason.

wicking and comfort and sale
Robin L on Aug 20, 2016
I wanted a trunk leg panties to wear under short and mid-length skirts and dresses. I want coverage with comfort, and breathable material. I expect this to not roll up in the thigh or roll down at the waist. Also hope they launder well and long lasting. I do not want something tight like a shape-wear. I hope this meets my expectation.

Slipshorts are perfect for under skirts and dresses in either hot and humid weather or breezy weather. They are a bit more modest than panties but also help avoid inner thigh chafing. They also help skirts and dresses lie flat on your body with no extra lines.
Jessica R on Aug 17, 2016
"comfortable, covers potential embarrassing exposure

A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you very much for your question, and for your interest in our Jockey Skimmies Sllipshort. We offer our Skimmies in two different lengths. Our regular length version, style 2109 has an inseam measurement of 9" while our shorter length version, style 2108 has an inseam measurement of 8".
Are these intended to be underwear, or are panties still necessary underneath?
Rebafay on Nov 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have worn them with panties and without, I prefer to wear them with panties. Skimmies are for comfort and security when wearing a skirt, or to prevent chafing. But they are so light, it's like wearing nothing at all, so wear panties with them.
how does Skimmers compare to Spanx ?
Mickee H on Sep 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Skimmies is not a shpewear/suport undergarment It does not hold you in or push anything above the waist into a muffin top. Skimmies is great if you have issues with chafing of your thighs It stops the chaffing. They are breathable and let me go barelegged all summer with no chafing. They let my summer dresses slip smoothly over the skimmies like a good slip and not get caught on the fabric of my under pants They eliminate panty lines under summer dresses .
Do they give control?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can only answer for my size and what I wear over the Jockey skimmies... I get added comfort and some moderate control but that is not the case if I am bloated excessively, or just ate a large meal. I Love to wear these under all my dresses, spandex/spandes mixed sport pants, and they do not hep control any belly overage if I wear my low waisted jeans as my jeams push belly up around the bnad of the jeans. Love the feel and comfort of wearing these most everyday! great to hide seams and lines of undergarment. I am 125 lbs a at 5ft,4inch. Lrg oned females probably would get some control, if they buy a smaller size, they do stretch up over belly quite a bit without slipping down. I love these and will buy more!
Do these work well under pants?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wear these under riding (horses) pants, both technical fabric ones and jean. Breeches are designed to be pretty form-fitting and I find these work quite well, no problem with rolling or slippage or clinging--things you definitely want to avoid while riding.
How long are they?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Our Jockey Skimmies Slipshort feature a 7 inch inseam length when stretch to the worn position. Hope this helps!
Do shimmies roll or slip down your stomach?
Susan w on Dec 12, 2014

All the pix show thin models wearing the Skimmies below the naval. Is that where they're supposed to fit? This would create a major muffin top. Can these be worn higher - comfortably?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi, this garment is very easily worn about the waist. I have several pairs of these (I am what would be considered a plus size lady) and I wear them failry high on my waist to give a nice smoothing affect between my shirts and my pants.
would these be used for wicking and under volleyball pants?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The regular skimmies wouldn't do too well for wicking. There are other styles that say they wick away the moisture, but I have not tried them.
To be clear, I like the Skimmies slip short, but i think you should look at the ones that are described as wicking moisture away.
What's the inseam length?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our traditional length skimmies have an inseam of 7 inches.
do I choose a size larger in the slip shorts than my regular size?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi, our skimmies tend to run true to size or a little big. I suggest purchasing your proper size based on our size chart. If the size is not right for you we offer free returns and exchanges on every order.
Are Skimmies worn instead of underwear (panties)?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wear panties under mine. But my daughter just adds a panty liner pad and wears the skimmies alone. They do NOT creep up! Very comfy.
Do you wear these with underwear underneath?
Mary Anna on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can but you don't have to. At certain times of the month I have. It feels a little strange at first. But I got used to them quickly. They actually very comfortable. Hope that helps.
Does these ride up + is there any elastic around the leg?
Raquel D on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello, no they hold in place and are very comfortable. No rolling at the waist either. I purchased several of them and I love everything about them. Color choices are nice, if you like a short hemline they are great!
how short are these under a dress are they above the knee?
Debbie B on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Debbie, they come down to about mid thigh or a little past. We also have short length version that comes just past the top of the thigh. It is style 2108 and can be found at the following link:

