I was super excited to review the Jockey® Skimmies® Slipshort ~ a revolutionary undergarment for every dressing dilemma!
I immediately fell in love with the softness and texture of Skimmies. The lightweight, silky-smooth material provided flexibility and full range of motion. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the slipshort did NOT suck the life out of my thighs and abdomen like some "other" popular undergarments. I know you know what I'm talking about. Sure, you might look super cute and tight in that sexy dress, but your body is SCREAMING: "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WOMAN! Take off the constrictive, fat-sucker-upper spandex before you pass out!!!" Skimmies are the perfect amount of support and comfort.
Jockey has brilliantly categorized 4 different types of dressing dilemmas for the modern woman. See if you can relate...
1. Friction Affliction: A bow-legged stride that aims to keep a dreaded thigh fire from ruining your day.
2. Namaste-dry: For when the hard work pays off but sweating isn't your style.
3. ShakeDown: A classic move combines one part wiggle and two parts tug, brought about by all over static cling.
4. FlashCycle: Trying to keep covered when an unexpected breeze picks up.
I know which one I struggle with the most, and because I love you, I'll confess... I am a long time sufferer of the Friction Affliction, a.k.a. "fire thighs". I know it's hard to believe, but I have been void of the mythical "upper-thigh-gap" since I was in junior high, folks! And I'm okay with that. But BOY, do I hate feeling my upper thighs rubbing together.
So, I decided to put Skimmies to the test with 3 of my go-to summer outfits:
First up, the Sunday Morning Church Ensemble:
Pet peeve: When a woman is wearing a thong under a dress/skirt and the material gets bunched up in her booty crack. Nobody wants to see that! Well, no worries with these nifty Skimmies. Nice and smooth.
As a mom of quadruplet 7 year olds, I am constantly bending over to pick up the 49 legos that were strategically dropped on the floor (or something of the like). With this slipshort, I do not have to worry about flashing any brethren. Score! I already give it two thumbs up.
Outfit numero dos~ Hospital Issued Uni-Sex Scrubs. BLAH.
I was hesitant to layer shorts under my scrub pants for fear of feeling like a stuffed animal. I mean, I'm running around like a crazy person at work and the last thing I need is more layers to slow me down. But y'all, the Friction Affliction is REAL. Something about the way these loose fitting scrub pants lay, just rubs the mess out of my upper, inner thighs. It absolutely drives me bonkers!
Status report: I LOVED them. You could not see the outline of the shorts under my pants whatsoever and I was comfy-cool all day long. NO THIGH RASH! Yay! (It's the little things, people...)
My last ensemble was the Summer Fun Girls Night Out.
What better way to bring in the summer, than with a cute pair of white pants?! Am I right, ladies?! But I'm not going to lie...white pants scare the bejesus outta me. I feel so vulnerable in them. Can people see straight through to my panties? What if I sneeze/laugh/cough too hard? What if "Aunt Flo" comes for an early visit and I'm not prepared? --All terrifying scenarios that can be magically whisked away with the wearing of the Skimmies slipshort. Once again, you could not see the short lining and I was SO incredibly comfortable all night long!
The BEST part of these Jockey Skimmies is the price! They retail for $20-$22 and are worth every penny.
There are 3 different styles to choose from (I reviewed the Original Microfiber Skimmies):
Original Skimmies- Smooths like a slip, covers like shorts. Offers a smooth, polished look under fitted-to-flowing skirts and dresses. Available in short and regular lengths. Silky-smooth microfiber stretch fabric for smoothing coverage without restriction.
Anti-static Skimmies- Resists static and allows clothes to glide. Wear under pants or other cotton fashions and say good-bye to cling. Wide, flat leg hem for a stay-put fit. Targeted stretch zones flatter your natural curves.
Wicking Skimmies- Breathable mesh panels keep you comfortable and dry all day. Perfect for working out. Moisture-wicking, quick dry fabric helps prevent chafing.
