The summer months may bring sunshine and blue skies, but with them come sweltering temperatures, which is why shoppers love to layer these “must-have” moisture-wicking shorts under their favorite dresses and skirts.

Designed to provide some smoothing, breathable coverage, Jockey’s popular Slipshorts are great for keeping you cool and giving you a little extra coverage, according to shoppers. Reviewers have also discovered that the affordable and comfortable shorts are the ultimate solution to thigh chafing, calling them a “summer essential.”

Unlike some shapewear, which can feel tight, restricting, and especially hot during the summer months, these stretchy shorts are made to feel light and breathable while offering gentle support. And, coming in at just $12, you can stock your drawer with both the beige and black hues. If the rave reviews are any indication, you’re going to want a few pairs!

“These are perfect,” one reviewer wrote. “They provide support, don’t make you sweat, prevent chafing, and are very comfortable. I ended up buying two more!”

Shoppers love them even more than similar pieces from higher-end brands, praising their comfortable, roll-free design. “These are great. I was looking for ‘shapewear’ to wear underneath dresses and skirts, not necessarily for tummy tucking or slimming, but just to have an extra layer of defense against wind, etc.,” another reviewer shared. “It's exactly what I was looking for and you can't beat $12! I have [another] pair and they always roll up on my thighs and are super uncomfortable. These Jockeys are way better.”

While you can certainly protect your legs with a dab of anti-chafing balm and other topicals, these shorts will protect your skin all day — no re-application necessary. With the unofficial start of summer just a few weeks away, we have a feeling that dress-lovers will be flocking to Target to grab these inexpensive shorts. If breezy dresses and skirts are your summertime go-tos, you’ll want to grab at least one pair, if not a few, before they’re out of stock.
