It’s no secret that I’m a plus sized gal – well, now anyway. But, I always say that being plus sized doesn’t mean that you need to sacrifice your style! There are a lot of things you can wear that are not only fashionable but also comfy, even during the summer months. Living in Hawaii means that summers are warm and humid, so dressing comfortably is not only important, but also ideal. During the summer I absolutely live in dresses and shorts, and if I had my way, short dresses would be my go-to since they are not only easy to wear and cool, but comfortable. But since I’m a plus sized woman, short dresses mean that they can often hike up on their own quite easily since my bum and my chest have a mind of its own. Because of this, I’m always on the hunt for undergarments that will not only provide support, but also be easy to wear during this time. Plus Size Summer Style - How Skimmies Saved My Summer Fashion Recently I was introduced to Jockey® Skimmies Slipshorts. I have tried many and I truly put the emphasis on many slimming and smoothing undergarments over the years – even during my skinnier years… and have not found one as comfortable as these. You can quote me on that too! So what in the world are Skimmies? I have the long length size in an XXL. These undergarments are microfiber stretch shorts that are used for smoothing coverage under skirts. They are lightweight, offer a sleek design without constriction and come in a variety of colors. They fit so comfortably, I literally forget that I’m wearing them and they are absolutely perfect for the days I want to use my shorter dresses or mini skirts. They not only cover your bum, but they keep your panty lines to a minimum and offer anti-static defense for those days you are using your favorite flowy skirts. I find that they work so well under my maxi skirts on those days I feel a little bloated and can seem to fit anything right and they are now my favorite “must-have” to wear under my cute and flirty short dresses. Plus Size Summer Style - How Skimmies Saved My Summer Fashion I have them in white, but plan to pick them up in black and nude because I love them so. In the past, I have had issues with similar undergarments riding up on my thighs and so constricting that it made it hard to sit, or breathe. If that wasn’t the problem, they were so tight or uncomfortable and it was unbelievably hot that wearing them was just unbearable. Jockey’s Skimmies are made of a comfortable microfiber fabric, breathable and easy to wear. They stretch well and even fit me so well that I forget that I’m a plus size woman sometimes. I also forget that I’m wearing them and I never have to worry about flashing anyone when I’m wearing a short dress. Plus Size Summer Style - How Skimmies Saved My Summer Fashion Skimmies are available in three types: Original Skimmies® which are available in short and long lengths and are perfect for a smooth & polished look under your favorite dresses, Anti-static Skimmies® that are great to wear under pants or cotton fashions and Wicking Skimmies® which are great for working out and have moisture-wicking which is a quick dry fabric to help prevent chafing. Plus Size Summer Style - How Skimmies Saved My Summer Fashion They have a silky-smooth microfiber stretch fabric that offers great coverage without restriction. I love that it is easy to wear under pants or cotton clothing and you don’t have to worry about cling. The wide, flat leg hem is designed for a stay-put fit and the targeted stretch zones help to flatter your natural curves. If you are looking for an undergarment that is breathable, cool, comfortable and doesn’t make you feel like you’re wearing a coat – these are definitely a great solution. They work just like a slip, covers like shorts and are definitely my new go-to and must-have. Jockey Skimmies range from $20 – $22 and are available in sizes to fit from small to 2xl. They come in white, black and nude and a few other colors like grey and blue (depending on the type you select). The options are great and the price is right. Plus Size Summer Style - How Skimmies Saved My Summer Fashion So how have Skimmies saved my summer?  This gal will be comfortable in whatever I choose to wear; especially my cute mini dresses and not have to worry about offering those around me a free peep show of what’s underneath.  But, I do not have to sacrifice comfort and style for protection and I certainly don’t have to spend an arm and a leg for it too!

    I absolutely need these. Are they available in any stores or are they strictly online?!

    • I believe they are only available at Jockey Outlet stores which are all over the US. The site has a store locator. I haven’t seen them anywhere in local stores, but I am totally keepin’ an eye out because they are so comfy.

  5. I need these!! I have found that anything I’ve ever worn under a dress (I’m paranoid of giving sneak peeks as well, hahah) ALWAYS rides, so glad to hear these dont!

    • girl.. you would love them, they really do stay in place and do not move, but they feel so comfortable I forget I have them on.

    I need some of these! I tried similar and they always “roll” down at the waist and it drives me NUTS

  7. I have cling problems with knitwear so these would be wonderful for that.

  8. Wow, I need this. I have issues wearing short dresses because they do have a mind of their own, and this would be perfect. <3 You look super cute, btw! 😉

  9. I would like to be #SavedBySkimmies for the days I choose to wear a dress instead of shorts when I am spending the day with my kids.

    Having 2 yr old, wearing dresses/skirts are impossible if you care about decency in public, so this would save me big time!

  26. These would be great for under dresses and skirts. I always feel self-conscious when walking up steps or when a breeze comes along. It also feels too bulky to wear even thin shorts under them. These would be perfect for coverage AND comfort.

  27. I’m always on the hunt for shorts I can wear under dressed that won’t RIDE UP. Drives me crazy.

  28. They looks so comfy! I can’t wait to be saved by Skimmies! Great with any summer skirts!
