Now we can no longer live in loungewear day-in and day-out, we've got our eyes peeled for the next best thing.

These Culottes with Cool Comfort™ Technology from Marks & Spencer fit the bill.

Designed to be worn under dresses or skirts, they'll help you stay just as comfy and cool as you were when hanging out at home all day, by preventing chafing and removing any fear of accidentally exposing yourself in a strong breeze.

Why we rate them:

An item that flatters while looking good and feeling good gets a big tick from us, and these culottes definitely tick the box.

Featuring M&S' special Cool Comfort™ technology, the lightweight fabric comes with added stretch for easy movement and even easier style.

The design also comes in black and white, so you can be sure there will be no VPL in your lovely white linen this summer. 

Customers also note that the culottes are a better solution than our usual summer go-to: the slip. 

Why, you ask? Well, the breathable culottes won't slip around as you move, plus will stop chafing and give you that streamlined silhouette you're after.  

What the reviews say:

With over 200 reviews, the comfy culottes are backed up by hundreds of happy customers. Some shoppers say they come up a little on the big size, so you may want to opt for a size smaller. 

  • "Second culottes I've purchased from M&S (two different sizes). Ideal for wearing under thin material culottes or baggy trousers and also comfortable with a flowing skirt. Nowt to complain about."

  • "These are a must for everyone. They are so comfy and do not ride up!"

  • "These are great, better than a slip during all this hot weather. No more chafing!"

  • "Very light and comfortable coming to just above the knee on me and completely reducing any thigh rubbing, particularly uncomfortable when it gets hot."

  • "I bought this to wear under a linen dress. The culottes are light and cool to wear and there is absolutely no static. A quick wash was all that was required to freshen up and they were dry within a couple of hours."

  • "I now have these in all three colours - really comfortable as a slip under dresses, stopping thigh chafe and making skirts hang better without getting wrapped around legs when walking."

  • "These culottes are perfect to wear under this season’s floaty midi and maxi dresses. Better than a slip they move around less but still provide both an element of structure to a lighter material dress and confidence that you won’t end up loosing your dignity...they are brilliant and I’ll be buying more."
