They boast a seamless design and are high waisted, which means they are supportive around the stomach as well as the thigh area, but also give a smooth finish even when worn under skirts or dresses.

Plus they come in three colourways: white, opaline and black - so there's a pair to suit whatever summer ensemble you want to throw on.

The shapewear item is available in dress sizes 8 to 22 and cost a mere £12 - so what's not to love?

You may find you quickly go back for more, as one customer ended up buying six pairs!

What the reviews say

Shoppers can’t get enough of the products, which have received on average 4.5 stars out of five.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • "I bought one pair and found them so comfortable, I now have 6 pairs."

  • "Bought some of these last year and found they did a great job in stopping my legs from rubbing when it’s hot. Fit really well and give you some support around the tummy and bottom."

  • “Kept me cool, stopped my inner thighs from getting hot and rubbing together, easy to pull on and off, good quality material as I thought I would snag them like tights and didn’t. Loved them so much.”

  • “Lovely thick waistline that sits nice and low on me. Thin stretchy fabric, really smooth and flattering under clothes. Nice length for when you're wearing skirts and dresses, gives you a sense of protection if there's a sudden gust of wind!”

  • "Yesss, I can wear dresses again! Very comfortable, perfect fit and length. They don't ride up, they don't fall down and they're not too tight around the waist."

  • "Comfy and cool ... very thin and the white may not be suitable as actual cycling shorts, but they are good as underwear."

  • "I don't often write reviews, but felt I had to for these if it means someone else is 'released' from the burden of sore rubbing thighs!! These have been brilliant on my recent holiday abroad where it has been in the high 90s. I normally avoid wearing dresses as my thighs rub and get really sore. They have totally changed that and I am even wearing them with loose fitting trousers as they feel so much more comfortable. If you are unsure then all I can say is give them a go, they are really comfortable, I didn't find they made me sweaty...Can't recommend them enough!"
