Fit is not quite right in the waist
I purchased three of these and was very pleased with the fabric and feel of the garment until I tried it on. It fit great every where except waist. It was perfect in front but "rode" very low in the back. It was almost as if I had it on backwards. I looked and the tag was in the back. The bonus is that the fabric and feel was great. I have sent them back ONLY because of the fit at the waist. I don't like pants/shorts that fit "below the waist" so this would not have worked for me. It was not advertised as "below the waist" but it definitely was in the back. However, that being said, I still love Jockey and Jockey underwear and will order the styles I know fit--just not this particular item.

my favorite skimmies
I love Skimmies. They offer modesty, solve the panty line issue, and prevent my legs from rubbing.

I have tried all of the Skimmies and this is my favorite. The originals are fine, but there is a static problem and although I like the fabric of the anti static style, they are impossible to keep up.

This style runs the smallest of all three. In fact, there isn't much consistency in the sizing at all.

A cotton crotch would be nice
It'd be nice if they had a cotton, or similar soft crotch so you could attach a pants-liner.

Great product - needs a little tweak
Great product to wear under a skirt - prevents legs rubbing together and is much cooler than the earlier skimmies (I had no complaints about them -just decided to try these). But the wide waistband tends to roll and this shows under smooth fitting dresses. Works well under skirts with a waistband. Also the back is lower than the front and I do not have a large butt. I have tried not pulling them up as high and pulling them up higher - neither helps. Wearing them backwards does help a little. The legs don't ride up like the ones on the shorter version of the skimmies sometimes do.

FINALLY, A PAIR OF COMFORTABLE PANTIES!!
I have not been able to find comfortable panties for years. I don't know if it's my shape or the patterns of the ready-to-wear but NOTHING is ever comfortable - I'm constantly pulling down on the lower edge to keep the back edges under by butt cheeks. I abhor panty lines and these Skimmies take care of that little problem too! I'm extremely sensitive to pressure so can't wear anything tight so I purchase these one size too big. I am SO happy to find a model that doesn't incorporate the 'girdle effect' like all the others, just COMFORT and COVERAGE - the C & C model - they still stay up but I have no pressure anywhere. My only question is what are they going to feel like during the hot summer months in the desert where I live? I'm dreaming of a Skimmie model that is designed just like this one but made with an open, airy summer fabric. I LOVE THESE SKIMMIES PLEASE NEVER STOP MAKING THEM and NEVER ADD 'CONTROL' TO THIS MODEL!!!! Yes, I know there are models with shorter legs that would be cooler but I've had such bad luck over the years I'm afraid to try them, thinking they will work their way up in the back - I think my particular shape NEEDS the longer leg to be the most comfortable.

No VPL & No Thigh-Dent
I'm in my 40s, 5'7" and a size 6-8 pear. I bought these in size M and they fit perfectly. I had been wearing a hot, confining capri shaper just to avoid VPL; mid-thigh shapers would fix my VPL but also gave me a mid-thigh dent. I was an early adopter of original Skimmies and still wear them under loose skirts, but on me they're visible under slacks. This Skimmies version takes "pretty good" to "great." I don't know about moisture-wicking, as I've only worn them in my 65-degree office, but I can say they eliminate VPL (I wear them over a thin nylon panty for a bit more booty control) and the legbands are undetectable on my thighs (a FIRST). My 2nd favorite feature after the invisible legbands is the waistband, which I think is knit the same way and sits about an inch below the navel. I don't need anything cinching my already small waist, and it's nice to have nothing touching me there or protruding above the waistband of my slacks. Finally, this fabric is thin enough to not add bulk underneath anything, even jeans, and it glides nicely under my clothes. Although the waistband stays put on me, the legbands do tend to ride up some, but they still don't ever show, and they still feel much better than spandex all the way down over my knees! I've washed & dried them once (cold water/delicate/low heat), and they came out looking new.

Best unmentionables ever
Oh my gosh, I LOVE these things! So cool and comfortable (and I'm at the "personal summer moment" time of my life). No more legs rubbing together in the heat. Bleh!

I'm a pear shape, 5'6", 170 lbs, size 8 panties and the XXL fit perfect. I have no problems with rolling waistbands, everything stays put.

Disappointing
I wanted to use these as "slip shorts" but they made my dress cling horribly. Even after I wet them they were still clinging in a matter of a couple of minutes. I had to go the the ladies room, remove them and stick them in my purse.

What I love and what I don't
I am a tall, athletic woman with a more straight shape (and an average buttock). The wicking Skimmies would be better if the waistband was improved. You would think that with my straight shape that the waistband wouldn't be a problem, but it feels "loose" compared to the same size in the regular Skimmies. Also, the buttock area of the Skimmie doesn't have enough coverage as compared to the front. That is, when you pull them into position, the rear waistband is several inches lower than the front waistband. When you lower the front waistband to match the rear, the waistband becomes looser. Then the Skimmies turn into a sort of "hipster" length Skimmie. That waistband position actually is probably better for a lot of pants versus the regular Skimmies (which are pretty high-waisted). I can only imagine though what someone with a more curvy shape would experience. I mean, the waist would probably feel really loose.
I'm keeping the two pair I have, but hope the next version is improved in fit.