How to wash on washer?
A shopper on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, we suggest washing them in cold and tumble dry on low. To prevent pilling only wash with like fabrics. Items like denim and towels are rough and can pull the microfiber fabrics and cause pilling. Otherwise, you can just wash and dry as normal.
I bought a few pairs of these and after a few wears they are sticking to my skirts/dresses-- anyone have that issue and figure out how to get them to unstick? It's not static it's just the material clinging to the clothes on top...
Lauren W on May 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry to hear that the skimmies created static cling. Please call one of our personal shoppers at 1-800-562-5391 and we will be happy to have them exchanged for you.
I have skirts that are a bit see-through. Do I need to wear a slip or will a skimmie due for modesty?
A shopper on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question, and one of the main reason we created the Jockey Skimmies Slipshorts. They provide a great deal of modesty when wear a sheer dress or skirt, and is an excellent alternative to traditional slips. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our personal shoppers at 1-800-562-5391.
I have 2 pair which I love. They don't roll down on the belly and the legs stay in place. My problem is are they going to be hot in the summer and do they make them in a material that is lighter?
Betty P on Mar 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! We actually have a version of our Skimmies specifically designed for working out and those hot weather days. I would suggest our Jockey Wicking Skimmies Slipshort. This style features a moisture wicking fabric and design to help draw moisture away from your skin to provide quick drying and a comfortable feel. You can find this style at: If you had any questions about this style, please do not hesitate to ask!
Do these come in a pant length?
Jessica L on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jessica, I am very sorry but this item is not currently made in a pant length. I will pass on the suggestion to our product development team.
Is the waistline really low rise as shown in the photos? Or does it come up higher in the larger sizes? I am 5 ft. with a very short rise and all such undergarments either come up to my ribs or have lots of extra room in the crotch!

Jockey® Skimmies® Short Length Wicking Slipshort
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry for the confusion, these are not low rise items. They come to the natural waist. They do come slightly lower then the waist on the models because they tend to be very tall and have long torsos.
which is the best length to wear under leggings and jeans?
Tamara K on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry.
The Skimmies are available in 2 different lengths and I have found that either length is comfortable no matter what I am wearing.
However, I have never tried wearing Skimmies under leggings. Leggings are skin tight and you will see the bands underneath. So, I'm not quite sure I would recommend them under leggings.

Have a nice day!
I bought a couple of pairs of these, love, love the fabric and the feel when I first put them on. However, I'm having a problem with the legs riding up. Should I go up or down in size? I really want to make these work, I love them that much. Thanks
Louise P on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am very sorry to hear that they didn't fit quite right on the first try. The rolling problem comes from when the item is too small. I suggest going up a size and your issues should be resolved.
Dear Sir,

I had purchased your CAPRI SKIMMIES nearly ten years ago and sadly you discontinued making them. For medical reasons these are so much needed. Please help me to get my hands on them. I so desperately need them . Where can I find them? Thank you !
Juanita A on Feb 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your feedback! I sure wish we could have found more people like you, who would like to purchase that particular product. It was retired due to poor sales performance, and our very last inventory was liquidated on We put our hearts into that product here at Jockey, and so we were all sad to see it go. We will pass your feedback on to our merchandising and sales staff as products are often brought back when consumer demand is great enough.
Question for Jockey: This staycool fabric is just amazing. Would it be possible to use it for Skimmies? The regular Skimmies in microfiber are pretty warm, and the wicking ones fit tighter and have an absolutely bizarre waistband that is several inches lower in the back. The staycool fabric is so soft, silky and comfortable and it absolutely does what it says. Would be perfect for Skimmies.

BEST ANSWER: We're always looking for new opportunities, and my manager says that he will pass your suggestion along. There was a time when we didn't make underwear, just socks. But then we took a chance on something new, and now our underwear is sold in over 120 countries around the world. So, rest assured, we've learned to carefully consider new opportunities. Thank you for your feedback!
