It was the Saturday before Easter and my kids were in bed and my husband was downstairs watching TV. I quietly sneak out a package that I bought myself. A package that I hoped would leave me looking like a million bucks for Easter morning. Out of this box I pull what’s known as shape wear but is more accurately called as a torture device. I spent a great deal of time pulling and tugging, pausing to catch my breath and reread the packaging to make sure I bought the correct size and then pulling and yanking some more. I finally got it on and I liked how it made my post-baby belly look but I hated the unflattering bulges it created. That night I vowed to never wear shape wear again and I found a new appreciation for my curves! My Easter morning attire left me feeling a little self-conscious but I was thankful to be able to breathe deeply and sit comfortably so I made my peace with it.
A few weeks later PopSugar and Jockey contacted me about reviewing their Jockey® Skimmies® slipshorts. Slipshorts are a fabulous combination of soft and stretchy slip in the shape of shorts. It’s very comfortable. Think yoga-pants-on-a-Saturday comfy. These comfy undergarments help smooth down unwanted bumps and bulges but they are not constricting like shapewear. I repeat, these are NOT shapewear – they are something much better!
Let’s review, they are comfortable and they smooth your shape to give you a lovelier silhouette.
As if that isn’t enough, here’s a list of other things these tiny woven wonders can do:
- – Make sliding out of a restaurant’s booth a breeze. Your legs won’t stick this summer!
- – Immodesty woes are gone! Bend over, cross your legs, let the wind blow where it may because you, my friend, are covered. Wear a skirt to the playground and go down the slide if you want. Embrace the freedom!
- – Eliminates irritation from thighs rubbing together. Women of all shapes and sizes get this and it can be down right bothersome. Now you can wear your summer dresses all day with confidence and comfort!
- – Smoothes down panty lines for a more modest appearance OR you could wear them in place of your panties should you choose.
- – Perfect for wearing (in the color nude) under white shorts! I love white shorts in the summer but it’s difficult to find a pair that are thick enough to not reveal every detail of what’s beneath them. These will provide an extra barrier of protection and a smoother silhouette to boot!
- – They stay put all day without rolling down or up. You won’t even remember you’re wearing them!
Before trying these I was happy with my lace waisted short skirt but now I don’t think I’ll ever wear it again. I want a pair of Skimmies® in every color! Why not have a smoother silhouette every time I wear a skirt or dress? I’m not sacrificing comfort and I’m gaining an extra bit of modesty.
I’m a fan and I hope you’ll give them a try and love them as much as I do!

I hate the feeling of shapewear – these sound fantastic! Will have to check them out!
Me too, my shapewear was easily the worse purchase I’ve ever made. These are great on their own but especially when you compare them to shapewear, they are fantastic!!
With extra skin, shapewear is needed, yet it’s awful with how it rolls down if its right at my waist. I need something that’ll help slim me down without rolling down, and is COMFY!
I’ve been hearing about these shorts! I’m going to try them.
If you get a chance let me know what you think! I bet you’ll love them.
I hadn’t heard of these but they sound fabulous for summer dresses. Thanks for the tip!
Yes, I’m so excited to finally be able to wear summer dresses!
I have never heard of these, but your post makes me want to try them!!
You should, they are tremendous! Maybe you could try them on someplace if you’re hesitant?
I have heard of these and would love them.. not for a dress but for my jeans. They look like they would help suck my gut in. I know they are not shape wear it I bet it might help.
They couldn’t hurt!! If you try them, let me know what you think!
Skimmies sound fantastic!! I am definitely going to enter the contest!
These sound awesome and I’d love to try them. They sound like they should be a wardrobe staple for all women. I am going to enter the contest but may have to invest in a pair
Yes, a definite staple! I already own three and plan on purchasing more. They lay the foundation for a great outfit. 🙂
I have never heard of these but they sound really good.I would love to try them.
Enter the contest and maybe you’ll win….or win $5,000. I’d take either! 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
I hate most shape wear because it is way too uncomfortable. This seems like a promising product.
Oh, I agree! Hate it, I passionately hate shapewear. You’ll love these though, Amy!
I’ve heard from people while promising a slimmer and more confident appearance, shapewear is just uncomfortable all around and not worth the promises. This sounds like one that’s comfortable WHILE keeping the promise of a slimmer shape 🙂
Well put, it is a great solution for a slimmer and more confident appearance! 🙂
I don’t think I’ve even seen these before, yet my mad hatred for the other sucker inners really makes me want one – now!! lol
You will love it, I just know it!! Sucker inners lol I like that!