I have worn these often for a couple of years, now, but I have discovered that they are probably the cause of frequent infections. I must have cotton.

What is the difference between wicking and cooling skimmies? I have hormonal imbalance and am always hot and sweating. I currently have wicking but wonder if cooling would be better or even better yet would be a wicking/cooling combo!

Does anyone where these for exercise,… Like under biking shorts?
Kathi on Jul 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathi, the wicking slipshorts are perfect for wearing underneath workout clothing. The wicking properties help prevent moisture pooling and pull the moisture away from the skin so it can evaporate quickly.
How do these compare to non wicking ones?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, the fit and comfort should be the same. The wicking variety offers a tight weave mesh that allows for breathability and is also treated to help pull moisture to the surface to help prevent moisture collection.

Is Jockey going to fix the sizing problem where different slipshorts fit differently (the wicking fits the smallest)?
Cali Kali on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for letting us know about the fit issue across different skimmies styles. Due to different fabrications the fit can be slightly different across the collection. I will pass on your complaint to our product development team.
Jockey, why did you make the waist so low in the back? Are you going to fix this problem?
Cali Kali on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I noticed that as well. I pull them up in back first then adjust the front accordingly. So far they stay in place that way. Glad you asked that though. Thought it was my imagination!

BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The primary difference between these two styles are how they deal with that moisture that can occur from daily activities. Our Cooling Slipshorts help to regulate body temperature to allow for a more cooling feeling, while our wicking slipshorts are designed to wick away any moisture should it occur during wear. Hope this helps!

Skimmies with wicking have been a godsend for me! So, I was excited to see the new cooling skimmies but, disappointed to learn hat they don't also have the wicking fabric. With summer rapidly approaching, the combination of a "cool" fabric and wicking would be a fantastic option for me. Is this on the way?
Carole D on Mar 17, 2016
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!
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.

Why aren't these made larger than 2X? They would be perfect for a couple of friends of mine but I can't recommend it because the 2X actually runs quite small in the wicking, much tighter than in the microfiber (especially with the bizarre low back, which I hope gets fixed for the next production), and they are a size or two larger then me. You are missing a huge market. Who do you think most needs moisture wicking and protection from thigh rubbing?
Cali Kali on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although our Skimmies Wicking Slipshort is not available in 3X and above right now, our merchandising and design team is currently considering whether perhaps our collections are too restrictive in terms of size. So, they've asked us to forward on to them any feedback which would tend to confirm that hypothesis. So I will be forwarding your online product review on to them for review. Thank you for your feedback!
I have to wear thigh high compression stockings. I wonder how well the tops of the stockings meet the legs of the skimmies?
Kathy on Aug 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. Our Jockey Skimmies Wicking Slipshort is designed to extend to the middle of the thigh. They have an inseam measurement of 7 inches. Hope this helps.
I saw these in a store today, and I would really love to try them. I can't stand to wear pantyhose, and for several years I wore regular tee shirt type knit shorts under dresses and skirts to keep my thighs from rubbing, along with trouser socks (my skirts were all long enough for that to work). My dilemma is what size to get. I have worn size 8 French cut Jockey panties forever, and even they get looser with age. Most of my regular clothes are 1X-2X, though according to your size chart my waist would fit a size 3X and my hips would be even bigger. In addition, many of the reviews by customers said they run small, and to get a larger size than usually worn. Since 2X is the largest sold, I really don't have that option. It makes no sense at all not to sell these in larger sizes. Do designers think big woman don't care about how we look or feel in our clothes, or don't need to worry about sweat and chafing? Seems to me that we need them as much if not more than small women. Anyway, I would ordinarily buy a 2X, but after reading the reviews I have no idea if that would fit right. I don't mind a snug fit as long as it will stay in place without rolling down at the waist or up on the legs, but I don't want to feel like I'm wearing my mother's girdle. Any advice?

What is the length on the two different skimmies?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. The difference in length will be two inches. The standard size has an inseam measurement of 7" while our short length has an inseam measurement of 5". Hope this helps.
Are the skimmies sold in stores?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a really good question. Jockey products are sold at the following department stores:

Bloomingdales
Boscovs
Boston Store
Carson Pirie Scott
Herberger's
JC Pennys
Kohls
Lord & Taylor
Macys
Younkers

The retailers do not always stock all the products we ship to them in all of their stores: some stores carry some Jockey products, other stores carry other Jockey products. I'm sorry we don't have records to determine what products are in each store.

Hope this helps!
why is the color you call "LIGHT " not available in briefs ?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Although we don't offer our Jockey Women's Underwear in light right now, I am making a note of it in our database for our merchandisers. They've been looking for consumer insights to help them in their color selection, and so we really appreciate you taking the time to contact us. You never know -- your feedback may just change our underwear (at least in terms of color offerings).
