Light Shorty is rated out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lizzypops from Fit small, till you wash them! I've had several pairs of these shorts for years, love them! No VPL at all. Bought some new ones which fit small initially, until you wash them, so I basically washed them all first! They are also not a source high rise as they used to be, shame but still wearable. The scalloped edge really works to stop vpl.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tigaseye from Both Fit and Fabric Has Changed Bought these when they originally came out and they were pretty good, although not perfect. I always go up in a size for (under)pants, as they tend to come up smaller than regular clothes, for some unknown reason, and I don't like them close-fitting, so I went for the Large. Bought them again a few months ago, not realising they had changed them, so didn't bother trying them on. The fabric is now less smooth - think it's got more cotton in it, so I can live with that - but they have also grown in size to what is probably nearer a true Large, or even approaching an Extra Large. The old ones used to roll down, but these not only roll down, they virtually fall off, so now I'm stuck with a load of far-too-big pants! To solve the rolling problem, what I could really do with is the bottom half of these to remain the same (or the same as they were, ideally) and the top half to have some kind of mid-rise waist type narrowing/shaping. So that they have something to cling on to (i.e. my waist), but still don't leave a panty line at the back, or sides. I'd still kind of recommend them, as they are, but would recommend buying your true size now (or even one smaller); not a larger one

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeeH from Lovely everyday underwear Have only worn them twice so don't know how they will stand up to repeated washing and wearing, but new the fit is great and they're very comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Purple One from Very happy I've bought these shorties for years and love them. A little anxious about reviews citing poorer quality material and sizing issues I ordered some more and found them true to size and still of similar quality. Phew

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulaV from Fantastic Service I have been searching for the shortys for ages and I went to Figleaves, asked online about them and I knew it was what I was looking and have since ordered a couple of times and I am delighted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hairygreek from Used to be great, only OK now I have had these several times and needed some new pairs, I also bought black. The fabric quality is much thinner than before and is slightly less deep. They still don't show a VPL under close fitting trousers, which is why I buy them, but they are definitely a lesser purchase now. Shame, why do companies do this and cut costs when they have a winner on their hands?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emelie from Very Comfortable I was looking for some underwear to wear under my Pilates leggings as I don't like to have a knicker line showing through, these are just what I was looking for, very smooth.