I’ve never heard of this, but I’m totally interested! I think I would wear them with everything!
I’m feeling that way too! I got them for one dress in particular but I’m finding that I’m reaching for them no matter what I’m wearing.
I’ll definitely have to try this!
You should! If you do, let me know how you like them.
That sounds awesome! I would totally wear those.
Yes, I agree! 🙂 Thank you for your comment.
I need a pair for this summer. Thigh irritation is killer and I didn’t have thigh gap when I weighed 89 pounds!
Exactly!!! I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only one.
I have been looking at these! I wear a lot of sundresses in the spring and summer and these seem like they would be perfect!
Yes, yes, yes they are!! I’m so excited to be joining you in wearing sundresses. 🙂
I so need one of these especially after having 5 babies – my body is SO not the same!
I understand! What I feel like isn’t always reflected in what I see in the mirror. These will help smooth out what you have though. 🙂
Omgosh they sound awesome! Seriously, shapewear is a FIGHT to get on and I’m all about the yoga pants feeling 😉 Totally checking these out!
You will love them, I know it!!
these sound wonderful and even very comfortable.
Yes, surprisingly so!
this looks amazing! I would love to look better and have curves in all the right places
Yes, what woman wouldn’t want that?! Everyone should own these. 🙂
They sound great! What a wonderful way to feel more confident and comfortable.
Confident and comfortable – well said!
That is really great you don’t have to sacrifice comfort. These sound real interesting.
Yes, I couldn’t wear them without comfort…at least not on a regular basis like I wear these.
I have always hated how constricting shapewear can be. I definitely need to check these out!
Yes, it’s pretty intense, isn’t it? There’s no way I would wear that to the park to play with my kids but with these I wouldn’t think twice.
Oh, I have to try the Jockey Skimmies. I hate traditional slips. LOL
Me too and I didn’t realize just how much until I tried these!
Your kids are beautiful. I had no idea there was a product called skimmies
Aww, thank you! 🙂
I have never heard of these, but they sound amazing… I am not a fan of shapewear but these sound more up my ally. Thanks for sharing
You’re welcome! 🙂
I threw out all my slips years ago, but my mom always yells at me about my panty lines. lol. I think I need some of these skimmies!
Sounds like a perfect solution to me! 🙂
I have a pair of shapewear and I only wore them once because they felt so restricting and I felt like I couldn’t breath. These sound like they would be SO much more comfortable while giving you a lovely shape!
Yes, it’s the best of both worlds!
You’ve got me wanting to try the skimmies now.I had never heard of these before.
I haven’t heard of them until recently but since then I’m a huge supporter! I’ve told everyone I know about them and I already own three pair. 🙂
I WANT them!! I usually wear biker shorts under my stuff in the summer bc I hate that sweaty leg feeling!!
I wear biker shorts, too! So funny!
Really?! Ya’ll are way too smart for me. I would have never thought of that on my own. These have to be more comfortable though…and they come in cute colors!
Yes, that feeling is the worst!!
I usually skip wearing anything like that because it’s way to tight. Sounds like I need to give these a shot though.
That skirt is fabulous! I have a pair of something similar and I do find them to be convenient! I need to try these.
Your outfit is gorgeous. I love the pop of color that the skirt provides. I like that with the Jockey Skimmies you can breathe while still shaving off a few pounds.
Thank you! 🙂
Very interesting! I want to try these for sure. And I love your skirt!!!
Oh, thank you! 🙂
I haven’t heard about these. I like that they can help smooth everything down.
I hadn’t either until recently and I can’t help but tell everyone I know about them. It’s my new favorite product of the year. Love them!
This is a new to me product! You look great in the skirt, so I know they work. Thanks for sharing
Aww, thank you! 🙂
Short story, I went to a conference YEARS ago in Dallas not knowing that I’d be doing a ton of walking. I only brought skirts to wear because it was for work. After the first day, I couldn’t get out of bed from the chafing. OMG. Never again. Ever since I’ve always had something like these Skimmies!
Ooooouch!!! I really feel your pain as I’m just thinking about it. That feeling is the worst!
I have not heard of these but now I want to try one! A shaper that isn’t miserable sounds good to me.
Wow, shapewear that’s comfy? Definitely right up my alley! You look great!
