Our comments: In sizing tests our testers reported that these slip shorts fitted very slightly more snugly than our regular antichafing knickers, and many of them preferred this. However if you’re on the upper edge of the size and prefer the soft ‘not wearing anything’ feel, then consider sizing up.
These are designed to be worn as underwear, but you can wear them with knickers underneath if you prefer. They're your shorts - wear them your way.
The black ones work beautifully as swim shorts, and dry quickly, but the lighter colours will be a little transparent when wet.
