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.
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 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 !