Aww, thank you! 🙂
I am not even joking!! I have been on the search for athletic pants like this for all the reasons you mentioned in your post but they are all too thick for summer. I am so excited that you showed me these because I am getting them in EVERY color!!!
Yay!!! I’m so glad I could help. They come in quite the selection of colors so have fun shopping!
I’ve not heard of these, but my shape wear is anything but comfortable so I’m anxious to try these.
I know that feeling too well. :/ I think you’ll love these!
My sister hates every single shaping garment she’s tried. Have to share this with her 🙂
Yes, please do! I bet she’ll love them! They’re smoothing and not shaping – so comfy!
I bought shapewear once. It gave me double armpits lol
lol shapewear is awful….at least for me it was.
I have never liked a single shaper EVER! I am always willing to try new ones though in the hopes of finding one because after 6 babies I need all the shape help I can get.
6 babies? Kudos to you mom!! I think you’ll love these, they’ll smooth you but not uncomfortably shape you!
One of the most important things for me with shapewear is the rolling or sliding down. That drives me crazy. This pair sounds excellent!
I expected these too, I really did so I was pleasantly surprised when they didn’t. I think you’ll love these!
I’m ready. I just
Bought two new summer dresses today! I need skimmies!
After catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror today- I think i need to get these! Shapewear is normally horribly awkward!
Isn’t it!!! I was so glad no one was watching me pull them on or yank them off. It was quite a humbling process.
I love anything comfy! When they it makes me look good, well then I just have to have it!
Win-win, right!? 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
I could use all the help I can get. I NEED Skimmies to help me look good in summer dresses!!
Wow I gotta try those! Something that is easy to get into and comfy and help you look better sound unbelievable!
Skimmies sound amazing! I love to wear summer dresses!
I need these! I don’t like shapewear, but I also feel the need to have something underneath!
Now that sounds like what I need. After baby #3 I invested in some “shapewear” but it leaves me feeling all weird shaped and contorted. I will have to check these out.
Never hears of these but I am intrigued. Going to check this out. Thanks!
Ooh I’m totally ordering some of these! I need something to help with this baby belly for sure.
I think I could use a pair of these! I’ve heard good things about them!!
These sound really great. I have a pair a shorts I wear under skirts and this sounds way better!
Sounds like something I would probably really like. I’ll have to check them out!
They do sound a lot better than old school slim wear
That is a ton of benefits. I laughed at the sliding out of a booth, that’s def. a great benefit. 🙂
Ashley, you look FAB in your skimmies!! And, if skimmies can make me look like you… I need a pair or two… like YESTERDAY 🙂
haha you are too sweet! …but thank you! 🙂
You are most welcome, pretty lady!!
I just can’t do shape wear because I find them so uncomfortable. These do however sound much more comfy though.
I think they seem to better than the old school ones!
We have a Jockey store in our area. The town about 20 miles to our east was where Jockey products used to be made back in the 60’s & 70’s – they have moved production overseas I like and trust the Jockey name
There really is something wonderful about a pair of great, soft, comfy undies!
Ashley, could you BE any cuter in these pictures?
Aww, you are too sweet. Thank you!
They sound and look really comfy and cute. I will have to check them out!
These sound fantastic! I love that they are not painful and don’t feel like a torture device like most shapewear
I need skimmies in a few colors. This is something I’ve been looking out for these!!
These sound perfect for the wedding i am in this summer. I don’t need shapewear, I just need something to smooth me out without sucking me in.
I want to try these. Going to go enter! Btw, YOU are gorgeous!
I might have to try those! My current shape wear is constricting. Curbs my eating cause I can’t fit anything else in it!
One last thing… God forbid you have to use the bathroom- I need an easy on and easy off.
Love that they are comfy. Most of the time shapewear is not comfy so to have an alternative – SO nice!
I will definitely be checking these out. Especially with my sundresses!
These sound great. We could all use a little smoothing out.
I can’t wait to try these. I love that they are not super tight and uncomfortable
I need some of these for my upcomign recital! They seem like they would be perfect under my costumes
These are great when you want to dress up and look your best. I like that you mentioned that they are not super tight.
Oh I hate sliding out of leather booths while wearing shorts, it’s the pits. I’ve never heard of these before so I’ll have to look into them.
I saw these and immediately wanted to try them. Glad to hear your review!
This sounds like a dream product! Comfortable shapewear? I want to buy it in every color and style! It is so hard to be modest, comfortable, and stylish when we have to chase after a small child 🙂
I’d love to give these a try.
